Question about Maytag Refrigerators
You can clear the drain tube by gently reaming with a wire hanger.
Blockage won't cause it to freeze up so quickly though. Check the thermostat setting? Otherwise it is very likely that the thermostat is not deactivating when it should. This would require replacement of the thermostat.

Hello Georgia Peterson - Do you hear anything running in the machine compartment and what type of airflow is the condenser fan providing (try removing the toe grille, located above the drain pain on the bottom right-hand side)? If you do not hear the compressor and unit is providing room temperature, it usually means that the unit has a faulty compressor or a sealed system leak. Also there is a vent towards the back of the freezer that circulates air from the freezer section to the fresh food section. If this vent is blocked by too many items in the freezer it will cause the unit to work harder making it colder in the freezer and keeps the air from flowing down to the refrigerated section. If you would, make sure that the vent is not blocked so that air can travel from the vent down to the refrigerated part. This will decrease the temperature in the freezer, allowing for ice cream to be pliable and the fresh food section to become colder. Should you find these suggestions unsuccessful I would recommend contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

Over time debris, ice or food particles can get stuck or lodged into the vents. If the vents are blocked cold air is unable to properly flow through the unit. Cleaning the vents will cause the cool air to circulate throughout the unit once more. Check the vent to be sure there is no ice that needs to be melted. Defrosting the unit with a blow dryer for faster results may solve your problem. Another place to check is the refrigerator seals. Seals are what keep the appliances door closed. Cracks in the seal will result in a loss of cool air. This causes the unit to run continuously, which can ultimately lead the complete unit to shut down. It can also be the reason the temperature has increased. It is also a possibility that your refrigerator is not cold because of the evaporator fan. The evaporator is activated by the door switch, which comes on when the door opens. If the switch is not working properly it will not turn on the evaporator fan.
