    I've looked at the back of the fridge -- I do not see a drain pipe. My model number appears to be Hotpoint CTHY 14CRLRWH

This is an indication of the blocked drain tube. You have to clear the blockage.

Before clearing the drain tube, unplug the refrigerator or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard.

Your refrigerator has a drain that leads to the exterior drain pan beneath the refrigerator. Occasionally this drain can become clogged resulting in standing water inside your refrigerator. A similar drain exists in the freezer, which when clogged results in ice build up on the floor of the freezer. The drain is located either on the floor of the refrigerator, beneath the vegetable crisper, or in the wall behind a drain funnel.

Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into it with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog.

Why is water pooling in bottom of fridge under veggie drawer.? Also freezing ice cubes in back part of cube drawer


Just above the veg drawers at the back is a channel that collects water when the fridge defrosts. It has a hole to drain the water which is blocked and the water is pooling under the drawers. Clear the hole with a drinking straw.

Water collects, runs alot, food freezes


Sounds like the defrost timer may be out of whack. Is the temp control turned all the way up?
Are the coils clean? Are the door seals sealing?
Are the penguins still working when you close the door.
Hope these help,
Matt

STANDING WATER ON TOP SHELF


If the freezer is on top then empty out the freezer and remove the bottom and back liner of the freezer compartment usually phillips screws. In the back you will see the freezer coils along with a defrost element. Below these two items u will see a drip tray that collects water from the coils on defrost cycle, in the center of the pan will be a drain hole that connects to a hose that leads to a pan under the refrigerator.Normally the water is collected there and evaporated. The hole in the tray in the freezer is clogged. Thaw it and clean it until you can pour water in it and it goes to the pan down below. please rate me

Bracket holding glass over fruit / veg compartment broke


http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/54436.gif Maybe this diagram will help you. www.partselect.com I just replaced the Crisper Shelf Frame. I received it very quickly. I am now looking for some sort of support for the whole shelf, because it still seems to be sagging. I may have to invent something. If anyone out there has a solution, please post it.
