Question about Maytag Refrigerators

Open Question

Maytag MFI2569VEM chills to the point that everything in the refrigerator section will freeze, regardless of the temperature setting on the front panel.

Recently moved from Georgia to Wisconsin and since the move, the Maytag MFI2569VEM compressor will rarely stop. Everything in the refrigerator compartment freezes. Have tried leaving the unit unplugged for more than 24 hours, but after plugging it back in the unit returns to becoming a freezer that won't stop running. Lights on the control panel all work and the temperature settings can be adjusted, but without any affect(the unit simply runs continuously).

SOURCE: Compressor runs less frequently freezer warms between cycles

Hi,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

any further question let me know.

thanks,,

Whirlpool S20b American style f/f. The fridge is very cold and some foods are freezing.


Suggest lowering the refrigerator set point to a lower number such as 3. There is usually an indication of normal setting on the adjustments. Wait 24 hours and check the refrigerator compartment again. Use a thermometer to record the temperatures. The meat compartment will be normal just below freezing. If no success then read the following.

One reason that this occurs is that the unit is working near continuously to reach the freezer temperature. Another words the unit is not capable or cooling the freezer to the prescribed temperature. The result is the excess cooling eventually reaches the refrigerator section causing the refrigerator to freeze. The unit will if this is the case run nearly continuously. This situation is counter intuitive. Freezer not reaching set point, excessive cooling over cools refrigerator therefore refrigerator freezes.

The cause is either the freezer door/seal is not closing or sealing the freezer compartment or the compressor or defrost cycle is not functioning properly.

Check the freezer door seal using a strip of paper. Check to see if air is flowing from the vents in the freezer. Using a thermometer check the temperature of the freezer. Listen for and record if the compressor is running or not.

The normal freezer temperature is around '0' Fahrenheit. If no or little air is flowing from freezer air vents look for ice on the back wall. If ice is present it is likely the auto defrost cycle is not working. Attempt to defrost by hand which requires several hours with everything removed.

Check that lint and dust has not blocked the coils under the unit and that the lower fan is running. Usually warm air exits from the machine grill in the front. Remove the grill and check for air flow and debris buildup. Vacuum if necessary.

And unfortunately if the compressor runs continuously and no air blockage underneath would indicate that the cooling capacity is reduced requiring a major service or replacement.

Hope this helps?

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. You need to raise the temperature in the fridge. You should have a turn switch in the fridge that is numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.

Refrigerator is on lowest setting, but everything is still freezi


you need either a temperature control #66005516 or more probably a new auto damper # 61005989 they ar both in the back at the top of the fresh food section under the plastic slide control housing they are easy to replace be care ful and take your time disassembling and reassmbly will be much smoother.
go to apdepot.com and enter in the model number etc and you will se a blow up of the unit itself under controls.

Fridge keeps freezing everything!


you need a damper door and thermostat asm. the door that allows the cool air in is just staying open that is air from freezer and if open all the time will cause your freezing temp in refrig section you can take some tape and cover 3/4 of the grill where you feel air coming out in the frig section to help slow the air it is in the top left hand corner in the back you will feel air. should get you until you can get a repair man.

The air that cools the refrigerator section comes from the freezer. The refrigerator temperature control controls the run cycle. You may have to replace or have the thermostat replaced. The temperature control has failed.

Food stays frozen regardless of temperature setting


It is possible it has a bad thermostat but most likely cause would be a bad damper motor.  It is the vent inside the fridge that opens and closes, based on temp. setting, to allow cold air from the freezer into the fridge section.
