Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

MAYTAG refrigerator ice forming on bottom of freezer


Answers :

More then likely you have a clogged drain. This is a pain to get to, like most bottom freezer models. You will have to remove everything out of the freezer, remove the door and racks to access the rear freezer panel. Once you get there remove it. You will probably see solid ice forming below the evaporator coil. This is ice from the unit going into a defrost cycle like it should. That is not a problem. The problem is when the ice melts and turns to water it is suppose to drain threw a hole located right below the evaporator in the center. If you have a sheet of ice formed you will need to defrost it to get to the drain hole. You can use hot water. In the industry we de-ice the drain with hot water and then blow it out with a CO2 tank(compressed air tank). This is not my favorite job because it is messy and sometimes long. That ice does not melt fast. Any questions for me go to refrigerator repair and email me anytime.

My Maytag refrigerator has condensation from the freezer running down into it, collecting on bottom of the freezer and dripping into the refrigerator portion.Both the refrigerator and freezer compartments are not keeping a cold temperature. I can hear it running, ice is still in the ice tray but as 1 big lump of ice. The model of my top-mount refrigerator is RTD 23. What should I do? Replace it or call a repairman?

My JennAir side by side is cold at the top of the freezer, like a refrigerator should be; freezing at the bottom of the freezer; and not at all cold throughout the refrigerator. All the ice in the icemaker melted, dripped down to the bottom of the freezer and refroze - forming an amazing clear ice sculpture.

Maytag fridge, side to side. Model# MSD2757AEB Bought on Sept. 1999 The bottom of the freezer forms a deep layer of ice; I remove that ice, but it keeps ddoing the same. The water drips from the bottom grill on the back wall inside the freezer, to the floor of it where it forms the ice. I would like to have an idea of the price to repair it to decide if it is worth it or not. This fridge already needed two repairs, about two years ago, that resulted in $400.

I have a Whirlpool bottom freezer refrigerator...GB2FHDXWS04. Water is leaking from somewhere and forming a layer of ice on the floor of the freezer. I shut off the water supply to the ice maker in the freezer, but water is still leaking from somewhere and forming the ice layer on the freezer floor.

Refrigerator Freezer has ice forming in the bottom inside freezer section. It appears to be leaking down the back inside compartment. The top section has an ice maker and water dispenser but I haven't had a chance to see if there's a leak there yet.
