The model is not mentioned but I think that the fridge is defrosting from the evaporator to leak the water out.
Set your thermostat to normal and see if the fridge is cutting off when the ice forms.
If not switch off fride fully for about 6 hours and start again . If cooling is good then check for auto defrost timer, the thermostat or poor lining of the gasket .. faulty gaskets.
If food is not cooling then check on gas pressure, pumping of comrpessor., if poor reading change gas or overhaul compressor.
Estimate and decide.

Freezer is not even keeping ice cream from melting..and the 2 slots at the top in the back by the top shelf?? Are filled with IVE


Do an old fashioned dethaw of your icemaker. Remove food in compartment, unplug or turn off freezer. Leave doors closed, and get a thick towel and a pot of boiling water. Place the towel under the pot, close the door, and let the heat from the pot warm up that frozen freezer vent. That will clear the ice so the fan can draw cold air out into the freezer

Frigidaire FRS26LF8CS3 Side by Side, Freezer ice/cream melting, lower bin food side freezing


(There is a defrost heater on the evaporator in that area.If
you have a VOM you could check it with the power plug pulled out of the wall socket)

if you access the area turn the defrost timer on (clockwise)it should get warm in that area and you shoud hear a popping sound

Freezer is not working. Ice maker is working. Started noticing the past 2 weeks that ice cream is melting. Refrigerator is working but not keeping things really cold. The unit is only 3 years old.


ice mker will soon quit as when ice cream is soft the tempt is rising . look for frost build up in back wall of freezer . if so the heaters have failed ( very common ) . they will have to be replaced . there is a new style that replaces mose G E heaters . and they are much better .. mm

Ice melting in ice maker


Remove the food from the lower shelves , so the inside rear lower freezer panel can be removed ( only 2 or 4 screws ) .
The # 4 thermistor or # 5 thermistor is bad . # 4 tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted and when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp and when to cycle off / on , due to temp setting .
