You need to remove the evaporator cover panel in the back. On some models this is easy, just a few screws, on others it is more difficult and if there is an icemaker it must be removed. Once you can see the evaporator coi, the defrost water drain is below it. **** it out and clear any ice.

Sounds like you mad have a bad relay or overload on the compressor. I would also check your condenser fan motor to make sure its running and blowing air on the compressor to cool it. If its not running the compressor may be overheating and shutting off on its overload. If the condenser fan motor is running I would assume that you would need a new relay and overload it will come in a kit. Usually it will make a clicking sound when the compressor is TRYING to start and then shuts off on its overload if the start components are bad.
Hope this helps _MJ_

It sounds like there is an issue with the drain tube from the freezer to the compressor pan. If it is open at the bottom then it will allow warm moist air to form an ice plug in the tube which will not allow water to flow out during a defrost, this will gradually build up then stop the freezer from functioning normally. This will be shown by large formation of clear solid/layered ice. Alternately if it is plugged with some foreign object then it will end up doing the same thing. The next time you do a defrost verify that there is water coming out to the pan at the compressor if not the tube will have to be cleared. The best way is compressed air but not too much since this is just a plastic tube. the obstruction should be blown out the top.

There should be a small trap on the bottom of the drain tube kind of like the one under the kitchen sink if it is not there then you will have to either make one or get one from your local parts dealer.

test: first, turn off water supply to frig. then dry up all water. then ensure frig is running at right temperature. now gradually turn on water and observe where leak is. My guess is it is overflowing the ice-maker. there is an adjustment for this. pop off the cover over the end of the ice-maker. look for a screw adjustment. turn it counterclockwise.

try turning down water pressure or reduce flow into ice maker by turning tap partially off, this should resolve problem. Regards Advisor

Sounds to me that you may have a loose bracket or something else loose under the drawer. Typically the fan won't run until you close the drawer which takes me there. Unless you are a qualified technician please don't attempt to repair it yourself!!

You are evidently holding the drawer. Look inside of the hole and at the back should be the slides and a latch at the back....You may just have to lift the drawer to lock into the slides. You may have to take the lid off of it first.

Well; without a repair guide for procedures and how to test the different components; your guess is as good as mine. Look for the simplest solution 1st. Dust build up, condensate lines plugged etc. Always unplug the unit before diagnosing. The fan has an automatic relay and can start at any time.

It does matter if you do break the bulb. Turn the power off and push a dinner knife into and turn the bulb base out using the knife like a screwdriver. or you can grab the edge with needle nose pliers and grab the edge, and roll the base up. The metal will pull away from the edge of the socket. I have done both many times.

Yes the ice machine can be repaired it might have to be replaced then.

First clean the coils. When I've seen coils freeze, the likely problem is a coolant (refrigerant) leak. This you can not repair yourself since the damage in the pipe must be fixed after removing the remaining coolant. Then new coolant could be added at the correct pressure. Sometimes, the freezing problem can damage the fan motor but that is a side effect not usually the cause. I hope this helps.
