There is a drain tube located under the panel of most freezers. If that clogs up, the auto defrost can't work. The freezer defrosts by evaporating all the moisture out of the compartment. So, check that first. Secondly, a leaky door seal can also cause that problem. You can order door seals online or on Amazon.
I assume that the water is on the bottom of the fridge compartment? It could be that the drain trough has blocked and every time the fridge does an auto defrost, water runs out onto the floor of the fridge rather than down the drain. Once the defrost finishes, the water will stay on the floor of the fridge. Cold air falls to the bottom so its possible to get a sheet of ice in the bottom of the fridge. Locate the drain trough in the back wall of the fridge. See if you can visually locate any blockages or carefully dribble warm water down the drain to clear it.
try to clean the drain of your unit maybe it is clog up declog it to avoid drip. u said that ther is a build up of ice this means auto defrost not activate try to chek the defrost heater or defrost timer if have the unit this. or try to allign the door gasket possible theres a gap entry of outside air cause of build up of ice. bec it is came from moisture of air out side or avoid to much door opening.goodluck.
gas is sealed for life....sounds like it is auto defrost mode.leave switched on. after a full manual defrost. for at least 24 hours to settle down keep door shut... then check. should reset itself.make sure all vents,drains are clean.
You need to defrost it and remove rear panel in freezer compartment.After you defrost it pour hot water in the hole in the center rear area of freezer to make sure it is draining good.After that take down model# from the inside of fridge on the side .You will need a defrost timer You can use the model number and and your local parts depot will order it acourding to the model.80% of the time the fridge is iced up that is what is causing it;Hope i helped:) Let me know if there are anymore thing you want to know before you try
