Re: Freezing water line
Yes this freezer is built by woods corp. They had a myriad of drain icing problems. There is a kit to resolve this although sometimes it doesnt always work make sure that the plastic liner in the drain trough isnt cracked or it will let water in the liner, icing the drain. Seal any cracks with epoxy. Try running a piece of 14 guage copper wire strand (no insulation) from def heater and extend into drain hole. This will help it drain. All this is axcessed though back cover in freezer.

Just had this issue. Freezer is packed usually & suspected airflow. Emptied bottom 2 shelves & vent strip was solid frost. Bottom 2 shelves were filled w/ solid roasts & other solid large items. Used blowdryer & currently waiting to see if it begins freezing top shelf.
Check your drain hose that leads to evaporator pan. The hose should be in the pan. If it is in pan, then check to see if all door gaskets are tight and no leaks or gaps. This likely is the problem assuming you don't have a leak in the water line leading to ice maker. Try these things first and then we wll move to the next possible solutions.
The defrost drain outlet is stopped up and freezing over. Remove the bottom basket. Turn the freezer off. Look in the center of the freezer just below the cooling coils in the bottom of the freezer. You will see a water drain trough. It will be full of ice. Use a hair dryer to thaw the ice and remove it. The drain will become exposed. It must be thawed also,so that you can pour water through it and the water goes all the way to the drain pan underneath.
Cold weather will not cause problem. The refrigerant stays at gaseous state well below freezing temperature. If i am not mistaken R134 boils at -27 degrees F. below that it would turn liquid but even then it still will not harm the system. Make sure there is no water in the line going to the ice maker and water dispenser because water can freeze and bust the water line.
Hello, get a short piece of electrical wire and strip the insulation off. put a bend in one end and then hang it over the heater directly above the drain making sure the wire runs into the drain about an inch. the heat from the heater will make sure the drain stays clear. Hope this helps. Mike
Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the Freezer is because the water has been leaking into the freezer instead of running into the drain hole...If you need any further assistance please feel free to comment again. good luck! P.s Please don't forget to rate my solution thanks! Mike.
some freezers will not freeze in the freezer department if you are low on freon. the motor cannot produce enough freon to keep your freezer frozen when it is to low, however, you might have the temperature up to high where it has locked up the motor and is sending out all that water underneath. i would check your pan under your refrigerator to see if it needs to be dumped and then replace it back.
