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.

Clean light keeps blinking and I cannot get dishwasher to start cleaning dishes. It seems to be hung up.


If it blinks 7 times, then pauses, then 7 times....over & over, then the computer control has failed to see an increase in water temperature during the last cycle. That means the heater could be out, the temperature sensor is out, the heater drive circuit is bad, there is not enough water or the water is not circulating properly. The newer models have different blink sequences that mean other things. On most models you can press hi temp wash>heated dry>hi temp wash>heated dry in quick succession to enter a service mode. All the lights will come on, then after the control clicks a few times, just press cancel & the control will be reset & you can run another cycle. If it does the same thing again at the end of the next cycle, it will need repairs.

My Fridgidaire upright Gallery freezer is freezing my food but the appliance seems to be constantly running and the temperature control on the outside is reading 29 Celsius when it obviously isn't


Hi Susan Abboud - Modern freezers have increased storage capacity and keep more even temperature that may require the compressors to run longer but use less energy. Was the unit disconnected previously for any reason? If so, freezer requires a minimum of 4 hours to cold down completely. Confirm that the temperature control is not set too cold and that the door is not being open frequently. A dirty, cracked, worn or poorly fitted door gasket can allow warm air to enter the unit causing it to have to run longer to remove the warm air. Leaks in the door seal will cause freezer to run longer in order to maintain desired temperature. Cleaned the gasket, if it is too damage then it will need to be replace. You can check and see if the door seal is bad by, placing a dollar between the gasket and cabinet. Check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing properly. If nothing is stopping the door then replace gasket. Keep in mind that there should also be at least 4-6 in of air space on all sides of the unit. If freezer is built in or has items stored on top that cover the unit, the can cause long run times, high temperature in the freezer and premature failure to the unit. Do not block the toe grille on the lower front of the unit. Sufficient air circulation is essential for the properly operation of your freezer, about 3 inches around the unit.

We have a 4 year old maytag a/c - M1200 16 seer unit. The compressor has stopped running several times durring the hottest time of day - the air handler keeps on running - which brings in warm humid...


It may be overheating, but chances are it has a high limit control switch which may be bad or it is overcharged with freon, in any case the limit and/or the freon charge needs to be verified by a qualified person who know the proper method's for charging and verify charge.
The hotter outside temps cause the high side pressure to rise, with a properly charged system it should operate properly even at 120 degree temps.

Bottom freezer not keeping ice cream frozen


Check out freezer temp - should be around zero degrees. Fact that ice maker is still working would indicate that the temps are at least about 10 degrees. If the door seals are tight and the self defrosting mechanism is working properly, the unit may be low on refrigerant. I had similar situation where stuff was frozen but my ice cream was mushy even though unit was running 24 hours a day.

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
