Question about Maytag MSD2656G Side by Side Refrigerator
My Maytag mod. MSD2656dew has stopped cooling everywhere but started with the refrigerator side,then the upper freezer. Now the lower freezer is at 35degs. The fan inside sounds like it's working but I don't feel much air flow. The fan by the compressor is running, but the compressor only runs for 5 or ten sec. at the most,then clicks off. It does this several times every couple of minutes after it's first turned on, then stops.The compressor is warm, but not hot.I dont see any ice in the vents either, but have not removed any internal covers. It does seem to be making ice, but very slowly. This problem started after the refrig. door was left partially open several times due to a shelf in the door hanging up. EXACTLY THE SAME PROBLEM, FRIDEGE STARTED COOLING OFF TWO DAYS AGO, THEN THE FREEZER EARLY YESTERDAY, AND TODAY, THE FREEZER IS DRIPPING. I JUST BOUGHT IT USED AND TURNED IT ON LAST FRIDAY (ONE WEEK AGO), AFTER LETTING IT SIT FOR 10 HOURS. I DON'T HAVE A MANUAL, BUT THE MODEL IS A MSD 2656DEW - "MAYTAGE PLUS"... THE SERIAL NUMBER IS 12584578YK. I WAS TOLD THE FRIDGE WAS 1.5 YEARS OLD. THE FRIDGE WAS WORKING FOR THREE DAYS, THEN BEGAN GETTING WARMER... NOTE!!!! I DO NOT HAVE WATER GOING IN TO THE FRIDGE. I CAN SEE THAT THE HOSES (THINK CLEAR PLASTIC) ARE GOING BACK UNDER THE FRIDGE. I DON'T HAVE A MANUAL TO LOOK AT EITHER. ANY HELP IS MUCH APPRECIATED. THANKS!
have actually been having the same problem. We have a Maytag MTB2156GEQ
and it hasn't been cooling well at all lately. Temp in the fridge is
about 52 degrees even on the highest setting. The freezer seems to be
fine. I pulled off the back panel and vacuumed out the condensor coil
and everything else under there. I then pulled out the control panel on
the ceiling of the fridge. The channel between the freezer and fridge
was almost completely blocked with ice. I cleaned it out by taking out
the back panel of the freezer and pouring hot water down through the
hole until it was clear.
that seem fix the issue.

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.
