    you guys were right, was a defrost problem, had to replace the defrost control board, Allied American came by same day about an hour after I called at about half the price of Maytag servicer who couldn't come until tomorrow. Thanks all, and Allied checked out as a BBB member in good standing, so I gave 'em a shot and they did good, no new refrige for me, yea!!

    My Wide-by-Side is not making noise, but it started with a light frost on back wall, then the ice was melting and making icicles. The refrigerator is warm. The repairman changed the thermostat, which worked for two days, and now it is "dead" again. I emptied it, turned it to "off", left doors open all night to defrost. Any ideas what the real problem might be?

    Have model MSD2756GES and ours also had clicking noise from top of refrigeratator side--like grating fan noise. Would only last a couple of minutes off and on, some days not at all. Now noticed yesterday refrigerator side is not as cold and getting warmer. What is it? Thanks.

Same issue with my 6 yr old Maytag side-by-side model #MSD2756GEW. Turned out it was caused by a faulty circuit board. This circuit board is located in the upper right fridge section. Apparently these boards are sensitive to power surges (which we have here in central Texas from time to time.) When the circuit board is fried, it makes a noise like a fan blade malfunctioning and it stops the auto defrost feature in the freezer from working. So the freezer ices up at the back, and the ice prevents the cold air from reaching the fridge section.

Our circuit board (which we thought was a fan) made ominous noises for a few months. (The noise would last only a minute or so and stop shortly after we opened a door). Eventually we noticed that the fridge wasn't as cold and the freezer had snow in it. Finally the board stopped making noise and about a week or so afterward we noticed that the milk had spoiled and the fridge wasn't very cold. The food in the freezer side pretty solidly frozen, thankfully.

In addition to replacing the circuit board, the fridge had to be de-iced or it would not work properly. I put it all frozen into a large camping cooler where it stayed for several hours. I opened the freezer doors and put table fan and pointed a hobby light which gets quite hot, at the back of the freezer. Within 3 hours, the ice had melted significantly so I could see through the grate at the back of the freezer. This really great technician named Tracy, made a special trip to the parts store to get the circuit board and came back within a couple hours, bringing with him a steamer. He removed the back panel inside the freezer section (the coils are behind there) and used the steamer to melt the rest of the ice before he left.

Tracey, who works for a local appliance repair company, told me that about 4 years ago, Maytag started making their fridges with built-in surge protection, so the circuit boards apparently don't get fried on the newer models as they do on my 6 yr old model. He recommended that we put plug the fridge into a heavy-duty surge protector - which we are definitely going to do.

The meat drawer does not maintain a 31 degree temp. I have the ClimateZone storage drawers on a mzd2768geq Maytag wide by side. The temps for meats has been ranging around 44 degrees...which is not cold enough. The climatezone compartments is one of the big reasons for buying this model, now it doesn't seem to be working properly. Is there something I can do to fix it myself?

Hello,
I'm having problems with my Maytag fridge. The problem: the power switches off all the electricity in our house....ie. the fuse goes off. We put it back on again and plug the fridge onto a different power point, then after 20min, the power goes off again. What can I do to solve this?

Thanks in advance for your help.

  • robert samples Feb 13, 2008

    you might very well be right there is a fan in the fridge and it has auto damper and as dr cool knows the fan don't run in the freezer with a defrost problem he must have missed what you wrote let me see how we can check that fan be right back ok

  • robert samples Feb 13, 2008

    does your unit have the climate zone technoligy on it

  • robert samples Feb 13, 2008

    this is a complicated unit has duel fans in the fridge side and automatic damper control system so what i reccomend is to go here and get a authorized servicer now the advantages of an authrized servicer is if its an extended warrenty promblem he can save you some cash if you have a promblem with the service you can call maytag cust relations and because they reccomended him they can act as a go between to help you get satisfaction or he loses his authorization which no servicer wants to happen go here enter your zip code and it will give you a list in your area

Refrigerator stopped cooling 2 days ago. Freezer works fine. What is broken? Appliance is four years old. Replaced compressor almost exactly 1 year ago.


Check the fan in the freezer and be sure it's working, isn't blocked by product or isn't clogged with ice. If this fan isn't working the refrigerator section won't cool properly.

Maytag Widey Side not cooling enough


Check to see if you have frost on the back panel of your freezer in your fridge. If you do your coil is frozen over and you'll have to defrost your freezer. I just did mine cause mine wasn't cooling properly on my fridge side. If it is that it's going to fill the pan under your fridge and overflow.
