Their are a few things you can check before calling a dude out. make sure your condenser coils are clean on bottom of refrig. Hair dust and cobwebs can constrict airflow in those coils. Look ffor frost on the back wall of the freezer, a sign the defrost heater has blown. Remove the rear access panel of the freezer and inspect for ice, use a hair dryer to melt the ice and check the defrost components. MORE

Mini refirgerator stopped cooling, interior light


If nothing is running but the light is on you might want to unplug the unit for about a minute. Then plug it in. If it starts up again then do nothing. It just had to be adjusted. If the display shows a er then it could have something wrong with the thermistors. If it shows 2 dashes then let me know and I can try to walk you thru a program to get you backup and running again. If 2 dashes you will have to get to the plug so pull the unit out.

Refrigerator not cool freezer working



Rick,

This is the generic answer. Use the hair dryer (below) and reset the defrost (look for instructions from Sea Breeze)

Most of these units work with the freezer providing all of the cooling and a thermostat in the refrigerator section controlling a fan in the freezer (where the fan directs cold air from the freezer section to the refrigerator section via a duct in the back).

Look at the rear area of the refirgerator and locate a vent. This vent receives cold air from the freezer to the refirgerator. If you feel cold air coming out of this vent, then there may be no problem, just wait a few hours and recheck the refrigerator temperature.

Look at the rear area of the freezer and locate a vent. This vent provides cold air from the freezer to the refirgerator. Shine a bright light into this vent. You should see fan blades (possibly black plastic). If there is ice on the blades, then you have a defrost problem, and look to other posts on this site for how to manually defrost (or reset the automatic defrost). If the fan blades are rotating, then there is probably a blockage in the duct. Direct a hair dryer (warm setting) through the rear freezer vent and check to see if there is very warm air flowing out of the refrigerator vent (which indicates that the duct is not blocked). While using the hair dryer, you may be able to see the fan blades rotating.

If you do not feel warm air flowing out of the refrigerator vent, then run the hair dryer for a few minutes. (this was my problem, I saw no moisture drip from the vent, which led me to believe that it was more of a dry ice buildup, or that the ice was evaporated (desublimed to be technical).

If there is air flow and no ice buildup on the fan, then reset the automatic defrost. If this is not your solution, either the thermostat or the fan motor is the problem.

Maytag refirigerator not freezing/cooling


Turned out to be a bad circuit board on the back of the unit which caused the refrigerator/freezer to freeze up. Replace it, thawed the refrigerator compartment, and it works fine. Cost me less than $200 including service call.
