Fridge side not cold enough but freezer ok.

Hi, my Maytag Plus fridge MSD2756AEW, purchased used, has a great freezer but fridge side keeps getting warmer, so I defrosted it twice (the first time there was still ''crunchiness'' inside the back lower part of the freezer, so I did it a second time until no crunch. Worked fine for a few days. Then gets warmer - so I turned the freezer down to mid-way or lower, thinking that the sensor was getting info that it was already cold enough (I don't know if there's more than one sensor) - we're desperate - pd. $350 for this 2 weeks ago, can't afford another. Need to fix it ourselves. It's from 1999. Help!

It is possible that your adaptive defrost assembly found inside the fresh food section and behind the control panel is defective. If not we need to check the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. Sea Breeze

Our freezer and fridge or not keeping cold enough


This can be caused by the drain hole below freezer coil being blocked by ice. You MUST remove all ice in drain under freezer coil. Use turkey baster to squirt hot water into hole and use hairdryer to defrost. Possible defrost thermostat is defective. Unit never goes into defrost, ice forms on coil and in floor or back of freezer. After defrosting may work OK for a week or two but gradually gets warmer because ice is blocking ports where cool air gets to refrig. May also have water in refrig box. Can also be caused by defective defrost timer.

Maytag mff2557hew fridge not cooling. Freezer ok.


Sounds like the Freezer Fan is wearing out or is worn out. This fan problem is very hard to detect. The reason is that when the motor is starting to wear out the fan will spin, but at a much lower rpm. This is enough to keep the freezer cold. but will not ciculate enough air thru the freezer and the refrigerator to prevent freezer from and refrigerator from cooler. The cost to repair/replace this fan is a minimum of $300.00

The defrost thermostat is failing on these machines as well as the adaptive defrost control.
The compressor start relay is on recall from Maytag also.

Maytag side by side freezer works, fridge does not


the heat is from the condensor keeping the door from frezzing shut it is normal but you need to adjust the food compartment contorl it might say for a for a coler frezzor turn up then you do and the food compartment gets warmer all it is is a air baffle to alow more cold air into the food compartment turn the cold control half way its the one that has off on it and then turn the other control to a lower number to make more cold go into the food compartment

Maytag side by side model GS24C8C3EV Refrigerator too warm


it is almost certainly a defrost problem. when fault has occured, remove freezer bzck panel and see if there is ice build-up. if so this confirms a defrost problem - possibly that the element is open circuit
