JC Penney Freezer leaking water

01 - JC Penney Freezer Defrost Sensor with Fuse
If the defrost drain is frozen, the water will overflow the drain trough and drip down to the bottom of the compartment. This water can eventually leak onto the floor. Check the defrost drain to determine if it is clogged or frozen. If the defrost drain is frozen, thaw the ice. In addition, flush the drain with hot water to ensure that it is clear of debris.

02 - JC Penney Freezer Drain Strap
The drain strap may have fallen off or deteriorated. Some freezers have a small copper or aluminum strap that attaches to the defrost heater and extends into the defrost drain. When the defrost heater turns on, heat is conducted through the drain strap to melt any ice that may have accumulated in the defrost drain. If the drain strap is defective, it will not be able to melt the ice, causing the defrost drain to frost over and condensation dripping off the evaporator to leak onto the floor. If y...our freezer doesnt have a drain strap, and your drain is freezing, one can usually be added.

05 - JC Penney Freezer Door Gasket
If a freezer is leaking water outside the appliance, it's possible the door gasket is damaged. A door gasket that does not form a proper seal to the freezer frame will allow warm humid air to enter the freezer. This can create condensation which can then leak out the gap between the gasket and frame onto the floor. You should inspect the door gasket for any tears or twists and replace the gasket if necessary.
