    My Fan Motor is fine trying to find out if there is a defrost timer or sensor ?

    I have the same problem. My freezer works, but my fridge is not cool at all. I've checked to see if there are any problems with the fan/motor, but no problems exist in this area. Does anyone else have any other ideas on how to fix this problem? Any help will be appreciated.

This has to be the evap. fan motor. I have ran into this alot. If you take the vent off the topcenter of the freezer back panel useing a simple flat head unlock the clips. Once you see the fan blades push it with your finger carefully if it spins slow and little wobblely the motor has failed. If it turns not at all then check for 120V. going into the motor by unhooking it if you get 120V motor bad if you get nothing then the Jazzboard or Highvoltage control board has failed. To install a new fanmotor is easy take your time most parts come out with a flathead screw driver and 1/4inchnutdriver. Evap. fan motor is just clipped in.

Mine failed, the opening thingie for these is made of plastic and fails often according to my repairman, he replaced it with a metal one and I have no problems now!!! BTW a "thingie" is defined as the "vent" that lets cool air from the freezer into the refrigerator. That is the only thing that makes the fridge cool!

What would cause the freeze to be cooling normally and the refrigerator side to be at a temperature of 55 degrees?


all it does is the freezer gets cold,the evap fan blows cold air from the freezer into the fridge section so if the freezer is fine,check the air ducts in the fridge section,if a package or something is blocking the vent on the bottom it will get warm or also on your model you have a damper on the top where the air blow into the fridge section from the freezer,you have an electronic damper,there's a door that opens and closes to let the air in,when it's cold enough the door closes when it gets warm the door opens so either the damper is bad or the computer board that operates it is bad,also check the packages in the freezer,if you see frozen water droplets on the packages or ice on the shelves the door could have been left open and the air ducts freeze so no air can pass through,you can hit the air ducts with a hair dryer to melt them out but be careful,don't keep the heat on one spot for to long,you can damage the ducts,also when you open the freezer door you should hear the fan blowing,if not you could have a bad evap fan motor and the air isn't blowing over to the fridge section,the damper is like 45 dollars and the computer board is around 120 dollars,you can go onto the sears site,put your model number in and look at the controls and you can look up the parts.http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-MCD2257HEB/3048/0165000/M0703130/00006?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= copy and paste.open the freezer door,listen for the fan no fan bad motor,if the fan is blowing either the air ducts are frozen or you have a problem with the damper or board that operates the damper,you might want to call in a tech for this if it is the damper,it's a little tricky to do this job but that's up to you.good luck and i hope this helps you out.

Refrigerator not cooling. doesn't seem like fan is blowing. freezer still working


all that happens is the cold air from the freezer gets blown into the fridge section by the evap fan motor brhind the inside back wall of the freezer so if you open the freezer door and don't hear the fan blowing i would say that yes you do have a bad evap fan motor and that's why the fridge section is warm.next time send the brand name and model number so i can help you better

You should try to clean the coils under the fridge . Thats a simple thing to try .If your fridge /freezer cant remove the heat it wont cool ,also please make sure your doors are closing tight. We can start on all the free things you can try first..

Maytag side by side model GS24C8C3EV Refrigerator too warm


it is almost certainly a defrost problem. when fault has occured, remove freezer bzck panel and see if there is ice build-up. if so this confirms a defrost problem - possibly that the element is open circuit
