Hi. Maytag Refrigerator freezer is not working at all, hence the fridge itself is not cooling whatsoever. Is it that it needs freon refill? or is it time for a new fridge, after 6 years?

You might want to try cleaning the coils on the back of the fridge. You can either use a brush or a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment. A second possibility is that the defrost cycle is staying on. Try replacing the timer in the freezer section. If that doesn't help then the condenser is probably bad. In which case it's time for a new fridge.

My Maytag Refrigerator is not Cooling enough. My Freezer works fine and we have unplugged and let everything defrost and plugged back in but still not working properly. Model # is MFD2561HES


Its possible the evaporator fan is bad. Air is drawn from freezer to cool the refrigerator side and ultimately controlled by the fridge side thermostat. Or... Low freon.

Whirlpool refrigerator model # GS5SHAXSLOO: Freezer works fine. Cool air not getting to the refrigerator area. Evaporator fan is working properly.


Hello there,

When your refrigerator tends to be running perfectly fine, but your fridge or freezer compartments are not cooling, then it means there is a problem somewhere inside the unit.

The problem could be caused by either a blocked condenser coil, or no more freon gas in the refrigerator. You need to clean out the condenser coils then refill the freon gas and your refrigerator will be in good condition once again.

Ensure your thermostat is functioning properly also.

Hope this helped you solved the problem.

Maytag admiral fridge freezer not cooling


Hello there,
If the refrigerators fridge and freezer is not cooling. You need to check if the temperature is set to the highest. Then you check if the thermostat is still working.
Then you check if the compressor and fan are running. If they are, then it simply means all you need is to refill the gas tank with some freon or refrigerant as you may know it by.

Fridge wasn't cooling but freezer was working, now both aren't


Hi,Your husband did good job, after cleaning and vacuuming, did freezer (bottom) have excessive ice?, if there's excessive ice in bottom, after cleaning, you have a defrost problem, but if there're no ice in freezer after cleaning, you got freon (gas leak) , there's a condensate loop, that passes through ref. body, from compressor that naturally develop, freon leak after few years, by rusting, normally it can be by- pass. vacuum and refill with freon, if there's no freezing, but compressor running, you'll need a mechanic, you got a freon leak. good luck.
