Our maytag fridge has some leak into the freezer. Its a french door with a pull out freezer below. I have taken apart the freezer two or three times and cleaned out the drain and that hasn't solved the problem. Water seems to leak into the bottom of the freezer and I have to go and chisel out the ice every few weeks. Any input would be great. Thanks!!!

Pull your refrigerator out from the wall and remove the lower back access panel, then Look on the end of the drain tube. If there's a rubber "duckbill" on it, remove it and discard it. It won't affect the refrigerator at all. The end of the nipple gets stuck together and the water can't drain.

Ok, sounds good, that same thing happened to me at a local customers house back in March and sure enough it was that rubber "duckbill", once I removed it the defrost drain water came gushing out into the drain pan.:)
