When you say it's leaking, I guess the temperature is good and if there is a defrost cycle, it appears to be working correctly? Then it's possible there is a drain tube that's meant to allow the defrosted water is run away and that it's blocked. Blocked drain tubes quite often cause water to puddle inside a fridge. You might be able to clean the tube with some kind of chemical cleaner, like White King? or some other kitchen liquid cleaner. Or some people find the ends of the drain tubes and push a length of fine wire up or down the tube. It gets blocked with mold and food particles occasionally. The tube will run from your fridge compartment to a drip tray, usually sitting on top of the fridge compressor.

Here is a quote from:
the dr

http://www.fixya.com/support/t213687-blocked_fridge_drain

"I use a little air pressure to clear drain lines, than pour a diluted solution of water and a little bleach down the hole water should drain fast and not pool."

Note: Beware of sharp edges and damaged electrical connections. There are a number of dangerous areas to work on, inside & under appliances. Good Luck. Dave.

Water is leaking out from the bottom of the freezer


Below the freezer coil is a drain trough. Sounds like it is frozen. Use a hair drier to melt it and poor baking soda with warm water down it.

I have a puddle forming on the freezer side of the maytag msd2756gew side by side refrigerator. It seems i have a leak. what could be leaking and how do i fix it?


Your Ice Maker could be leaking or the defrost drain behind the back freezer wall could be blocked with ice or another source of blockage leading down to the pan below your refrigerator where the water is heated by the evaporator fan and replaced back into the air inside your home. You will need to unplug the power before going into the back of your freezer. Let me know if you would like help. Sea Breeze

Look for obstruction at the drain tray for the freezer. Common to have plastic wrap sucked into that area.Or gunk in the drain line. Blow through line to insure the gunk is not an issue.
