Tip & How-To about Kenmore Refrigerators
I have a 1970s vintage Sears/Kenmore Coldspot Frost Free fridge with freezer unit up top. Model No. C106 519660
Water was dripping into the fridge. The drain catchment for this is behind the light in the fridge compartment just below the freezer.
For this repair, there's no need to pull the power plug on your fridge! You will not be dealing with anything electrical. Unless you smash a light pulling the shield.
Take out as much of the fridge content necessary to access the drain.
Remove the light shield by pulling the bottom towards you and lifting up.
Remove the two phillips head screws holding the catch basin.
Pull the unit towards you, it has an attached plastic tube.
Clean out the ice and or crud in the tray and tube.
Replace tray, screws and light cover.
I spent Waaay to much time looking at YouTube videos of incorrect models and being misled into lots of extra work. Alas I had no time left for a photo.
