You have a clogged defrost drain, this video is for a Hot Point but it should be very similar to your model.

ok i will remove all the ice again, but i couldnt see any drain. what side would it be on on my kitchenaid??

It should be dead center under the coils, you should see the hole inside the metal pan under the heater...

ok. we are talking about the inside,right? i havent pulled out the fridge as yet

Inside the freezer section near the bottom, you will need to pull off the back cover to see it...

ok am starting on defrosting it there are three small bolts to remove and do i unplug the wiring harness on left side for icemaker too? im not a very good repairman..

I am sorry, I have made this harder, I don't know why I thought we were working on a side by side, here is another video, and yes the icemaker has to come out.
