Question about Maytag MFD2561HEQ 24.8 cu. ft. French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator in Bisque

Open Question

I had a Maytag MBF1958WEW1 bottom freezer refridgerator. There is ice in the bottom of the freezer compartment and leaks from time to time. I'm guessing a drain line is plugged somewhere. The unit is less than 1 yr old.

  • first make sure the metal arm to the right of it is lowered, this turns the icemaker on. 
  • then you can check the water supply to make sure it is turned on, sometimes when houses are vacant they turn the water off as a precaution. the valve may be behind the refrigerator or under the sink in the kitchen.
  • then...
The refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser (if equipped). The valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself. 
Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.

SOURCE: water drains from freezer compartment into refridgerator

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

Freezer works ice maker leaks water into freezer compartment. Refridgerator cranked up all the way cold and throws warm air not cooling food it is 5 years old


sounds like its set to high on the cold selection, and it needs to actually defrost , setting the freezer to colder much of the time will worsen the problem, if you can unplug it for a day and let the machine defrost ( deice) then it will be able to actually function better, Ice causes the functions to not be able to work properly. the ice maker leak could be caused by the limit switch being frozen , remove the tray and make sure that the unit isn't clogged with ice, if it is,, leave the tray out while you have it unplugged, and it too will fix itself once the ice is removed

Ice maker leaking


Are you sure it's the ice maker that's leaking? We have this model & ours accumulates a HUGE iceberg in the bottom of the freezer, but the water seems to be coming out of the back, at the bottom of the back panel, where the vents are.

WAS IT LEAKING FROM INSIDE THE FREEZER OR FROM BOTTOM OF FRIDGE? ONCE IN A WHILE YOU NEED TO TAKE OUT THE ICE BIN AND DUMP ICE OUT AND CLEAN IT. HOW CAN THE ICE MACHINE OVERFLOW WITH ICE WHEN THE ICE IN THE TRAY WON'T BUDGE? NEED CLARIFICATION. SOUNDS LIKE YOU EITHER HAVE A BAD ICE MAKER MODULE OR THE SOLENOID FOR THE ICE ON THE WATER VALVE IS BAD.

WATER LEAKING OUT OF FREEZER DOOR


The defrost drain hole in the bottom of the freezer has frozen over. Turn off the fridge. Remove the shelves and bins. Remove the rear panel of the freezer. You will see ice on the bottom rear of the freezer. Use a hair dryer to melt the ice,especially in the drain hole once you get through the surface ice. Once the drain hole is clear,pour a cup of hot water through the drain hole followed by 1/4 cup bleach. Re-install your parts and turn the fridge back on.

There is ice buildup in the drain and maybe under the seperator. Remove the back panel in the freezer and the botom floor of the freezer and remove the ice. Be careful of the styrofoam ducts. Eric

Compartments are not real cold/ ice maker stopped working too


It sounds like your refrigerant was leaking out. There may be some settled at the bottom that would explain the frozen water on the bottom. a good appliance store should be able to find the leak fix it and add more refrigerant.
