Question about Maytag MTB2656G Top Freezer Refrigerator

Two year old Maytag Fridge not cooling

Model MTB2656GE is not cooling. 2years old. light inside comes on so power is to the unit. Fans inside not coming on. Stuck in a defrost cycle? Don't know how to unstick it. Seems too new to have a major component go out. Are there fuses somewhere that could be out? Could there be a thermostat problem? Thanks for your time!

Re: Two year old Maytag Fridge not cooling

Pull the power plug for 15 minutes, then plug back in...same problem? tried adjusting temperature control knob (thermostat)? if yes to both questions, freon has escaped out of loop or faulty thermostat. Attempt force start of compressor with jumper clips: pull the power plug then find the two wires into motor and apply 120 VAC from jumper clips. If it spins, then faulty thermostat.

MY Frigidaire Refrigerator is 2 years old, the Refrigerator is not cold, but the freezer is working fine, what is common fix?

Most will tell you the freon is bad. but i have found in most cases the freezer works but fridge doesnt.. I have found the solution to be a bad cooling fan on the fridge it self. if the fan is not cooling the fridge will not cool. You could pull the fridge out and see if you can see the fan turn it on hi and when the fridge kicks in see if the fan or fans are working.. dust can cause them to slow or stop.

Replace compressor or buy new fridge

Check all else before condemning the compressor. Condenser clean, fans working, defrosted etc. Compressor change is expensive and the unit may be beyond economic repair if over a couple of years old. See how much a new one is before calling out service.

I cleaned condenser coils with vacum, emptied the defrost tray and vacumed all the dust from the unit, unplugging first of course. Now it is working just fine. Thank you fixya for all your help and postings.

I still can't find the model number anyplace on the unit. This unit is only 2 1/2 year old but no model number to be found on the unit. But

Refrigerator not getting cold - freezer still pretty cold - perhaps not all the way

Defrost system problem; Check back wall of freezer for frost buildup which indicates the defrost problem.

GSH22JSRSS not cooling off

I had EXACTLY the same problem. GE came out today and fixed it. My unit is 2years old. The control board in the rear of your fridge is faulty (mine had 2 blown capacitors) and needs to be replaced. They told me I'd have to pay a $69 service charge to have the tech take a look. He came in with the control board in hand, replaced it in about 10mins and it's cooling fine now. Best of all, he only charged me $2 for the parking meter! Hope this helps. BTW, the tech told me it would've cost me $350 if I'd called another service company, so give GE a call... Best of luck, God Bless.
