check your main board (located on the back wall of the fridge). pull board out and check back of it, usually one relay legs burns out.

You need to put a heat source in the fridge compartment near the fridge thermostat. Try putting a lower wattage bulb (40w) into the fridge compartment. Or even try this, take the door switch out of the fridge and short the two leads together. Tape the exposed ends with electrical tape and that should provide enough heat to keep your compressor on long enough to keep the freezer cold. Just remember to put the switch back in in the spring and summer months or you will have a real high electrical bill. Hope this helps you.

Freezer is cold but not keeping icecream frozen.


If, the fresh food section is 34- 38 degrees, then the freezer should be cold enough to keep ice cream solid. All of the cooling capability comes from the freezer section. I, personally, would not waste time or money on a ten year old box. Ten years ago it cost $1000, so, the outlay is $100 per year. Dump the old refrigerator and get a new one.

do you have any frost on the wall of the freezer? and do you still have your old control board? if yes check in the back of the board if there are any burned connections black connections, and feel free to put your nose on it and smell for a burning smell i dont know how much will it smell now but that is the easiest way to check the board ge side by side fridges have the control board problem which you replaced and the defrost heater if you have a lot frost on the back freezer wall you need a new dual defrost heater if you dont check the new board you put in for burning  if thats ok too check your compressor if its really really hot if it is try cooling it down with some paper towels and cold water put about 5 so so wet towels on top of compressor and 5 on bottom and use a couple to wipe down the middle of the compressor
if you got any questoins feel free to ask  good luck

Maytag model (MTB1950GR) tripped off the power switch and smell


Hi, It sounds like the relay onyour compressor. They will smell when it goes bad. Remove the rear panel on the back of the refrigerator and see if the smell is around the compressor.
Please let me know If I can assist you further.
