Question about Maytag MBF2556HEW / MBF2556HEB / MBF2556HEQ Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

MAYTAG MBB1952HEW - Bottom-Mount

In the first week my bottom-door freezer compartment light went out. Changed to new light bulb; no luck, still out. Called repairman. He came and said switch was frosted over. Cleaned off frost from middle top of the door and the light and everything worked fine...for a day. Next day no light, more frost on center of door top & light fixture.

Could this NEW refrig need a new gasket? A new door? A new light fixture? Tightened screws/bolts??

Have you heard of this specific frosting before?

I have this exact problem...was there a solution? Frost is causing bottom freezer door not to work, when I remove the frost, the light comes on. The gasket looks fine. Any Ideas?

How do I fix the freezer light in my Whirlpool side-by-side/freezer on bottom fridge?


first make sure the light bulb works for sure. then most likely it is the door switch. easy to replace. pull out, disconnect and replace. while you are at it, touch the two wires together and make sure the light goes on so you know it is the switch.

Light blinks off and on when door is open


If you mean that the freezer cabinet light flashes check the lamp fitting and ensure the bulb is fully tightened, they have a habit of becoming loose with the expansion and contraction of the fitting/bulb as the freezer compartment cools with the door shut and the bulb warms when the door is open.

How to replace the light bulb in the Maytag french door bottom freezer


Hopefully you have figured this out. Its fairly simple to do. If your freezer if full you will need to empty enough that you can place your hand in and on the Plastic Light cover. Its in the center at the top of the freezer. This cover is removed by simply applying a little pressure to the right and left corner and pulling toward you and down. The light cover with very little pressure should mover and pull down. Once it begins to lower in the back just keep a hold of it and mover your hand toward the rear of the freezer and the front tabs will slide out.
After changing the light bulb, simply put the front two tabs of the front of the cover in first and snap back into place by pushing up. Takes about 3 minutes to change the light bulb. Good Luck!

I have the bottom freezer w/2 doors up top....light inside will not go off and has started to melt some of the plastic pieces. How do you remove the light bulbs so the darn thing doesn't burn...


There should be a light switch inside each compartment, depress them with the door open one at a time, locate the bad switch and disconnect it. You can remove the bulbs too. Most of the problems with bottom freezer are the door, they seem to not get closed properly and they get heavily frosted, once frosted they seem not to close correctly and cause the lights to remain on.
I would look for the problem with the door closing or the door switch failing.

Hello, actually my Maytag refrigerator is 22 cu ft. bottom -mount freezer. I'm pretty sure my freezer is the frost less kind but it has started getting frost and almost snow in it. I was just wondering...


Hello
Any freezer will accumulate frost on walls etc, eventually.Mostly in the summer when there's more moist air and door openings. The fan is supposed draw all moisture to the evaporator coils so you won[t get the frost , So if it is excessive check to make sure refridgerator compartment is keeping cold.If it seems warm to you,you probably have defrost issues.
If ok ,then check door gaskets for air leaks ,(excess moist air gets in).Or excess food ,especially at bottom might block some air flow.

regards

Kenmore bottom freezer refrigerator


This sounds like the Maytag bottom mount that has a High Voltage Control Board problem. Does this have the freezer/fridge temp. display/controls on the left hand fridge door? Whats the model number and on the manufacture tag does it something on it like Code:0304 maybe? Let me know I may have an answer I do work on these for a living.
