Yes you have a frozen drain or defrost system issue depending on where your evaporator coils are located. If its a side-by-side then its probably a frozen drain. You can remove the back panel and use a turkey baster and hot water to clear the drain line. If its just like a frost build up then sounds like you have a defrost system issue.
Hope this helps _MJ_

Ice accumulation on the bottom of the freezer


Your drain line is clogged, that is located behind the white wall inside of the freezer. The water comes from defrost cycle, that happens every 8-12 hours. You need to defrost it and snake it.

Water is accumulating inside the bottom of the freezer.


Hi, The defrost drain behind the rear freezer panel is plugged. Remove the rear panel and clear the ice away from the drain. Then you will need to flush the drain hole with hot water to make sure it is open.
Some models require an after market drain heat kit.
Please get me your model # and I can look this up to let you know if you need that heat kit.

Thanks

It takes weeks for ice to dissipate in a freezer.
You may can adjust your cut off lights or wire cut off to cut off before it's so full.

Ice accumulation at bottom of freezer


Hi, Remove the rear inside panel of the freezer and locate the drain hole under the evaporator coils.
Use a hair dryer and melt the ice. Make sure and get the ice out of the drain hole as well.
After the ice is removed, be sure and flush the drain hole with hot water. A baisting surenge works great for the flush.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Water accumulating in top shelf of refrigerator


Get yourself a thermeter and see what the tempeature is in the freezer. It should be "0" degrees or colder. If it is hanging around 30 degrees +/- you may have a compressor or control problem. You may have a drain tube clogged that takes the water out of the freezer. I am not familar with your model but many freezers are similar.
