Maytag Refrigerators - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

The most likely cause is the defrost timer. It is supposed to defrost every 24 hours. The same thing happened to my GE. The evaporator at the back of the freezer was a solid block of ice and it was blocking the cooling vent to the fridge.

It looks like you have a defrost problem. It could be blocked air vents but I think there is a problem with either the drfrost heater or defrost thermostat. It cound be the defrst timer or control but i would check the heater and defrost thermostat first.

Vhotho, Maytag put out a service bullitin regarding this problem. This of course is for the model that is posted. The fix is to install a new right side center hinge and door stop limiting the opening to 135 degrees. They must of redesigned it. I can give you the part numbers. Black and stainless the hinge is 67006443 and the stop is 67006276. For white the hinge is 67006379 and the stop is 67006278. This bullitin came out in Feb of 2006. TDR-0057a-b. back.

The handle screws probably are hidden behind the plastic door liner which would have to be removed to gain access.

Spray it with kitchen cleaner. Scrub it with a Scotchbrite pan scourer to remove oxidisation. Spray it again, rub, rinse, and dry. Rub Vaseline on it. It will probably outlast you. If it did fail, the copper tube will pit and let the refrigerant gas leak out slowly until one day you find it isn't cooling. A refrigeration engineer could replace the pipe and re-gas it, but at 18 years old, it would be time to treat yourself to a new one. Whoever did the soldering didn't wipe off the flux, which is acidic.

Firstly open the back of the refrigerator's back and check the refrigerator evaporator to excess the fan if there is fan cover present remove it with the screwdrivers. Then unplug the fan from the refrigerator with the help of tools like screwdrivers, and 1 thing to keep in mind to remove all the connections before removing.

I seem to be having the same issue with a Maytag refrigerator model M1TXEGMYS01. I would like to thoroughly clean all shelves of this new-to-is refrigerator but I can’t seem to figure out how to remove the glass from the plastic housing. I was able to take the end and central brackets off (that hold the drawers) but I can’t figure the rest of it out... and the manual I looked up didn’t provide any information on separating the housing either. Please see pic attached. Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately this is not an issue that can just be reset. No real troubleshooting is needed based on your symptoms . unfortunately this is a well known problem for this particular refrigerator and you won't see any signs of failure but the problem is the high voltage control board on the back of the refrigerator behind the 8? x 8? access panel. if you pull the refrigerator out, there is a panel on the back and if you remove it that board behind that panel test it but most likely needs to be replaced.
