sheet of ice on bottom of freezer that leaks water onto floor

We have a Kenmore Elite Trio with the freezer on the bottom. A sheet of ice forms on the bottom of the freezer and will leak out onto the floor. I have tried removing the ice but it quickly reforms. There are no drain holes in the freezer so when the ice near the door thaws it leaks water onto the kitchen floor. What can I do to keep the ice from forming and leaking out?

Ron, it is possible there could be something like styrofoam blocking the drain but if it was there from the beginning, this problem would have also started immediately. In most cases, the reason for the drain freezing is a mystery. It can be very difficult to determine, unless there is something there that can be seen. Now, if there is styrofoam blocking the drain, it's possible it may not be repairable. However, a technician will be required to check it, to make this type of determination. I hope this will help you.
