Question about Maytag MSD2454G Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a Maytag MSD2454GRW side by side fridge. The fridge is room temp, freezer fridge temp. I have defrosted the ciols in teh back of the freezer with a hairdryer, unplugged it and let it set then plugged it back in. I also vacuumed the back fan and component area. Plugged it back in..it worked...for a few days. Now the ice has melted and the fridge is back to room temp, but I have a lot of frost/ice down the back of the panel in the freezer. What could the problem be??
The most likely fault is a problem with the defrost cycle. The most likely is the defrost heater which should be a solid bar which is located directly underneath the coil. If you are capable then you can generally unplug the connectors for the heater and check that you have a resistance across the ends if the heater is faulty it will be open circuit. If it is not open circuit then it could be the defrost sensor or defrost timer at fault. You can also generally tell if the heater is warped or cracked. Hope this is of some help.
