A:

Check the settings on your freezer temperature. A higher than normal freezer temperature will cause the ice maker to produce less ice. If the setting is okay, I recommend that you measure the temperature inside the freezer. Place an accurate thermometer between some bags of frozen vegetables to get an accurate reading. If it is not around zero degrees, I recommend that you try to adjust the settings to maintain that temperature. If you encounter problems with cooling in the freezer, reply with additional details and we will try to help you further.

A:

I can understand your concern about ice building up on the floor of the freezer. The information you have received from Joseph is good but it does not pertain to this problem. This type of problem occurs, when the drain line freezes closed. Every time the unit goes into a defrost cycle, water will run into the freezer now, instead of going down the drain. To clear the drain, everything in the freezer will have to be taken out, so the back panel can be removed. With the panel off, you will see the evaporator and directly under it the drain system. You can use a hair dryer to remove the ice build up and with the ice gone, you will be able to see the drain hole. Hot water will be needed to clear the drain hole. The drain will be clear, when the hot water runs down into the bottom drain pan. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, any additional details will be helpful and I will be glad to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

mike, Scott is on vacation so I will be helping you. You are correct, you need to remove the pans, drawer, and all the food from the freezer to access the rear panel of the freezer. Disconnect the power to the refrigerator while you are defrosting and removing the ice. Use a hair dryer to melt the ice and don't use a sharp object on any ice on the evaporator coil. The evaporator coil is made of aluminum and can be punctured easily. Clear all the ice from the small drain pan attached to the bottom of the evaporator coil and pour very hot water through the drain after it is open. The hot water will remove any obstruction inside the drain hose. This problem is usually caused by an obstruction inside the drain hose. Algae tends to build up inside the hose over time. The hot water should prevent the problem from reoccuring.
