Door slams open Maytag Fridge MZD2766

The fridge (yes it is level) is a side by side and the problem is that the door hinge is has the reverse grade to operate. Normal Operation: ***\___/*** When the door opens it is supposed to go downhill to use gravity to help open it. they past half-open it starts to use gravity to slow the opening of the door and prevent it from slamming open. The was mine works: ****\___-BAM The door throws itself open and is impossible to slam shut. It is like the hinges are upside-down.

Human error may have resulted in the hinges being installed incorrectly. To confirm your suspicion, check a similar Maytag on display in a store.

SOURCE: Maytag Fridge French Door hinge discrepancy - hard swing

Vhotho, Maytag put out a service bullitin regarding this problem. This of course is for the model that is posted. The fix is to install a new right side center hinge and door stop limiting the opening to 135 degrees. They must of redesigned it. I can give you the part numbers. Black and stainless the hinge is 67006443 and the stop is 67006276. For white the hinge is 67006379 and the stop is 67006278. This bullitin came out in Feb of 2006. TDR-0057a-b. Catriver..post back.

The MBR1952KES Has the hinges on the right only, you need to order a custom made door to move hinges on the left.

The fridge door won't close all the way , is there an adjustment on the hinges


Check the bottom fridge door hinge. There should be two plastic cams, one that mounts to the door and one that mounts to the hinge. From your discription it sounds as if thoes cams have broke and need to be replaced

MZD2766 fridge light works but the fridge and freezer is not working. The water dispenser and ice cube not working either. I did hear buzzing coming from inside the top fridge side occassionally.


it could be a defective cold control,you can use a jumper wire to bypass this and see if the compressor starts,or it could be a bad ptc overload on the compressor itself,and these are easily changed too

MZD2766 fridge light works but the fridge does not


The only thing you need to do is let us test the auto vent. Yes you may need to take it out but it has a thermostat built into it. Drop the pig tail in cold icy water and warm the thermostat pigtail. If door does not open or shut replace it.Tell me your freezers temp?

Fridge door does not close on it's own. possibly missing spring.


There are no springs to assist refrigerator doors to close.

The fridge doors can be made to close themselves by adjusting the height of the feet of the fridge. "Pitching" the fridge slightly away from the hinge will accomplish this. If the foot on the hinge side of the fridge door is slightly higher than the foot on the handle side of the door, the door will usually want to close by itself. If the fridge is a side-by-side type and this is done, one door will close by itself and the other will want to remain open (or open fully). In this case, it's best to have the fridge as close to level as possible.

I hope this was helpful.

We have a fridge/freezer, upright bought some 15 years ago. Works fine, but we wish to reverse the doors to right opening from left. Please advise how to do it.


if you can notice that the doors have plastic plugs to the other side of the hinge then it is design to be reversible.

but if there is no indication that you can transfer the hinge to the other side of the door, then it is not designed to be reversible and there is nothing you can do about it.

i'm not sure if the old fridge are designed to be reversible.
