Question about Maytag MZD2766GES Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refrigerator not cooling but freezer is

My Maytag Side by Side is about 6 years old and the refrigerator suddenly stopped cooling. The freezer seems to be working fine. The refrigerator side stays cooler than room termperature but probably because it is receiving some cool air from the freezer. Changing the temperature control does not seem to make any difference.

    Thanks for the tip. I shut down the appliance for a day or two which gave me time to clean it up and glue back on the broken shelf supports which didn't seem to want to hold when it was cool inside. Then I turned the unit back on and everything seems fine. Excellent advice.

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.

The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at jboooor@hotmail.com
