NOT COOLING IN THE REFRIGERATOR

My fridge runs all the time, freezer compartment is working fine, however the refrigerator compartment is not cooling. I called a service tech out to take a look at the problem and you guest it the refrigerator was working when he came, it started to cool correctly. He started to talk about the compuiter control moduel being out of order, not realy sure what he was talking about, but he said that there was nothing he can do for now. I pointed out to him that i notice that while the compressor is running the condenser fan was not, could this cause the problem?

    Have a Maytag side-by -side #MSD2756GEB that freezer stays very cold as usual, but Refrigerator stays at 50-60 degrees. This occurred about a month ago but lasted for a few hours (I woke up and noticed that the milk

    was not cold as usual) but it seemed to fix itself. Now the problem has

    reoccurred. I did notice some ice on the back vent near the ice that I unblocked from the vent slats. Any suggestions?

I have the same issue currently (and in the past). I originally had a Maytag repairman fix the first time - the defrost console was not working (part 61005988). He replaced part and manually defrosted coils in freezer. Part seems to last only a few years.

Have simialar problem, refrigerator section starts getting warm and then when I unplug it a whole lot of water comes out from underneath all over the floor, I let it sit for a day and then plug it back in and it works fine for about another month then the same thing all over again, it is model MSD 2758 DR
the ice maker quit after the first year and I didn't bother to get it fixed was told it wasn't in warranty :-( Has anyone had the same problem as this? I am ready to just get another unit and have this hauled away, it has the temperature controlled drawers, was very expensive at the time of purchase and only had it maybe 8 years.

Yes it could. On most refrigerators the condensor fan is always on when the compressor is. If this is computer controlled it should still come on shortly after the compressor starts. If this stays off the compressor will overheat and cycle on the overheat/overload sensor. THis would definately cause your symptoms as on most boxes all cooling coils are in the freezer and the fridge is cooled by cold freezer air. On a computer controlled model it could be programmed to cool the freezer first then let some down to the fridge.

    Just another thought. Is the light staying on in either the fridge or freezer compartment. This will cause high temp.

The freezer is working fine but the fridge is not cooling. The motor is running constantly. I did accidently leave the fridge door ajar for a few hours


Check to see if the cold air supply from the freezer to the fridge section is blocked and that the fan is running. The fridge uses cold air from the freezer to cool and many times the intake is blocked by something in the freezer compartment.

I turned off the refrigerator and left the freezer door open so the coils and the vents could thaw out. The cold air was not getting to the refrigerator section because of ice blocking the vents.

FRIDGE NOT WORKING


Most side by side and other models of refrigerator freezer combinations are of one basic design. The freezer section does the cooling for both compartments. The refrigerator section gets it cold air from the freezer compartment. Therefore check for frost on the back wall of the freezer compartment. If frost is present there you have a defrost problem and it is cutting off the air that cools the refrigerator section.

I think this problem may already be resolved in some manor because of the date of post. Posts should expire after an unreasonable time period.

Sounds like the evap fan is not running. The fan takes cold air from the freezer to cool the refer compartment. If the freezer is cold the compressor is running. Generally the freezer will stay cold since the cooling coils are there but it must have the fan working to get the air up to the refer area. Pull everything out the freezer and take the back panel off to view the coils and fan, etc. It's a simple easy job to change the fan. If you find the coils are a total block of ice then it's another problem... the defrost cycle isn't working. Sooo... see if the fan is running in the freezer compartment first. See http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/AA43-57.gif for fan location, item 18 is the fan motor. Let us know what you find out.
