My frost free fridg started building up ice in the freezer

Resolved Question:

My frost free fridg started building up ice in the freezer about 6 months ago. I thought that the ice maker was shot so I turned of the water supply and completely disconnected the water supply. It still builds up ice on the bottome of the freezer. I also had to place cups in the ice box to collect water dripping. What can I do?

99% of the time the problem is the defrost thermostat, Part 586213this is likely the issue with yours, is located behind the back panel in the freezer, you can get this @ thanks Bryan
