Question about Kenmore 57029 Side by Side Refrigerator
If you remove all the ice from the freezer floor, pull the bottom bin out and look at the freezer wall there should be a trough with the drain in it. If you can't see the trough you'll need to take all the shelfs out and remove the back panel from the frezer. Once you do that you'll see an aluminum evaporator coil and below that you'll be able to see the trough and the drain hole. Remove the ice from the trough, located the drain hole and using a hair dryer, hot water, or a screw driver, clear the ice from the drain. If you use a screw driver be careful not to knock a hole in the line. Once water can flow freely down the drain your done.

sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you access to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somewhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wire around the heater( black heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now every time the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

IF YOU TAKE THE BACK OFF THE INSIDE OF THE FREEZER IT IS LOCATED UNDER THE EVAPORATOR COIL IN THE CENTER, IT IS A PIECE OF ALUMINUM SHAPED TO CATCH THE WATER, MELT THE ICE AND BLOW THE HOLE CLEAR

the drain needs to be cleared so that the water that is produced during the defrost cycle has a place to go, namely to the evaporation pan where it will evaporate.

Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear cover.
