Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
Either your unit isn't defrosting on it's own properly or you're low on freon. Remove the rear of the freezer again and look at the silver evaporator coils. If the coils are packed with frost from top to bottom and left to right, you have a defrost issue. If your coils only have ice on part of them and are completely silver on 1/4 or more, then you have a freon leak and would need a technician to fix the leak. Now if you have a defrost issue, you would need a multimeter to test resistance through the heater that runs along the bottom of the silver coils. If you don't have resistance, replace the heater. If you do have resistance, there is a little sensor clipped onto the top of the silver coils and that controls the defrost so you'd need to replace that sensor.

If you're getting clear solid ice, then yes it's possible you have a drain issue. If that's the case then when you remove the back panel you'll see a trough below the silver coils and clear ice will be pouring over the top of the trough. If that's the case, use a hair dryer and thaw all the ice out, then shot hot water down the drain hole use a turkey baster. Next, blow compressed air down through the drain hole to clear all the way down to the drain pan below the unit.
Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
