Ice build up on floor of freezer drawer starting under ice maker

I have noticed a build up of ice on the floor of the freezer drawer in our 4-year old LG French door refrigerator, starting under the ice maker. Any idea what might be causing this or how to fix it? I suspect the ice maker may be leaking water periodically, but it appears to be working normally.

    My LG french door freezer has the same problem. I have disconnected the ice maker and water to the frig but the ice build up continues. I have moved the frig away from the wall to help circulation and there is no food blocking the freezer ventilation system. LG says to turn the freezer temp to 0 and see if that helps (we had turned it to -3 ) and if that doesn't help, then next turn the frig off for 4 hours. I don't expect that to work either. I found a comment on line that it may have to do with the evaporative drain.

    tony572 here - we got a serviceman in about 3 weeks ago to take a look. He determined that the problem was not the icemaker, but a frozen defrost drain (the water in the defrost drain had somehow frozen up). After melting the ice in the frozen drain with boiling water which we supplied, the problem seems to have gone away. I am not sure what caused the water in the defrost drain to freeze in the first place (this is thr first time this has happened in 4 years or so) but that seems to be the problem.

    Does anyone know how to get to the "defrost drain" or "condensation drain" to clear it out. Do you go through the inside of the freezer, or get at it from the back of the appliance? If anyone has details they wouldn't mind sharing, that would be great. Thanks.

You will have to access to the drain from the inside, most of the time is water sludge that stuck the drain opening after years of operation.

Ice build-up on the bottom of the freezer drawer

Water on the freezer floor has only two sources, 1) ice maker overflow/leak, or 2) defrost drain plugged. For the first you can turn off the ice maker and shut off the supply water for a few days to see if the problem recurs. If this is the problem determine if the water fill valve leaks or the ice maker is the problem and replace the offender. For the second, thaw out and clear all the ice, paying special attention to the drain located under the freezer (cooling) coil. Then clear the blockage from the drain tube. BE CAREFUL AND DO NOT USE WIRE OR SHARP ITEMS as this can pierce a hole in the drain requiring replacement, not something you want to do or pay for. A turkey baster and hot water are useful tools to flush out the blockage allowing water to drain freely into the defrost drain pan under the refrigerator.

Ice under the bottom draw in freezer. Melts some

Close, it is in the freezer.
It is your defrost drain. that ice was actually ice originally, just from your evaporator. the defrost heater comes on when the evap. gets frosty white, it melts, and then is supposed to go down your drain. if it is clogged, it will build up, and just freeze because it is around zero in there. my advice, take off the back wall of the freezer, look for the drain under the aluminum coils that is toward the back wall. get your moms hair dryer and go at it
