Over a period of several months, ice accumulates at the bottom of the freezer compartment, and makes closing the door difficult. I am guessing that something either hinders the evaporation of frost or this water that becomes ice when it gets into the freezer is coming from some leakage or stoppage of flow elsewhere. In the 3 years I have had this refrigerator I have had to disassemble the shelves and drawer to get to and remove this ice about a half dozen times. Is there some fix to this abnormal functioning?
Answer Hello Samuel,
This will be one of two things. If the door seal is not seating, it is frost build-up from the humidity in the air that is getting into the unit. This is corrected with a hair dryer to reform the door seal to seat against the cabinet of the unit. This other thing that will cause it is a stopped up defrost drain. Each time the unit defrosts, it melts the frost from the evaporator coils. This water produced from the melted frost should go through the drain at the bottom of the evaporator compartment into a pan in the bottom of the unit to be evaporated back into the room It is also solved with a hair dryer but you should also chase the opening with a piece of weed eater line to ensure it is clear.
