There's warm moist air entering the unit from the back somewhere. Pull the unit away from the wall and check behind there. Look closely at where the Ice Maker fill tube enters through the back. If you find the air leak, use "perma-gum" (google it) to seal it.... not silicone.

Whirlpool Model GI6SDRXXYOO refrigerator/freezer combo (freezer drawer in bottom of unit). Does anyone know what could cause our freezer floor to have a layer of ice over it every few days? There is no...

The precipitate drain tube is plugged and the defrost water is not going down to the drain pan. The new improved drain tube solves the problem. You can also for a quick fix use a turkey baster with hot water squirted down the evaporator drain pan opening to clear the obstruction.

Fridge w/freezer on bottom will not chill

What you have is probably a bad defrost heater element is my first inclination. I would look for frost buildup on the backside of the bottom drawer. That is a sure sign of defrost failure. And most defrost failures turn out to be broken heaters. The defrost heaters mount on the evaporator coils and simply heat the area for a few seconds to melt frost. If left alone that frost will trun into snow and then into air flow blocking slab of ice and fail fresh food cooling. I have a 3 door repair manual you may want to look through just to see what you are up against. To do this repair the ice maker and all the rails drawers bins and food must come out so you can get to the rear where the evap coil and defrost heater is located.

Frost in freezer fridge warm

Sounds like the circulating fan behind the rear panel inside the freezer section is starting to go bad, This problem is very hard to diagnose because the fan still spins but at a much lower rate than needed to circulate chilled air thru the freezer and the frig. The minimum cost for parts and labor is around $300.00.

Kitchenaid bottom drawer freezer is making frost or ice flakes inside. Why?

If frost is front towards door then the seal is not sealing well . Use a hair dryer on portion which is not touching cabinet . Also check for split somewhere on gasket & if found , replace gasket . If frost on the rear wall of freezer , then a defrost problem could be starting in which the fridge section would be warming up . However , bottom freezers are known for their gaskets not to seat properly .

My Bosch frostfree fridge freezer keeps icing up!

My Bosch Frost Free Fridge Freezer did the same thing - Ice forming in the bottom of the freezer area after a few days.

It was caused by a blocked drain pipe - When the freezer does the de-frosting cycle, the melted ice drips into a tray and tehn runs into a dish on top of teh compressor, through a pipe.

If this pipe gets blocked, the de frosted ice overflows from the tray and overflows into the bottom of the freezer and then re-freezes !

To fix, pull the freezer away form the wall, locate the pipe that runs to the dish on top of the compressor and blow through it - This should clear it. Alternatively, from inside the freezer compartment, pull off the cover at the back, but the clips holding it on will probably break off, as mine did ! You can sort of push the cover back on and re-fit the food draws.

Bottom drawer does not properly close

Okay, I fixed it for now. The design for this bottom freezer drawer is not good. What happened was most likely that my son slammed the door, and it bounced and was slightly open. Overnight, ice started to form all over the compartment, including inside the drawer guides. Some ice was probably obstructing the drawer glide from sliding shut.

What I did, not thinking this was the solution, was to prop chairs against the drawer to close it while I searched for answers on the Internet. In the meantime, some of this ice must have refrozen in the closed position (due to the weight of the chairs). When I went to check it later, I had a little trouble opening the drawer. I gave it a hard yank and some small frost flew off, as I opened the drawer.

It was not easy sliding it due to the frost. I then moved it out and in until it felt smooth, and finally closed the drawer and it stayed in the shut position.

Kids are instructed to close the drawer gently and visually check that it is sealed. There is also an air passage between the refrigerator unit and the freezer so that when you close the double french doors, some air pushed to the freezer section and momentarily pops the drawer open. You should make sure that the drawer closes before leaving the kitchen. If you are on vacation, prop chairs to make sure both the freezer drawer and the french doors stay closed. This is important if you're in an earthquake area as a small tremor could open the doors and you'll get a fire when the lights stay on and burn through the wiring (as others have noted).

Water leaks from inside refrigerator

could be ice is forming at the vents already.

even though it is a frost less refrigerator, in some instances, you may want to defrost it manually or leave the door open for 1 day just to be sure that every ice in the fridge has melted. then plug it back in and observe it.

tnx 4 using fixya,
