    Here is a link to you Service Manual Click Here=> MSD2655HE I want also to know if these controls are digital or mechanical. When you look through the manual be aware that you may see parts that are not on your refrigerator and that Maytag covers many models in their manuals. Let me know the questions I asked and tell me a little better about what is going on, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Can't fined the proper setting for the freezer dial?


Almost all freezer controls are manufactured to control temperature to the proper temperature control if you rotate CCW , notice the position and then rotate CW, notice the position and then go the the mid position. If temperature is not maintaining the required temperature, you may need a new temperature control thermostat installed. Before you replace the thermostat, check to make sure you have not overloaded the freezer compartment and, If you have an external condensing coil, that it is lint/dust free. Often times people seldom clean the external condensing unit and causes the loss of freezer temperature control. It is important to keep the condensing coil clean because that is where the heat is rejected to the surrounding air. Hope this helps.

STOPPED RUNNING


Hello Warner, thank you for your post!

Typically when a freezer displays "OFF" it means that the temperature control is in the off position. When this occurs the temperature control turns off the compressor, but does not disconnect the power to the light bulb or other electronics. Let's try re-activating your freezer by pressing the UP arrow until display shows "4" or desired setting. If the issue persists, then the freezer could possibly be experiencing a communication issue with the control board, temperature control or a potential wiring failure. At this point, I suggest reaching out to an appliance expert who is best equipped to pinpoint the exact problem.

Best of luck!

The temp only goes down to 30 farenheit. the thermostat control knob is set to the coldest position. is the thermostat faulty or can it be adjusted?


Check list:
Fans running
Compressor cool to the touch
Not short cycling (low freon)
coils cleaned
no air restrictions
If all of that is good bypass the control
see if it gets down to 0
If it does replace the control

Whirlpool Model ED5SHAXML12 is freezing food in refrigerator even when dial is at off. Happened from one day to the next.


At the refrig controls , the freezer control , controls how much air goes into the refrigerator section . Open the refrig door , and up at the top left , put your hand over the damper (air vent) . Turn the freezer control from high to low , and feel the difference in the air flow . If you turn your freezer control to a lower setting , less cold air will enter the refrig . Think of it as : the freezer control adjusts the temperature , and the refrig control , tells how long to run the compressor . In actuality , this is how it works . However , with the dial (refrigerator thermostat) in the off position and refrig still running , this indicates a bad thermostat . Pt # 2198202 .

Placing a refrigerator in the garage


IF YOUR GARAGE TEMP GOES BELOW 35 THE REF MAY NOT WORK WELL BECAUSE MOST REF HAVE THE THERMOSTAT AS THE REF CONTROL. THE TEMP IN THE BOX IS SENSED AT THAT POINT AND SHUTS OFF, THE REF SEEM TO WORK BUT THE FREEZER WILL WARM UP.
IF YOU WANT TO USE A REF IN THE GARAGE, FIND ONE THAT HAS THE THERMOSTAT CONTROL AS THE FREZER CONTROL. LOOK AT THE CONTROLS, THE ONE THAT HAS AN OFF POSITION IS THE CONTROL THAT IS THE THERMOSTAT. SO, THE FREZER CONTROL SHOULD SAY "OFF" SOME NEWER REF WITH FULL ELECTROINIC CONTROLS MAY WORK AS THEY HAVE INDIVIDUAL SENSORS FOR BOTH THE REF AND FREEZER SECTIONS.

Temperature settings


I don't have any instructions for your particular model but usually you start in the middle and adjust up or down as needed. (example if lettered A B C D E start with C). Most (but not all) refrigerators have an off position on either the refrigerator or the freezer but not both. Whichever control has a definate off position controls the coldness in both. The other control just adjusts the difference between fridge and freezer. Almost all refrigerators have cooling coils only in the freezer, the fridge is cooled by blowing cold air from the freezer.

Temperature control


I have a danby mini fridge and freezer and noticed the same problem. The temperature dial has NO NUMBERS ON IT! it just has a strip that goes from light to dark blue. That's it. I looked in the manual and it doesn't say anywhere which way is colder...it makes sense that the darker the blue the colder the temperature but why keep us guessing?
