My side by side frig has 1 inch of ice on the bottom of the freezer every 3 days. I have turned off the water to the unit, I have checked the water dispenser and nothing comes out. I turned off the ice maker. Its been 5 days and ice continues to build up. I replaced a $100 gasket so far. I don't suspect a water leak since its been 5 days with no new water. Does this have a reservoir that has water and might be leaking, is there a defroster that is melting the ice and causing that much ice to build up that often. Is there another component I need to look at/replace. Thanks in advance for any and all assistance.

yup,at the bottom rear of the freezer,there is a drain trough that is probably frozen up and won't allow water from future defrost cycles te run out-you need to remove the rear freezer panel,remove ice from trough and drain hole and install part #819043 which will channel heat into the drain hole during defrost to prevent freeze up.
