Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a 5 yead old Maytag, side by side, refrigerator. Suddenly It has begun to thaw. I will admit though that it was packed to the brim with food. Could a packed refrigerator cause this problem or is it more like the coil is going bad?

The problem may be solved but I still need to watch it for a few more days. The solution was to remove the back freezer panels and use a hair dryer to defrost the coils. The freezer works well but the refrigerator still seems to be slighly warmer than before (may be my imagination). Anyway the liquids are cold to the taste so I should be ok. If the refrigerator gets warmer, in the next few days, I will change the defrost board.

Thanks for your response!

your defrost heater around the coils is open and can no longer heat,or the adaptive defrost timer or defrost thermistor are defective located in the refrige control panel behind the temp controls and the thermistor is located on the defrost heater assy

The freezer is warming up


If you found something lodged in the door that may have kept it open for a while, i suspect frost formed on the coils behind the panel. Frost will not let air pass through the coils to the refrigerator side. This is one of the most common problems there is. If you look through the louvers on the rear panel that is for sure your problem. It most likely just needs thawed out. After it is thawed out, your normal defrosting routine will take over again and hopefully you will be trouble free again.

Does freezer cool like the cold food section? Did this suddenly happen, and frozen food began to thaw?  Most freezers control the cooling in the cold food section. The freezer must work fine before the cold food section will work fine. Let us know more, Thanks JT
