Your drain may be plugged and water is getting onto the fan's electrical.
Go to back of the unit, remove access panel, check that the little drain tube is dripping water into the evap tray. Tray should be somewhat wet. You can use pipecleaner or coathanger to check for clogs in drain. Or cut the bottom rubber piece off to allow better flow..

Water draining into freezer Maytag MFX2570AEM


Certainly should be, if it is a blocked drain tube and not a broken fan or defrost unit.
Assuming this appliance to be a frost free unit, generally (as I don't know this particular unit), there should be an outside access panel on lower rear of unit. Behind this, you should see the compressor (large round or square sealed container) and a drain tube leading to it or to a receptacle on it, which allows the defrost water to drain from the freezer compartment, and evaporate using the heat of the compressor. It will be this drain tube that may be block with food debris or even (as I found on mine) a plug of mould. My tube just pulled off and I was able to completely clean through with fresh water. Inside the freezer, there must be a drain channel leading to the drain tube outside. This may be visible or hidden behind panelling and, If the outside drain tube was blocked, will probably be full of iced up defrost water and will need to be cleared, either by leaving unit switched of or, by careful use of a hair dryer - GENTLY - so as not to warp the plastic insides. Once this is cleared, ice can then melt off the hidden freezer grills when on defrost cycle and escape correctly to the outside for evaporation.

How do i remove a drip pan from a kenmore refrigerator


The drip pan collects water when the freezer goes into a defrost cycle. Most times there is very little water and the water evaporates quickly. When there is a problem with the freezer or the water does not evaporate between defrost cycles, the drip pan fills with water. If the front bottom of your refrigerator has a grille, you access the drip pan from the front. If there is no grille, access the drip pan from the rear.

Instructions
Rear Access

1 Unplug the refrigerator from the wall outlet. Pull the refrigerator away from the wall so that you can access the rear of the refrigerator.

2 Look under the refrigerator with a flashlight and locate the drip pan. Often when people install refrigerators they neglect to pull the packing from around the drip pan. The drip pan may have tape or styrofoam around it.


3 Remove any packing material away from the drip pan and pull the drip pan out from under the refrigerator.

Front Access

4 Pull the grille at the bottom of the refrigerator below the refrigerator door with your fingers. The grille secures to the refrigerator with plastic clips.

5 Remove any debris from the access area and throw the debris in the trash. The coils and fan under the refrigerator attract dust and dirt. Clean out the area with a lint brush if you have one.

6 Pull the drip pan out from under the refrigerator.

Outside ice despenser is dripping, no ice


water dispenser -Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.


ice maker - If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

Mix 1/3 cup of bleach and 2/3 cup of water , and pour down drain tube (rear bottom in freezer section . Too much bleach and the smell of bleach would be circulated by the fan to the room , so be sure to add water .

GE SIDE BY SIDE/MODEL #GSS25JMDCC


I also had a loud fan and it was caused by ice build-up on the fan in the back of the freezer. From inside the freezer, I removed the plastic grill that covers the fan (I think I also had to remove the side rails and ice maker) then just let the fan defrost in the sink. Made sure it was nice and dry before putting it back in or else ice would just form again. I also took a sheet of plastic and put it between the ice maker and fan grill to stop water from dripping onto the fan and haven't had a noisy fan since. I just need to remove the ice build-up from on top of the plastic sheet every now and then, but that's much easy than taking everything apart to get to the fan.

We have a side by side refrigerator/freezer. a water drip runs down the grille on the freezer side. a small amount. we cannot locate where the water comes from. Can you help?? model #ed20tqxfn00 Al...


If you have ice and water in the freezer door it would appear that the water line going to the water dispensor has a leak. First check where the door hindges at the bottom as this is where the line runs from the water container located in the fresh food compartment to the water dispensor in the freezer door.
