Hi,

I am going to make a couple of assumptions here, please let me know if any of these are inaccurate. You can hear the motor running in both the freezer and down below in back of the refrigerator.

You lost the cooling all at once vs. slowly getting worse over several days or more.

If this is the case, it could be the compressor not running (the fan motors can run without the compressor). If this is the case listen close to the frig on the outside, you will hear a buzz followed by a click every few minutes or so. If you hear this it is most likely the start relay for the compressor that has failed. If you do not hear this it could be more serious like a leak in the refrigerant (freon) system.

    Thanks for your answer,Both the motors are coming on there is a light buzzing noise when the compressor tryes to engage this just happened over night .this happened couple weeks ago same issue but it started working after unplugging it for a couple hours.

  • Philip May 31, 2010

    Thank you for the explanation. If you are hearing a buzzing that is an indication that the compressor is trying but cannot start.

    The problem is most likely the start relay. The relay is mounted directly on the compressor under a black plastic cover. If you unplug the power cord, removed the plastic cover the relay will pull off. If you shake the relay and it rattle it is bad.

    The relay assembly part number is 67005560.

It did not have the time to reset itself. Unplug it and leave it unplugged for 15 minutes and plug it back in to check hours later

    Bad compressor
    Low freon
    Kicks on & off will tell me the compressor is bad OR low on freon

My Maytag MF12568AES Refrigerator is not cooling. May be I need to reset the computer.


This happens to my Maytag like clockwork every summer. The freezer works fine but the refrigerator stops cooling. The first time this happened, it was the fault of the small plastic DC fan that sends cooling from the freezer compartment to the refrigerator section. A technician replaced the DC plastic with an AC metal fan he guaranteed would last the life of the refrigerator. He blamed govt energy standards as the reason Maytag uses the cheap DC plastic fan in the first place. Problem solved. One year later, same issue with no cooling in the refrigerator, freezer fine. Again today, nearly one year to the day! SOLUTION? Trip the circuit breaker or unplug the refrigerator for a minimum of 5 minutes. A reboot now fixes the problem every time. Who would have thought you'd ever have to REBOOT your refrigerator?

Water dispenser in my Maytag french door refer has suddenly stopped working. We use it every day and the filter seems to be fine. It almost sounds like it is frozen. Please Help!!!


We have a hd2560 (bot 10/04), french door with inside water dispenser and it had stopped working a year ago, but started working a few months later. I couldn't figure out what happened, but suspected the water line was frozen. I later found out that the water reservoir is located behind the fruit and vegetable bins, so look there to see if the water is frozen.

Two weeks ago, our frig/compressor stopped cooling after making humming/clicking sounds for weeks. Fortunately, Maytag has a 5 yr parts & labor warranty on the compressor, so we were covered. Evidently, there are quite a few faulty compressors out there.

I believe that the compressor had been over-cooling in the past and caused the water lines/tank to freeze. This would also cause frozen produce/fruit. I would immediately contact Maytag/Whirlpool if you suspect a faulty compressor as well.
