Question about Maytag MCD2257HES Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

Unit is not coming on.

I had a problem with a plug on the same circut and had to mess with the breaker several times to get all the plugs working. As I was checking plugs I noticed the refrigerator was not on. Its plug is working and I get tone when I hold my tester to the digital temperature buttons but they are not lighting up, now lights nothing. Any ideas?

    Thank you for the help. I could not find a reset but did discover a GFI prior to that plug went bad. Once I replaced that plug it worked. I appreciate your help. Merry Christmas!

Air conditioner was working great suddenly STOPPED working...cant turn it back on.


Hello
Is there a reset button located near the plug? If so reset it.

Check your circut breaker for the outlet its plugged into also.

If your using a remote to start this unit check that the battery is good in the remote,it may only work with a remote.

I have had the Whirlpool GOld dehumidifier for 4 years. It was working great. Recently, I noticed that it stopped working. When plugged it, it trips my GFI socket. I have tried various outlets and checked...


Obviously, there is an electrical short within the unit. Should it be repaired? Yes, if you want continue using it. But, is the cost of troubleshooting, finding the necessary part and repairing it worth it? Most of the time, the cost to repair a dehumidifier is about the same, as what a new one would cost. Now, if purchased an extended warranty, when you originally bought the unit 4 years ago, then you're probably covered for the repair.

In the end, the decision is yours to make.

Unit will start and run for 5 seconds, then will blow a circut breaker on 20A. circut. This is a model AD75USTO Serial # QU2660438 AKA Whirlpool gold energy star


Hopefully, it's not a problem inside the unit that's causing the circuit breaker to trip. Is there another electrical appliance plugged into the same outlet or on that circuit that is ON and draws 15 amps of power? If so, that's the problem. If that's not the case, turn the circuit breaker OFF and remove the outlet cover, so you can inspect the receptacle and it's wiring. A loose wiring connection or a broken or cracked receptacle could be the issue. If you don't find any damage reassemble the outlet and turn the circuit breaker back ON. Instead of plugging in the dehumidifier, plug in a lamp or something similar and turn it ON. Leave it on for more than 5 minutes to see if the circuit breaker trips again. If it does, you'll know the problem is either with the outlet receptacle or the circuit breaker. If doesn't, plug in the dehumidifier (Make sure the Master ON/OFF Switch on the unit is in the OFF position, before plugging it in. Then turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls. If the circuit breaker trips again, the problem is in the dehumidifier. You will need to call Whirlpool Customer Care, as it's an internal electrical issue.

In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual, I have included a link to it, that you can download and print for future reference. http://www.kitchenaid.ca/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%201188927.pdf

I hope what information I have provided to you, will help you trouble shoot and solve the problem.

Old 2nd frig stopped working, no cooling, no compressor running, only light in compartment. Any breakers or things to check?


Of course check breakers, then unplug unit from wall for several hours (let unit compressor cool) then plug back in. If after plugging it in you continue to hear a "clicking" sound on rear of unit either start device on compressor is bad or compressor its self is gone.

Wont turn on after electricity went off, was on at the time of the black out and now will do nothing


Check your connections. Is the breaker tripped to that outlet? Is the TV plugged into a power strip ( if it is try replacing the strip). Sometimes simply unplugging the unit and waiting just a few seconds and plugging it back in works. If none of these things work, Im afraid it may have fried the internal circuts.

My microwave has no power


Is the unit plugged into the outlet.
Check to see if the outlet has power by plugging in a working light.
If no power check fuse/circut breaker.

Dehumidifier


See if you have a grounded circut in the appliance. Check 1 flat to your volt ohm meter. Connect the other probe from meter to the other flat. And you should get a reading of resistance. Next connect 1 probe to the flat then the other to ground. A reading - indicates nothing until the next step. Now try the other flat to the ground?

1 Of these flats are connected to the nutural and possible feed through or back to ground in the appliance. The other one though should not read to ground. If you get a ground reading on both flat of the plug in someting is together that should not be.

If you dont get a readign try plugging in at a different outlet. A circut that has too much load will cause circut breakes to over heat and trip.

If it runs at a different outlet make sure its on a different breaker. If its on the same breaker it will probably start acting up again.

DOes this help? If so please rate me as high as possible If not please restate your problem to help me understand it better. Thnaks for using Fixya and Good Luck.

Circut breakers


Is it after it has ran for a while or tripping every time it comes on? If after it runs awhile check your wire tightness at the breaker and at the unit. Loose wiring will heat up a braker and trip it. Also check to see that the rating of the unit and the breaker are matched.
