I have a Maytag Upright stand alone freezer, Model #mqf1656tew. There is a thick layer of ice covering the bottom of the freezer under the basket. It is now leaking from underneath on the floor. I understand the drain may be plugged or frozen. Can you tell me exactly where the drain hole is so I can access it? Is it visible on the inside or do we need to take it apart? If so, can you tell me where and how? The freezer is in the garage and access to it is tight. Thanks in advance.

Okay this last one showed up. I think I getting all yours.I wrote about 6 others that wouldnt post. After I find the drain hole, what do I do, pour hot water and once its melted check for a blockage? I dont access to the freezer at this minute, its in the garage and I am on a desktop.

Appliance Technician: Ezekiel, Home Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

yes that's correct pour hot water once it melts the water should go out to drain pan its common that it freezes up it will happen again no way to prevent but its random.
