Maytag MZD2766GEW No Cooling

FixYa,

My Maytag MZD2766GEW stopped cooling - fridge and freezer side. Compressor is clicking. It has a capacitor mounted on chassis close to compressor. Checked it on capacitor tester. Is measuring 15.3 uF (within tolerance). Is there other circuitry I can check before calling pros to possibly change out compressor?

V/R

    I have a side by side whirlpool refrigerator that started leaking, I defrosted the freezer drain and this seem to help. Then The Frigerator side would not get cold. I heard the fan making strainge noise now it does not sound like the frigerator side is not turning on. I just took apart the back of the freezer part and defrosted the back and made sure that no ice was blocking the vents to the fridge.....Still nothing.. could the compressor be bad?

    Refrigerator and Freezer not running cold enough. Freezer does not seem to be getting enough cold air, do not see normal foggy air coming into back top of freezer compartment. Fans seem to be working. Compressor is warm to touch so are some copper tubes and fan next to compressor is working fine. Some cool air being pushed out under front of refrigerator.

I replaced all the factory components with a supco 4 in 1. This fridge has a run relay and you must use the the supco part that has a the run cap included or use the Supco part wired to use your original. I did use my original overload too. I should detect compreesor heat much better. Doesn`t hurt a thing to use two overload devices. Some techs do not recommend start kits like Supco but my fridge runs just fine. It could save a unit that you would have to replace. I would not use one on a newer fridge that is still in warranty.

Freezer is not cooling. Pulled out fridge and cleand the vents for the cooling fan in the back. Also cleaned the front vents and coils. Tilted the fridge a little bit to get at the coils on the bottom....


If it is not cooling at all it is because the compressor is not running and that needs to be confirmed. Once established that the compressor is not running, then you need to look at the start relay and the capacitor if there is one (Capacitor). That may be the problem; bad start relay/overload or bad capacitor. Check thoroughly. If your compressor is running and there is no cooling, the refrigerant might have escaped ; I mean a refrigerant leak. In that case, you need to call a serviceman.

Maytag MZD2766GEW side by side refrigerator fridge not cooling


you have a defrost problem, could be bad adaptive defrost board,t-stat heater,when you open freezer door listen for fan if fan is blowing check the t-stat,look at it and see if it has a buldge on it,sometime you can see this and tell it's bad,you'll need a meter to read out the heater and other parts to see whats bad,might be a good idea to call a tech to do this,when you find problem you have to melt everything out again

Fridge not cooling, freezer not freezing, buzzing sound


with any luck this is you overload and relay
it is the plug on the actual compressor, this is very easy to replace, if you replace it and it does exactly the same thing its your internal relay and your compressor is done....

Maytag Fridge (Model # MZD2766GEW) not cooling


Check to see if you have frost on the back panel of your freezer in your fridge. If you do your coil is frozen over and you'll have to defrost your freezer. I just did mine cause mine wasn't cooling properly on my fridge side.
