Same problem with my GS6SHEXN002. 50 degrees in the refrigerator 10 degrees in the freezer. Everything appears to be fine it just doesn't get any colder than 50Deg. Came on gradually over a a month or so. Still no solution...

How do I clean the coils on my Maytag freezer-on-bottom fridge? (Model #i is MF D 2560HEW)


HI,

Pick up a coil brush from you home improvement center near you and remove the grill in the front under the freezer door. With the brush, brush the coils under the unit to clean them. Have a vacuum handy, you will need it for dust and hair if you have pets in the home. Good Luck

Why isn't it cooling correctly?


Good morning Mark.

There are a few general things that can underlie a cooling problem:
A couple of things to think about?
  1. Are both the refrigerator and freezer having trouble, or just one of them? The refrigerator section is usually cooled by circulating air from the freezer into the fridge compartment, using a variable slide vent to manage how much or little air is passed to the fridge part. (This is why sometimes you'll have stuff in one section that seems to get frozen at times - it's sitting right next to the vent). If this vent gets stuck, especially in the closed or mostly closed position, the fridge compartment won't cool enough. the culprit is often that ice has frozen into the mechanism for the vent movement. You'll want to look up a DIY on checking that out. Here is one aimed at Kenmore/Sears/Whirlpool, but it'll no doubt overlap over 90% with your Roper.

There is also a site I can point you to that talks a bit more on possible culprits (with parts for sale, of course)
Roper Refrigerator Freezer is Cold But Refrigerator is Warm
If everything is warm, fridge and freezer both, then you're generally looking for either a dead/worn out / dirty thermostat, that may think the fridge is cooler than it really is, or possibly an issue with the compressor.

Also, if the freezer area is clogged with ice, this can influence the thermostat, and also impair the ability of the coolant to pull heat out of the system - (you have to flow the heat through a big layer of ice, which makes the system less efficient).

You can also look to see if you have a tribe of dust bunnies that have taken up residence on the cooling coils. If so, dust them off with a soft brush or some compressed canned air (or a vacuum cleaner wand)

Last thought - if the cooling fan for the compressor has stopped, failed, or gotten jammed, that will significantly reduce the compressor capability, and burn it out before long. Make sure the fan is spinning when the fridge is plugged in.

Hoping this helps. If you go do any defrosting, avoid doing it with sharp objects, and use some patience. One tiny pinhole in a freezer coil and you're looking at a repair that will almost certainly cost more than the fridge is worth.

Good Luck!

Freezer not freezing. meltdown?


clean the accumulated dust from under the fridge. The fridge doesnt get cold enough, the freezer gets too cold, it needs air to pass through, grab the dust, or vacuum so that air can pass across the coils

Fridge comes on frequently.


The best thing to do is pull it away from the wall. Get the back bottom cover off (probably, card board). Get a good vacuum and clean the condenser coil of any dust....Getting the condenser coil as clean as possible, then replacing the fan motor would be your best option to get the fridge to run quieter and less frequent.

Fridge not cooling, freezer is fine, says 2 degress is warm, its not that old about 3 years


Hello. These can freeze up inside where you cannot see it. Your unit may actually need defrosted or the defrost heater element could be out. These can freeze up inside where you cannot see it. Please try the following:

Empty the unit out and unplug it overnight, leaving open with a pan to collect any water runoff if possible. Ice may melt from inside the freezer panels (ice only visible if panels inside freezer pulled off too see coils).

Pull your fridge out from wall and vacuum off any dust-bunnies or clogging dust from the back of the fridge (not to say house is dirty, this happens to fridges eventually). Just make sure air can fully flow through any fridge cover vents. Try to run the fridge normally again.

If none of this helps and it acts up again the defroster bulb is probably out inside the freezer down below the coils. This is normal as they have to be replaced eventually. Since yours is partly working it may just need a normal defrost and vacuuming as shown above.

Bottom of refrigerator not getting cold enough, freezer is working fine, - Magic Chef -model MCBR1000w


have you cleaned out the coils underneath the fridge? it's very simple. pull the fridge out, look underneath(try pulling off the bottom grill from the front for more access), and start cleaning. to much dust and lint will hinder the coils from cooling. A vacuum with the brush attachment or little broom works good.

Side by Side Can't find model # Not cooling enough


I cleaned condenser coils with vacum, emptied the defrost tray and vacumed all the dust from the unit, unplugging first of course. Now it is working just fine. Thank you fixya for all your help and postings.

I still can't find the model number anyplace on the unit. This unit is only 2 1/2 year old but no model number to be found on the unit. But
