    I had a feeling it may be a blocked tube or something like that. This fridge is 6 years old. Had defrost problems exactly one year ago. Saw the applaince repair guy take the panel out and defrost with hair dryer. When that problem happened it turned out to be an issue with the electronic board that controls the defrost operation which is located in the frige part. I will do as suggested for this issue and hope that this will be a one time fix and not have to do this again................thanks for the help.

    I've also been experiencing the same problems with my MSD2756GES
    - excessive ice build-up on the bottom of the freezer to the point
    where the bottom basket is frozen in place. From time to time, the
    refrig. seems like it's trying to correct the problem, some of the ice
    melts out through the door gasket and onto the floor with no real
    improvement - ice continues to build-up. To make matters worse, I just
    received a letter from Maytag stating that my refrigerator model is
    part of a recall of 1.6million refrigerators due to possible
    overheating of compressor causing fire. Maytag has contracted an
    authorized repair agent to visit my home in a week to make recall
    repairs. Have experienced nothing but problems with the refrig. since I
    purchased my home 18 months ago. Also experiencing problems with
    buttons that select between crushed ice and cubed ice and lighting
    inside refrig. Maytag claims no responsibility as I've tried to get
    them to be responsible for problems. Any help/direction would be
    appreciated...

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

I have the same model and the drain was plugged from day one, I had to force the drain open by sticking a thin wire down the drain hole, 4 years later and I'm having issues with the defrost mechanism. I would like to reapir by myself if I can figure out how to get the panel over the temp controls off the top of the fridge and what the part is

Why do I have a puddle under my fridge every couple days but no sign of a drip or leak?


If it is an automatic defrost fridge the it will have a hose draining down into a container under the fridge, make sure it is draining where it should and has,not become dislodged. Some have a small tray with either pipes inside it or an electric heater. Some have a container sitting on top of the compressor, both of these are used to evaporate the water.
check to make sure there are no holes in the water catcher.
if you have an electric heater that is not functioning then the container will be already full of water and at each defrost cycle will overflow onto the floor.

Maytag mbf2258xeq leaks but it's not connected to a water line. Where's the water coming from?


water is coming from condensation from the compressor coil. usually this will evaporate fast enough to not puddle on the floor. check the plastic line running down the back of the fridge to see that it's not broken or pulled out. while you have the fridge out, clean the coil by blowing it out with compressed air and clean the pan under the compressor as best you can. Hope this helps

I( find a puddle of water on floor at front left hand corner on freezer side..I took the freezer drawer out and found ice build up under it ,could this cause my problem.. this happened about every 24 hours...


The problem with your refrigertor is that the defrost drain is plugged up. After you get the ice buildup out of the freezer section you will have to locate the drain system. It is in the back of the freezer at the very bottom.It needs to be cleaned out. Hope this at least leads you in the right direction.

Maytag fridge has constant running water sound


you hear a constant running water sound? look in your manual under "normal operating sounds". it explains all of the sounds. it sounds like you're hearing the refrigerant going thru your evap. coil located behind the rear frzr panel. you unit goes into the defrost cycle roughly every 8hrs and water drip down into the condensate pan un the refrig.
