    I have the same problem. Unplugging does not work as I left mine unplugged overnight with no result. My solution is that there be a class action lawsuit against maytag as there seems to be a common problem with this fridge and no resolution or support from them.

  • ANTI Maytag Sep 25, 2008

    ON 9/24/08, i had the same issue. Lights on, but no temperature numbers, just dashes, with no adjustability. Maytag must be smarter than this! Over 300 dollars in groceries are now gone, and no help from Maytag. I am pissed off.

Have you tried unplugging the fridge and then replugging it in? Sometimes a power down/power up cycle will clear errors and get it started again...

Fridge and freezer stopped working but fridge light still on should the orange switch by the light be on or off don't know if that is the defrost button


Sounds like a motherboard or defrost control board. Can you tell me the model number found inside the fresh food compartment or around fresh food section door frame, Without the model number it is hard to guess what the switch is that you are asking about, Thanks Sea Breeze

Well i have a problem the fridge is working 100% but our freezer is not working right it is cold at bottom half but it is not working at top half like i put ice thing in it the water fast freeze tomoro...


If I read the manual right the red light indicator your seeing is the exlamation point above the fast freeze button. This is telling you that the freezer compartment temp is to high.

There can be multiple reasons for this:
1. Evaporator fan not running (Check fan by depressing door closed plunger for the light switch) The fan should be on and light off.

2. An unseen block of ice over the evaporator coils due to an automatic defrosting probelm. If you can determine that there really is ice on the evaporator coils, perform the manual defrost procedures I described in my initial response. If after doing this manual defrost things return to normal for a few days and then you see the high temp indicator again there is for sure and automatic defrosting problem.

3. Automatic Defrost Problem (Causes)
a. Defrost control failure
b. Defrost control heating element failure
c. Temp sensor failure or Bi-metal 60 Deg F thermostat failure

4. Condenser fan not running in the borrom rear of the unit. (Check to see that the fan is running by removing the fiberboard rear cover.)

5. Condenser coils blocked with lint (Check the coils when you inspect the condensor fan for operation.) Clean both the coils and the fan.

6. Thermistor failure (measures temp and has a resistive output) in the freezer.

7. Compressor not running (Causes)
a. PTC relay
b. Run capacitor
c. Conpressor failure

8. Compressor running but not cooling
Check to see that one of the copper lines line is hot to the touch. If it is not hot the causes can be low freon level, clogged freon drier, damaged capillary tube.

These are all the things that can cause your current symptom.

The freezer on my Amana ARB1917CB keeps frosting over; the fridge no longer cools. The advice given on most forums for this siutation is to "test the defrost timer by turning the screw with a screwdriver,"...


Exploded parts diagram for your fridge:

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5167592
I understand your frustration. Below are some diagrams and troublshooting aids. If you look at the exploded parts diagram link and select the Wiring Information page, you'll see the defrost timer is on the FF harness, which is the "Fresh Food" compartment.

Next, click in the "Controls" page. Item #12 is the defrost timer. It looks like it is in light assembly / cover in the fresh food compartment as it has 2 light bulbs shown - and the freezer has only 1.

Fridge and freezer not cooling down


It seems it's the defrost sensor (freezer side). Waiting for it to come, ordered this morning. It appears to be a defrost fault, having read on the web it seems you can check the defrost sensor with a meter across whilst holding the actual sensor in your hand tightly to see if the resistance changes, anyway it didn't. Will post when the new one comes and I change it.

Control board has gone bad....

What happens is the defrost is controlled electronically from a circuit board, when this goes bad, the freezer quits defrosting, and freezes the fans that circulate air through the fridge side of things.

To check this, unplug the entire fridge, leave the freezer open, wait for it to defrost a bit, if this causes the fridge to start cooling again when you plug it back in, then its the defrost. You should also see ice crystals on the back of the freezer just under the icemaker.

FREEZER WORKING - FRIDGE NOT WORKING


Ok, got it sussed! [well here's what I did anyway]...

Quite simply, I turned off the fridge-freezer at the mains overnight and in the morning, broke and chucked out the ice chunks that had lined up in the bottom of the freezer section and then turned it back on. I returned that night to see that it was working fine again! Hallelujah, I got my fridge back!!

So it seems that all it needed was a good long defrost, so far so good! I hope this solves your problem.
