    Leaking is located to the right side, I can see some small holes (4 or 5) where I think the water is leaking.

Hi, katrina, I just called Maytag service las weekend, my city is always dry, but these days there's a lot of rain and humidity is everywhere. The technical guy went to my house and told me that behaviour is "normal" due to the rains and humidity. I know this not a solution, but it seems to be a reasonable answer.

I assume a frost-free type.
take back panel off inside freezer and you will see a drain tray at the bottom with a drain hole in the middle. this is blocked usually with ice. melt ice away with a hairdryer and follow up with hot water till water flows away freely

Water leaking into bottom of refrigerator section


Make sure you dry everything in the freezer when you have the door open and remove ice. It won't be a leak it will simply be the warm air inside the freezer that has turned into condensation. Double check the seal around the door to see if it curled up as that could be letting warm in and cold out giving same results.

Ice Maker leaks water inside the freezer


I see you said you looked and the water valve is off but the only that I know of this happening is a defective water control valve. Like a dripping faucet that when off slowly drips until the ice forms and then one the ice maker dumps ice and tries to refill the water goes in every direction. Unplug water valve to confirm what I am saying, Tell me if it continues to leak. Sea Breeze

Water leaking and ice in bottom shelf of freezer


Chances are you have a bad seal around the door if it's leaking from the inside which causes the ice to form as well, or if it's leaking from under the freezer you lave a bad heating element that evaporates the water collected in the pan under the freezer or you have a clogged hose that goes to the pan under the freezer which also causes the ice to form because the water has no place to go. Defrost and try to find a way to blow out the hose that goes from your freezer to the pan under the freezer and that should take care of your problem.

Water leak in freezer, build up of ice at the base


Remove the ice maker and fill it with water to see if it is leaking. Or check the pipe that fills the ice maker to see if it leaks or is not positioned correctly. Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Roper Refrigerator, top freezer leaking water into refrigerator


This is usually caused by a plugged freezer drain. The back wall (or floor) of the freezer may come out to access the drain. Clear out anything visible and run a stiff wire thru it. Test with a cup of water. Hope this helps!

Roper Refrigerator, top freezer leaking water into refrigerator


Hi I reckon you gave either an ice block in the defrost drain system or a blockage caused by loose food bits. You can clear the ice block if you keep the fridge off for 24 hours leaving both doors open. If you have a small table fan to circulate warm room air you could speed up the process.

The second type of block with food bits may need you to open the internal rear panel of the fridge and push through a stiff wire to clear the blockage.
