Question about Maytag MSD2456G Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refrigerator not cold.

In the last few days (perhaps the past week or so) the refrigerator has not gotten cold, even though the thermostat setting has been adjusted close to "Coldest". The freezer still works, but the refrigerator will no longer get cold.

If the freezer section is still working ok then check for ice build up inside freezer on the back wall, its possible that the unit is not defrosting and ice is building up on the cooling coils, the most common culprit is the def thermostat. easiest way for you to get it going again fast is to manually def the coil.

remove the 2 screws about half way down the back freezer wall. then using a blow dryer def the ice from the coil.

since this refrig has an electronic def control i would recomend calling a reputable service company to check it further for you..

Freezer and refrigerator stop getting cold


Most likely it has a coolant leak or the compressor is bad. I would call GE as there may be a recall to repair this no matter if you are the original purchaser or not. Although with the amount of computerization in home appliances, it could be a main circuit board going bad.

The freezer is working extra well but the fridge is not getting cold even though it's set at 7


Check that the vent opening inside the fridge is not blocked. Depending on the age, some of them now have a filter that needs to be changed periodically. RepairClinic.com or Sears sometimes are able to give you an answer over the phone as to what else to check.

" The refrigerator never cycles offThe thermostat cycles the refrigerator on and off. The refrigerator normally runs as long as the temperature inside the refrigerator is higher than the set temperature. If the temperature inside the refrigerator is cold enough and the thermostat still does not cycle off, the thermostat may be defective. If so, you need to replace it, because it cannot be repaired. If the thermostat is not defective, you may have a problem with the sealed (refrigerant) system, in which case you should contact a qualified appliance repair technician.
