Maytag mtb1950gr freezer fan

The freezer fan on the model mtb1950gr refrigerator is not working. Is this a ralatively easy fix? Other forums said it was the condenser or evaporator fan and it happens often(every 2-4 years) with the Maytag's. Any advice? My freezer is wet on top and it's about 90 degrees out!

it could be out of gas...can you open the bottom rear cover and feel the air coming out of the condenser blower. if its not warm, you have a leak where refrigerant escapes...

remove the baskets and shelves in the freezer and remove the rear panels after shutting the fridge down. If you see heavy frost on the coils then the defrost model needs replaced. If not, check the that the fans runs, and then that the thermostat works and then that the damper that allows the air to the fridge compartment is opening correctly.

SOURCE: Maytag model (MTB1950GR) tripped off the power switch and smell

Hi, It sounds like the relay onyour compressor. They will smell when it goes bad. Remove the rear panel on the back of the refrigerator and see if the smell is around the compressor.
Please let me know If I can assist you further.

SOURCE: Maytag MSD2456GEB fridge section warm

Please remember I am attempting to diagnose your appliance without being there and with very little information.
Sorry but if your freezer is 10 degrees, it is running warm. Freezer is designed to run between -10 and 0 degrees. Reset controls, place them in the middle of the scales. The controls can be confusing. The control that turns the unit on and off is your freezer thermostat and the other is the damper that controls the air flow from the freezer into the fresh food section. What I would think is wrong with your unit is one of two things.

  1. You have a defrost problem.
  2. Your inside fan is not running.
1. Look at the inside back panel of your freezer. If you have ice or frost built up on the panel, you most likely have a bad defrost heater.
2. Check to be sure you have air flow inside your fresh food section coming from your freezer. If not and your control is setting around mid-ways, you have a bad fan or your defrost heater is bad and ice is blocking the air flow.
Please rate solution

Model mtb1950gr. Freezer stopped working. Fan is blowing cool air up there, but everything is completely thawed. Refridgerator part below it seems to be working fine. Vaccumed back.No change.

Your defrost may be stuck on. Cool air is not the same as freezing air. Frost free freezers use less than freezing air passed over and through the food to warm any ice crystals and move the moisture out of the freezere.

Why is my freezer warming up?

Sounds like your heater/defroster went bad and by now there is probably ice build up and fan can not push the cold air to the freezer. Very easy fix but you will have to buy new heating cable ($25-40) and strongly advise to buy a new thermostat as well(around$10) it snaps on heating cable and controls power to heating cable whenever there is ice build up.

Whatever you do do not run the refrigerator with the freezer fan not working. That Fan is about $70.00 depending who you get it from and easy to change. If you could find someone we could do it without calling service, that is what we are here for. See if you can find someone with a digital meter and let me know when ready, Sea Breeze
