Question about Refrigerators
The door seal is leaking. The air that circulates thru the fridge is where the moisture is coming from. Since it has to run more often to keep it at the right temp, the ice forms on the back. Replace the seal and the ice will disappear.

SOURCE: Evaporator coils frosting up
the frosting of the back compartment of the freezer indicates that the ice builds up at the evaporator ( the coil that cools). the system is supposed to melt the ice after a particular time interval for a period of time in order to start another cycle. im not sure if that model uses the electronic timer which you can not manually adjust to see if it is heating up on the heating mode. you would have to check three things. one is the defrost heater itself if it has continuity. another is the thing that we called thermodisc . its a part of the heating circuit where it cuts the heating current after it senses that the temperature of the evaporator is way up the thaw temperature. it is normally connected in series with the defrost heater and it is attached to the latter part of the evaporator tube. lastly which as i have told you is the timer. if its a mechanical timer, then probably it is not going to the heating mode. another is the electronic timer which is very hard to trouble shoot. you have to really observe the refrigerator how long it is running and if the compressor is stopping and the heater working by looking at the back if water is draining after a few minutes the compressor stop. as i may add, as you have said it is winter there, a thermostat setting could be an issue. the heater could probably not cope up with the coldness of the ambient temperature in which i may suggest to put the thermostat setting to the lowest setting on the knob. i hoped i was able to help....drcool

SOURCE: JCD2389DES Water Leak Problem
Once I saw that the drain tube went up over the coil before draining into the evaporator pan I decided to buy a small piece of flexible plastic tubing and re-route the tube so the water could freely flow down hill. It's been over two months with no additional problems. I can assume that since the water drains freely it doesn't stay trapped in the elbow freeze and the cause the collector tray to ultimately overflow.

Do you know for certain that the automatic defrost cycle is running at all?
Depending on the model, it should be entering the defrost mode every 12 or 24 hours. If the defrost timer is not easy to see (because of the drawer construction), you should be able to catch it by checking the walls of the freezer at random to see if they are still 'ice' cold or more temperate.
You may definitely have a leak, no argument there, but the defrost cycle may have been masking it while it was still happening by sending the ice/water down to the pan.

Sound like it's going into showroom mode that the same problem we had, by unplugging it for awhile and then plugging it back in usually works if not this what we were told.
Sounds like you have bad thermistors ( # 4 and/or # 5 ) .To access these parts , you will have to remove the inside rear wall of the freezer . The # 4 thermistor , tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp , when to cycle off , associated with the fan speed also
