Hi all, novice appliance homeowner here.  In addition to what is described by the title I see a small line of Ice from a drip or leak behind a panel on the rear wall.  The bottom depression in the freezer floor is completely filled with an ice rink.  Looks to be small ice puddles along that rear wall "shelf".  

 

At the rear water inlet (about 1.5 feet up on the back of the freezer) it looks like there may have been water dripping out of the fill inlet. Not wet upon inspection, but rusty.

 

Ice cubes are forming correctly.  

 

Any direction for me?

Thanks!

Ryan

Based on your info I believe you have a condensate drain  that's frozen or clogged. There should be a hole beneath the evap panel that drains defrost water into a pan underneath the fridge.  You have to remove the ice and open the hole...I use a steamer as seen in the video found in the linked post , to remove the "ice rink" and open up the drain hole.  You can use very hot water.  You may to remove the evap panel to get access, I'm not sure however. Also you may have to check under your fridge where the drain tube enters the pan, if water does not drain freely after you remove clog.

 

I think all the fridges in the video are SxS but same principle applies
