Very loud noise from the fridge, ice formed behind the freezer drawers. Up plugged till all ice melted, plugged back in and it was fine. Do I need to do more? will the noise come back?

your freezer drain is either frozen or clogged,remove stuff from bottom of freezer and you should be able to see the drainhole..if frozen use a hair dryer to melt,then to make sure it 's not clogged use a wire hanger to clear it out and you should be ok,let me know-mike

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.

you have a frozen defrost drain. in order to fix this you will need to remove all shelves and basket out of the freezer. then remove rear evap cover. one youve gained access to this area you will see at the bottom of the coil an aluminum pan that most likely wil be iced over. clear away this ice then try to flush out the drain line with warm water. sometimes its neccessary to force water into drain line with a large syringe or turkey baster. this should fix ya up.
good luck and thx for using fixya Peyton

That sound is usually your icemaker calling for water. you can turn off your icemaker by lifting the little arm on the icemaker. As the icemaker calls for water the valve will be activated and will hum. This sound is usually not very loud. If your valve is making that much noise you may consider replacing the valve. The part number for you water inlet valve is #2315533 The retail price is $60.18 . I do have these on hand and available to ship out today if you need one. Please just let me know. You may also consider replacing your filter if your refrigerator has one. Thanks and I hope this will fixYa

I have run into this before and found it very helpful to re-level the refrigerator. By leaning the fridge back toward the wall about an inch helped keep the water and ice in the tray. Remember to remove items that block air flow in the freezer. Remove the ice bin and clean it then start over with the fridge leaning back a little. Hope this helps.
