I do not believe the problem is the fan. sounds like the frig. is low on Freon this is what will cause the ice build up. you need to find the leak, you can do this by spraying soapy water on coil tubes & watch for bubbles. repair leak & recharge.
The hose that goes into the drip pan to defrost the refer is plugged with stuff. take the back off and see the hose connection.A coat hanger works well.Usually a 1/4" hose. Also see where the bottom of the freezer drains into the drip pan.That may be plugged,also. The temp may be set too low and the condenser is frozen up,leaking water into the floor.Just ice stuck to the condenser. Possible that the condenser FAN stopped turning. That will ice up and melt at random: see/hear that the fan is working. If stuff gets into the fan,it will ice up,melt and make a mess on the floor.
The water filter should be changed every six months, not two years. The water lines may still be frozen even though you turned the unit off, but most likely you are not getting water flow due to a clogged filter. Change it.
This is normal when compressor starts u can hear some gurgling from evap. from feron flowing. If you hear gurgling only when you close the door it's water in drain pan when you close the door air is forced down drain tube blowing air into water.
hi i have same problem one of my lodgers left the door open and it froze thick with ice i defrosted it and let it dry for 3 days and was fine for a couple of days then it defrosted so i switched it of for 24 hours it worked fine for a day before it defrosted again could you email me with any help thanks [email protected] matt
Your drain line is clogged. Take a small diameter pice of wire and snake out the drain line from inside the freezer.
You may have to access the back rear near the compressor and separate the drain line there and clean it further.
The model number would help but it sounds like a sealed system leak or restriction. If thats the case I would not suggest trying this yourself. The water should freeze overnight and the frost should keep going to all the shelfs that have coils in them.
