Maytag fridge not cold

Hi, my fridge is not cold anymore. The fridge is still running, but it seems like the motor starts up and shuts down too quick to bring the temperature down. Right now the bottom compartment's not cold at all, and the top freezer compartment is about the same temperature as what the bottom compartment used to be. Was wondering what might be the problem and if it would be cheaper to get a new fridge or repair this one.

IF THE COMPRESSOR IS COMING ON AND OFF IN A MATTER OF SECONDS, YOU MAY HAVE A BAD START DEVICE(RELAY) ON THE COMPRESSOR. IF THE COMPRESSOR RUNS FOR FIVE MINUTES OR MORE, CHECK THE FAN NEAR THE COMPRESSOR AND THE COILS
UNDER THE REFRIGERATOR. IF THINGS SEEM EXTREMELY
HOT, CLEAN THE COILS AND MAKE SURE THE FAN IS RUNNING. IF IT IS ALL O.K. YOU MAY HAVE A LEAK IN THE SEALED SYSTEM( TUBING WHERE THE FREON FLOWS).
THAT WOULD REQUIRE A CERTIFIED TECHNICIAN LICENSED TO HANDLE FREON TO MAKE REPAIRS.

Hello, our fridge has stopped working, the fan and motor are still running but the unit wont get cold anymore.I think it might be a freon problem but I cant be sure. The motor and fan are running constant


Your right! A freon leakage system problem cause no cold anymore.
But a temp control must be check.
A defective temp control will also cause no cold of the freezer.
The same also if compressor motor is defective even though it is running.
Call a service technician to verify the trouble of your fridge.
I hope I give you idea regarding your fridge problem.

Hi I have a Maytag fridge freezer GC2227CDFB The fridge compartment has stopped working, the lights still come on when door open, the motor seems to be working, when temp. setting is turned down to 0 the...


Your problems are exactally the same as mine. I have taken the freezer back panels off and fornd the elements blocked with ice, the upper and lower channels to the fridge are blocked with ice and obviously therefore no0 cold air is going the fridge, I have de-frosted the freezer and put back together and everything works great for 2 weeks when the same thing accurs. My settings for both fridge and freezer are on the lowest possible, but the wife does fill the freezer with too much food! I guess I need an expert in!!

The fridge does not seem to be cold.


if just the refrige isnt cold,check the damper door located between the freezer and refrige compartments and see if its open to let in cold air from freezer,if not sometimes they freeze shut and cant operate with temperature setting changes/if nothings cold,then replace the ptc overload relay located on the compressor body,it just unplugs off the compressor

Both fridge and freezer aren't getting cold enough in my Maytag Fridge


if they are both cold, but not cold enough, one of two likely scenarios, one minor, one major. the major one, you haev a sealed system leak of refrigerant, several hundred dollars to repair.

the minor, your condenser fan motor is not running, its job is to cool the compressor, if its not cooling the compressor, when the compressor gets too hot, it will shut itself down, while the fridge continues to run. when this happens, the unit seems fine first thing in the morning, but by evening it seems less fine...while everyone sleeping, doors have been closed, allowing unit to "catch up". replace fan motor.

Maytag MSD2556AEW; Fridge and freezer not cold


Hi,
Without actually putting gauges on the system to see what is really going on, I would say that your compressor has failed. There is a good chance that it is something inside that has broken. Turning it off and back on will give it another life sometimes but like youexperienced it is usually short lived.
I assume that you have checked that the condenser fan is running underneath the fridge. Also that the condenser coils are not completely plugged with dirt. These things can also make your firdge od wierd things...
This should give you a couple of things to checkout, but I fear that the compressor is bad and you will need to replace it or get a new refrigerator. If you choose to replace the compressor get a full price quote before the work is done, as it may not be worth doing if you have an older refrigerator.

I hope that this helps you to solve your problem.

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Freezer is cooling but the refrigerator is not cold


This setup uses a fan to push air around to distribute the cold air. It sounds as if your fan isn't running anymore.
It may not be a lot of fun to access it for replacement or lubrication which might be the problem. This type of fan motor normally uses a phosphor-bronze bearing with graphite embedded and while they shouldn't ever need oil, this type of bearing has tendency to get sticky over time eventually jamming the motor shaft.
Modern motors are 'impedence protected' so they don't 'burn up' anymore but do get hot.
What you might try is to check Sears parts section to see if your model is listed for replacement parts (they sell parts for about every US brand) and they may have an illustration of your fridge that shows you how you can access the fan.
