Maytag MBF2256HES fridge not cold - Refrigerators

  • Anonymous May 04, 2009

    For some weeks the fridge made some noises occasionally got louder and louder until one day we really started thinking something was wrong. Within a few days, the freezer became warm and so did the rest.


    Looks like we'll loose all of our food. The soonest we can get it serviced is 4 days.

You can confirm this if you touch the condenser and after 1 hour you had switch it on, then the temperature of condenser should be about 130-140 F. If it is less than 120 F then you had a Freon leak.

Loss of the refrigerant charge will also cause the compressor to overheat. It is the cool return gas coming back to the compressor that helps to keep it from overheating.
There are also many other things that can go wrong with your fridge and I have not come close to exhausting the possibilities here. I have just touched on the most common problems in a very basic way.
There are some basic trouble shooting things that can be done very easily. Most problems are above out of the range of comfort for many homeowners and professional help should be consulted before any attempt is made at repairs. Remember also, that the release of refrigerant gases into the atmosphere is a federal offense in the US. Proper care must always be taken to minimize the release of any gases. A license is also required to handle refrigerants. Make sure that the professional you call has the proper certifications to handle refrigerants properly

I have a maytag fridge (freezer on bottom) the fridge is not very cold. freezer has started to get ice near the door opening in the last week.


if you see ice near the door the door muat not be closing all the way or the gasket could be ripped,ice will form where warm and cold air are mixing together,did you remove any of the shelves or baskets in the freezer or in the fridge?i've seen people clean out the fridge and the shelves weren't put back in correctly keeping the door open,check that or food packages that might be hitting the door,when the warm air gets in it usually freezes the air ducts,this is why the fridge is warm,all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,the evap fan blows the cold air from the freezer into the fridge section and then it returns through other air ducts so if warm air is getting in it will freeze up the air ducts,you can try shutting down the machine or unplug it,remove the food from the freezer and with a hair dryer hit the back inside wall of the freezer,blow the air up into the vent holes in the back wall,if you see water dripping down through the slots you have ice up in there,keep blowing the hot air up into the holes until you don't see any more water dripping,if you can remove the ice maker and remove the back inside wall of the freezer would be better.first check the freezer back wall to see if there's any frost or like snow on it,if so you could have a defrost problem,bad jazz board,this is the computer board that's behind your digital controls in the fridge section,bad defrost thermostat or heater,also do you mean the floor of the freezer has ice on it,you could have a blocked drain in the freezer.write back with more info and let me know what you find and hopefully i can help you better.

Maytag wide by side MZD2667HEW freezer works fridge does'nt


Was it the damper control you replaced and it's still not adjusting the vent(damper)? And is the cold air from the freezer being blown through the vent by the fan in the freezer.
The circuit board mainly controls the defrost timing and the fans. I don't know that it would solve your problem.
