Common Issues with Maytag Fridges
Both the fridge and freezer compartments don't seem to be cooling,
- The fridge is quiet, but the light is still on. When the fridge or freezer door is opened, the unit starts working.
Solution: In most cases, this issue is related to the mainboard, which only activates normal operation when the doors are opened. To resolve it, the mainboard needs to be repaired or replaced.
- There's a periodic humming sound followed by a click every few minutes. The fridge and freezer lights remain on.
- The most common cause of the Maytag refrigerator tripping the safety switch is a faulty heating element in the freezer. It needs replacement for correct operation.
- A faulty compressor is the second most common issue leading to safety switch trips. If the compressor is the problem, it should be replaced.
- The termination thermostat, inline with the defrost heater, could be the third most common issue. This component also needs replacement.
The refrigerator compartment isn't cooling as it should, or not at all, but the freezer seems fine.
Alternatively, the bottom half of the freezer is working, but the top half is thawing, and there's noticeable ice/frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer's bottom section.
- The most likely cause of this symptom is a faulty heating element that needs replacement. Additionally, the freezer coil should be defrosted, and all ducts connecting the freezer and fridge need to be unblocked.
- If the termination thermostat has failed, it should be replaced. Similar to the first solution, this requires defrosting the freezer coil and unblocking the ducts connecting the two compartments.
The refrigerator compartment appears to be cooling adequately, but the freezer compartment isn't cold enough, and products are slowly thawing.
- The most common reason for this issue is a gas leak within the refrigerator system. Corrosion may have caused a copper line to crack or fracture, allowing refrigerant to escape slowly. This issue can be observed when only a small section of the evaporator coil inside the freezer is iced or frosted over. The solution involves locating the gas leak, welding or replacing the damaged copper or steel line, and recharging the system with refrigerant.
- The second most common issue is a system blockage, which presents similar symptoms to a gas leak. To address this, both the filter dryer and the valving system (typically a capillary copper tube) need replacement, followed by recharging with refrigerant.
We’ve seen this before - this is due to failure of a defrosting component inside the freezer compartment - and something we can generally repair on the spot.
