Ice forming at bottom of freezer


I had a problem with Ice forming in the bottom of my freezer on my whirlpool side by side freezer-refrigerator. Turn out to be a plugged drain in the bottom of the freezer. That drain goes into a tray under the whole unit. During Defrost, condensate drops from the contents of the freezer on to the bottom of the freezer and goes through a drain tube to a pan underneath. Should that drain tube become plug and the water is left standing in the bottom of the freezer, it will turn back to ice after the defrost cycle is over. Once the drain tube is clean out, the problem goes away.

Hi I have a 1 year old Whirlpool french door refridgerator bottom freezer with ice maker. A couple of days ago I noticed a thick sheet of ice that formed on the bottom of the freezer. I cleared the ice...


Hello there,
When your refrigerator begins to have ice at the back, it is known as ice build up. There is no leakage anywhere, it is just that there is a component or the other that is being faulty inside the unit of the refrigerator. The defrost unit is where the problem is from.
The defrost process is done automatically and the process involves the defrost thermostat, the defrost heater and the defrost timer. Once one of them or more becomes faulty, ice will begin to form at the back of the refrigerator.
You will have to test the defrost timer, defrost heater and defrost thermostat in order for you to be able to tell which is faulty and need to be replaced.
You can go through these tips if you intend to fix this yourself.

I have a maytag bottom freezer refrigerator model#mbf1956keq


apparently its the way the maytag defrosts. I have had this issue since I bought it. FIrst of all, you dont have to go through the whole defrosting process with water on the floor and removing your freezer contents. Simply take a butter knife and from the front corner, slide it under the edge of the ice and the whole sheet can be slid out intact right under the freezer door. I think it had alot to dowith having the humidity switch on, because when it isn't like in the summer when the AC is running, the amount of ice is not that bad.

Water on the top shelf of the refrigerator


Your defrost drain is clogged and now the defrost drain trough has filled with ice causing the water from your defrost cycles to flow into the fresh food section. You will need to clear all ice form thr drain area and this is done thru the freezer wall and some models also have a removable bottom panel in the freezer that has to come out also to get to the drain. You can do this it will just take a little time. About an hour for a first timer with little experience. Good luck and hope this helps

Ice builds up in freezer bottom pan, not going down the drain tube. Is this an indicator of the defrost timer not working correctly, and if so where is the drfrost timer on a ETIFTTXKT02 model?


Defrost timer is working or there would not be water/ice in the bottom pan (as you describe it.). Check that the drain tube from the pan to the bottom evaproation tray under the refrigerator is clear of restriction.

Inch of water standing in the bottom of the fridge


The defrost drain hole in the freezer is frozen over causing the defrost water to enter the refrigerator through the air duct.
Turn the refrigerator off. Remove the floor panel and the rear panel from inside the freezer compartment.
Break up and remove the ice you see. Use a hair dryer to melt the ice in the drain trough in the rear of the freezer underneath the cooling coils.
You will see a small hole in the rear center of the drain trough. It must be completely defrosted so that water drains through it.
This will take quite some time to do.
You may want to do the above steps and then just leave the refrigerator OFF for several hours to let the drain hole melt by itself.

Water leaking from bottom left freezer/dispenser side


Take the metal back panel off the inside of the freezer, exposing the cooling coils. Below the coils, at the very bottom of the freezer compartment you will find a small drain hole. (Presently covered over with ice) Use hot (not boiling) water and a turkey baster to melt the ice and force hot water into the drain hole until the water runs out the drain hole (and into the defrost drain pan under the refrigerator) on it's own. This should be a Fix-Ya for your refrigerator.
