Water in Freezer bottom

I have a side by side maytag refrigerator hat is 3 years old and it is collecting water in the bottom of the freezer. The only thing I could find was to unclog the drain tube because it is frozen over. I did this about 6 times and I still get the frozen tube and water. It appears to be putting off to much water and it freezes over the tube and spills onto the freezer floor. Thanks, Ryan

I did the Drano as well as baking powder/vinegar mixes with water. What finally got it free was taking a plastic step inflatable pump thing and pushing some air into it.

Water collecting inside fridge, under meat drawer

Yes most responses are the freezer drain even if it is in the bottom freezer. If the drain is blocked water will build up anywhere inside your refrigerator only because it has no place to go during the defrost. Defective door seals can also can make the problem much worse.

We have the same issue on our Maytag Side by Side - MSD2734GE. Empty the freezer. At the back of the freezer are two panels in the back. It is only necessary to remove 3 screws. The first 2 screws hold on the very bottom panel. Remove the back panels and look at the drain located at the bottom. You will notice a thin piece of metal covering a drain hole. Remove the screw holding the metal in place. Then remove the ice build up around the drain hole.

Water collects at bottom/Ice forms in top


The defrost drain is located just under the cooling coils in the back of the freezer. You will need to unload the food and remove the shelves from the freezer. Take the back panel off from inside the freezer and you will see a hole just below the coils. Flush it with hot water using a turkey baster or small hose. See the link below for more details.

There is water collecting at the bottom of the Freezer. It is coming out of the vent area inside the Freezer near the bottom. Can you help identify?

Check the defrost drain at the bottom rear of the freezer. If the drain is clogged or frozen, the water has to go somewhere during defrost.

Water in bottom of refrigerator coming from freezer (not really sure of the exact model as I'm not home to double check).

If water appears on the floor in front of the refrigerator once or twice a day, it could be due to a clog in the defrost drain tube. The usual evidence of a clogged drain in a side-by-side refrigerator is ice under the bottom basket in the freezer compartment, in addition to a puddle of water on the floor. Try watching the YouTube videos like this one:

Water colecting on floor of freezer in fridge-freezer (Hoover floorstanding model 3 years old). I can not find a drain hole - water apears to be running down from cabinet behind bottom drawer.

The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.
