. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. It drains to the pan underneath which is difficult to reach. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing.

Water pooling in the bottom freezer


You most likely have a blockage in the condensate drain line.You should turn off the frig.and empty the freezer,take a hairdryer and melt the ice on the bottom of the freezer.somewhere in the back on the bottom you will see a small drain under the evaporator.you may have to remove the cover of the evaporator to find it.once you locat the drain its just a matter of blowing out the line with a piece of 3/8ths plastic tubeing.

What is a "drain plug"??? Never seen one on a fridge ;)
Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section underneath the evaporator coil. Make sure water drains when you pour it in.
Good luck! :)

Model #MSD2735GRW--leaking water inside the freezer and freezing 10 inches of ice on the bottom where the basket rests. cannot see any visible water leaking. HELP


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Kitchenaid Bottom mount refridgerator is has stopped cooling but freezer is maintaining correct temperature

We replaced the evaporator motor. Use an Ohmmeter to see if electricity is going there, first, see if fan is running, then, if not, replace evaporator motor-part # 12002744.

Fridge is now running! I'll post again, if there is any more to the story. We are now waiting to see if it gets to temp, but it is running. I'd love to find info on a reset code.

Drain keep freezing up at entry point to the drain tube causing water to freeze from the drain top down to the bottom of the freezer. ( frozen waterfall!) Could the defrost heater be malfunctioning? i.e....


Not sure of your model number and manufacturer, but in some freezer there is a seperate drain heater that should stay on for the complete defrost time. (the defrost heater will shut off when the evap coil reaches a certain temp, and the rest of the defrost time only the drain heater is energized.) That would be the very first place that I would start. Hope this helps

I have a maytag MSD2754GR, the freezer bottom is all iced


The drian hole has become stopped up and ice has accumulated in the the drian hole. You will need to unplug the fridge and remove the cover on the back (located at the bottom, 6 screws). On the freezer side there is a drian hole with a rubber 90 and a clear line that runs to the drain pan. Remove line and unstop. Don't not put the line back on yet.

Now for the fun part, remove the basket and the two bottom shelves from the freezer. Half way up the back there are 2 screws that need to be removed. After removing screws pull up on the top cover to so you can remove the bottom cover. The bottom cover maybe froze to the coils and to the inside drain pan. Break the ice with a butter knife, and remove cover ( do not hit the coils). Now you need to break the ice that is froze to the the pan and under it. Once you have remove all the ice you will see the drain hole, use a small pointed object to break ice that is in drain hole. Now you can put the drain line back on and make sure that the other end is in the drain pan under the fridge. Now reassemble the fridge and plug it back up.

It took me about 20 minutes to do this.

Hope this helps.
