Question about Maytag MSD2756G Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

My wife cleaned our Maytag refrigerator (MZD2666KEW) the other day. She started it up with the same temperature setting she had, but everything in the refigerator compartment froze. Now its on the lowest thermostat settings and seems to be working ok, but I'm concerned because we have no downside adjustment available. What could be the problem?

    At the suggestion of a computer engineer friend of mine, I unpluged the refrigerator of a few minutes and then pluged it in again. It is now working as it did before. Could the solution have been that simple.

There is a rod like thermometer. You might check it and make sure that it is clear. Take a damp rag and clean it again. It could have cleaning solution.

Hi,
Cold air flows from freezer to the refrigerator section.

*)First Check the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost.

Temperature control board can be defective:
The Freezer(evaporator) fan runs and circulates the freezer air to the refrigerator section.This fan is controlled by the Temperature control board.This fan should should stop after some time.It should not fully run.It will run when the defrost timer is active.
and check the damper is opening and closing through here only the air flows from freezer to refrigerator

*)Defrost timer is embedded on the temperature control board.So test the board and check it is defective.The defrost timer activates the thermostat, that is to warm the refrigerator.If it is defective it will not send the pulse.

*)Heater and defrost thermostat is located behind the back wall of the freezer section.This only controls the Heat.After the Defrost timer stops it makes the system warm.Defrost thermostat could be defective so test it.

*)Take the back cover off in the freezer and see if the ice is packed because of this the defroster is not getting the signal to defrost,Temperature control board defective.



post a comment for further assistance.

Our Maytag refrigerator gradually began cooling and freezing less effectively, so we completely defrosted it, wiped it dry and restarted it. The refrigerator worked great for about 10 days and now has


If the fridge can't keep the temperature, and you hear the motor running all the time, I'm afraid it lost its cooling fluid. (used to be Freon, but not anymore the use other fluids now).
When it is running most of the time, and you can't find a leakage, call a tech. Or if the fridge is old, start saving for a new one?

Electrolux ESM6600SA Side by Side Refrigerator getting too cold after a clean


Hello John Wood - From what you have describes it sounds like the damper door might be open causing the temperature to be too cold. Use a mirror to look at damper door at the rear of compartment and use a hair dryer on damper door to deice for 5 to 10 minutes. Allow 24 hours and if the temperature is still too cold, then I would have a professional look at the damper door for replacement.

My Maytag side by side refrigerator [mod. #MSD2656KES, Serial #50518503JL] is freezing everything on the frig side on the two top shelves. Coils have been cleaned. Temp set:Freez=3, Frig=2. One week ago...


I have this same refrigerator, also purchased in 2006. Same exact problem. Fridge freezes, starting actually in the water line, you will notice water on door does not work, then top two shelves start to freeze. Lasts for a few days, then prob does not happen again for 6 months almost to the day. I've had this problem for almost 3 years!!! My service tech said to buy another, glitch in this system he can't figure out. Replaced damper x2, control board, and thermostat x2. Not sure what else to do. I hate the thought of more food lost to spoilage!

Maytg Top Mount Freezer drip tube leaks into bottom of Refrigerat


Just had this problem a few weeks ago. tube from freezer was frozen solid 1-2 feet down from the freezer. Empty EVERYTHING out of the the Fridge and the freezer into coolers or other suitable 2-4hr container(s). Unplug the unit and use a hair blow dryer on the coolest warm setting. If it's too hot it may melt plastic or styrofoam parts. As long as long as you have everything out and it's going to be at room temperature for a while, why not clean it totally out with fantastic or your favorite cleaner. Once your sure the clog is gone from the tube, put it all back together, plug it in and stop being a slob and keep it clean!!!! hehehehehehe

Freezer will not get cold


Hi..

You need to check this following:

  • Check the temperature setting
  • Make certain there is a three inch space outside of the refrigerator between the walls and the back and sides and at least a one inch gap above, to allow for air flow
  • Clean the condensor coils
  • Unplug the refrigerator, wait two hours and plug it in. If you hear it running, a problem is causing the compressor to overheat
  • Test the temperature control
  • Test the evaporator fan
  • Test the defrost timer
  • Test the compressor relay
  • Test the overload protector
  • Test the compressor motor

Good luck !!!
