Question about Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker

Water leaking into freezer

I have a Kenmore Model #795.75542401 Elite Trio Refrigerator with bottom freezer.  During the last couple of weeks I've had a problem with a layer of ice building up at the bottom of the freezer.  I've cleaned the ice out about 5 times, but the it keeps coming back.  The ice is clean and clear, and I suspect that it's coming from the ice maker.
Have you heard of a similar problem happening, and if so, what area of the ice maker should I be looking at to fix it?

    I have a layer of ice that keeps building up in the bottom of my freezer. I have the Kenmore Trio about 5 years old. I also had the frost build up. I turned of the freezer portion deforsted and then the Ice layer keeps coming back. What do I do?

    I also have this problem. Frost also with build up of ice on bottom. I believe frost comes when you can not close freezer door all the way.



    Ice build up bottom of freezer and after awhile you have problem closing freezer door tightly. Where is water coming from.?

It may be the defrost thermostat. This thermostat turns on a heater in the freezer a couple of times a day and melts the ice in the freezer which should go into a tube that leads to a pan underneath the refrigerator, where it sits and evaporates from the heat of the compressor. It could also be the timer which tells the refrigeator to turn off a couple of times a day and tells the defrost thermostat to turn on.

Check for cracks in the water supply tube from the house plumbing valve to the ice maker. Could also be the valve itself.

Turn off valve for a day to diagnose which.

The bottom of the freezer keeps getting a layer of ice. I take the ice out about once a week. Now there is so much ice that it is leaking water on to the floor before it freezes. We have a Kenmore elite...


The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear cover.

1 year old Kenmore Elite Trio Refridgerator not cooling


There are a lot of things that could be the source of the problem... is there no cooling at all going on in the freezer? Is the back wall of the freezer cold? It could be anything from a fan, to the compressor, to the control board... you need a technician.

I would get on the phone with Sears, and explain the continuing problems you have been having, and they may agree to cover service.

Elite trio


Hello bigmikeegator
Welcome!

You said, you have the Kenmore Elite Trio Bottom Freezer. You moved your refrigerator to a new home and removed the bottom freezer door, but can not seem to figure out exactly how to put it back on correctly.


It's too much for me to tell you myself.
This is easier!
Page 9 shows you how to remove and reinstall doors.
