Re: ice in the bottom of frigidaire side by side frost...
Take all the bottom shelves and baskets out of the freezer. look at the back wall of the freezer. youll see a block of ice in a metal pan looking part at the bottom of the rear panel. there is a hole in the bottom of that pan. thats the defrost drain. its clogged. use a hair dryer to get all the ice out then use hot water to flush out the drain hole.

because your drain is clogged and now frozen, now the defrosted frost is staying in the freezer. you must defrost the drain and than, clean the drain and insure that water can flow out into the drain pan.
Hi, The defrost drain behind the rear freezer panel is plugged. Remove the rear panel and clear the ice away from the drain. Then you will need to flush the drain hole with hot water to make sure it is open. Some models require an after market drain heat kit. Please get me your model # and I can look this up to let you know if you need that heat kit.
take out everything and at the lower inside back of the freezer you have a drain ..... pour hot water till it opens / the water comes from you evap when it goes into defrost and it cant get out the drain / Larry
Defected DEFROST HEATER can cause frost build up on the panel at the back of the freezer,and freezer stop cooling and ice frozen on unit so air could not flow to refrigerator side.Water will coming out caused of unbalanced freezing,and causing the flooding of water in the floor. You must change this defroster heater assembly so it will works normal again..
