Suction that normally keeps the door closed has failed
For model number MQF2056TEW00
PartSelect logo
Hi Alan, Thank you for your question. If the door is no longer sealing correctly it may be dirty. Try giving it a good cleaning to see if this resolves the issue. If the gasket is warped or gapped remove it and then reattach it. Also, make sure that the refrigerator is level and make sure that the hinges on the door are tightened. If there are too many items in the door bins, this may prevent the door from closing. Remove some of the items to see if this resolves the issue. If you have tried this and the door is still not sealing, you may need to replace either the door, the hinges or the gasket. If you have any questions, please let us know. We are open 7 days a week. We look forward to hearing from you!

The freezer is not emitting cold air. The whole freezer thawed out! What could be the problem?
For model number MQF2056TEW00
PartSelect logo
Hi Terry, thank you for reaching out. First, make sure the vents on the back of the freezer compartment are not blocked as the vents have to be clear for cold air to circulate. If the issue persists, you may need to check the following parts: defrost thermostat, part number PS11738201, defrost timer, part number PS11740630, evaporator fan motor, part number PS11740626, and evaporator fan blade, part number PS11754833. We hope this sorts out your problem!

Lights inside refrigerator not working
I used a flat-head screwdriver to pop out the old light rocker switch. Then, I unplugged the wires, plugged them into the new light rocker switch, and then popped the new switch into the hole. That's it! Lights began working again.

Froze over fan motor burnt out
Removed shelves from inside freezer then removed 4 screws holding cover panel. Pulled panel up and slightly pulled forward to remove. Removed wiring connections then removed two screws that held the motor & fan assembly. Removed the support bracket from the old motor and installed same on the support bracket. Reversed removal procedures for installation. Cover panel is a little bit of a problem when trying to reinstall. Put in panel as high as you can and then slide down. You must then exert a little pressure on the bottom portion to get it to seat correctly. Install four remaing screws and you are done. I had this repaired previously by a professional repairman and noticed from the pictures you folks provided that he had installed the screws on the support bracket incorrectly. That was the reason for the fan blade to rip apart.

Light Would Not Go On In The Refrigerator
First I removed the old lightbulb from the socket and replaced it with a new one to confirm that the bulb was not the problem. I then pryed the socket out with a flat-head screwdriver. I could tell that the socket was anchored in its hole with clips so it was relatively easy to pry it out. Once the socket was out, I disconnected the lead wires and ordered a replacement socket kit from Partselect. When the new one arrived, I reconnected the lead wires to it, snapped it back into its hole, screwed in a new lightbulb, and presto!! The light was back on with no further problem. Thank you, Partselect!! A $15.00 part saved me what probably would have been at least a $100. service call and heaven knows what the technician would have told me I needed!!!
