Samsung side-by-side , freezer fine, top half of fridge won't stay cold, temp goes to the 60s. The drawers seem fine. The compressor is pretty hot. Any ideas?


You are probably experiencing a defrost problem. if you the back wall of the freezer closely, you are like to discover frost buildup which stops the flow of cold air from the freezer into the refrigerator. In a "frost free" unit, the defrost heater comes on every 8-12 hours to remove the frost. if the defrost fails due to a bad defrost timer, or heater or thermostat, the refrigerator will malfunction and ultimately the freezer will too.
I am not sure you can solve the problem on your own wiothout the proper tools and familiarity with the equipment.

A COUPLE THINGS U SAY FREEZER IS FINE FRIDGE IS NOT? THE FAN NOISE MAY BE DUE TO ICE BUILD UP DUE TO A DEFECTIVE BAD DEFROST TERMINATOR. WHICH EVENTUALLY WILL BUILD ICE UP IN FREEZER AND FRIDGE? HINDER COLD AIR CIRCULATION. ANOTHER THING TO LOOK AT IS UR FREEZER AND FRIDGE THERMISTORS AND UR COLD CONTROL THERMOSTAT. EVEN UR AIR FLOW DAMPER CONTROL VENT AND KNOB SETTINGS? ARE THEY TO FAR OPEN OR CLOSED? ARE U ABLE TO HEAR THE FAN AND COMPRESSOR RUNNING? ANY CLICKING SOUNDS?

Sounds like u need to clean the condenser coils behind the access panel in the back. When too much lint or dirt builds up it causes the unit to run inefficiently. If that doesn't improve things then it's possible that ur compressor is going bad and not working to it's fullest capabilities and it's about tk go bad. Maytag usually has an extended parts warranty on their compressor so check ur manual to see how long it's covered. A tech can do an amp draw on the compressor to verify if it's running to hard due to a bad winding.

Door gets warm


Hi,

Warm is normal hot is not. Too hot is an indication that the condenser coils are overheating due to being dirty or a bad fan motor. See the link below for details I put together on this. Let me know if it helps.

Fridge side works, but the freezer doesn't


Hi, there is a common fault with these side by side models, the electronics fail in many ways. The first sign of failure is either due to the compressor not working or the 'evaporator' (the cold bit) ices up and air can't pass through it to cool the freezer and fridge.
You can buy a kit to repair the boards for about £30 on ebay
Look for Whirlpool repair
An engineer would charge £200 +
Hope this helps

Not Cole -- fan inside are blowing room temperature air


If after freeing the fan blade it still will not turn, you have a bad fan motor. (almost certainly due to it being restricted.)

That will cetrtainly cause it not to cool properly.

If the fan will not turn after freeing it, it will need to be replaced. If it does turn properly, unplug the fridge for about an hour to let the compressor cool down. Make sure all the coils vents etc are free of dust and dirt. Plug it back in, and if the fan is still operating properly, you should be back down to temp in a few hours max.

Refridgerator side not cold freezer side fine


Difficult to properly diagnois with such a brief description, but try the following as a good first step at correcting the problem. Reset the freezer and fridge thermostat settings at the factory default. Also, check the freezer section to make sure nothing is blocking the cold air supply vent into the fridge, do the same on the fridge side too.

Normally is the freezer is working fine, and the fridge is warm, it can be due to either a blockage of the cold air cross vent by items in either the freezer, fridge, or both, preventing proper cold air flow from the freezer into the fridge. Also, check to see if the cold air vent is not frozen or obstructed, with a fashlight (you;ll need to remove stuff from fridge and freezer to make this possible to check.

If the vent is not obstructed and you can clearly feel cold air passing from the freezer into the fridge, it is possible that the cold air vent control has ceased operating properly and needs to be replaced. Usually though this type of problem is caused by people over stuffing things into the freezer section and blocking the cold air cross over vent. Hope this helps.

Freezer not cold enough


I believe that it is low on freon due to a leak or is dirty underneath and has to be cleaned where the condenser coils are.  If they are dirty it can't disapate the heat that its pulled out of the inside of the unit so it acts like its not working.  That would be the 1st thing to do is to clean the coils it should make a difference in an hour.  If not then you must have a leak in the line somewhere, which would cause the coils to frost up also.  If the large line coming from the compressor has frost on it then it is a leak.  Needs to be repaired with a repairman.  If anything else we can help with let us know.  Thankyou for your question
