Question about Maytag MZD2766GES Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

After many repairs to my maytag mzd2766ges, my fridge side cools for a while and then it stops until a new repairs

Why didn't Maytag recall all these defected refrigerators which were very expensive. I paid $2000 for mine and I started having problems with it from the first week when the plastic cover on the top of the door hinge broke off. I am so disapointed and I will never ever buy any Maytag products again. Now I need a solution for my fridge side which keeps stops cooling every month and ruins the food because the freezer side freezes too much and stops cooling the fridge side. For someone with a very limited budget the repairs cost more than buying a new fridge and I need maytag to provide me with a solution because I can't afford fixing it anymore.

    what is the Maytag defrost board part number?

  • Hlink1 Oct 05, 2008

    I have the same problem. The back bottom of the freezer will ice solid, causing the fridge side to stop working. If I unplug & defrost the system it will work for a few weeks. I've had it repaired three times in seven years & now it's frozen again. I'm ready to dump this piece of s.... but can't afford to buy a new one. Maytag should issue a free replacement part that works for more than a few years.

Yes the defrost board was the problem with my Maytag.
For those do-it-yourselfers out there that know how to solder, here is what I found.
The defrost board has many cold solder joints on it. I resoldered just about every solder joint on my board and the fridge seems to be working fine. Time will tell. If you don't know how to solder, this is not for you. I believe the expansion/contraction of the solder joints causes the defrost board to not work when needed.

Hi,

If either door is open, the airflow will be wrong. Do you see a lot of "snow" or frost building up at the bottom of the freezer rear wall?
Do you hear a fan running in the freezer compartment?
Where are your controls set?
Is the fan back by the compressor running?
Have you checked the air duct at the bottom behind the lower crisper drawers?


The main reason for this type of problem is that the (evaporator) coils below the fan would be iced up.
So, i need you to do this,
1.unscrew the back panels on the freezer side and note whether the evaporator coils were all iced up.
2. If it is iced up, then defrost the coils and then replace the defrost board in the refrigerator.

Regrigerator will be back to normal . Defrost board is located on top of refrigertor side underneath the temp control unit.
Easy repair once you remove the temp control cover. Unscrew the defrost board and plug new connection in.

Post your comments about how things turned up.
Thanx for using fixya,
Cheers.

The problem will come back in about a week once the coils frost up again. This seems to be a common problem with these refrigerators. I had the same problem a while back. Sounds like your defrost board is dead. part number is 12002104. You can find it at searspartsdirect.com

Water leaking from bottom of freezer door, and ice buildup on bottom of freezer


The defrost drain line in the freezer has frozen closed. Turn off the fridge. Remove the freezer bins. Use a hair dryer to thaw the drain hole on the bottom rear shelf of the freezer.

P.S. Your fridge is on recall from Maytag for a defective start relay.

Check to see if the bacl of the fridge is iced over, if it is the fridge is not defrosting, 99% of the time it is the defrost control circuit board located in the upper right hand corner of the fridge.

Maytag MZD2766GES side-by-side Refrigerator warm


is it frozen up? do you have any air flow thru the air tunnel from the freeze to the fridge? Check your air flow with the door switch pushed in. also check to see if the damper door opens... 1) if it is iced up you have a defrost problem. most likely a defrost timer. Turn off or unplug untill all the ice has melted off the evaporator back of the freezer..plug back in and it will work fine untill the ice builds up again. if this work you do have a defrost problem.. if not let me know and we can go deeper...
