SOURCE: maytag side by side defrost problem

The ADC has failed and or the defrost thermostat has failed. It has a cal rod heater. They usually do not fail, but check continuity on it anyway. The ADC is in the control panel on the back right corner.

SOURCE: Freezer works ref does not

That is your problem the Freezer Fan supplies air for the freezer as well as the refrigerator. If the rpm are not high enough the frig does not get cool. I just replaces this fan and that was the solution

SOURCE: evaporator coil freezing, replaced main control

It is possible you have a defective fan motor in the condenser area or evaporator area. Sometimes when they become defective they will run for a while and just warm up and stop while the compressor continues to run. I learned that one on four costly returns to the home. The cost was to me not the customer. Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have a 3 yr old maytag ref/w/bottom drawer freezer. We have noticed water/ice under the freezer basket. Sometimes it is thawing and comes outonto the floor.Any ideas what causes this? I have not found...

Have you tried the following steps: 1) check that the gaskets are free of any damage, dirt, or ice. The door gaskets should seal perfectly on closing. 2) Or: turn off the ref, safely guard your frozen food, let the ref thaw totally and more. The purpose is to eliminate any undesired icing. If no succes and your problem gets worse call for help.

Maytag refrigerator not cold.

do you have a full frost pattern (coating) on freezer coils or see a ice ball, if ice ball Leak in system or bad valve in compressor. not worth fixing. go on (repair clinic .com).
you have a dampener and a fan to let the cold air go to all the areas check to make sure fan is running push in light switch in freezer and llisten for fan could be problem or no power to fan from main control board.
Dampener is flapper door that lets cold air from freezer go into ref. section
are your doors sealed, gaskets, frapper between door on ref section closing.
also your return air ducts need to be clear of ice, is your ice maker working that means that it is below 10 degees and repairable.

Maytag fridge not cooling

If the ref or freezer is too warm and you turn the dial to make it colder the compressor should come on. If the ref or freezer is not cold like you say the compressor should be on all the time. You should hear it, but you can definitely feel it and it should be very warm after a short while.
If the compressor does not get warm unplug the ref with the compressor running and plug it back in immediately. A good compressor should not start up right away.
If it is running and not getting warm and does start right up after unplugging it and plugging it back in it is inefficient and not compressing the freon gas enough and therefore not cooling enough.
The fan in the freezer should be running as should the fan under the refrigerator.
The condenser should be warm and the fan should be blowing[drawing] air across it when the compressor is on.
You don\'t repair compressors and to recharge them correctly is expensive.

Bought A/C in 2006. Used 1 yr - worked OK. Idle for 3 years. Installed this week - runs but does not cool!

Make sure there is no restrictions in the coils front or back. If the units compressor is running and was just low on freon it will ice up on the inside coil. If the compressor is not running it could be the temp switch or the capacitor. Make sure you have 220v at the plug in if its a 220 unit. Maytags are good units so look for hits on the coils that happened in installation or while stored if you see a obviouse dent ect... and its dirty or oily you may have popped a line and lost your freon. I hope this helps goodluck

Not cooling

It sounds like it needs freon,you will have to buy a saddle valve to have a service port to do this,and a can of freon,if you know someone who can do this,it needs to be done with gauges,so not to lock the compressor up.

Last couple of years if our thermostat is set below 74 the ac will freeze up. The last 2 years we had it checked out and were told that 1)coils might be going out and 2) needs more freon. Once freon was...

If your going to have all the freon taken out,this current tech needs to find the leak.

Clearly from what you have said the unit has a freon leak.Freon is put in by ounces or pounds depending on the size of the unit,then you need to get the correct operating pressures.Coils do not go bad they either get full of dirt or get a hole in them.

An 8 yr old unit is a tough call,surley a new one will probably save some electric and come with a warranty.I would get some quotes on a new one,then see how much i could spend.

Gladiator ref is not cooling properly

Check to see if there is cold air coming from the freezer to the refridgerator side through the vent holes The compressor maybe getting weak or the freon charge maybe low. Does the unit run a long time before it shuts off? 50 degrees is not cold enough for a freezer. You should be around 32 or less.

Sounds like you have a freon leak or your compressor has stopped working. You will probably need a service tech. If it is out of freon, don't let them just add more freon, make them find and repair the leak first. Good Luck.
