Been ok but now making loud whiring buzzing noises & freez box is icing upon containers
Look inside the freezer on the interior walls is there any frost or ice buildup on the walls of the freezer? If yes this sounds like ice build up behind the walls where you cannot see it in the freezer can you disconnect refrigerator remove the frozen food and place a bucket of hot water in there for about an hour with the freezer door shut and some towels on the bottom of the freezer to collect excess water before it runs out on your floor. provide the model number of your refrigerator and contact me and I'll tell you what we need to get

Ice forming in the bottom of the freezer. eventually melting and ending with water running on the floor from both corners of freezer

Check the seal on the door and make sure it is "sound". Pay particular attention to the bottom or underside of the freezer door / drawer. Make sure nothing is preventing a seal between the fridge case and door. Misfigured, distorted or otherwise damaged seals can cause frost build up as you describe. Clear any objects / replace damaged seals found.

Good luck!

Freezer icing up

Experienced this problem with Evaporator coil icing up (coil is located inside back wall of the freezer compartment; the ice/frost was visibly blocking the series of louvers or slots along the bottom of the freezer back wall. I think the power outage caused partial melting of an already somewhat iced coil, but when the power was restored the water on the coil just froze solid. When these slots become obstructed the Refrigerator will not cool to its proper 36-40 deg.F temperature and the compressor motor runs frequently and the noise level is louder than usual. SOLUTION: fastest and safest way to Defrost this iced up coil is: (1) turn off 120V power / unplug refrigerator from the outlet; (2) remove all food to another refrigerator / freezer and take out ice cube tray & flip icemaker bail wire to its up (off) position - but leave top freezer basket in-place; (3) remove Bottom freezer basket (which should lift up and out; (4) move refrigerator away from wall - and carefully unscrew and remove white-painted, rectangular metal panel at bottom in the back....... you will see a white plastic water tray below a small fan with black plastic blades...... have a 3x5 cellulose sponge and bucket handy...... (5) open freezer door all the way and set a 21-inch box fan on the floor in the opening or area where the Bottom freezer basket was removed... put a single towel on floor under the box fan if there is significant frost on the bottom of the freezer compartment (there should not normally be any); (5) turn the fan to "Medium" speed with air flow pointing toward the freezer... you will be amazed at how much faster this works than pans of hot water or hair dryers (the latter is potentially damaging and dangerous); (6) with a flashlight you should soon see the water drip-drip-dripping from a spot at the center and bottom of the Evaporator coil - where it goes down a white tube and into the white plastic pan beneath the small fan you saw in Step #4; after awhile (maybe 20 minutes) check the white plastic tray in the back - which will be full of water (sponge it out)... continue defrosting with the 21-inch box fan... check the plastic tray again - and sponge out the excess water. A completely iced-up coil will probably fill the plastic tray three times. Eventually the water will stop dripping - which means the Evaporator coil is completely defrosted. There may be some water that gets onto the floor under the left side of the refrigerator which you will have to wipe up. Reattach the metal panel and reinstall the Bottom freezer basket and ice tray. This process takes long enough that you can clean the inside of the refrigerator while you're at it.

Constant build up of water at the bottom of the fridge - what can I do to solve the problem

Check if the pipe or hose that supply water for the ice maker is not leaking. Look in the back of the fridge at the bottom part to see if frost is building up on the pipe then melting and putting water on the floor. Build up of frost on the line indicates low on freon or something is wrong with the fridge. It will still get cold but the frost will melt and put water on the floor.

Removed everything from the freezes. Removed a false bottom from the freezer floor, 2 screws. There was an ice build up under this plastic bottom. I let the ice melt with the de-frost cycle (or frost free cycle). No more water dripping into the refrigerator compartment.

Leaking kenmore side byside Refridgerator . It seems to leakout the freezer door side. Ice builds up at the bottom or floor of the freezer.

If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model when ice is gone take back cover off find drain hole and clean

Freezer icing over at bottom and leaking onto floor

Hi, You will need to remove the rear panel in the freezer and then remove the ice build up in the drain pan. The drain hole will have ice down in it.Make sure all the ice is gone and then flush the drain hole out with hot water (a basting serenge works great)
This should take care of your water problem.
If I can assist you further, please let me know and please rate me response so that other as well as my self will know how I am doing.

Bottom of freezer icing with thick sheet of ice

you have a froen drain thats why it is allways getting ice on the floor. you need to remove as much as you can then remove the back of the freezer so you can clear the drain pan and clear the drain. its not hard to do just you will have a lot of water on the bottom and your floor maybe. once you remove the ice from the pan have some very hot water and pour it in the pan utill the drain is free and the water go's down into the drip pan. shut the unit off untill tour done and be carefull around the coils. once its clear put the back on and plug the fridge back in. you will now have no more ice build up. make sure there is no food back there that can block the drain either. its a god time to clean the freezer out
