Sounds like the defrost condensate drain behind the rear panel inside the freezer is frozen over. You will need to unplug the refrigerator and remove the panel. Defrost with a hair dryer and pour warm water into the tray that collects the defrost condensate and takes it down to a pan below your refrigerator to be heated and put back into the air inside your home. If for some reason it is not ice blocking the opening you will need to use a wet and dry vacuum cleaner to try to dislodge whatever is blocking the flow. Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Bottom of feezer building up ice and leaking


This just happened to me. take the panel off inside of freezer and you will see the evaporator fan this could be the problem. test it before placing.Also there is a thermostat in there too. A little round device that will kick the fan on when the temp is around 34. Both parts together are about 90 bucks if you get them yourself online. About 170. through a dealer.

Ice at the bottom of the freezer


bottom of rezzer compartment is supposed to be frozen( depending on timeof cycle) i wouldnt point to a defrost problem unitil the ice build up is hindering refigeration, its quite possible that thte defrost drain has just frozen itself over, and needs to be cleared to allow defrost water to go into the drip pan under unit

Is there ice build up under the bottom basket in the freezer??

sounds like the defrost drain is frozen up. especially since your cleaning up once or twice a day. simply defrost the drain and flush the drain line with warm water. you will likely have to remove the freezer cover inside the freezer compartment to do this.

if there is no ice build up under the baskets then its likely there is a leak in the water line for your water dispenser line that runs in the door. if thats teh case you will most likely need a service company to fix it for you..
