I have a Maytag Refrigerator (model MSD2757AEB) that has started
dripping water today. I thought it might be the ice maker fill hose but
I've turned that off at the wall and it is still dripping. My next thought
is the defrosting. I pulled the shelves and there is a layer of ice in the
freezer against the back wall on a pice that appears to be removable
via some screws at the top. There are some sorts of slots in the piece
that have lots of ice. It does look like the slots still breathe though.
Both sides seem to work fine. I am sure that ice is a sign of something
but not sure what. Unfortunately it is dripping onto wood, so I am
trying to keep it dry until I can figure out how to fix it. Any help
One last thing, mine has this adapative defrost controller. It does not
seem to have a screw to activate it. How do I go forward, or is it time to
call somebody and have a heater coil and defrost controller in hand.
Sounds like a frozen evaporator coil. You can remove the cover, let it
defrost and it will buy you a few days until it freezes again. If the fan
works, then it is probably the defrost system. If the fan does not work,
I'd replace that first.
