Question about Nor-Lake Norlake Refrigeration 4' x 6' Kold Locker Walk-In Cooler - 6' 7'' High w/Floor

Open Question

Maytag refrigerator model # MTB1956GEQ

Water is pooling daily on the top shelf of the fridge section yet the walls are dry and nothing appears to be leaking from the freezer. The thermostats of both fridge and freezer sections are working and both sections are cold enough. We can not see where the water is coming from.

stopped up drain in the freezer remove back freezer panel and
unthaw the drain pan and the tube, the tube connects to the bottom of the metal pan, you will see a hole about the size of a dime direct the heat from the hair dryer at this hole it may take 20 min, to thaw
pour some water down the hole if it is clear of the ice the water will run to the drain pan at the bottom of the ref
if it does not keep thawing until it does

SOURCE: the refrigerator section is freezing. the temp adjust is at 1

This could be the actuator is not closing the door that controls how much cold air from the freezer is ciculated into the fresh food section. It could be something broken or there could be ice biuldup on the door itself, not allowing the door to open or close.

SOURCE: Freezer compartment of refrigerator not freezing

First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.
So, how can the Ref side be cold and the freezer side not freezing?

1. Coolant leak. There is enough coolant to keep the Ref side cool but not enough to freeze on the freezer side.

2. Defrost system failure. The coils on the freezer side are clogged with ice and it's just a matter of time when the Ref side won't cool either. The back wall in the freezer will be covered with ice/frost

Water pooling on top shelf in refrigerator with top freezer


Hi,

Your drain is obstructed within the freezer compartment causing the water to floe into to lower section via vent ducts. To correct this, you will need to access the rear wall of the freezer and at the bottom you will find the drain hole. Remove the obstruction with warm water and remove all the ice also.

Good Luck

Water pooling on top shelf. Freezing as well. How do I fix this?


Probably the water drain is blocked. The auto defrost generates a fair amount of water which is channeled into a tube leading through the fridge wall to a tray fixed to the motor where the heat will evaporate it.

Whirlpool, water puddles on top shelf of fridge


If it is not from a plugged or misaligned defrost drain tube, then it is always from air leaking into your refer section. Check you door gasket to see if it is sealing correctly all around your door. Make sure your door is shutting tightly every time. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

Everything in my frig is frozen


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp .. I don't know what he was doing with the putty unless he was stopping up the vent which won't work because you have to have the air circulation for the fridge section to work. The fridge temp control may be the problem.

Water dripping from freezer onto top shelf of fridge with ice buildup back of freezer


the defroster isn't close enough to the drain to be effective. remove the back wall of the inside of the freezer, remove the excess ice. clear out the ice from the drain using hot water and a turkey baster. there is a kit from whirlpool that uses a piece of metal and a screw around the defrost rod, but I found out that a piece of 14 gauge solid core wire with the insulation stripped off works great too. stick the stripped wire into the drain, 2 to 3 inches, and wrap the rest around the defrost rod.
