The bottom of the freezer builds up ice, the fan was replaced months ago but when too much ice builds up the refrigerator and freezer shuts down and doesn't work. When i defrost the freezer it starts working again. Could the filter drier be clogged?

Hello Genell, Thank you for the question. I suggest checking the Defrost Heater, PartSelect Number PS11738605. You can test the heater for continuity with a multi meter. Hope this helps!
Hello Lewis, Thank you for the question. Water is normal during the defrost cycle, however it should drain into the Pan under the appliance to evaporate. We suggest checking the P-Trap Drain Tube for a clog or blockage preventing the water from draining. We hope this helps!
