    The bottom drawer has only a few bottles of water. Not tall enough to lodge drawer. The drawer will only pull out about a half inch.

    I have the same problem. I have almost nothing in the drawer. I can open the drawer just far enough to see that nothing is blocking it from opening on the forward edge. The freezer has been empty and turned off in the sun all afternoon and the top compartment has thawed and dried out already, so ice may not be the problem?

    I noticed the frost was building up, so I took all the contents of the 'freezer' drawer out. Since then I have not been able to open the drawer. Very annoying drawer. It has not kept food frozen in the drawer either.

    Bottom drawer will not open. There are no contents in the drawer and have totally dethawed the freezer - still will not open.

Can you supply more info? Was there food in there that could have frozen in a position to lock up the door slides?

Layer of water on bottom of freezer,causing problem opening bottom drawer, having to use hair dryer to thaw.

If it is a frostless your drain tube is plugged. The water cannot go through the whole to the drip pan so it flows over into the freezer. Unplug the freezer and leave the door open all day to thaw. Or take the back wall out of the freezer and unthaw the drain tube with hot water and a hair dryer.

Freezer malfunction

unfortunetly it sounds like your freezer has lost refrigerant. as the refrigerant level drops so does the capasity of the freezer. the unit is not worth repair. unless it is a comercial unit .In that case you will nead to phone a local repairman.

Bottom drawer hard to close

Check the drawer slides on each side for cracks or a screw that has come loose. The drawer should slide in a groove on each side firmly. Hope this helps. JT
