    The refrigerator has quit cooling three times in the last 6 months (freezer is cold). Twice now they have replaced the computer control and now it has failed again. The evaporator in he freezer has frozen up again and is not defrosting. I can't believe that the computers are failing this quickly. There must be something wrong that is killing them. I think the unit is only about 7 years old. A piece of junk which is apparently unfixable. Some idea as to what the root cause of this problem is would be very appreciated.

    On my Maytag refer I have the same problem. The coils are freezing up and reducing the air-flow into the refrigerator. Because of this the refer part of the side by side is not chilling adequately. I was looking at possible changing out the control board but I feel there may be a problem with the baffle/dampner above the blower. Have you any suggestions.

It ended up being a faulty defrost control (piece in the ceiling of the fridge side). I had been hearing vibrating noise from that area off and on for a few weeks. But before this piece was replaced, the back of the freezer had to be opened up (from the front side) and the ice had to be melted away. All in all, it cost me $180 to get it fixed by an appliance guy. I probably could have done it cheaper, but didn't have them time right now with my job. Besides, all my food was melting!

Refrigerator warm freezer fine
I already checked everything that it says in the manual. I even defrosted the ice that was in the freezer below the fan towards the back. With that it started to get cool but then the next day it just started getting warm again. What else can I do?

Something has stopped the cold air being ducted from freezer side to refrigerator side of things. Possibly duct blocked due to ice build up, evaporator not self defrosting etc. Turn unit off for a few days till it melts and then turn back on. If it was because a door has been left slightly open you will be ok. If for any other reason you will want to have it serviced in the next week or so.

How do I keep my refrig/freezer from defrosting in the winter when store in the garage.


There is only one source of cold in many refrigerators. If yours is a top freezer, then most likely it is in the freezer.
But the thermostat that you set temperature with is in the refrigerator, not the freezer.
In the cold garages, what can happen is that the refrigerator stays cold enough that it does not call for cold. So the freezer does not get enough cold.
The freezer control works by diverting cold air into the freezer WHEN THE RERIGERATOR HAS TURNED ON THE COOLING. If it is not turned on, oh well.
The best you can do for this is to put both on max cold. Then the refrigerator will call for more cold at a lower temperature, and the freezer will get it more often and will divert more when it is cooling.
This can result in the refrigerator freezing things too. You can try raising the refrigerator setting JUST A LITTLE and see if both work, but keep freezer on max cool.
This works for my situation, but ambient temperature fluctuations in the garage make this dicey. We don't put things like lettuce in the refrigerator in the garage in the winter because freezing damages them.
Good Luck

You don't have enough cold air circulating over into the refrigerator section. This is usually controlled by an adjustable "flap" or door which is hooked to a conrol knob. When you rotate the knob you change the size of the opening which controls the air flow to the refrigerator secton. Also you may may have something blocking this air flow -- --- - like a wrapper from an ice cream bar, etc. Try to find the opening between the freezer and refrigerator sections and look for an obstruction.

Usually when this happens it can be a couple of things. Push on the back wall of the freezer and see if you hear a crunching noise like walking on snow. If so then you have a defrost issue that isn't allowing the evap fan motor to push the cold air into the fresh food compartment. If not, push the door switch so the light goes out, now you should hear a fan running, if not then the evap motor has failed. If both of these are good, remove the toe kick and clean the lint and such out from under the refrigerator. This can cause the condenser to run hot and not cool properly. You should also feel air movement down there as well. Hope this helps.
