Maytag refrigerator

Your unit has several thermostats in it. The defrost thermostat is located in the freezer section usually close to the evaporator coil. Your freezer thermostat is located there also. Some refrigerators have several thermostat located in the fresh food side. One close to the control in the upper portion; some have one down by the vegtable bins. And the top end models even have a thermostat in the butter compartment. Without the model number it is hard to tell what is your case.

Maytag mtb2156de freezer leaking through the top of the frig. The freezer is keeping things frozen, but water is running onto the floor.


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

Model Maytag MTB2156DE: Was in storage for 1 year. hooked up now and icemaker does not make ice. Freezer does not seem to be as cold as it should be. Not sure if I have a problem with the solonoid at...

Good day,
Check the freezer temperature. If it is much above 10 degrees then the ice maker will lock out. That is by design.
If it is too warm freezer temperature, check to see if you can hear the fan running in the freezer compartment. If it checks O.K. the go to the bottom rear of the machine and see if the condenser cooling fan is running. Both have a tendency to freeze up after extended off periods. Sometimes, just flicking the blade will get them going. If not, the faulty one must be replaced.
If everything is running and has been for 24 hours or more, then yes, a lose of refrigerant is possible, and you will need the services of a trained service tech.

I would ignore the ice maker problem, until the freezer temperature issue is resolved, since if the machine is over 5 years of age, the factory warranty has expired leaving you with a pricey problem.

Freezer frosts up and will not defrost itself anymore. Do I need a new defrost timer and/or thermostat? If so, where is the timer/thermostat located in the refrigerator?

It could also have a bad defrost heater. The heater and defrost thermostat are located mounted on the evaporator coil and the timer is usually mounted in the control panel with the control thermostat or in the compressor compartment.

Maytag, side by side refrigerator stopped working

Check the thermostat which is located in the top left hand coner of the refrigerator. Also check the relay on the compressor to make sure it is not staying open all the time. Also there has been a huge recall on Maytag side by side refridgerators made between 2001 and 2005. I would also try calling Maytag and get the problem fixed by them by recall
