Question about Maytag 25.6 cu. ft. Wide-By-Side Refrigerator with PuriClean II Ice and Water
I just wanted to followup on your solution regarding a Maytag SxS model MSD2756DEW frig section not cooling at times problem. You commented that it might be a defrost problem.
Well, right after I posted my problem, I turned the refrig & freezer down (approx to 2 or 3) as this has helped in the past. I did not get a chance to check the evaporator coil in the freezer as you suggested but did notice that more and more frost was forming in the back and on the evaporator cover. Once the frost became wet, the refrig appeared to "work" again, i.e. cool air appeared to circulate from the top vent. Since I didn't get a chance to check the evaporator coils as you mentioned but noticed all the frost, do you think my problem is a defrost-related issue? How can I determine or a service repairman identify whether it's the defrost timer or the control board or something else? I have not had luck with repairmen and was wondering how I can be assured of a qualified one. The last repairman did not mention a defrost issue... Thanks for your help... Appreciate it...
If the defrost timer is malfunctioning, and I think that unit has a mechanical timer, causing the defrost to cycle slower than it should, then yes... the coil can freeze not allowing air to pass through until the next defrost. One of the first things a repairman should check is the defrost circuit if the coil is frozen. Many times you would not notice unless you open the door alot or your freezer is quite full.
