In our case (viking model VCBB363) we found drain hole frozen and so the defrosted water not draining. Poured small quantities of boiled water into it, blotting away the thawed water till hole was cleared. Problem solved. Ofcourse you have to open the panel, after carefully disconnecting icemaker connections and thermistor connections and open screws. Hope this answers your question.

SOURCE: Build up of ice on bottom of LG fridge freezer

Is it supposed to be self defrost? If so then either underneath the freezer needs to be cleaned. coils if dirty will cause freezer not to work well. I that doesn't help you might have a freon leak which would make it under charged and would ice up like that.

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.


  • If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf.


  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, we recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

    The adjusta cube ice maker has an on/off switch. To stop the ice from overfilling and being knocked off when you open the freezer door turn the ice maker off and then back on as needed.

    You may have an issue with the temperature control assembly. Check the temperature settings (ideally at "one-half way" for both fresh food and freezer compartments).

    Contact an appliance service company.

    Why is bottom drawer of refrigerator freezing shut


    Hi,

    You have a clogged drain in the freezer from the defrost system. You will need to clear out all the ice, remove the rear wall and clear the drain under the evaporator as well. Failure to remove all the ice from the drain system will cause this issue to return. Good Luck

    Ice maker filling with water but not freezing into cubes.


    Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

    The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

    Water drains internally at back of freezer drawer


    Check the drain.

    Take the bottom drawer out of the freezer and look in the very back for a drain hole. It may be covered with ice. A hair dryer will melt the ice so you can unclog the drain.
