Question and Answers

Q:

Why does the tray under my Kenmore Elite refrigerator fill with water every 8-10 hours?

A:

It sounds like the tray that you are describing is the drain tray for the automatic defrost system in this refrigerator. The refrigerator will stop every 8 to 10 hours and go into a defrost cycle. A heater element below the evaporator in the freezer will energize to melt frost build-up on the fins of this evaporator. The condensate will drip into a pan under the evaporator. This condensate water is then directed into the drain pan underneath the refrigerator through a drain tube. This condensate water is evaporated off using the heat from the condenser and the air circulation of the condenser fan. It normally disappears before the next defrost cycle.

If this is what you are seeing, it is normal for this type of refrigerator. If the unit is cooling properly, you should have no problems or failures in the refrigerator.

If you have a different problem than what is described above, resubmit your question with additional details.

Q:

The tray under my fridge fills up and overflows every 8-10 hours. It is a Kenmore elite. What now??

A:

If the tray is overflowing it is probably because either the refrigerator or freezer door gasket is not sealing properly.

Use the dollar bill test to determine where the gasket or gaskets are leaking.

Take a dollar bill and open the refrigerator door. Place the dollar bill so the door gasket will close on it. Close the refrigerator door and pull the dollar bill out. You should feel a slight resistance in removing the dollar bill. Move over the width of the dollar bill and repeat this process. Do this all the way around both refrigerator and freezer doors and mark any places where there is no resistance.

Clean the surface of the gaskets and the front of the cabinet with a clean cloth and hand dishwashing detergent and dry. Try the dollar bill in the areas of no resistance again. If there is still no resistance the door gasket needs to be replaced.

Q:

I have a YT4000 24 HP lawn Tractor. It is very hard starting when it is cold and I am using the choke. It cranks a full 8-10 seconds.

A:

Without a model number, I can't pull up any information on your tractor.

It sounds like the tractor is performing normally. When the weather is cold, it takes more gasoline to fire the cylinder. The engine has to turn over more times to draw the extra gas into the carburetor.

I doubt there is any thing that can be done to make your tractor start sooner.
