Question about Maytag Refrigerators

1 Answer

Why is there my Maytag MSD2732GRQ have water in bottom of freezer under veggie bin

Water is dripping down back of freezer and then developes a frozen puddle in the bottom under metal wire bin. Eventually is gets down by the freezer and leaks water out of the bottom of the door. I have been breaking the slap of ice in the bottom every other day to prevent the water leaking out of the freezer door.

    I see many questions just like mine on this website fixya.com., however, I cant pull up the solutions (answers)for it. I am looking for soluition #3 that a member suggesed. How do I view the solutions?

    Thx to solutions by 2 Boops and David Coomer I got on the right track. I used Pressurized air to blow out the blockage. Worked great. I was hesitant to use wire in case I caused further problems. Took no more than 15 minutes to take the back pieces out, clean out the tubing and put it all back together. Quick fix. Thx to both of you.

SOURCE: Icemaker issue: cubes melting at the bottom causing water leak out the front

J, sounds like your dispensor flapper is not closing properly and you are drawing warm air up into the ice bucket. This model had an issue where the flapper pin holder was part of the housing and would break off. They have a kit now that fixes that problem. The only other thing it could be would be low freezer temps or it's staying in defrost too long. With out being there, I would start with the dispensor flapper. Check it out and post back..

SOURCE: JCD2389DES Water Leak Problem

We also had this problem with a Jenn Air side by side. I cleaned out the drain tube and melted the ice in the collector tray but we still had water coming out of the freezer door later on. My wife started looking for a new fridge because she was tired of cleaning up the pudles daily. I went online to another site and found this to be a common problem. It seems the defrost cycle is not long enough to let all the water drain out of the collector tray and it ends up frozen in place and the the tube gets blocked and the the water runs down the inside back of the freezer untill it fills the the bottom of the freezer. Then it freezes and the the next time the water flows out the front of the door on to the floor. There are kits available to solve this problem and they cost about $20. I looked at what was in the kit and made my own part. It is a 9 or 10" long piece of # 12 or #14 copper wire (house wiring ground wire).
Turn off fridge and take the shelves out of freezer and then take off the large grill on the back wall and melt the ice in the bottom area where the metal water collector tray is. Look under the fidge where the evaporator tray is and make sure water is in fact running down the tube. To make sure it is, empty out the evap tray and put it back in and pour water into the defrost collector tray to see if the water flows down to the evap tray. If it doesn't then blow it out. If it does then take the copper wire and shove all but 2" of it down the tube that drains the collector tray. The last 2" or 3" of wire needs to be bent 90 degrees so that it lays flat in the tray. It seems the cooper wire that is down inside the tube conducts enough warmth from outside the freezer to keep the tray from freezing up to soon after the defrost cycle and lets all the water drain out down to the evaporating tray which is under the fridge. We never had water in the evaporating tray before because it was never making it down the tube. It has been many months now since my fix with no water on the floor.

SOURCE: Bottom of freezer has water dripping into it

We had a similar problem. It ended up being a frozen pea that fell down into the defrost drain and was blocking the water from draining out each time the freezer defrosted.

Ge model number tbx21jaxerww. Water collecting under vegetable bins


Hi,
The water building under the veggie bins problem is usually a result of the drain under the evaporator coils being clogged with either ice or debris.
The get to the drain, the shelves and sometimes the bins will need to be removed, then the back panel will need to be removed. There usually are a few screws on each side that hold the panel in place...
Then look for the drain right under the coil....if possible run a wire down the hole to make sure it is open to the pan underneath.
If it is frozen then a wire can be used to keep the drain open...here is a tip about how to do that...

Make sure the fridg. is level,(if it has been moved recently) there is a tube that allows the water from the evap. coils when defrosted to run to a drip pan. The tube is either frozen closed from prior defrosting or something is blocking the tube just below where it is leaking at. Turn fridg off and leave freezer door open (with a fan blowing in freezer if possible) for at least one hour and return to regular operation.

Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you need any further assistance.

Water leaking along back interior to bottom under & over veggie bins


Sounds like the drain to the drip pan is clogged -- maybe with ice.

Defrost water runs down to a drain in the bottom of the fridge and into a pan underneath where it evaporates.

Sounds like the defrost water is not reaching its final destination.

Here's the way the same problem was solved earlier today:

For those who have this problem with this model: The drip pan is in an open space on the back side of the refrigerator. There is a rubber spout that empties into it. But to clear clogs...you must take out the shelves from the freezer, unscrew and remove the back panel on the inside of the freezer. There you will see the water exit. Boiling water cleared it out.

Old Kenmore refrigerator leak


common issue.....sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine

Fresh food section not maintaining cold temp


You're frozen up.  Defrost completely.  Then, clean your condenser.  Make sure to never leave open containers in the fridge...water condenses into ice.  If you still have problems, you may be low on gas.

Bottom of freezer has water dripping into it


A bad freezer door seal causes condensation that freezes at the bottom of the unit. I realize you said the drip pan was full of ice, but if the drain is clogged, that will happen. If that unit has the pan at the very bottom, condensation can also contribute to this.
