Hi and welcome to FixYa
. I am Kelly
Actually I want you to look in the bottom of the freezer compartment at the evaporator drain area. Look for standing water OR signs of ice in the very back of the freezer but on the bottom usually center of the rear access area. If you see standing
water there or slabs of ice... the evaporator drain is clogged and will need to be cleared by a manual defrosting with a fan for about 2 hours. (Messy)
Every automatic defrost cycle the process of defrosting via an electrified heater makes water 2 to 3 times a day depending
on the scheduled
defrost cycle periods. It can be from 6 hour to 10 hour intervals. Once that water collects if the drain is clogged it will sheet in the bottom of the freezer because it can not drain into the catch tray under the back of the unit once the unit goes back to normal cooling.
Now as for the ice-maker
. Here is a way to make sure or not it actually is the a problem with the ice maker water valve.
( I C E M A K E R Switched O F F )
On the back of the unit there is a plastic water line that goes to the rubber through the cabinet fill tube. Squeeze the clamp and remove the plastic hose. Place that hose in a bucket for at least 12 hours. At the end of 12 hours check the bucket for any significant signs of water. If there is water in the bucket with ice maker OFF then the ice maker water valve is bypassing water and will have to be replaced.
Your water valve is item 55 this link:
Note there is a substitude part number. It is OK the alternate part number will work just fine.
If the link above does not work here is another source:
