Question about Admiral 26 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator
This is an Admiral side by side
Check your Defrost heaters in your Freezer. I just replaced mine for that same reason.

Your drain is probably plugged so when the fridge goes on defrost the water has nowhere to go.After the defrost cycle when the frige starts to freeze again the water freezes up causing ice build up

this should not be happening as a heater in the freezer should eliminate this problem.first check the hose is completely clear,if it is when your fridge goes into defrost mode you should be able to feel warmth near this drain or hear the ice crackling and defrosting thence draining via the rear tube also try removing the offending ice in the drain with hot water

Your defrost drain tube is clogged up. Remove the ice and look for the top of a drain tube about 3/8-1/2" in diameter. Once the ice is gone, use a meat baster (turkey baster) full off hot water stuck in the top of the drain tube and blast hot water through to clean it out. Do this several times with about 4 cups of hot water so you don't over flow the drain pan and flood the floor

The hose going from the drain to the condensate pan may be deteriorating or full of mold. Try running some "CLR" or Limeaway through it. Simply blowing it out with compressed air might help. If it's blocked with corrosion (metal drain) you may have to cut it free and replace it with a rubber hose.
Other causes could be that the drain is "trapping" itself or, if it came equipped with a trap, the trap could be clogged.
