Maytag msd2454gr back in Oct of 2010 I had my start relay kit replaced part #12002784. Since then I have had an accumulation of ice build-up on the bottom floor of the feezer. On numberous occations I have...
is everything running fine except for the blocked drain?just melting out the ice isn't good enough,you have to clear the block in the drain.i use a steemer to blow out the drain but if you don't have one you can try a turkey baster to blow through the drain,when you think the drain is clear get hot water and pour it into the hole,if it drains down the hole then you know it's clear.heat it up with the hair dryer,then stick the baster into the hole with some hot water in it and squeeze the top to push the water through the hole,then check it by pouring hot water down the drain hole,if it drains down the hole you're done.now if the fridge is warm and freezer is getting warm too then you also have a defrost problem,bad defrost thermostat,heater, or timer.if you pull off the back inside wall of the freezer again but first open the fridge door,up in the top panel where the controls are and on the right side you'll see a hole,the defrost timer is there,if you turn it with a screw driver slowly,you'll hear the evap fan shut off and by doing this you manually advanced it into defrost,now when you look at the evap. coil there's a heater,you have a calrod heater in your machine,it's a black rod that heats up and melts the ice off of the coil when in defrost,if that doesn't heat up you need to replace it,that also comes with the thermostat connected to it part number 61006116 and it's around 50 dollars.but this is only if your machine isn't staying cold enough and you have to keep melting the ice off of the coil by hand,if not then all you have to do is clear the drain.hope this helps you out,sorry for your loss,hang in there hopefully things will get better for you.
