Must be a top freezer. The defrost drain is frozen shut or if its the one with the big drain opening then there is a fix for it which was discussed on this forum within the last week or two.

Take out the back wall inside the freezer.You will see the coil and down at the bottom is the tray that catches the defrost water.

10-4, what do I do with the tray? Is there a hole I need to defrost or drain?

Thanks Again!

When you remove the back panel you will see a water basin with a hole in the center......this is the drain

You access the drain from the control box, not the freezer.  Click the link on my previous post, should explain everything.
