water is leaking from bottom at feet, this one has no ice maker why is water leaking?

looked under no pan and manuel only talks about ice maker refrigerator is 2 and half years old this is new
Asked by: needhelp2
I just dealt with this on mine, there is a drain for the evaporator that becomes plugged with ice and when the system defrosts the water runs onto the floor. You have to take the inside of the freezer apart to fix it.

Are the freezer compartments pull out?Why not have the freezer door open in the pic?Makes me think you are hiding something.

Asked by: Mamsy
It has a pull out wire basket on the bottom. Even with the ice maker that is installed, it is a nice size freezer. I was surprised with no pic also however I was pleased with the inside. The bonus is the nice bright light, Really nice and bright, Makes it easy to see what is in there,

30 in. W 18.7 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator in White with Stainless Steel Handles is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 287.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am happy I am happy [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Choice We have a small kitchen. The area allotted for a refrigerator is limited. While there were several choices available I chose the Maytag due to the name, style, and what I viewed online. Even a detail like having the stainless steel handles for both the frig and the bottom freezer made a difference. What I like the most is that the shelves inside the refrigerator can be moved to either the left or right in various positions. The result is that you can better organize and see what you have inside the unit. I believe I made an excellent choice. Also the delivery guys did a great job in assembly the unit and maneuvering it into place after transporting it through a narrow porch and kitchen area. I am more than satisfied.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ... but if you are looking for disposable We have had this fridge for less than three years. Ice is forming inside the back of the freezer and moving down to the pan, migrating towards and out the door like a glacier eventually spilling out through the front of the door and melting on to the floor.. I actually called Sears, because I thought they had their own repair people, and they told me that they were aware of the problem, and would send me a free replacement part if I paid the certified repairman to do the work ($125 service call + labor). Maytag/Whirlpool says there are no recalls on this particular model. The customer service was awful. I decided that the ice maker wasn't worth that much to me and disconnected the water. Two and a half years isn't very long to have significant problems, and I'd say 20% of it's purchase price in repairs within 3 years qualifies as a bad investment. I wouldn't buy it again, and feel bad selling it to someone else. Good luck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean, bright and cold! This fridge looks great, makes our kitchen look updated. It has a very clean look inside and out and runs quiet and cold. Not sure what else you would want in a refrigerator? BTW the screws on the front door (opposite of the handle side) are barely noticeable. I would buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely AWESOME!!! Have just had this refr for three days. But, after having a top mount freezer forever, this is an absolute dream. Some things to get used to. Space in fresh food section - plenty. Same with the freezer. Did not hook up ice maker. Probably won't. The meat/cheese drawer - great idea. If you use the configuration for the door and shelves as shown, it really works out. I must say that this is the quietest running fridge I have ever heard or can't hear. I/We almost thought it wasn't running, but it was. WOW! So, stay tuned there will be further updates. PS: the screws on the front door, no big deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied with our purchase... We were looking for a more reliable refrigerator since our GE's compressor broke after only 5.5 years use. After consulting Consumer Reports, we discovered this Maytag refrigerator (30 in. W 18.7 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer) with good ratings and a 10 year warranty on the compressor. So far we have been pleased with our refrigerator. We like the bottom freezer door over the bottom drawer we had on our previous model. This makes it easier to clean and more space. Our only wish was that the drawers were a sturdier in construction.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Defrosting system flaw We loved everything about this refrigerator for the first two years, and then the defrosting system ceased to work: ice accumulated in the back and bottom of the freezer and then leaks to the floor. The cause of the problem appears to be a grommet below the condensation drain, which clogs up due to poor design. To fix this you have to do two things: first, clear accumulated ice from the drain, located behind the back wall of the freezer. Accessing this drain requires patience and epic feats of contortion. Second, you have to clean out or replace the rubber grommet, accessible behind the panel at the back of the refrigerator. Youtube videos show how to do these things. Perhaps Maytag has corrected this design flaw on newer models. If you're considering this refrigerator (which is perfectly fine otherwise), I would ask to make sure your fridge has an updated grommet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maytag bottom freezer Very nice refrigerator, top quality, stylish, the handles are SS industrial look, the front finish is smooth and sides are textured. Quiet, cold, and I notice vegetables having a long life. It replaced a Maytag top freezer, which is still running great after 10 yrs, but the bottom freezer is sooo much better, love it.
