Question about Maytag Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Maytag Model # MSD2957AEB side by side refrigerator and the coils in the freezer part each month seem to freeze up. This causes the cold vent leading to the refrigerator to stop the cold air flowing into the refrigerator. Each month I need to open the freezer side remove the back cover and defrost the coils. I assume it is the defroster not working correctly. Is the defroster the small cylindrical metal piece connected to the defrost element or is the defrost mechanism somewhere else?

My Admiral freezer is cold but not freezing. The fridge seems fine but food in the freezer is thawing.


See if the coil is clean, if not, vacuum and brush the coil clean.
That should make diagnosis much easier.

Maytag freezer don't freeze food or make ice


There could be several things causing the frig to be cold but not cold enough. First check thermostat control and air control. Both should be set in the middle setting for normal operation.Next check to see if evaporater fan is running in freezer. It should be running whenever compressor runs and circulates cold air inside frig as well as freezer. Next check if condensor fan motor is running. It blows air over condensor coils to remove heat. Last ,check condensor itself for dirty coils. If they are matted up with hair dust,etc. it will cause poor cooling. you can give thorough cleaning with vacuum cleaner. Hope this helps

Ice freezing up on bottom of freezer and water puddles in front


Two possibilities, ice maker leaking or the defrost drain is blocked with ice or another object. Unplug the freezer and remove the rear panel in back of freezer. At bottom of the evaporator coil is a tray that catches the defrost condensate and sends it to the pan beneath your refrigerator to be be heated by the compressor and fan heat produced from the condenser. The moisture is then returned to the air inside your home. If the drain is blocked with ice or anything between the freezer and the pan below, the condensate tray will overflow will end up inside your freezer or fresh food compartment. Questions?

Heres you problem your drain plug in freezer is likely frozen as well and water is running under fridge. You have to replace the thermostat defroster assembly Its behind the panel at rear of freezer and runs down and under condenser coils. Part cost $42 and plugs in its easy to replace It creates heat which keeps the coils free of ice and also keeps drain from freezing.

Freezer not freezing


Check the back wall of the freezer section for signs of frost build-up. If the freezer coil is frozen from a fault in the defrost system your refrigerator will be the first to show signs of not cooling.
