SOURCE: Ice build-up in freezer - Kenmore Model C978-66795-2

don't know this appliance but for guidence:
some appliances have the evaporator in a compartment at the top of the freezer and the drain comes out of the back and runs externally to the drip tray. there should be a grill in the compartment so just peer into it and see if there is ice build up.
wherabouts is the freezer ice forming?

SOURCE: remove panel

the freezer panel has 2 fan motors, one for the i/m area and the other for cooling. there is 1 screw in the center of the panel, remove it and then the panel will have to be wedged out. it may seem like it is tight but go ahead and pull on the panel and it will come out.
before you can do this, you will need to remove the drawer and rails so you can get into the panel easily.
p.s. you didnt say why you want to remove this panel???
by the way, these units have problems with the fan motors causing poor cooling in the refr section.

SOURCE: frost build up behind/inside back freezer panel

I have same problem, it usually happens after someone leaves door open too long or after 4-6 months. I usually place two frozen milk jugs full of water in the upper fridge and tape the upper fridge door closed at night before bed so the kids don't open and let the upper food get warm., Unplug the fridge and open the freezer and remove all drawers (place excess frozen food in freezer in garage) , leaving the freezer open with a towel in the bottom to catch the melting water from the back panels inside and the next morning wipe the fridge bottom clean and plug it back up and replace everything. I hate that I paid so much for this fridge and have to defrost a couple times a year. However found out too late to return back to the store. It seams like it should have a cycle that heats the back plate every so often to warm and evaporate the ice that collects, but I haven't heard or can't find anything on that.

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

How do i remove the rear freezer panel


Remove all the contents from the freezer. Next is remove the the shelves of the freezer by lifting the front of the shelf and then pulling the shelf out of the freezer. Remove screws on the left and right side of the curved panel, located on the bottom of the back panel. Remove the curved panel.
Lift the bottom of the air tower cover, located in the center of the freezer's back panel, straight back and pull the air tower cover down to remove it. Remove the screw from the left side of the evaporator fan opening and from the panel in the upper-left side of the freezer's back panel and pull the back panel toward you and out of the freezer.

Ice build up on floor of freezer. is it safe to remove or loosen the back panel?


Yes you have to remove the back panel. No Problem
The drain in the freezer behind back lower panel
needs opening. You can see it at the bottom of the back panel
underneath the evaporator coils. (The cold coils)
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
When the defrost melts the water it goes down the drain
If the drain is clogged with Ice or ? it overflows into the ref.
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
If this was helpful please rate me.

Water is leaking onto top shelves of unit


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today. Your drain line is most likley frozen. You need to remove the shelfs from the freezer and the bottom slide out panel. Remove the screws holding down the plastic bottom piece in the freezer then remove the back panel in the freezer. Remove any ice buildup you can. The drain is in the middle under the evaporator. DONT TOUCH the evaporator. Use boiling water and pour it in the back untill the drain runs free.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Loud humming noise (vibration) from freezer section when running. Amana refrigerator (freezer on bottom) model BC21VW


Remove the back panel and see if the fan is turning. You will need it in the running cycle with the door switch closed. The noise your hearing is probally the fan assembly AP4008960. Make sure it is mounted tight and the back panel is not rubbing or loose. If the fan is making noise with the panel removed replace.

Refrigerator not keeping temp.


There is normally a fan in the freezer (usually removing the back panel from inside the fridge will show it [sometimes you need to pull the bottom panel of the freezer off] The panels are normally secured with phillips head screws.). If it doesn't turn, it probably needs replacing. Make sure the coils are not iced over. [unplug while removing panels, then plug back in... the temp will have risen in the freezer so the fan should come on right away].

Make sure that the "vents" in the freezer (bottom of the freezer - in the front back or both) are not covered.

Some fridges have a separate control for fridge temp, make sure that was not moved, or try setting to a colder setting.

Amana BX22A2W - freezer works, fridge not cooling


Same problem here with an Amana refrigerator with the freezer on the bottom. I removed the back panels and vacuumed dust and cat hair out. The back panel in the freezer was frosted over with ice on the bottom. I removed the shelves and food and used a hairdryer to loosen the panel. The ice maker made it harder to remove the plastic panel so I pulled it back and saw the cooling fins frozen solid. I used the hairdryer to melt the ice and a shop vacuum to collect the water. It works like new again.
