Hi, You can use a hair dryer to thaw the inlet tube out. Some mofeld will aloow you to remove the inlet tube from behind the refrigerator. If yours can be removed, this would be the easiest way.
If the tube plugs up again, you should replace the inlet valve. Thhey sometimes will drip a little causing the inlet tube to freeze.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: Water on floor from freezer side of Maytag side by side unit.

Yes I just had that happen to me. An appliance guy came over for my stove and I asked him if he could tell me why I wake up everyday to a puddle. He told me to take the baskets out unscrew the three screws and pull the panel off, then pour some hot water in it and use a turkey baster to blast the drain hole with. It worked. Sears repair man couldn't even figure that out when it was under warranty. Took me 15 minutes. Good Luck

This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer

Occasional puddle of water on the floor that is coming from the freezer area


All refrigerators have a drain. This is for when your unit goes into a defrost mode. You do not have to empty your drain pan because the water evaporates by the heat of the compressor. If you have a side by side unit. Open your freezer door and remove the lower drawer down by your feet. If it is frozen in there by ice or if when you remove it there is ice on the bottom. It is your drain that is clogged. Any other questions. You can click contact Apco Now..

that hold 2 basket glides in place at left and right

sides of compartment.

4. If unit has no icemaker pry with flatblade icemaker

connection cover. Remove cover.

5. Remove hex head screws that hold back panel and

Defrost Terminator (Thermostat)

1. Terminator is fastened to evaporator tubing with a

2. Snap terminator off tubing and cut wires to terminator.

That is word for word.

See parts list diagram here:

This may help with screws but the defrost thermostat is item 32 and not shown on the diagram. Once you hav ethe access panel off loof fok the thermostat. It will have 2 wires and tough metal clip on it.

Our Electrolux drawers (on tracks) are removed by pinching the small tabs together whilst pulling up on the emptied drawers; this is done with the drawers in the open position - one side, then the other.

Our side by side electrolux refrigerator will not disperse cubed ice, only crushed. everything else works fine. Model number PRLS267ZAB8


Pull the ice drawer out and look for the small, metal "arm" that sticks out of the back of the outside of the drawer. Empty all the ice out and make sure this arm swivels freely. Sometimes it can get stuck.

MY Maytag Wide by Side freezes in the produce drawers.


When a unit freezes in the lower drawers this is usually due to a thermistor which is not functioning properly. If you can provide your model number I can try to locate your schematic to your unit showing the thermistor that you would replace to alleviate this issue. I will await your reply as to the complete model number of your unit.
p.s if you had ice up the top of the unit as well then you would look at the damper door otherwise known as the diffuser door in some units or the control for the door as the problem area in your unit.
Thank you,
Rick
