First things to check are if you fan is working or not after you confirm that the fan is working then if you are able to test for continuity in the t-stat and the heater if you refrigerator is cold still id start with the t-stat

Defrost line blocked and dumps water in front of frig once a day


Double door Maytag. Water frozen in the bottom and leaking onto the floor. Happened before and don't wish to pay the same repair person who "repaired" it 6 months ago to come out again. What can I do?

Fridge is not cooling


You probably need an adaptive defrost control which is located in the back right hand corner of your fresh food compartment. You have to dismantle the overhead controls to get to it. If you had to defrost your coils, and the heaters test good, then you probably need the above control.

After many repairs to my maytag mzd2766ges, my fridge side cools for a while and then it stops until a new repairs


Hi,

If either door is open, the airflow will be wrong. Do you see a lot of "snow" or frost building up at the bottom of the freezer rear wall?
Do you hear a fan running in the freezer compartment?
Where are your controls set?
Is the fan back by the compressor running?
Have you checked the air duct at the bottom behind the lower crisper drawers?


The main reason for this type of problem is that the (evaporator) coils below the fan would be iced up.
So, i need you to do this,
1.unscrew the back panels on the freezer side and note whether the evaporator coils were all iced up.
2. If it is iced up, then defrost the coils and then replace the defrost board in the refrigerator.

Regrigerator will be back to normal . Defrost board is located on top of refrigertor side underneath the temp control unit.
Easy repair once you remove the temp control cover. Unscrew the defrost board and plug new connection in.

Post your comments about how things turned up.
Thanx for using fixya,
Cheers.

Freezer not defrosting


What is the entire Model # and I can help with some troubleshooting as long as you have a volt-ohm meter and an amprobe would be helpful.

Sounds like your defrost system isn't working. There is a timer that turns off the compressor and fans then turns on the heater under the coils to defrost them. The defrost bi-metal thermostat could be "open" and not letting power to the heat element, the heat element itself could be bad or the defrost timer could be bad, that's about it for the defrost cycle system. I see this quite a bit and it's "usually" the adaptive defrost timer. Under the fridge kickpanel in the front is some paperwork and troubleshooting sheets. I think this model you push the light switch in 5 times in 10 seconds to force a defrost cycle for testing. With the unit running (compressor, evap fan, condensor fan all running) in a normal cooling cycle open the fresh food door and press the light switch in 5 times within 10 seconds. If all the compressor and fans turn off right away then the adaptive defrost board is OK and it's the heat element or bi-metal. I'll bet it's the adaptive defrost board though... here's a diagram of where it is and where to get one. It's REAL easy to get to and change out (then test as above). http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/A50-6.gif
