Question about Maytag MSD2732GR Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

The dispenser light won't turn off and ice and water not working after filter change..

The lightbulb does turn off when the fridge door is opened as normal, but when closed it will not turn off, not even with the light 'button' on the front of the fridge. I have now unscrewed the dispenser bulb to make it go off... Everything worked fine until the filter was changed... The filter red indicator light has already been reset..

I'm not really sure of this one but here's a couple ideas. If the refrigerator ice and water dispenser is not working the dispenser control board might be defective. The control board governs most of the functions of the dispenser system. If only one item of the dispenser system is not working, troubleshoot further to see if the problem is with one of the components in the system. The board is more likely to be the cause of the problem when the entire dispensing system fails. It may also be the door switch If the refrigerator ice and water dispenser is not working. When the freezer door is opened the freezer door switch does two things, it turns on the light in the freezer and turns off the ice maker dispenser. If the door switch fails the dispenser will not turn on. The switch can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter. If it doesn't have continuity it should be replaced.Before either of these try shutting it off (or place it in demo mode) and return is to active state.It may just need a reset

SOURCE: Outside door light won't turn off

Please post the model number so I can pull up a schematic. Some models have a "night light" mode that may have been activated so check the owners manual, other than that the control board could be bad, providing a slight "leakage" of power to the lamp (depending on the type of lamp control circuit).

SOURCE: ice and water dispenser not working but light on constantly

CM, there are 2 things that'd cause this. One is inexpensive, the other is not. First, check the cheap one... That rectangular rubber piece in back of your dispenser area is only a cover for a cantilever device. When you push in on this with a cup, the cantilever swivels back toward you and makes contact with a micro-switch. This switch sends power to the integrated circuit board which, in turn, performs the function you requested (cubed, crushed, water). OK... unplug your fridge. Then use your ears to diagnose this. Push the actuator pad several times in and out and listen for the tell-tale "click click" of the micro-switch. If you hear it clicking, it's good. Plug your fridge back in. Now for the expensive part. If your micro-switch clicks, your dispenser control board is fried and needs to be replaced. (I'm afraid that this is the case because the board controls the light as well as all the other functions.) UNPLUG YOUR FRIDGE BEFORE REPAIRING! To gain access the board, use a small flat blade screwdriver and remove the fascia panel starting at the bottom first. Just begin prying it gently off. Then remove the screws that are holding the board assy in place and gently pull it out. Take note of all of the wiring so you can re-install it correctly. The board number you need is #61005274. Unfortunately, it lists for about $100. A professional repairman would charge you over $200 for the repair, so you're actually saving money here! BTW, we recommend using a Belkin Surge protector for all appliances that utilize electronic controls. (you wouldn't plug you computer directly into a wall outlet, would you?) We regularly use these... http://www.acehardwareoutlet.com/(a1q3xi45sxgfbzm0qejhei55)/ProductDetails.aspx?SKU=3115672

SOURCE: Idicator lights

not a problem aftter inserting the new filter just follow this procedure to reset it..
the indicator light can be reset by holding down on the 'lock' button and the 'water' button simultaneously for three seconds. Sometimes, it is the 'lock' and the 'light' button you need to press down on simultaneously for three seconds in order to reset the filter indicator light.

SOURCE: control panel on my fridge

Pull the power cord for 5 minute to reset the control board. if this control panel malfunction still exist after the reset, replace the control circuit board.

This is a typical control fault that should be corrected by pulling power for 5 minutes. if not, this reset will confirm major damaged to the circuit board.

E240B Fridge Freezer door open alarm goes even when door closed.


Fridge keeps beeping or buzzing: The following is for Frigidaire models but others can be addressed similarly.

Several Frigidaire refrigerator models have an electronic control panel on the freezer door the owner can use to adjust the internal temperature, dispense ice and water and receive notification about issues such as the need to replace a water filter. The refrigerators also emit a beep for various actions and as an occasional alarm. Determining what causes the beeps necessitates some troubleshooting.
Temperature Controls ·A Frigidaire refrigerator's display panel blinks when the control panel is touched to set temperature controls. After pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, press the arrow buttons within five seconds to increase or decrease the desired temperature. If you do not press the arrow buttons within five seconds after pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, the refrigerator beeps to indicate the current setting will stay in place.

Door Open ·When you leave the refrigerator or freezer door open, the refrigerator beeps. Also, the "Door Ajar" indicator illuminates on the appliance's display panel. Shutting the door and pressing "Alarm Reset" stops the beeping and turns off the "Door Ajar" indicator light.
·The Frigidaire refrigerator has a control lock feature that prevents use of its control panel or dispensers when the unit is locked. When the control lock is active, a beep sounds when a keypad or dispenser is pressed. Release the control lock by pressing the "Control Lock" icon for three seconds. A beep will sound, and the icon's light will go out.
Power Reset ·A power reset is occasionally necessary if the Frigidaire refrigerator's control panel does not work normally or a reset function on the keypad does not work. A power reset involves disconnecting power to the refrigerator by unplugging its power cord from the electrical outlet, waiting 30 seconds and plugging the power cord back into the electrical outlet. When the control panel resets, a beep sounds. If the refrigerator beeps even after a power reset and the beeps' source is not known, contact Frigidaire.

I have this Kenmore elite 795.77563600 refr that has a strange problem. The Lite bulbs in the refrigerator section, when the doors or door is opened...these lights get real hot...and I mean real HOT..!...


Hello,

That sounds as if the light switch is stuck open so even when the door is closed the lights aren't going off.The ligth switch is in the top hinge cover avove the door and i suspect it should be replaced.

The part number for that light switch is 6600JB3007B that refrigerator is built by LG for sears and thier are only a few select places to purchase the switch from. The only 2 places i know of are of course Sears since they will always sell replacement parts from their Kenmore name brand and a online parts site... repairclinic.com

My kenmore fridge - 4 years old - has developed an intermittant rattle. Stops when the door is open on fridge or freezer. Starts again if you open the door but hold down the light button so it...


That button just turns the interior light on when you open the door and off when you close it. Could a light bulb be slightly unscrewed? Or perhaps the bulb cover is loose?

Door ajar indicator remains on while driving and interior lights wont go off when auto is turned off even though doors are all shut. We will have dead battery and are out of town traveling. Help!


Not a professional, but what i would trouble shoot is when you close the door, it pushes against a little button. Sort of like a fridge (when you open it the light comes on, close it, it pushes against a little push in type button! It may be just from one door.....if you have a few friends around (4 people) then open each door and locate the button (may just be on the front doors). Look to where the doors are bolted on.....there should be something there!

Good Luck!

The lights do not turn on when opening the doors despite changing the bulbs.


It sounds like the door switch. Check to see if it is sticking -- it should come out when the door is open. If it's not sticking, the switch probably needs replacing.

Smeg Fridge light


What you need to locate is the door switch mechanism for the fridge. These are normally located towards the top of the door and protrude so that when the door closes the switch is pushed in. To find out if you have a problem with the switch just press it when the door is open and the light should go off. The switch itself can appear in various forms either as a protruding rod or a curved plate which pushes upwards against the door side when it closes. If I could draw in this section it could be better explained. But if you look around the inside of the fridge on the side away from the door hinge then you should find something you can push. Sorry to be this vague. If you do need a replacement switch they are normally quite simple to change depending on where they are located, most are two screws, or just a push in type. Hope this has been of some help.

Short in freezer?


IF THE WIRES SHORTED, AND THE DOOR WAS REPLACED,
WAS IT COMPLETE OR WAS THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY TRANSFERRED TO THE NEW DOOR? IF THE ASSEMBLY ISN'T NEW, THE CONTROL BOARD IN THE ASSEMBLY MAY HAVE BEEN DAMAGED FROM THE WIRE SHORT.

Fridg not cold


your story is very odd but likely nobody is messing with the door switch hwen you moved , or the wires could have shorted out. normally, the door switch, when you open a door would switch on a cabinet light and turn off the blower. in your case, its the reverse, as you open a door, the blower runs and if you close the door, the blower stops. im not sure if you can figure out which pair is the normally close and which one is the normally open on the door switch in order to swap them or you may rplace the door switch.
