20 Most Recent Maytag Freezer MQU2057 Questions & Answers

Your tech doesn't have the issue completely fixed. You have a defrost issue and defrosting manually is just the start to resolving your issue. You have to diagnose why it fails to defrost. You have a heater, control thermostat,frost sensor, etc. to check for a failure after defrosting it. Get someone that knows how to complete the job right!

The drain from the freezer is at the base of the evaporator section.
This is behind a plastic cover at the back inside, which must be removed to see it.

There should be screws visible, or clips which must be removed first. Often these are covered with plastic covers too.

Use a mould-killer spray, and a length of PVC covered wire to clear it.

My be that the unit is not defrosting. There is a timer that turns off the freezer and turns on a heating element to melt the ice in the cooling fins. If this does not happen the fins fill with ice and ice begins to form as the water drips down under the ice. the bottom will freeze and the top will begin to warm.

Hi, Check the rear panel inside the freezer and see if it has frost building up on it. If so, shut the refrigerator off for 24 hours or remove the rear panel and defrost it with a hair dryer.
It should be ok after that ubless the evaporator fan motor has gone bad.
Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

Sounds really strange to me. Not sure what kind of patch he could have used. I've never heard of "freon noise". Clicking and popping could be the thermal overload tripping and resetting. The unit should still be under warranty. I would contact them to get another tech and another opinion. It would be best to get this resolved before the warranty wears out.

Check these two things first.  1.  Is there a thick frost buildup on the back panel at the bottom half of the freezer?  2.  Do you hear the fan running inside the freezer?  Let me know what you find.

Maytag Freezer... | Answered on Oct 13, 2007

that is very possible if the fan and compressor are running. the best thing you can do is call maytag. its only 4 months old and is there problem to fix. Good Luck

There are only a few scenarios where the water is coming from to freeze there.

Condensation from putting food in there which is warm, especially anything not wrapped or bagged.

Defrost water drain blocked. Look for a channel at the back or within the blower unit.

Badly fitting, split or worn out door seal. This lets warm moist air from the room into the cabinet which then freezes.

Excessive frost build up reducing efficient circulation of air, or overloading.

Finally, kids spilling water!

thermostats are usually a "on/off" switch just as a simple light switch. Ohms on a defrost timer is not very specific. It is basically a switch that turns heaters on and off while keeping the compressor off during the defrost cycle. Your thermostat may be sticking/hanging up.

I have had a few of these, and others of the same ilk.
Your problem should be air leakage into the machine.
Take a thicker piece of paper, not cardboard, and try to slide it around the gasket where the door gasket contacts the front of the freezer.
The gasket should be firm enough to prevent the paper from sliding. Wherever you can move the paper, you could have a air leak.
Most of these have no adjustment in the latch to tighten the door. Sometimes a new gasket will solve the problem, sometime a new door will.
P.S. Twice I have tied a new freezer to a refrigerator dolly to move it and have accidentally warped the door, and they cannot be straightened. :-(
God bless your efforts.

repairs should be performed by a qualified technician. if there isn't ice in the ice bucket located in the freezer you have a water flow problem. if there is water going to the filter and nothing out of the freezer then you have a clogged freezer replace it. if these things are ok then yes it could be the electronic control. filter failure is a common problem.
