Never lay a fridge down if you can help it. if you do then leave it vertical for an hour before plugging it in.

Check the condenser fan, listen and see if it kicks on, if it doesn't then find someone that know how to take it apart and change them.

Hi, With the information you supplied i'm going to assume there is an ice build up at the rear of the freezer. Your problem is going to be with your defrost system. I will also assume you have the ability to repair this yourself. This is going to be one of three problems with your refridgerator, 1st thing to do is remove shelfs and panel in the back of the freezer...you should see ice build up on the evaporator...don't worry get a hair dryer and melt the ice. Next locate the wires for the heater...using a multi meter test the heater for condinuity...if the heater is bad replace it, If the heater is good replace the defrost thermostat..the stat normally is a barrel looking part clipped onto the evaporator pipe. The last possible problem could be the evaporator fan, have you heard the fan running in the past few hours?..if you are not sure pull the panel out to where you can see fan and watch it over an hour to see if it turns. I have included links with pictures of what the parts you need to check are: http://romulusappliance.com/manufacturers/maytag/refrigerators/575432.JPG defrost stat http://www.hotekalliance.com/UploadFiles/2008627111553382.jpg heaters http://www.applianceblog.com/archives/EvapMotor1018185.jpg evap fan. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. If you decide to get a repair guy in should not cost you any more then $120 - $200 depending on make/model/problem Good luck! P.s Please don't forget to rate my solution Thanks! Mike

SOURCE: Carry refrigerator laying down in an SUV

The reason that it is not recomended to lay a refrigerator down on it's side is because of the oils in the compressor.

When you lay the refrigerator down on it's side the oil can get into the lines and cause problems.

because you have already done so, stand the refrigerator back up and let it sit for 48 hrs and give it a try.

If you half to move a refrigeratror on its side, the best thing to do is inspcect the compressor and see witch side the main lines come out and lay the refrigeator on the oposit side as not to allow the oil to get in those lines.

Admiral american fridge freezer constantly blowing cold air into fridge compartment.


Changing the freezer settings won't really make a difference because regardless its still going to be freezing. The way the machine works is the freezer cools the fridge, and there should be a control in the fridge that operates the baffles in the airway between the freezer and fridge and reduces the amount of air that enters into the fresh food section.

Refer does not work. Freezer and ice maker work good.


Check your evaporator fan in your freezer. They go quite frequently these days. The fridge gets it's cold air from the freezer via the evaporator fan blowing the cold air down into the fridge and cooling it.

Water Filter


Open the fridge site, look up at the top right corner, half way to the back, you'll see the filter laying horizontally against the top of the fridge.

Push a button with the arrow to pull down the cover, you'll see the filter.

Twist the filter counter clockwise to remove it. My filter name is Puriclean II. Yours could be different.

Admiral SAC224 fridge freezer: fridge intermittently freezes up


To Whiteorchid,

Found a fix for my issue ... hopefully it'll help you.
Up at the topleft rearmost corner of the fridge remove panel to reveal spring attached slots where cold is supplied from freezer. The spring attached had came off one end as there isn't a "slot" for the spring to hold in place (design fault?).Reattached the spring and taped on .... and hey presto fridge now working perfectly again. Hope this helps.

Admiral side by side


All the cold air from your freezer gets pushed into the fridge with a fan in your freezer section. So your problem is from the fact that this cold air isn't get to your fridge.
- the door that allows this cold air into the fridge, normally in the top left corner of the fridge, is stuck shut and needs replacement.
-the freezer isn't defrosting and restricting the air flow
-the temp controller for the fridge is damaged and thinks that the fridge is cold enough.
