Question about Maytag MSD2656G Side by Side Refrigerator
Ice builds up on the bottom of the freezer. i scraped it all out but it formed again in a few days. finally i was greeted by a nice size puddle in front of the freezer door.
For units with automatic defrosting, there is a drain, sometimes concealed, for the defrosted ice (water) to drain into a removable pan under the coils below the two compartments.
I suspect this is clogged with bits of debris and preventing the melt-water from dripping into the pan.
Check under your ref./freezer behind a trim grill for this pan and check the condition of it; overflowing or empty.
Normally, the fan that blows ambient air through the coils keeps this pan dry-to-moist.
It's fairly shallow so if your ice maker is leaking it will overflow but it should normally only be wet for a short time after the defrost cycle.
If it is pretty dry, note which side is wet. If it is wet under the freezer section, the clog might be loacted there.
If you do not see any holes that could be a drain in either side of the fridge, you could have a more serious problem trying to free it.
Each liner is made as one piece to help keep the inside free of dirt traps but there may be access panels and if they are found low and in the back, they may be intended to access a drain.
If you are lucky enough to find a hole toward the bottom, you should be able to free the drain.
Depending on the location for access, you should be careful poking anything too stiff (like a screwdriver) into it as the coils could be damaged.
Something like a piece of 18 gauge copper wire would be better.
