    Ice is building up on the floor of the freezer again. This happened about 3 years ago and the repairman replaced the defrost assembly. Is this the problem again??

    Ice builds up on the back wall of the freezer and the food defrosts or melts. We have unplugged, defrosted, and replugged several times. It works for a few days or and then happens again. At first I suspected sloppy door closing but now I think there is a mechanical problem. Anyone out there know what it is?

Maytag side by side msd264rheb freezer works frig isn't cold. We found ice on bottom freezer side and did melt it with a hair dryer. Frig vent is letting in, now a little cool air, but not a lot.


If you found ice in the freezer then there is usually a lot more behind the back plate. If you let it defrost completely it should work good for a couple days until the ice builds up again. you more than likely have a deefrost issue. There are usually nthree components in a typical defrost circiut. The heater, defrost thermostat and a defrost timer or control. one or those is bad.

If the freezer is staying cold it sounds like a defrost system problem. A bad timer, heater or thermostat can cause frost to build up on the coils and block air flow to the refrig side. Check out ACMEHowTo.com for troubleshooting the defroster problem.
There is a small duct between the freezer and refrigerator side if this is blocked the frig side won't cool.

Side by side Maytag frig that is warm on top, not bottom


You can turn the thermostat off for now to let the ice thaw out, if a door was left open there might not be anything wrong, but if it freezes up again sounds like you might have a bad defrost heater or defrost limit. Hope this helps

Fridge not staying cool, freezer still freezing


Try defrosting freezer, sometimes when the defrost thermostat fails it causes ice too build up behind the walls of the freezer then it restricts the air flow to the refer side. If it works after defrosting then you probably need to get a new defrost thermostat.

Load noise coming from freezer


nothing to do with light bulb - noise is probably fan hitting ice that has built up. to check, remove back panel inside freezer and check for ice build up. melt off with a hairdryer and get back to me if i'm right

Water in the frig and possible overheating


clean the coils and check to see if the condensor fan is working. Call your local dealer and ask them to order you new o-rings for the filter mount to fix the leak from the filter.
