Question about Maytag MFF2557HE Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

Maytag refrigerator, control panel is intermittently unresponsive. When it does respond the fridge and freezer cool properly to the temperature selected but we will come back later and it is not cooling and the numbers have returned to just dashes. It will be unresponsive for a bit and then later we can set the temp again and it will cool. Any ideas?

Sounds very much like a loose wire in your power circuit, loose ribbon cable on the pcb, or a fault on the pcb itself. Sometimes just the compressor current draw on start up is enough to reset the pcb which then needs reprogramming. Get a technician out to check it over

SOURCE: Refrigerator won't cool. Freezer works fine!

Pierce, there was a service bullitin put out on this model. TDR-0010A-B. Had to do with normal freezer, warm fresh food compartment. Maytag issued a kit that included a new thermostat and damper assy. to solve this problem. Bullitin came out in 2002. If you are not having a defrost issue and all fans are running normal, I would call Maytag and inquire about the above posted bullitin, It may be covered. Catriver...post back.

SOURCE: Maytag fridge made some clicking noises and then stopped cooling

For what it is worth. I had this problem twice and both times the compressor ad to be replaced. Ton this day it sounds like a pin pong game whenever it runs. No it is not the fans or the ice maker.

SOURCE: lights flashing all cooling appears normal ice maker flap continually opens and shuts no water buttons not operational

As I mentioned before my Maytag was doing the same thing, I called Maytag expecting a big fight but they were really nice about it.
This is a recall problem and even if your warrenty is up Maytag will repair it at NO COST to you.
They shiped me the HV board and sent a repairman who had it fixed in about 10 minutes with a newley designed HV board.

SOURCE: maytag refrigerator clicking

it sounds like a bad: 

  • ·       start switch (on the side of the compressor) or
  • ·        compressor itself

the start switch clicks  off usually when the compressor is pulling too many amps or the compressor is overheating. if the compressor is not even running then its probably not overheating.
so either the compressor is pulling too many amps (bad compressor) or the start switch is bad and cannot handle the amps required to start the compressor.

Defrost the fridge, take everything out of freezer and turn off for at least a day, check the drain is clear after defrosted and try again, if it happens again you may need a new defrost heater of timer.

Freezer is good. Fridge is not cold enough. It is on 7. MTF2195


Refrigeration half of fridge does not have a cooling unit. It gets its cold from the freezer. There is a door between the fridge and the freezer which is controlled by the fridge temperature control knob. Often times the connection is purely mechanical. There may also be a fan to push the air through the door which is controlled by the fridge temperature knob which is actually a thermostat.

My unit works great on AC (cools to 30degree), but


Your fridge has two manual settings to adjust it's internal temperature. Obviously, it most likely has a standard control (1-5 or 1-9 depending on the fridge) that you can adjust on the control panel. Some fridges are preset (no control panel adjustment) and must be adjusted on the inside of the unit. If open your fridge, look at your cooling fins. You will notice a metal slider on a wire attached to one of the fins. Moving this sensor up or down along this fin will set the internal temperature of the fridge. You will have to play with it a bit to get it set properly (with a thermometer), but you should be able to get it to the proper temperature. I hope this solves your problem. Thanks... John Charles

MFD2561HES The fridge temperature wants to fall to from set temp 40 to 32. I set it higher and it climbs back up in time but will lower itself back down in a day or two. Why would it continue to cool...


The control board in the control panel should be regulating the air damper correctly. If the control board is responding this way the the damper is told to open too wide allowing colder temperatures into the fresh food section. The thermistor also may not be working properly or may and the board could be the total problem. This is going to be something that an Authorized Maytag Technician will need to have a look over. Switching the Control Board Part number W10207861 Temperature Control Board and 12002356 Thermistor just may solve this. Sea Breeze

Maytag Fridge (Model # MZD2766GEW) not cooling


Check to see if you have frost on the back panel of your freezer in your fridge. If you do your coil is frozen over and you'll have to defrost your freezer. I just did mine cause mine wasn't cooling properly on my fridge side.

Freezer and Fridge temperature not very cold


I can find only one good reason why your refrigerator may not be cooling. There is a control board inside the fresh food compartment and no signs of a defrost timer. If there is someone that go through some test to eliminate other possible problems would be good. If the refrigerator is still running, unplug and open the freezer compartment. Remove the back panel so we can have a look at the evaporator coils. Clean or are they frozen with a large piece of ice? Let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze
