Question about Maytag MSD2732GR Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Model MSD2732GR side by side refrigerator has intermittently stopped cooling for quite some time now. Unfortunately, it is now more frequent- the freezer defrosts and gets warmer spoiling all the food as the fridge side does the same. Wondering if it has something to do with a faulty thermostat, relay, or similar? It acts like it goes in to defrost mode and then has trouble going back on. Any idea which part I should replace?

Click on the link and you will see where your defrost timer and themostat is. without being there to hear the noises start there. See if the fan in the freezer and the fan behind at the bottom of the refrigerator in the back are working and you get good air flow. You are in luck because you have a mechanical defrost timer vs. a computer one but start there. to turn the compressor on and off there will be an access hole to the timer that you can use a screw driver on to slowly turn it to tun on the compressor...you will hear it come on. Leave it there once it comes on and if it cools properly for 6 to 8 hours and then stops cooling again your timer my be sticking in defrost. replace it. sometimes fans run intmittantly so dont forget to check them out...let me know here is the link...good luck....copy and past from http to the end.

Where is the defrost timer on a kenmore side by side model # 106.58904801


What you should be looking for its a dead fan motor. The condenser fan motor cools the refrigerant and allows the compressor to stay cool with the returning cool refrigerant. If the fan motor is working intermittently then the fridge will do the same. Usually the fan will work for a wile but when it gets hot the lubrication to the bearings becomes poor and the bearings get worn ant the shaft will fall and the rotor will lock up. Condenser fan motor is usually located on the bottom backside of the fridge. Do not run the fridge until the motor is replaced, you can create a whole lot of other problems that will need to be taken care of by a professional. Good luck

Ref. side stops cooling intermittently. Replaced damper control but problem occurred again three weeks later.


HI,

The most common problem is a bad start relay on the compressor. In rare cases the compressor may be bad. If you are mechanically inclined you can replace the relay yourself for less than 50 dollars. You will need model and serial number off of the unit and order the part by those numbers. if the compressor is bad you will need to hire a good service company

thanks,

Refrig not cooling Freezer has frost build up on coils


Frost on the coils won't allow air to pass to the fresh food section, thus resulting in insufficient cooling. To eliminate this problem, you will have to get a new adaptive defrost timer ( small board ), and a defrost heater assembly.
