795.72063.112 keeps accumulating ice in the freezer. Keep defrosting it but it continues. How do I find the problem and fix it once and for all.

This could be a lot of things. The most common cause of this is an air leak in the seals. To check the seals take a dollar bill and close the door on it leaving a little stick out and see how hard it is to pull out. There should be some resistance to pulling it out of the door. Then move it up and try again. Check all the doors to see if they are fitting tight. Any air leaks into the unit can bring moisture and then the moisture condenses and freezes near the evaporator coils. The other thing is a water leak from the ice maker or water lines. Last but not least is the defrost system. If there is an obstruction in the drain try that is under the evaporator coils then the unit is defrosting like it is supposed to but the water has no place to go and is running over the tray and refreezing on the walls of the freezer.

My freezer door wont open, feels locked on one side. water is leaking underneath

Just answered a similar question about this but with the water leaking in this one, I think the door got wedged open slightly and you now have an excessive ice buildup on the inside of the freezer causing the door to stick from the ice buildup. You may need to pull hard to break loose the ice and when you get the door open clean all excessive ice from around the door seal area. Packages inside may need to be re- arranged so door closed properly.

My Frigidaire leaks water on the freezer side. A puddle appears every day on the floor in the front of the freezer. Inside the freezer on the bottom there is ice buildup. I think a drain must not be...

The defrost water is supposed to drain through a tube located in the bottom rear and flow into the flimsy plastic evaporation tray located inside the bottom trim panel. The tube may be clogged. The tray may be cracked or broken.

Freezer leaks water even with ice maker water turned off

The only water that can come out of the freezer if the water is turned off is defrosted ice that cannot go to the tray at the bottom of the machine since the drain hole is blocked. See if any water is in the tray under the machine. Probably dry as a bone. If so carefully remove the back panel in the freezer, after you have defrosted some of the ice buildup. If you find lots of Ice the defrost circuit isn't working. If you find frosty ice the circuit may be OK but the drain blocked. You MUST melt ALL ice on the coils, and in the drain pan below the coils. Use a turkey baster to shoot hot water into the drain hole until it is free of ice and water flows freely into pan below. Find the defrost thermostat and turn it manually with a screwdriver and see if the defrost heater gets hot (be careful, gets very hot) timer should turn very slowly when powered. If not hot but timer turns on its own the defrost thermostat is probably defective.

Small amount of water leaks from the front of my Samsung R2630SH.

I found out that there is a plastic panel that cools three draws inside the refrigerator. Behind the plastic panel there is an evaporator (coolant childer) that catches the condensation of repeatedly opening and closing the refrigerator door that turns into thick ice. Because of condensation, ice buildup in such a way that the ice pushes the middle draw out causing the door to open. In turn depending on how long the door stays open, melts the ice and the water leaks under the bottom draw out on either side of the front refrigerator door. Also, there is a drain plug that is also iced closed. To solve that problems, the unplug the refrig, put towel under the refrig, removed the panel (unplugging the wires and removing screws) and took a hair blow dryer to melt the ice. Oh, by the way, I used to blow dryer to melt the ice from the panel before I could remove the panel. That job took all day. I removed all the ice and reassembled the panel and replace the drawers. To my amazing, no more leaks and the water dispenser worked for two days and quit. I believed the water tank (plastic container in front of the panel has frooze again. By the way the ice maker did not work after removing the ice.

My Jennair Side by side has ice in freezer bottom and leaks water

This sounds like the defrost drain line is clogged and frozen. Every 8-12 hours the defrost cycle melts the ice buildup on the coils and is supposed to drain out to the pan under the fridge. Once this is blocked or freezes up the next cycles continue to put liquid water over the existing ice which then freezes, etc. till finall the area is frozen enough for water to find it's way out the door seals. You will need to take the back interior panel off the freezer side to view the coils and drain line. It will take lots of hot water to melt the ice in the drain area and the drain line in order to run a cleaning tube (basically a piece of 1/4" tubing like the water line tubing a couple feet long that you can force down the drain to make sure it's not plugged). Once you push the cleaning tube down the drain and can see it come out the other end in the drip tray pull it back out and pour hot water down it once more to watch that it drains fast. That should do it!
