Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Chances are you have a clogged or frozen drain which is behind back inside panel of freezer or the door may not be sealing but more than likely the drain. You can use boiling water to thaw the drain once you remove the panel.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Ice collects in the bottom of the freezer not allowing door to shut


BA Baker... hello,

Ice collecting on the bottom of the freezer.. is not such a terrible thing...

(Probably means the defrost is working... (merely not EXITING)).

New refrig or unfamiliar refrig could cause deeper analysis...
but if ...

If this is not a new device... and has been happily tending to it's own needs (evaporating well) for a while (months would be re-assuring)...

Then you are MOST probably looking at a clogged evaporator drain... (usually easily fixed by negotiating "WARM" (not hot) through the bottom vents slots of your freezer section.

Looking under your Refrigerator/Freezer... or consulting your owners manual... Locate your defrost "catch" pan...

It should NOT be dusty...

(easily tested: clean paper in tray...
Still clean tomorrow = clogged drain (pan is watered daily).

Close inspection should reveal a tube descending into it.... This is where you will watch for your patiently applied doses of warm water to appear... (near immediate).

It may take several doses... because ice can also have formed over the drain... Be persistent... You will be proud.

Please comment me back... I really like REFRIGERATORS/Frzrs...
few appliances tend to themselves so well (adorable).

We have a Bosh KIM29473GB for some time water has been collecting in the bottom tray of the fridge and only takes a few days to fill up, this weekend the freezer stopped working and now nothing works.


If you hear a click every few minutes and a buzz / click then nothing, it would sound as if your compressor is gone, the water problem is the defrost drain pipe is blocked

My upright freezer has collected water in the bottom and froze. What caused this and how to fix it?


Defrost cycle causes it. It comes from humidity in the air. You might have a blocked drain line. Try defrosting the unit for 24 hours and clearing the blockage in the back. There should be a half inch hole for water to drain out.

Self defrosting / but there is ice in the bottom


The most common thing that causes this is a stopped up drain. Thaw the ice out of the bottom and locate the drain hole (probably towards the back, possibly behind the back panel) and clear with with a stiff wire or coat hanger.

If the water is unable to drain from the freezer during the defrost cycle it collects in the bottom and freezes there when the freezer is running again.

Hope this helps, let me know if you need further assistance.

Leaking frost-free Zanussi fridge-freezer


Has this thing a separate frezer and cooler compartment.
Have tried to completely defrost and clean that thing.
At times like in airco's the pinch valve for the cooling process to effect (expansion) is stuck frozen, or very seldom broke.
