Re: Maytag

On some Maytags if the defrost thermostat in the freezer gets above its setting (around 50 degrees) the fans won't run. It shouldn't be like that very long...10 minutes tops then they'll come on all by themselves.

Maytag refrigerator model# MFI2569YEM0 won't cool or freeze. Woke up to the alarms going off for the temp. Replaced the relay start thinking that was it, but did not fix the problem.

Check to see if the compressor is running you can fee it vibrating and the fans next to it should be running if it not running but fan is may be overload protector

Both fridge and freezer keep rising in temp, seems to be running constantly. Only about 3 years old. Replaced the board in it, seemed to run quietly for one day keeping proper temps, now back to running...

when you install a new board you have to check i think it's the 9 pin connector,the instructions will tell you what one it is,if there's a wire in the second pin you need to cut the wire or the machine won't run correctly.

Maytag side by side fridge keeps making a rattling noise when it is running. if i shift the fridge it will stop for a minute but it starts back up again.

See if the noise is coming from the compressor. It's around back behind the cardboard cover. If it is That's usually mounts inside the compressor. It could still last awhile so if you can put up with the noise just wait for it to quit before replacing the compressor or getting a new fridge.

8 yr old maytag msd2758drw side by side isn't freezing

If the clicking noise is comming from the rear of the frig it could be your compressor trying to start. The motor would be the fan in the freezer running. That part would be normal.
If it is the compressor it could be replaced but if it were me I would buy a new frig.

Fridge acts like compressor is not coming on - Maytag wide by side - seven yrs. old

Pull the refrig out and remove the back panel . You should see the compressor and the cooling fan ( condenser fan ) . If the fan isn't working , it needs to be replaced . If the compressor isn't running or starts then cuts off , then the box plugged onto the side of the compressor , with 3 wires going to it ( overload/relay ) needs to be replaced .

My fridge clicking, buzzing and then clicking back off. Inside it was starting to warm up and was starting to leak water onto the floor. Today someone came out and replaced the relay. After 4 hours the...

Hello, no if the compressor is still running and you are not hearing the click you should be ok. It will take approx 8-10 hours for it to get to normal temp. The frost you mention on the freezer panel could be a problem with the defrost system. I would leave it over night and check it tomorrow. If there is a major ice build up comment back and i will assist you further. Mike

Amana evaporative fan intermittent

I would first suspect that the fan motor shaft just has gunk on it keeping it from starting -- clean & lubricate both ends of the motor.

If this doesn't solve the problem, it's the motor start capacitor -- could be inside the motor housing or could be outboard, connected to it via the wiring harness. A capacitor is a lot cheaper than a fan...
