I have a Maytag 3 door ,freezer on the bottom, for the last 3 years every few weeks the fridge looses its coldness and the freezer is ice cold also it it always on temperature 1, so I have to unplug it...


Either, the defrost timmer has had it, or the freezer defrost element has failed, the element is the most common cause of this type of problem. You have ice build-up in the freezer cores because it cant defrost, all frostfree units rely on cold air from the freezer to blow into the fridge, if the freezer cores become blocked, air can not pass to the fridge side. I bet you, if you left the unit off for 2 days to defrost totally,,,,with the doors open...then plugged it back in, it would work like new for 2 weeks.
Timmer or defrost element needs to be replaced...do not fall for the trick that the fridge mech. has to take it away, you tell him that this is the problem and you will save yourself ALOT of cash.

Dont forget to vote for the solution...regards Russ

Leaking water on floor


The defrost drain is most likely frozen or clogged. I put together some instructions on clearing this for refrigerator/freezers and it applies the same to all freezers with drains. Take a look and let me know if you have questions.

Same as post in Dec 09, I have water freezing at the bottom of my frostfree upright freezer (whirlpool).


Could be the drain is blocked, Otherwise the water would drain away and evaporate from the compressor unit.

Frost buildup around the inside top of the door of an upright Frigidaire Commerical Frostfree Freezer Mod# FFU20IC8Cw2


This happens when your thermistor gets frozen along with the coils or there is a clogging of the freezer drain which causes Ice to build up and spread to the system. Another issue is that your thermistor may be faulty, telling the system inaccurate temperature. Incorrect freon pressure can also be a cause. I would advise first to have the ice melted by letting the unit stay unplugged and have it cleaned while at it.

My Bosch frostfree fridge freezer keeps icing up!


My Bosch Frost Free Fridge Freezer did the same thing - Ice forming in the bottom of the freezer area after a few days.

It was caused by a blocked drain pipe - When the freezer does the de-frosting cycle, the melted ice drips into a tray and tehn runs into a dish on top of teh compressor, through a pipe.

If this pipe gets blocked, the de frosted ice overflows from the tray and overflows into the bottom of the freezer and then re-freezes !

To fix, pull the freezer away form the wall, locate the pipe that runs to the dish on top of the compressor and blow through it - This should clear it. Alternatively, from inside the freezer compartment, pull off the cover at the back, but the clips holding it on will probably break off, as mine did ! You can sort of push the cover back on and re-fit the food draws.
