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

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

sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine

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.
