Question:

Is it possible to check the run capacitor with a multimeter?

JOE for model number CTF2125GRW
Answer:

Hi Joe, Thank you for your inquiry. Yes it is. You would have to set your multimeter to the lowest setting for ohms of resistance. Then calibrate it to zero. Make sure after unplugging your capacitor you release any electrical charge. You can do this with a screwdriver that has an insulated handle. When testing your capacitor set your meter to 1000 ohms. Touch your probes to the terminals on the part. If your meter stays on 0 then your capacitor needs to be replaced. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

What could be the cause of the refrigerator not to cool but the freezer compartment is working.

Joe for model number CTF2125GRW
Answer:

Hi Joe, Thank you for your question. There are a couple of parts that could cause that issue. You may want to check your run capacitor, defrost timer, defrost thermostat, and your evaporator fan motor as well. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

I want to replace the defrost timer. I have the part.(wp68233-3). I believe it may be behind the control cover in the refrigerator compartment. How do you take the cover off to access the timer???

Answer:

Hi William, Thank you for your inquiry. There is a video listed with the part on our website that you may reference on how to install defrost timer. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

To replace the defrost timer, the instructions say behind the grill. Where's the grill? Is it in the freezer or refrigerator compartment?

Richard for model number RTT1900DAE Maytag
Answer:

Hi Richard, Thank you for your question. From your diagram information, it is located down below where your compressor and evaporator coils are. The grille that they might have been referring to is the grille at the very bottom of your refrigerator, sometimes called the kickplate. However if it is not there, I would suggest checking inside the control panel in your fridge. I hope that helps! Good luck with your repair.

Maytag refrigerator - fridge compartment was not cooling and the freezer compartment seemed to be cooling okay

Maytag Refrigerator (new 1991): First I unplugged the refrigerator from the electrical receptacle. I then removed the front grille and used a nutdriver to remove two small screws and unplugged the defective defrost timer. I then plugged the new defrost timer in, reinstalled the two small screws, reinstalled the front grille, and finally, plugged the refrigerator into the electrical receptacle. This took less than 15 minutes to complete. Please note, you may need to manually defrost the refrigerator, at least 8-10 hours, in order for the new defrost timer to have a fresh start of a defrosted fridge.
Frigidaire Freezer (new 2005) - Replacing the Drain Pan: First I unplugged the freezer from the electrical receptacle. I then removed the four bolts holding the compressor in place using a socket and ratchet. Then I carefully pulled the compressor out of its compartment to where I could easily get to the broken drain pan. I removed the broken drain pan and installed the new drain pan. Carefully pushing the compressor back into its compartment, reinstalling the four bolts. Plugged the freezer back into the electrical receptacle. Please use caution as the compressor may be hot and being careful not to kink any of the lines connected to the compressor. This project of installing a new drain pan took me about an hour to complete. Good Luck

Would not exit defrost mode (continual defrost)

Unplug the refrigerator. Remove face plate located in the upper back of the refrigerator compartment. Remove face place bracket on the right using nut driver. Removing these screws also frees the metal case enclosing the Defrost Timer. Pull the case away from the back of the refrigerator exposing the Defrost timer. Remove the electrical plug from the Defrost Timer. Then remove the Defrost Timer from the case by removing the two screws securing it. Reverse the procedure to install the new Defrost Timer.

Refrigerator not cooling

My repair honestly was fairly simple, using the break down drawings i caputred on this site. all the components i purchased here, fit properly in the spaces provided for them ,upon restarting my refrigerator after assembling it workrd properly for about 2 week, then i discoverd a new problem, which has nothing to do with the parts i replaced, but i believe before i ever ordered any parts,my wife had a repairman come out to service it, that the part he installed was defective, not to mention he over charged me close to 400% FOR A PART I COULD HAVE GOTTEN ON THIS SITE FOR MERE DOLLARS, and the labor was totally ridiculous in cost. never again was my initial thought and never again it is , the part i have on order now is the heater tempt assembly that was installed that i am sure will take me no more than 15 minutes if that to do myself, with the other new components, i am anticipating my frige working fine, this should keep my evaporator coils from icing up and allowing the air to circulate and keep both my frieezer and fresh food compartments at the correct tempts.all components purchased and the one on order still comes out to less than what i paid a repairman to service my fridge with the installation of only one part that isn't doing its job.
