Hi

If you have ice forming in the drain gutter inside the fridge then im afraid this is down to an insulation fault in there. This happens when the foam insulation has dead spots in it or is breaking down which causes moisture to form there and then it turns into the ice.

The bad news is theres nothing you can do when this happens as the insualtion cannot be replaced or repaired. Im afraid its a new appliance here.

But this wont cause any issues with the temperture. But what it can cause is a lot of water to leak out at the bottom and all over the bottom of the fridge though.

Sorry its not good news but if you need anymore info just get back to me.

Regards
