Maytag Fridge MTB2156GEW Won't cool. Change thermostat today and ran it for four hours. Frige was warm after. There is a clicking noise every 2 to 5 minutes from the back of the fridge. I think it is stuck in a defrost cycle. Any thoughts on the clicking?

    Took the relay off definetly the problem.



    Ordered the part and it came in but it is the wrong part.



    It matches the schematic on the drawings but the drawings do not match my fridge. Looked at a few different web sites for parts and they keep showing the same schematic that does not match my fridge.

This is a recall issue (compressor relay) because of fire risk!

I contacted Maytag when my fridge stopped working (& the compressor would just click) and they sent out a serviceman to replace the part at no charge (parts or labor). Once the serviceman finished the fridge worked! The serviceman placed a green dot on the model/serial# label inside the fridge to indicate that the recall issue had been fixed.

Go to https://repair.maytag.com/prjjck/refrigerator.jsp to see if your model is part of the recall.

Iv got a fridge freezer frost free hotpoint the freezer is keeping frozen but my frige is warm all the time can u please tell me what the problem could be please.



If there is no cooling at all , before we go further we must confirm the first step of confirming the compressor and gas pressure. So shut off the fridge and leave it off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.However if Ice forms then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test from the outside and make your observations so that we come to the solution.

Switch off the fridge for several hours.. 6 hours. then switch on and check if ice forms in about 2-3 hours in the normal setting. If there is no cooling at all with the compressor running then it is possible that the gas is low or the compressor is faulty with low pumping pressure. get help to estimate and decide.
If the compressor is cooling initially but after several hours it is dropping , open the freezer panel to check for frosting. If so then the defroster is not working.or the thermostat is not cutting off the compressor,
check individually to confirm.. defrost timer, thermostat or heater.

Maytag MSD2651HEQ frige not cooling; can hear/feel fan blowing


How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Freezers cold but refrigerators warm


see if there is a big block of ice on the back plate in your frige, if there is then your thermostat is set to cold or broken. if no ice in the frige then it has a gas leak!

Frige problem


This is almost a word for word common problem. On frost free fridge freezers of this type all cooling is generated through the freezer side and is merely forced into the fridge side through airflow. Therefore if you have a problem with the fridge you have a problem with the freezer section. The most likely cause is that the coil is frozen up. We would always suggest defrosting unit overnight in case it was simply a door left ajar being the cause of the fault. If the unit then pulls the fridge temp down and it was not the door ajar then you probably have a defrost problem (heater or defrost thermostat, or defrost timer). If it fails to pull the fridge temp down on restarting then it could be the fan or part of the defrost circuit or even possible the cooling circuit. The normal outcome after defrosting is that the temp will drop in the fridge due to air circulation improved, which will probably remain cool for 2-3 weeks until the coil becomes frozen again. On either result I would contact an engineer on the 2nd failure occurrs so that the engineer can establish the exact cause. Hope this helps.
