Hi

It's the defrost timer switch that needs replaced. Sometimes it's the fan motor. You can change out the fan motor yourself. Just call around to your local appliance parts store and get the right fan motor for your fridge. Motors are about $30.

The defrost timer switch would have caused your coils to get frosted up solid with ice and the fan still running as usual. So no, I don't think it's your defrost timer switch at this point.

It's the fan motor. Had you said the fan wasn't running I would have said "Fan Motor" and not defrost timer switch. I've had previous experience with both problems.

    Hi,



    Thanks for the reply. Now my wife informs me that the freezer isn't cooling properly either (the icemaker is working though). Do you still think it's the fan motor.

On my Maytag side by side, stainless steel fridge, Model #: MSD2651KES. The freezer works perfectly, but the fridge will not get cold, but if you open the freezer it will start sending cold air to the...


Its defrost problem.--------- When you open the freezer door, then ice starts getting defrosted, because outside temperature is warm and due to that inside ice gets bit melted.--------- -------------- 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 blocked by ice, because your refrigerator is not defrosting.But when you open the freezer door, the inside ice gets bit warm and it starts melting and this lets the fridge section get cool.------------------- In this case you will have to manually defrost the ice and inspect, if the problem solves.For manual defrost procedure, click the link below:-------- Click this below for more detail:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/refrigerator-is-not-cooling-properly.html ----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Water is leaking inside the refrigerator and the ice cube aren't freezing completely (cube is a hollow shell of ice)


Possibly it is because fridge is not cooling correctly(Ice cubes hollow).. Suggest proper defrost. if it is cooling partially, it shows cooling is trying to take place (Make sure before you switch on after defrost, check for proper water drainage.Water must flow to the compressor once defrosted.Take note if the fan runs correctly.
