Maytag refrigerator Model MZD2766GEW

My Maytag fridge is 5 years old, side-by-side. Yesterday, I noticed that the freezer is working but the right side with the fridge does not. I checked everything I know: it plugged in and is turned on. What could be wrong? Val

    Maytag makes sorry refrigerators which are very expensive and go bad really quickly. I paid $2000 for mine and three years later the right side which is the fridge side is hot and stoped cooling and I paid a repairman to fix it and a month later I had the same problem again. Maytag should recall all these side by side refrigerator model MZD2766 GES and pay people their money back.

check in the freezer side and look at the back wall and see if there is any build up of frost, your coil may be block, so no air flowing through the coil, your unit may not defrosting, you need to check the defrost heater,the defrost timer or the defrost thermostat one of these part can be defective

5 year old Maytag Wide by Side Refrigerator side not cooling


Same issue with my 6 yr old Maytag side-by-side model #MSD2756GEW. Turned out it was caused by a faulty circuit board. This circuit board is located in the upper right fridge section. Apparently these boards are sensitive to power surges (which we have here in central Texas from time to time.) When the circuit board is fried, it makes a noise like a fan blade malfunctioning and it stops the auto defrost feature in the freezer from working. So the freezer ices up at the back, and the ice prevents the cold air from reaching the fridge section.

Our circuit board (which we thought was a fan) made ominous noises for a few months. (The noise would last only a minute or so and stop shortly after we opened a door). Eventually we noticed that the fridge wasn't as cold and the freezer had snow in it. Finally the board stopped making noise and about a week or so afterward we noticed that the milk had spoiled and the fridge wasn't very cold. The food in the freezer side pretty solidly frozen, thankfully.

In addition to replacing the circuit board, the fridge had to be de-iced or it would not work properly. I put it all frozen into a large camping cooler where it stayed for several hours. I opened the freezer doors and put table fan and pointed a hobby light which gets quite hot, at the back of the freezer. Within 3 hours, the ice had melted significantly so I could see through the grate at the back of the freezer. This really great technician named Tracy, made a special trip to the parts store to get the circuit board and came back within a couple hours, bringing with him a steamer. He removed the back panel inside the freezer section (the coils are behind there) and used the steamer to melt the rest of the ice before he left.

Tracey, who works for a local appliance repair company, told me that about 4 years ago, Maytag started making their fridges with built-in surge protection, so the circuit boards apparently don't get fried on the newer models as they do on my 6 yr old model. He recommended that we put plug the fridge into a heavy-duty surge protector - which we are definitely going to do.

Jenn Aire side by side - freezer and fridge not working


Yes the compressor could be stuck but it's also possible the PTC could have failed - each will show the same symptoms. If you're a tech you can check the compressor or you can just replace the PTC also known as "relay". Part # 12002784 should run somewhere around $60.
