Question about Sub-Zero 650 / O Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Compressor very hot + water leaking

I have just bought a second hand maytag side by side fridge. Model number GC2225GEKB. It keeps cold in both fridge and freezer but when l change the temperature settings, water leaks from back left hand side. l have taken the back off and noticed the copper pipe going from compressor to freezer is iced up and the compressor is really hot to touch. Is this normal? l have a 28 day warranty with it so l want to make sure its working properly or should l return? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

This is not normal. The coolant charge is low which means it leaked out some where. Return it.

My kenmore side-by-side refrigerator is less than 4-years old. freezer works but refrigerator stde does not get cold. ice accumulates on lower vent in refrigerator.


all it does is the evap fan blows cold air from the freezer into the fridge section and returns through the bottom air vent,so if there's ice there most likely one of the doors was left open,check the freezer for frozen water droplets on packages or on the walls and shelves of the machine,if you don't see that open the freezer door,if you don't hear the fan blowing you could have a bad evap fan motor.if the fan is blowing in the freezer from the bottom remove the second draw or bin and put your hand on the back inside wall of the freezer,if there's frost or like snow on the back wall you have a defrost problem,bad defrost thermostat,defrost heater,timer or board depending on what model you have,if the fan is blowing and you don't see any problems that i talked about you could have a bad damper,on some machines there's a damper door that opens and closes to let cold air into the fridge section,if it's bad it won't open and no cold air can blow in from the freezer,if you think the door was left open,remove anything that's in the way,in the freezer side and the fridge side,shut the machine down or unplug it and with a hair dryer melt out the ice,don't keep the heat in one place for to long,you can melt the vent if it's plastic or styrofoam,after you think it's melted out start the machine and put your hand up in the left hand corner in the fridge section and see if you can feel any cold air blowing in,there could be ice up there too,next time send the model number so i can look up your model,on a side by side you'll find the tag on the right hand side wall in the fridge up near the ceiling or on the ceiling near the light.hope this helps,if you have another fridge you could move the food and just shut the fridge down with the doors open and let it melt out on it's own overnight.good luck

I have a Maytag refrigerator similar to the current model (GS2625GEKS), I purchased mine in 2003. Serial number unknown. All of a sudden my freezer is way too cold and my refrigerator is not cold enough....


If the number is similar we will have to go with possibilities. Sound like the auto damper has frozen itself shut between the fresh food and freezer compartments. Some are controlled electrically some manually and others are controlled with a thermostat probe. Your thermostat for one side could be defective and not allowing the damper to open. Your refrigerator must have the correct model number to proceed. What I need you to do is look for the vent through the rear of the refrigerator compartment and sometimes leads directly from the same wall as freezer. Many Maytag brands fall under same series and model similarities. The serial number is not as important to the service Tech as the model number. Look around the door frame near floor and kick plate.I can help but I will need the correct model number, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Maytag fridge


Without knowing the type of fridge(side by side, freezer on top etc.) all I can offer is this: Somewhere between the freezer and the fridge there's an opening thermostatically controlled to transfer cold air from freezer to the fridge. Most have a fan to move the air. So either the fan (if so equipped) stopped, and need to replace, or opening is stuck closed, or plugged.
If freezer is working fine, this is the only problem I can think of.
Hope this helps
