Hello,

It sounds like you are going to have to pay for the service call, since all of the options require a trained technician.

My best guess is a burned out compressor motor. This happened to me a while back. If the coils get dirty, they do not cool effectively, and that makes the compressor work harder. The coils are usually located at the bottom in the front, behind the grill below the doors. You can and should clean them once a year at least.

The compressor and thermostat can also cause the problem.

Call a repairman and let them diagnose the actual problem and fix it. The cost of repairs should be between $70 an $120

I hope this helps.

Good luck.

Maytag Plus side by side refrigerator stops cooling. I unplugged it for 24 hours. When I plugg it back in, it works fine for about 2-3 months. Then it stops again and works fine after being unplugged for...


Take food out of the freezer, take out the racks, take off the back panel on the bottom/back ( probably 4-6 screws).. You will see a fan. If that fan has ice around it, then take it all off, chip it, hair dryer, what ever you want. Unplugging it for 24 hours is not enough for all of the ice to melt so it is probably taking a couple months to build back up. Generally this happens in a high humidity time of the year. It will probably happen again, do not freet. Just clean it again. I know one customer that had it happen two years in a row and that was about four years ago. He has had the unit (Maytag Plus side by side refrigerator) about 10 years and is just fine with it. Little inconvience, but sometimes that is the breaks in life. Good luck.... f067b6b.gif

Refrigerator and freezer quit working.


That sounds like it could be the problem. The common causes are a bad defrost heater, defrost timer or a defrost thermostat.

Freezer works, fridge doesn't cool


Probably excessive ice in the condensor. Likely defrost thermostat or defrost heater problem.

What happens is excessive ice keeps airflow from the refrigerator part of the unit.

Refrigerator will not get cold, but freezer works


Make sure your fan is working ,its located behind the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked (usually with ice).With out a fan you have no circulation but your freezer may look likes its working,it may last 3 days.Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open untill all traces of ice are gone this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.

There is a vent that is connected from the freezer down to the fridge right where the fan is,make sure nothing is blocking it.
