Model # MFF2557HES Top refrigator section stoped cooling freezer is working


You may have Ice buildup in the freezer. You freezer has a fan in the bak that sends the cool air to the fridge. Your fridge dial determines how muh cold air comes from the freezer. Try defrosting the freezer. You may have to pull the back panel off of the inside of the freezer to get the ice thawed. The ice build up is likely causing the air to not get to the fridge. Hope it works.

We have a model MBF1956KEB the freezer works but not the fridge

it's broke in the closed position so no cold air can get blown over from the freezer and into the fridge section,open the freezer door and make sure you hear the fan blowing,also check around the freezer door and ceiling of the freezer and make sure there isn't any ice,common problem with bottom mount freezers is the door can get left open,warm air gets sucked into the freezer and ice forms in the air ducts,if all looks good i would say you have a bad damper,one more thing,remove the bottom kick panel there should be a tech sheet either folded up in the panel or taped on the cabinet wall down there,it will tell you how to do a diagnostics check to check all the parts like the damper,this way you know what part is bad.hope this helps you out and good luck.

Error code er ff.how do i fix this? freezer is still freezing but fridge is warm.


The error code appears when there is an abnormality of BLDC FAN Motor for Freezer. It circulates cold air from the freezer to the fridge to allow cooling. Check the motor wiring harness for poor connections. If the motor is not working at all, you need to replace it.
To remove the fan and motor assembly:
  1. Remove the freezer shelf. (If your refrigerator has an
    icemaker, remove the icemaker first).
  2. Remove the plastic guide for slides on left side by
    unscrewing phillips head screws.
  3. Remove the grille by removing one screw and pulling the
    grille forward.
  4. Remove the Fan Motor assembly by loosening 2 screws
    and disassembling the shroud.
  5. Pull out the fan and separate the Fan Motor and Bracket.
  6. Replace fan motor assembly in reverse order.

I cannot change the temperature on my Maytag MFC2061HES. Whenever I try to change either the refer or freezer temp, it creeps back down to 33 with the freezer going to 6. I cannot turn it off. The...


It sounds like your fridge has problem with the damper stuck open. The damper is in the top-back-center of the fresh food section. I can't tell by the pics I have how to get to it, but looks like it's simple to get to it - just remove the damper cover.
Check the damper for the ice buildup. Clean if needed. Unplug the fridge and check continuity on damper motor. Replace damper if no continuity.
Check the microswitch on the damper assembly. C on switch [where it connects to black wire] should make contact with NC [yellow/red] when button is not pressed, and C with NO [blue/red] should make contact when button is down).
With temp in the fresh food section so low, the damper should be closed, and if it isn't there should be power (110v ac) coming to the motor either continuously until it closes or for a short period of time within a few minutes after you try to set the temperature, can't tell by schematic. Unplug, connect your DMM in "volts ac" parallel to the damper motor (red and green/yellow wires), and plug fridge back in. If it does not show 110v immediately, set the DMM to show the maximum voltage registered, and leave in the fridge for 20-30 minutes, with doors closed. If there was 110v, and the damper is still open - replace damper. Otherwise it's very likely that the control board failed.

Maytag side by side fridge...water dispenser problem


If the water is visible in the front, more than likely the hose has become disconnected from the door, if you look at the lower left hand corner you should see the hose come from underneath the machine and attach to the door via a plastic quick connect, it is just a push lock connection. You may have to pull of the toe kick and the left hand end cap depending on the model to see this.
