Question about Maytag MSD2756G Side by Side Refrigerator

Freezer not sending cold air to the Frige area.

The freezer works fine. The fan does not go one when the frige door is shut so the refrigerator never gets real cold.

The interior light in most refrigerators, and the fan in some, is controlled by a door switch. When the door is closed, the switch is depressed and the interior light goes off and the fan resumes normal operation. If the door is misaligned or the switch malfunctions, the refrigerator may become warm as a result of the non-operation of the evaporator fan and the heat generated by the interior light. Test the switch for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should change from a reading of infinity to zero when the probes touch the terminals. With the probes still touching the terminals depress the switch, the reading should change back to infinity. If it does not pass both of these tests, the switch should be replaced.

((If the switch is ok, and it passes the test, simply replace the fan)).

Hot door seal


Hi

There could be few reasons for your problem….
If your refrigerator is running too long or more than normal:
You may need to clean the condenser coils. This should be done about every 6 to 12 months. You can use a condenser cleaning brush, this comes in handy for cleaning hard to reach areas. Your refrigerator may be running too long, check the door gaskets for proper sealing, especially the bottom section. Clean the gasket surface where your door gaskets meets the metal with warm soapy water.
However there is a part of the condenser called the mullion loop that adds heat to keep moisture from building up and causing the door gaskets to stick. If it's too hot to the touch, first check your frige and freezer temps. You'll obviously know if the frige is too cold, but you may not know if the freezer is too cold. The freezer should be between 5-10 deg above zero. Any colder and the frige will have to work harder and would create more heat. Also check the condenser coils. If they are dirty it will prevent the frige from removing the heat properly. The condenser should be cleaned at least annually. Most friges have a condenser fan motor. Make sure the motor is running and the fan blades are clean. Most frdiges also have a cardboard type panel on the back at the bottom. That panel directs the air flow across the condenser and must be in place. If it's missing or damaged its need to be replaced.

Let us know if you have something more to ask else please accept the solution.

Refrigerator cold but not cold enough. freezer


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.

Refrigerator compartment cools correctly for a few days then no longer receives cold air from freezer. The freezer continues to operate and gets much colder than it should.


does your fan blow? freezers have a fan that pushes cold air to the fridge side if fan is bad freezer will run extremely cold and fridge won't cool down and since frige won't cool down thermostat in fridge doesn't tell compressor to stop

Bottom Freezer working but not side!


Typically the freezer air is circulated into the frige area to provide cooling. If the circ. fan is not working or the air ducts/channels/dampers are blocked with ice, food, etc. then no cool air will get from the freezer to the frige area. Check all the air channels and to see if the dampers are open along with the circulation fan running. The diagrams at the following link should help you see inside better. If your lower circulation fan is running then you likely have an air return/supply channel blocked with ice and will require an old style defrost (unplug unit and leave doors open for 24 hours to melt ice, etc.). If the fan isn't running then that needs to be replaced. Air channels can freeze up if a door is left open slightly overnight or other moisture enters the freezer/frige. http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=ER6AHKXPQ&searchTerm=&RefineSearch=0

Side by side freezer


Check that the freezer circulating fan is running. The frige section may have dampers or vents (lets the freezer air cool the refer section) that are open too much. Usually the bottom area in the frige has a control lever to meter how much cold air gets to that section (lots for meat, little for fruits, etc.). Check the owners manual for operation of those vent dampers.
