after removing all of the freezer racks and shelf pull the 4 1/4 inch screws out at the bottom back panel of the freezer. pull the 2 panels off and slide them out strait down to the floor of the freezer. if your freezer coils are full of snow and ice then the fan cant pull any cold air up into the refrigerator.your problem is probably th defrost adaptive timer. if the heater ohms out at around 20 to 30 ohms it is ok. next ohm the 2 white wires at the plug this is checking the thermostat it shoud ohm out at aproximately 240 k ohms if those 2 things check out the problem is the adaptive defrost timer it is in the ceiling behind the temperature controls on yhe right side.

SOURCE: refrigerator won't get cold

You likely have a defrost cycle failure. The freezer's cooling coils need to be frosty and cold so the air that the fan pulls over them can cool the fridge section. If the defrost cycle fails, the coils freeze up to a block of ice and air flow suffers (fridge is about 55 degrees F). The freezer stays cold only because there's a block of ice in there now... sometimes that cold "sinks" to the bottom and only the food at the bottom stays frozen (and can even freeze food at the bottom of the fridge compartment while the rest is warm). To be sure, you'll need to take the rear interior panel off the freezer back wall and check the coils to see if they are frozen solid. If they are then there's a defrost cycle failure. If they are showing a nice white frosty pattern evenly all over the coils then that's normal and maybe the evap fan (right above the coils) is not blowing air up properly or is not working at all. That fan should run if the compressor is running, etc. the only time it doesn't run is during an actual defrost cycle. Once you find out what condition the coils are in it should be simple to direct you further on the problem.

SOURCE: 5 year old Maytag Wide by Side Refrigerator side not cooling

Same issue with my 6 yr old Maytag side-by-side model #MSD2756GEW. Turned out it was caused by a faulty circuit board. This circuit board is located in the upper right fridge section. Apparently these boards are sensitive to power surges (which we have here in central Texas from time to time.) When the circuit board is fried, it makes a noise like a fan blade malfunctioning and it stops the auto defrost feature in the freezer from working. So the freezer ices up at the back, and the ice prevents the cold air from reaching the fridge section.

Our circuit board (which we thought was a fan) made ominous noises for a few months. (The noise would last only a minute or so and stop shortly after we opened a door). Eventually we noticed that the fridge wasn't as cold and the freezer had snow in it. Finally the board stopped making noise and about a week or so afterward we noticed that the milk had spoiled and the fridge wasn't very cold. The food in the freezer side pretty solidly frozen, thankfully.

In addition to replacing the circuit board, the fridge had to be de-iced or it would not work properly. I put it all frozen into a large camping cooler where it stayed for several hours. I opened the freezer doors and put table fan and pointed a hobby light which gets quite hot, at the back of the freezer. Within 3 hours, the ice had melted significantly so I could see through the grate at the back of the freezer. This really great technician named Tracy, made a special trip to the parts store to get the circuit board and came back within a couple hours, bringing with him a steamer. He removed the back panel inside the freezer section (the coils are behind there) and used the steamer to melt the rest of the ice before he left.

Tracey, who works for a local appliance repair company, told me that about 4 years ago, Maytag started making their fridges with built-in surge protection, so the circuit boards apparently don't get fried on the newer models as they do on my 6 yr old model. He recommended that we put plug the fridge into a heavy-duty surge protector - which we are definitely going to do.

MY REFRIGERATOR CONSTANTLY RUNS BUT FREEZER DOES NOT FREEZE AND FRIDGE DOES NOT GET COLD. ONLY A LITTLE COLD AIR BLOWS FROM INSIDE OF FREEZER BUT NOT COLD ENOUGH. FRIDGE MOTOR JUST KEEPS RUNNING AND


Can you tell me if there is a layer of frost covering the back panel inside the back of the freezer? Here is a photo of a panel that has frost building because of a defrost problem HERE
Here is a GD5NHAXMB00Parts Manual go to page 16 and item number 6 is the 2303804 User Control and Display Board

The board could be the problem causing defrost failure or the W10135091 Electronic Control Board

Sometimes these boards will have burn marks or signs of heat damage but not always. Can you unplug the refrigerator and examine the above board first? It can be found on page 17 and item number 18 Once you have done this and see no problems we will examine the defrost heater 2323198 Defrost Heater

Refrigerator side is not cold enough the Freezer side is fine, is there a fan that blowes the air from freezer into refrigerator and where is it located


Not necessarily. There may be 2 compressors on the back of the unit, one for each side. If no,t the fan will blow cold air from the freezer's evaporator into the fridge side and will be between the two.

Maytag MSD2651HEW refrigerator not cool, freezer works fine. If open both doors, feel cold air blowing in refrigerator side


try keeping the freezer door shut while felling for cold air blowing over to refrigerator side..if so problem lies in the thermostat...its not sensing the correct temp for the fridge side and closing the damper too early...also check to see if there is frost built up on the back wall of the freezer section if thats the case then you are at the begining stages of a defrost issue and soon no cold air will blow over to fridge side..let me know what you find

The refrigerator side of my Maytag, model MZD2766GE, is warm. The freezer is working fine. I feel cold air coming out by the crispers at the bottom but no cold air coming out at the top. HELP...Single...


If sounds like the top cold air tube is frosted up. If you remove the rear shield over the evaporator coil you will see the tube opening. If you use a hair dryer (not of the hottest setting) and blow hot air down the tube you should be able to clear it.

Freezer cold but other is not


In my somewhat limited experience there is usually a fan that blows cold air from the freezer side to the fridge side. I've had that fan go out before and cause this problem. I want to say that it was only like $20 to buy a new fan and put it in.

But yeah, if I'm not mistaken there isn't actually any cooling done on the fridge part of the refrigerator. It's all done on the freezer part. And then there is some sort of thermostat that controls how much cold air is blown from the freezer to the fridge.

MSD2454GR Side by Side refrigerator- freezer side fine, refrigerator side will not cool below 50 degrees; lots of condensation


If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat.


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

Maytag MSD2655HEB cold in bottom, no air flow


No air flow at all means Fan is not working. Also check damper between freezer and fridge.
