Is it cheaper to buy a new fridge freezer or have it repaired its 3 yrs old and freezing food in fridge compartment


it will be cheaper to first get a technician out to diagnose the problem and then decide from there
as it is freezing food , the compressor is working and that is the biggest repair cost that would point to a new unit
at 3 years old , check for the warranty period as it could still be covered

Why is Maytag refrigerator MFI2568AE keypad frozen?


Perhaps the fridge is working too hard? this can be caused by a defective thermostat. Buy a cheap thermometer (should be go as low as - 30 or -40 Celsius ) put it in the fridge. The freezer is working ok, if the temp is around -18. The fridge should be between +5 and +7. If one or both are much lower, change the setting and watch if it helps (can take a day or so) if it does not change, I think someone should put in a new thermostat.
Sometimes there is a switch you can use when you want the freezer to work hard, because you need to freeze some fresh food. If that switch is still engaged, switch it off. It only costs lots of energy if it is below -18, and is not keeping your food one day longer in good condition.

I had same problem. Needed a new thermostat. Lasted about 18 months, then needed to replace fridge. Ice build up is between the inside and outside layers of the fridge as well. May just be more economical to replace. Cheers

Hi paulmac437

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

You would like to know what to do if the fridge is getting to cold and has started to freeze certain foods. You have the fridge set to 6 degrees which is the watmest it will go, this makes no difference.

You have an electrical problem. Most likely a bad thermostat. If it is under warranty you're covered! If not then you need a local pro. I do not recomend "do it yourself" on this. It can become very dificult to properly diagnose and expensive to start replacing parts. The local pro will have the diagnostic equipment and knowlege to solve this and it will come with a guarantee, no handyman allowed in this case.
If the fridge is old it may be best to buy a new one.
