Question about Maytag Refrigerators

Side by side Maytag Model #RSW2400E will not go into the "defrost mode". I took a hairdryer and thawed the coils from the inside of the freezer and now it runs constantly.

The freezer of out Kenmore side by side 53562202 is working fine however our refridgerator is not cooling. my husband is handy and can fix it himself we need a part number or idea of what might be wrong.


Hi welcome to fix-ya. Sounds like a defrost problem. Do you have frost on back panel? If so Take a hairdryer and thaw the coil. If this fix works for you. You have a defrost problem. The hairdryer will buy 7-10 days You may need a new clock or board Sears will be the place to go I hope this helps.

Coils in my 2454 packed solid with ice. Thawed it out....worked fine for a couple of weeks. It quit staying cold so I dug behind the freezer to discover the coils again encased in ice. Thawed it...


your defrost heater around the coils is open and can no longer heat,or the adaptive defrost timer or defrost thermistor are defective located in the refrige control panel behind the temp controls and the thermistor is located on the defrost heater assy

Our freezer and fridge or not keeping cold enough


This can be caused by the drain hole below freezer coil being blocked by ice. You MUST remove all ice in drain under freezer coil. Use turkey baster to squirt hot water into hole and use hairdryer to defrost. Possible defrost thermostat is defective. Unit never goes into defrost, ice forms on coil and in floor or back of freezer. After defrosting may work OK for a week or two but gradually gets warmer because ice is blocking ports where cool air gets to refrig. May also have water in refrig box. Can also be caused by defective defrost timer.

MAYTAG PLUS, MOD MZD2766GE STOPPED COOLING ON THE RIGHT SIDE,


After they replaced the part did they defrost the unit. there is probably ice build up on the coil behind the service panel in the freezer compartment. If the defrost control was the part replaced you can probably push the refrigerator side light switch in and out 5-6 times and force a defrost. if the unit goes into defrost then all the components are fine and you just need to manually defrost the coil either by off loading all food and leaving the unit off for 4-6 hours with doors open. of offloading freezer side remove rear access cover in freezer exosing evaporator coils and use a hairdryer to defrost the ice accumulation. good luck Peyton

We have a side by side maytag plus refridgerator freezer that has frost on and behind the back panel of the inside of the freezer. Everyting started to thaw. This happened to us before and we were told...


Unplugging and letting it completely thaw out is not the answer to your problem in the long run. You have a problem in the defrost system. These problems are normally cause by the following; The defrost timing device has failed. If it is a timer it can normally be located near the temperature control area. It will have a hole in the plastic cover through which you can access the clutch head screw. Turn the screw Clockwise very SLOWLY until you hear one audible click. that will put the system into the defrost mode. Wait about 25 minutes and the defrost of the freezer coil should happen. If the system does not restart and defrost happens, turn the timer again one audible click and the system will restart cooling. (Replace the timer). If the system restarts after the time period and defrost does not take place your problem is in the heater or defrost thermostat. Back wall must be removed inside the freezer to access these components.

Bottom of freezer has water dripping into it


A bad freezer door seal causes condensation that freezes at the bottom of the unit. I realize you said the drip pan was full of ice, but if the drain is clogged, that will happen. If that unit has the pan at the very bottom, condensation can also contribute to this.
