:Dhello all master appliantologists!

   I would love to be a master anything, but I apprecaite all of you. What a great website!

  Anyway, I sold my house a few days ago, so I thought it may be time ot fix the leaky frige! I saw the pictures and diagrams on this website and i am thinking that i need to remove the plastic/styrofoam cover in the back of the refrigerator so that I can clean out the drain cup or drip pan. My problem is i can't figure out how to get that thing off without breaking it! HELP?!? Any advice would be appreciated. I really can't pass on this problem to the new owner.

                Thanks~ leelee

Help!!! please!!! If anyone has any ideas on how to remove the air diffuser cover on a kenmore coldspot model # 106.9651753.  The back of the air diffuser and top two rectangular holes drip water every few days.  I really need to fix it right away.  Any advice would be appreciated.    Thanks, leelee

Best way to attack this is to remove the bottom panel (item 25) and the panel in the back of the freezer (item 16). Chances are that you have a blocked defrost drain, which you will see underneath the evaporator (in the back of the freezer).

hello Mad Mac!

   Thanks a million! I really appreciated your help and the time you took to send a diagram. I did everything you said to do. Now I have a few questions...

   Was I supposed to clean out that sheet of ice that was under the bottom panal?

  Is the drain the hole that's in the back that opens up to the refrgerator?

  There was a a piece of plastic that looked like a block in that hole, but it was a part that belonged there just maybe pushed out of place so I moved it.  ???

 I also cleaned the ice out, in the way back on the silver part that the drips flow down onto. Was that the right thing to do?

I am obviously not an appliantologist, but I like that word!

                                            Anyway, thanks again.  I hope the problem is solved and I hope I didn't create a new problem.:yikes:                        If you can let me know that would be so wonderful.

                                                                                          :D    your new friend,    leelee

The drain is the hole in the middle of where the water drips into. This needs to be clear, then the defrost water will run down to a pan on top of your compressor.  The sheet of ice under the bottom panel is just another symptom of the same problem, you should clear that out.

Hello Again~

   The ice in my freezer is just continuing to bulid up again under the bottom panal after I removed what I thought was blockage.  What i did was I moved a piece of plastic ,that is a part in the drain hole, out of the way. Was this maybe part of the drain? I also removed all the ice.

I waited a few days and it is still leaking. 

Is there any way I can check the drain cup to see if the is the problem? Is there something else i can do at this point. What would you all do?                  

                                                                                                              Thanks,

                                                                                                              leelee

Run something long and skinny down the drain hole and pour hot water in there till it runs out into the pan underneath the box. Until this drain is clear, you will still have the same problem.

Leelee, you might try tilting your box back towards the wall.Possibly the water is seeking it's own level, and you want it to run downhill.
