Empty everything into a few boxes, cover them with lots of blankets. If the unit is in an area that has a drain in the floor, then just hose it down with warm water. If it is a moveable unit, hand truck it out side and do the water thing out there.

DO NOT TRY TO PRY ICE OFF ANY TUBES OF ANY KIND. THEY ARE FAIRLY DELICATE AND DO NOT HANDLE BEING TWISTED WELL.

When your done, reload the unit and from now on, do not leave the door open so much, ice will build up much slower. I generally do mine every 3-4 years. I also keep a few one gallon jugs full of water near the freezer and when I take something about the same size out, I replace it with the number of gallon jugs needed to fill that vacancy.

What all that does it, it reduces the amount of MOIST AIR that can rush into the unit when it is opened, and the ice will accumulate much much slower, plus a side benefit is, if you have a power outage, your have a freezer full of product and frozen water. Great for parties. If you do have that power outage, cover the freezer with a ton of blankets and it will stay as hard as a rock for several days. DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR EXCEPT IN A EMERGENCY. PRESERVE YOUR SEALED AIR CHAMBER YOU HAVE CREATED INSIDE OF YOUR REFER/FREEZER.

kindly,

Jim

Water is accumulating inside the bottom of the freezer.


Hi, The defrost drain behind the rear freezer panel is plugged. Remove the rear panel and clear the ice away from the drain. Then you will need to flush the drain hole with hot water to make sure it is open.
Some models require an after market drain heat kit.
Please get me your model # and I can look this up to let you know if you need that heat kit.

Thanks

Water accumulating in top shelf of refrigerator


Get yourself a thermeter and see what the tempeature is in the freezer. It should be "0" degrees or colder. If it is hanging around 30 degrees +/- you may have a compressor or control problem. You may have a drain tube clogged that takes the water out of the freezer. I am not familar with your model but many freezers are similar.

I am accumulating ice inside my freezer


It needs to be defrosted. If ice builds up quickly again then start shopping for another freezer as the repair is not worth it. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

Kenmore upright freezer


reason is that the evaporator is blocked with ice and hence no air circulation.
either
switch off for 24 hours with doors open
or
remove back panel inside freezer and melt ice off with a hairdryer

This one sounds like the defrost timer is not working and you are not getting a defrost cycle every 6-8 hours (or when needed). Another issue could be that air (moisture) is getting in from a leaky door seal, etc. and causing the freeze up. If you have a sealed system problem where the cooling coils are not uniformly frosted up then the defrost thermostat will not "know" there is an ice condition and therefore not go into defrost mode (same issue if the defrost t-stat is bad). After you have ALL the ice out of the unit it would be a good idea to take the interior rear cover off so you can view the coils. Start the freezer back up and watch over the next 1/2 hour or so to see that the entire coil is frosting up uniformly. If it isn't you may have a plugged system, a leak causing low refrigerant, etc. If over time the coils look uniformly frosted up you may have a defective defrost heating element itself (no heat, no defrost sort of thing). The defrost elements can be checked with a multimeter for continuity if you know how to do that sort of thing. It's hard to know a person's ability by these forums or if they can tackle certain test procedures.
