The notorious Adaptive defrost did it again (lol) verify the condition of the heater putting a voltmeter on the "beeping" feature if it beeps its good.

Replace the Adaptive Defrost board and defrost thermostat and should work like a charm

Fridge warm, freezer has frost on back panel & is defrosting, fans work, just changed defrost thermostat, no air is moving from freezer side to fridge side, drain pan under fridge is dry


this fan needs to run when the compressor runs,check fan blade for being jammed by ice if you have this much ice on back wall as ice will stall motor,if no fan there will be no cool air to refrige compartment also the defrost drain tray will fill with water then freeze over which in turn floods the freezer floor and refrige compartments cause it cannot drain to the pan in the bottom

The freezer is cold, the fridge is warm, and the fan in the back of the freezer is running.


Hello,

Ya got 2 possible thing that will cause that

1) the damper in the upper left corner of the refrig.compartment is stuck closed so no cold air can enter from the freezer into the fresh food compartment,by placing your up to that damper their should be some (not a lot) of air flowing through it. If not it is stuck closed

2) its not defrosting in the freezer so the freezer coil where all cold air is made is totally one huge block of frost again causing air flow into the fresh food compartment to be cut off.Do you see frost build up on the back wall of the freezer?? if so this link describes what to check http://www.fixya.com/support/r10097882-wrong_when_freezer_frosted_refrig_warm

The freezer is freezing but the refrigerator is not getting cold why?


check the damper door vent located between the refrige and freezer for being iced up and stuck shut,if cold air from freezer can't get past thid door the refrige will warm up,if this isnt the problem,adjust the refrige temp control and watch and see if this makes this door open and close as you adjust the temp of the refrige compartment

Maytag bottom freezer Model MBF2254HEB not blowing cold air into freezer or fridge, blows warm air if blowing at all, starts and stops. Any suggestions? Possibly a reset button somewhere? Thanks - Kurt


The fresh food compartment is cooled by air being blown from the freezer compartment into the fresh food compartment. Something is restricting that air flow which causes your fresh food compartment to stay warm.

There is a panel, or door if you will, that separates the freezer and fresh food compartments. The freezer temp control determines how much cold air is allowed to escape into the fresh food compartment by opening or closing this panel.

If the panel is restricted from moving (stuck closed, for example), the freezer will get VERY cold while the fresh food compartment will be warm.

Try thoroughly defrosting the refrigerator. Possibly an accumulation of ice is preventing the panel from moving and/or is restricting air flow from the freezer to the fresh food compartment. It's a free fix and may solve your problem altogether.

If that doesn't help, or helps only temporarily, you may have a problem with panel itself or the linkage that connects it to the control mechanism. Unless you're skilled in appliance repair, checking and repairing these components will require the help of a service technician

Hope this was helpful. Good Luck.

Freezer cold /refrigator warm . we have a side by side unit a couple of years old the freezer seems to work fine but the refrigator is warm .It don,t seem to make any funny noises and the back is clean


When the compressor is running, if the fan by the compressor and the fan inside the freezer are both running, and there is no frost on the back wall of the freezer (if there was frost would indicate a defrost issue) then check the air dampener. It is located at the very top left back side of the fresh food section. If it is not opening up, no air will flow from the freezer compartment (where all the cooling takes place) into the refrigerator section.
