Question about Maytag MSD2756GES Side by Side Refrigerator
Posted by Anonymous on
This is what it sounds like to me. There is a drain hole for the defrost water to drain down to the "drip pan" If that hole in the drain pan is clogged. Then when the defrost system melts away the frost in the cooling coils. Every 6 or 8 hours. The water will accumulate in the bottom of the freezer compartment and turn into ice. This is a very common problem.
Put the food in the freezer and fridge into coolers and pack with Ice. Get the 99 cent coolers at the supermarket and buy some Ice there too.
Shut the fridge down and open the freezer door. chop out the Ice in the bottom of the freezer compartment, but not in the drain area directly below the coils. that will be hard to get to and you may damage the fridge if you just chop away.
To speed up the process, get some hot water in a glass and pour it into the area below the coils
(that should be a solid block of Ice as well). If you cant get to this easily, just wait for the fridge to thaw out naturally.
After it has thawed out, you should be able to locate the drain tube in the bottom of the small tray
below the coils. Stick a flexible piece of wire, or pipe cleaner or something of the sort into it to completely unclog it. So when you pour water into that tray, it immediately drains out completely.
into the "drain pan" located below the freezer compartment in the base of the fridge.
I hope this helps,

Still sounds like the water valve that you turned off is leaking. The only sure way is to remove the feed tube from the water cut off and that way you can find out if the valve is leaking.
