Hi, You need to get to the defrost drain. Remove the ice (do not use a sharp object)
Once you can get to the rear freezer panel, remove the screws and take the rear panel off. Now you should see the drain pan. Remove the ice (Hair dryer works good) and locate the drain hole. Remove the ice in the drain hole and flush hot water through it. You might need to push a wire through it or you can flush water through it with a baisting seringe. I hope this helps. If I can help further, please let me know.

Thanks
Vic

Water collecting under the freezer drawer, then freezing


We just had a similar problem with our Maytag side-by-side in the bottom of the freezer. Just as you described...sort of a glacier on the floor of the freezer that slowly melts toward the door. After several attempts to remove the ice, only to have it form again, my husband spoke with a helpful sales person in an appliance center. He said there's a drainage plug/line on the back that's supposed to funnel condensation to the evaporation tray underneath. It gets clogged and frozen. Sure enough...my husband pulled out the freezer, opened the visible line and it was all frozen and full of gunk. He had to use a hair dryer to thaw it out, then flushed it. It was amazing how much stuff came out of there. We've had no more problem since.

Make sure the unit is running at proper temperatures. If the freezer side is not cold enough the unit will not work properly.

Freezer side not freezing


Turn off the refrigerator.Remove the freezer shelves/bins and rear panel.
Take a hair dyer and thaw the ice completely. The defrost heater will be across the bottom of the freezer coil. The defrost thermostat will be attached to a refrigerant coil at the top of the freezer coil.It is about the size of a quarter and 1/2 inch thick.There will be wires from top to bottom on the sides of the coil.

Water puddling in bottom of freezer and freezing


the drain in the back of the freezer is probably full of ice. you need to pull out panel and use heat from a blow dryer to unplug the drain. then take a small gauge copper wire long enough to extend into the drain a couple of inches and loop it around the black heating element then when it goes yhrough defrost it should keep this from reaccuring

Water Freezing in bottom of Freezer and dripping out front of freezer door


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

My kenmore refrigerator side by side


Sounds like it has a defrost problem.  Check for thick frost buildup on the back bottom panel in the freezer first and let me know what you find so I can steer you in the right direction.  Also, give me the entire model # from the sticker inside fridge.
