Hi.. this can be caused by a number of things, however, that packed ice on the wall leads me to think this is a frozen solenoid on the water intake..

The most difficult thing about the fix, is where to put the contents of your freezer for overnight.. check with your neighbours, or get a large cool box.

the fix is to simply defrost the freezer THOROUGHLY.. it cannot be rushed with a scraper as the ice is within a closed valve and possibly backing up the water pipe by an inch or so.. make sure that the ice bucket fill wire is up, so that it does not try and make ice when you let it thaw properly overnight, dry it thoroughly and then set the freezer temperature to it's warmest setting for a few hours, then a little cooler, and so on, until you get to the desired temperature.. then drop the ice gauge wire to trigger ice making.. check back in a few hours to see if any has been produced

When you return the food, please pre-sort it, into shopping bags, each bag representing a shelf so you can fill the freezer swiftly.. then the ice that's made won't melt slightly, and then refreeze, sticking it to the ice bucket.

Is your fan blowing in the freezer? Frost on the back wall of the freezer usually indicates a defrost problem... defrost themostate, heaters, take back panel off and check evap for frost build up and if your fan in working.

SOURCE: freezer no frost

This is probably due to the failure of defrost timer or the heating coil..Try this
1)The defrost timer is sometimes found behind the front grill of the refrigerator. It may also be found behind a cover plate inside the refrigerator or freezer, in the temperature control console, or behind the refrigerator near the compressor.

The timer is usually held in place with one or more screws. Remove the screws and gently pull the timer out far enough to disconnect the wiring connector.

Locate the timer switch and turn it clockwise until you hear it click. One click and the refrigerator shuts off = defrost mode, second click the compressor and fans come back on = run/cooling mode.
2)If this doesnt work then Test the heating element for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading somewhere between zero and infinity. Because of the number of different elements we cannot tell what your reading should be, but we can be certain of what it shouldn't be. If the reading is zero or infinity the heating element is definitely bad and should be replaced. Proper power ( careful!! ) to the heating element ( 110-120 volts AC ) and the defrost heater does not come on = bad defrost heater.

SOURCE: ice maker frosts over on the chute

This would indicate a problem with the ice chute door seal. Have it serviced. Air leakage would cause the frost-ice buildup.

How to defrost


If this is an automatic defrost or "no-frost" freezer and it has developed a lot of frost and ice, call a repairman. That should never happen.

But if it's a manual defrost model, follow this procedure.
1. Turn off the freezer. Then remove all the food and toss it into a picnic cooler to keep it frozen. (Some blue ice packs will help.)
2. Open the drain on the bottom of the freezer, and put the end of the hose from the drain (which most have) into a roasting pan to catch the water from the melted frost.
3. Leave the door open. If you have a small electric space heater, blow warm air into the freezer to speed up the melting process.
4. Don't scrape the ice -- you could puncture a cooling coil in some units, making the freezer useless.
5. In about 30 or 40 minutes (15 with the space heater) the ice will be melted.
6. Dry the interior with a towel, toss the food back in, turn the freezer on again, and you're done.

Refrigeartor not chilling, freezer not freezing


If you have built up ice inside the freezer walls, and the defrost assembly isn't functioning, this could be the problem.

Defrost the unit! Take all the food out of the freezer side, remove shelves; remove inside back panel. If there is a lot of ice build up there, then your defrost assembly is not working or your refrigerator is not a frost free unit. Defrost either by leaving the freezer door open over night or you can speed the process up with a hair dryer. Once the ice build up is dealt with, you can plug the refrigerator back in and see if it will now freeze the freezer and chill the refrigerator. If it does, and you have a defrost assembly you need to order it and have it on hand when the ice builds up again.

Freezer is not defrosting


1. Remove all of the food from inside the freezer and place it into the ice chest. Use more than one ice chest, if necessary. Cover the food with ice from a 10 lb. bag of ice. Alternatively, place all of the food from your freezer into the refrigerator compartment, packed tightly together.
2. Place one or two 10 lb. bags of ice into one or two large bowls inside the refrigerator compartment to keep the food chilled. Keep the door to the refrigerator tightly closed and avoid opening it during the freezer defrosting process.
3. Unplug the unit and leave the freezer door open.
4. Let the freezer defrost overnight or for at least eight hours.
5. Use the towels to wipe up the melted ice.
6. Plug in a hair dryer and direct it to the interior of the freezer to melt any remaining ice from the walls and door. Be sure to direct it into the vents of the freezer, too.
7. Wipe up any water from ice melted with the hair dryer from inside and around the freezer.
8. Plug the freezer back into the outlet, and return food still solidly frozen to the freezer compartment from the ice chest or refrigerator. Use any thawed foods within a day or two or discard.

Our freezer and fridge or not keeping cold enough


This can be caused by the drain hole below freezer coil being blocked by ice. You MUST remove all ice in drain under freezer coil. Use turkey baster to squirt hot water into hole and use hairdryer to defrost. Possible defrost thermostat is defective. Unit never goes into defrost, ice forms on coil and in floor or back of freezer. After defrosting may work OK for a week or two but gradually gets warmer because ice is blocking ports where cool air gets to refrig. May also have water in refrig box. Can also be caused by defective defrost timer.

Frost in the freezer


IS IT ICE OR FROST? IF IT IS ICE, THE DOOR MAY HAVE BEEN LEFT CRACKED OPEN.
IF IT IS FROST, IS THIS A FROST FREE FREEZER?
IF YES, IS THE FROST ON THE BACK WALL?
IF YES, THERE IS A DEFROST FAILURE AND YOU WILL NEED TO TROUBLESHOOT THE DEFROST CIRCUIT.
IF THE FROST IS ON THE FOOD OR AROUND THE DOOR OPENING, A SEAL LEAK HAS ALLOWED WARM MOIST AIR INTO THE FREEZER AND CREATED THE FROST. CHECK THE DOOR SEAL FOR A GAP WHEN CLOSED.
