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.

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.
