Water pooling and freezing on bottom of freezer compartment. Where is it coming from??


If you have an ice maker in there it could be that there is too much water entering the tray and the excess spills out. OR the drain that gets rid of melted ice during the auto defrost cycle could be clogged and the water stays in freezer, pools and refreezes.

if think your defrost cycle is ok . there is a defrost terminator that controls the heater at 50 deg in the back of freezer , the problem is the water delivery tube is iceing oven and causing water to run down the back of freezer wall . change the tube to newer style. it will be open on the top side . they work better. and the water valve may be leaking through. and may have to be changed .. ,,

Symptoms: Ice cubes melt, drip then refreeze causing


are you having any cooling problems? take a look at your ice cream, if you have any. does it look like it has melted and refrozen? if so, you have a cooling problem, and that is causing ice to melt, then refreeze. if you have no cooling problems, then you may have a faulty water valve solenoid, or even a faulty icemaker.

Model #PSS26PSSA SS Freezer frequently defrosts and refreezes. When this occurs, the entire ice bin melts into the freezer compartment and refreezes in puddles. Is this a common issue with this model and...


Absolutely not ! There are two types of defrost systems - timer (which relies on compressor run time) and adaptive (newer models) which relies on sensors and an electronic control and will defrost as needed...... During a defrost cycle your comrpessor and evap fan should be off, everything off - and no, a defrost cycle will NOT thaw your food in the freezer, not even your ice should melt ! To me this sounds like a defrost control problem - First thing service should check is your defrost timer and its components (control board, limiter, defrost thermostat, etc.) something is definately wrong.

Now with the advice above I am assuming that before the defrost cycle kicks in your freezer temp was in the normal range 10F and colder (0F is optimal) and refrigerator section cooler than 40F (optimal 34F). If so, then you should not have melting ICE in your freezer.

The ice in my ice maker bucket is melting and refreezing into a solid mass. I just looked at a recently made cube and it still has liquid in the center.


Yours has a 215846602 Defrost Timer, Located inside the fresh food compartment. I believe that it's sticking in defrost and you possibly need a new defrost timer.
Here is a photo location of the timer # 23 is the timer. I want you to turn the timer until the refrigerator compressor stops. Time it for about 25 minutes and the refrigerator should restart. If not then it's sticking in defrost so again turn clockwise slowly until the compressor restarts. That is possibly what is causing the melting and refreezing. Sea Breeze

WATER IN BOTTOM OF FREEZER/TURNS TO ICE FRS28XGCB


its probably the automatic defrost cycle.there should be a drain in the bottom of your freezer,and it must be clogged.The automatic defrost keeps ice from building up in your freezer by melting it,and letting the water run out the drain.If the drain is blocked by something or clogged the water collects,and refreezes.You need to unblock the drain.
