Question about Maytag MSD2756G Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

I have a Maytag side-by-side MSD2756GEB that quit cooling.

Everything in freezer thawed, and refrigerator side is no longer cold.  There is also a smell coming from behind fridge that is like something in compressor unit(?) has burned out.  Obviously, I need a repair man.  Any suggestions as to what may actually be the culprit that needs repair?

Sounds like either the fan motor or the compressor. go ahead and open upo the bottom baclk panel and see if the fan is running or if the compressor is. could be just a burned wire.

Freezeer and fridge quit working


It's possible that the Adaptive Defrost Control part number 61005988 has your compressor shut down. It is also possible the temperature control is defective. Jumping the 2 wires behind the control will answer that. And its also possible that the start capacitor, start relay and overload has failed on the compressor. I would like you to unplug and examine the ADC and also need to pull away from wall and remove the cover over the compressor so you can feel the top of compressor. Is it warm, cool or too hot to keep your hand there? Sea Breeze

Possible defrost problem. If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air.Since you've already replaced the motherboard Checkdefrost heater, defrost thermostat

Maytag plus refrigetor not cooling model msd2756geb


after removing all of the freezer racks and shelf pull the 4 1/4 inch screws out at the bottom back panel of the freezer. pull the 2 panels off and slide them out strait down to the floor of the freezer. if your freezer coils are full of snow and ice then the fan cant pull any cold air up into the refrigerator.your problem is probably th defrost adaptive timer. if the heater ohms out at around 20 to 30 ohms it is ok. next ohm the 2 white wires at the plug this is checking the thermostat it shoud ohm out at aproximately 240 k ohms if those 2 things check out the problem is the adaptive defrost timer it is in the ceiling behind the temperature controls on yhe right side.
