    I took off the back panel off the Freezer and it was icy all over the coil. It took me a couple of hours to melt it with a hair dryer. Then it's working fine now. I know this is a matter of time before it freeze up again.



    Are you still ok with the possible causes


    1. bad defrost timer
    2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
    3. bad thermo switch in freezer

    If yes, should I start replacing them in that order?

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

    it should be only one of them. if you have a ohm or continuity meter ($10 at walmart) then you can check the bimetal thermostat and the heater while you have it defrosted. hint: electricity will only go thru the bimetal thermostat when it is very cold.

My Maytag Plus refrigerator does not work, lack of frost, cold. The freezer side is working fine.


Need to see if the damper is open inside the fridge.  This the vent in to top left hand corner.  If it is not open then the damper needs to be replaced.  If it is open then one of the return vents (lower part of fridge) is blocked/plugged.  Let me know what you find.

Refridgerator side not cold freezer side fine


Difficult to properly diagnois with such a brief description, but try the following as a good first step at correcting the problem. Reset the freezer and fridge thermostat settings at the factory default. Also, check the freezer section to make sure nothing is blocking the cold air supply vent into the fridge, do the same on the fridge side too.

Normally is the freezer is working fine, and the fridge is warm, it can be due to either a blockage of the cold air cross vent by items in either the freezer, fridge, or both, preventing proper cold air flow from the freezer into the fridge. Also, check to see if the cold air vent is not frozen or obstructed, with a fashlight (you;ll need to remove stuff from fridge and freezer to make this possible to check.

If the vent is not obstructed and you can clearly feel cold air passing from the freezer into the fridge, it is possible that the cold air vent control has ceased operating properly and needs to be replaced. Usually though this type of problem is caused by people over stuffing things into the freezer section and blocking the cold air cross over vent. Hope this helps.

Maytag MZD2766GE side by side, fridge not getting cold.


Your timer for the automatic defrost is defective. Replace it. If you thawed out the back of the freezer, this could be good for 3-7 days and it will freeze up again. I had the same trouble.

Fridge is warm even when i adjust temp. control.freezer is good.


if your fridge has 2 set of dials one numbers and the other letters than you need to adjust the dial that has letters on it. If the fan in your freezer is not blowing, then it won't force the cold air from the freezer to the fridge. Make sure fan blows then adjust the letter knob.

Maytag side by side model GS24C8C3EV Refrigerator too warm


it is almost certainly a defrost problem. when fault has occured, remove freezer bzck panel and see if there is ice build-up. if so this confirms a defrost problem - possibly that the element is open circuit
