Question about Maytag MZD2766GES Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Not running My Maytag side by side just up and quit running. The compressor is not turning on. The ice maker delivery system turns, the lights all work but nothing else. The failure was sudden without warning.

    It has now started to make a very loud (not normal ice-maker or compressor noise) vibrating noise when the compressor runs. Is it about to die on us again? Any ideas? Will the 1 year warranty cover the repair?

Check to see what brand of compressor you have. If it is a tecumpseh then it is most likely the problem. If it is an embraco I would try replacing the start device on the compressor. You could try a start device on the tecumpseh as well. If the compressor tries to start then just clicks it is most likely the start device also called relay and overload. The brand name of the compressor will be on it. If the start device doesn't work either the compressor is locked up or the control board is bad which is less likely. Seald system has a 5 yr warranty from date of purchase.

Fridge and freezer not cooling


When the refrigerator turns on, do you hear anything in the refrigerant lines? Does the compressor turn on? or does it just hum?

If the compressor is running, it lost refrigerant charge. They were not made to be serviced and lack service valves.

If there is just a loud hum, the compressor may be siezed, the start/run capacitor may have failed. or the magnetic starter failed.

A service call is a fair portion of a replacement not counting the parts.

The refrigerator has quit working. Lights come on and fan appears to be running. Not cooling


Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).
If it's iced up really heavy you have an auto defrost problem. Melt the ice with a hairdryer and check the defrost system.

My Refridgerator/freezer is not working


Sounds as if the compressor is not running even tho the fans are. The overload relays on the side of the compressor are usually the source of this problem. They are on the side of the compressor and if you change these out you should be fine. Fairly easy to do as it should just be a plug connecting it. Hope this helps.

Ice Maker quit, everything started to thaw out.


Good day,
Limited information. The ice maker will go into auto lockout if the freezer goes above 14 degrees.
Motors make noise.
There is a fan motor behind the back wall, of the freezer compartment. If the machine is turned on, it should run, and you should be able to hear it.
If not, remove the rear panel and inspect.
The second fan motor, is located in the back rear of the machine, behind the rear cover, it should be running as well.
If both are running O.K. then it is in the compressor itself.
A pricey problem, if it's the compressor. Should be checked by a qualified tech.

P.S. If you feel it is a compressor problem, and the unit is less than 5 years of age, then contact your selling dealer. It would be under warranty.

Thank you for using FixYa

Maytag MZD2766GES refrigerator quit cooling, both sides. Noticed frosting on freezer contents, and next day the ice maker ice was melting and running on the floor. We can hear a clicking every 5-10 minutes...

. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Remove the cardboard backing from the back bottom to access the compressor area.
