I have an older 363.9552414. Water appears periodically on the floor in front of the refrigerator. It is hard to see just where it is coming from. There does not seem to be a drain hole in the refrigerator part, but there is a drain hole in the freezer section. There is a buildup of ice around the drain hole, and a thin sheet of ice on the floor of the freezer section. So my guess is the freezer drain hole is blocked, perhaps by ice, and water is building up and then leaking out the front p

... Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator

Ever since I've owned my fridge (coming up on 4 years), the freezer would build up into a big chunk of ice causing the freezer temp to drop and the fridge temp to rise. I would melt the chunk of ice and then drain the water from the back of the fridge. It would work properly for a few months and then start happening again. Now, its happening with more frequency. Currently, the freezer temp is holding around 0 and the fridge temp is up around 55-60.

The freezer side of my refrigerator steadily builds up deposits of ice. I have checked the drain and it is clear. I have checked the door seals and they are AOK. The temperature varies between -20C and 0 or even +4C, so icecream melts or is very soft and water drips off items in the freezer. The compressor seems to run a very large proportion of the time. Could it be that the defrost heating element is not working?


Most refrigerators would build up ice in their panels sooner or later depending on the use and how it is maintained. It would be best that this the ice ice removed or defrosted once build up is seen and do the cleaning at the same time. Ice may ac ... Refrigerators
