Question about Maytag MSD2732GR Side by Side Refrigerator
I have been getting a small puddle on the freezer side in the front of my fridge about once every couple days. I shut off the water supply thinking that was the problem but it still persists. Also Ice is building up at the bottom of the freezer. Not sure if they may be related.
You need to unplug it and let the ice melt or pour hot water and place a pan underneath if the bottom tray is stuck.
Then remove the inside freezer plastic cover with a couple 1/4" screws. Use a ratchet or a screwdriver sized for these.
The bottom tray has to be out for the cover to slide down and out the bottom. There is another screw holding the drain pan and it can be rotated up and wiggled out.
Once you get the metal pan out you'll see the drain hole.
I used a little baby bulb to try and first **** out the drain and then to blow through it. You don't want to push anything deeper that can come out easier from the top.
I also took a pipe cleaner like the ones kids bend up for crafts.
You can get these at a liquor store or craft shop.
I'd use the bigger ones if you can get them.
Coat it with a little dish soap or similar and jiggle it in the opening until you clear out the drain. Then follow up with some more hot water.
I use the coffee maker with nothing in the tray to get instant hot water. The stuff from the tap is probably not hot enough.
This will fix your problem...too late for me though.
I put this off and the ice went all the way up the condenser and over the wiring. I think it shorted it out since the fan doesn't run and there are no signs of life.
This is a known problem, as well as the bad compressor with all that clicking and buzzing. I'm sure you already had that replaced since you made it this far.
Maytag is junk. Renew your warranty or sell it in the classifieds before you have a real problem!
