Question about Refrigerators
I have a confusing issue with my freezer. I have ice build up on the back wall of the freezer, and sometime pools of ice on the shelf as if the unit has defrosted and refrozen. However, products are not frozen, especially in the front edge or in the door. Any suggestions? I've tried changing the temperature, and checking the door is closed.
Ur evaporator fan either frozen and or burnt out listen and or if able to put a meter on to test--- if need to replace u will need to let defrost enough to rmove the rear panel---- unplug unit--- and unbolt fan disconnect wire connection and replace with a new one

this could either be a blocked drain from the freezer not allowing defrost water to escape or the defrost heater failing to turn on due to a faulty defrost heater or defrost timer not enabling the water to escape

Hi, I can help you. The drain is plugged in the freezer section. Could I get the model #?
Some models need an after market drain heat strip added.
Please let me know and I can get you through tis.

Your refrigerator has a defrost drain blockage behind the evaporator in your your freezer compartment. Some models like yours have leak in the turns as the water leaves the freezer. I recommend that you unplug and remove the cover to the evaporator and check the defrost condensate tray below the evaporator. A wet vacuum cleaner and poring a solution with clorox in the drain will help you clean locate the leak and where the blockage may be downline.. I do have the manual on yours and can help you solve this. Some times this is a factory defect and I can help you solve the freezing drain problem. Let me know, Sea Breeze

the defroster isn't close enough to the drain to be effective. remove the back wall of the inside of the freezer, remove the excess ice. clear out the ice from the drain using hot water and a turkey baster. there is a kit from whirlpool that uses a piece of metal and a screw around the defrost rod, but I found out that a piece of 14 gauge solid core wire with the insulation stripped off works great too. stick the stripped wire into the drain, 2 to 3 inches, and wrap the rest around the defrost rod.
