The control nub must have gotten broken or something has gotten behind it to make it stuck on a particular spot.
The freezer only freezing at the back and the fridge not cooling are caused by 3 things these are:
- If the gas in the compressor is low
- If the thermostat is spoilt
- If the compressor itself is spoilt. In all the cases you have to call an expert to take a look at it to determine which of these is wrong with the refrigerator. And in a rare case the condenser might be punctured but this is a rare situation.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

    Hello there sorry there is very little you can do to find out if these are the problems all you have to do is get the local repair man and tell him to check these things for you. have a lovely weekend.

    Hello there, Please do pardon my response as it might be a bit of point as i could only view your message once due to my PC...but i would advice that all the things you listed in your last correspondence should be checked. As regards the power supplied to the unit this means the current which is supplied from the particular outlet as the outlet might be a 13amp outlet instead of a 15amp outlet...but generally i would advice you get an expert to look at it as it could be risky to do it yourself.

Why is the refrigerator side is freezing food


First some fridge 101, the refrigerator/freezer models cool by directly refrigerating the freezer section and the refrigerator section is cooled when "some" of the cold air from the freezer is directed over to the refrigerator side (typically by a fan) to keep food fresh and not frozen a temperature controlling damper opens and closes to regulate the temperature of the fridge by introducing more or below freezing air into the cabinet. In older models where the freezer was on top the air simply "gravity" drained into the refrigerator cabinet, if the food was too cold you turned the fridge knob up and less air sank from the freezer to the fridge, simple but effective.

When you adjust the temperature level it controls the freezer temperature and this turns the compressor on and off to keep the food frozen. There is typically a knob or lever and some even have electric dampers that open and close to direct more or less air from the freezer and direct it to the refrigerator cabinet based on your temperature requirements.


Now that you know how it works there are a couple things to check. If the condenser coil is plugged with dust the internal system pressure will rise and in some cases make the fridge an over achiever and can chill too much so check/clean the condenser coil. Check the freezer temperature control and turn in up, also make sure the fridge temperature control setting is not set too cold.

Finally as the temperature changes around the refrigerator it will have an effect on the inside of the fridge too so expect to turn it up and down as the environment changes, down in the summer and up in the winter.

Hope the novel helps to resolve your issues.

I don't have a problem but I would like to know how to set my Dandy refridgerator.Its an upright small fridge.the knob only I see is in the fridge part.I don't know how to set the freeser part .There is...


Compact refrigerators that have a freezer compartment do not have seperate controls since they are cooled by the same evaporator and it is not designed to reach true freezer temperatures. It should get cold enough to freeze water for ice. If it were allowed to get much colder there would be problems preventing the refrigerated section from getting too cold. Therefore, you will have to find a setting that provides a good compromize. You should be able to keep frozen dinners and such cold enough to prevent them from thawing but I would not store meats too long in that freezer and ice cream will get soft. I hope this answers your question. - Subdriver

Defrosted freezer -


Melody, It appears that possibly either the kids accidentally turned the freezer off, or something being taken out/put into the freezer, got pushed into the control knob and caused it to turn off. (Just trying to help the kids avoid taking the full blame with that one!)

The good news is that your freezer is probably fine and just got turned off somehow. You can put it back to the middle setting and adjust it from there to get the coldness you want for whatever you're keeping in it, (meats, ice cream, veggies, etc.)

The indicator lights are to let you know that you have power going to the freezer and the other one lets you know that the freezer is working and the compressor is operating. I'd keep an eye on it for the next few days though, just to make sure that everything is working the way it should, just in case. You can take an old plastic milk jug (1 gallon size) and fill it with tap water and put it in the freezer on the middle shelf. If after 3-5 days, the temperature is staying cold enough, the jug of water should be fully frozen. You can also put in a load of bread and see if that freezes nicely after a day. If the above items are properly frozen after 1 and 3 days, then your freezer is working properly and the culprit was very likely, just the control knob getting turned off, somehow.

I'd also suggest that you might want to lock the freezer, if your's has one, to help minimize any chances of the settings getting changed, etc. Of course, if you've got ice cream and kid snacks stored in there, then your children will keep looking until they find the key anyway!

You should check any of the food items you had stored in the freezer and if they got defrosted completely, you'll likely have to toss it all out, the only exception is bread, (which is typically not much good once it's been frozen anyway), but can be used to "fill-up" the freezer to keep it operating efficiently when you don't have much stored in it. I usually just mark the bags of old thrift store bread with the date I put it in the freezer and toss it after a year.

Bread is an inexpensive way to load up the freezer so it runs better and helps save you some energy costs, even when you don't have much other higher priced food in it.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Freezer section is working but refridge not very cold.


check the vent that lets air from the freezer goes to the refrigerator. A control knob operates the amount of opening through the vent with a flap. makes the flap is not stuck, and responds to the knob, this is all mechanically link.

Does the single temperature control guage affect both,freezer and


check in the freezer section for a knob to control the freezer. Turn this knob back to center and return refrigerator setting to 5. What is happening is the freezer control is just a baffle that divides the air flow into the fresh food and freezer section. If the freezer knob is turn to 1 or cold it is sending all the cold air into the refrigerator, then when you turn down the actual cold control, the system isn't allowed to run long enough to allow the freezer to stay frozen.

Frig side not working on Maytag MZD2766GEW


freezer not defrosting. probably adaptive defrost board in fridge.
take panel off freezer (inside, back panel). if all frozen, can defrost with blow dryer. best to remove fridge control panel (inside, top of fidge). access adaptive defrost board, jump test to f1 (i think) next to test. this should initialize defrost mode. buy new board.

Kenmore frostless 19 temp. control knob


i've pulled up the service diagram for it and there's no thermostat or temperature control but there's a limit sensor inside the freezer I'm sure that such sensor is failing and when it defrosts, it stays on to long, and the whole 15 min defrost cycles goes on causing the freezer to warm up, delaying the freezing process. I'm almost sure that the limit is going.
