Question about Maytag MSD2756G Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Hi Side by side refrigerator not cooling down. Freezer seems to be not freezing. refrigerator compressor is running. Freezer damper wide open on a setting, refrigerator turned up to 10, running but not cooling. I believe it might be the heater or heaters because the front of the refrigerator used to be hot, it's not even warm. In the freezer compartment has frost all over the back. I don't know if it's the heaters or something else? I opened the back where the cooling coils are, and it was solid ice. I defrosted it, it ran fine for two days then stopped. Still running but not cooling down as it did before. Also the front where the two doors meet use to be hot, their not even warm. This problem happen before, tech came out and replaced a heater. Said it had somethiung to do with keeping the refigerator from frosting. This is for model number rst2200f.

Your defrost system has failed. The ice buildup prevents the fridge side from cooling properly.

I have a Kenmore Side by Side with two problems that I think are related. I have the freezer on the warmest setting but the drain line continues to freeze resulting in ice accumulation in the bottom


You have two different problems. There is another drain pan and drain located under the evaporator (cooling coil). This assembly is not visible until some panels are removed. That drain pan opening is probably plugged. The refrigerator is cooled by air forced from the freezer and controlled by dampers. The dampers are too wide open and thus allow too much cold air into the refrigerator section.

Refrigerator freezes


Sounds like might be the Temperature Control Thermostat or some sensor in the circuitry telling the compressor and cooling parts to keep running because it thinks it isn't cold enough. There is probably a circulation fan to blow the cold air through the damper and it may not shut off either, conveying too much cold thermal conduction through ducting and all frig parts, regardless of damper being closed or open. With the temperature set on low, do the compressor and fans ever shut off once cold temperatures are attained? Freezer should be 0 or lower, frig 35-40.

The meat and veg drawers freeze the meat and veggies no matter what setting the temp. is on.


Freezing meat,vegetables. Problem with damper.

For this problem, its indicating towards problem with damper assembly.----------

The working procedure of this unit is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes from the section, in that section the damper is located. ----------- The damper is operated by a motor.Its a complete damper assembly with motor included in it.--The damper has door.Which closes and open with the help of motor.In your case the damper door is remained open, its not closing.Due to this the cool air from freezer section is running in to fridge section non-stop.Due to this the vegetables and other food in the bottom drawer freezing.--------- In this problem the damper assembly needs to be replaced.---------------

You can get required parts from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site.

----------- This should help. Thanks.Helpmech.

Side by side Admiral freezer freezes but fridge


check the damper vent door between the refrige and freezer and make sure its opening up to let cold air from freezer into the refrige,sometimes they freeze up and cant open and close when called upon to do so,if so deice it with a hair dryer,the side being hot is good telling you the compressor is operating correctly

Jenn Air JCD2389GTB side-by-side refrigerator freezing & cooling


Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

The refrigrator does not get cold or freeze


Check at the back of your freezer panel for excess icing / frosting this will affet proper cooling - if so, then you have a defrost problem - have it serviced - if no excess frosting and defrosting normally, and freezer is normal, then you might have a damper problem, not opening wide enough . have them check your control boards, defrost timer, and damper (if any)
