Maytag MSD2651HEQ frige not cooling; can hear/feel fan blowing


How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php

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 In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.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.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Is my compressor must be replace?


The easiest way for you to find out is to bear the expense of buying the start relay/overload assembly mounted to the pins of the compressor, along with the run capacitor. If this starts it and runs with low amps, like 1-3, you're likely safe. Don't buy food for 24 hours. Sometimes the compressor won't seize again for hours afterward if it has been allowed to cool down before replacing relay.

I have a frige that won't freeze. fridge side won't get cold


This seems to be a common problem with these refrigerators. I had the same problem a while back. Sounds like your defrost board is dead. part number is 12002104. You can find it at searspartsdirect.com

Fan running,both cold settings at 4 , freezer 14 degrees C


you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.

Ice maker and frige


A COMMON FAILURE FOR THE WHIRLPOOL REFRIGERATORS THAT CAUSE NO COOLING IN THE FREEZER IS A BAD RELAY ON THE COMPRESSOR.
LISTEN CLOSELY FOR ABOUT 5 MINUTES TO THE BACK OF THE REFRIGERATOR. IF YOU HEAR A CLICK AND THE COMPRESSOR HUMS AND THEN CLICKS AGAIN AND SHUTS OFF THE COMPRESSOR, THE RELAY IS MOST LIKELY BAD. ABOUT A 40 DOLLAR COMPONENT.
ALSO, CHECK THE FREEZER BACK WALL. IF IT IS FROSTED UP, THERE IS A FAILURE OF THE DEFROST CYCLE. YOU WOULD HAVE TO CHECK THREE COMPONENTS. THE DEFROST CONTROL, HEATER, AND BI-METAL.

Maytag side by side slowly getting warmer


I have a Maytag msd2422gr side-by-side that has gradually stopped cooling 2 or 3 times.  The solution is cheap and easy: Your unit isn't cooling because the space in which the fan is housed is so full of ice you are getting no cold air circulation. The compressor and everything else is functioning, but the cold that is being produced is blocked by ice. All you need to do is to unplug the unit and entirely unload the freezer. Locate a panel with vent slots on the back wall of the freezer compartment that covers the fan. It is held on by about 4 screws. Lift out the panel and behold the glacier of ice covering the coils. You might want to use a hair dryer or space heater to hasten the melting, but I would warn against trying to chip or break it out because you will probably ruin or puncture an important part. Once all the ice is gone, reassemble and plug it back in. As I recall, it takes a few minutes for the compressor to get going again, but be patient because, if there was ice, that was your problem and if it is now gone, that is your solution. It can't help but work. And from now on, you know to be careful not over-load and block those vent slots in the back of your freezer.  If all else fails go here and get great, free help and every part you could possibly need:  http://www.repairclinic.com/RepairHelp/RepairHelp.aspx
