Maytag MFD2560HES stay at 33 freezer and 50 fridge

I have this maytag MFD2560HES for about 2 1/2 years.

In june 2007 the problem was that freezer was working fine but fridge was @ 68. So I replaced the evaporator fan motor and fixed the problem.
Since then it happened 2 time that freezer @ 30 and fridge @ 50. Each time it came back up running by itself after one day and now it just happen again.

Recently i can hear the lound noise like bad hair clipper/trimmer from this fridge.

Any help greatly appreciated.

I've been told by a tech who repaired my MFD2560HEQ this past week that many of this model had a problem with compressor failure. Your symptoms are classic. What you are hearing is the starter relay trying to start a warm/hot compressor by supplying it with an extra jolt of electricity, but because of the faulty compressor (or if you are lucky a faulty relay) that's warm (cool ones start more easily often) is refusing to budge into motion and compress the freon. Maytag, I believe, has a five year warranty on the compressors. They did on mine, but unless you have an extended warranty the labor replacing it is not covered and that will be around 2-3 hours worth. This is the price we are paying for our quest for energy efficiency. Compressors are being built so small and light that they fail much more often than grandma's old, old refrigerator that was built like Fort Knox and ran for 45 years, remember? But we're being energy efficient! Thank you environmental extremists! I wish I could send you the repair bill.

Your fridge is out of prion there must be a leaked on the tube connecting to the motor..

try to touch the some tube that connect to the motor where prion was loaded, if you touch some oil outside, you better call a repairman to test it, because there's a possiblity when the oil leaks the motor could be broke.


thanks,

    Some adjustment to the electrical supply from the fridge, the motor make a noise when it oprerates, it could be you got a low voltage or it supply much higher for the volt needed..

    lucky the motor/compressor is Ok. now it's only a minor problem, you need a service tech to test and calibrate the proper power supply settings for your fridge.

Hi,
Sounds like an electrical fault.
check the balance or levelling of the unit.
could also be the compressor on the way out.
do you have any refigerant leaks ?

My maytag fridge isn't producing ice model #


see if the ice is frozen, there are three screws holding the ice maker in, two on top and one on bottom. The two top screws are teardrop screws and don't need to come all the way out. The bottom screw does need to come out. The electrical connection is a squeeze type and the unit should come out. Clean it out and re- insatll to see if that helps.

Hi, I have a Maytag (MFD2560HES) fridge. The Freezer is working but the fridge is not cooling. What could be the causes? Alton.


you need to check and make sure the evaporator fan is running in the freezer compartment while the unit is in the cooling mode if it is then check the damper in the top of the fridge and make sure it is opening all the way to allow the cold air in the fridge.if ti does not open it needs to replaced.
If the fan is not running it needs to be replaced also check for excessive ice build up in the freezer compartment that would also block the air flow

FRIDGE NOT COOLING


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. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..
Your damper and controls are on this diagram. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=MFD2560HES&productCategoryId=0161000&brandId=3048&modelName=MAYTAG-REFRIGERATION&diagramPageId=00006&componentDescription=CONTROLS&documentId=M0412077&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list

Not getting cold, staying around 48 - 50 F


Check the condenser coils. These are located at the rear, behind the panel. There should be frost all over the coils.
If not, and the frost is just on the first section then this indicates a slow refridgerant leak. I purchased mine in 2002 and it came with a 10 years parts and labour warranty on all parts of the refridgerant system. So hope you hung onto all your documents.

Fridge and freezer not working on new Maytag, Help!!


at 5 months old don't try to fix it yourself CALL the store where it was purchased or maytag
you may mess up the warranty if you try to fix it yourself
document all of the calls you make to where and who you spoke with at what time
ask for promises in writing have them fax it to you so you have the promise in hand

REF AND FREEZER STOP COOLING


We had a repairman come out, said it was the compressor, bad news...$650 if he repaired...good news...compressor under manufacturer's warranty for five years so you may want to call Maytag. It will be less expensive if the part is covered and you only have to pay for labor. Hope this helps. Bought our fridge 12/2004 so it was covered.

Warm Fridge Section


sounds like the evaporator fan in the freezer is not moving the air. also there is an air damper door at the top center of the fridge that controls air flow from the freezer to the fridge. check those two components and you will find your problem.
