Thank you for your question.

Having an ice build up under the drawer of the freezer can be a concern.

If you have an icemaker on this model you may be having a build up of ice in the ice cube bucket? If it is, the water valve may be weeping, and would need to be replaced.

The freezer door may not sealing tightly enough or the defrost drain is plugged and the defrost water is not leaving the freezer and running down under the drawer.

  • You will need to remove all the food out of the freezer and store it temporarily in a cooler if you have one. If not use a clothes basket lined with towels for insulation.

  • Remove the drawer and thaw out the ice. If you see ice up under the back evaporator panel, then the defrost drain is plugged and you will need to use a hair blower dryer to melt the ice, and clean the drain, at the bottom left of the floor under the evaporator.

Note: you may need to remove the back evaporator panel to get better access to this area.

If after checking this it is not the problem, please use the link to tells in a little more detail what you have found and we will be glad to help you further.

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 .

I hope this helps.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

Why do I have water lying in the bottom of my refrigerator?

A:

If this is a top mount refrigerator, the problem will probably be caused from a frozen drain. Unfortunately the model number submitted doesn't seem to be a good number. I can't access any information with it. If this is a top mount here is what happens and what you can do:

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. 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 need more assistance, you can resubmit your question with more details and please recheck and include a complete model number.
