Ice builds up inside the freezer every few days at bottom

Ice builds up inside the freezer every few days at the bottom, and then floods my wife's new kitchen floor.
someone said it might be a clogged evaporator drain. How difficult is it to get to that part and where do I find it?
Do you agree with that assessment?

There are many reasons for this happening for example water leaking from a water supply line for the dispenser or ice maker, a crack in the defrost pan, water leaking inside and draining through the refrigerator cabinet, but most are cased by a defrost drain line blockage. Below is a link that may be helpful so try to take it all in and use the parts that most refer to your specific problem, Thanks Sea Breeze

Freezer keeps building up ice on the condenser i think, and after a few day sitting the bottom part of the freezer freezes and the rest dont


Hi,

I'm not sure what system you have but typically there is a defrost timer on the back of the fridge. Often you can barely detect where it is, as only the stem sticks out.
What worries me is the amount of moisture in your fridge. You did not indicate how long to make the build up, check your seals carefully with a dollar bill.

Hidden Ice build-up inside plastic bottom cover of freezer


Generally, icing is the result of too much water vapor inside the unit, blockage of the circulation channels and too much packing in of the box.  The water vapor is generally caused by: uncapped items in the fridge, opening the door too often, humid conditions, bad door seals.  There is of course, there is a possibility that the defrost cycle on the unit is not working.  About once a day, depending on the brand, you should notice that the fans and compressor don't run and you should hear a bit of creaking, sloshing or other strange noises as the ice melts.  If this is not happening, your defrost timer or the coil it heats could be bad.

Water "pouring" from freezer condenser


sounds like drain in freezer is clogged and has iced over

so when unit goes into defrost water leaks into freezer bottom and freezes

you can either shut off fridge for a day and let ice in drain melt
and hopefully clear line

or u can take back cover off freezer section pour hot water in drain pan and make sure drain hole is cleared and draining down to pan
