Question about Maytag MZD2766GES Side by Side Refrigerator

Both sides of our frig stopped cooling at the same time. The failure was all of a sudden, and appears to be complete.. Is it likely the condenser? If so, how hard to replace and about how much?

No its the ptc overload relay on the compressor thats bad,it merely unplugs off the side of the compressor and a new ptc is available from most appliance parts retailers locally or online,this component supplies start and run current to the compressor and also protects the compressor,if you can hear clicking,thats the relay,when removed they sometimes rattle when shook which is a good sign of them being bad too

Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator not cooling down frig or freezer


Is the compressor running? If so, feel the discharge line is the line cold? If not the unit is probably out of Freon, which means it will have a leak somewhere in the system.

My whirlpool frig stopped cooling, the condenser coils where really covered with dust and I cleaned them but the frig still does not cool. What should I look for next?


If the refrigerator isn't cool, you need to answer some questions, then see if the compressor is running.

First, answer these questions: Is the refrigerator completely dead? If so, see “It's stopped completely.” 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

Frigidaire Side By Side Not Cooling


That sounds like the start relay is buzzing. Unplug and lets check the compressor to see how hot and if too hot to hold your hand on the top of compressor we need to leave it unplugged until we find out if the start relay, start capacitor, overload or if the condenser fan stops after running a short while.

Condenser fan torque question (F'aire side-by-side)


It should not need help getting started and will hurt a little to stop with one finger also it will cause the sides of the frig to get warm maybe even hot around the door try puting a small fan behind the frig with the back panel off till you can replace the fan that will help you know if that is causeing your cooling problem

Frig section not cooling and at time appears to stop but freezer is ok


There is one compressor, condenser and evaporator in all refrigerators. The part that makes the cold inside the unit is the evaporator. It's in the freezer, behind a barrier on the back wall. It's a "coil" with many small fins. There is a fan that blows air over the evaporator which makes the air cold. This air comes from the freezer and stays in the freezer. The cold food section (the refrigerator) has a control that opens a hole for air to pass from the freezer to the fridge. This being said...you can rule out the "temperature control" for the fridge.

The sound you hear could be the compressor relay, the evaporator fan or maybe something else. It could be bad, it could be not too bad. (Like a fan blade a bit unbalanced with dust)

OK,,, back to the evaporator. There is a little heater next to the coil that turns on every 8 hours or so to defrost the coil. That's called the "defrost cycle". Makes sense, no? If the defrost timer (common problem) or defrost control board (common problem) go bad, your evaporator coil freezes up, and that's not good for anything in your refrigerator. But it can often keep the freezer section cold. You can easily disassemble the evaporator cover in the back of the freezer and take a look. If it looks like a block of ice, you probably have a defrost issue. An even, thin coat of frost is OK, but lots of ice is a no no.

Frig won't cool, freezer works fine


Defrost unit completely. You're frosting up. Then, avoid leaving the door open, leaving liquids and food uncovered. Clean condenser coils. If it happens again, you need refrigerant.
