How to repair upright maytag freeezer, water fozen at the bottom.mqf1656tew02
There are only a few scenarios where the water is coming from to freeze there.
Condensation from putting food in there which is warm, especially anything not wrapped or bagged.
Defrost water drain blocked. Look for a channel at the back or within the blower unit.
Badly fitting, split or worn out door seal. This lets warm moist air from the room into the cabinet which then freezes.
Excessive frost build up reducing efficient circulation of air, or overloading.
Finally, kids spilling water!

ICE BUILD UP IN A MAYTAG MODEL MZF34X16DW UPRIGHT FREEZER
I have had a few of these, and others of the same ilk.
Your problem should be air leakage into the machine.
Take a thicker piece of paper, not cardboard, and try to slide it around the gasket where the door gasket contacts the front of the freezer.
The gasket should be firm enough to prevent the paper from sliding. Wherever you can move the paper, you could have a air leak.
Most of these have no adjustment in the latch to tighten the door. Sometimes a new gasket will solve the problem, sometime a new door will.
P.S. Twice I have tied a new freezer to a refrigerator dolly to move it and have accidentally warped the door, and they cannot be straightened. :-(
God bless your efforts.

Refridgarator is not cooling
thermostats are usually a "on/off" switch just as a simple light switch. Ohms on a defrost timer is not very specific. It is basically a switch that turns heaters on and off while keeping the compressor off during the defrost cycle. Your thermostat may be sticking/hanging up.

Refrigerator not dispensing water or ice
repairs should be performed by a qualified technician. if there isn't ice in the ice bucket located in the freezer you have a water flow problem. if there is water going to the filter and nothing out of the freezer then you have a clogged freezer replace it. if these things are ok then yes it could be the electronic control. filter failure is a common problem.

What setting do I use to make the freezer freeze food
When you are freezing something, set your freezer on its highest setting. However, if you are going to leave your freezer empty for a long time, you should change the setting to a lower one. Here's a great tip for ice cream: place a tub of ice cream in a ziplock bag before putting it in the freezer; it prevents freezer burn. You know when your ice cream gets so cold, it's hard to scoop out? Doing this stops that, it's keeps the ice cream just soft enough for easy scooping!

Ice maker don't work
They are usually located behind the compressor compartment panel. remove the panel and follow the water line you should see the water valve. If there is a water filter in your unit these can plug up ,and cause no water to enter the icemaker. I alo have had bad icemakers.
