Ice on the back wall of the side-by-side freezer and no ice
I own a maytag Model MSD2756GES side-by-side refrigerator/freezer and I have accumulated a sheet of ice on the back wall of the freezer. I have shut the freezer off; removed the food; scraped the ice and I see that there is ice in the vents on the bottom.
Is this something I can fix myself or do I need to call a repair person?

Are you sure it's the ice maker that's leaking? We have this model & ours accumulates a HUGE iceberg in the bottom of the freezer, but the water seems to be coming out of the back, at the bottom of the back panel, where the vents are.
Your drain line is clogged, that is located behind the white wall inside of the freezer. The water comes from defrost cycle, that happens every 8-12 hours. You need to defrost it and snake it. Maytag refrigerator repair in Orange County, CA
Blade of one of the fans caught on something; If the sound is from the freezer section - either get to the fan and clean it mechanically from ice or turn the fridge off for at least 12 hours. If the sound does not go away or returns - there is a reason for ice accumulation, call the pros ;)
If the sound is from the back and underneath - check the fan next to compressor. It may catch on the shroud. Adjust as necessary.
if you have a thin sheet of ice in the bootom of the freezer your drain is clogged,use a hair dryer to lossen the ice sheet and get it out of the way,heat up the drain hole and pull the frig. out from the wall,use a hanger or something you can usr to clear the drain tube,last get a hot half cup water with alittle beach and pour it down the drain,your done,let me know how you do-ike
Your condenser where the heat is removed from the refrigeration system may be plugged with dust. The condenser is more than likely located in back of the refrigerator behind a removable panel. Remove the panel and clean it out. Reinstall the panel after you have cleaned the condenser.
Check the back wall of the freezer for frost buildup. If there is frost buildup on the back wall it indicates that there is a problem in the defrost circuit.

bottom of rezzer compartment is supposed to be frozen( depending on timeof cycle) i wouldnt point to a defrost problem unitil the ice build up is hindering refigeration, its quite possible that thte defrost drain has just frozen itself over, and needs to be cleared to allow defrost water to go into the drip pan under unit
