Ice building up on top of drawer

We kept having puddles on the floor and i realized the door was not shutting properly because ice was building up on the top of the drawer on the white part in front of the seal. now, every morning i have to chip off a large chunk of ice. i can't figure out where the ice is coming from?

Try to defrost the unit until all the ice disappear in the evaporator coil.

Water is sitting on top of freezer compartment and leaking out on floor


Make sure that your drawer is aligned properly and that there is no ice build up anywhere. Mine built up some ice in the very back and side somehow, and caused the door not to close tightly which lead to a similar problem. Removing the ice build up cured it.

How to defrost freezer in kitchen Aid bottom drawer freezer


My kitchen aid bottom drawer freezer kept melting and freezing to block the drain and then water would leak out all over the floor. I did the WHOLE fridge/freezer defrosting process once, when i really just needed to do the bottom.

I have had issues with other Kitchen Aid (NEW BTW) appliances so I've talked to many repair people. One guy who came out to fix something else, told me that the freezer is really a pain to get to close completely. SO, when you don't close it all the way (Extra push) it will melt and then re freeze when it is closed properly. He suggested I take everything out, leave it open and use a hair dryer on the ice until it melts. Then use a wire hanger to unplug the drain to make sure its draining properly.

It works! You really have to make sure the drawer is shut ALL the way. I have a 2 yr old who is constantly opening it up...this is my issue! The seal is not that great and you have to really push it closed to prevent the ice build up issue.

Hope that helps!

I have a Jenn-Air refrigerator, Model JCD2389DE, and in the last two weeks we have noticed water puddling on the floor in front of the "freezer side" door. We thought maybe the water dispenser...


Mine did this a few years ago. I had to call service out to replace the system board. I guess it's a common problem. Something on the board fails and the defrost operation does not work properly, resulting in rapid meltdown of ice build-up and puddles on the floor.

Ice is forming around the ice maker where the ice dispenses through the opening in the door. I have taken out the ice drawer and washed it so that there is no more ice. I have also eliminated the ice...


Check and make sure that the flap that lets the ice out is shutting properly. When warm air enters the freezer door, it condensates then water freezes forming your ice. If this is your problem, they make a kit that replaces it. Good luck...
