Question about Maytag MTB2156G Top Freezer Refrigerator
Is the compressor running?how long has the freezer been melting out?if you open the fridge door,turn the cold control up and listen to see if you hear the compressor start,if it doesn't try tapping on the control with a screw driver,if the control is bad it sticks inside and if you tap it sometimes it will free it and start but it will stop again,just doing this to check what's bad in the fridge,lso there's a timer in the fridge section,look around where the control is,you'll see a hole in the bottom of the console,you can stick a straight bladed screw driver up it and turn it slowly until it clicks,if the compressor starts when it clicks you have a bad timer and it was stuck in defrost,if the compressor is running and the freezer is still melting out you could have a leak in the sealed system a freon leak,you can check this by removing the back inside wall of the freezer,look at the evap coil,if there's just ice on the top instead of an even frost pattern over the whole coil then you have a freon leak,if the fridge has been running and you look at the coil it should have frost covering the whole coil,if ice is just on top it's new refigerator time,get back to me and let me know if the compressor is running,iis the door closing correctly and no rips in the gasket,if it has a light in the freezer push the light switch in and make sure the light is going out,if not the bulb is heating up the freezer,make sure the evap fan is blowing in the freezer and no ice on the back wall of the freezer,has any water been dripping into the fridge from the freezer,if so you have a blocked drain.do some checks and get back to me,if the freezer is melting out it sounds like you have a compressor problem
