Hello, Our 18-year-old Maytag refrigerator quit cooling the other day. The unit still runs, but the fridge and freezer are not cold at all. This is a second fridge (we keep it in our garage) so it isn't a rush situation. It's worked well for us and still looks great, so if we can replace a part and fix it, we'd like to go that route. Any suggestions on what it might need to get it to freezing and chilling again would be appreciated!

Hi Liza, thank you for contacting us. Based on our understanding of the issue, we would recommend checking the thermistor, part number PS2003772, to fix the issue. We hope this helps!

When the refrigerator starts getting warmer, I have to open the freezer and get a hairdryer and melt the ice behind the vents in the back of the freezer and then it works again. What part do I need to make this work better?

Hello Renee, thank you for asking. To fix the issue, you may need to check the compressor start relay and capacitor, part number PS8746522. The capacitor helps the compressor kick on and off while maintaining a constant temperature to keep things frozen in your freezer. The start relay boosts the compressor and then shuts off as soon as the motor gets up to speed. We hope this helps, good luck with this repair!

The freezer is working (normal Temp.) but the refrigerator part does not cool
For model number MFD2560HES

Hello Ralf, thank you for your question. The evaporator fan PS2004031 may have stopped working. Or, there may be an issue with the Thermistor PS2003772. You can test the Thermistor to see if it is defective. The resistance of the thermistor in the unit should be 2.7K ohms at 77 degrees. We hope this helps.

Icemaker producing few or no cubes and often leaving "kling-ons" on ice tray
Interior surface of ice tray felt rough & flaky (coating deteriorated) so cubes would not release.
Unplug appliance.
Remove timer cover by hand pressure @ edge.
Remove single attachment screw & bracket at lower front of icemaker.
Disconnect wiring harness from socket @ rear of compartment.
Tricky part was determining what type of connection held the other two attachment points along the long edge of the icemaker. I did not have repair manual or useful drawing but looked @ PartsDirect pic of side brackets & used a small mirror to confirm that mine were also some sort of "snap in" attachment.
Remove icemaker unit by pushing upward and outward on the unit. I takes a good bit of pressure and will pop loose, but be careful not to break attachment bracket from freezer wall.
Scavenge shut off bar and wiring harness from old icemaker once you have it out & attach to new one before installing it back in freezer.
Again, you might find a mirror useful to align those pesky snap-in brackets with the new unit.
Since you probably kept your freezer running while waiting for the part, the plastic snap-ins will be cold and brittle. I warmed them up first by applying a dampened cloth heated in the microwave to make them a little more pliable.
A good push of the new unit towards the snap-ins along with some upward force will get it stable.
Reattach the metal screw in bracket & connect the wiring harness to rear plug... and don't forget to plug the whole thing back in.
It will take awhile for the first batch of cubes dump as the timer may need to cycle completely around to get to the fill cycle... be patient.
Dump the first couple of batches of cubes just to make sure you're free of any residue.
