Temperature alarm light is on and a small amount of water is noted on the floor at the bottom of the freezer. Ice cream is a little soft.


The defrost element has failed, ice buildup will be noted at the inside rear of unit lower. Replace defrost element (service tech required). fixed and many years trouble free, very common.

Ice buildup in bottom of freezer--puddle of water on floor


this sounds like your freezer is operating properly, except that the drainage of the water when going through the defrosting mode is not draining properly, pooling on the bottom of the freezer and then freezing. Check the drainage hose for the defrost in the lower pan. I would remove everything, place in ice chest, let the unit completely thaw out and then inspect. I hope this is beneficial.

What could be causing my 7 year old upright Frigidaire Model FFU21K2CW0 Freezer to NOT freeze? The inside (of the compartment) coils feel cold, the seal is good, but the ice cream is VERY soft. The...


Your freezer is probably running constantly as well. Lift the bottom vent panel (the one with all the holes in it) and look at the bottom of the back panel. There should be a half inch gap for the cold air return. If you see a solid wall of ice in that gap your coils have frozen over. You need to clean out the freezer and defrost it. Look in the back near the compressor. If your model does not have a drain plug in the bottom then you need to leave the door open and mop up the water as it melts off the coils from the inside. If you can, wheel it outside on a dolly and let it defrost where it can drain on its own. After you are sure it is totally defrosted, plug it back in at a control setting of 5 for at least 4 hours, preferrably overnight, and check the temp. Setting the freezer at 7 will encourage ice buildup. Your problem may be a bad defrost timer, which your local appliance parts store may have.

My Maytag side by side fridge freezer is leaking at the bottom and ice is collecting at the bottom of the freezer. I cannot find any model number but think it's about 6 years old


The drain is clogged behind the wall in the freezer you can do one of three things take the back wall inside the freezer off and thaw the drain in the bottom and clear it out,Pay someone else to do this,or you can mover your food for a day unplug the unit open the freezer door and leave it off for 24 hours allowing the ice to clear from the drain,seems to happen about every five or six years with Maytags..
