Question about Maytag MSD2756G Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

The freezer and refrigerator temp is becoming warmer.

The fan in the back is running, the compressor has 120 V going to it. There is not any ice on the back panel of the freezer. I replaced the Adaptive Defrost PCB because we had a similar problem 2 years ago. Has anyone seen a similar issue? Any Advice?

    I have experienced the exact same problem you are describing and in my case the heating element started going bad. It didn't go bad all at once, it started failing until one day I came home and the refrigerator was at room temperature and the freezer contents had melted. I hope that will shed some light.



    Good luck!

    Is the compressor making a clicking sound?

    Is the compressor hot to the touch?

The newest defrost feature in modern fridges is the electronic adaptive defrost control board. to put this adaptive defrost style of fridge into defrost, short with a small screwdriver between L1 and test on the adaptive defrost board, wait 3 seconds and you should hear a "click" noise from the relay and the fridge will shut off and go through a defrost cycle.

Artic air refrigerator not cooling well. Temp is getting warmer. Do I need a new compressor and if so where do I go to order one?


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

Icecream not staying froze meat stays frozen though


Meat is always more dense than frozen dairy product. This soft ice cream issue usually occurs when the circulating fan becomes blocked due to overloading.
Unlike a chest type freezer, top mounted freezers use a fan to circulate to the refrigerator. If the return vents to the freezer become blocked by too many small items, or loose plastic bags the compressor may run too long in an attempt to lower the refrigerator temp,
This may cause the compressor to heat up and kick in the overload safety, further dropping the total temperature.

Not cooling or freezing


When the compressor is running, both the fan inside the freezer and the fan down by the compressor should be running. If OK, look for frost on the back wall of the freezer, indicating a probable defrost heater failure. If yes, remove back metal cover in freezer, defrost with hair blower, replace defrost heater (the thing at the bottom of the freezer coils with two wires going to it)
If no to these, send me an "ask me" follow up question.

GE 25 side by side refrigerator ice maker problem


Assuming the temp inside the freezer is at around 0 or -2 degrees, it should dump ice every ~50 minutes or so. Again, depending on temp's, an Ice Bin should fill within 24 to 48 hours. If your freezer temp is running at around 10 degrees, everything will obviously still be frozen (below 32), but the ice maker will take longer to freeze the water than it would if it were at 0 degrees. Open both doors and place the palm of your hand on the partition between the freezer and Fresh Food compartments... (where the door gaskets seat when they're closed). The temp of the partition should be about 5 or 10 degrees warmer than body temp., If it's hotter than that, you found the problem. Either the condenser coils are dirty and need a good cleaning OR your condenser fan motor (the fan in back, near the floor in the compressor area) is failed or about to fail.
