Question about Gladiator Freezerator Top Freezer Refrigerator
I have a Gladiator Freezer and I just started having a ice build up issue in the freezer section. I noticed in the top back part of the freezer it looks like it is dripping water, any suggestions to keep from ice building up under the lower basket. I am not sure why this is dripping water..is it due to the hot temperatures outside?

the deforsst motor or fan is most likely froze up let your frezzer fridge defrost for ATLEAST 24 hours which i know is a pain being that u will need to open the doors and turn it off for the whole time but it might solve your problem .. it is very common.

The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on
the lower back of the freezer.
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help. Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing.

If the coils are also icing up you have an auto defrost problem.

I have had water/ice down the back of a Gladiator as well. I just emptied it, disassembled the back wall of the upper portion of the unit. Just a few screws, and one has to disconnect a wire harness, and then after removing styrofoam and yet another panel, I was able to locate the drain hole. It was frozen solid. As I have hot water in the garage, I sprayed some in the drain hole area and then in the lower portion to get rid of some of the ice. After alternating several times (and removing the lower panel on the back of the unit), I was able to see a free flow of hot water from the drain tube at the lower back of the fridge. I have towel dried everything and have a fan on it now so that it is very dry before starting back up. I am guessing that the drain tube starts to freeze in the winter months (I am in Wisconsin), and then just has no way to thaw as it is sandwiched in the back wall of the unit. This winter I may try some extra insulation. Good Luck!

Just check and make shore the door seals are completely sealing. If air is been sucked into fridge it shall create water, same as freezer frost is created by air been sucked in.. Oh thats as long as the freezer is working -18deg.. Cheers
