Maytag refrigerator and freezer get warm
Model Number: MFD2561HEB Brand:
5 - 10 years
My Maytag refrigerator model MFD2561HEB gets 20 degrees warmer every couple of weeks. This will last a few hours then it will go back to normal. I first noticed that all my ice was melted into a large block and all the ice cream had melted then froze. My first thought was that the kids left the freezer door open and was not very worried about it. About 2 weeks later this happened again and I happen to be home while it was going on. I watched as both the fridge and freezer went up around 20 degrees warmer then normal. Also I noticed some light frost and tiny icicles in the back of the freezer where the vent is. The unit is one with the freezer on bottom and the french doors on top. Can anyone shed some light on where to start to figure out the problem? Just a side note when the unit was a few months old the fan went out that blows the cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator and the head unit where you connect the filter to went bad.
