Clean your coils. Then defrost ice build up with a hair dryer. Good luck!

SOURCE: My Maytag side by side (no icemaker) keeps leaking

OK, You need to unplug for a hour or so. Remove the rear panel in back of freezer to expose the evaporator coils. At the bottom of the evaporator there is a tray that catches the defrost water to take it through the back and down to the condensate tray located near compressor and condenser fan. Most likely you have ice or something trapped in that drain beginning in the freezer. I have heard some people turn the freezer temperatures so cold ice will form before the water can drain. If you still have problem contact me. If this helped vote or rate me. Thanks Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Ice forming on bottom of freezer section. Water leaking in from back

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

SOURCE: I( find a puddle of water on floor at front left

The problem with your refrigertor is that the defrost drain is plugged up. After you get the ice buildup out of the freezer section you will have to locate the drain system. It is in the back of the freezer at the very bottom.It needs to be cleaned out. Hope this at least leads you in the right direction.

SOURCE: Ice forming inside freezer

If the water is showing on the freezer side, more than likely you have a clogged drain. This occurs when the machine goes into defrost and the melted ice somehow is prevented from draining and therefor refreezing and blocking the drain for the next defrost cycle. The best way to resolve this is to unplug the machine for atleast 24-48 hours to let all ice melt. Also note on the maytags these days they put a rubber piece called a duck bill on the bottom half of the drain which will also cause this over time. To access this piece you'll have to pull the machine from the wall and remove the lower panel and find the plastic drain and remove the duck bill

Drain hole would be just under evaporator coils. You may have to remove cover on inside back freezer wall to access it.

There is water freezing under the bottom mount drawer. The ice is so thick that water is leaking out the front onto the floor. There is no information in the manual about troubleshooting this problem


Try to have it fixed under warranty.
If that does not work, here is what is usually wrong.
(I maintain a dozen of these and see this all too often.)
One day, the freezer drawer might have been left open, even for a short time.
I mean, not closed tight.
This causes warm air to enter the freezer, and then ice forms where the warm air met the cold air.
The ice forms in and around the gasket, which then keeps the door from closing tightly, which then causes more ice to form, etc.
After a good defrosting , and cleaning, (especially the gasket), see if a fresh start has fixed this.
If it happens again, you might need a new drawer gasket.
God bless your efforts.

Ice is forming on my "not working" ice maker drawer


check that the water isn't over filling the ice mould or that water isn't escapeing down the back of the draw due to an allignment issue with the filler tube. worst case could possibly be a cracked ice mould.

Why is water forming under the veggie drawers


One of two things caused this problem, either the drain in the freezer is clogged and spilling over to the air duct and through to the refrigerator, down the back wall and then puddling up under the drawers or the Styrofoam between the freezer and refrigerator is saturated with water. If you remove the inner back wall of the freezer and there is ice built up, defrost it with hot water and a turkey baster, push some heavy weed trimmer line down the drain tube and they should clear the clog. If there is no ice build up, then you probably have the latter of the two problems, the only solution is to empty the unit, turn it off, and let it dry out for a few days with the doors opened. If the problem continues, then there is a significant breakdown of the Styrofoam between the two cavities and there isn't a solution, it is time to purchase a new unit.

Amana bottom freezer: water leaking & ice build-up


There should be some kind of drain at bottom of freezer compartment to collect and run off any condensate that collects during defrost cycle.. Clean out the drain and snake out the line that leads from it. Right now the liquid is collecting where it should not and it will leak out the gasket when you have enough of it.

Water leaking and ice in bottom shelf of freezer


Chances are you have a bad seal around the door if it's leaking from the inside which causes the ice to form as well, or if it's leaking from under the freezer you lave a bad heating element that evaporates the water collected in the pan under the freezer or you have a clogged hose that goes to the pan under the freezer which also causes the ice to form because the water has no place to go. Defrost and try to find a way to blow out the hose that goes from your freezer to the pan under the freezer and that should take care of your problem.

Water collects on shelves and below the crisper bins at bottom


Your defrost drain hole is frozen closed.

Once the drain is clear poura 1/4 cup bleach in the drain hole.
