Question about Maytag MFD2561HE Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

2 Answers

Freezer works 3 degrees; refrigerator does not 75 degrees

Have a two year old Maytag French Door Model: MFD 2561 HES 
Some suggest that a flapper may be stuck, there may be a second fan for the refrigerator not working.  I cleaned the dirt from below the unit, it was not that bad.
I have not gotten behind the unit as yet.

Your freezer has a dc volt cont motor in back and they will quit from time to time and will need to be replaced / move freezer out and pull off back cover and check to see if motor is running, if not set a small fan behind to blow air on unit till it can be replaced to get temp back ,,, if that isn't the problem contact me with more info and i will be glad to help you / please remember to leave a rating / thanks / larryyb

    Check also that the re is no ice on the coil at the back, when you get insufficient cooling on the fridge, this is often because of the evaporator system located at the back of the fridge, or a problem with the condenser.

    Try performing a complete overnight defrost, and then cleaning all the coils at the back and at the bottom of the fridge from dust or dirt.

    Often the problem disappear after cleaning and defrosting.

    If this does not work, then there is probably a fault concerning the evaporatior system.

Maytag MFD2561HES Freezer Door Locked, How do I get it open?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Here is the users manual that is probably inside the door you can not get open:

https://www.maytag.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OCManualsLiteratureSearchResultView?catalogId=10562&langId=-1&storeId=10212

Find your model number and download the maual. The last 3 figits HES there is a problem with the number you passed. I am using this manual as a reference:
https://www.maytag.com/digitalassets/MLPDF/User%20Instructions%20-%20W10175446.pdf

If your unit has the mini handle on the top right or top left gently lift and swing the door open. If you have the lone horizontal handle on the front of the freezer door it just pulls open and slides out.

If this is a NEW unit... you must remove the shipping tape from the door (2 to 3 places) to get it open.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Good day,
If it's new (under one year old) then all components are under factory warranty. Call your selling dealer for a warranty service call. It should be free.

Maytag French Door MFD2561HEB water dispenser not working


We had the same issues with the water freezing and called a technician out. He added some extra insulation installed around the water lines inside the refrigerator and we also keep our frig at 40 degrees Fahrenheit, slightly above the manufacturers default setting. Hope this helps.

This sounds like you have a Maytag Ice2O. You need to find out if that cound is a relay/overoad failure on the compressor or the compressor going out. I can say from experience that some of those have a tecumsie comprossor in them and the do tend to fail. If you hear a loud electrical humming sound coming from the compressor and your getting a warm up then you need to record this sound on some kind of sound recorder and call a Whirlpool warrenty certified tech. out to look at it if it's less than 5 years old from perchase date then Whirlpool will pick up the part and labor bill of a compressor installation also check your owners manual for warrenty details. Hit me up let me know.
