Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the control setting and cooling conditions. There is an updated faster fan motor # 4389142 that will help resolve this problem. It's available at http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/4389142/0046/106?pathTaken=directMatch&filterPart=&pop=flush&prst=0&shdPart=4389142&sid=MMLxexpertxmerch . Do not use the new blade in this kit. Use the original blade. I hope this will help you.

I have a 2001 model 106.78902891 that has a similar problem. Water leaking into the refrigerator from above. The bottom of the freezer is frozen, the drain plug is frozen. If the solution is the same, how do you get into the back of the refrigerator...it is a big panel with no visable srews apart from the lower panel. Gary

A:

The information you have already received is correct, even though this is a different model. An estimate for this repair could be from 150.00 to 250.00 dollars. I'm listing additional information to correct this type of problem.

Water will leak into the refrigerator when the drain system freezes up. Every time the unit goes into a defrost cycle, water will run down into the refrigerator, instead of down the drain. To clear the drain, remove everything in the freezer, so the back panel can be removed (see picture). First disconnect power to the unit. With the panel removed, you will see the evaporator coil and directly under the coil is the drain trough (pan). The trough will probably be full of ice that will need to be removed. With the ice out of the trough, you will be able to see the drain hole, which will be plugged with ice. Use hot water to clear the drain hole. Keep working the hot water into the hole and wiping the excess water. This can take quite awhile, depending on how deep the ice is. This will need to be done until you get a good water flow down to the bottom drain pan. With the drain system clear, water should stop leaking in the refrigerator. If you would like more assistance, additional details will be needed.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Safety Notice: Be sure to disconnect the appliance before performing any troubleshooting procedures. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks or repairs that might be recommended, please contact a local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.

A:

Everyday when your refrigerator goes through the automatic defrost cycle the water should drain down & out to a holding pan under the refrigerator. If the defrost drain is blocked you will get water dripping into the refrigerator section. On something like this you will need to remove the freezer rear panel & floor section to access the defrost drain pan. You can use hot water to help defrost the block of ice & flush out the drain line that goes from the top to the bottom of the refrigerator. Please see the images provided below for access instructions.
