Question about Maytag MSD2656G Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Freezer side works o.k., but refrigerator side is not cool.

The refrigerator side is about 65 F, independent of the "refrigerator temp setting." Is this problem due to the "adaptive defrost" or what. I saw some ice in the air slots at the top/back of the freezer. I knocked this off, but it made no difference. Your suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

    Yes! The "adaptive defrost control" (ADC) was bad. This was replaced and everything now works fine. It appears that the ADC is prone to failure.

IF THE FRESH FOOD SIDE IS RUNNIG HIGH TEMP AND THE FREEZER SIDE IS O.K YOU PROBABLY DO HAVE A BAD ADC. BUT THIS CAN ALSO BE A BAD DAMPER ASSEMBLY. IF YOU CAN NOT DETERMINE WHICH IT IS ORDER THEM BOTH THE DAMPER COMES AS A ENTIRE HOUSING AND RANGES FROM 22.00 WHOLESALE TO 60 BUCKS RETAIL. IN MOST CASES IT THE ADC I CHANGE ABOUT 5 TO 9 A MONTH HERE IN B'HAM AL

I have a GE side by side Fridg.that is approx 7-8yrs old.The freezer side is working fine but the fridg. side is not cooling. staying at about 50 degrees just barely cool.. This seemed to happened...


Setting the cooling setting up all the way will not help at all.Make sure your freezer and refrigerator controls are about the same setting. Temp. settings for refrigerator should be between 38-42.degree at medium.. Freezer about 0 to -10.If it is a simple fix this will help.

Model FRS26ZRF, the freezer side is cooling down


It could be the defrost system? When you allowed to thaw, did you check the evaporator? It could be frozen? It will take longer to thaw. Is the evaporator fan working? It and the compressor will not, when the box is in defrost. Is your defrost working? Are your door gaskets sealing properly? Are your doors aligned properly? Some things to check. Good luck.

The refrigerator side of my kenmore refrigerator does not cool


Make sure the evaporator fan is operating. Since the fresh food side is cooled by the air flow from the freezer side. Check for blockage of the air duct from the freezer to the fresh food side. Set the temp control half way. Over adjusting this setting can cause problems with cooling. If I can help you any farther, let me know.

Whirlpool side by side refrigerator not cooling


Hello danielscynt,
Welcome to Fixya,

You said, freezer is fine the refrigerator is 50-65 does not get colder than 50.the evaporator fan is working but it seems to be blowing very little air
Have a 1998 Hotpoint Model # CTX16CAZDRAD Serial # ZS738209. The refrigerator is not cooling. Temp is at 66 degrees with setting at 5. The Freezer is working, but it seems to be running all the time. Please help!

There are a few things that come to mind!

The Freezer is working, but it seems to be running all the time, you said!.
This could be a bad thermostat!

But lets try some simple maintenance first!
Is your freezer packed too the hilt with packages???????
Where the articles cover the air vents in the freezer?

The freezer and the fridge share the cold air and the passages must not be blocking the cold air from moving out of the freezer!.Search your freezer !

Also your fridge is 10 years old!
Did you ever remove the plastic grille at the bottom of the fridge along the front, and GENTLY run a refrigerator brush along the black metal tubes running back and forth under the fridge?
( You can buy this brush at any hardware store $10.)
They must not be covered in ten years of lint and dust. These narrow tubes carry the freon and run in this parallel fashion back and forth, so they are cooled by the air being **** through them.
if not and they overheat your fridge will get warm.

If the tubes are found to be covered or submerged in dust sometimes I have found them one to two inches thick in dust, and sometimes they are even not visible until you clean the dust out.
Then it will take 10 to 24 hours for the system to get back to full working temperature again. As long as the heat did not cause permanent damage!

if these are not the answer, then you may need a hands on diagnoses!
BUT, most of the time these two things are what I find!

Let me know how it goes!!!!!!!!

Thank You for asking my advice!
Huuum
