Default Fridge side started to freeze, then both sides went dead
Model Number: MSD2554ARW   Brand: Maytag   Age: Less than 1 year

Thanks for reading. Details: Rev 11, and the serno is 11412390US.

Worked fine for a few years, then the fridge section seemed to get a little colder than normal for a few days (a jug of water in the fridge got a little ice floating in it), then both sides stopped cooling altogether. Lights still work, water works (though it's always given it an iodine taste, strangely).

I don't hear it trying to do anything.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hi.

Here are the breakdown diagrams and 02-Controls parts for Maytag MSD2554ARW - AppliancePartsPros.com

Remove the cover #21 off and locate in the right rear corner the defrost timer shaft in the small opening.Use the flat screw driver to slowly turn the shaft CW for one full turn or until you'll hear the click.
If the fridge kicks on - replace the defrost timer #13

Part number: 68233-2

Part number: 68233-2


If not - replace the cold control (thermostat) #3

Part number: 61005516

Part number: 61005516


Post the results.

Simon.

Update: I turned the defrost timer shaft, got the click, but nothing else.

Thermostat ordered. I'll post my results once it's installed.

Thanks again.
