SOURCE: frig temp

Do a "temp" test. Put a normal thermometer in a glass of water and put it in the fridge overnight. Is the water temp matching the set point temp? It can be +/- 5 degrees (not an exact science sort of thing). But basically if the fridge is working OK and you just have a setpoint I'd say it's probably not worth the effort to change the thermistor, etc.

SOURCE: Refrigerator not cooling.

If the compressor is extremely hot, it could be seized, if this is the case you would have to have a new one installed.

SOURCE: freezer/ fridge not cooling, compressor not running

this refig has 2 independent temp controls one that operates the freezer side (this one also operates compressor, condenser fan and evporator fan) and one that controls the temp for the fresh food side this one operates a damper and evaporator motor.
I looked up you model number and you need to check the control that is located to the left side of the control panel or the freezer control. if it is 60f in the unit then if this control is good it should read infinity on a ohms meter. if its bad you will get no reading at all. alternatley you may try hitting the control solidly with the **** of a screwdriver sometimes the contact will hange open. message me back if you need further assistance. peyton...

SOURCE: Fan running,both cold settings at 4 , freezer 14 degrees C

you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.

Start by checking the compressor. If it is running,you should tell by it being warm and a slight vibration/hum....it will start and should run until thermostat stops it. Since it's not cooling, it should be running all the time. There are 2 copper or stainless tubes entering the compressor. One should be hot;the other cold. If both are same temp,or the compressor not running,or is hot to the touch, your compressor is done for(some have a removable connector with contacts that are replaceable) Compressors aren't cheap.

Rangemaster sxs cream . Why is my fridge and freezer the same temp ???? If anybody could give me an answer or solution.


Jason,
MOST refrigerators get there cold from the freezer side and circulate it via a fan that's also normally inside the freezer. There are three motors normally in a refrigeration system. The inside Evaporator fan motor that circulates air across the evaporator coil inside the box, the Condenser fan motor near the compressor that cools the freon after compression, and the compressor itself. If you open the doors (and sometimes you may have to hold in the door switches) do you hear a fan running? If not you could have a couple things going on: 1. The fan(s) has failed. 2. The freezer Evap coil may of iced over and the fan too is frozen stopped. 3. Your condensing unit:(compressor, condenser fan, condenser coils) has a problem.
It is important to know if the compressor itself is running. If there is a loose connection to the compressor via the start/over load relay (normally attaches directly onto the compressor), or if the start/over load otself is bad the compressor will not run. Best way to tell is via gauges but I doubt your frig has ports. Check to see if your compressor is really hot. Could be bad start/over load relay or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off even though fan continues to run. The fact your fan is running TYPICALLY means the thermostat is calling for lower temps and the fan/compressor kick in together.

At 100 deg.it does not shutoff automatically


If your talking about a refrigerator, it never will as its goal is to try and cool, and its trying. It is important to know if the compressor itself is running. If there is a loose connection to the compressor via the start/over load relay (normally attaches directly onto the compressor), or if the start/over load itself is bad the compressor will not run. Best way to tell is via gauges but I doubt your frig has ports. Check to see if your compressor is really hot. Could be bad start/over load relay or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off even though fan continues to run.

8 yr old maytag msd2758drw side by side isn't freezing


If the clicking noise is comming from the rear of the frig it could be your compressor trying to start. The motor would be the fan in the freezer running. That part would be normal.
If it is the compressor it could be replaced but if it were me I would buy a new frig.

Small frig stopped


are you sure the compressor is running or is it just humming trying to start then clicking out on the overload, if so you have a 50\50 shot of the relay being bad, otherwise the compressor is shot
