Frigidaire glrs264za ice in freezer

There is a huge chunk of ice in the bottom of my freezer. Looks like it's coming from the back of my freezer wall. I'm not quite sure what's back there and what I'm looking for, or if mine has the drain tube I keep seeing mentioned. Any help is greatly appreciated!!

The ice-maker supply line enters the back of the freezer near the top. There is a rubber piece that fills the ice tray, attached from the outside. If that is cracked you will have a leak. There is also a water line that runs through the refrigerator to the reservoir that supplies chilled water at the door. All of these lines should be checked for leaks that can drip into the freezer compartment.

yes remove the rear panel in the freezer where you see the drain hole. Clear the ice from the drain hole. It will take a while for the water to start to drain because the ice is deep in the insulation. A small tube is helpful to draw some hot water in and stick in in the drain hole and squirt the hot water down in the hole.

take all the bottom shelves and baskets out of the freezer. look at the back wall of the freezer. youll see a block of ice in a metal pan looking part at the bottom of the rear panel. there is a hole in the bottom of that pan. thats the defrost drain. its clogged. use a hair dryer to get all the ice out then use hot water to flush out the drain hole.

SOURCE: accumulation of water in bottom of fridge

You probably need a new door deal for the freezer. When you cet too much condensation in the freezer, it drains down the back of the refrigerator section during the defrost cycle. Check under the produce bins for a drain. If you don't have one, you're not alone. I used to have have to wipe mine out every other day until I finally replaced the seal.

Ice under the bottom draw in freezer. Melts some


Close, it is in the freezer.
It is your defrost drain. that ice was actually ice originally, just from your evaporator. the defrost heater comes on when the evap. gets frosty white, it melts, and then is supposed to go down your drain. if it is clogged, it will build up, and just freeze because it is around zero in there. my advice, take off the back wall of the freezer, look for the drain under the aluminum coils that is toward the back wall. get your moms hair dryer and go at it

My icemaker is making huge chunks of ice in bin


You will need to replace the termination thermostat. What sounds like is happening is. Every 8 to 10 hr. your freezer goes into defrost for a set period of time. There is a termination thermostat that senses the temp at you evaporator coil in you freezer. When you heaters come on they defrost the ice from your coil. once the termination thermostat senses the temp has gotten to a preset degree, it cuts the power to the heaters. This keeps the heaters from staying on the whole period and making your freezer warm. After the pre set time period the timer turns the compressor back on. What it sounds like is happening is the termination thermostat is not opening, cutting the heaters off. By not doing so, it's letting your freezer get above freezing, melting your ice some. When the timer advances into cooling again it freezes your ice together. I would say it's your water valve leaking but that would make large pieces of ice that the ice maker has trouble dumping and also sometimes a large chunk that does not look like cubs. That would also eventually freeze the inlet tube closed..

I have water leaking out the back of the freezer side of my side


Pull the fridge away from the wall and check where the water line enters the fridge for the ice maker. If there is a fitting there, make sure that it is tight or the clamp is secure. If it looks cracked or split in any way, remove it and replace it with new hose.

Hope this helps,

Jeff
