Question about Refrigerators
Having thermostat problems in my Maytag fridge/bottom freezer. Pulled the fridge out and vacuumed everything. This am the copper coil on the back outside is leaking water drop by drop. The coil is not hot/ cold. Could the seal be broken or need tightening? It is right where the copper goes into the fridge. Help as my floor is now ruined.
The copper coil on the back comes from the compressor and is what makes the fridge cold but it is filled with gas. They can condensate and drip water but this isn't usually enough to notice, or cause damage. I would actually suggest looking again to check the exact source of the water. Be aware that some water from the defrost cycle is supposed to drip into the evaporator tray at the back.

SOURCE: Defrost Problem
there is a drain in the middle of the defrost water collector and it is probably blocked - usually with ice. dry ot the tray and put very hot water in to melt the ice. you may have to do several times. do this until water flows away freely

If you looked at the back section of the freezer (inside) and found ice then you need to completely defrost the fridge freezer. What you are describing is a frozen evaporator and the freezer needs airflow to work properly. If the unit starts behaving normally after defrosting then you need to monitor it closely as they will normally start playing up again after 2-3 weeks. If it does fail again then you probably have a defrost problem normally the defrost heater but can also be the defrost timer o defrost sensor. If it fails to reach temp then I would suggest contacting a decent repair guy who should be able to diagnose which one within a reasonable time. I would recommend defrosting first though because the same symptoms can happen when a door is left ajar. Hope the above is of some help.

It sounds like your ice maker is leaking.
If you are able, try opening up the ice maker for a visual inspection.
just remember to unplug first.
Apparently there is a leak somewhere.
Sometimes ice makers will over flow if the float gets stuck or a connection has come loose.
If you cannot work on it yourself, then I suggest looking up a service technician on the Fixya website.

Generally speaking it is the refrigerator control that controls the compressor operation. Refrigerator is cooled by air from the freezer. When the refrigerator gets down to its designed temperature it shuts off the compressor. The freezer control determines how much air is allowed to flow into the refrigerator section and there-by controls the freezer temperature.

Your timer for the automatic defrost is defective. Replace it. If you thawed out the back of the freezer, this could be good for 3-7 days and it will freeze up again. I had the same trouble.
