Every six to eight hours, the defrost timer in your freezer turns on to melt any frost or ice buildup on the cooling coils behind the freezer wall. A drain hole is located along the bottom of your freezer compartment. The water from the melted ice and frost drains through a short tube and into a pan beneath the refrigerator, where it evaporates.

The Problem: Refrigerators with defrosting coils, melt out the ice built up in the freezer by heating up and allowing the water to drip into the defrost drain. When the water arrives at the tip of the drain, it is close to freezing temperature and the drain typically freezes shut. After another defrost cycle, more ice is melted and water has nowhere to go but into the lower part of the refrigerator.
