Question about Maytag 25.6 cu. ft. Wide-By-Side Refrigerator with PuriClean II Ice and Water

1 Answer

Refrigerator is not cold but freezer is operating at full capacit

I have a wide by side Maytag refrigerator freezer with an ice maker and water dispenser. The freezer side is running fine, the refrigerator side is not cold. I bumped the control all the way to 9 just to see if it would start cooling and it isn't doing anything....is there anything I might be able to do to repair it?

    Mine is an MSD2756DE and is doing the same thing. A repairman told my wife that cranking up the controls will only prevent the freezer from working properly or efficiently and should be set at 3 for freezer and 7 for fridge and monitored for 24 hrs. before calling a repairman. I am sorry to say this has not resulted in my fridge returning to normal operation and I am still waiting to hear back from him.

    Same problem only when I move slide the setting knobs all the way from 1 to 9 a few times and leave them at 3 (freezer) and 8 (fridge) the fridge side cools to 40 deg. for about two days then returns to 48 - 52 deg.

    If the defrost circiut or timer are ok, is it possible that there is a problem within the damper itself such as wrn springs or something?

Most refrigerators have a damper door that is controlled by a knob that lets some air from the freezer compartment into the refrigerator compartment there is also a fan that blows this air into the refrigerator. Sometimes when the defrost timer quits and ice forms it causes this fan to break or quit .Please understand the original problem was probably caused by the adaptive defrost circuit or defrost timer which is still failing Also the unit needs to be defrosted completely and the evaporator fan checked for proper operation.there is a way to put the unit in the defrost mode.Usually there is a diagram on Maytags stuffed under the thermostat panel .Make sure to unplug when probing or testing or have knowledge of how to work on live circuits .

My Maytag wide-by-side refrigerator -- problem with the refrigerator side not being cold, but the freezer side is cold...What do you think needs to be fixed on the "refrigerator" side? Many thanks.


check the vents that separate the two refrigerator sides for good air flow: (no blockage, dead fan etc.) as there is only one compressor circulating freon coolant gas through both sides; cooling temperature is acheived by adjusting air flow vents (the cold control usually is not at fault.)

Maytag side by side, msd2456de will not make ice, I have water that dispenser works fine, I believe freezer is cold enough what could be the probem?


If water is not getting to the ice maker the fill ice maker with tap water. Wait until it freezes and dumps and then replace the dual water control valve on back near floor. Sea Breeze

Same thing happened to me. I unplugged the refrigerator, plugged it back in and it worked. I guess the computer system reset itself. Easy fix.
