How to fix a Maytag side-by-side MZD2768GE refrigerator that's freezing food in the beer compartment

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Refrigerator Repair 24 June 2011 · 980 views

... IS THIS THE SAME PROBLEM AS GE AND THEIR DAMPER MOTORS?



Yes. There's a tech bulletin out on this. You need to replace the autodamper assembly.

One year warranty on the part and you can return it for a refund if it doesn't fix the problem.
