Question about Maytag MTB2656G Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Two year old Maytag Fridge not cooling

Model MTB2656GE is not cooling. 2years old. light inside comes on so power is to the unit. Fans inside not coming on. Stuck in a defrost cycle? Don't know how to unstick it. Seems too new to have a major component go out. Are there fuses somewhere that could be out? Could there be a thermostat problem? Thanks for your time!

Pull the power plug for 15 minutes, then plug back in...same problem? tried adjusting temperature control knob (thermostat)? if yes to both questions, freon has escaped out of loop or faulty thermostat. Attempt force start of compressor with jumper clips: pull the power plug then find the two wires into motor and apply 120 VAC from jumper clips. If it spins, then faulty thermostat.

MY Frigidaire Refrigerator is 2 years old, the Refrigerator is not cold, but the freezer is working fine, what is common fix?

Most will tell you the freon is bad. but i have found in most cases the freezer works but fridge doesnt.. I have found the solution to be a bad cooling fan on the fridge it self. if the fan is not cooling the fridge will not cool. You could pull the fridge out and see if you can see the fan turn it on hi and when the fridge kicks in see if the fan or fans are working.. dust can cause them to slow or stop.

Replace compressor or buy new fridge

Check all else before condemning the compressor. Condenser clean, fans working, defrosted etc. Compressor change is expensive and the unit may be beyond economic repair if over a couple of years old. See how much a new one is before calling out service.

My refrigerator has a smell that it never had almost like plastic.it is about 10 years old

the smell on your fridge sounds to me like its leaking.inside your fridge is surrounded by a type of gas that helps to keep your foods cool.once the side walls of the fridge have been penatrated the gas leaks out. in my experiance the unit is unreparable and fit for the bin

I have a Samsung fridge model no. RS2556sh. We lost power and when the power came back on the fridge did not. The LED is blinking in the top right corner and the lights or on inside the fridge but not cooling in either side. It doesn't sound like the compresser or any of the fans are coming on. So, what's wrong?

Refrigerator not getting cold - freezer still pretty cold - perhaps not all the way [email protected]

Defrost system problem; Check back wall of freezer for frost buildup which indicates the defrost problem.
