SOURCE: maytag side by side, bottom freezer compartment had daily ice build up

I had the same problem with mine a couple of months ago. There is a drain which gets plugged. You have to remove the contents of your freezer, and then look at the back area of the freezer. The panel that's on the back is removable. Once it's removed, you will see a drain at the bottom. Mine was clogged up with debris, and was covered with ice. I poured warm water over the drain, soaked it up...did this a few times to melt the ice, then I worked at cleaning out the drain. Mine wasn't plugged too badly, I ended up having to blow air through the drain using my air compressor, to be positive that it was clear of debris. You could poke something down the drain, but it won't go very far because there is an elbow on the drain tube(visible on the backside of the unit itself)

If you get it cleaned out, it should be fine. Mines been great ever since I cleaned mine out...no more puddles on the floor.

SOURCE: maytag refrigerator MSD2454GRW shelf removal

The above answer is only HALF right. The blue clips have to be removed to lift the shelf up and pull it toward you.

To remove the clips:
1. Get a screw driver or something to get behind the clip.
2. Slide it behind the clip and slowly pry it toward you.
3. Repeat for the clip on the other side.
4. Do the above; lift the shelf slightly and pull it toward yourself.

SOURCE: Freezer cold- Fridge not. Ice build up on freezer

I really believe your adaptive defrost located inside the fresh food compartment and inside the control panel is defective. It puts your refrigerator on a timely defrost and if defective this problem you listed in your post happens. Yes we may need to also check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat but with my experience with that type of Adaptive Defrost Control is famous for its failure.
ADAPTIVE DEFROST CONTROL Part Number 61005988 You can find it located on two of my websites. Some models like yours came with a Defrost Timer. We will need just look inside the control panel and see for sure. Here is a photo of the Adaptive defrost. If you should need to contact me please send an email or try to answer here. Problem is I don't get notifications when someone comments. appliancepartsouteast@live.com
Please rate and ask me as much as you like. Thank You, Sea Breeze

Whatever you do do not run the refrigerator with the freezer fan not working. That Fan is about $70.00 depending who you get it from and easy to change. If you could find someone we could do it without calling service, that is what we are here for. See if you can find someone with a digital meter and let me know when ready, Sea Breeze

Why Icing on bottom freezer


Your drain hose in the bottom back of the freezer is clogged and Iced up and all the defrost water is staying in the freezer and building up. You need to take the freezer back panel off, remove all the ice, defrost the drain, clean, flush with hot water and test the drain line to reach the drain pan under the fridge.

Where is the defrost drain


Back behind the metal "wall" at the rear of the freezer, there is a raised "shelf" with the drain in it. Pull our freezer racks or shelves, remove a few screws, renove sheet metal "wall", and you will find it at the bottom there.

Maytag fridge RTT1900DAE - need instructions/diagram to access defrost heater, defrost timer, and defrost thermometer, so I can test them all. Haven't been able to find anything helpful using Internet...


defrost timer should be in the refrigerator side behind the temp control knob, defrost heater and thermostat should be located in the freezer compartment behind the cover plate for the fan. Just remove your shelves and you will see the screws holding the cover plate on, remove them and you will see the coils and fan. Thermostat / heater are at the bottom of the freezer coils

Fridge warm, freezer has frost on back panel & is defrosting, fans work, just changed defrost thermostat, no air is moving from freezer side to fridge side, drain pan under fridge is dry


this fan needs to run when the compressor runs,check fan blade for being jammed by ice if you have this much ice on back wall as ice will stall motor,if no fan there will be no cool air to refrige compartment also the defrost drain tray will fill with water then freeze over which in turn floods the freezer floor and refrige compartments cause it cannot drain to the pan in the bottom

Maytag MFI2268veb there was a slab of ice that we removed from the bottom freezer after removing the freezer compartments but couldnt locate the vent pls help


Hi,
Your drain pan in the back of the freezer is clogged and when you unit goes into defrost this happens. I would turn off the unit, remove the racks and shelves, remove the back wall, at the bottom is the pan, use hot water and a turkey baster or a cup to thaw the ice and clear the pan. Make sure you clean out the drain tube also. Lastly turn back on the unit, I forgot once....
Good Luck

Water is leaking from under the freezer compartment onto the top shelve of my whirlpool refrigerator


Hello,

That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment.
The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water.
The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the center

Good luck,

Gene

How can I access the defrost heater on maytag model rtd21a freezer/ref? I see only one screw in the freezer compartment. I have replaced defrost heaters in whirpool and kenmore. There are screws in those...


The defrost heater sits behind the evaporator coil. The evaporator coil lies horizontally between the freezer and refrigerator compartments. It is a lot of work to get access to the defrost heater. To do that you will need to remove the shelving in the freezer, both the refrigerator and the freezer doors and the trim pieces between the freezer and refrigerator compartments and remove the plastic liner at the bottom of the freezer. Once you removed the plastic liner, then you can see the evap coil and the heater is way in the back of the coil. Good luck.

Water drains to the bottom INSIDE the refrigerator and ice forms on the bottom of the freezer compartment


The defrost drain hole in the small tray at the back of the freezer is frozen over. Turn off the refrigerator. Remove the shelves and bins from the freezer. Carefully break up the visible ice and dispose of it.
Use a hair dryer to defrost the drain hole. It will be a slow process. Be patient.
