The Kenmore Company manufactures a variety of Side-By-Side Refrigerators that vary in size and functions. Most are Energy Star rated, and many of the refrigerators feature a water and ice dispenser, lipped shelves to prevent spills and humidity-controlled vegetable and fruit drawers. Almost all refrigerators produce moisture as part of normal operation, and that can increase during times of high humidity or if the refrigerator is in the process of being defrosted. Emptying the water from the drain pan on a Kenmore Side-By-Side Refrigerator is a fairly simple process.
Things You'll Need
- Power supply
- Tools, if necessary

Gently pull the drain pan out of the refrigerator and empty into a sink or large bucket.
Rinse the drain pan and wash with water and a few drops of dishwashing liquid if excessively dirty. Rinse the drain pan well and put it back into the refrigerator.
Replace the back access panel and return the refrigerator to its original position.
