You probably have a bad defrost timer. This item will turn on a hot coil to melt the ice when it needs melted. If you coils are solid ice then the cold air cant travel to the refrigerator side to cool it. This air is moved with a fan and the ice blocks the movement. Melt all the ice with a hair dryer and put the cover back on u will be good for a bout a month and if defrost timer is bad it will clogg again.

Tube sometimes freezes because of minerals in it hold one droplet at a time until buildup freezes solid. Replace tube first. Water valve allowing some droplets through can also cause this. Tube first-less expensive.

Maytag side by side refrigerator ice forms at the bottom of freez


Your drain is probably plugged. Remove the back panel in the freezer and keep squirting hot water down the drain hole with a turkey baster or something similar until it clears. The drain hole is located at the bottom of the coils in the freezer section. Your refrigerator goes into defrost every 8 to 10 hrs. When this happens, it melts the ice on the coils, which in turn, runs out the hole where the drain is. If something like algae is blocking or plugging the hole, it will plug up causing water to freeze over the hole. The water has nowhere to go but out the door.

Freeze will not freeze.


I had a similar problem. The frost in the back is an indication that your coils are frozen. This could be from food packages falling out of the freezer drawers in the back and blocking the air circulation vents or maybe the freezer door was not closed completely and letting moist/humid air in and freezing the coils.
For me it was the first problem listed.I had to completely empty the freezer and Frig. and take the back panel off in the freezer. There you will see the coils and lots of ice!
1. Remove all items from the frig. and freezer and unplug frig.
2. Pull all the freezer drawers out.
3. On my GE side by side I took the light cover off and removed the bulb. There you will see two panel screws. Remove the screws.
4. Now pull out the mouldings on each side and you should be able to remove the panel.
5. Take a hair drier and completely defrost all the ice from the coils.
Be sure to keep plenty of towels handy for all the water mess. Remember to keep an eye on the drain tray in the back of the frig. and use a sponge to collect the water that will build up.
Hope this helps!.....

Your water hose that connects to the back of the freezer may be loose. Move the fridge out away and in the back make sure it is tightend.


Let me know if it helped :)

Bottom of freezer has water dripping into it


A bad freezer door seal causes condensation that freezes at the bottom of the unit. I realize you said the drip pan was full of ice, but if the drain is clogged, that will happen. If that unit has the pan at the very bottom, condensation can also contribute to this.
