Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

My kenmore elite refrig keeps leaking water from what appears to be condensation. It gets so bad that the ice maker door freezes shut and water actually drips on the floor. The freezer is set to 0 while the refrig is set to 37. Any suggestions.


Answers :

The high level of condensation is due to constant opening of the fridge when the frost develops. It is required to defrost off the condensation and if this has an auto mode timer for defrost , then it is possible that it is not working.
\012The water must drain out to the drain tank but since it is formed out of the freezer the water flows out of the collection tray.

First, items in refrigerator started to freeze, finally noticed ice maker was making too much ice and water was dripping into frige and down into freezer and onto floor. Emptied ice and saw that ice had blocked the ice maker shut off from rising. Now, we get water through the dispensor, it does not make ice anymore, and things are still freezing in the refrigerator even after adjusting digital temp settings on door.

Freezer & freezer work fine. Water stops when refrige is set at 38 degrees. To keep water from freezing we have to set the refrige temp to 40 degrees, but find that temp not cold enough. Water can be found on bottom floor inside refrige where bottom bin is and it is partially frozen. At times I have water on the floor in front of refrige. I can solve the problem temporarily by turning off appliance and let it thaw.

My Maytag side-by-side refrig is acting weird. The freezer side is freezing alright and the refrig side isn't. Now, I took apart the inside covers on the freezer side and the condenser was all iced up. The fan above it was running fine. I shut everything down to its lowest setting, took a hair dryer and proceeded to rid the condenser of all the ice. I noticed it has what appears to be a heating element under the condenser. I've since returned all setting to their previous setting and I await th

Water accumulates and freezes in the bottom of the freezer compartment. Eventually, I find a big puddle of water on the floor of the kitchen. Shutting off the icemaker seems to help, but then I have no ice. What's wrong? Also, the refrigerator, which is 18 years old, seems to run pretty much all the time. If I turn the dial to OFF it stops OK, and when I set it at mid-range (5) it doesn't come back on again immediately, but when it does come on it again seems to shut down reluctantly, alt
