Question about Maytag Refrigerators

2 Answers

I have the Maytag, Model MF12269VEW1 refridgerator, which I purchased from Lowe's in 2009. A small leak has developed on the left hand side front where I find about two or three ounces of water, usually every morning. I have checked all connection fittings in the rear and the connections on the top of the left hand door, as the manual says to do. All are tight with no evidence of dampness anywhere near any of the fittings. It is really bothersome to know you have puchased a nice refridgerator and have to mop the floor every morning. Will you haelp me out? My phone : 940-692-5915. Email is cpanas1@sw.rr.com. Thank You. Mr Carl Panas 4638 Jennings Ave Wichita Falls, Tx 76310

    Where do I go to find pictures or diagrams to locate various components such as hose connections, gaskets, drain pan, defrost drain pan, etc. as to how to get to them for this model refridgerator, on the internet, if possible.

This fridge should still be under warranty from Maytag, I would call them before pursuing any other options, or talk with Lowe's they can usually work some kind of warranty swap out. I would start with Maytag however, please contact them at:

(800) 344-1274

Make sure you have your model number and serial number handy so that they can help you right away.

If they will not help you please let me know and we can continue further, but it should be a warranty repair situation.

Hello,

Before jumping to conclusions about why your refrigerator is leaking, do a thorough inspection. Many times, it will be easy to see where the water is coming from and from that point deduce the problem. For instance, water leaking from the back is usually due to an ice maker issue, water from the side of the refrigerator is usually due to a faulty door or gasket, a leaking drain pan,a clogged defrost drain pan.

You need to clean the drain tube and check the ice maker and refrigerator level for water inside the refrigerator.

Take care.

MAYTAG REFRIDGERATOR NOT COOLING


Check to see if the evaporator fan is blowing. Sometimes removing the back panel to expose the fan and hand turning it can make it come back on. If this doesn't work then the fan is bad. Also make sure that there is good circulation to the fridge side. Food can sometimes block air flow.

Not getting cold, staying around 48 - 50 F


Check the condenser coils. These are located at the rear, behind the panel. There should be frost all over the coils.
If not, and the frost is just on the first section then this indicates a slow refridgerant leak. I purchased mine in 2002 and it came with a 10 years parts and labour warranty on all parts of the refridgerant system. So hope you hung onto all your documents.

Need to replace my Maytag the door is reverseable. Who makes those now?


The doors are reversabe they go from left hand open to right hand open. Just reverse the hinges, put the door fillers ( triangle shape go toward the front. Remove the plug put it in the other sidel. Now take the metal door strke and put it on the other side, Then take the filler from on side and put it on the other side. Takes 10 to 15 minutes to make the change.

No need to purchase another door!

Maytag, side by side refrigerator stopped working


Check the thermostat which is located in the top left hand coner of the refrigerator. Also check the relay on the compressor to make sure it is not staying open all the time. Also there has been a huge recall on Maytag side by side refridgerators made between 2001 and 2005. I would also try calling Maytag and get the problem fixed by them by recall

Danby dishwasher in warranty developed a crack in the door shell.


Fredrick:
1st thing you need to do is contact a service company in your area that does the warranty on Dandy, set up a call for them to come out and check it.
being in the 1st year warranty there should be no charge to you and after they come out and check it they will most likely have to order the inter-door liner which is no problem in operation of your dishwasher and after it arrives they will come out and install the part,
you might check to see if there is a sears service in your area and if they work on your make.
be sure to give them all the info up front at far as date purchased, model and serial numbers and who you purchased it from.
