Ref. Whirlpool model ED25DQ/ water in meat drawer

24 hours ago I turned the refergerator temp down because the
food on the door wasn't cold.It is set on a 3.

We have a meat storage drawer at bottom that I only put fruit in
it has a seperate control I set on COLD. Now I have a puddle of water
in the Meat/Fruit drawer. What do you suggest?

You seem to have conflicting information here.
If you turn the therostat DOWN it is setting it to defrost that will not help the food in the door to get cold it gets it warmer. The water is possibly from the fridge being in defrost mode and the tube that usually direcfts it to a tray beneath the fridge to waste tray that evaporates the water from the heater coil has somehow been directed back into the crisper draw.

tfry turning the fridge to colder not warmer. Hope i interpreted this correctly, language is a wonderful tool when facial expression and visuals are available otherwise its a handicap

The cold control needs replacing. Thats the knob with the numbers that turn the Ref OFF and ON.
What I do is call my local Appliance Parts Store with my model no. They are extremely helpful .
Get freezer and ref thermometer. Ref is probably too cold.
Freezer should be 0 to 10 degrees. Ref 33 to 35

NOT MAKING ICE JUST HOOKED UP WATER LINE AND TURNED ON TWO HOURS AGO


if you have just purchased the ref. and hooked it up it will take 24 hours for the ref. to get to correct temp.Plus the ice maker wont start to work until the freezer temp gets to 15 degrees.if the ref. has been in use then check the power button on the ice maker itself and make sure the power is on.

Ice/water is forming in the non freezer sections,,,dripping into the meat, veg, etc. drawers. Is it just a cheap machine and there is nothing I can do about it?


Turn it off for 24 hours, pull all food out of course. When you turn it back on keep your cold control no higher then 3. Sounds like your drain froze. If problem

Maytag fridge s-by-s freezes alot of the stuff at the back and lower vege drawer


Actually this seems about right. The air flow in the fridge is usually from the back top of the fridge. That will be the cold spot then the air sinks down to the bottom and then recycles back into the freezer comp. to get cold again. Door shelf is usually warmer than the rest. As with most units, it takes some understanding of the air circulation pattern in order to find the sweet spots for dairy products and meat, veggies, etc. Check to see if there are slider adjustments on the drawers for temp or humidity, etc. Also make sure there are not parts missing from the inside of the fridge. Sometime a part that appears to only be a small plastic item gets broken over time and never replaced when it could actually be very important to air circulation. I recommend getting a small floating aquarium thermometer and setting it in a glass of water in order to get the "true" temp. of the products not just the air temp of the fridge. Put the glass in different locations over a weeks period to record what the temps are like in different areas of the fridge so you can make a "map" of the cold spots, etc. Leave the thermometer in for about 12 hours before you record the temps for that location. I think you will find the answers you need in order to place your food more effieciently in the fridge. As for summer days, the unit will have to work harder in warm weather to cool than it does in the winter months of course but there is always a concern that you are not cooling 100%. The way to check that is to let the unit run for several hours (turn the temps down so it runs for at least an hour solid) then you would have to pull the whole interior rear freezer panel off the back to view the cooling coils and make sure they are fully frosted across the whole coil surface. If they are iced up only in a few inches of coils then you likely have leaked out the liquid refrigerant over the years and there's not enough to cool a full 100% of its capacity. And your complaints are the same with even brand new models... it's about 60% of our service calls (not cooling properly or freezing food).
