Question about Maytag MFF2558KE

1 Answer

My freezer is working but the refrigerator is not all the lights are on but nobody is home. I already checked that little door thing in the back. It seems to be opening and closing just fine. But I can’t feel any air blowing into the refrigerator at all.

Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.
This sounds like the evaporator fan is not running at all. You can read the input power to the evaporator at the control board by probing the back of pin 8 of connector P2 (White wire) to the back of connector P1 pin 8 (Red wire) You should read line voltage.
You could also have a motorized damper problem where it is fully closed not allowing any airflow. The Air damper is controlled by a thermistor in the fresh food compartment.

See wiring diagram here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/frame_diagram.aspx?diagram_id=1323748&pkw_=basket&model_id=5169162&NewWindow=1

Your Thermistor can be found here:

Or Item 22 here:

Check and make sure the door switch is working correctly by watching the interior lights and then depressing the actuation plunger of the switch. Lights stying on in the fresh food compartment can cause the fresh food compartment to reach 60F with the compressor running.

Thanks for choosig Fix Ya. Kelly

When I close my side x side frig the freezer door pops open


This happens because the refrigerators of today are air tight, the fresh food door pushes the air into the cabinet as it closes and the air has no place to go but up the air vent into the freezer and "pops" open the freezer door. First thing is make sure the freezer door is capable of closing properly and is not rubbing or catching anywhere. I sometimes add a washer or 2 to the center hinge under the freezer door so it doesn't rub anything. Put a little Vaseline ( or food grade silicone lubricant ) on the hinge side of the seal. I then raise the front of the refrigerator so that the front of the refrigerator is a little higher than the back of the refrigerator. Never level a fridge with a level. Once you have the door closing properly and front slightly higher than the back...let the fresh food door close from 90 degrees on it's own and the freezer door may "pop" open a little but will close again on it's own...and stay closed once all is set up properly. We see this more often now and have no trouble with the door staying open again after setting up the refrigerator properly.

either the evaporator fan in the damper vent door isnt running to push cold air from the freezer up into the refrige compartment or the damper vent door between the freezer and refrige section is frozen shut and cannot open to allow cold air flow,you need to access the evaporartor coil in the freezer rear wall and check both the fan and door movement

Fridge does not cool on either gas or electric. There is power and gas available and the lights work in the fridge and the motorhome is level. This has just started It tried to keep things cold, however it...


either the thermometer is bad, the thermostat is bad, or your coils need dusting. Is your compressor running?

Also clean the condenser assembly. Also check the evaporator tray to see if it is wet. It should be.

You also can remove the rear cover inside the freezer. Now, after the compressor has been running for about 25 minutes...You may have to leave the doors open to accomplish this, wet your finger and touch the silver evaporator coils from top to bottom and front to back. Does your finger tip lightly stick to these coils all over? It should be.

Next thing is to check the air diffuser assembly.....This one should have you nearing the end of this diagnosis. Good Job so far. Basically you have a electronic damper control which they are calling an air diffuser. It is located between the walls of the freezer and the refrigerator at the top rear. It is a vent that has a little motor controlled by the main control board according to the readings the thermistor relays to the electronic control. What happens is the little plastic door hinge breaks and the motor turns but the door does not open or close as programmed anymore. You may have to gain access from both the freezer and refrigerator side to remove this to inspect it for a break. If I remember correctly, there are little tabs on the freezer side that must be depressed to remove it into the refrigerator side. If this is broken, open the door manually about 1/2 of the way and reinstall.

Things freezes up in the refrigerator section of the home frige


If fridge is freezing, check the door seal on the freezer part. Make sure it is completely sealed, The freezer can leak air, allowing motor to pump freon continuously to fridge.
If the seal looks ok, try turning down fridge temp. If you have done this already, than I would look into having thermostat or thermometer sensor replaced.

I have a side by side Viking refrigerator and after leaving the door open a little too long the lights went out in both the refrigerator and freezer. I figured that they would go back on automaticlly after...


Remove the center grill of the top grill and shut the power off and back on, the lights should reset

When the lights are working open the Ref door then close the freezer drawer, watching to see if the light in the freezer shuts off. It should shut off when the freezer is about 1" from closing. If it stays on until the door is fully closed then there is a problem with the light switch in the freezer.

Normally when you leave the doors open until the lights shut off, it should reset when both doors are closed

Freezer is not getting cool


Hello.
The first thing you need to do is take out the bottom drawer in the freezer and look into the slots in the back panel. Make sure that you can see silver coils, and not a bunch of frost. If there is, then you need a new defrost timer, defrost heater, or defrost terminator.

If this checks out ok, make sure that the coils underneath are clean and the fan is also turning (underneath the unit).
If all looks ok then make sure the fan in the freezer is running. (You may have to push the door switch if yours has one.) If the freezer fan isn’t blowing however, the freezer will be warm at the top and cool at the bottom, and you fresh food compartment will be warm.

Another thing to make sure is that the light it turning off when the door is closed. Again you would have to push on the door switch. I was amazed to learn when I first started this line of work, that even a little light bulb can make enough heat to cause a problem.
Let me know if everything looks ok and I will go over some other things, as the list of things that can go wrong with a refrigerator is fairly long.

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working


I had GE come out and look at it. I wasn't home to ask questions. The repair man basically said it was a 'loose connection' in the back which is where the motherboard is for all the electronics. It took him less than 5 minutes to fix and he was gone.

Thankfully - it cost me zilch. I told a small white lie and said we were still under warranty and they didn't ask to verify. Can I get an Amen!

GE Eterna refrigerator


Same model, same problem. Take the control board / faceplate assembly off of the front of the freezer door. There's a little screw where under the edge where the cup goes. Look at the ribbon cable (the cable that looks like a ribbon). If it looks like some lines are darker than the others (fried), something got in it and shorted it out. Your best bet is to replace the board.
