At the back bottom of the freezer there is a drain. It is frozen. Remove the rear bottom panel in the freezer. Break up the ice (I use a small putty knife) and get all of it out including the ice on the bottom of the freezer floor. Run HOT water over the drain until it drains freely to the pan underneath and your problem is solved. Whirlpool makes a heat probe that connects to the defrost heater and sticks down into the drain hole that helps prevent this from happening again. The part # is 819043 ($9-$13). The heat probe is about 4-5 inches long so it depends on how close the defrost heater is to the drain hole. If you look at this diagram the defrost heater is # 12. I have seen people use a metal clothes hanger as a substitute but hanger must be tight around heater. This keeps that drain hole warm. Let me know if you have any other questions.

SOURCE: Maytag lock and filter change
to reset the change filter light:
Press hold the LIGHT and LOCK pads until the CHANGE FILTER light blinks (approx. 3 sec.)
to interrupt power to the water and ice dispenser so it cannot be used , press the lock pad 3 times within 10 seconds.

Mod. R47 gas RV fridge 1973. It lights and gets cold (sometimes below freezing in the bottom of frige) then it starts to warm up above 55, but the flame is still burning high. I try to turn it down with the fridge thremostate and it stays the same. Is it the thermostate? If so where can I order one?

first thing I would suggest is to flush the drain line. defrost any ice in the drain and then flush warm water thru the line until it flows freelyif your having a hard time getting the line flushed out you may try using a large syringe or turrkey baster filled with warm water to forcfully flush water thru the line. this will most likely fix the problem.
you didnt mention if food was freezing in the refrig as well as the drain but there may be an off chance that the temperature control could be bad. since this is a manual defrost unit it depends on above freezing temps to help keep frost off of the cooling coil. if the temp control goes bad it will allow sub-freezing temps and possible drain freeze ups. so if the drain continues to freeze you will need to replace the temperature control.
if it comes to that, the control actually has a part number on it since maytag cant find your model number.
message me back if you have any further questions. thx peyton
