You may have a blocked freezer drain tube, so when the freezer is in the defrost mode the condensed water cannot flow out and remains in the freezer to be refrozen.

Here is an image taken from this supplier of the part. (Click on the case parts diagram) to get an idea of its' location

This explanation is taken from the same suppliers website:

As part of the refrigerator's defrost cycle, the defrost drain tube transfers condensate from the evaporator drip tray that's under the evaporator to the drain pan in the machine compartment next to the compressor, where the water evaporates. If the evaporator drip tray or top of the drain tube freezes, the condensate water can overflow into the freezer or the refrigerator compartment. This repair involves thawing that drain area so that the condensate properly flows through the defrost drain tube and into the drain pan next to the compressor.

Hopefully this is of some help
