You have aclogged drain. remove the panel in the back of the freezer that exposes the evaporator you will want to shut the unit off too. next remove as much ice from the pan as possoble. use a hair dryer to help get the big stuff loose. now you will want very hot water and pour it in the drain pan. your going to make a mess at frist but you need to do it untill the ice in the drain is melted and the water will flow into the drip pan. make sure you cloan all the food drbris also. after it is clear put the back on and turn the unit back on. you will not get any more ice buildup as long as it stays unclogged. and the ice is from the defrosting of the evaporator.

Recently noticed ice accumulation in bottom of freezer below the bin. broke up & removed ice sheet of 1/4 to 3/8 in thick. also removed ice from ledge above bin that also has drain hole on left side....


You have a clogged drain. Usually I remove the ice, take a screwdriver and tap it into the drain hole. Then I pour hot water down it until I see that the water is draining all the way out.

I have a maytag bottom freezer refrigerator model#mbf1956keq


apparently its the way the maytag defrosts. I have had this issue since I bought it. FIrst of all, you dont have to go through the whole defrosting process with water on the floor and removing your freezer contents. Simply take a butter knife and from the front corner, slide it under the edge of the ice and the whole sheet can be slid out intact right under the freezer door. I think it had alot to dowith having the humidity switch on, because when it isn't like in the summer when the AC is running, the amount of ice is not that bad.

Ice repeatedly forms at the bottom of the freezer compartment. Eventually it reaches the door and water leaks out. Signature Series Frostfree Model HMG51108


Your defrost drain line is frozen up.
Turn off fridge, remove bottom freezer drawers.
Remove visible ice.
Take a hair dryer and melt ice at the back of the freezer at the drain pan.
Pour a water and bleach mixture through drain hole.
This procedure could take a hour or more.

The blue wire goes to the overload (common), the other two wires will go on either side of the relay.  If you have an orange wire put it on start.

Bottom of freezer icing with thick sheet of ice


you have a froen drain thats why it is allways getting ice on the floor. you need to remove as much as you can then remove the back of the freezer so you can clear the drain pan and clear the drain. its not hard to do just you will have a lot of water on the bottom and your floor maybe. once you remove the ice from the pan have some very hot water and pour it in the pan utill the drain is free and the water go's down into the drip pan. shut the unit off untill tour done and be carefull around the coils. once its clear put the back on and plug the fridge back in. you will now have no more ice build up. make sure there is no food back there that can block the drain either. its a god time to clean the freezer out
