Question about Maytag MZD2766GES Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Maytag MZD2766GE Temperature control on refrigerator side does not appear to be operating. As recent as two weeks ago, items on the refrigerator side were frosting. Now the temperature will not cool below 60F. We pulled the refrigerator out and vacuumed out around the motor and underneath; pulled out all the food; and made daily adjustments to the temperature setting (owner's manual states not to move setting more than 1 setting point per 24-hours). The appliance is only 5-years old. I have an old Frigerdare in the basement that is 20 years old or more and still kicking! Any assistance by "The Experts" is greatly appreciated.

Apparently, you will need to call a service man.
You may be low on freon.
Sometimes leaks occur and are not serviceable except by a service man.
I recommend that you find a service man in your area. There may be one at this website listed who would be close.

    No,
    If the freezer side works well then you have a problem with either circulation of air or thermostat control. The following is a generic schematic of a refrigerator circuit. This will give you some idea of the controls.

Hello, Problem with Maytag plus Side by Side refrigerator model MZD2766GE.The Freezer part is working fine but the fridge part is not cold at all even after I adjusted the temperature to number 8. I do not...


You most likely have a defrost heater and/or defrost term switch. (switch is built into heater on your fridge).that needs replaced causing your coil to completely freeze up and blocking cool air flow to fridge side. Here is the part you need to order.

Hi, yes, your thermostat could be faulty, yes there should vent( damper), check controls on freezer side, controls amount of cold air going to ref. side, yes could be stuck by ice, yes both adjustment are necessary, check manual, some thermostat are very sensitive, you should adjust gradually, wait for about 40 minutes, before adjusting again. yes there's vent flap (damper) yes that could be your problem, normally they get stuck with ice, remove covers to locate it., you 're smart, you will see, damper, good luck.

The air that cools the refrigerator section comes from the freezer. The refrigerator temperature control controls the run cycle. You may have to replace or have the thermostat replaced. The temperature control has failed.

on some Maytags if the defrost thermostat in the freezer gets above its setting (around 50 degrees) the fans won't run. It shouldn't be like that very long...10 minutes tops then they'll come on all by themselves.
