Question about GE GDS18LBR Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Maytag PBF 2255 HEW refrigerator Freezes up, won't defrost

How do I determine whether this problem is caused by a defective JAZZ board controller, or a failed evaporator fan? It could be either I'm told, and I already know the defrost heater works.

    Fan does run, sometimes if not constantly, so I guess that's eliminated as an issue. Thanks.

To rule out the evap fan.

The evap fan should run all the time except when in the defrost mode.

Fridge not cooling


Look inside the freezer and at the rear panel do you see a layer of frost building up on that panel? I have a feeling that your refrigerator is not defrosting and this will cause the fresh food section to warm or appear to warm first. The=> 2304099 Defrost Control Board

This defrost control board can be found inside the fresh food section and behind the controls. If the defrost control board is defective it will cause the symptons you decribed here. This part controls fans, compressor and defrost so I need you to unplug your refrigerator and examine both sides of the 2304099 Defrost Control Board for signs of heat or burn marks. Sometimes not always this part will show burn marks and still be defective. Let me know what you find so I can answer your questions, Thanks

Defrost trey and drain keeps freezing and water leaks inside


Your auto defrost cycle is not functioning.    The refrig will work for a few days and then freeze up again.   You will need to determine the cause, from a defective defrost heater, defective defrost bimetal, or Defrost timer  (mechanical or electronic control board).

After many repairs to my maytag mzd2766ges, my fridge side cools for a while and then it stops until a new repairs


Hi,

If either door is open, the airflow will be wrong. Do you see a lot of "snow" or frost building up at the bottom of the freezer rear wall?
Do you hear a fan running in the freezer compartment?
Where are your controls set?
Is the fan back by the compressor running?
Have you checked the air duct at the bottom behind the lower crisper drawers?


The main reason for this type of problem is that the (evaporator) coils below the fan would be iced up.
So, i need you to do this,
1.unscrew the back panels on the freezer side and note whether the evaporator coils were all iced up.
2. If it is iced up, then defrost the coils and then replace the defrost board in the refrigerator.

Regrigerator will be back to normal . Defrost board is located on top of refrigertor side underneath the temp control unit.
Easy repair once you remove the temp control cover. Unscrew the defrost board and plug new connection in.

Post your comments about how things turned up.
Thanx for using fixya,
Cheers.

Defrost Problem


the first thing to check is the defrost heating element, then the defrost limit switch, if good, then its probably the main circuit board.

Maytag MSD2356 Freezer frosts up quickly, fridge warm


If you jumped the defrost board and it went into defrost then that board is bad. I assume by "freezes up" you are talking about the evaporator is frosting up? That defrost board puts it into defrost automatically. If you have to jump it to get it go into defrost then the board is not doing its job.
