SOURCE: Ice and water on bottom of freezer

sjlobo, sounds like your defrost drain pan is frozen over or has some gunk in it. When the unit goes into defrost the water is running onto the freezer floor and out the front. Remove the lower bin and check the drain hole. You may have to remove the freezer back panel. If you can, just use some very hot water and some sort of baster to unfreeze the drain. Check this first, Catriver..post back.

Defrost drain system is plugged and not draining out the back and into the drain collector. There is normally an air trap in this drain line under the back and behind a fiber removable panel. Check this trap and make sure it is clear of any blockage. You will then have to defrost the freezer and clear out the ice. Don't forget to replace the back fiber panel.

SOURCE: Bottom of freezer has water dripping into it

We had a similar problem. It ended up being a frozen pea that fell down into the defrost drain and was blocking the water from draining out each time the freezer defrosted.

Check for a blocked defrost drain. Take the panel off at the back of the freezer section and find the small hole at the very bottom center below the cooling coils. Use hot (but not boiling) water and a turkey baster to flush it out until water runs through it. (it will go into the defrost drain pan, where it will evaporate)
This will prevent water from comming out the freezer door and leaking onto your floor and running down your copper pipe to the basement.

What causes ice build-up on the floor of the ice-maker/freezer compartment.


Hello, My name is Peter. I am a former Sears Home Services Tech.

You have a frozen/blocked drain at the back bottom of your freezer. This is a common problem that happens over time. I assume you have a side by side? I have found pieces of corn... The normal repair is to take the lower back freezer wall off, using hot water or a steamer defrost the drain hole, then install a hot wire from the defrost heater into the drain hole. That's if I were there.
Your cooling coil also has a heater. Every 8-10 hours your freezer will shut down for about 10 minutes to defrost. When it defrost the condensate (water) drips down to the drain. If the drain is frozen or plugged the water accumulates in the bottom of your freezer section. One water droplet will hang up in the drain and then another until the drain is frozen.
Here is what YOU DO. Using a hair dryer melt the ice on the bottom of your freezer. NO NOT USE A Hammer or anything like that. You will crack the liner and then have some serious problems.
Use a plastic spatula to help lift the sheets of ice out. Put the hair dryer toward the bottom back where the drain is located. Continue to melt this ice until you see the drain hole. Once found, pore warm water into the back tray. Try to collect this water and repeat the process until the water goes down the drain.

If you have any questions call me 443-306-1362. I will expect a Christmas card.

Your drain line is frozen and not allowing the defrost water to drain to the pan below. The drain hole is at the bottom of the evaporator coil in the freezer behind the metal rear panel. You may need to remove the panel to access it. You can use hot water to thaw it out and you should be in good shape.

Ice maker won't work


Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen. To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker at top back. Use a flexible item to insert in the water line connection. I used a zip tie. If the flexible item won't all the through to the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connect everything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water Inlet Valve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge. Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.

The defrost drain hole in the freezer side is frozen closed.
Turn off the fridge.Remove the bottom bin and look on the back wall of the freezer for the drain pan. It will have a block of ice in it. Use a hair dryer to defrost the pan AND the drain hole inside the pan,until you can pour a cup of water through the drain hole.

Yes. Your defrost drain hole in the lower rear of the freezer is frozen over with ice. Turn off the fridge. Remove the shelves and bins from the freezer side. Break up any ice on the floor of the freezer and dispose of it. Use a hair dryer to melt the ice over the drain hole in the rear portion of the freezer. Once it is clear pour a 1/4 cup of bleach into the drain hole.

The problem was the defrost drain funnel was full and frozen. The issue of only getting crushed ice is still an issue. I need to investigate this more.
