    I have removed some of the styrofoam and so far it appears to be working I will keep my fingers crossed thank you for all your help.

    i had a technician over yesterday and he cut away the styrofoam as well and figures this should help the water run down and not freeze in the back panel. he says this happens on most of these models

on the back wall inside the freezer unscrew the white panel and then remove the panel behind this . you should now see a tray that runs the width of the freezer with a driphole on the left-hand side which will probably be frozen with ice , chip away whatever is possible and then put boiling water on the driphole and once this is clear you should find the problem sorted , 1 other option is to turn the fridge/freezer off for several days and this will allow the ice build-up to thaw thus resolving the problem

Water is frozzen in door


The word is that many fridge manufacturers didn't insulate enough in the freezer door. The easiest fix I found for this is get some styrofoam from the walls of a cheap cooler and tape it to the inside of the freezer side door right behind where the water and ice dispenser are located. It works faster if you turn off the fridge for a couple of hours to let the water line thaw first. Then it should remain unfrozen.

Won't stay cold


The fridge depends on the freezer for cold. Now that winter is coming, the mice are playing. Pull the cover off the tubes in the back and make sure there are absolutely no openings in the back of the freezer. Mice like to travel up the tubes and chew away at the styrofoam where the tubes go into the freezer. Sometimes, they also get into the freezer and block the drain opening. When this happens, the freezer becomes ice-bound and the cold air won't circulate until the ice and dead mouse are removed. To see the drain, you will have to remove the inside walls in your freezer.

Msd2651 wont cool after being unplugged for over a year


Check for mouse damage inside the freezer walls and inside the metal tube cover on the back. Mice LOVE to chew styrofoam, especially when they aren't being disturbed.

I have a maytag fridge (freezer on bottom) the fridge is not very cold. freezer has started to get ice near the door opening in the last week.


if you see ice near the door the door muat not be closing all the way or the gasket could be ripped,ice will form where warm and cold air are mixing together,did you remove any of the shelves or baskets in the freezer or in the fridge?i've seen people clean out the fridge and the shelves weren't put back in correctly keeping the door open,check that or food packages that might be hitting the door,when the warm air gets in it usually freezes the air ducts,this is why the fridge is warm,all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,the evap fan blows the cold air from the freezer into the fridge section and then it returns through other air ducts so if warm air is getting in it will freeze up the air ducts,you can try shutting down the machine or unplug it,remove the food from the freezer and with a hair dryer hit the back inside wall of the freezer,blow the air up into the vent holes in the back wall,if you see water dripping down through the slots you have ice up in there,keep blowing the hot air up into the holes until you don't see any more water dripping,if you can remove the ice maker and remove the back inside wall of the freezer would be better.first check the freezer back wall to see if there's any frost or like snow on it,if so you could have a defrost problem,bad jazz board,this is the computer board that's behind your digital controls in the fridge section,bad defrost thermostat or heater,also do you mean the floor of the freezer has ice on it,you could have a blocked drain in the freezer.write back with more info and let me know what you find and hopefully i can help you better.

Fridge was left open last night all night long and now it will not work..please help it is not even 1 yr old.......


the air ducts are froze up,if you lost your food you can just unplug it and leave the doors open and let it melt out,or you can unplug it,remove everything out of the freezer,remove the back inside wall of the freezer and melt out all the ice that you see,then look at the right side in the back down at the bottom of the freezer there's an air duct there,melt that out and in the fridge section look to see if you can see any air ducts on the left hand side wall,blow hot air into any of the air ducts that you see,just watch out,don't keep the heat blowing on the ducts for to long,you can damage the inside of the ducts,there's styrofoam in them and the heat can damage it,good luck it might be best to just let it melt out on it's own

Freezer door was left open, now after one day freezer is not cold


you can unplug it and let it defrost on it's own or you can melt out the air ducts,you'll have to shut down the freezer,remove the shelves and remove the inside back wall of the freezer section and melt out all the ice in the right hand corner and any ice on the coil.when melting out the air ducts be careful not to damage any of the plastic or styrofoam on or inside the wall,heat up the area with a hair dryer for a couple of minutes and then move to the coil,after a minute or two go back the the air duct,when you think it's melted out enough turn the freezer back on and with your hand check to make sure the air is blowing into the fridge side,if you can feel air blowing then your all set,if there's any ice left in there the defrost will take care of it.if you have another fridge to put your food in or if the food can't be refrozen i'd just unplug it and let it melt out on it's own over night and you can clean it out while everything is out of it.let me know how you make out and good luck,hope you didn't loose that much food

I have a new fridge but it won't cool in the bottom section. There is stiroform in back of freezer. Was it supposed to be removed? WW


Good day,
You should really call the store where you purchased it, but. If there is a block of styrofoam inside the freezer compartment, it should definitely be removed. It may be blocking some of the air vents.

All items in freezer were defrosted when I opened the door this morning. Fridge is semi cold.


Hi



Some leaking water refrigerator helps....

  1. My older style Amana freezer on top refrigerator is leaking inside
  2. My refrigerator is leaking water inside
  3. My refrigerator is leaking water onto the floor
My refrigerator is leaking water inside the fridge:

Most times this is a plugged defrost drain system. The defrost heater in the freezer section melts the frost and changes it to water, this water is suppose to flow down a drain system. If this drain system is restricted or plugged the water will leak inside the refrigerator. The drain system starts in the freezer section with a tray built under the evaporator coil. The water is funneled through a small hose into a cup in the top middle of the fresh food section ( not on all models, but this is the most common way ), from there, the water is directed out the back wall to a drain hose that runs down the back of the refrigerator into a condensing tray. The heat created under the fridge makes the water evaporate and disappear. Some of the cups ( in the top back of the fresh food section ) can be removed for cleaning. A turkey baster can be used to help clean out the drain system. Fill the baster with hot water and "blast" it into the drain hose to help flush it out. A piece of wire or pipe cleaner can also be pushed into the drain hoses to help clean then out. On a S x S style of fridge the drain system is in the bottom back of the freezer section and often you will have to remove the evaporator cover to access the drain hole. You can clean this out in the same manner as previously mentioned, but because of the water leaking into the freezer instead of the fresh food section you will have to remove the ice build up to clean out the drain system. For some reason Whirlpool has found a need to "hide" the drain hose inside the walls now ( Whirlpool makes many of the Kenmore branded refrigerators ) on there top freezer refrigerators. This makes accessing the drain hose to flush it out more difficult, no cup inside the fresh food section, no hose down the outside back wall and the only access is inside the freezer section behind the back false wall and under the evaporator coils.

Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee
