Question about Maytag MZD2766GES Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Maytag SidebySide model MZD2766GES Fridge portion not working...

There has been an intermittent clicking/buzzing noise in the top portion of the refriderator that lasted for a month. Finally the refridgerator is no longer cold, but the freezer seems to work fine. There was some frost on the back panel I removed, but nothing heavy. After reading some fixya forum posts, I think I need a new Adaptive Defrost Board and a new Defrost Heater Sensor. Can you please tell me where to find the Defrost Heater sensor on my unit and the appropriate part number?

Also, please tell me if you feel I am replacing the wrong parts. Thanks.
Marty

Yes probably the a.d.c. but make sure all ice is defrosted from evap. coil. remove the freezer panel and use heat gun or hair dryer.

MZD2766GES compressor not firing


Is your compressor giving sounds like a buzz followed by a click periodically? Is the compressor exterior warm/hot? Most likely the compressor start relay assembly is bad, or the compressor is locked up, (frozen internally). If you connect an amp probe to the red wire of the compressor, and the momentary reading meets or exceeds the LRA rating on the compressor tag, most likely the compressor is at fault.

MZD2766 fridge light works but the fridge and freezer is not working. The water dispenser and ice cube not working either. I did hear buzzing coming from inside the top fridge side occassionally.


it could be a defective cold control,you can use a jumper wire to bypass this and see if the compressor starts,or it could be a bad ptc overload on the compressor itself,and these are easily changed too
