Question about Maytag Refrigerators
Inside the box would be a door gasket issue maybe. Easy fix just silicone enough to fill problem area just a little bit thicker than needed at bedtime to the gasket, cover with plastic wrap, shut door. Cut away excess plastic after dry. If in pan under fridge make sure coil and fan are clean. Must have cardboard or metal across the back like factory designed to draw
or push warm air over the pan. Many back panels get damaged or completely gone.

Testimonial: "This has 2 lights at the top front of the refrig compartment."
1. Ice maker is not cold enough to start the ice making process.
3. having to take off the back panel is an indication of a problem in the defrost system. Call to have a service tech check this out.

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.

pour some hot water in the drain if this does not work use compressed air

Testimonial: "So far that worked great, we will see if it continues to drain when the freezer is back on and does it defrost cycle."
Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use
and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater
comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost
drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the
freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

the defroster isn't close enough to the drain to be effective. remove the back wall of the inside of the freezer, remove the excess ice. clear out the ice from the drain using hot water and a turkey baster. there is a kit from whirlpool that uses a piece of metal and a screw around the defrost rod, but I found out that a piece of 14 gauge solid core wire with the insulation stripped off works great too. stick the stripped wire into the drain, 2 to 3 inches, and wrap the rest around the defrost rod.
