Question about Maytag MSD2756G Side by Side Refrigerator

Maytag MSD 2756GE

Both the freezer and refrigerator are warm. It is running but will not get cold. About every three to four minutes I can hear a snapping kind of like a switch kicking in but nothing happens. This is only 4 years old.

    sounds like same issue except :

    1 only the fan is running

    2 cannot hear compressor working

    3 we heard a pop sound and saw light smoke ... smelled electrical like a capacitor on a main board or similar..

    Same problem here. All testing confirms a locked compressor. Have there been known problems with this ?
    Checked start cap and all's well there. The condenser fan along with the evap fans run as expected but ever minute of so you can hear the protector click on the compressor. It's supposed to be covered under warranty but it'll be a couple of weeks before they can get here

    I have the same problem with a MSD2756DE. Lights work, fans are blowing ,but no cooling or freezing. And it makes this loud static poppong noise every few minutes. I pulled off the bottom panel and I didn't find anything that looked like it was fried. It's 7.5 years old and conveiently went out of warranty at the first of the year. I have a service man coming but he's a few days away. What ever I do it will all come out of my pocket, plus wondering if I'll be better off just buying a new fridge.

    Nothing but problems with MSD2756GEQ, side by side. This is already after the fact of the first solution. I have the same problem as the first post. The refrigerator and the the freezer is not getting cold. After unplugging it for half a day and plugging it back in, it makes a clicking noise and then hums for about 5 seconds and then it clicks off. This happens every minute or so. My warranty expired last year and I did not extend the warranty. I don't want to call a service guy if I can fix it myself. The fridge is only about 6 1/2 years old. I searched the site for any similar problems and solutions. And came up with possible bad Relay/Overload Assy Kit or bad Compressor. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Mine doing the same thing. Friend's did the same thing too. The repair man told him it was defrosting too long. Can't be fixed. He said it was a defect and could not be repaired. He suggested getting a new kind, not a Maytag and HE sells them.

  • Anonymous Apr 26, 2009

    Exactly the same problem. Ohmed out from common to start and common to run and that was good. Compressor kicks on, but then the overload clicks it off, so the freezer is now the fridge and the fridge is being used to store screws and stuff. I believe it to be a bad compressor, but not easily replaceable. Will just be getting another fridge, but will never buy maytag.

Fully defrost this unit. Leave it open and off two about two days. Clean the condenser. Open the back and find the compressor and the largest pipe on it. Start the unit. It should frost and flash off to either wet, ice or dry in 5 minutes. If it stays frosty, call for warranty service. No idea what the snapping is.

The compressor block is what is under the Maytag Free recall parts --- you might check the website on Maytag.. Mine was starting to do that and the tech changed the part in about 5 minutes and that seems to fix the problem... I dont know if this will help or not but it is worth a try

I have an MSD 2756 AEW side by side, the fan in the freezer is blowing but it is not cold air so neither the freezer or fridge is cold. Do you have any idea what the problem could be?


The first thing I would do is remove the cover on the back of the fridge and check if the compressor is running. If it's not, then it could be the start device.

Remove the power from the fridge, pull out the start device from the compressor and shake it. If you can hear something inside is moving, replace the start device and the refrigerator will work fine.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Maytag RSW24EO refrigerator not cooling

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.

Fan running,both cold settings at 4 , freezer 14 degrees C

you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.
