    Default Maytag 2yo Water Pooling, Freezing in Bottom Freezer

    Model Number: MBF2258WEW
    Brand: -major brand-
    Age: 1-5 years

    (No icemaker water line connected.)

    Found water on floor, traced it to a frozen puddle in bottom of (bottom) freezer. Removed ice, re-formed within a week. Now I see moisture on the vent in the freezer's top rear.

    Is this caused by the plugged defroster line I have read about in other threads?

    Any tips please?

    Check the drain pan and hole below the evaporator. You'll need to remove the back wall of the freezer section to get to it. Use a hair dryer to defrost it then run very hot water through it to clean it out.
