Assuming that this is a self-defrosting freezer (which almost all are today), the defrosting coil or the timer may be bad. The defrosting coil actually warms up the freezer slightly every X hours. This thaws the ice that starts to form in the freezer. The vapor is then evaporated and exists out through a drip tube to the bottom of the freezer/fridge into a pan. The pan usually has the compressor fan blowing over it to evaporate the contents.

Water freezing on floor of freezer and leaking on to floor in front of freezer?


I have narrowed my similar problem (with a KitchenAid) down to a leak in the ice maker refill line. To test if this is your problem also, scrape the ice out, then turn off your ice maker (raise the lever as if it is full) and see if ice no longer forms down at the bottom over the next few days.

Ice Maker leaks water inside the freezer


I see you said you looked and the water valve is off but the only that I know of this happening is a defective water control valve. Like a dripping faucet that when off slowly drips until the ice forms and then one the ice maker dumps ice and tries to refill the water goes in every direction. Unplug water valve to confirm what I am saying, Tell me if it continues to leak. Sea Breeze

Admiral HMG 62163 water leaking internally & freezing in lower basket


good attempt, its actually a clogged drain thats backing up and your drain water is not able to leave refrig so it falls to bottom of freezer floor and eventually out the door. romve the items from the freezer and take the lower back wall off form inside, directly under the evaporator under all that ice there is a drain hole, youll need to clear that hole of iec( pouring boiling water down until you get a free flow of water then you can reassemble uint problem solved

Frigidaire, ice on floor of freexer


check to see if the defrost drain is not frozrn over or stopped up
this is the only way that water can get into the freezer
frost could and melt but dont think that i would check the drain at the bottom of the rear freezer panel if you see ice it is stopped up for sure
if all is clear there go to the ice maker, have had some that are overfilling and runnig over the ice maker into the bottom of the freezer

Leaking water


In back of the refrigerator behind a removable panel you will find a hose going into the drain pan under the refrigerator. Check and make sure there is no obstruction in the hose which would back up water into the freezer. After the drain hose is cleared the freezer should be defrosted and ice cleared from the drain area in the back. You can direct some hot water with some bleach in it through the drain to insure it flows into the pan.
