Question about Maytag MSD2454G Side by Side Refrigerator
Water in the bottom of the freezer indicates that the drain in the bottom is preventing the excess water from defrost from draining. If you have the time you can empty you unit and let it sit for several days to completely thaw (unplugged and doors open), or you can unplug the drain in the freezer. Typically either of these two methods will fix the problem...

I don't know the particulars of your brand, but if it is frosting up Most fridges will have a bad heater element, a bad defrost timer (or controller if it is electronic) or most likely a bad defrost limit switch. This is a switch mounted on the inlet line of the evaporator with a clip and senses when the evaporater is defrosted so that it does not get too hot and start melting parts. This switch should have zero ohms of resistance when cold (below 40ish) and be completely open when above 40 or so. The easiest way to test it is take the wall covering the evaporater off and locate the plugs for the swiths. Test continuity through it. If it is sitting in ice, it should have no resistance. If it is open and in ice (infinite resistance) then it's bad.

If you remove the bottom drawer in the freezer you will be able to see the back of the freezer. You will notice a large build up of ice in the bottom of that panel. If this is the case, you will need to empty the freezer up to the icemaker bucket. There is a panel with several screw in it that you will have to remove. Once removed you will want to defrost as much of the ice as you can with a hair dryer. Once you get the ice down to the hole you will want to heat some water up in the microwave and pour it into the hole repeatedly until it clears the line and drains on its own. This will remove whatever bug of ice particle that blocked it. Put everything back together and you will no longer have this problem.

Sounds like a defrost problem, is there ice on the back wall of the freezer? If so the defrost system has failed. The most common repair is a Part# 67004757 defrost thermostat and adaptive defrost board Part# 67004704. Even with the parts in your hand, you will need to de-ice the freezer to replace the thermostat in the freezer section, then unplug unit to replace the adaptive defrost board located in the controls of the refrigerator section. Normally it can take about an hour to complete.
