Hi, if freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model)

Take care

My freezer is on the bottom and it keeps building up frost. Any idea why? Just started about 2 weeks ago.

for frost to start appearing in a bottom freezer, indicates that the draw seal is not sealing properly or the draw is not closing fully
after 3 years it may need an adjustment of the rollers and slides to get the draw sealing better again
call in a service technician as it should be still under warranty

Most refrigerators have the evaporator in the freezer and use air flow to cool down the refrigerator compartment. Can you tell if the defrost cycle is working, IS there ice on the evaporator. Can you defrost it. Try taking it off the power freeze cycle and also power cool cycle. When you cleaned underneath did you find a pan that had water in it. sometimes the drain clogs up and the condensate just sits in the freezer and refreezes the water, this acts like a blanket and slows down the cooling in the refrigerator. see if you can look at see if the drain is clogged, this may be your problem. You can get back to me and i will see if i can help you. thank you. and a rating would be helpful. thank you. wally
