SOURCE: My Jennair Side by side has ice in freezer bottom and leaks water

This sounds like the defrost drain line is clogged and frozen. Every 8-12 hours the defrost cycle melts the ice buildup on the coils and is supposed to drain out to the pan under the fridge. Once this is blocked or freezes up the next cycles continue to put liquid water over the existing ice which then freezes, etc. till finall the area is frozen enough for water to find it's way out the door seals. You will need to take the back interior panel off the freezer side to view the coils and drain line. It will take lots of hot water to melt the ice in the drain area and the drain line in order to run a cleaning tube (basically a piece of 1/4" tubing like the water line tubing a couple feet long that you can force down the drain to make sure it's not plugged). Once you push the cleaning tube down the drain and can see it come out the other end in the drip tray pull it back out and pour hot water down it once more to watch that it drains fast. That should do it!

SOURCE: Bottom of Maytag Freezer Ices Up

I just had the Maytag repair man out and he wanted to replace to parts after defrosting the freezer. Over $300. He did not have the parts with him. Soooo... I am now in the process of using a hair dryer, even tough it is 107 here today. Ice was totally covering the coils under the back panel in the freezer. Easy to take out. Just remove the shelves and you will see it. If you don't totally get all the ice out it will build up even faster. He claims this will give us 2 weeks or so while the parts on on order. I now have all the ice I can see removed, I just hope it is out of the tube above the coils. I have all my food, lots of good steaks, I want to put back in the freezer. The original problem seemed to be the refrigerator was not working but the freezer seemed to be. Well, it just faked me out because it was just a fan or ?? I heard in the freezer. Wish me luck...MJ

SOURCE: Water leaking from bottom of freezer door, and ice

The defrost drain line in the freezer has frozen closed. Turn off the fridge. Remove the freezer bins. Use a hair dryer to thaw the drain hole on the bottom rear shelf of the freezer.

P.S. Your fridge is on recall from Maytag for a defective start relay.

My maytag bottom freezer keeps creating the large puddle causing this large piece of ice at the bottom and it starts to leak. Now the freezer has icesickles. Where is the water coming from?


Check defrost sensor. Clean de rotor panel from the inside and the one outside should be full of dirt and the air is not going thrue that is why is condensation inside your freezer. Just blow the radiator from dust and leave the freezer one day unplugged so it will melt all the ice from the inside.

Ice in the bottom of the freezer


Check the door gasket for a leak. Air entering past the gasket will form ice.

Leaking water into freezer


Either your icemaker is leaking, or the more likely would be your defrost drain is clogged with ice. If you have another fridge to keep your food in, you can generally clear it by defrosting it. (36 hours off WITH DOORS OPEN). If you don't have the luxury of being able to turn it off, then you will need to find the drain. It all depends n your fridge, but it will be in the freezer, at the bottom, in the center. You will see the ice sheet covering it. The drain will be at the bottom of that.

Water leaked from below refridgerator. Drip pan was not full. where woudl water come form and why? Unit is not eve 1 year old. mdel # KSCS 25 FVss


The evaporator coil is in the freezer. When it goes into defrost, that water should go down a drain in the freezer into the drain pan. Open the freezer door and see if there is any ice in the very bottom of the freezer compartment. If so, then the drain may be clogged and will have to be cleared. It is necessary to remove all of the racks and baskets to get to the sheet metal that covers the coil. Remove that panel to get to the evap coil and look below it to find the drain. It may be necessary to use a hair dryer to CAREFULLY melt any ice. Be careful not to melt the plastic liner. When you think you have the drain cleared, check it with a large glass of hot water.
If there is no ice in the bottom of the freezer, take the grill off the bottom of the fridge to see if there are any leaks under the fridge.
Could also be a pin hole leak in the water supply line to the fridge.

There is a large sheet of ice accumulating on the bottom of the freezer. The ice maker is in the off .


Your defrost drain hole is frozen over. Turn the fridge off. Remove the lower bin. Take a hammer and carefully break the ice sheet to remove it. Use a hair dryer to defrost the drain line in the rear of the freezer just below the back panel. The drain line is up on the back inside the drain pan,not under the ice you will be breaking in the bottom.

Too much water in amana bottom freezer ice maker


Try closing the valve partially on the incoming water to the icemaker. Close it to a trickle. Water is fed to the icemaker by a short timer. Too much water pressure means too much water. If this helps it but not solve it, get the spec sheet for the icemaker and adjust to make cubes smaller. This shortens the timer. If no joy, you may need to replace icemaker module.
