The compressor start relay or start capacitor is defective and I will need to go through this in a step by step process until we locate the problem For now unplug the refrigerator to prevent compressor damage until we locate the problem. Let me know when you are ready. Sea Breeze

Maytag refrigerator / freezer compressor fan not running and some items in freezer appear to be thawing


Check to see if the fan mount bent somehow. The fan blade just might be jammed. If not see if the fan is getting power. The unit will not cool properly if the compressor and condenser are not being cooled down by that fan.

My refrigerator stopped cooling and my freezer stopped freezing but the freezer is still cooling


Same thing with our GE Eterna Series - off and on for the last two weeks. Took back panel off, looked around, vacuumed dust build up off of the fan blades, etc.; everything worked fine for five good days. Then frig went out stopped cooling. Off and on for the last week. Unplugging it works for a day then back to not freezing and or colling.

Hi I have a Sears, Kenmore refrigerator model #106.53382. The freezer has stopped freezing. Everything is defrosted. The lights all work, I hear sound. What could it be?


This is your defrost system that has gone out on this model. When this system goes out, everything thaws out because the defrost system has failed.

This is an easy repair if you want to attempt it yourself and you can save a lot of $$$$ by doing it on your own.

Just contact us at:

http://www.fixya.com/repair/d499389-accurate_appliance_repair_service from 7 AM until 9 PM CST and we will provide part removal/installation instructions for you when you get your parts through us.
We want to get you cooling and freezing again soon and we ship overnight for our customers.
Thanks, Ella
