Question about Maytag MSD2732GR Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Freezer Thaws every few days

I have a Maytag MSD2732GR Side by Side. Every few days the freezer thaws out and then it will freeze again. The refrig side seems fine. This has happened several times. I would like to figure out what part is causing this so I can replace it. Thanks in advance for any help.

    It is about 3 years old. I put a thermometer in the Freezer and when it seems to be working it is at 10 degrees. I guess I don't know for sure that the Refrige side is keeping the right temp other than I have seen no signs that it is not. When the Freezer got up to 40 degrees, the Refidge side seemed to be normal. Thank you for you help I can provide any other information you need.

    No frost is building up, ice does form in spots where there were small pools of water (on top of boxed items, etc) after it starts working again.

    Yes it runs, just not cold. I ordered a defrost timer and a relay (because I found them both fairly cheap) think that might solve it? Again, thank you very much for your help.

    So do you hear it running at all when it goes nto this thaw mode? Any noise from the unit at all?

    Is there frost build up inside the unit?

    When you say the freezer thaws out but the fridge is fine how can you tell what are the actual temperatures in both? Does the temperature rise in the fridge as the freezer thaws? How old is the unit?

It sounds as if the defrost timer could be going bad

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.

Refr/freezer alternately gets too cold and thaws


My first thought: defrost timer which shuts off the compressor and turns on a heater in the freezer is sluggish.  I'd change it out.

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
