Sounds as if your defroster has quit on you. The defroster prevents the ice from building up inside of the unit. It is located in the space between the fridge and freezer. You need the model and serial number of the unit and go to the appliance supply house for the replacement part. Be careful when removing the interior of the fridge as not to crack the inner plastic covering. Also as with any type of electrical appliance be sure to disconnect the power before repairs are to be made. You will also need to shut the fridge down about 10 hrs or so before trying to do repairs as to let the ice melt. Good Luck

Ice forming at bottom of freezer


I had a problem with Ice forming in the bottom of my freezer on my whirlpool side by side freezer-refrigerator. Turn out to be a plugged drain in the bottom of the freezer. That drain goes into a tray under the whole unit. During Defrost, condensate drops from the contents of the freezer on to the bottom of the freezer and goes through a drain tube to a pan underneath. Should that drain tube become plug and the water is left standing in the bottom of the freezer, it will turn back to ice after the defrost cycle is over. Once the drain tube is clean out, the problem goes away.

Kenmore 52552100 Side by Side ice in bottom of freezer


I had the same problem. And after some research I went at it yesterday. I unplugged the refrigerator and removed the bottom two racks in the freezer. The tray at the bottom of the defrost assembly was caked with ice. I didn't know where the drain plug was. I started melting the ice using a hair dryer. I also carefully broke up the ice using a knife. After the ice was removed I could locate the drain hole. I used a copper wire shaped like an "L" and tried chipping away at it with no luck. I then poured a 1/3 of a cup of very hot water in the tray and let it sit. After a few minutes I used the hair drier again and soaked up the water with a paper towel. I added another 1/3 cup of hot water. I noticed the ice in the drain hole was beginning to melt and used the wire again. Finally, I got my compressed air gun and blew out the hole. I wanted to just blow the water out of there but it must have shot the ice out into the evaporator tray. I poured more hot water in the tray and it disappeared immediately into the evaporator tray (checked the tray and could see water). I then blew out the hole with compressed air and dried the area with the hair drier. Plugged in the refrigerator, replaced the baskets and was done. Whole thing took 30-45 minutes. No idea why it clogged up in the first place but if it happens again I should be able to cut 10 minutes off the time.

Sheet of ice forms in bottom of freezer


Frost free fidges are supposed to stay frost free because the automatically defrost regularly. When they do this they may drain water down to the bottom of your fridge. Look for a tray that catches this water underneath the unit. Make sure yo keep it emptied. If you live in a very warm climate you may be getting a lot of humidity inside. There may be a switch that you can change for lower moisture.

My Bosch frostfree fridge freezer keeps icing up!


My Bosch Frost Free Fridge Freezer did the same thing - Ice forming in the bottom of the freezer area after a few days.

It was caused by a blocked drain pipe - When the freezer does the de-frosting cycle, the melted ice drips into a tray and tehn runs into a dish on top of teh compressor, through a pipe.

If this pipe gets blocked, the de frosted ice overflows from the tray and overflows into the bottom of the freezer and then re-freezes !

To fix, pull the freezer away form the wall, locate the pipe that runs to the dish on top of the compressor and blow through it - This should clear it. Alternatively, from inside the freezer compartment, pull off the cover at the back, but the clips holding it on will probably break off, as mine did ! You can sort of push the cover back on and re-fit the food draws.

Water freezing on the tray section under the freezer drawer.


sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over
