MAYTAG MBR2256KES Is a defrost timer the same as a defrost thermostat? My freezer is coated in heavy frost and my fridge won't get below 55 degrees. Thanks

with the model number you sent you don't have a timer you have a jazz board in your machine,it's a computer board located behind the touch pad where you set the temps in the fridge section and the timer isn't the same as the defrost thermostat.let me ask you this is the frost on the back inside wall of the freezer or on the ceiling and frozen water droplets on the packages,a common problem with bottom mount freezers is the door gets left open mostly from a food package in the way,you push the door in,it hits the package,it feels like the door closed but it's open and warm air gets in and freezes up the air ducts.if it's on the back wall you have a defrost problem,bad defrost thermostat,defrost heater or computer board.if it's a defrost problem remove the bottom kickplate and look for the tech sheet,it will tell you how to put the machine into defrost,i think you open the door,hold in the lite switch,press the down arrow three times on the fridge setting,let go of the lite switch,press down again and you'll see an s,prees down again and you're in defrost,shut the door,but check that on the tech sheet,listen in the freezer,the fan shouls shut down and if it did go into defrost you'll hear a crackling sound,if the compressor is still running most likely the board is bad,,i can help you out if it's a defrost problem but first let me know if it looks like the door was left open or the inside back panel is covered with like snow or frost.

All of a sudden our refrigerator freezer and refrigerator stopped freezing and cooling.. The fan is working, cleaned the coils, but when the compressor kicks on it only runs for about 10-15 seconds before...

UNPLUG and remove the compressor relay...if it rattles when you shake it..its bad, if not, it could be the takes alot of specialized training and tools and material to replace a compressor. Its not a job that can be done by the average person..

I have a Maytag Refrigerator Bottom freezerMBR2556KES2 with a left hand opening can i change the opening to open from the right? gary

it doesn't appear that this is possible with this unit, typically anymore you can't change the doors on refigerators as there are too many services (ice, water, freon) going through the door, and yours has a permanently attach tag at the top right and there are no holes on the other side of the door for the handle. some would think that you could turn the door over and that would put the handle on the other side, but i am betting that it will not work

Bottom freezer - Refrigerator top not cooling- All vents from freezer open , no food in the way. Is there a fan ?

Yes there is and it is located in the base panel of the fridge. Look for a set of slotted vents in the inside of the fridge and the fan is located behind those slots. This fan uses the freezer temp to control the fridge temp.

Good luck hope this helped you some

I would liek to know how thick the doors are on a maytag fridge.

Removing the doors will get you 2 inches. Look at the hinges, the one on top of the top door has screws to remove and the bottom of the top door fits onto a pin. Similar for the bottom door.

Maytag refrigerator mbr2256kes leaks water about every 36 hours. It originates underneath, midway back and a little to the left (when looking at it).

Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curtain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you have any other question. Mike

Freezer part works but not fridge

The circulating fan(Freezer Fan) supplies air to freezer as well as the refrigerator. As the DC brushless motor wares out the rpms reduce to a point that it is hard to diagnose. This motor alone costs around $80.00( Replacement of the fan motor is labor intensive to remove fan assembly because the electrical connections are at the exteme rear of the freezer compartment
