Water leaking from front base of freezer


Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section underneath the evaporator coil. Make sure water drains when you pour it in. If it doesn't - also clean drain tube on the back of the unit behind the cover. When done - put the tube exactly where it was.
Good luck! :)

Water leaking in freezer Maytag MSD2651HEQ side by side


you need to open the back of your freezer there is a hole for drain in the bottom...
clean it with hot water and pump so that way you clean the path to the drain pan next to the compressor.
The path might be frozen so use hair dryer at first... good luck let me know if you need more help.

6 yr old side by side inglis fridge/freezer. water


can be from an obstruction (i.e. food or debris) or incomplete defrost. water forms around the drain during defrost cycle and ices up when cooling cycle comes on. defrost the drain and try installing a heat probe part#819043 made by whirlpool.its a metal rod that wraps around the heater and goes into the drain opening to prevent the drain from icing up. hope this helps.

Maytag side by side refrigerator ice forms at the bottom of freez


Your drain is probably plugged. Remove the back panel in the freezer and keep squirting hot water down the drain hole with a turkey baster or something similar until it clears. The drain hole is located at the bottom of the coils in the freezer section. Your refrigerator goes into defrost every 8 to 10 hrs. When this happens, it melts the ice on the coils, which in turn, runs out the hole where the drain is. If something like algae is blocking or plugging the hole, it will plug up causing water to freeze over the hole. The water has nowhere to go but out the door.

Water collecting in bottom of freezer coming from back grill.


To poshodian: There are a few more posts about this problem. Of course, in order to fix it, you have to remove the panel hiding the condenser coils behind the grill and showing the drain hole.

This is what I just posted on one of them:

I’ve had my Maytag 2454 fridge for 8 years. But only this week did the same problem show up as cathy824 and lew223. When I poked a drink stirrer into the top of the drain hole, it was hard as a rock. Not knowing why condensate from the coils was not draining into the hole and tubing that would empty the water into the pan evaporator on the bottom of the fridge, I took everything apart in the back and messed around with the black rubber elbow at the other end of the drain plug. I shouldn’t have bothered, because what I finally did was to pour boiling, boiling hot water over the drain hole to melt the ice and gunk that was frozen solid in the drain tubing. While I was doing that, I poked the stirrer into the hole, washing the gunk down the drain and into the very dry evaporator pan. Keep pouring hot water into the drain hole until you’re satisfied that water can flow freely into the pan.

That solved the problem of condensate water freezing on the bottom of the freezer and running onto the kitchen floor. Thanks to lew223 for the fix! The fridge should be good for another 8 years now.

Water accumulates and freezes in bottom shel


The drain for the defrost is blocked, probably with ice. If drain is frozen it will need to be defrosted, and a heat probe attached to the heat element and down through the drain hole. If not frozen there could be blockage in the drain cup depending on the model.

Heres you problem your drain plug in freezer is likely frozen as well and water is running under fridge. You have to replace the thermostat defroster assembly Its behind the panel at rear of freezer and runs down and under condenser coils. Part cost $42 and plugs in its easy to replace It creates heat which keeps the coils free of ice and also keeps drain from freezing.

Bottom of freezer has water dripping into it


A bad freezer door seal causes condensation that freezes at the bottom of the unit. I realize you said the drip pan was full of ice, but if the drain is clogged, that will happen. If that unit has the pan at the very bottom, condensation can also contribute to this.

My Jennair Side by side has ice in freezer bottom and leaks water


This sounds like the defrost drain line is clogged and frozen. Every 8-12 hours the defrost cycle melts the ice buildup on the coils and is supposed to drain out to the pan under the fridge. Once this is blocked or freezes up the next cycles continue to put liquid water over the existing ice which then freezes, etc. till finall the area is frozen enough for water to find it's way out the door seals. You will need to take the back interior panel off the freezer side to view the coils and drain line. It will take lots of hot water to melt the ice in the drain area and the drain line in order to run a cleaning tube (basically a piece of 1/4" tubing like the water line tubing a couple feet long that you can force down the drain to make sure it's not plugged). Once you push the cleaning tube down the drain and can see it come out the other end in the drip tray pull it back out and pour hot water down it once more to watch that it drains fast. That should do it!
