Thank you for using Just Answer. I will be glad to assist you in your answer. Think about safety when doing repairs, electric, water, gas, ect.

Please open the freezer drawer. Do you see a solid sheet of ice on the floor of the freezer inside?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Ah ha...yes I do.


 

Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.
Ok, this means that the defrost drain is plugged. You will have to access the inside rear panel of the freezer and remove it. Spray hot water where the ice it, using towels to soak the water. The drain will be revealed, keep using hot water until the water flows down the drain. Make sure the drain is clear, and reassemble. You cannot put much water down the drain, or you will overflow the drain pan under the fridge and get much water on your floor. If you feel this is more than you want to tackle, you may want to hire an appliance tech to do it. I hope this information has assisted you. Please give me a great rating for answering your question. You can still respond back for more information at anytime, just by replying back to this question....thank you

Sounds simple enough. Thanks!

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Sorry, one more clarification. I do not see a removable panel inside my freezer.

Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.
The panel that has to be removed is the inside rear panel. This is the panel, or back wall of the freezer. It has the vent which the air blows out of. There are 4 screws which have to be removed on the cover. The vent has to be removed, there are pictures of screwdrivers on the vent where you need to release the vent clips to remove it. You will first have to remove the door panel, and all the baskets, and drawers before getting to this panel. Thanks again.
