Okay,always start with the obvious.do a full defrost(leave the door open,unit switched off.)DO NOT use any hot water or sharp objects.
clean/syringe out any drain(s)with clorine bleach,(the smell will go in about 30 mins.)wipe the door seals with washing up liquid solution, then wipe over with bleach and rinse off.When the interior of the fridge is dry, close door and check door seals are flat to frame(airtight)then switch on and set to coldest for 24hours.you can fill up with food at any time but make sure all food,bar veg,is covered, to cut down on condensation.then set to +5C for fridge and -18C for freezer.(use a thermometer if you have one)

Maytag fridge model# MSD2561HES


Look inside the freezer for frost buildup on the rear wall. Let me know if there is frost building because that would indicate a defrost problem causing the warm up. Also check your model number because you are the only one on the internet with a model MSD2561HES for the USA Once you have the correct number and answer back about the frost buildup I will tell you each step to take solving this problem which I think is a defrost problem at this point, Thanks Sea Breeze I think your model has the adaptive defrost control board that may be at fault=> 4388932 Defrost Control Board

Whirlpool Refrigerator model ET18GKXHW0 0 I seem to have a problem with my defrost cycle. The fridge has warmed up over the last few days and there is frost buildup on the back of the freezer...


The defrost cycle is relative to the cooling coils and not the interior temprature. Frost showing up means air is leaking into the fridge... To resolve, you need to observe the cooling coils are free from buildup. it it the coils, usually under panels, that should be attracting the moisture, and the defrost cycle clears that buildup, and not any buildup in the main (user accessable) areas of the fridge....

Defrost timers are not too expensive, consider blindly changing that...but totally defrost the unit around the coils or you will never get past the issue.

My steering wheel rocks side to side, and sometimes will feel as if the road is bumpy when its not. what could it be? a simple alignment issue?


Could be many reason for this. Wheels out of balance, wheels bent, worn steering components, tread separation and on.
Sometimes up here we get mud or snow built up on the back side of the wheels which causes the wheel to go out of balance.
If there was no issue or incidence that you can think of that led to the shaking / vibrating I would get it to a shop....don't mess with your front suspension unless you're up for it technically. If there's alot of snow where you are or you were driving a muddy path have a look and make sure there is no buildup.
Take care.

10 year old Maytag USA style fridge freezer. Motor running all the time but freezer showing only 0 degrees C and fridge 15C


Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
  • if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.
