all the new ones in the front on bottom
all the old ones are on the back attached to hose pull out the fridge to see turn off an drain water ,disconnect an go buy one .
i like to back flush them with bleach ugh i found slime.
you have a blocked drain, shut off the control to the fridge so the fan doesn't blow,take out the racks and remove the inside back wall of freezer,melt out the ice with a hair dryer,now you have to unblock the drain,i use a steamer to do this,you can get one for around 50 bucks,they have alot of other uses,good tool to have,stick the nozzle in the drain hole and blast it,the steam will sanitize the line and clean out whatever is in the drain,when you think it's clear pour hot water down drain to make sure it's clear.a piece of food or other stuff could have fallen into the drain or slime builds up in the line over the years
if the clog is soft, kind of slimmy, you can remove the water line and flush it with white vinagar and water mixed, blow thru the line to push the slime out - if hard scale, you will need to use pure vinagar and soak the line to disolve the deposits.
The model number in this case is not important. The problem you are having is most likely a defrost drain blockage caused by several different reasons. If after removing the food try to see if you can find the opening at bottom of the freezer and most times hiding behind the rear panel. They are a problem only until they are cleaned out or the problem resolved. Sometimes the refrigerator leans a little and the water begins to pool on one side until it slowly reaches the drain opening and then slowly freezes the opening shut. Other times there is slime or gunk that needs to be cleared from the drain and once that is done the problem is resolved. Some people use a turkey baster and fill with hot water and clorox and force the trash out. Again the Clorox helps kill any slime that may slow down water draining to the defrost tray below the refrigerator during defrost. You can also push a rope through the opening. until it appears in the exit below refrigerator. And other cases where the water flow has not stopped at the ice maker and this is the problem. I am trying to rebuild a page that has some helpful information and will leave you a link shortly. Thanks Sea Breeze

Pink Slime coming out of the Water Dispenser on your Fridge:We contacted our appliance repair guy about this for one of our rental properties. He informed me that the pink slime is an algae formed in the water line. You won't get that out & is it not repairable. The fridge will be condemned if you send out an appliance repairman. It is very crucial to replace the entire fridge, because it is a highly reactive algae that will make people extremely sick!
SORRY TO SAY THIS BUT IT SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE BLACK ALGEA IN YOU WATER SYS WHICH IS GOING TO REQUIRE A TECH TO REPLACE ALL THE TUBING IN YOUR WATER INLET SYS TO GET RID OF IT. GOOD LUCK AND CONTACT APPLIANCE SERVICE CO. P.S. DON'T DRINK THE WATER OR USE THE ICE IT WILL CAUSE MEDICAL COMPLICATIONS
