Question about Refrigerators
I have a Maytag Plus Side by Side refrigerator and the bottom of the freezer keeps icing up to the point that I have to end up chipping out the ice on a monthly basis. It also ends up leaking on the kitchen floor. The fridge works fine and the rest of the freezer is no problem Maytag Model MSD2756AE has to have ice chipped out of bottom of freezer compartment every week. Also, even before the ice maker was hooked up, the refrigerator would leak water onto our kitchen floor intermittently, to the point where it would be dangerous if one walked into the kitchen at night and did not see the puddle. What gives?
You have a plugged defrost drain. easiest way to fix it is unload freezer compartment defrost all of the ice, then remove the 2 screws that hold the rear cover in place about half way down the back wall. once this is removed use hot water to flush out the aluminum evap pan at the bottom of the coil. once it is cleared i will usually pur a little bleach in to kill any algae build up.\
be sure to unplug the refrig and use caution not to cut your self on the evap coil as the fins are very sharp..

I had this happen to me and I had to get Sears to come out and the coil was clogged with ice. It had to be thawed and that was it! It looked simple to do and I'm a girl! The repairman told me it may do that every 5 years or so. Just take the screws off the back. Chip away the ice. Rinse with water and wala! Be sure to turn it off first to keep the water from freezing, too.
