I have a large double door Fridge Freezer (no ice maker so probably not connected to a water supply) which keeps leaking from the base. Seems to come from below the freezer drawer....the reservoir below the freezer drawer is, in fact, full of ice. What do I do?
Your defrost drain is frozen/clogged shut, here is a video on how to clear it. it may not be exactly your model, but should be very close...

Thanks a lot for this, tho a friend had suggested that this was the problem, I could not see any defrost drain outlet in this fridge...I have always had one before, which was easy to access. It was worth paying to have this confirmed and also to see how tricky it will be to fix!

I am an OAP, neither am I a fridge repair man, so I will have to get someone in to fix this. NO POINTS TO MAYTAG, I love this fridge for storage, it is brilliant, but am sorely disappointed with this poor performance.

I understand. Goodluck on the repair..
