Question about Magic Chef 11.8 cu. ft. / 334 liter Upright Freezer CFU1236GRW

1 Answer

Maytag Freezer my upright freezer door of my Maytag/MagicChef 11.8 cu ft CFU1236GRW freezer is leaking at the bottom. There are two pressure floating buttons at the base of the door in the middle, if I press on them, water runs out. We have defrosted the freezer again but the water continues to come out of the base of the door. The freezer seems to run fine. Since it is not frost free, it does need to be defrosted a few times a year. How do we get this leaking to stop. We have to keep pans at the base of the door to keep the rug from getting wet. Thanks

Maytag upright freezer will not drain and water will freeze in bottom. How do you repair Model CFU2046ARW

Check your door/'s are sealing if they leak u will get freezing occurring in the bottom and around the door will have allot of condensation.
good luck all the best . P's always lay liquid bottle on their side as they will cool quicker and be better on electricity.

I have a Magic chef upright freezer i can hear the compresser running but it will not freeze meat

Has this happened suddenly? Look at the shelves to see if there is a frost line. If the shelves that also carry the Freon appear to have a frost line your freezer may have a Freon leak. If there is a Freon leak it will be better to begin looking for a replacement freezer. Let me know what you see, Thanks Sea Breeze

I have a maytag upright freezer. It is on the coldest setting. A bowl of water on the bottom shelf freezes overnight. The middle one is freezing, but not entirely. The top one is still water, but cold....

check to make sure door seals are touching the frame all round, could be an air leak,also make sure there is no ice build up around the inside casing. if so fully defrost unit,clean all vents/drain pipe, then turn back on and leave it for 24hrs (freezers work beast when full).....and door shut..how many times have you closed door after them????
