Question about Maytag MSD2756G Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

We have an 18-year old maytag side-by-side refrigerator. The freezer works but the refrigerator is no longer cooling. This occured yesterday. Over about the last three weeks there was some build up of ice behind the panel at the inside top of the refrig where there seems to be some sort of flapper valve that you adjust for how cool you want the freezer to be. At that point there looks to be some sort of plastic conduit that goes down to about the middle inside part of the refrig where there is an open port. There is no cold air coming out of that port. Also the ice build up has melted and the light at the top no longer works. Can you tell me what the problem may be and how much it might cost to get it fixed? At this age of the refrig, i'm not sure if it would be worth the money.

Hello, usually means the defrost timer isn't working often enough....there is a small hole that is open between the freezer side and fridge side that will clog with ice ....you need to defrost this hole....its at the bottom of the freezer just inside the door....try this first but you may need a new timer also.

Thanks

Refrigerator not cooling but freezer is


Something has stopped the cold air being ducted from freezer side to refrigerator side of things. Possibly duct blocked due to ice build up, evaporator not self defrosting etc. Turn unit off for a few days till it melts and then turn back on. If it was because a door has been left slightly open you will be ok. If for any other reason you will want to have it serviced in the next week or so.
