Question and Answers
evpa drain tray water freezes before it can get to drip pan 59679142990 Kenmore 22' bottom freezer refrigerator
Thank you for your question. I'm sorry you are having this problem with the fridge. Water will leak into the freezer when the drain system freezes up. Every time the unit goes into a defrost cycle, water will run down into the freezer, instead of down the drain. To clear the drain, remove everything in the freezer, so the back panel can be removed. 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. A hair dryer works well for this. Just be careful not to get it too hot. 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. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

Cleaning the coils under the refrigerator is always a good idea. The refrigerator might have a problem in the defrost system, a failed fan motor, failed compressor, or a wire broken or burned off somewhere.
The best thing to do is clean the coils and check the condenser fan motor and compressor to see if they are running.
You can go to Home Services and get a Sears technician to repair the refrigerator.
