Our Kenmore refer model 61182100 leaks water from the freezer

Resolved Question:

Our Kenmore refer model 61182100 leaks water from the freezer unit into the refer unit below. In other refrigerators we have this condensation runs into an evaporator pan underneath the unit. Where is the condensation in this model supposed to go?...and why isn't it?

Bryan--

 

We are using this refer more during the summer and the problem has cropped up again. I did not do anything after your last response because there wasn't much of a problem through the fall and winter. The model number does have a 106 preceding

61182100. Could you check the parts diagram and let me know where the drain tube is? Last year before I first contacted you I took all that apart because the openings into the refer were frozen over, and did not see the drain tube or any way the water could drain...

 

Thanks--

okay John, you really can't see the drain hole in any of the diagrams, they really don't show it, but I can tell you that if you remove the back panel and the bottom plate in the freezer you will see the coils(silver) behind the panel, in the very center of those coils underneath there is a drain hole, it may be covered with a sheet of ice or it may not be, what you need to do is boil some really hot water and pour it under the coils and when the water starts to cool off sop it up with a towel and pour more hot water until the water drains down the drain hole freely, you will know this when the water starts to go down, the diagrams don't show anything that I can point to as the drain hole, sorry but there is one in it's in the center under the coils, once the water starts to flow down through the hole your all set, hope this helps, thanks, Bryan
