    Kenmore Elite Refrigerator Freezing building ice on bottom

    I have a Kenmore Elite Refrigerator it has the french doors at the top and the freezer is a drawer on the bottom.
    Every 2-4 days a solid sheet of ice will form at the bottom. I thought maybe the ice maker was leaking but have eliminated it, then maybe the door seal was not properly closing but that is not the case either. It appears after searching the WWW that this is common. What are some things can I check to fix this issue?

    sounds like clogged drain line... when in defrost mode sometimes trash gets in the drain hole... pull the evap. cover in the freezer side see if the hole is clogged, hope I can help
