Question about Maytag Refrigerators

2 Answers

My maytag model mtb2656ge refrigerator is frosting up in the back of the freezer. The freezer is bearly freezing the the frig is not cold enough. I think the frost is blocking the flow of cold air. Three weeks ago I defrosted the fridge. The problem was solved. However, it has come back.

Hello Sir,
It seems that your compressor/heater switching relay had gone defected. That is why the cooling unit gets choked after a particular time interval. The problem can be solved by changing the relay that is located underneath the Freezer's unit. In order to change the relay you have to remove (I) the ice rack (II) then you have to remove the plastic cover and the insulations of the freezer.
The relay is mounted to the metallic part of the cooling unit. The malfunction of the relay can be confirmed if you observe some moisture inside the water proof relay envelope ( the envelope in which the relay is sealed so that the water or moisture can be avoided to reach inside the relay mechanism).

Following is the link for manual and user guides for cleaning and maintenance.

This is a simple problem of defrost timer in the unit.the timer actually moves/spins slowly and controls the frost/defrost in the system.if the timer stops or gets very slow.this happens.the frost gets collected in the freezer section and refrigerator section becomes warm or not so cold. the timer is located beside the compressor near the compressor relay.its black or white colour box. the cost of timer is near to $40 and you can get it at www.repairclinic.com its very simple to replace the timer its fitted on 3-4 screws. Please dorate the solution. Thank you for using fixya.keep updated. thanks.

GE refrigerator isn't cold at all

Vegetable bin keep freezing food. Model # ED2CHOXKQ05


Hello,
That can be the result of a couple things. Check to see if you hear the fan running in the freezer side? If not, since cold air falls, the cold air could be migrating from the freezer into the frig bottom section through the air duct hole in the back of the frig behind the crisper drawers. If the fan is running the check the air damper in the top left of the frig section. If the frig side is cold enough you should not feel air blowing through. Air flow is only very slight. You will have to remove some plastic cover or duct piece to see if it is closing. If the air damper seems to be working properly, you may have a refrigeration problem indicated by frost build up on the lower part of the freezer back wall. You may want to call in a pro at that point. Hope this helps point you in the right direction. Good Luck

I have a MAytag top refrigerator bottom Freezer unit and the freezer is not cold enough to freeze icecream, I set it on max last night but no luck


Sounds to me that your model is not defrosting. Look into the back of freezer and tell me if you see a layer of frost building on the rear wall. If yes begin by manually defrosting and contact me with your model number. Either way I will try to help but that model number is important so I can pull up the same refrigerator you have and advise you on the steeps and parts required. Sea Breeze

Fridge works freezer isnt getting cold enough to freeze


check to see if you have frost on the back panel of the freezer if so then defrost the unit and if your able to find the failure of the defrst heater or defrst thermostat,or the defrost thmer more than likely its the mother board since its a general electric frig but if you manually defrost until a repair tect can come then it will run normal until it frost up again but before you call the tech out make sure you have the frost on the back panel otherwise he'll make several trip trying to solve the problem with the frig unless its the defrst heater

My MAYTAG FREEZER IS RUNNING ALL THE TIME AND FROSTING UP , ALL OF A SUDDEN. FRIDGE PART IS WORKING FINE. IT IS A TOP FREEZER MTB1976HE MODEL.


Sounds like your condenser is icing up and is not blowing enough cold air into the frig compartment to satisfy the thermostat.That is why the compressor with not shut off. You probably have a defrost problem due to a bad defrost heater of defrost thermostat (different from control thermostat) One solution is to shut of the frig to allow ice to melt off and restart to see if it repeats the same problem. Hope this helps

I have a Kenmore Cold Spot fridge, freezer on top. Fridge is warm, and freezer keeps freezing up on sides and bottom. I cleaned it all out, defrosted it, and it still freezes up and fridge still won't get...


Is this a self defrost model? Frost inside the freezer could be an air leak around the door gasket. Remove the back panel in the freezer and completely defrost the coils. Is the fan running in the freezer. That will make the frig not be cool. With the door closed peek in the gasket to make sure the light is shutting off, this will warm a frig also.

Freezer to cold refrigerator not cold enough


sounds like your defrost timer is not working properly . Most fridge/freezers the fridge gets cooled from the cool air from the freezer . But when the defrost timer is not working properly the section between the fridge and freezer freezes up and hence doesnt allow the flow of cool air into the fridge. The defrost timer can be easily replaced.
