I have a maytag plus model #msd2758drb, the freezer builds up with ice really quick,then the frigerator warms up want can i do?


You have a problem with your defrost system. The defrost heater is not coming on to thaw the frost that builds up on your evaporator coils. This restricts the airflow to the ref side. You will need to find out which component needs to be replaced it could be your defrost control, defrost thermostat, or defrost heater. The heater and thermostat are located behind the freezer panel. The heater can be ohmed out with a meter and tested for continuity, the thermostat will usually be popped out if its bad. If both of these parts are good then the problem is your defrost control, my model look-up is down right now but it could be a circuit board or just a standard "timer" style control.

Hope this helps _MJ_

Where do I find the defrost timer and thermostat in a hotpoint refrigerator


If your model has a defrost timer there are only two places I know that they are placed. Behind the control panel inside the fresh food compartment or behind the kick plate at bottom of refrigerator. If you send me the model number of your Hotpoint I may be able to tell you exactly what you have. Some models have something called an Adaptive Defrost Control. And when defrost stops it is not always the defrost control causing the problem. So a model number found around your door frame or inside would be very helpful in locating the correct parts for your refrigerator now and in the future, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Frigerator working not freezer


you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, ie defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

Freezer works but frigerator does not


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp

OR..
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.
