SOURCE: sometimes the refidgerator freezes and then leaks

Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curtain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you have any other question. Mike

My bottom drawer of my 3 year old Maytag fridge is freezing up all the items I put in it. The fridge is on its lowest setting. What's up?


You mentioned that the fridge is at its lowest settings, try up it a bit so it doesn't freeze up your items.

Freezes


Your defrost system has gone out and the unit freezes up because there's no way to tell the unit to defrost. Call us with brand and model number and we'll be sure to get the right parts out to you asap. Hope this answers your question.

check for ice build up on back wall of freezer if you have ice on wall you have a defrost failure it is very common the vent clogs and cool air cant get to fridge sectiondepending on modelyou have either an electronic defrost control or you have a defrost timer and limiter both systems have common heaters either controlled by an adc board or timer and limiter if you have no ice build up thacommon repairn its most likely a bad evaperator fan relatively
