2 Answers

Maytag MFD2561HES I previously posted this problem, but had the wrong model number on the post, and the solution did not work because I messed up the model number. My problem is: Everything in the left crisper freezes, and the water dispenser (on left wall) is froze up and does not work..Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank-you!!

Check your thermostat setting. you could have set it too low. if not , you can see and check if it uses a duct thermostat where in it supposed to close the duct if the temperature of the cabinet is already cold. it may be stuck open.

I just went through this problem after a major power outage from our December 2007 ice storm. I was able to reset the controller (computer?) to factory defaults and the water dispenser started working. I think it was just confused!

My kenmore side by side is not producing ice and there is a red light blinking inside the freezer sec

Can you locate your model number inside the fresh food section around door frame? I believe you have the ice maker with the electronic eye and sounds like you need to follow these instructions so the ice maker works again. If I am wrong then please correct me by posting your model number that should look like this example=> 321.234567 Click Here=> Whirlpool Ice Maker Infrared Electronic Eye Technical Information I am here if you need to ask questions, Sea Breeze

My Maytag Refrigerator is not Cooling enough. My Freezer works fine and we have unplugged and let everything defrost and plugged back in but still not working properly. Model # is MFD2561HES

Its possible the evaporator fan is bad. Air is drawn from freezer to cool the refrigerator side and ultimately controlled by the fridge side thermostat. Or... Low freon.

Frigidaire fridge will not stop beeping and will not turn on

The only thing that I know could be causing the problems is the=> 5303918476 Defrost Control Board

This part is behind the control panel inside the fresh food section where you adjust the temperatures. Let me know if you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze
You obviously have the wrong model number listed on your post. ?? What is the correct model number listed on your model? The model mentioned in your post has mechanical thermostat and yours has didital.

When ice maker kicks on water comes out front water despensor and not in ice maker

Did someone switch the water dispenser side of the dual water control valve wiring to the wrong side? If someone has switched the wires around not knowing the difference this will happen. Look around the fresh food section door frame for the mofel number of your refrigerator. If you post the model number I may be able to provide a wiring diagram. Without the model number I will only guess what model you have. Also there may be more involved here. Please provide a model number so I know what you have. Thanks Sea Breeze

KitchenAid Superba KRA22ILBL00 water dispenser not working

When the dual water control valve is worn out they tend to buzz, hum and sometimes melt plastic housing around coil. Some even have the plunger stuck inside. Best thing to do is replace. I was not able to find a model KRA22ILBL00 in the US database but if that is your model number I would replace the water control valve, Thanks Sea Breeze

Maytag MFD2561HES Freezer Door Locked, How do I get it open?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Here is the users manual that is probably inside the door you can not get open:

Find your model number and download the maual. The last 3 figits HES there is a problem with the number you passed. I am using this manual as a reference:

If your unit has the mini handle on the top right or top left gently lift and swing the door open. If you have the lone horizontal handle on the front of the freezer door it just pulls open and slides out.

If this is a NEW unit... you must remove the shipping tape from the door (2 to 3 places) to get it open.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
