Question about Maytag MZD2766GES Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Freezer producing frost

I have a maytag side by side and its making way too much frost. I take about a snowballs worth off every 90 minutes. Its so much its chocking the machine out. Temps rise cause of it. Ive repeatedly used a hairdryer to defrost and it comes back overnight and machine rises in temp again. Condensor in the back runs. It cools when cleaned off. Just refuses to stay cleaned off. I have water running to it for the ice machine and have even turned the water off. Where is all the moisture coming from. Appreciate any help.

This seems to be a common problem with these refrigerators. I had the same problem a while back. Sounds like your defrost board is dead. part number is 12002104. You can find it at searspartsdirect.com

Jenn air side by side JCD2389GES ****** still won


If there are only a few rows producing cold from the freezer it may be a Freon leak. Remove the rear panel inside the back wall of your freezer and examine the frost pattern. When a refrigerator has enough Freon it will have the complete evaporator covered with frost. Here is a photo of what a frost pattern looks like with only a few rows.

Frost Pattern Only Two Rows

Unfortunately if this is what you see with evaporator exposed you will be better off shopping for a new replacement refrigerator because the cost to repair is just not worth the expense to have someone repair your refrigerator. If you have questions please ask, Thanks Sea Breeze

I assume if my maytag msd2554dr has water coming out of freezer side I have a clogged drain. I have ice build up on bottom of inside freezer What causes the drain to get clogged in the first place?


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Freezer working, not making ice; refrigerator not cooling


Look for excessive frost build up in the freezer, there may be a problem with the defrost cycle.

Maytag side by side is leaking water from the freezer sid


We also had the exact same problem with our Maytag side by side. We kept getting a small puddle down on the floor under the freezer side of the unit. There was also a giant ice block puddle that had formed on the inside bottom of the freezer compartment. We solved the problem in about an hour. First, we pulled the unit out from the wall and checked behind and underneath the unit with a flashlight. The little drip pan that collects the water was completely dry. That told us that there was a plug somewhere in the drain line. We removed all of the food and shelves inside the freezer so we could access the inside, back panel. My husband unscrewed the two bolts and removed both panels. We found the problem. The drain pan had frozen and all of the water was overflowing inside the freezer compartment and ultimately out onto our floor. There was also a giant snowball around all of the wiring. We used a heat gun and gently de-iced the snowball and the ice in the drain pan. The manual also says you can use a hairdryer for this. Then, my husband used his air compressor and gently blew into the hole to clear out the blockage. We checked behind the unit again and saw that the clog had released and water was flowing into the drip pan. Problem solved. It is important to get the clog out of the drain line so that the problem doesn't occur again. We put everything back together and everything seems fine now. I am also going to check the defrost timer to make sure it is timing properly every 28 minutes or so. You need your manual for this to determine steps to check the timer. It is important for the timer to be set correctly so that the unit goes into defrost mode every 28 minutes. This will also help keep the water flowing and draining w/out having time to completely freeze up. The original root cause of our problem is we had a faulty ice-maker. It had overflowed about 3 months ago. The heavy surge of water, and the small plug in the line is what started this. Another problem we have had with this unit is the plastic tubing in the back. We had one of the lines turn yellow and crack. So every few months we pull the unit out from the wall, vacuum underneath and check the plastic tubing for leaks and breakage.

Ice maker doesn't make enough ice to supply two senior citizens. This is the 2nd refrigerator we have had installed this month. What can we do to increase the amount of ice it puts out. The ice bin has...


Found in the FAQ section on Samsung.com:
Samsung refrigerator freezers produce about 120 cubes per day, which is in line with most manufacturer specifications.
Empty the ice tray and let the unit run for 24 hours.
If fewer than 50 cubes are produced during the 24-hour test, then your refrigerator requires service. Please contact Samsung Service at 1-800-SAMSUNG to schedule a service appointment.
If your freezer is producing 50 to 90 cubes per day, try the following:
  • Set the freezer temperature display to a lower setting. Freezer temperature must be 5 degrees Fahrenheit or less for the ice maker to work properly.
  • Make sure that the water valve on the refrigerator water supply line is completely open. You can find the water valve where the refrigerator water supply line taps into your house water line.
  • If you have a water filter in your refrigerator, change the filter cartridge. For instructions, see your Users Manual.
If you want your freezer to produce more than 120 ice cubes in a day, try the following:
  • An ice maker typically makes 1 tray of ice every 90 minutes. To shorten the amount of time the freezer takes to produce a tray of ice, set the freezer temperature display to a lower setting.
  • If your refrigerator has a Power Freeze function, press the Power Freeze button to speed up the ice making process. In the Power Freeze mode, both the compressor and the freezer fan run for 10 hours continuously. The ice making interval is reduced from 90 minutes to 55 minutes. If the ice bucket fills in less than 10 hours, Power Freeze stops automatically.
NOTE: If you have just installed your refrigerator, it will take 6 to 12 hours for the refrigerator to produce ice.
You should throw away the first three batches of ice cubes that the ice maker produces (approximately 30 cubes) to ensure the ice maker is making ice from clean water.

Fully defrost this unit. Leave it open and off two about two days. Clean the condenser. Open the back and find the compressor and the largest pipe on it. Start the unit. It should frost and flash off to either wet, ice or dry in 5 minutes. If it stays frosty, call for warranty service. No idea what the snapping is.

Need help on Maytag Plus Ref


First check for a thick frost buildup on the back panel of the freezer at the bottom.  Also, check to see if the fan in the freezer is running.  Let me know what you find so I can lead you in the right direction.
