Question about Maytag MFD2560HES Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

Right Hand door swings open too fast

If I have the right hand door beyonf the "half-way" point it will open all of the way with a "crash" The left hand door seems to be "dampered" in some way. The level side-to-side and front-to-back seem ok.

On the bottom of the door there is a part called a door closure kit.It operates like a cam. There are high and low points on the part that aid in the opening and closing of the doors. Do-it yourselfer project.

We have a Hotpoint Side by side- Freezer is working but the Refrigerator is not getting cold - What to do??


There is a couple of things that could be going on here.

1. Open you freezer door look at the back panel and see if it is covered in ice. If it is you most likely have a defrost issue. If this is the case the Evap coil becomes covered in ice to the point it does not allow any air flow.

2. Open freezer door and with one hand push in the door switch so the light goes off. Listen and feel to see if the Evap fan motor is running. If it is not running we could have a bad fan or a bad board.

3. Open you fridge door, in the top left portion of the should be a damper assy. put your hand in front of this damper and fee for cold air and some air movement.

After you have done these three things I walk you a little further in solving your proble,

Water freezing


Hi,

Freezing happens when damper door breaks leaving the unit with no control over the very cold air entering fresh food compartment from the freezer.
The damper door (DIFFUSER) is located at the very top left of your refrigerator section in back. It has a motorized door that opens and close's and it may be stuck open. More than likely it is broken and needs to be replaced.

Replace damper door , with new damper door kit WR17X11508

http://www.repairclinic.com/referral.asp?R=1265&N=1055112.

To verify the damper door is broken , remove the light shield and rear light bulb from the top of the refrigerator. Enter the factory diagnostic mode by pushing all four temperature control buttons at the same time. Perform damper motor test (FZ 1 , FF 0). Press any other button i.e. Custom cool or filter reset to start damper test cycle. Shine flashlight through right hand side opening of light assembly to view movement of damper door. To exit test mode (FZ 1 , FF 6). lf damper door assembly needs to be replaced , pull top two shelves out 2 ". Pull rear tower assembly slightly forward with both hands, move to the left and the right to expose the two screws that secure the duct assembly , also remove both screws that secure the duct to the ceiling. Replace with new damper motor assembly WR17X11508

I have the same problem. Looking through the freezer section using a mirror, I can see the damper door. I opened it with a hanger wire. It does seem to be behind the styrofoam in the fridge section.

How does the door handle even know if it is in a right or left handled door?
The handle should retract the latch with a quarter turn clockwise OR counterclockwise, so it should make no difference at all.
The only thing that is right or left handed is the direction the latch bevel points, so that it will retract when you push the door shut.
And the latch has nothing to do with the handle.

Are these circular door knobs, or is this a handle that has to then point at the hinges?
Because it seems to me that if the direction the handle points is the problem, you simply put them on the wrong side of the door.

Tag Carrera Twin time , second hour hand is not staying at time


The second time zone hand is running on a 24 hour face (right hand half of face is morning, left hand half of face is afternoon/evening) so all you need do is multiply what it points at by two. As an example, if your second time zone hand is pointing to the right (3 o'clock) then it represents 6am and if it is pointing to the left (9 o'clock) then it represents 6pm [9 x 2 = 18:00]

Fresh food side freezing


the air damper is stuck open or tempature control is bad. look thru the vents(use a mirror) on the left rear(top side) of the fresh food compartment (right hand door) to see if the air damper is open/closed. i am sure it will be open since your freezing food in the ref section. if it is open ,watching with your mirror turn ref (fresh food) control off. the air dmper should close, if not damper could be stuck(ice build up,piece of foam,ect) if you can determine damper door is free, then best thing to do is replace controlassy.(120.00 or so) good luck

Freezer is very cold and refrig is cool


Hi. As long as the evaporator motor is working its one of the two as you mentioned. If the compressor and evaporator fan is running and the refrigerator door has been open, with the freezer door closed, reach into the back left top where the diffuser is located and put your hand in front of it and see if any air is coming out. You should feel a moderate breeze. If not, open the freezer door with your hand in front of the diffuser and if the air comes out good now, the return air is blocked (normally ice build up). If no air is felt, the damper is most likely bad. Use a mirror and see if the damper is closed or frosted up. This can happen from the refrigerator or freezer door being left open for some time.If you have a mechanical damper, make sure it is set in the middle. You want more air to the refrigerator section. Email me on ebay, user name themackshack if you need parts! Good luck, Mack
