is it frozen up? do you have any air flow thru the air tunnel from the freeze to the fridge? Check your air flow with the door switch pushed in. also check to see if the damper door opens... 1) if it is iced up you have a defrost problem. most likely a defrost timer. Turn off or unplug untill all the ice has melted off the evaporator back of the freezer..plug back in and it will work fine untill the ice builds up again. if this work you do have a defrost problem.. if not let me know and we can go deeper...

Frig requires either compressor relay or the compressor itself...should have some warranty still, so call an authorized servicer. Ray

SOURCE: freezer cold, fridge warm

The small cooling fan in the freezer compartment that sends chilled air to the food side is defective and needs replacement.  Sometimes that are only frozen stuck.

When you receive advice from this website you have to understand that without the item in front of us, we are only able to provide "a best guess" as to what the problem might be based on you description of the defect.  If you haven't described a clear and precise description of the defect you decrease the chances of an accurate reply.  Thank you.

SOURCE: Maytag refrigerator isn't cooling

Hi ****, Based on the discription you've provided it sounds like either a faulty start relay or the compressor is seized. If you have a multi- meter you can check the compressor to see if the windings are ok. Unplug the fridge. Remove the panel at the back down at the bottom. This should gain you access to the compressor. On the side of the comp. will be the start relay/overload assembly. Pull off the relay & overload and you'll see 3 pins in the form of a triangle. With a meter measure between any 2 pins at one time, going between each pin with one remaining on a "common" pin. You'll want 3 measurement's, similar to this example- 6ohms, 3ohms, and 9ohms. On some meters you may simply get a reading of "0" ohms, as long as the needle moves off of "infinity" which would indicate an "open" winding=not good ! If following that, the readings are good, purchase a hard start kit. Part # HS410 also known as a 3in1 starter kit. This will start it if it's not seized also known as a "locked rotor".. You can find them at most brick & mortar appliance parts locations or on-line vendors. The package contains info on how to connect it. If that doesn't yield any results moving forward, let me know we'll go from there. **I suggest you phone Whirlpool customer support first though ( they own Maytag ) as they recently had a massive recall regarding the starting device of many compressor's and you may find your's to be included therefore have it repaired at no cost.** they will know by your model and serial number or if that isn't clear the number on the compressor. Good Luck Thanks for visiting "fixya", please take a second to rate my solution and leave a comment/testimony to it's helpfulness. macmarkus :)

MAYTAG MODEL mf12568aew IS MAKING A LOUD BUZZING NOISE AFTER A POWER OUTAGE


That is most likely the start capacitor that turns on the compressor / motor. It could be the run capacitor if the fridge seems to be running. Many devices appliance require capacitors to turn over motors - A/C, Pool motor etc. This is relatively a cheap fix - but could damage the control board as well.

I have a whirlpool gold fridge and its flashing the po code why and how do I make it stop


PO stands for Power Outage. The fridge lost power for some reason. On my fridge I just hit "acknowledge" and it goes away. I don't own a whirlpool. Here's a page that lists different instructions for multiple different fridges in order to reset everything and turn off the PO light. http://removeandreplace.com/2016/02/02/refrigerator-display-panel-is-blank-not-working-how-to-reset/

Maytag frig model no mfi2569vem2 control panel not lit up and not coolong or freezing. light inside is on but dont here the motor running. we did have a power outage when issue occured


Sounds like the power outage took out your high voltage control board. This control board is located on the back of the fridge. Roll the fridge out of its position so you can get behind it. Once you have pulled out the fridge you will need to UNPLUG it. There will be a couple 1/4" screws securing the metal cover to the back left side of the fridge (if you are facing the back of it). Remove these screws to find another plastic cover which will need to be removed. This control board controls the fans and the compressor. You can take the control board out and look for a burn mark or a blown soldered fuse. According to your model number the control board part number is W10310240.

Our fridge compressor won't run after a power outage, can it be reset?


compressors use a small start / run capacitor to start the compressor
modern fridges do not like spikes from power outages and many power boards and electronic components fail because of this and I am inclined top use a surge protector before the fridge cord plug
I went google and typed in --fault code 88-88 for samsung fridge model rf26aewp and the first site up is error codes /messages/ blinking
the site is support-us.samsung>popup>iframe
there is a detailed answer there with a list of fault codes as well and what they indicate
there are other sites that also refer to the fault that you have

Why did the control panel go dark on my Maytag side by side refrigerator for a couple of hours?


Ron,
You're right to be concerned but I'd just keep an eye on it for the time being - if it ain't broke, don't fix it!! It's entirely possible that it's throwing a hissy fit after the power outages and it just needs peace and quiet so it can settle down!

After recent power outages and freezing temperatures in our vacation home the refrigerator portion of our refrigerator stopped cooling, but the freezer still works. Our refrigerator is a 4 year old...


Sounds like one of two problems. Either the fan motor that pushes the cold air from the freezer is not turning (Burned out) or stuck with ice because of an incomplete defrost of frost. Check to make sure the fan is running (any time the fridge is running) if not remove the panel in the freezer and see if there is abuild up of frost or ice around the fan. If you are not comfortable with removing the panel let it defrost with unit unplugged for a 24 hrs with the doors open and try again.

Describe your Kenmore 53652 / 53654 / 53659 Side by Side Refrigerator Unit is not cooling. Stopped working after power outage


Kenmore Coldspot 106.53652300
I just fixed my neighbors fridge that suffered from a power surge. She explained that she smelt a burning smell in the kitchen and the next day the fridge and freezer were not cold. Of course she did not share the burnt smell part until after I discovered the starter relay and the capacitor were burnt on the compressor. She purchased the new starter kit and capacitor from a local supply company and while installing them I discovered the compressor fan was not running which also meant the compressor was not getting any power. I removed the screws that held the control panel on the fridge side (right side) and inspected the circuit board which I discovered a burnt trace on the board for the compressor control relay. I fixed the board by soldering a piece of solid core wire across it and it works great!
Make sure you shop around for your parts. The BIG local supplier here in Tulsa wanted $65 for the starter kit and $65 for the capacitor. We shopped around and found another supplier in Tulsa that sold them for $25 each and they were FSP parts!

My model rs2555sl samsung fridge does not start up after power outage.


Samsung RS2555Sl suddenly stoped working once the power is switched off, If switched on again, only the Ice making sensor light flickers. If both Pwercool and power freeze buttons are pressed for 12 seconds it stars and running normally. Will it automatically start working if I change the Ice making sensor?
