SOURCE: Water collecting in refrigerator and ice collecting in freezer

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

SOURCE: Bosch frost free fridge freezer

Such a frost build-up usually indicates a problem in the self-defrosting system or damaged door gaskets.

The refrigerator is supposed to self-defrost approximately four times in every 24 hour period. If one of the components in the self-defrosting system fails, the refrigerator continues to try to cool. Eventually, though, so much frost builds up on the evaporator coils that the circulating fan can't draw air over the coils. There may still be a small amount of cooling because the coils are icy, but with no air flow over the coils, cooling in the refrigerator compartment is quite limited.

Here's an inexpensive, though inconvenient, way to determine if the problem is with the self-defrosting system. Remove all of the perishable food from the refrigerator and freezer, turn the thermostat in the refrigerator to Off, and leave the doors open for 24 to 48 hours. (Be sure to have several towels ready in case the melting frost and ice causes the drip pan to overflow). This allows the refrigerator to defrost "manually." When the frost and ice build-up has completely melted away, turn the thermostat back to a normal setting. If the refrigerator then cools properly, it indicates a problem with one of three components in the self-defrosting system:

  • The defrost timer


  • The defrost thermostat (also called the bi-metal switch)


  • The defrost heater


If it still does not cool properly, there may be a problem with the refrigerant level or the compressor. You may need to consult with a qualified appliance repair technician to further diagnose the problem

SOURCE: ice collects in bottom of freezer

ive just actually just fixed our fridge freezer, pull all draws out take out two screw on back panel then remove then pull out the other panel with fan connected.
At the bottom under the coil you will see a shelf all this will be ice pour boiling water on ice and remove when it starts breaking up, you will then see a small hole on the left of the shelf pour hot water down every minute or so and if you have a syringe take excess water out before pouring more boiling water down after a while the hole will a clear up and the ice gone.

Why does ice collect at bottom of freezer?


The freezer has the only coil in the unit that gets cold. IT does build up with ice. The unit has a defrost heater that comes on to melt the ice. The water from this process is supposed to drain down a tube into the bottom pan that you cannot se under the unit. IF the tube is plugged with ice or other debris, the water from the defrost cycle cannot drain correctly and runs into the bottom of the freezer. There is quit a bit of work involved in getting this to work again.

Ice build up in our chest freezer in back corner over compressor


Is the ice actually on the compressor. Have you defrosted it lately. You may find a drain stopped up. This can occur when debris collects in it.

Refrigerator model GR-B247WV Bottom of freezer compartment has frozen water recently. Could it be the heating element or the computer chip is faulty? Is there a number I could call for repair? Thank...


Hi,

You may have a blocked drain. Therefore when your fridge goes into a defrost cycle, the melted water usually travels down a drain hole and collects in a container above your compressor, which eventually evaporates.

If the drain gets blocked, the water collects at the bottom of freezer and freezes.

If the defrost mechanism fails you will have ice and frost building up all along the back plate of the freezer, not just the bottom.
You can place calls to expert help on this site.

Water at bottom of refrigirator


Find the drain line from the freezer to the evaporation pan near the motor. Often the line is visible on the back of the fridge. That line is plugged either with food residue or the collection point in the freezer is solid ice. The self defrost feature melts the frost and drains it to the evap pan. If you remove the floor from the freezer area, you will see the collection point. When the line gets plugged with food, no water drains and then freezes to block the line even worse. So, if there is ice at the collection point, remove it somehow, maybe a hair dryer, and then clear the line by blowing compressed air from the bottom of the drain hose through to the collection point.

Amana bottom freezer: water leaking & ice build-up


There should be some kind of drain at bottom of freezer compartment to collect and run off any condensate that collects during defrost cycle.. Clean out the drain and snake out the line that leads from it. Right now the liquid is collecting where it should not and it will leak out the gasket when you have enough of it.

Top freezer develops ice on left bottom side.


it has to be connected other wise its true that ice will get collected.because the compressor will give its coldness in refrigerator so the cold air of freezer will also get collected in refrigerator side, because there is no ice dispenser connected.connect the icedispenser.
to make it proper.

Freezer on the bottom model # PBF2555HEW Freezer works refrigerator not cooling at all


We let the fridge thaw for two days, cleaned it from top to bottom especially the coils and underneath. We moved it outside and used an air compressor to blow out the dust and dirt around the coils so nothing was damaged in the process. It works like a charm and probably more efficiently too. Before it had quit working it was freezing in the refrigerator part. So that was an indicator something was clogged. Moisture that collects and freezes blocks the air from circulating. The freezer worked great! But ice cream was too hard.  Now it's just right.

Amana BX22A2W - freezer works, fridge not cooling


Same problem here with an Amana refrigerator with the freezer on the bottom. I removed the back panels and vacuumed dust and cat hair out. The back panel in the freezer was frosted over with ice on the bottom. I removed the shelves and food and used a hairdryer to loosen the panel. The ice maker made it harder to remove the plastic panel so I pulled it back and saw the cooling fins frozen solid. I used the hairdryer to melt the ice and a shop vacuum to collect the water. It works like new again.
