Question about Maytag Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have live in my current residence for 2 years. It came with appliances such as my maytag plus side by side refrigerator. It worked perfectly up until about the last 2 months. The freezer side is efficient, where as the refrigerator temp has gradually been declining and is at a constant 40*. My landlord said that this happens often and to let the freezer side defrost due to some thing she could not describe. I did just that i unplugged the machine and let it sit for 8-12 hrs i cant recall the exact time. This seemed to fix the problem for about 1 month, so i attempted to thaw it again. This resulted in a 5 day period of 30* temps and i am reluctant to try it again. I'm wondering if this a common problem that can fixed easily as i have cleaned all the coils and done what i can with no promising results.

    I figured there was an issue of some kind and this seems to be an gradual occurrence after a defrost. Thank you for your support.

It is a defrost problem since the ice that freezes on the freezer coils
is not being melted by the defrost system.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician butyou could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info Also check evaporator fan in freezer was this helpful ?

Refrigerator stopped cooling 2 days ago. Freezer works fine. What is broken? Appliance is four years old. Replaced compressor almost exactly 1 year ago.


Check the fan in the freezer and be sure it's working, isn't blocked by product or isn't clogged with ice. If this fan isn't working the refrigerator section won't cool properly.

My Maytag Plus refrigerator was stored for 3 years in a climate controlled storage. I moved it a couple of weeks ago and ran it for a week or so without hooking up the water line, and it was working great....


If that is the model number above your post let me know or if different. Most times the dual water control valve sticks or or may need to replace. Place water in the trays and if it freezes cycles and dumps the ice maker is OK but the ice maker during is last few seconds of cycle tells the valve to open. Try that first and I will find you a service manual and part numbers. Sea Breeze

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 side of my side by side to warm


Check the back wall of the freezer section for signs of frost buildup. Your problem could be caused by a frozen evaporator coil in the freezer section. After making your check come back and give the model number of your Maytag .
