Just moved into a house, and I just noticed that water was pooling on my floor from my side by side Maytag MSD2655HES fridge. I took the back plate off to see what could be causing this. It seems the copper line leading to the compressor is frozen and covered in ice, and where it meets the compressor it melts and drips down. Can anyone suggest how i can fix this before i make a service call?

Thanks!

Hi Levi,

Sounds like the sealed system has been worked on and whoever worked on it overcharged it with freon, that will cause that low side copper line to freeze back to the compressor and leak water on your floor. You will need to call Maytag out to resolve this.
