Question about Maytag Refrigerators
Water dripping onto floor form my refigerator. I believe it's from the freezer. I see consensation beaded up along the sides of the door. I also noticed on the underside of the freezer door, a small gap in the seal around the freezer door
The cold air escaping from any gaps in the door seal is likely causing the condensation build up on the exterior of the fridge. You'll need to see if you can get the door seal (it's magnetic) to lay properly against the cabinet all around the door.
Sometimes a dirty seal will cause very small gaps that will let cold air escape, so give the seal and cabinet edge a good cleaning, making sure that the surfaces are clean and dry when done. Also, check to see if the seal is tight by using a dollar bill placed between the door seal and cabinet, all around the door. Any areas that you can easily pull the bill out should be checked for tears and/or cracks in the seal.
You might have to buy a nes seal if your's is badly damaged, but usually you can restore it to working shape with some patience and a good cleaning..
The other thing to check, since you didn't provide a model number and approximate age of the fridge, is to see if you have a "energy saver" switch inside the fridge section. This will allow you to turn on edge heaters to keep the condensation from forming on the exterior of the fridge. With the energy saver "on", the heaters are turned OFF, with the energy saver switch "off" the heaters are turned on. Heaters draw more power when turned on, hence the term "energy saver" being turned on, saves you money if you don't have condensation buildup on the exterior.
