Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
does your refrigerator have an ice maker ? what I need you to do is clear the drain line. on yours to do this you need to remove the back panel inside the freezer section behind your food. I'm giving you a link to all the diagram. you need to remove the bottom of the freezer # 603 and then the back panel, once thats removed take boiling water and pour it over the ice under the coils until the drain defrosts and the water drains freely. heres the link. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=226550&diagram_id=20252526#d20252526 just click the blue link for diagrams. if you have and ice maker you need to remove that also. thanks, Bryan

no ice maker--trays only

 

so, the answer remains the same but, there's no ice maker to remove; correct?

Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
correct. remove the bottom of the freezer # 603 and then take the screws out of the back panel and remove that, you will see the ice under the evaporator coils. this happens a lot on the refrigerators. just make sure the drain is clear and its draining freely.
