Water is collecting at the bottom of the fridge under the salad trays constantly


Whenever that happens on our fridge we find that the drain out the back is blocked. Have a look inside the fridge on the back wall, you may see some guttering that guides the inside moisture to a hole. That hole drains to a pan on top of the motor. Heat from the motor evaporates the water. I have always managed to clear ours by poking a bit of flexible wire down the hole. It's not a frequent occurrence, probably 7 or 8 years between blockages.

Maytag side by side fridge freezer leaking water


Your drain plug within the evap area of the freezer is frozen, turn frig off, let sit for day or two with doors open. Once all ice has melted then take rear freezer evap cover off and pour water into try and make sure it drains, if not then unplug drain. This is usually caused by a defrost heater bad or unit not going into defrost when it's supposed to, may be main board.

LEC L6046W FRIDGE - ICE/FROST INSIDE THE BACK WALL. MOTOR IS RUNNING CONSTANTLY.CLEANED ALL THE ICE OFF BUT WHEN SWITCHING BACK ON, WITHIN 10MINS THE ICE,FROST IS BACK?


1.I think you might have a thermostat problem it is over cooling the system and doesn't shut off when it is suppose to. Replace the thermostat
2.If the door seal is broken or the door is not closed shut with the seal magnet nice and tight against the fridge it will form ice inside the fridge as well. Replace the door seal. (this is very common with old fridges)

Ice build up in bottom of freezer


Check the ice maker. sometimes they get cracked a will leak water into the freezer compartment. Also check the ice maker fill tube for leaks or someone could have spilled something. Although this is tipical of a clogged drain. What happens is when the fridge go into derfost, it will melt all the frost that is on the evaporator, turning it into water. The water drains down to a trough under the evaporator and down a drain hole in the trough ( this trough is behind the evaporator cover ) Removing the melted frost from the freezer. If that drain is clogged, the water cannot leave the freezer. Then when the fridge starts back up ,it will freez the water that was not drained. After repeated defrosting the water will fill this trough and run off into the bottom of the freezer to be frozzen when the fridge starts to cool again.

Whirlpool side by side Refrigerator not cooling, two -- where -18 temp used to be.


the fact the bowl was filled with water and that you said the inside of the freezer was coated with ice, indicates a failure of the defrost system.
now the ice has gone, reset the temps and wait to see what happens

Ice build up


Check that the door is closing properly otherwise the freezer will be working overtime to cool and ice will form. If the door seal is good, it is possible that the thermostat needs to be checked.
