Getting frost in freezer, gasket is not touching on top right corner which is where I think the air is coming in. Is there any way too adjust the freezer drawer or would it probably just need a new gasket. Also the ice maker is not working but I think will the added frost the water line might be frozen at inlet. Just need to figure out how to get drawer out to see back in there. Any ideas on how to get drawer out. Thanks Michael

when you say you cant get the drawer out are you saying you cant open the door of the freezer or is the door of the freezer fully open and now you just cant figure out how to get the interior parts out of the way to observe and test the ice maker ?    The ice maker issue sounds like a separate issue  and you need to test the icemaker for proper operation. the gasket is probably all that you need if the frost in the freezer that is accumulating is around the area of the gasket where it is open also.   Mike to be honest the hardest part is getting the freezer door open when its frozen if the freezer door is open all the way there is sometimes a little phillips  head screw that is located on the left and right side of the slide rail that when removed you can lift the whole door  and the doors support rails off of the slide rails.  If there are rivets instead of screws then you can either drill the rivets out and replace them with small screws when you put it back together or just disconnect the door from the freezer rails and get the door out of the way so you can see a little bit better and concentrate more on getting the drawers out. Don't rush and take your time so you don't break anything. Usually there are screws or plastic clips that hold the drawers in and you just need to find where they are located.  Usually if the drawer stops at some point when your pulling up on it, that is most likely where the clips are that hold them in.  a lot of the whirlpool upper freezer drawers that pull out  have a bracket at the left and right side of the metal grated drawer that has two tabs on each bracket that have to be pushed in and then the bracket has to be pulled up and then it unlocks for the draw to be fully taken out. Most of these whirlpool parts plastic or metal are screwed in or held in place with plastic tabs and you just need to find where they hold each part in place.   hope this helps
