    The inside fan and the compeser fan are both running, The lowest coils are cool but not cold.

    Yes I pulled the cover. There is not any ice. That is what I was checking for. I do not have a meter. If I had to I could buy one if the repair would be something I could fix.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post I understand you have a problem with a Maytag SxS fridge, specifically the freezer. Can you tell if the compressor is operating or any fan motors ?.

I know many of the Maytag fridges had start device failures causing the entire unit to not cool....but, let me know anything else you can and we can go forward from here. I'll watch for your reply. Thank you for visiting FixYa for your inquiry.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

    Thank you for the reply.



    To address your last post..."The inside fan and the compressor fan are both running, The lowest coils are cool but not cold"...would this mean you've got the cover off the evaporator in the freezer so you can see the freezer/evaporator coils ?



    If this is the case, more importantly than if the coils are cool, do you see any frost pattern at all, or just a tiny clump of ice at the top of the coils ?



    Do you have in your possession (or the ability to get) a multi-meter/voltmeter ? A device like an ammeter to measure current would be best, but any resistance/voltasge metering debvice will do in a pinch.



    Pardon the twenty questions, but they are relevant to diagnosing your fridge correctly. I'd like to know you can successfully check the compressor is getting power or if indeed it is operating.



    Thanks,



    Macmarkus :)

    O.K.



    no need to rush out and buy a meter just yet, here's what I'd try. Pull the fridge out and remove the panel covering the compressor if you haven't already and feel if the compressor is hot/warm or not at all.



    You may actually be able to tell if it is running by this method as well. **Careful, you'll need to this with the unit plugged in and operating**. Sometimes the compreessor can get really hot from just trying to start indicating it is seized or the start device (PTC) has failed.



    If it is really hot and not operating you'll need a meter to ohm (measure the winding resistance) the windings.



    If it is running yet not cooling, unplug the unit while it is operating, wait 30 seconds and plug it back in...if the system has gas in it or the compressor valves are ok it shouldn't start after 30 seconds off. It should take at least couple of minutes for the pressure in the system to equalize. If it starts right away, there is a serious problem either way...no gas or mechanical.



    Again I'll await your response for the result.



    Macmarkus :)

Hello, My name Zoltan, and I have a Maytag


Your defrost element has failed in the freezer, ice has built up in the freezer cooling cores and air cant pass through them to the fridge, you need to defrost the unit totally and replace the elements, they are at the inside rear, behind the plate, also check your internal fan is running in the freezer, could be another fault.

My Maytag MF12568AES Refrigerator is not cooling. May be I need to reset the computer.


This happens to my Maytag like clockwork every summer. The freezer works fine but the refrigerator stops cooling. The first time this happened, it was the fault of the small plastic DC fan that sends cooling from the freezer compartment to the refrigerator section. A technician replaced the DC plastic with an AC metal fan he guaranteed would last the life of the refrigerator. He blamed govt energy standards as the reason Maytag uses the cheap DC plastic fan in the first place. Problem solved. One year later, same issue with no cooling in the refrigerator, freezer fine. Again today, nearly one year to the day! SOLUTION? Trip the circuit breaker or unplug the refrigerator for a minimum of 5 minutes. A reboot now fixes the problem every time. Who would have thought you'd ever have to REBOOT your refrigerator?

Refrigerator not cooling but freezer is


Something has stopped the cold air being ducted from freezer side to refrigerator side of things. Possibly duct blocked due to ice build up, evaporator not self defrosting etc. Turn unit off for a few days till it melts and then turn back on. If it was because a door has been left slightly open you will be ok. If for any other reason you will want to have it serviced in the next week or so.
