This issue usually is caused by a broken fan (from the evaporator at the back of the appliance) or the evaporator needs cleaning.

You need to clean careful the evaporator (tubes) and be sure the fan is working.

I have a 3 yr old maytag ref/w/bottom drawer freezer. We have noticed water/ice under the freezer basket. Sometimes it is thawing and comes outonto the floor.Any ideas what causes this? I have not found...

Have you tried the following steps: 1) check that the gaskets are free of any damage, dirt, or ice. The door gaskets should seal perfectly on closing. 2) Or: turn off the ref, safely guard your frozen food, let the ref thaw totally and more. The purpose is to eliminate any undesired icing. If no succes and your problem gets worse call for help.

How to maintain your refrigerator door gasket.

One of the most common problems with a Refrigerator is the door gasket torn and falling off.
I can't tell how many homes I have been in and seen the door Gasket on the Refrigerator falling off, especially at the bottom. Its a very simple
maintenance remedy that most do not think of or have ever done.
What happens almost always is that sticky stuff (syrup,jelly.cokes,
orange juice,etc. spill down on the lower door and gasket and then dries.
Guess what? When you open the door the gasket is stuck to the fridge
and it pulls the gasket a little each time until it pulls off.
Its very simple ,once a week or so to take a warm wet rag and clean
the gasket all the way around and also the ref base then gasket seals to.

If this was helpful please rate me.

Maytag fridge not cooling

If the ref or freezer is too warm and you turn the dial to make it colder the compressor should come on. If the ref or freezer is not cold like you say the compressor should be on all the time. You should hear it, but you can definitely feel it and it should be very warm after a short while.
If the compressor does not get warm unplug the ref with the compressor running and plug it back in immediately. A good compressor should not start up right away.
If it is running and not getting warm and does start right up after unplugging it and plugging it back in it is inefficient and not compressing the freon gas enough and therefore not cooling enough.
The fan in the freezer should be running as should the fan under the refrigerator.
The condenser should be warm and the fan should be blowing[drawing] air across it when the compressor is on.
You don\'t repair compressors and to recharge them correctly is expensive.

Water accumulating in bottom of kenmore

It's likely the condensate drain is plugged. You can access it from the back of the refrigerator. You can disconnect from the inside of the fridge and blow it out to ensure it is not blocked, then reconnect.

Freezer and Ref. are warm

i assume this is a frost free type. the fault may well cure itself.
to hasten the process, remove the back panel inside the freezer and you will probably find the pipework frozen up. melt of the ice carefully with a hairdryer making sure you don't heat any stats that are clipped on the pipework

Kitchenaid Side by side refrigerator/freezer

when is the last time you cleaned the condenser coils the areas you describe are supposed to be hot there is a loop there to keep the door gaskets dry but should not be too hot pull the fridge out check to see if the fan is running on the compressor then unplug the unit and clean the coils the only other thin that will make it super hot if there is a leak in the low side of the system and has drawn air in see if cleaning the coils fixes it first and we will go from there
