Fridge leaking water

Have a 5 year old Kenmore Cold spot. Not hooked up to any external water, and its leaking water (freezer above) seemingly from the "top" somewhere down into the various trays. Settings are all at nominal and suggested marks. The water seems to be predominately on the left hand side, and some is freezing in the lower drawers. My assumption is that it is condensation as there is obviously no other source. Any suggestions as whats going on or how to resolve..........Doc

There should be a drain in the bottom of the fridge part. See if its blocked or otherwise plugged. It drains to a pan underneath where it is supposed to evaporate.

try unplugging for a few days and clean up inside and underside [coils etc.] if frozen drain will thaw out.

Guess what? You probably have a clogged condensate drain. Its there so all that condensate thats melted off in defrost mode can leave. Cant tell you were to look for it, but most terminate in a pan on top of the compressor, or in a pan in front of, or behind the fan under the unit.

Check the defroster drain hole and see if it is not plugged. To locate the drain hole, go to the Sears/Kenmore website to look it up.
Good Luck -

and unplug and defrost completely perhaps using outdoor temps for food storage and coolers from the neighbors, and a 20" window fan and lots of old towels and plastic bins to catch the melting ice. maybe the kids left the door ajar over the holidays, maybe your defrost timer is shot, maybe your coils are dirty below or behind, maybe the kitchen is too hot or the garage location is too cold.

Good point. Never forget that it is winter!
This applies also in the thread about whether one can run a refigerator in the garager when it is 5 degrees out. Why would one bother? It's not going to make the food warmer.

Remove NOPSAM to email me. Please let me know if you have posted also.

Hi,
No model# posted :(
Possible the defrost drain system is clogged or restricted and some of the defrost water is spilling out inside the refrigerator.

Might get by doing an overnight defrost with the doors open or may need to flush out the drain hose.
