Ice buildup bottom of freezer

I have a kenmore elite trio refrigerator Model 75524 (made by LG). Everything works fine except I get water build up which turns to ice in bottom of bottom freezer. I thought it was caused by water to ice maker or water dispenser on outside of door, but I turned all water to refrigerator OFF three weeks ago and still have the ice build-up problem. Any suggestions of what is causing this problem. Freezer temperature (and refrigerator) is OK.

SOURCE: refrigerator condensation

I have a Kenmore Coldspot Model 70262990. When I get wet shelves (water, not just condensation), I was able to trace my source to the cold air vent from the freezer. In my case, the water melts from the evaporator and collects in the rear lower section of the freezer. It is "supposed" to go down the drain tube. However I had the drain hole freeze over. Then additional water from the defrost cycle would accumulate in the freezer floor (under the plastic floor) and eventually find its way down the cold air vent between the freezer and refrigerator section. You'll need to unplug the unit, take the plastic floor out of the freezer, remove the evaporator panel to access the defrost drain, melt the frozen water (hair drier works nice), and remove all the water (towel/sponge & bucket). Make sure the drain is not frozen and not blocked. Then put it back together and plug it in.

Does anyone know how to stop the drain tube from freezing over?

Good luck.

If it is ice holding the door closed, you might use a hair dryer and a putty knife. Heat the blade of the putty knife with the dryer and work your way around the seal. If that doesn't work, then you probably have an ice buildup on the rails and will have to defrost the unit - Hope the freezer isn't full of food! You can hurry the defrost up some by using the hair dryer blowing down the fan exhaust hole.

When you finally get everything open, you should check the condition of the door seals, make sure the evaporator fan is operating (if circulated the cold air up and also remose the humidity from the freezer).

I guess you are talking fahrenheit temperature?
This is ok for the freezer.
The problem could be;
\ ducting blocked restricting air flow
\ evaporator fan not working
\ ice build up on the evaporator blocking air flow

You will need to get a technician to look at this problem for you

Water leaking into freezer


It may be the defrost thermostat. This thermostat turns on a heater in the freezer a couple of times a day and melts the ice in the freezer which should go into a tube that leads to a pan underneath the refrigerator, where it sits and evaporates from the heat of the compressor. It could also be the timer which tells the refrigeator to turn off a couple of times a day and tells the defrost thermostat to turn on.
