Question about Maytag MSD2756G Side by Side Refrigerator
Posted by Anonymous on
Totally normal. The condenser sends hot gas through the frame to stop the freezer door freezing to the frame. Check to see if you have a fan behind the condenser grill and make sure its running and clean

Check the back wall of the freezer section for signs of frost buildup. Your problem could be caused by a frozen evaporator coil in the freezer section. After making your check come back and give the model number of your Maytag .

the fact that ice was built up on back of freeezer tells me that the refrigerant system is probably ok. most likely from your description you have a defrost system problem. whne ice builds up very heavily it starts to act like insulation (think igloo) so it will allow frozen foods to thaw and fresh foods to spoil. here is how to check. in refrig compartment I need you to remove the control panel/light lens in rear, these are held in place by the control knobs and then you pull out on the cover to release. once this is removed I need you to look for the defrost timer there will be a hole to the right of the temp controls it has a grey or black looking knob in it that you can turn with a flat tip scre driver. turn this knob until the unit clicks off. now you will have to wait a few minutes but listen in the freezer compartment for a sound that sounds like water falling into a hot frying pan, you may also notice a glowing red light at teh bottom of the cover in the back of the freezer.
if the heaters don't come on then the timer is ok. teh next step is remove the rear freezer cover and defrost the ice out of the coils. you can use a hair dryer, or a wet dry vac set to the blow position. once the ice is gone inspect the heaters for burnt or broken condition. (ge uses glass rod heaters and heater breakage is very common) I suspect the heaters are the problem anyway.
be aware that you are going to get lots of water the drain pan will not contain all of the defrost form this bad a freeze up. good luck peyton

SOURCE: Maytag wide by side not cooling
no cold, no compression.
Expansion of compressed freon or ammonia (these days) genartes the cold. You need a compressor running, a proper working expansion valve (not frozen in position) and ventilation over heat exchanger to get lost of generated heat from compression.
Thermostat may be broken. Check this with other temperature gauge around.

you need to replace the seal on that side of the door due to it being worn. The easiest way to replace the seal is to lift the seal up from the inside and you can see the little bolts (1/4 inch head) on the inside. These bolts run through a metal strip that in turn holds the seal down. Once you loosen (do not remove) these bolts you can pull slightly and the seal will come out from the metal flashing strip holding it down. Look at the seal and you will notice a small hump where it sat on the inside of the hump on the metal flashing when you see it you'll understand what I mean. Once the older seal is removed the new seal is ready for replacement. Hint: If you let the new seal sit out in the sun for an hour or so it will become soft and pliable and much easier to work with.
Reinstallation is just the opposite of removal.
To make sure you get the correct seal take the model and serial numbers to a appliance parts house and they should have one for replacement.
Good Luck on your repairs hope this helped
