Question about Maytag 25.6 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Thru-the-Door Ice and Water - White

1 Answer

My Maytag 2454GR side-by-side refrigerator is not cooling. The freezer went out first and then the fridge and was like for a couple of days. Then last night it started making ice again. But this morning I noticed a puddle of water. I opened the freezer and the ice was starting to melt again just like it did the first time. What could be causing this problem?

SOURCE: Fridge and freezer not cooling

When the refrigerator turns on, do you hear anything in the refrigerant lines? Does the compressor turn on? or does it just hum?

If the compressor is running, it lost refrigerant charge. They were not made to be serviced and lack service valves.

If there is just a loud hum, the compressor may be siezed, the start/run capacitor may have failed. or the magnetic starter failed.

A service call is a fair portion of a replacement not counting the parts.

SOURCE: Water on floor from freezer side of Maytag side by side unit.

Yes I just had that happen to me. An appliance guy came over for my stove and I asked him if he could tell me why I wake up everyday to a puddle. He told me to take the baskets out unscrew the three screws and pull the panel off, then pour some hot water in it and use a turkey baster to blast the drain hole with. It worked. Sears repair man couldn't even figure that out when it was under warranty. Took me 15 minutes. Good Luck

you have a defrost problem, could be bad adaptive defrost board,t-stat heater,when you open freezer door listen for fan if fan is blowing check the t-stat,look at it and see if it has a buldge on it,sometime you can see this and tell it's bad,you'll need a meter to read out the heater and other parts to see whats bad,might be a good idea to call a tech to do this,when you find problem you have to melt everything out again

. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Remove the cardboard backing from the back bottom to access the compressor area.
