Ice forming in bottom of freezer

In the bottom of the freezer side, every other day we must chip out a 3/8 inch thick ice that forms...otherwise we have water running out of the freezer onto the floor. Other than that..everything seems to be the proper temp.

Rita, your drain hole is frozen over and when your refer goes into defrost the water is running out into the cabinet instead of down the drain hole. Remove the evaporator cover and poor some boiling water in the evaporator drip pan. This should melt the ice and clear the drain hole....Catriver...post back.

Samsung refrigerator is freezing up on back panel of refrigerator . Will defrosting the whole unit do any good? The unit is 2 years old

well yes and no , defrosting it will temporally make it work , but main problem is there isn't proper air flow over evaporator coils id clean them with soap and water while defrosting out unit , if low airflow is allowed to continue then refrigerant gas will build to high press and escape and render unit a total replacement

Sounds like the drainage hole is blocked with ice, i normally take the back cover off the freezer and at the bottom you will see a build up of ice at the bottom, turn freezer off and carefully remove as much ice as you can, then pour some boiling water over the excess ice and in the middle you will see a drain hole make sure water then freely flows down drain hole. Other than that you could try switching your freezer off for 24 hours to clear ice.

5 years - no problems, then started to ice up . Ice forms in the bottom and will develop 1 to 1 inch thick sheet in about 10 days

Check drain under freezer coils and clean out. Look out for frozen drain instead of trash Use hot water or turn off 24 hrs if that is the case. I usually insert a phillips screwdriver dowm in the drain and
pour hot water on the screwdriver so the heat transfers downm the screwdriver to the ice clog.

Neverending ice cystals buildup in freezer

Hi Rachel,

Opened 3-10 times per day, per week, per month?

There is only one possible source of these ice crystals -- moisture precipitating from the air (condensate) -- this air is coming from outside the freezer. It's either getting in when the freezer is opened or coming in around the gasket.

You might try a very thin coat of vaseline on the gasket to get a better seal.

GE Monogram refrigerator/freezer problem/ice dam in ice maker

I have had the same problem with ice forming. I found the problem is from the ice maker. The water fill tube delivers water to a plastic piece that acts like a funnel. The water goes through this plastic piece into the ice maker. Ice forms in the plastic funnel piece causing the water to overflow into the ice bin and freezer.
