There is ice build-up on the floor of the freezer. If I don't chip it out, it will leak onto the floor in front of the freezer. Any suggestions?

Ice build u p and leakage in freezer


you have a blocked drain in the freezer,when the machine goes into defrost the heater comes on and melts the frost off of the evaporator coil,the water melts and goes down the drain hose under the coil and leaks down to a drip pan near the compressor where it evaporates from the heat,your drain is blocked and the water is leaking onto the freezer floor and will drip out onto the floor,i use a steemer to blow out the drain line,shut down the machine or unplug it,melt out all the ice with hair dryer,depending on your model you might have to remove the back inside wall of the freezer to get at drain hole,you need something to push the **** out the drain hose,you can try a turkey baster or air from a compressor or a shop vac set it to blow,when you think it's clear pour a cup of hot water into the drain,if it drains down you're done if not keep hitting it with heat and air to push it through.

Freezer icing over at bottom and leaking onto floor


Hi, You will need to remove the rear panel in the freezer and then remove the ice build up in the drain pan. The drain hole will have ice down in it.Make sure all the ice is gone and then flush the drain hole out with hot water (a basting serenge works great)
This should take care of your water problem.
If I can assist you further, please let me know and please rate me response so that other as well as my self will know how I am doing.

Thanks

Ice build up on bottom of freezer. Water leaks out of freezer possibly from melting. Water leaks onto floor of kitchen.


Your problem is possibly one of two things. The ice maker is leaking or the defrost tray behind the rear panel inside freezer back wall is clogged with ice or something else. If you know its not the ice maker unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel to see if the drain is blocked there, Let me know, Sea Breeze

Smeg fride freezer leaking


HI Mark,
The evaporator drain is blocked causing the defrost water to pool, freeze and then leak onto your floor.
Clear out the freezer, then use a hammer to break up the ice on the floor. Now remove the rear panel. You'll see more ice build up. Don't use the hammer on it! (Too close to the coils for comfort) Use a hair dryer to warm up/melt the ice below the coils.
You'll see the drain hole now. Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into it with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog.

Ice at the bottom of the freezer


It sounds like the freezer has leaking door seals and air is getting in to the freezer compartment. Your temperatures are set about right. Regards
