You can use cooking oil or wd-40 to go around the rubber seal of the door especially near the hinge to make sure it has a tight closure

Noticed excessive fog in freezer, is this normal?


Hello
Could be a sign that the door seals need to be replaced.Sometimes maybe a door hinge has become loose.
On days where the humidity is high this moisture can get caught in the refridge,causing fog.

Have a look at the door seals also try cleaning the ares where the door seal meets the metal of the refrige.There may be a moisture control setting also on the control panel,if so turn it on.
So to answer you..no its not abnormal to have fog for a short period of time.

Our maytag refridg is freezing the contents. thermostat set to 40 degrees. Any other suggestions to try to fix this?


Does this model have seperate controls for top and bottom? No?
Make sure checking inside the refrigerator compartment, that the air passageways are not blocked by tall or plastic covered objects. They will block air circulation and cause the automatic controls to detect temperature incorrectly. That being said, also check the door to see if it is sealing correctly. A bad seal will cause warm air to be drawn in, excessive ice may form behind the panel in the back from humidity and you may experience the opposite problem, not enough cooling in some areas and excessive in others.
Does the machine also include an ice maker... check that as there may be a sensor near that location, himidity may congeal the ice so as to form a big block - blocking air flow.... all caused by a leaky door seal.

The gasket on the right hand French door is slightly torn, so I bought a replacement gasket. It's arrived, but I have no clue how to replace the gasket.


The gasket is easy to replace. Remove bins and shelves set them aside. Next at the top right hand corner remove the door trim cover pull it straight out and set it aside. Note the tabs on the inside of the trim are fragile. Peel back the gasket at the top forward edge and bottom frward edge and you will locate a hinge. Use a small screw driver to pop these hinges out. Pull out the gasket on that side first and the whole seal comes on out of there. The hinge slides out of the old seal. Just snap yer new back in. Do on door at a time. The trim pieces for each door are different. Snap your door trim back and check for propah opening and closing of door. Then party on!

One of the hinges on the door seal has come off and the door will not close properly. Model #KFCS22EVMS This model has the sealing mechanism on the left door where a small panel slides into the body...


Open the little metal screw on the larger hinge that is between the top and bottom hinges. This will allow to pull the seal all the way out. There is wiring behind that middle hinge so watch not to damage it. Then , you can realign the 3 hinges in their place and replace the screw in its position. It takes a little bit of patience to realign the 3 hinges but it's very doable.

Right door pops ajar open when left side is shut


you need to replace the seal on that side of the door due to it being worn. The easiest way to replace the seal is to lift the seal up from the inside and you can see the little bolts (1/4 inch head) on the inside. These bolts run through a metal strip that in turn holds the seal down. Once you loosen (do not remove) these bolts you can pull slightly and the seal will come out from the metal flashing strip holding it down. Look at the seal and you will notice a small hump where it sat on the inside of the hump on the metal flashing when you see it you'll understand what I mean. Once the older seal is removed the new seal is ready for replacement. Hint: If you let the new seal sit out in the sun for an hour or so it will become soft and pliable and much easier to work with.
Reinstallation is just the opposite of removal.
To make sure you get the correct seal take the model and serial numbers to a appliance parts house and they should have one for replacement.

Good Luck on your repairs hope this helped

Maytag french door bottom freezer (does NOT have water/ice dispenser on door). There is moisture on the door seal - the movable piece - which ends up dripping on the floor every time you open the door. ...


You have a seal problem around the door or the heat strip inside the frame to prevent this is not working. Or both. So you are sure the model is the MFD2560HES. Let me know if you want me to help you solve this, Sea Breeze
