Question about Maytag Refrigerators

MAYTAG SIDE BY SIDE MSD2650KEU

Entire unit is not able to get cold. Freezer is not freezing and refrigerator is not cool. Unit is plugged in and running. This seemed to have happened overnight. The unit is about 10 years old. Should I replace it or is it worth it to find a repairman to fix it?

    The compressor doesn't seem to be doing anything. I removed the cover last night and cleaned it out. I cleaned out the freezer and fridge. We left it unplugged all night. I plugged it in before I left this morning. Not sure if we'll have any change. I think the compressor is finished.

    I don't think so. Pull the relay off of the compressor and shake it. If it rattles, it is bad and will need to be replaced. Here is the relay to order.http://bit.ly/TVEarX Be sure you have the unit unplugged first!

    I removed the relay and it was melted where it was connected to the compressor. Bad?

    Oh yea! It's bad! Here is the relay kit to order.http://bit.ly/TVEarX This will get you running again. This refrigerator compressor starting device includes the relay, overload with start capacitor. Keep me posted!

Your condenser coil is frozen up with condensate...need to fix the defrost system, most likely it is the control sub module.

SOURCE: Whirlpool runs, but freezer not freezing and frig not freezing

If the compressor is running but the unit is not cooling you may have lost the refrigerant.  See if the condenser coils at the back or bottom are hot.  If they are only warm then the refrigerant is low and can be recharged.  Service tech should check for leak in coolant system.

is it frozen up? do you have any air flow thru the air tunnel from the freeze to the fridge? Check your air flow with the door switch pushed in. also check to see if the damper door opens... 1) if it is iced up you have a defrost problem. most likely a defrost timer. Turn off or unplug untill all the ice has melted off the evaporator back of the freezer..plug back in and it will work fine untill the ice builds up again. if this work you do have a defrost problem.. if not let me know and we can go deeper...

SOURCE: GE Monogram side by side not cooling

I had the same problem. GE Man said that since the unit had been allowed to warm so much, we needed to empty it, unplug it, and totally leave it alone for 24 hours for any excess water to drain out. Then, we needed to plug it in and let it run with NO ITEMS INSIDE AND NO OPENING OF THE DOORS AT ALL for 48 hours. After that, we started using it again and it was Perfect!! I thought it was a lost cause, so this worked and didn't cost me a dime!!

also check defrost timer,defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Why is my haier refridger not getting cold


There are alot of things that can cause no cooling...
a stuck tstat, will cause it to freeze up(electronic control)
a broken defrost timer will cause ice build up from no defrosting
out, or low on freon charge
inefficient compressor
door gaskets leaking
light switch not cutting off the light inside the cooling or freezing compartment
a bad fan motor(door) switch

I dont know how your unit works, but most only have one evaporator in entire unit..and its in the freezer compartment, and the cooling side gets it (coldnest) from the freezer compartment..with a door flap that alows cold air from the freezer to enter the cooler side.
Hope this helps..

Freezer not freezing


Check the back wall of the freezer section for signs of frost build-up. If the freezer coil is frozen from a fault in the defrost system your refrigerator will be the first to show signs of not cooling.
