  1. Damaged drain pan
If your drain pan has holes or cracks it will also need to be replaced.
  1. Clogged drain
If you experience any clogged drains, they must also be unclogged or replace. If you experience this at the ceiling of your unit it can be attributed to a clog in the freezer section. Remove the divider and let the insulation thaw out and dry.

Gladiator Freezerator wont stay frozen in the bottom portion. It will go to temp when temp is mved, but then start to warm up. Why?


If the bottom freezer section of the Gladiator Freezerator is thawing out the usual cause is from the coils in the back of the top refrigerator section being iced up. The ice blockage prevents the fan from circulating cold air into the bottom freezer section. These units have a design flaw due to the defrost drain freezing up preventing water from draining out from under the coil. The long-term solution is to remove the back wall of the refrigerator section to get to the coil, thoroughly defrost the coil making sure the drain tube is clear, then wrap a couple turns of #12 or #14 copper house wire around the bottom of the defrost heater element and run it a few inches into the drain tube. Advise unplugging the unit when you do this.

I've had this fix on my Gladiator for a couple years and it has been working perfectly ever since. The freezer stays a constant 0 degrees F and no more thawed out food.

If you hear the motor sound during drain cycle then it is likely the drain hose is cracked and pump cannot generate enough pressure to empty the drawer. You will have to find the cracked portion of the hose and replace it. It appears the bottom drawer is operating properly.

Maytag MSD 2432GR making sheets of ice on sides and bottom of freezer


If the water is showing on the freezer side, more than likely you have a clogged drain. This occurs when the machine goes into defrost and the melted ice somehow is prevented from draining and therefor refreezing and blocking the drain for the next defrost cycle. The best way to resolve this is to unplug the machine for atleast 24-48 hours to let all ice melt. If thats not an option that you want to use the actual repair method would be to 1) unplug the machine 2) empty everything out of the freezer so you'll have room to work 3) take all the shelving and baskets out 4) locate the screws on the rear wall inside the freezer and remove them 5) take the back panel off exposing the evaporator coils ( the aluminum ) 6) directly below the coils is a trough of sorts and the drain is usually in the middle and runs out the bottom, remove the ice by carefully chipping it out or by using a hair dryer or hot water. 7) once all the ice is gone, the drain is visible and water can flow smnoothly down the drain dry the area and reassemble.
In maytag refrigerators you should also pull the machine out away from the wall and remove the lower portion covering the compressor, etc. Locate where the drain line comes out and look at the very end of it. If there is a rubber piece, sort of like a triangle shaped cap, there reach in and remove it. This is either the reason your having the problem or will be the cause of the same problem later on.

Where is the drain located in the amana refrigerator that empties the water into the bottom drain pan? ModelTC20E-L Amana frigerator


Good day,
In the freezer compartment, after you remove the rear panel, you will see the cooling (evaporator) coil. There is an aluminum pan directly below the coil. The drain hole would be obvious unless it is iced over, in which case you would need to melt the ice out.

It is connected to the drain hose which you can see by removing the back bottom cover of the machine that houses the compressor. If open and working properly, the hose carries the water to the drain pan which allowsit to evaporate.

If the freezer has an ice maker, it will have to be removed first. In addition any support brackets if they prevent the removal of the rear panel.

Freezer Coils icing over


Drain clogged.

Directly below the coils is the drain. You may have to use a hair dryer to remove the Ice so you can see the drain hole but it's there. Once you unclog the drain all that water should go down and into a plastic pan under the Ref. Heat from the compressor will evaporate the water so, you should never have to empty this pan.
