THE PROBLEM IS WITH THE AUTO DEFROST (IF THE FEATURE IS AVAILABLE) OR ELSE YOU HAVE TO MANUALLY DEFROST IT REGULARLY

SOURCE: Refrig not cooling Freezer has frost build up on coils

Frost on the coils won't allow air to pass to the fresh food section, thus resulting in insufficient cooling. To eliminate this problem, you will have to get a new adaptive defrost timer ( small board ), and a defrost heater assembly.

SOURCE: Fan running but neither refrig or freezer is getting cold.

Your refrigerator may be stuck in defrost cycle. I know it has a defrost timer part number 215846602 Most times they are located inside the fresh food compartment behind the control panel. Sometimes below fridge and behind kick plate. The thermostat could be defective also. You can check that by unplugging the refrigerator remove cover and checking continuity between the two male connections located on the rear side of thermostat control turned as cold as you can turn it. Or you can join the two wires together and plug refrigerator back in to see if compressor comes on. When you find the defrost time turn clockwise slowly until the refrigerator starts. If these don't work let me know and we will do some more test. Sea Breeze

There should not be any water in the freezer compartment other thatn in the ice maker. Closely look for the source of the leak - probably need to tighten a fitting.

My Epic Z front load is leaking water . It looks like the gray rubber on the door is the cause. The machine is only 18 months old


In the front on the bottom of the gray seal is two drain holes, make sure there is not an obstruction in these drain holes such as a small sock .

Hi,

All the cooling coils for this model are in the freezer section. There is a fan down there behind the back wall on the top. This fan directs air up to the fresh food section.

Check the temperature of the freezer you can do this by inspecting the ice cream, if the ice cream is soft you are above 5 degrees F. If you have a good cold freezer then the problem is with air flow, the evaporator fan that I spoke of could be bad).

If your freezer temperature is not as cold as it should be you may have a defrost problem, look for any signs of frost build up on the back wall of the freezer section, if you see frost you will most likely need to put in a new control.

If the freezer temperature is warmer than normal and you do not have frost you may have a sealed system leak, this will require a technician for sure.

Test the gasket by closing the door on a dollar bill. If you can pull the dollar out easily then the gasket is not sealing. If the gasket is OK then the auto defrost function may be not operating. High humidity and opening the door frequently can also cause some frost build-up.

Food is freezing in the bottom drawer of my Maytag side by side


check to make sure the slide controls for teh bottom drawer is set to vegtables also it is not uncommon for the temps in the bottom drawer of your refrig to drop down to freezing if you have infrequent door openings. you may also try setting the refrig temperature to a warmer setting as well. thx Peyton

that is not a maytag model number. the model number will be in the refrig section (usually) and (usually in the uper left side) look up and to the left. find that and i will help no problem. but i am thinking you have a model that is about 12 to 18 years old that model is easy to do but you need to take the doors off first, then the center trim comes out, (it has screws some are used with door hinges) and the whole bottom slides out to you
