Hi, It sounds like the defrost drain is plugged. UNPLUG the freezer. Remove the rear panel and you will be able to find the drain hole and remove the ice. Once you get the iceout of the drain. try and fluxh it with hot water (A baisting serigne works great). Sometines they plug up with duse from underneath. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

My freezer is constantly freezing up with ice in the bottom and it is impossible to use the basket and/or put any thing in the bottom as it always is full of ice, even shortly after defrosting.


It is probably just a clogged drain plug in the bottom. Try using a Shark steam cleaner to melt the ice in the bottom and make sure to melt the ice in the drain plug as well. Have lots of towels handy.

Icing up


I've just had a similar problem. I fixed it by removing the large panel on the back of the inside of the freezer. I found a large build up of ice at the bottom of the freezer which seems to have developed because the drain hole at the bottom of the freezer was blocked. I defrosted the ice, cleared the drain and now the freezer is working fine.

Freezer model EV171NYMS04 we have ice build up on


There is a drain the back of the freezer that is frozen. Your trickle of water comes from the ice that melts off of the refrigeration coils during the defrost cycle. You need to turn off the freezer, then remove the rear cover from the back wall to expose the coils. With a hair dryer, melt all of the ice. You will find a drain under the coils. Melts all of the ice in this drain so water can get out of the freezer. When this drain is clear, you can put everything back together, and your freezer should work normally.

Frost free freezer with ice in the bottom and water dipping off bottom door hinge


Frost Free Freezer have an automatic defrost, which is essentially a heating element which melts any ice. If your door seals are in poor condition or something is preventing the door from sealing the ambient air may be melting the ice more than the drain can accommodate. Check the drain in the bottom of the freezer. Humidity can also cause more water to accumulate, especially if the door seals are not sealing.

ICE BUILDUP ON BOTTOM OF FREEZER, DRAIN HOLE FROZEN


There is normally a small filiament of metal which is attached to the defrost element and conducts heat down the drainpipe preventing ice build up. You can pour some boiling water onto this area and even wriggle a piece of plastic tubing down the drain pipe to dislodge any blockage. For future prevention, you can attach a piece of copper wire around the defrost element (in the absence of the original filiament) and extend it down the drainpiple

My Bosch frostfree fridge freezer keeps icing up!


My Bosch Frost Free Fridge Freezer did the same thing - Ice forming in the bottom of the freezer area after a few days.

It was caused by a blocked drain pipe - When the freezer does the de-frosting cycle, the melted ice drips into a tray and tehn runs into a dish on top of teh compressor, through a pipe.

If this pipe gets blocked, the de frosted ice overflows from the tray and overflows into the bottom of the freezer and then re-freezes !

To fix, pull the freezer away form the wall, locate the pipe that runs to the dish on top of the compressor and blow through it - This should clear it. Alternatively, from inside the freezer compartment, pull off the cover at the back, but the clips holding it on will probably break off, as mine did ! You can sort of push the cover back on and re-fit the food draws.
