  • Is the thermostat knob turned to the proper setting? If not, reset it.


  • Next, see if the compressor motor is running

    The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified appliance repair technician for further help.

    If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these:

    • The compressor


    • The Thermostat


    • The overload, relay, or capacitor


    • The defrost timer


    • The condenser fan motor

    That may be normal , important is cooling inside. Check if the gasket is insulating

      If the gasket is just warm that is normal, if it is burning hot pull the unit away from the wall and remove the rear bottom cover to check if the condenser fan is running. If it's dirty there, unplug the
      unit and clean rear of the fridge.

    Insulation does not melt - gaskets may be affected by hot temps.

    Your condenser coils may be located on sides of fridge. If so the unit will be warm to the touch on the outside.

    Mzd2766geb maytag ref freezer door insulation frozen solid with ice


    Even if the unit if issue free, this older design is still suseptable to moisture intrusion behind the inner liner. If your ice is below or around where the fointain area is, than you may be leaking water from the fountain behind the outer door shell. Since your outer door and inner liner are no longer avail, the best suggestion is to turn the entire fridge off, and let everything completely dry before re assembly. Once insulation gets imbedded with moisture and freezes, the insulation factor diminishes. Although your outer door insulation should be the newer style semi solid foamed in style, so moisture intrusion will not be any deeper than an inch or so. If the fountain heater has failed around the dispenser, you attract moisture to that area too. Pleazer Appliance...

    Exterior of refrigerator between freezer and refrigerator is hot to the touch


    It is normal unless there is a lot of dust below your refrigerator blocking airflow. What you feel is hot gas tubes behind the surface of the metal to help reduce moisture around the door frame and door seals that will get hotter should the fan and condenser below refrigerator have a blockage of dust blocking airflow, Sea Breeze.

    It's usually caused by the condenser fan which is underneath around back. If it's not running when the compressor runs it will cause the problem you describe. You will need to remove the cardboard backing on the back of the fridge to access the fan.

    Freezer malfunction


    Drain hole is clogged behind the panel that covers the coils. I found a peice of solder blocking mine. Water was freezing on the bottom of the freezer and leaking out to the floor.

    Door frame is always hot on freexer side


    Is it hot all the way around, or just on the face of the divider between the freezer and fridge? If it's just the divider, then it's probably not a defrost problem. When that divider gets hot, it usually means there is inadequate air flow over the condenser coils outside the unit.

    When the compressor is running, check for air blowing under the unit. If no air is moving, then you probably have a failed condenser fan. If the fan is running, then use your vacuum cleaner to clean the coils, and make sure there is space behind the fridge for air to flow.

    Area around freezer door is very hot to the touch. ice maker works, but after awhile the ice will melt. freezer is freezing.


    HI, That area being hot is a sign the refigerator is not cooling properly. We need to pin point the cooling problem.
    First, are you noticing any frost build up inside the rear freezer panel?
    Are the fans and the compressor running?
    Please let me know so I can assist you through this.

    Outside freezer hot and seals


    Fridge has either mullion heaters around door or most likely steel pipes just inside the skin of the perimeter of the door, this is to stop ice or condensation forming around the door seals, mainly the freezer, they are part of the condenser circuit ( hot part of the refrigeration system).
    It is normal for these to get hot, but in your case may be hotter than usual because of the constant running, the running may be caused by hot ambient temperatures, system being slightly short of refrigerant, faulty thermostat or in-efficient compressor.
    I suggest if temp is ok inside fridge dont worry too much, if you notice fridge starts loosing its capacity to refrigerate, have a refrigeration tech look at it.
