Water leaking into fridge

I am not sure what the piece is called but the plastic housing for the temp control knobs and the light runs from the front of the fridge ceiling to the back then curves to point downwards. It has started dripping water out of this piece at a pretty good rate. No problems keeping things cold just a lot of water. I do not have the ice maker hooked up so there is no water coming in.

Check to see if the gasket is ripped somewhere on the fridge door this will allow hot air to seep in and cause moisture to form

Maytag bottom freezer refrigerator, leaks from the bottom.


Hi,
As with all electrical, before you touch make sure the power is off! Taje the plug out, and make sure it stays out! Tie a plastic bag around the plug! Now, empty the fridge and freezer, and defrost, you can use hot water bottles and gave the hearing on in te house, be careful using hair dryers, you can warp or crack the plastic inner housing of your fridge or freezer.
Check on you tube or the Internet it Manuel whee the drain hole is! Get a funnel and out boiling water down, just in case there is any ice here. Then with a piece of wire (old cable )prod clean this drain hole. Check the internal plastic of the freezer for cracks or damage, use a torch and your hand. If cracks or damage is visible, you are safer with a bee freezer! Remember water and electrics can be fatal!
Think safe, be safe, remember it could be your child or partner killed just by touching the freezer if the water and ekectrics are causing a short. If there is no damage or cracks then plug in, and jet the freezer freeze, check for Leaks, if you have no leaks then happy days! If you still have leaks.......off to the electrical shops...... But to save shoe leather and time, have a look online, write prices down, see what warranties you are getting. Good luck

Ranco k series


You need to take that control to a refrigeration supply house and get the proper control replacement. Those are factory set. One is differential and the other is set for temp. The adjustments in the field just don't stay put and will fail after messing with them. Ranco has a book that the supply house has that will give you what you need and the part is generally on the shelf. Hope this helps and good luck.

Refrigerator keeps getting colder and colder. I reset the temp every time I open it, but it goes back to being too cold. Is registering 24! GE Profile side by side with ice and water through the door.


Hi,

Most times this is a bad cold control, but there are other things to check for. Make sure the condenser fan is working and the coils are not covered with dust. A separated heat exchanger ( small capillary tubing soldered to the large suction line ) can separate from one another and make the fridge run too long. - tape tubing back together. A poor working evaporator fan motor could also make the fridge run too long and freeze - replace the fan motor. An inefficient compressor or refrigeration system could make the fridge run too long and freeze - have a service tech check this out. A misaligned control settings, make sure the air damper and cold control have not been bumped and are out of normal settings. Stuck open air diffusers or air dampers are becoming more and more common for allowing too much air to be blown into the fresh food section and freezing things. On all frost free fridge's the freezer temp air is blown into the fresh food section, if you have "easy" to freeze items ( eggs, veggies in water, etc ) in front of or under where the freezer temp air comes out, they could freeze - store them in a different spot. Doors not closing properly making the fridge run too long is something else to check for the plastic air deflector at the top rear of the refrigerator, As you know, the deflector directs the freezer air toward the front of the frig and the rear of the cold control, which is now functioning properly.
Hoping that this will help to solve the problem...

After the rinse cycle is finished. Water appears


The filter may be loose or not on or perhaps it could be a disconnected hose to the filter.
Unplug the washer.
Unscrew the lower panel on your washer (There are 3 star headed screws on the lower bottom panel)
Make sure that your filter box hasn't loosened up.
Its a white circular knob in the center bottom. Check for loose hose connections while your looking. there are two that go into the filter and are connected by hose clamps.
You may also want to clean the filter by following these steps.

1.Turn power off at breaker or unplug the washer.
2.Unscrew the 3 star head bolts on the bottom panel.
3.Right in front of you you'll see a white plastic with 2 hoses going into it and a black box attached. It has a circular knob. That's where the filter is located.
4. Unscrew the 1 silver screw attaching the filter housing to the washer... this will make it easier to access the white hose clamp. Slide the housing towards you to free it from the washer frame.
5. Grab a bucket to catch the water that's in the hose and place a towel under the washer too, this will keep any stray water from going all over.
6.You can use a pair of Chanel lock pliers to squeeze the hose clamp on the smaller white hose while you pull it free from the housing, aim that hose into the bucket and shake it a bit to get any particles out until it stops draining.
7. Now you can unscrew the white circular filter knob to the left, be prepared for some water to come out, keep the bucket and towel handy for this.
8. Pull the filter all the way out and more than likely you'll be surprised by how much **** is in there lol, I had a small screw driver, a nail, coins and many other misc. debris.
9. Shake the filter housing a little while its over the plastic bucket to help drain excess water and crud out of the hose and housing.
10. Clean the filter and make sure all the holes are clear.
11. Reinstall the opposite way you took it apart but keep the lower panel off to make sure nothing is leaking after you do step 12.
12.Turn the power back on and press the cancel button twice and make sure the washer is set to spin and drain cycle and run and watch it off and on until its done.
13. Go ahead and put the lower panel back on.

My fridge is freezing food


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Fridge and freezer same temp.


First of all, there is only one thing that cools in a fridge and that is the freezer. The fresh food section is cooled by air forced into it from the freezer.
  • You ice maker will not work if the temp inside the freezer is above 5 degrees. It has a thermostat inside it that enables it.
  • The knob that turns the fridge off and on is the thermostat for the freezer.
  • The other knob opens and closes a damper between the freezer and fresh food section.
  • There is a fan that should be running that pulls air from the freezer into the fresh food section.
(The factory does make the discription of the knobs confussing)

Now. turn one of the knobs all the way one way and then the next. If it turns the compressor off, it's the thermostat. If it does not, try the other knob. Once you find the thermostat, set it in the middle of the scale. Now place the other knob the same. Check and see if you can either feel or hear the inside fan running. If so lets go to the back. This is where your compressor is. It is under the fridge and also has a fan that blows on it. You will need to remove the back bottom panel. See if you can tell if the fan is running. Also notice if the fan is blowing into a set if coils. You should also be able to fill the compressor, if it's hot, it's running. If these two are running, and you didn't see a coil at the fan. Take the front kick panel off the fridge and clean the coil that's under the fridge. If it's dirty, give the fridge a couple hours and see if it cools down. If so, this was your problem. If both knobs are set mid scale, both fans are running, the compressor is also running and the coils are clean. You most likely have a bad timer, compressor or thermostat. This is all that's left.

Maytag MZD2665HEW ADC replacement


You will find the defrost control board inside the panel that contains the two turn knobs where you control the temp inside both compartments. It's inside your fresh food section of your unit. Pull the two knobs off, take the screw out of the side and remove plastic piece. Between the two temp controls there is a square box. The board is located inside the box. Take box apart and replace board.

If you would like a parts blowup of the unit, go to www.partselect.com and enter your model number. Select the Control panel to the left. This will give you a blowup of the parts.

Water Leaking really bad from the Dispenser area


Disconnect the plug from the outlet. Remove the top of the washer panel by removing the 2 back hex screws then sliding it back to lift it off of the washer. Take off the front control panel by removing the phillips screws holding it in place. Remove the dispenser drawer. Check the dispenser housing for clogs or lime build up at the bottom of the dispenser housing. Or the drain hose (large black hose attached to the front of the drawer housing) to the washer may be crimped or clogged.

Fridge making "knocking" noise


Remove the light shield and there should be screws under it. Remove the air tower in the back, it snaps in and there is 2 screws behind that as well to remove the damper housing that sits behind the light. Also not sure what your model is but some models have 2 air ducts that run up each side, they come out after the light shield is removed by sliding foward and then pulling down. After the screws are removed in the upper plate the light assy will snap out and there is 2 quick disconnects on the wires.
