The small hole at the back of fridge keeps icing over how do i stop this from happening?


I usually use very hot water alil at a time onto the hole drain spout, and I have a soft long flexable tube that I insert into the whole ( the condensator) to clean out the blockage and debris. can use coat hanger but be very careful as can damage the tube drain line. unplug the drain line from bottom of drip pan and place towel under it, u can also try to blow into the flexable tubing down towards the drip pan if its not solid

I HAVE A MAYTAG AUTOMATIC ELECTRONIC DEFROST CONTROL REFRIGATOR MODEL MSD2272VEB00. EVERY FEW DAYS WATER LEAKED FROM UNDER THE REFRIGERATOR ONTO THE FLOOR FROM WHAT APPEARS TO BE AT THE FRONT RIGHT SIDE...


Mostly the drip-pan can't be accessed from the front.

The drip-pan isn't.
It is in fact an evaporator. It collects the considerable amount of water from the auto defrost function and holds it until the heat from the motor and compressor can evaporate it. The water is transferred from the inside by a drain tube.

A blocked drain tube is not unusual and is generally fairly simple to clear. Often it is a stray vegetable that causes the trouble and sometimes it is a buildup of ice. If the water cannot escape a wet floor is usually the result.

Our fridge recently suffered from the same trouble. I used a plastic covered wire coat hanger to clear the drain of ice - very carefully...

Leaking water maytag plus rsw2400eam ...ice maker not hooked up. seems to be coming from freezer side can you help


When your refrig goes into auto defrost the water normally goes down a drain tube and into a drip pan under the refrig, then it evaporates. But now your drain in plugged somewhere and you will need to find it and clean it out. Hope this gets you going in the right direction.

I have an amana 18 top freezer that is about 15 years old. I am getting water on the floor of the refrigator, i have unplugged it for 24 hours, and it still does it. No water is in the pan. What do i do as...


No water in the drip pan, water in the refrigerator - this is a classic case of defrost drain issues. If your unit has a little drip cup at the back of the refrigerator (inside) you will notice a hole above it, this is the drain coming from the freezer - When defrost cycle kicks in the heating element melts the frost on the evap coils above it and water drips through the hole and inside your cup in your refrigerator - then it should drain through a tube that extends to the back of your refrgierator through a hole, from there water drips down the drain tube down the pan at the bottom above the compressor so it can later be evaporated with the heat.

What you have is a plugged drain tube - water drips in your cup and overflows down the back of your refrigerator - if you are able to remove this cup and tube, pass a long wire down the drain line to dislodge any debris or whatever is blocking the line - clean your cup and also check for any debris. Also at the back of your freezer panel look for any debris or obstruction to the drain, causing water to back up and leak elsewhere. Once all this is checked, and you put back the cup, water should flow normally and drain fast enough through the drain tube.

good luck

Water drips from freezer into refrigerator


The drain is clogged..you need to see if it has a rubber drain trap going into the back side of refrigerator. if so, twist and turn as you pull it out and clean it..replace and then check that drain is open..if no drain trap on back side of refrig..remove freezer wall and open drain from inside freezer..you need to clean out drain trough using hot water..a little messy,but effective

Mullion heater connection for Amana 84" Integrated bottom mount refer model B136CAR3 mfg P1318402W. I need to hook up the mullion heater that is under the freezer, component P/N 12401301. But I cannot find the mullion heater connection point. According to the specs it's installed in the foam and not wired from the factory and is for service purposes. The reason for this is that the water from the defrost cycle re-freezes and clogs the drain hole. Eventually the ice gets almost an inch thick and it's SOLID. The freezer drawer cannot open, so I have to thaw it all out and pry it open. I've done this dozens of times over the years! The service tech never figured it out. But with help of my boat-refer-expert brother we found the solution at the high level. Devil is in the details. According to the instructions: make a slit and peel back the white vinyl harness sleeve that goes to the water valve, pull out two wires (black and white) that aren't connected to anything (yet). Then "locate the mullion heater leads at the left side of the cabinet and connect to the back and white leads". Then Wrap vinyl sleeve with electrical tape to seal the slit. OOOOOKAY.... I found the unconnected leads in the harness that goes to the ice maker water valve. They have male bullet style plugs and clips (a little corroded) but I cannot find anywhere to connect them... Is left side of the cabinet as viewed from the front or back? The main harness is on the left rear area. And if I make the slit long enough (which is very difficult, then the wires could make it back there. If I only could find where the mullion heater's connectors come out. Of course the wiring diagram only shows the mullion wiring as optional and not connected to anything. I really do not want to lay this 500lb (at least) beast on it's side. It already fell on me and my daughter, but a countertop and pallets save us. This refer has been nothing but a pain to deal with ever since I bought in 2001. I don't want to get rid of it, since it has custom wood panels that go with our kitchen, and I fell on hard times (due to illness) and cannot afford a new one. It fixed many things on it already. Such as the problem where the relays weren't soldered properly onto the main logic board, which fixed the non-defrosting problem and the freezer fan not working. But now the drain hole plugs with ice. So I read that many freezers have a 5W to 20W heater that runs all the time to keep the hole from freezing. Especially if water gets in the insulation under the floor of the freezer. Anyway, can anyone tell me how to find the connections to the mullion heater? Is it in the outside-rear channel up back of the refer? it's pop-riveted on. Thanks! Scott
