Ice will most likely form again.you have a defrost problem.most likely it is your defrost heater.their are a few things that control your defrost cycle.defrost timer,thermostat and defrost heater.most of your newer ref. will also have a control board on the back of ref. or under ref in a usually grey box.but check your heaters first.you will need to take the back panel off in freezer.you will see heater at the bottom of coils.if you have a set of meters you can check for continuity to heater.also your drain below heater sounds clogged.i usually steam out drain but you can use hot water.water should go down drainwhen unclogged.that will prevent the drawer from sticking.

How do I replace a broken ice full guide?


The ice maker is easy to remove once you get the drawer off the slides. There are two plastic clips located near the back of the drawer that attach it to the slides. Pop those out and lift the drawer out. Pull off the plastic ice maker cover to expose the mounting screws. Remove the two screws holding the assembly to the top of the freezer, then slide the ice maker forward about 1/2 inch. It will drop down a few inches, allowing you to unplug the wiring connector and remove it as a unit. The ice full guide is then easily removed.

Sub zero freezer drawer frozen shut


Subzero freezer: We had all our drawers stuck, including the ice drawer. We turned off the refrigerator, took all the drawers out and defrosted the rails with a hair dryer. The ice drawer was misaligned, so we reset the allen screws on the left to be the correct width. All better!

The freezer is not cooling and all items in the freezer have dethawed, The Fridge part is cool but not as cool. This started last night and 24 hours later everything defrosted.


hopefully you still got it plugged up to check a few things.... if so here we go...
1st is there any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer wall inside unit... if so then we know the compressor is still working and you got a defrost problem going on most likely one of these three parts /the heater has failed,the defrost thermostat has failed. or the defrost timer has failed... you can check the heater by gaining access to the back wall of freezer remove shelfs and the remove back panel of freezer there will be a heater down at bottom with a wire on each side make sure the unit is unplugged at this point and that you take a hair dryer and thaw ice test heater on each side with a meter checking for contuinity through heater to make sure no broke... the defrost thermostat is mounted to the coil in same area prior to thawing gain access to wires if there is ice around thermostat which is round and clips to coil has 2 wires again unit unplugged adn prior to thawing check for contuinity as if there is ice around it it should have closed... if both them are good you most likely have a bad defrost control/timer. if there is no ice on back panel is the fan in freezer section working when the door switch is closed listen ,is the fan in the back of unit working ,is the compressor running have you heard any clicking coming from back of unit if so that would indicate a bad compressor relay on will require to be replaces.... not much description in your post but hopefully one of these tips help you get a diagnoses. good luck

Exactly the same.


The hose that carries the water from the top coil to the evaporator pan is plugged with ice. You need to leave your unit unplugged for a long time so the ice in the drain hose can melt. If you restart it too soon the problem will not be solved.

Ice under freezer drawer


Hi, Check in the back rear of the freezer and se if you have ice built up. MOST cases the defrost drain gets plugged behind the rear freezer wall under the evaporator.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Whirlpool refrigerator w/ top freeezer


It has a plugged defrost drain. You may need to defrost for 24 hours with unit unplugged and doors open. UNPLUG FIRST!! f still leaks, you need to remove floor of freezer, then the back wall of freezer. Remove ice. At center rear under coils is the drain hole that is plugged up. Use hair dryer to melt ice. Pour hot water in this area to uncover drain. With hot water in area, you can put a 1/4 diam. hose or copper pipe in drain and blow into it while pressing down. It will slowly go through ice, clearing drain.

Freezer Drawer Stuck


Our 550 bottom freezer drawer froze shut earlier this week and the motor made an unusual sound, like it was working too hard. Two of us eventually were able to open the drawer to find that it had frozen shut due to a leak which filled the ice tray solid and then adhered to the actual door, freezing it shut. We emptied the fridge and freezer, turned the control dials down to 0, but neither the motor nor the light would go off. We finally killed the circuit breaker to get the appliance to shut down. It's cleaned and defrosted and we noticed that the gasket has torn in three places, two on the fridge door and one on the freezer door. The freezer door could be from our tugging, but the refrigerator door is normal wear and tear. We filled the tears with some kind of putty and when it is dry we will start everything up again. This is not the first problem of this nature we have experienced with our subzero 550, but it is the most dramatic. Each previous time we have called a repair man out and he has been unable to fix it.
