1) the ice maker is leaking water and that water is accumulating in the freezer section.
2) The other possibility is there is defrost problem.
If the ice is getting collected due to water leaking from ice maker then, to confirm this problem, just turn off water supply to the ice maker and water dispenser.Its just the valve to turn off and on.
The valve is at the back side of refrigerator.Just turn off that valve and then check after 24 hours.Is the ice still getting collected or not.If it stops getting accumulated then ice maker is leaking.Remove the ice maker and inspect the leak.But with water turned off, still ice is accumulating, then its defrost problem.
First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check, if the problem returns again. If the same problem occurs then it's defrost problem. The defrost board and the defrost thermostat/heater is not functioning properly and it has to be checked and replaced.
The defrost assembly consists of three main parts. The defrost thermostat, the defrost heater and defrost board. Any of the one is not functioning. When thermostat sense the maximum cooling, it triggers the defrost heater to start heating and this defrosts the ice collected on the coils and the system works. Both thermostat and heater are controlled by defrost board. First the thermostat and defrost heater to be checked, if both check ok by meter and visually, then its defrost board causing the problem.
