Question and Answers

Q:

refrigerator model # 79575193400 leaking into freezer and building up on bottom shelf sometimes leaks out onto floor

A:

Check the ice maker fill tube if your model has an ice maker installed and it is functioning. If you find no problems with the ice maker water supply then you will need to unplug the refrigerator and remove the evaporator cover (inside back wall of the freezer compartment). The bottom drawer and the ice maker will need to be removed before you can remove that cover. The first image below shows how to remove the freezer drawer in your type of refrigerator. You model may look slightly different than the one shown in the image below but the basic procedure is the same. The second image shows how the evaporator cover is removed. You will probably find several screws that secure that evaporator cover. Once you remove that cover, you may see a frozen drain tube on the drain pan under the evaporator. Defrost the ice with a hot air gun (or hair dryer on low heat). Pour some hot water down that drain tube to clear it. Defrosting and clearing that drain path may fix this problem in that situation.

This is an advanced repair. If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

Q:

my frig model 7957193400 water freezes on bottom of freezer drawer

A:

I suspect the defrost water drain is stopped up and is leaking into the bottom of the drawer and refreezing. If you pull the freezer drawer and look at the back wall of the freezer you will probably see some ice buildup there.

To unstop this drain the back panel of the freezer must be removed and the drain cleaned.

I recommend you call 1-800-469-4663 or go to www.searshomeservices.com and schedule service for a Sears technician to diagnose and repair the refrigerator.
