Ice forming on bottom of freezer

I recently noticed water near the freezer door and found ice had formed on the bottom of the freezer. After I had cleaned it out, the ice returned in a couple of days and it appears water may be leaking into the freezer from on of the vents. Any ideas what may be the problem?

    Same exact problem. Solution to the person with the initial problem did not work. No gap in seal. Water seems to be coming from freezer vent inside and continuously builds up the ice on the bottom of the freezer until the water does not have anywhere to go then starts to leak out/

Freezer drain is frozen over, defrost water has nowhere to go. Need to pull back wall in freezer and clear drain, put some towels down and pour hot water in the back pan until the drain is cleared.

More then likely you have a clogged drain. This is a pain to get to, like most bottom freezer models. You will have to remove everything out of the freezer, remove the door and racks to access the rear freezer panel. Once you get there remove it. You will probably see solid ice forming below the evaporator coil. This is ice from the unit going into a defrost cycle like it should. That is not a problem. The problem is when the ice melts and turns to water it is suppose to drain threw a hole located right below the evaporator in the center. If you have a sheet of ice formed you will need to defrost it to get to the drain hole. You can use hot water. In the industry we de-ice the drain with hot water and then blow it out with a CO2 tank(compressed air tank). This is not my favorite job because it is messy and sometimes long. That ice does not melt fast. Any questions for me go to refrigerator repair and email me anytime.

Ice in freezer bottom


2 things:-1)Freezer door does not close completely, leving a gap allowing outside air to come in and te humidity causes water to freeze at the bottom of the freezer. This would explainwhy is forming over 2 days.
2)If your fidge has a ice maker in the freezer and a cold water dispemser, the both these compartments water flow for the ice &for dispenser are controlled by a solenoid valve, which in turn uses a sensor to detect the quantity of water in the ice maker trays and switces off the wster supply appropriately. If the sensor in the icemaker fails to detect the right quantity, overflows very slowly so as to appear to be noticeable..............sdeep

Water on floor under unit & ice bottom of freezer


By going online, saw several posts re this problem. In short, the water drain was clogged and there was also a problem with the defrost timer. Service man blew out the drain line with compressed air and installed a new timer. Voila! Problem fixed. Interestingly, the serviceman found a wad of what looked like putty, but was sticky like gum in the drain area. He said he had never encountered anything similar.

Ice forming at bottom of freezer


You are very bad. Of course the drain does something. Pour hot water over the ice. Use a sponge to pick up the water when it is not hot and do it again until the drain is clear. I use a Mr. Coffee as a quick source of very hot water.

Water leaking and ice in bottom shelf of freezer


Chances are you have a bad seal around the door if it's leaking from the inside which causes the ice to form as well, or if it's leaking from under the freezer you lave a bad heating element that evaporates the water collected in the pan under the freezer or you have a clogged hose that goes to the pan under the freezer which also causes the ice to form because the water has no place to go. Defrost and try to find a way to blow out the hose that goes from your freezer to the pan under the freezer and that should take care of your problem.

GE Monogram refrigerator/freezer problem/ice dam in ice maker


I have had the same problem with ice forming. I found the problem is from the ice maker. The water fill tube delivers water to a plastic piece that acts like a funnel. The water goes through this plastic piece into the ice maker. Ice forms in the plastic funnel piece causing the water to overflow into the ice bin and freezer.

I replaced my "entire" ice cube maker (tube,hoses,water pump, ice maker) and it still pooled water at the bottom. I removed the back panel in the freezer and noticed the ciols go through a defrost cycle and water forms in tray under coils. I removed the lower panel on rear of fridge -and found a drain hose near the water solenoid/pump. I blew compressed air into the hose and hopefully unblocked it so it can drain into the pan not the freezer.

Ice Sheet on floor of freezer


Check nothing is holding the door ajar, and that the door seals are closing properly all the way round. The abnormal thing about abnormal ice buildup isn't the fact that it's frozen - it's the fact that the water is getting in. The only way water is going to get in without you noticing it is in the form of moist air - and the biggest, most regularly disturbed way in for moist air is the door and its seal. A.
