Fridge stopped cooling, compressor not running

I bought this fridge used about 2 years ago, so it was a gamble since I didn't actually know how old it was. Is there a way to tell from the model # how old this fridge is before I call a repairman only to be told the compressor is shot? And where is the model # located?

Problem with Maytag is they were bought out by Whirlpool who say those are not are problems.
Go figure. Anyhow call for service you should be covered with warranty on new compressor.

Whirlpool side-by-side won't get cold, compressor clicks on-off.


Sounds like the start relay OR the compressor is no good. Have a service tech look at it, because there may be a capacitor in the circuit, which could be dangerous for you to fool with.

REFRIGERATOR IS MAKING A BUZZING SOUND, not cooling


You have one of two problems going on. Your fan is spinning at hitting the sides. Or your compressor is shot which seems to be more the problem and even though it is cold the humming sound is a warning for you that the compressor is shot and it is more affordable to replace the fridge then the compressor. Sometimes compressor can cost more then the fridge.

Maytag side by side slowly getting warmer


I have actually been having the same problem. We have a Maytag MTB2156GEQ and it hasn't been cooling well at all lately. Temp in the fridge is about 52 degrees even on the highest setting. The freezer seems to be fine. I pulled off the back panel and vacuumed out the condensor coil and everything else under there. I then pulled out the control panel on the ceiling of the fridge. The channel between the freezer and fridge was almost completely blocked with ice. I cleaned it out by taking out the back panel of the freezer and pouring hot water down through the hole until it was clear.
that seem fix the issue.

Refrigerator will not get cold, but freezer works


Do you know if the compressor in the back is running? If you can check that out get back to me and we can go from there. Most times if the fan in the freezer is running the defrost timer is ok.
