Hi, With the information you supplied i'm going to assume there is an ice build up at the rear of the freezer. Your problem is going to be with your defrost system. I will also assume you have the ability to repair this yourself. This is going to be one of three problems with your refridgerator, 1st thing to do is remove shelfs and panel in the back of the freezer...you should see ice build up on the evaporator...don't worry get a hair dryer and melt the ice. Next locate the wires for the heater...using a multi meter test the heater for condinuity...if the heater is bad replace it, If the heater is good replace the defrost thermostat..the stat normally is a barrel looking part clipped onto the evaporator pipe. The last possible problem could be the evaporator fan, have you heard the fan running in the past few hours?..if you are not sure pull the panel out to where you can see fan and watch it over an hour to see if it turns. I have included links with pictures of what the parts you need to check are: http://romulusappliance.com/manufacturers/maytag/refrigerators/575432.JPG defrost stat http://www.hotekalliance.com/UploadFiles/2008627111553382.jpg heaters http://www.applianceblog.com/archives/EvapMotor1018185.jpg evap fan. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. If you decide to get a repair guy in should not cost you any more then $120 - $200 depending on make/model/problem Good luck & thanks for using fixya! Mike

Water running from underneath the freezor onto the floor. Water pooling in the bottom of the freezor.

The water dispenser keeps freezing. The Ice Maker is fine. This is happening everyday.; We thaw it out and then is does it again. Fridge is set at 37 and freezer is a 5


if this is a side by side frige the water tube that runs inside freezor door pulls away from insulation causing it to have no insulation between the freezor and the tube alot of then you can thaw one time and there fine. disconnecting the water line at bottom of frige behind toe kickin front and usually is a push in an d release tab connectors or plastic threaded nuts blowing air through can use air compressor not at full blast works great and then once you have it flowing run gallions if possible though to make sure no water deposits no debrie to slow water down to give more chance to freeze oh and if it hasa filter make sure its update and replaced this will help also if still problem persists may need new door they foam insullat these things at the factory cant just move it or put more insulation inside door , door are spending too

Not cooling at all


Either the compressor has seized or refrigerant gas has all leaked away are the two most likely and expensive reasons!

My freezor work good but the fridge does not cool


There is ice blocking the passage which allows cold air from the freezer to pass into the refrigerator compartment. Turn the refrigerator off. Find where the cold air passes into the refrigerator and remove/melt the ice. You may need to remove some panels to access this passage.

Freezor barely freezing, fridge barely cooling


After the electricity came on what setting did you use? I would start out at 4 or 5.When a unit sits too long without running the coolant will settle to the bottom it can be hard on it because it is trying to push it threw the system.After it defrosts all the lines should be clear. From there it could be as simple as the fan in the freezer is slowing down or your compressor is on its way out. Also check the vent from the freezer to the fridge for blockage.

You need a qualified technician for the leak repair and recharging of refrigerant. All of the refrigerant in the system are gone, next time do not use sharp object when cleaning your fridge.
