    Is this the drain for the ice maker or the freezer itself. Can I get a model number and name so I know what we are working with?

The drain keeps stopping up


Since there is no description of what type of freezer, I will talk generic. Most freezers have some sort of drain heater. Commercial walk-ins use them. 2 types: an insertion type that go inside the drain and another type that is wrapped around the outside of the drain and then wrapped with a foam type insulation call armaflex. hope this helps some.

Drain keeps freezing


The problem may be the freezer drain heater has failed, locate the drain inside of the freezer compartment and check to see if it is warm, if not you may need to replace the heater.

Drain keep freezing up at entry point to the drain tube causing water to freeze from the drain top down to the bottom of the freezer. ( frozen waterfall!) Could the defrost heater be malfunctioning? i.e....


Not sure of your model number and manufacturer, but in some freezer there is a seperate drain heater that should stay on for the complete defrost time. (the defrost heater will shut off when the evap coil reaches a certain temp, and the rest of the defrost time only the drain heater is energized.) That would be the very first place that I would start. Hope this helps

Very thick ice collects in bottom of freezer


the drain pipe you cleaned out has a p-trap that holds water. after awhile this trap will build up sludge and possibly freeze up. i recomend defrosting the drain pan again and try some way to forcfully flush hot water thru the drain. I use a turkey baster filled with water to do this. if the drain continues to freeze you may need to install a heat trap to keep drain from freezing.
a heat trap is just a piece of 10-12 guage solid copper wire with about 3 inches in the drain and the other end wrapped around the defrost heater which is the BLACK rod attached to the bottom of the evaporator coil in the freezer compartment. if you need any further assistance just let me know Peyton
