Question about Maytag Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a fairly new Maytag frig with bottom freezer which cools well but I can't seam to change the temp and more importantly, a lot of fog comes out of the frig port, the frig and freezer seam to have excessive moisture all of the time.

    The house is conditioned with a heat pump and the relative humidity runs 30-45% in the house. We have had the frig for three years, and during the first two years, there was no fogging sen from the air outlet in the frig (sometimes there are water drops, or ice crystals on the outlet). This problem started this year, so something in the frig has changed. It acts like it can't get rid of internal humidity quickly enough. Any further ideas?

Maytag side by side msd264rheb freezer works frig isn't cold. We found ice on bottom freezer side and did melt it with a hair dryer. Frig vent is letting in, now a little cool air, but not a lot.

If you found ice in the freezer then there is usually a lot more behind the back plate. If you let it defrost completely it should work good for a couple days until the ice builds up again. you more than likely have a deefrost issue. There are usually nthree components in a typical defrost circiut. The heater, defrost thermostat and a defrost timer or control. one or those is bad.

make sure that there is nothing blocking the flow of air coming in. the fridge is cooled by the air in the freezer. also you might think about replacing the relay on the compressor. it may be going out.

thermostate stuck in defrost mode. sometimes they are inside frig(were temp controls are) sometimes in bottom rear of frig. IF you can find it you will find a small knob with slit in it. turn it clockwise just a little and clicking will stop and frig will start cooling however it will probably do it again. recommend replace thermostate.

Runs all the time and seal is hot

sounds like the defrost timer is stuck on defrost while the cooling cycle is engaged this could be from a faulty limit switch in the defrost element circuit! to a temp controller in the freezer have to remove the inner boxes and panels to get too this area takes a lot of time and patience as to not break the plastic panels

8 yr old maytag msd2758drw side by side isn't freezing

If the clicking noise is comming from the rear of the frig it could be your compressor trying to start. The motor would be the fan in the freezer running. That part would be normal.
If it is the compressor it could be replaced but if it were me I would buy a new frig.
