Maytag S/S model # MSD2756GEB

Maytag Model MSD2756GEB having cooling problems. Refrigerator not cooling at all. Coils in the freezer are completely frozen - sheet of ice. Damper is frozen as well. It appears the reason the refrigerator is not cooling is because the damper is frozen but I need to know what to do to fix this.

    I'm having the exact same problem. The fan runs but almost every other week I'm defrosting my Frost Free Refrigerator. Could the condenser or compressor be out of Freon? The refrigerator is 7 years old though.

Di you see or hear the fan running fan might be stuck check that out no fan no circulating cold air you may have problem with the heating element what make frost free inside you should melt all the ice inside around the damper check if you see broken glass the little heating element if it not broken and listen for that important fan if it running check it uot thank for using fixya pierre

Maytag refrigerator not cooling and freezer has frost over coils/vents


Your refrigerator is not defrosting.
3 parts that can be contributing to your issue.
1. Defrost Timer/ Defrost board. Without knowing the model, if it is older, you have a timer, newer ones have a control board that does the same thing. Lots of maytags with the boards have issues.
2. Defrost Bimetal- found at the coils, the bimetal could be bad-cheap part.
3. Defrost Heater- least likely for a maytag to have a problem with the heater.

MSD2756GEB maytag. freezer is working properly.


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Refrig not cooling Freezer has frost build up on coils


Frost on the coils won't allow air to pass to the fresh food section, thus resulting in insufficient cooling. To eliminate this problem, you will have to get a new adaptive defrost timer ( small board ), and a defrost heater assembly.

Frige not cooling


Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils or a condenser that is clogged with dust, lint, and dirt.

Evaporator coils Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils. You can't see these coils without removing a panel on the inside of your freezer. A sure sign that there is a build-up is the presence of any frost or ice build-up on the inside walls, floor, or ceiling of the freezer. Such a frost build-up usually indicates a problem in the self-defrosting system or damaged door gaskets.

The refrigerator is supposed to self-defrost approximately four times in every 24 hour period. If one of the components in the self-defrosting system fails, the refrigerator continues to try to cool. Eventually, though, so much frost builds up on the evaporator coils that the circulating fan can't draw air over the coils. There may still be a small amount of cooling because the coils are icy, but with no air flow over the coils, cooling in the refrigerator compartment is quite limited.

Here's an inexpensive, though inconvenient, way to determine if the problem is with the self-defrosting system. Remove all of the perishable food from the refrigerator and freezer, turn the thermostat in the refrigerator to Off, and leave the doors open for 24 to 48 hours. (Be sure to have several towels ready in case the melting frost and ice causes the drip pan to overflow). This allows the refrigerator to defrost "manually." When the frost and ice build-up has completely melted away, turn the thermostat back to a normal setting. If the refrigerator then cools properly, it indicates a problem with one of three components in the self-defrosting system:

  • The defrost timer


  • The defrost thermostat (also called the bi-metal switch)


  • The defrost heater


If it still does not cool properly, there may be a problem with the refrigerant level or the compressor. You may need to consult with a qualified appliance repair technician to further diagnose the problem

Condenser Self-defrosting refrigerators all have a set of coils and a cooling fan, usually under the refrigerator, that need to be cleaned regularly. If these coils get coated with dust, dirt or lint, the refrigerator may not cool properly. The coils may appear to be a thin, black, wide radiator-like device behind the lower kick-panel. To clean them, disconnect the refrigerator from the power source, use a refrigerator condenser brush (see the Appliance Accessories section) and your vacuum cleaner to clean the coils of any lint, pet hair, etc. You may not be able to get to all of the condenser from the front, it may be necessary to clean the remainder of the condenser from the rear of the refrigerator.

MSD2756GEB (Side By Side) Runs All the time


I went to the Maytag site and found a similar QA area and found a short article that talked about frost build up and/or blockage of any sort preventing airflow from the freezer compartment to the refrigerator compartment. They said this would impact proper operation of the refrigerator.

I emptied out the freezer after I inspected and found significant frost/ice in the upper right hand corner around the "scoop" that directs airflow into the refrigerator compartment. I took that off and removed all the ice build up (almost 1/2 blockage). I then removed the entire back panel and noticed that my refrigeration unit was completely iced up with significant build up around all the wires and thermostat.

I defrosted the entire unit with the aid of a hairdryer (at a safe distance so not to over heat anything) and then made sure my evaporator coils were all clean in the back and turned the refrigerator back on. (I unplugged it during the defrost operation.) I made sure that the fans worked both above the interior refrigeration unit and at the evaporator unit. Then I waited for the compressor to kick on.

Wallah! Everything so far was working so I put the rear panel back together in the freezer section, closed her up and waited to see what would happen. So far I've had to turn down the refrigerator section to around 5 and the freezer to about 4. The unit now seems to run correctly, shutting off after it runs for a while.

So I guess I'll wait and see how long this defrosting step works. Maybe the self defrost switch or something is not working and the problem will return in a month or so. We'll see..............

Maytag plus refrigetor not cooling model msd2756geb


after removing all of the freezer racks and shelf pull the 4 1/4 inch screws out at the bottom back panel of the freezer. pull the 2 panels off and slide them out strait down to the floor of the freezer. if your freezer coils are full of snow and ice then the fan cant pull any cold air up into the refrigerator.your problem is probably th defrost adaptive timer. if the heater ohms out at around 20 to 30 ohms it is ok. next ohm the 2 white wires at the plug this is checking the thermostat it shoud ohm out at aproximately 240 k ohms if those 2 things check out the problem is the adaptive defrost timer it is in the ceiling behind the temperature controls on yhe right side.
