Defrost drain is freezing

it is a normal problem with all refr. there is a drain tube at the rear of the unit the has a "drain loop" it gets plugged after a few years. try and remove the tube from the clamp, and run water thru it to clear the blockage. you will also need to remove the ice from under the freezer coil after you clear the tube. after that the regular defrost cycle will take over and work properly.

It appears the timer is fried. The water on the floor could be that the drain pan is out of place. The water should be drain into it and then evaporating . Just slide it back in place. The timer is not that expensive and fairly easy to install. Basically, take it off and put te new one on the same way you took it off.

Sounds like you have a clogged drain or partial. Pour hot water down the drain underneath back panel; until it takes the water without running over.
Check temp in freezer. It probably is freezing the water in the drain.
Temp should be between 0 to 10 Degrees.

Hotpoint side-by-side freezer drain freezes

yes totally defrost unit and verify drain is not plugged, make sure drain is trapped. it may drain into a pan on top of compressor, where heat dissipated by compressor evaporates condensate. certain crosly model freezers made by w.c. wood co. have a problem with that.

Freezing drain tube

Sometimes what causes this is a obstruction in the drain line. It may be draining, but not fast enough. the water could still be backed up enough to freeze after the defrost cycle. I would clean the line out with compressed air, or flushing water down it. If there is no progress with this, then you can get a drain line defrost heater. they come in all sizes, voltage, and Watts. You should be able to wire it directly into the defrost circuit
