Hello friends, long time no see.
I came home to an issue with my Maytag bottom freezer refrigerator Ive had about 5 years. Model number is MFF2558VEW2 Serial K02264517
The bottom of the freezer had about 1/8 inch of ice frozen to the bottom like it has been dripping water down there and then freezing over.
I dont know the source of the water but there is an icemaker in there. It has been making ICE regular and cubes seem to be average size.
Tonite when my daughter brought it to my attention I was able to simply pop out most the sheet of ice at the bottom by hand and removed the rest easily with a spatula.
Then I noticed what looked like water pooling in the vent area at the rear about 6 inches above the freezer floor. I dont know if this is condensate that cant drain off, or leaking
water from the icemaker water valve perhaps? I chipped the ice away from that area but it appears to still be pooling or maybe it was thawing and dripping down. At the center of that vent
area it appears to have an indented area that may be an area where a drain may be located? Maybe it is frozen over and cant drain out of the freezer?
Here are a few pics. Hoping for some advice. I am thinking of removing everything and thawing out what ever is behind there to see if it will drain out naturally. Maybe Im way off base.
