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.

Hi, pull out the fridge and remove the back panel, and clean that area. Make sure no food is stuck under the fridge also. A rotten piece of fruit or other food, once under there, will smell until it totally decomposes. You can also 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. Finally, another popular methods of removing fridge odor include washing the entire fridge out with a vinegar and water solution, placing fresh coffee grinds or boxes of baking soda on each shelf and even using trays of cat litter.

One year old Maytag refrigerator with bottom freezer. We noticed recently that water accumulates and freezes at the bottom of the freezer under the basket. We don't notice it then when there is enough...


The drain to the bottom is plugged. you will need to completely defrost the unit. The way I do this is to take all the frozen food out and either put into a different freezer or pack all the frozen food real tight in a cooler then use a hair dryer (under constant supervision) to melt all the ice in the bottom. use towels to soak up all the water. after all the ice is melted you should be able to see the drain. this is where the melted ice drains when the unit goes into the defrost cycle. I have used some small amount of hot tap water to clear the drain and once in a while you need to actually push something thru the tube(compressed air or flexable wire) to clear out a blockage (paper, small piece of food or chunk of ice).. Be extra carefull not to crack the plastic with anything sharp or by using to much force. Once the tap water goes down into the very bottom (thru the drain tube into the catch pan) then the ice won't form as the defrost cycle will put the water clear down to the catch pan. sometimes even a scumy mold build up will block the drain. Get the drain as clean as possible and you may need to keep an eye on it so it doesn't become blocked again. After you clear the drain close the freezer and let it cool down before you put the frozen food back into the freezer.

We have water leaking in the fridge and it smells, we have to clean it every day. It is 6 years old. It is frost free.


There is a pan undert the bottom of your ref it has a plastic line apx 3/8 inch around that goes up to your freezer it goes up the back of the ref on the inside or inside the casing. It goes to a pan in the top freezer this line has pulled loose or become plugged try cleaning it out and pour a small amount of 10% bleach water in the freezer grill this is a air vent grill in the freezer it will kill the bacteria that usually has the smell of garlic. good luck

empty the unit and put a dish of charcoal in the frig and the freezer. Let it run for a week and see if that helps. Some odors will get into the plastic and insulation and cannot be removed.

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 leaks water even after water supply turned off


Remove the food from the lower portion of the freezer and remove the 2 screws which hold the rear freezer panel on . Remove the panel and use a hair dryer to defrost the ice built up over the drain . Once you see the black drain hole , concentrate on defrosting the hole . Once defrosted , the ice water will drain into the hole . I would use a small hose inserted into the drain and blow thru , to remove any debris built up inside the drain . Reinstall the panel and food .

Maytag Side By Side Problem


Check and make sure the drain pan under the refrigerator is in position and the drain hose is in the pan. If it misses the pan it will put water on the floor.
