Question about Maytag Refrigerators

1 Answer

Maytag refrigerater Hi i have this mayteag refrigerater that seems to run a very long time. It seems to keep the temperature at the proper temps but i do not think it shuts off at the right time.Let say that it atarts cooling when the refrgerater temp reaches 38 and runs for abaut 45 minutes to sometimes 2 hour or more and then shuts off for about a half hour. Then it repeats the cycle all over again but this time it runs for about 45 minutes and then shuts off. What is the proper running time of a refrigerater. Sometimes it runs longer than 2 hours and i will turn the thermoustat until iy shuts off and then turn it up immidiately to the same number it was on and it will stay off for about 45 min to a hour my email is pjm47@comcast.net

If you have an ice maker in the freezer compartment try raising the bail arm and shutting it off. It is possible that an ice maker will increase your run time.

Should fan run constant on indesit ban12fn fridge freezer?


It should shut off when it reaches the correct temperature. If you have the temp set to low it could cause it to continue to run or if there is an issue with the fridge that could also cause this issue. Keep in mind after a defrost it will take some time for everything to get back to the correct temp so it may run constant for a long time.

Food (vegetables, fruits) on the refrigerater side freezing


Your model has a control damper inside the vent. The damper opens and closes with changes in temperature. It has a pig tail spiral thermostat on the side and if it goes bad the door sticks open or closed. Sometimes it is just frost but you will need to get to it. I will send photos and links in a moment, Thanks Sea Breeze

MY Maytag Wide by Side freezes in the produce drawers.


When a unit freezes in the lower drawers this is usually due to a thermistor which is not functioning properly. If you can provide your model number I can try to locate your schematic to your unit showing the thermistor that you would replace to alleviate this issue. I will await your reply as to the complete model number of your unit.
p.s if you had ice up the top of the unit as well then you would look at the damper door otherwise known as the diffuser door in some units or the control for the door as the problem area in your unit.
Thank you,
Rick

Refrigerater not staying cold and coil is frozen. condenser and fan are working freezer ice machine not working


The tube between the freezer and fridge is also likely to be frozen up. You need to unplug the unit for a day and let it thaw out. When you plug it back in, start with a low to med setting on the temp.

Maytag fridge not cold


IF THE COMPRESSOR IS COMING ON AND OFF IN A MATTER OF SECONDS, YOU MAY HAVE A BAD START DEVICE(RELAY) ON THE COMPRESSOR. IF THE COMPRESSOR RUNS FOR FIVE MINUTES OR MORE, CHECK THE FAN NEAR THE COMPRESSOR AND THE COILS
UNDER THE REFRIGERATOR. IF THINGS SEEM EXTREMELY
HOT, CLEAN THE COILS AND MAKE SURE THE FAN IS RUNNING. IF IT IS ALL O.K. YOU MAY HAVE A LEAK IN THE SEALED SYSTEM( TUBING WHERE THE FREON FLOWS).
THAT WOULD REQUIRE A CERTIFIED TECHNICIAN LICENSED TO HANDLE FREON TO MAKE REPAIRS.
