1 Answer

Not getting cold, staying around 48 - 50 F

Maytag fridge ptb1954grw (Bought new in 2002 ) not getting cold, staying around 48 - 50 F. This fridge was part of a recall and on March 12 2009, I had the part replaced under the recall, something called a 3 in 1. Actually that would be the third one installed in this fridge, this same type of temperature problem happened in June 2006, and I paid a serviceman $200 to replace that same part.

Check the condenser coils. These are located at the rear, behind the panel. There should be frost all over the coils.
If not, and the frost is just on the first section then this indicates a slow refridgerant leak. I purchased mine in 2002 and it came with a 10 years parts and labour warranty on all parts of the refridgerant system. So hope you hung onto all your documents.

recall...........................................
  • SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC Recall for 2002 DODGE CARAVAN
    • Recall Announced MARCH 13 2006
    • NHTSA Reference #06E022000
    • Number Affected 7,440
    Summary: Certain aftermarket brake hydraulic master cylinders sold as replacement brake cylinders for certain Ford, DaimlerChrysler, and Jeep passenger vehicles. These brake cylinders were sold under the brand names of Napa, raybestos, aimco, ac delco, Carquest, bendix, and wagner. Only products that were manufactured from July 27, 2005 through January 17, 2006 (date codes 0529 through 0602) are subject to this recall. When subject to very cold temperatures, an internal seal in the master cylinder could lose flexibility and may cause brake fluid to leak.
    Consequence: Loss of brake fluid can lead to a decrease in brake line pressure and an increase in stopping distance, which can result in a vehicle crash.
    Fix: Affinia (brake parts, Inc.) will replace the subject brake hydraulic master cylinders free of charge. The recall began on March 20, 2006. Owners can contact affina group customer service at 1-800-323-0354.
    For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #06E022000 »

We brought a whirlpool fridge in november2009.it broke down in feb.2010 about the the 2nd we could not get parts for this fault until mid march.despite aphone call to your companywho promised to ring back...


This may not be the problem now but by the sound of the malfunctioning fridge, it could be in the future. The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at jboooor@hotmail.com

My Maytag msd2756geb freezer is too cold.


Hi,
You are probably right that it is always running. This is because the thermostat/sensor has gone bad. The fridge adjusts by a door that allows air to come from the freezer to the fridge side. Therefore this will still work...
You will need to replace or have the thermostat replaced....

Maytag fridge


Without knowing the type of fridge(side by side, freezer on top etc.) all I can offer is this: Somewhere between the freezer and the fridge there's an opening thermostatically controlled to transfer cold air from freezer to the fridge. Most have a fan to move the air. So either the fan (if so equipped) stopped, and need to replace, or opening is stuck closed, or plugged.
If freezer is working fine, this is the only problem I can think of.
Hope this helps
