Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, 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.
  • if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

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

Freezer is cold but not keeping icecream frozen.


If, the fresh food section is 34- 38 degrees, then the freezer should be cold enough to keep ice cream solid. All of the cooling capability comes from the freezer section. I, personally, would not waste time or money on a ten year old box. Ten years ago it cost $1000, so, the outlay is $100 per year. Dump the old refrigerator and get a new one.

Maytag French Door MFD2561HEB water dispenser not working


We had the same issues with the water freezing and called a technician out. He added some extra insulation installed around the water lines inside the refrigerator and we also keep our frig at 40 degrees Fahrenheit, slightly above the manufacturers default setting. Hope this helps.

two reasons I can think of, fan motor because of the whining description you descibed, and possible freon leak. I think the first is the problem!

Fridge and freezer not working on new Maytag, Help!!


at 5 months old don't try to fix it yourself CALL the store where it was purchased or maytag
you may mess up the warranty if you try to fix it yourself
document all of the calls you make to where and who you spoke with at what time
ask for promises in writing have them fax it to you so you have the promise in hand

Freezer warnm up


It does sound like the normal defrost cycle. Aslong as it stays at an average below 12 degrees it is normally working fine. Check to make sure the back air vents and front grille are clean and the fan by the compressor is running when the unit is on. It has to get rid of the heat so it will freeze.
