Self defrosting / but there is ice in the bottom


The most common thing that causes this is a stopped up drain. Thaw the ice out of the bottom and locate the drain hole (probably towards the back, possibly behind the back panel) and clear with with a stiff wire or coat hanger.

If the water is unable to drain from the freezer during the defrost cycle it collects in the bottom and freezes there when the freezer is running again.

Hope this helps, let me know if you need further assistance.

We have a GE 20.3 cu. ft. upright frost free freezer that keeps forming a layer of ice on the bottom, which we assume is happening when it is defrosting. How do we unclog the drain?


I let the ice box thaw out and use a shop vac to open the drain hole. You can find the end of the drain hose above the compressor drain pan.

Frost free freezer


Hi, It sounds like the defrost drain is plugged. UNPLUG the freezer. Remove the rear panel and you will be able to find the drain hole and remove the ice. Once you get the iceout of the drain. try and fluxh it with hot water (A baisting serigne works great). Sometines they plug up with duse from underneath. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

ICE BUILDUP ON BOTTOM OF FREEZER, DRAIN HOLE FROZEN


There is normally a small filiament of metal which is attached to the defrost element and conducts heat down the drainpipe preventing ice build up. You can pour some boiling water onto this area and even wriggle a piece of plastic tubing down the drain pipe to dislodge any blockage. For future prevention, you can attach a piece of copper wire around the defrost element (in the absence of the original filiament) and extend it down the drainpiple

Water in the floor


there is a drain hose that comes out of the bottom of the cabinet into a drain pan underneath your freezer take a look and see if that got pulled loose during your move. if it is in place then you most likely have a plugged drain. this can be cleaned fromt he inside at the botom. reomve the bottom basket and the shelf right above it. you will see ice build up on the floor of the freezer and and behind the cover. just defrost the ice you will uncover the drain hole flush warm water thru the line till it runs clear. good luck peyton

Ice built up on bottom of freezer then dripping down front


Probably a clogged drain. Use a pipe cleaner to unclog, then a turkey baster with hot water to clean out anything else. Then when the drain is clear, pour a weak bleach solution down the drain to kill the mold that probably caused the blockage If possible remove all food and let it sit unplugged for a day or two. This will clear some defrost problems.

Frost Free Freezer


sounds like you have a clogged/frozen defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials)
