I am being very descriptive here because I have found no help googling. My mother is currently searching old Rubbermaid bins for the manual I saved.

Model number is 106.6665000
Serial Number 6D158925
115 volts
SEARS COLDSPOT FROSTLESS 14 SPACEMASTER
Interior is Robin Egg/Teal color
Refrigerator is on top, Freezer is on Bottom
Both Doors open out towards the right side

This fridge has lasted my grandmother many years. I've recently taken over her house about two years ago.

In the past few months, there has been ice, NOT FROST but actual ice located at the bottom of the freezer. About 1-2 inches. Some of my bagged frozen vegetables that were on the bottom, I'm unable to pull out because of the ice surrounding it. I noticed this now just after vacation.
This happened once before about four months ago and we just chiseled away the ice on the bottom because it was not that bad.
I attempted to look at the parts however, I am not savvy when it comes to appliances and I also didn't want to ruin the appliance nor any food in my fridge or freezer.

Note:
We do not have an ice maker as this is a vintage refrigerator.

I did have my electricity updated about 6 months ago as per city code, not sure if this even matters.

In the end, Since this bad boy has worked so well fo so many years, I would like to keep it working and take care of it. I need guidance if anyone can help me!

The drain is blocked. During the defrost cycle the water from the melting frost on the coils needs to drain through the drain hole into the defrost pan under the machine and yours is blocked. The drain hole is located directly under the evaporator. Usually just defrosting the ice in the drain hole and cleaning the drain is enough to solve the problem. Yours also has a drain heater that may be out. Unplug the machine and use a hair dryer to defrost the drain. Run very hot water through the drain hole to clean it. A turkey baster works well for cleaning the drain.
The drain heater is no longer available.
