to get to the adc board and it is common for these to go out , you have to grab the plastic cover from the very back of the cover and pull towards the front of the unit , you should see the slots your sliding it off , somtimes it is a bear to slide off..
then after that there are phillips screws going into the roof of the unit , you just have to loosen these and slide the entire control section to the right to unlock from cabinet.
you should see the adc now and its a tight squeez to remove and replace , make sure there is no power to the unit.
Let me know if you have any questions.

My Maytag refrigerator is leaking water from under it. Model MFI2569VEM


Just how old your fridge is I don' t know. But is your defrost timer working on your freezer. It should defrost at least once a day. You may want to check out the drain on the bottom of the fridge also. It may be partly clogged up. Then newer models have the coils go over the pan to help evaperate the water.

Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

My frost free refrigerator doest not cool. the bi-metal thermostate has been replaces 3 times and the timer once. what to do? my e-mail address is royanil@hotmail.com


If your fan is running inside the fzr and the fan under the bottom ck and make sure the coils are clean under the fridge. If all of the above are working and the coil is clean make sure the black cardboard piece is covering the back side this directs air from the front across the coils and exits by the fan. Then the only thing left is loss of freon in the system. Make sure the compressor is kicking in when you turn it on you will hear it hummm and it will be warm to the touch. If the compressor is not kicking in then I would suspect the starter relay under the plastic cap on the compressor its the size of a nickle and is connected to one of the 3 prongs coming out of the compressor. unplug you fridge before handling the elect parts. good luck

My maytag side by side psb2151grw fridge is not cold on the fridge side, but the freezer is working fine. fridge is set at 8 and freezer is set at 6. Sometimes there is frost in the freezer, I just scrape...


Hello,

Sounds like you have a defrost problem since the freezer side is working okay . It probably is not blowing cold air into the refrigerator side , so to check the defrost circuit , unplug the refrigerator and inside the refrigerator section at the top about 2" in from each side in the back , there are "D" slots to put a finger in , and pull downward and forward , to remove the control panel cover . Once removed , there is a 1/4" screw on each side holding the adjustment indicator panel on , 1 phillips screw behind both light bulbs , and 1 screw holding the complete panel to the rear wall . After removing these 5 screws , at the top right corner , with about 6-8 wires going to it , is the adaptive defrost board . Sometimes you can see the electronic board and on newer refrigerator's , a white box will be seen. Inside this box , is the adaptive defrost control . Disconnect the plug going to the board and on the right side of the PLUG , the far right wire is yellow , then another color , then white . Using a small insulated wire with both ends stripped , insert one end into the yellow wire hole and the other into the white wire hole . This will bypass the adaptive board and send power directly through the defrost bimetal ( thermostat ) AND heater to check if they are good .Plug the refrigerator back in . Now , wait about 3-5 min and look for a red glow at the bottom of the inside freezer panel , which will be the defrost heater or listen for sizzling which will be the frost melting and dripping onto the heater .If NO red glow , watch for a spark while removing the jumper wire you installed , from the plug . If a spark IS seen , then the heater was on and the heater AND bimetal are good . If you see the red glow , hear the sizzling , or see the spark , then the adaptive defrost board should be replaced . If no glow , sizzling or spark , then unplug the refrigerator and reinstall the refrigerator control section .
Remove the food in the freezer section enough so that the 2 screws holding the lower freezer panel on and the freezer panel , can be removed . Remove the panel . If the heater (black element at the bottom of the coils ) wires are visible , trace then to the top of the coils and disconnect . Use an ohm meter to determine if the element is good . If the element IS good , at the top of the coils , is a 1" cylinder with 2 wires , clipped onto the coils . This is the defrost thermostat ( bimetal ) . Replace this part if the element shows good . If the element shows bad , replace the element . NOTE 1 : sometimes the element and the bimetal come wired together and the replacement part comes with a new heater and bimetal already wired together . This would be the advisable replacement part . However , each part can still be replaced individually . NOTE 2 : If looking at the bimetal and the top plastic " cap " looks cockeyed , replace the bimetal as moisture has gotten inside and disturbed its designed function .

The dividing strip between the freezer & fridge is hot.


Pull the refrig out and remove the rear cardboard panel . Check to see if something is caught in the fan blade stopping it from turning . Also , make sure the black square coils are clean . If the fan is not turning , and no obstruction , replace the fan motor . Use a small house fan to cool the compressor until the motor is replaced or the compressor could stop working .

There is a black tape that seems to be unraveling from my maytag atlantis. This tape is under the top rim of the basket. Any Ideas of what this is and if it needs to be replaced. My machine is 8 years old


Looks like this is the white plastic shield gasket:
You need to remove the front panel, loosen the top panel to be able to remove the plastic shield (it's just clipped on).
Once you have the shield removed, put gasket back in place so you are back in washing business.
Good Luck!

Maytag fridge isn't cooling


I recommend that you do preventive maintenance by cleaning the cob webs and dust accumulation from the coil located on the bottom of the refridgerator. The coils can be seen from the front of the fridge at floor level behind the removable plastic grille cover. The coils need to be also cleaned at the back of the fridge located near floor level, usually covered by a black colored, cardboard material cover that is removable. First start your cleaning process with a vacuum and hose attachment and clean as much as possible of the large debris. Second. use compressed air along with the vacuum to blow out any debris that could not be reached in the first step. Turn thermostat settings for fridge and freezer back to normal settings and allow time for temperatures to reset.

Maytag Atlantis Model 6400AEW Dryer bought 2003


On my 2006 Maytag Atlantis the top is held down by 4 screws 2 under the front and 2 on the back.
To remove the 2 on the front you need to remove the screws in the door and remove the door and front panel, than remove the 2 screws. The 2 screws on the back hold a white plastic fastener. After removing the screw, pry the bottom of the plastic fastener with a flat head screwdriver. Than with a very thin screwdriver or a thin pry bar wedge it under the top cover and just pop it off. Take care to not scratch your dryer while prying the plastic piece off.

Good Luck
