If it happens again, check the defrost timer. If it does not self defrost, the cooling coils (evaporator) get plugged with ice and although it is frozen, the ice stops the transfer of heat. Unplugging the unit allowed it to defrost so air could circulate again.

Have a maytag french door fridge on top freezer on bottom, fridge is not staying cold, frezzer works just fine?


Hi

Check the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost. Check the freezer (evaporator) fan to see if it is running. Check the condenser coils (under the unit) for blockage from dust. Check the condenser fan (under the unit) to see if it is running.
If you have frost in the freezer there is a problem with the defrost system and the freezer will start to warm eventually as well as the fresh food section. If that is the problem you can check the defrost terminator, defrost heater/s, and the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control If used on your unit or the main control board if so equipped. These things usually require dismantling the freezer and other areas of the refrigerator to be checked.

You could defrost the freezer by disconnecting the power to the refrigerator and letting it sit for at least 24 hours with both doors wide open to allow the frost to melt completely but it will build up again in 1-2 weeks and start the warming up again.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Fridge isnt working.freezer side is


well if this just started you will most likely find within the next 24 hours the freezer will stop also...the unit actually cools from the freezer side first and then the air is pushed over into the fresh food side or refrigerator side as you are calling it... few things you want to check... first there is a opening between the two sides make sure that it is clear and if has an eelctronic damper it is opening if it is warming up in refrig it should be wide open at current time. 2nd if that is good make sure you have no frost on the back wall of the freezer wall and that the fan in the freezer is working . you may have to hold the door switch closed will listening... the fan in the freezer should be running and there should be no frost on the back wall... if there is frost then maybe you have a defrost problem which could be a heater,a defrost thermostat or a timer problem... if there is no frost make sure the compressor is running and you here no clickin coming from compressor .. hope this helps check them items and if you need anymore help post again....

Freezer is cold, but refrigerator not and it is all the way to coldest. What is wrong?

Freezer side is cold but the fridge side is not getting cold


Luispinto243 --
The heat exchanger is in the freezer side of a refrigerator. If the cold air pathway has gotten frosted-up, or the blower is not working, the fridge side will get warm. If possible, fully defrost the unit and the frost/ice build-up will thaw-out and the fridge will start working again. Adjust the thermostat to the energy-saving position. Trying to lower the temperature will not fix the problem. If you are still having problems, write back. -- SWT

Maytag wide by side not cooling


no cold, no compression.

Expansion of compressed freon or ammonia (these days) genartes the cold. You need a compressor running, a proper working expansion valve (not frozen in position) and ventilation over heat exchanger to get lost of generated heat from compression.

Thermostat may be broken. Check this with other temperature gauge around.

check in the freezer side and look at the back wall and see if there is any build up of frost, your coil may be block, so no air flowing through the coil, your unit may not defrosting, you need to check the defrost heater,the defrost timer or the defrost thermostat one of these part can be defective

My maytag fridge frosted up and got warm. I let it sit turned off for about 4 hours and it sems to be working fine now. will this reoccur?


yes it will frost up again, 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.
