Question about Maytag MSD2456G Side by Side Refrigerator

Everything in my frig is frozen

I have my thermostat turned up all the way 44 degrees (is as high as it will go). EVERYTHING is frozen in the frig, Had on technician place putty in the vents (ABT Electonics) and that has done nothing. Please send suggestions I am tired of throwing food away. Also I cant place anything on the top shelf. (rock solid) When there is nothing on the top shelf, white frost blows out (like a giant walk in freezer). My frig is a maytag french door with ice and water in the door and a bottom freezer. Thank you, Model #mfi2067aew

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp .. I don't know what he was doing with the putty unless he was stopping up the vent which won't work because you have to have the air circulation for the fridge section to work. The fridge temp control may be the problem.

    Hi, am having the same problem. Where would I find the flap? Is there a fuse between the door control and the flaps?

The frig is freezing everything down to the bottom drawers. Water, soda hamburger patties in the frig were frozen. It seems to be okay the first day and then it turns into a freezer. Any idea what I should...


Dometic refrigerators don't have the best thermostats, especially the one with multiple source (AC/DC/Propane) . They are also prone to be more sensitive when the propane was just topped up and the pressure is high.

Don't get me wrong, I think the Dometic is a great refrigerator for campers, you just have to learn to deal with its issues.

Also make sure that you have one fuel source selected at a time, and not all of them!

Our frig won't go below 44 degrees. I've checked the coils and they are frost free. The freezer is working fine. Is it a thermostat problem?


It sounds like the condenser coil is dirty. That's the coil under or in back of the frig. Other than that check the door make sure it's closing and the door gasket is not ripped. It may be letting in warm air. If the t-stat clicks when you turn the dial it's working.
I hope this helps.

Kenmore Fridge, freezer compartment is cold according to thermometer, but ice wont freeze & frozen foods thawing out, weird. Fridge part is about 65 degrees. What could it be?


Should be around 10 degrees.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Everything in frig is frozen and it won't turn off.


If the compressor is running non-stop then the temp. control is not telling it that it's "cold enough". If the compressor isn't running non-stop then you should look at the air damper (little window) that lets the freezer air into the refer compartment... if it's stuck open then you will always get cold air pushed into the fridge eventually becoming a freezer in itself.
