Question about Maytag Refrigerators

1 Answer

Our Maytag fridge has the freezer on the bottom and the fridge on the top. The fridge part is not staying cool. We were told to unplug for a day and we did and now 2 days later it is doing it again.

Hi,

There are a couple of troubleshooting steps to be done before going ahead with any part opening or replacing.

1) check Freezer to see if there frost on back panel toward the bottom. Open up panel reveal coil was freeze over.
That confirm diag.
2) On Refrig side. Open top control panel. right side toward the end ...there is a piece of electronic. un-plug and plug in new part.
3) Defrost freezer and everything is working again. Fix alone is 5 mins for the unscrew and replace an open electronic part. In my opinion, this is a bad design. There is moisture in refrig and they left this piece of electronic in the open. There will be a short, it's just matter of time.

Remove power, remove freezer back wall, check defrost heater and defrost thermostat, remove covers in FF section and replace adaptive defrost board and then defrost the frosted up coils in the freezer and reinstall the covers

Thanks for contacting Fixya

Refrigerator portion on top does have cooling but freezer on bottom works fine. I have read that the cooling all happens in the bottom and a fan transfers cool air to the the top.


if the fridge part is cool and freezer is fine what problem are you having?is the fridge not cold enough? a common problem with bottom mount freezers is the freezer door doesn't get closed all the way,warm air enters the freezer mixes with the zero degree air and freezes up the air ducts,when you open the freezer door you should hear the fan blowing,if it is check the ceiling in the freezer to see if ice is on it,check the packages for frozen water droplets and stick your hand in the fridge where the air ducts are to see if you can feel cold air blowing into the fridge,if you can't feel air blowing into the fridge,unplug it,open the freezer door,remove the top basket and remove all the food out of the bottom basket,with a hair dryer blow into the back wall into the vent holes and melt out all the ice in the ducts,you'll see water dripping down through the vent holes,when the water stops dripping plug it back in and see if the fan is blowing the air into the fridge.also you can remove the bottom kickplate and you should see a tech sheet in it,read it and it will tell you how to put the machine into defrost,it will stay in defrost for like 20 minutes,you can do this instead of unplugging it, there's a heater that comes on behind the back panel in the freezer,this can help you melt out the ice but if it seems to hard to do just unplug it.

Warm fridge


Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

Warm Fridge Section


sounds like the evaporator fan in the freezer is not moving the air. also there is an air damper door at the top center of the fridge that controls air flow from the freezer to the fridge. check those two components and you will find your problem.
