Question about Maytag Refrigerators

Open Question

In Oct. 2009 I bought a Maytag refrigerator. Model MFF2258VEWO Serial # KY2518044 This is a bottom freezer with pull out drawer. I love the refrigerator but everytime I pull out the freezer drawer ice falls out onto the floor. Whats wrong and how do I correct it? Also, how do you get the drawer out so you can clean the bottom of the freezer? Thanks...Janelle Giblin

SOURCE: Bottom of Maytag Freezer Ices Up

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..

SOURCE: water in bottom of fridge

Thanks to all who spent money or shared their experience to have somebody do this repair, and I really mean it.
I have a Whirlpool TopLoad Fridge (not a side by side).
Things you'll need
30 minutes
Small socket for cardboard panel on lower back and panel inside freezer
Bicycle Pump
4 Towels
Hair Dryer

1. Take everything out of freezer
2. Turn dials off in fridge for both compartments
3. Pull fridge out so you can get behind it and unplug it
4. Be vigilant of ice maker line if installed
5. Pull cardboard panel off on back
On the left side you should see the back of the skinny drip pan and a small line. That line goes from the freezer and is most likely clogged.
6. Blow dry the back of the freezer enough so the ice is thawed at the bottom of the back panel.
7. Remove the two screws on the back panel. You may just be able to pull it toward you enough to get behind it. You'll see the coils and fan, and underneath these you may see some ice sheets and there should be a hole. That is the drain line that is clogged. I heated up some water and poured it over the drain to thaw the line. You may want to remove the crisper drawers and put some towels down there to catch the overflow. Once the ice is thawed enough at the drain. Go to the back of the fridge and place the end of the bicycle pump at the bottom of the drain hose. Apply pressure to get a good seal but keep pumping. You may have to go back and forth between pumping and thawing, but you'll know it is clear when you hear air going into the freezer and then the wonderful moment when water drips into the drip pan as advertised!

Keep those fridges less full so that the door stays sealed and keep the seal clean and also keep your doors from having too much stuff so the weight of the door doesn't pull away.

Okay, put it back together, turn everything on and be careful of your cord and lines when pushing the fridge back. Thank the Lord ours has wheels and man,was it cruddy underneath. Vacuum those coils underneath the fridge too for proper air circulation.

Blessings to you!

SOURCE: fan runs constantly, freezer ice melting, bottom drawer in refrig

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.


  • If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf.


  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, we recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

    The adjusta cube ice maker has an on/off switch. To stop the ice from overfilling and being knocked off when you open the freezer door turn the ice maker off and then back on as needed.

    Freezer drawer slides


    you have to keep the white wheels on the rod even or the draw won't close correctly,pull the racks out fully open and even on both sides,you might have to adjust the wheels so both sides are even,i use a marker and mark the wheels,now when you hook the door assy on.you have to make sure the wheels stay in place or when you close the whole unit one side of the door won't close all the wa,it's a little tricky if you never tried to line them up before but if you mark the wheels part numbers 12002497 so both sides stay lined up it will close correctly. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-MFD2560HES/3048/0161000/M0412077/00009?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=MFD2560HES this is the sears site and will show you a picture of all the parts.hope this helps

    Maytag MFI2266AEU Water and ice dispenser locked, control panel


    Door Panel Locked
    Press Door Alarm and Freezer "-" at the same time, then release Door Alarm but continue pressing Freezer "-". You will see PE _ _ _ _.
    Press Freezer "-" until PE # # # # shows on the panel.
    Using Freezer "+" to move cursor, Refrigerator "+" and "-" to change numbers, bring all numbers to "0". Press Freezer "-" until PE and numbers blink. Unplug refrigerator for 45 seconds, never beyond 1 minute or you'll have to start over.
    Look inside refrigerator door and locate the serial sticker. To the right of the serial number is the CODE ####. Plug in your refrigerator.
    Press Door Alarm and Freezer "-" at the same time, then release Door Alarm but continue to press Freezer "-". Using the same method as above, enter the four digit CODE number you found on the serial sticker. Press Freezer "-" until PE and numbers blink. You have just reset your panel. Unplug for 45 seconds. Plug in refrigerator and you should now have full use of your door panel.
    This unit has a built in safety timer mechanism. If it dispenses water for two minutes, it assumes it is flooding your house and shuts the panel down. If you are filling a pitcher of water, just stop dispensing halfway through to reset the safety timer.

    Sounds like the icemaker may need to be replaced. When you open the freezer drawer it cuts power to the icemaker.

    Pull out your WIDE-N-FRESH Deli Drawer at the bottom, and when the lid automatically raises look to the right: you'll find a sliding temperature controller that most likely is all the way up. Slide it down towards the bottom and this will cut back on the cool. Worked for ours!
