Good chance you do have a clogged drain. I'm not able to find the model # you have listed, but the drain is usually going to be on the back wall in the fresh food section. There is usually a cup the defrost water runs into and then runs down a tube on the back wall of the refrig. Not sure that is exactly the way, on this unit.

Can you double check that model #?

Default model #

Hi Frank,

our landlord purchased the fridge for us from an estate sale, and I was trying to look up a manual, too. it seems the closest I can get to is 25 37 81 in the kenmore manual help, but it seems like a just "regular" top mount refrigerator with ice maker in that model line. The series is LA 80909516.

I am usually pretty handy with taking things apart, I am just not sure where to take something off ;-) to get to de-clogging the drain line. You are right, there is a small drip cup inside the fridge, and a line in the back that is supposed to feed into the drip pan.

Thanks, Sabrina

You'll need to get the manual from Sears, can't help with that. There are usually a couple of screws holding the cup in. I've also see some where it just snaps in. If you remove that cup good chance you'll see some "gunk" that will need to be cleaned out. If it's clean, you'll need to try and devise a way to push some air down the tube to blow it out. If you have a turkey baster or something similar, you can try squirting/flushing water down it also.

Default Thanks and one more question

Hi again, your answer gave me enough confidence to get out the little drip cup in the fridge - no screws, just push-in-bolts. The drain was/is (?) indeed clogged, and I tried to push the stuff through. I had a hard time finding a workable angle to apply any pressure, air or water. So my last question: would it be safe to un-mount the cooling coils that are attached to the fridge with two screws on the back, on the outside? Then I could reach the drain pipe without twisting my fingers between the coils. Or should I leave the coils alone? Thanks again, Sabrina

You can, just be careful. Don't let the coil drop down and potentially break one of the freon lines. Devise a way to prop it up, so it just gives you enough room to get in there and do what you need to do.
