Maytag Refridgerator and not cooling or freezing

I have a Maytag refridgerator (mod# MSD2651HEW) that is not cooling or freezing. I heard what sounded like and electical short followed by the smell of burning wires/electronics.

I checked the kitchen and outlets but everything seemed ok, the refridgerator seemed to be working. The next morning there was a puddle of water on the kitchen floor that orginated from the melting ice in my freezer.

Fans barely seem to work with a very low chill.

Any ideas?

    I think that maybe the problem, the relay looks ok but you can smell the burnt wiring, I can hear some rattling when I shake it similar to the sound a borken bulb makes.



    I already called the manufacture to see if my fridge was one of the recalls, I call again to be sure about that that part.



    I appreciate the help, I will let you know the results.

Sounds as if perhaps the overload replay has burnt up on the compressor, you can see it by removing the back cover, unplug unit and remove the starter from the side of compressor. if burnt up or melted youll need to replace it.. before you do i would call the manufacture with model and serial theyve experienced issue with some of these depending on model and serail they may cover repair

Hi,
You just happened to catch the freezer in the defrost mode... that is very normal and it should stop in a half hour or so and go back to normal operation...

MAYTAG REFRIDGERATOR NOT COOLING


Check to see if the evaporator fan is blowing. Sometimes removing the back panel to expose the fan and hand turning it can make it come back on. If this doesn't work then the fan is bad. Also make sure that there is good circulation to the fridge side. Food can sometimes block air flow.

Refridgerator problem


Not sure about your model, but most of these style side by side refridgerators use the cold air from the freezer to cool the refridgerator. Sounds like your "flapper" valve is broken. At the top left in the refridgerator there should be plastic shroud. Remove it and your flapper valve should be under it. You will most likely find the flap broken off of it. You may have success using epoxy to glue it or you may have to replace the valve assembly.
Good luck.
