You have a problem with your defrost system. The defrost heater is not coming on to thaw the frost that builds up on your evaporator coils. This restricts the airflow to the ref side. You will need to find out which component needs to be replaced it could be your defrost control, defrost thermostat, or defrost heater. The heater and thermostat are located behind the freezer panel. The heater can be ohmed out with a meter and tested for continuity, the thermostat will usually be popped out if its bad. If both of these parts are good then the problem is your defrost control, my model look-up is down right now but it could be a circuit board or just a standard "timer" style control.

Hope this helps _MJ_

Why is my freezer warming up?


Sounds like your heater/defroster went bad and by now there is probably ice build up and fan can not push the cold air to the freezer. Very easy fix but you will have to buy new heating cable ($25-40) and strongly advise to buy a new thermostat as well(around$10) it snaps on heating cable and controls power to heating cable whenever there is ice build up.

Side by side refrigerator will not cool on refrigerator side plus a build of ice temp control, model # psb2151grw


It sounds like your freezers' evaporator coils are not defrosting normally.At least once a day ,a refrigerator automatically defrosts the coils in the rear of the freezer compartment.In most cases ,the electric heater that is activated by a timer circuit,comes on and melts any ice buildup .If that heater doesn't come on for several days,the ice builds up into a solid block,and it doesnt allow any air to pass thru to the refrigerator side of you box.

Airflow around the condenser grill is very important. So you should take off the front grill and vacuum out that area the best you can.

Since this is a gradual warming trend you might have ice build up on your evaporator coils (usually means that defrost circuit malfuntioning). If you remove the food, shelves and back panel of your freezer section, you will be able to see if there is ice build up. If there is, unplug the unit and then use a hair dryer to melt the ice. Make sure you are ready to deal with the ice melt with either spongs and bucket or a wet/dry vac.

I have a Maytag Plus side by side with Ice maker and water dispenser in the door. I have replaced both water valves and still cannot get water to the ice maker. The water to the water dispenser in the door...


First you need to make sure the ice maker works. One way to test it is to manually put water into the ice maker and wait a few hours and see if it pushed the ice out. If it did not you need to find out why the ice maker does not work. There are many reasons for that; that would be a new chapter. If the ice maker does dispense the ice but does not turn on the valve you would need to find a loose connection. There is a way to test the "water fill" after removing the ice maker, but it is a little tricky. Then also, sometimes the fill tube inside the freezer freezes; that is another problem al together.

I have a Maytag plus, side by side fridge (MSD2758DRB) that is leaking from the freezer side, bottem of the door where the plastic tube comes out, what can i do to find out how to fix it!


Same problem here, took apart the entire door. Most likely it's a problem with ice defrosting inside the door. It was not the tube that runs through the door, there are no joints or washers inside. Perhaps seal on door edge is letting warm air through.

Something has stopped the cold air being ducted from freezer side to refrigerator side of things. Possibly duct blocked due to ice build up, evaporator not self defrosting etc. Turn unit off for a few days till it melts and then turn back on. If it was because a door has been left slightly open you will be ok. If for any other reason you will want to have it serviced in the next week or so.
