water is dripping down from the cooler

Hello everyone, I have the Samsung where the freezer is at the bottom With a large drawer that pulls in and out. So I have the problem also where water is dripping down from the cooler evaporator and it freezes causing the door to open and close very hard because the bottom of the door is rubbing on the ice. So uneasy way to remove the ice from the bottom is you take two bath towels and submerge them in hot water and ring out most of the water and put one of them out on top of the ice on the bottom of the freezer let them sit for a while. As the first is thawing out the ice you like in the second tall hot and ringing out most a lot of that one. Alternate the towels about four or five times and it will thaw the sheet of ice and the whole she device will slide out or you can break it in half to make it easier to get out. Let me know if this works for anyone it works great for me its really fast but I'm still working on finding out what causes this so it won't happen again but about every 2 to 3 weeks I have to do this. Let me know if it works for anybody,

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I can see how your idea works with the dry Towel although it needs to have some time to melt the otherwise when you use the screwdriver to hit the ice it doesn't want to come loose from the plastic so either you leave the door open for a while to let that ice melt away from the plastic or you can use a hot towel and still use your screwdriver method as well using the wrong end of the screwdriver and hitting nice to crack it loose.

It will break free easier if it is dry. When you tap the ice, cracks develop and the ice will come loose in big chunks. I lay a towel on the floor and slide the ice into the towel. There's no dripping water or mess.

Stephen Forbes-There is an easier way to remove that ice without all the mess. Place a DRY towel on the ice, hold the wrong end of a screwdriver and tap the handle a few times on the towel and the ice will break itself free and come out in several big pieces.

No mess no damage no time!
