SOURCE: Ice forming in bottom of freezer

Rita, your drain hole is frozen over and when your refer goes into defrost the water is running out into the cabinet instead of down the drain hole. Remove the evaporator cover and poor some boiling water in the evaporator drip pan. This should melt the ice and clear the drain hole....Catriver...post back.

SOURCE: Ice forming on bottom of freezer section

The freezer should have a drain hole for the defrost water to flow through. This will drain into a pan outside of the freezer cabinet. If this drain tube becomes blocked it will not allow the water to drain out and it will accumulate in the bottom of the freezer section. You will have to verify that the drain is clear through to the drain pan. this can be done carefully with a piece of stiff wire. There should also be some sort of a water trap on the drain tube to prevent air from entering the freezer compartment through the drain tube.

SOURCE: FF200EP Fridge Freezer - water

I had the same problem, the fridge would leak overnight (usually) I found with some more searching the answer..... try it at you own risk!
Here are 2 detailed answers depending on your circumstances/technical ability....Turn off fridge....
1. Defrost fridge...catch all the water
or
2. Work quickly....
Remove drawers, at the back of the fridge there is a panel with 5 phillips screws (note that there are long and short screws). Remove the screws and the panel. (if you chose the second option then this will be "frozen in place" so you will get crunching noise when you peel it away - so be careful when removing it). At the top of the panel is a connector that powers the fan, squeeze the 2 sides in to remove. This will allow the panel/ducting to be removed from the fridge. (If you chose option 2 you will now probably see a large lump of ice over the drain hole).
Remove ice or debris from drain hole, re-asssmble not forgetting to connect the fan again!!!) then repower the fridge following the instructions as you will get the alarms... the fridge cools and the warning lights dissapear.......24 hours on mine is OK!

SOURCE: Forming ice in the freezer vent going to bottom

It could also be your defrost heater. Look in side your fridge at the adjustment knob. It is in a box attached to the ceiling of your fridge. Look under this and you should see a plastic screw. Turn this screw until the motor cuts off. Leave it off for about 30 minutes. If motor turns back on then the defrost timer is working. The defrost heater is in the back panel of the freezer. The defrost heater looks like a long tube that runs under the freezer coils and half way up both sides. If after turning the screw on the defrost timer and the fridge doesn't turn back on then it is the defrost timer. The time is inside the box the adjustment knob is on.

Why does my daewoo fridge freezer works intermittently ?


You either have a faulty thermostat, a loose connection or most likely a build up of ice inside the freezer. I had the same problem. Almost replaced fridge. Took all the food out one day, took out the racks and disassembled bottom and rear and found a two foot log block of ice inside air return. Removed ice everything works perfectly.

Ice forming at bottom of Daewoo freezer. How do I fix this


Look on the back of the unit for a plastic hose coming out the bottom to a drain pan usually sat on top of the compressor. Bend a straw and push up inside. If it won;t go, there is a blockage, usually ice in the drain. Fully defrost the freezer and blow through the straw until clear.

A sheet of ice has formed on the bottom of the freezer. Why.


There is a drain port in the behind the freezer panel where all of the water drains when your evaporator coils defrost. It has gotten clogged with food, or ice. Thaw all of the ice and unplug the drain hole, and ice will stop forming on the bottom of your freezer.
