Hi all, any help is appreciated here... I am no handyman, but if
pointed in the right direction, I can hold my own...
My wife and I have a Kenmore (Elite) Refrigerator, freezer on top
model. We bought it when we bought our home, so it is less than 4 years
Every summer it is the same thing; frost accumulated in one section
near the opening of the freeze, and the vents in the back tend to have
some frost drops on it...
All I can assume is a bad seal... slipping in a sheet of paper tells me
the seal holds fine (although, I am strong enough to pull it out, with
The Refrigerator portion on bottom has short, stubby icicles hanging
from the top in the back, with small puddles of water on my top glass
I clean the coils yearly.
Would the seals on both the fridge and the freezer go bad after 3
years? If I need new seals, where would a guy like me look to buy them,
how much am I looking at spending, and is installation easy?
Oddly enough (or maybe not so oddly) in the winter time, it doesnt do
this. I live in Alabama, so sometimes it is so humid outside that you
have to swim through the air with SCUBA gear.
any help is appreciated!
P.S.... it is worth mentioning that upon some research on google, I
came across what appeared to be a repairmans blog... the customers
problem sounded similar to mine:
2003 Sears Kenmore Top Freezer Refrigerator(Frigidaire
built)(Model#25363722300): Leaking water in refrigerator section in
defrost cycle, Needs upgraded ferrule, part#240365901, replaced, worked
This part is used in the evaporator section, it tunnels the defrost
water to the defrost drain in the back control panel trough, down
through drain line to the bottom drip pan.
The complaint the customer will say is happening is that defrost water
is dripping on the top glass shelf of the Refrigerator Section.
