Why is my ice maker causing blocks of ice at the bottom of ice bucket ,also on freezer baskets ?

Sounds like there is a leak in the water fill line to the ice maker or the timer in the ice maker is defective causing the fill cycle to overflow the cube tray and then freeze into blocks in the freezer.

Deepfreeze not working after defrosting

I think the problem happened during defrosting. i will tell the important steps that should be done while defrosting. Check whether you done the same steps or not.. If you done the wrong steps kindly contact the Shop where you buyed and tell them to replace with your guaranty(if available).
Here are the steps. Shut off the power to or unplug your freezer. It can't defrost if it's still running. Find the drain hole near the bottom of the freezer and put a plate or towel underneath it to prevent water from getting on the floor. Open the freezer door and remove all the food. Remove any baskets or other removable items from the freezer as well.Take the spatula and scrape away as much ice as you can from the walls of the freezer. This is cold work; I recommend gloves if you have any. After you scrape away as much as you can, use the dust pan and bowl and take out as much of the ice that has accumulated on the bottom of the freezer as possible. Replace the baskets or shelves in the freezer and shut the door. Turn the freezer back on. Put the food back in the freezer in an orderly manner where things can be found when you want them. Put items you hope to use soon in the freezer above your fridge or in a place inside your deep freeze where they will not be forgotten and used soon.Remove all of the excess water from the bottom of the freezer. You may use a kitchen towel for that; squeeze it into the bowl so you don't get water all over the floor. The water will be extremely cold. Once all of the water is gone, wipe down all interior surfaces of the freezer with paper towels. You don't need to use spray cleaner in the freezer unless there is some type of mess that was caused by food spilling.
  • Fill up the large container with warm water. Pour it along areas that still have a lot of ice buildup. Let it sit for a minute or two. Then take the spatula and scrape off any loose ice. The ice is likely to come off in big sheets Once again, remove the ice and water from the bottom of the freezer. Repeat this process until all of the ice is removed from the sides of the freezer.

    Water collecting and freezing in bottom of freezer

    Hi, Remove the rear inside panel of the freezer and locate the drain hole under the evaporator coil. Remove the ice and flush the drain hole with hot water to make sure it is free. You can try running a soft wire through the drain also.
    I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

    Freezer leaking water

    My Whirlpool has been filling the bottom under the crispers with water and leaking out the vents (?) from the freezer down into the fridge compartment. I finally caught it today being rather loud, probably in a defrost cycle, and it was positively POURING in the fridge. After some more research on this site I removed the freezer bottom tray (1/4" ratchet needed) and found a layer of 1/2" thick ice under the tray. My guess is the drain hole iced up. Removed all the ice from under the tray and on the metal drain run in the back (danger, seemed sharp) and put it all back together. I didn't try to pour hot water down the drain yet, thinking positive thoughts that the drain itself isn't iced all the way to the tray near the floor. Will watch it carefully.

    Water puddling in bottom of freezer which freezes

    Tool needed: Screw drive with the insert tips can be used to remove screws use the end of the screw driver with out a philips bit or flat tip inserted. Remove frozen food to camping coolers igloo ice chests or coleman ice chests or a freezer in your home . Remove all racks and baskets to expose movable panels at the inside back of the freezer compartment.
    Notice the 1/4" hex nuts remove the screws holding the panels at the back wall. Clear built up ice carefully. You now can take out the panels and expose the fan and cooling cool that creates the cold temperature on the freezer side.

    Near the bottom is an aluminum U shaped pan with a shallow funnel indentation at the bottom. Clear ice from the funnel pan and inside bottom carefully. Sharp objects break ice nicely and can pierce the interior surfaces . Look under the cooling coil and at the back wall is a screw holding this soft metal catch pan in place. Remove the screw and carefully tip and slid out the catch pan tray. You now have access to the drain hole that is frozen closed or clogged. Place a large towel in the bottom of the freezer area to catch water. Pour hot tap water a half cup at a time into the drain area. Do not use boiling water the plastic inside a refrigerator or freezer can not tolerate high temperature. I have melted a freezer compartment in a GE with a hair dryer. Remove the water with a clean reag and add more warm or hot water repeat until the drain allows water to flow. stop adding water or the evaporation pan under the refrigerator will over flow.
    Check the refrigerator about once a year for the freezeup problem or keep an eye on the bottom of the freezer looking for the build up of water frozen on the inside floor. The other solution get a new refrigerator.

    Water leaking frigidaire frs23h5as

    yes remove the rear panel in the freezer where you see the drain hole. Clear the ice from the drain hole. It will take a while for the water to start to drain because the ice is deep in the insulation. A small tube is helpful to draw some hot water in and stick in in the drain hole and squirt the hot water down in the hole.
