#325920 maytag side by side refrigerator mzd2766gew does not cool

Posted by vee8power on Yesterday, 11:40 AM

If you have a defrost problem, then it might be the ADC. Check out the "warm refrigerator troubleshooting flowchart" at the top of the kitchen forum and it will narrow down the problem. Let us know what you find.

The evaporator and evaporator fan are behind the rear wall of the freezer. The condenser and its fan are outside the unit in the back, right next to the compressor. We need to get a look at the evaporator;

Maytag asked what the frost looks like there.

#325519 Ge Refrigerator Temperature Fluctuates!

I would say the biggest and first concern is for the sealed system, now that it's been tapped.

Yes, it will. Look here:

Look carefully for a broken wire to the capacitor.

#323819 Friggidaire FRS26F5AW5 - Water Line Discoloured?

Posted by vee8power on 06 July 2015 - 06:48 AM

I thought that tube was that color to match the tan part of the water valve where it's plugged in, to differentiate it from the other 5/16" line at the valve.

On all but one of the ones I have done, the brass venturi has just unscrewed out of the burner base without twisting the base. I've done about 5 this way. I use a 20 mm socket with the end ground down to get a more flush bite on the brass.

That kit should be everything you need. Instructions come with the kit. Order it from this link and it supports this site.

There is a tech manual for a dryer like yours in the downloads section, but you would have to upgrade your membership to view it. If you already replaced the heating coil, installing the kit will be easy peasy.

#322633 Viking Refrigerator (DDSB423DSS) Only Cooling to 42 on Coldest Setting

Posted by vee8power on 19 June 2015 - 06:31 AM

Sounds like an air flow issue. The breakdown for a Viking is not readily available but usually there's a damper up top top bring cold air into the fresh food side from the freezer. There's a return vent near the bottom. There could be a blockage. 

#322497 SubZero 550, FF 40 degrees, freezer 20 degrees, both set at 10

Posted by vee8power on 17 June 2015 - 06:39 AM

I would also suspect the condenser fan is not running fast enough. I would have to see it in action. Do the evaporator fans work with the door switches pressed?

There should be screens in the valve:

Go to the service manual request forum and click on the link on top. It will show you how to search for the manual yourself.

Sounds like you're on the right diagnosis.

#321392 Subzero 700TR chills beer at 60 degrees

Posted by vee8power on 04 June 2015 - 06:47 AM

Does the condenser fan run? It sounds like a sealed system problem; maybe it sprung a leak during the trip. You may have to call in a pro if you want to save the unit.
