My Amana 26 cu ft side by side quit cooling entirely in the freezer and the refrigerator. Is it worth it to get a repairman or should we just get a new frig. This one is 6 years old


I suggest get help with repairman.6 year old is not very old.Refrigerators have life more then 8 to 10 years.The problem can be temperature not set properly or any of fridge or freezer door not closed properly and cool air is getting leaked out. These are basic possibilities which first need to be checked. But if these possibilities are checked ok and still the problem is same, then its weak compressor issue.

8 yr old maytag msd2758drw side by side isn't freezing


If the clicking noise is comming from the rear of the frig it could be your compressor trying to start. The motor would be the fan in the freezer running. That part would be normal.
If it is the compressor it could be replaced but if it were me I would buy a new frig.

Frig. is 5 years old - Not cooling - Buzzing clicking sound


Sounds like the compressor or start relay have went out.
For any recall info you would need to give the full model and serial to the Maytag.

We left the frig door ajar for 6 hrs, now the frig isn't working but the freezer is... where is the reset button? Thanks!!


Hi, No reset button. Check and make sure the evaporator fan motor inside the freezer is running. While checking that, look and see if there is any frost build up on the rear panelin the freezer. Please let me know if any of these are the case so I can asist you further.
Thanks

Frig. and Freezer not cooling. Clicking sounds heard every 2 mins


sure sounds as if it is def a compressor overheating, now that the compressoe will be cooled it should work , but your right damage may be already done, the good news if any is that you should be covered under 5yr manufactures warr for compressor
