Why do I get ice buildup on the back wall of my bottom freezer compartment?

I have a Kenmore fridge model 795.75202401. I get ice build up on the back wall of the bottom freezer, centered on the right side of the ice maker.

If this is an ice build up and not a frost build up, it could be a problem during the icemaker fill cycle. The water could be splashing while filling the icemaker. If this is more of a frost, then the problem could be with the defrost cycle.

You can cycle this icemaker to check the fill cycle. To manually advance it into a cycle, press and hold the cube size selector button (I'm sending you a picture). If the water is splashing the fill tube or ice maker may need to be adjusted. The water pressure could also be too high. A technician may be needed to make these checks.
