Thanks Samurai Man.

I just have one question. The relay in the photo does not look anything like the one I pulled out from the side of the compressor.

I have a white housing on to which had one blue wire go to bottom contact lead and two orange wires that went to left side  and one white wire that went to right side contact lead.

It would be easy for me to put it back, if the replacement part is identical to the one I have now. If not then is there any place I can get the instructions to plug the new relay when I order it.


I believe I need relay and overload. So do I need to buy

and/or

http://www.repairclinic.com/0081.asp?RccPartID=586521


Please advice.

Thanks Moostafa.

I just was on phone with Repair clinic and they have this part :

http://www.repairclinic.com/0081.asp?RccPartID=1025988

for $38.98. And this looks 100% identical to what I have on my compressor. I will order online, once I get confirmation from Samurai man.


Also I assume that this will also contain

http://www.repairclinic.com/0081.asp?RccPartID=664995

Because I need that too.


Now I may be wrong. But from what I see

http://www.repairclinic.com/referral.asp?R=154&N=586521
 is not what I currently have on my compressor. Are you sure this is what I need. If so then where can I find details of connecting it to my compressor. I have noted the wries going into my existing relay/overload. So I can replace new 1025988 easily. I will not be able to do so with 586521.

Samurai Man , what say you?

Yes, if you have a visual on this part on your compressor:

http://www.repairclinic.com/referral.asp?R=154&N=1025988

then that's the one you need. It's confusing because the Parts Detective pulled up the other two parts, which would, in fact, work just fine your refrigerator. But the above part simply combines them into one piece, so it has the overload built into it.

Thanks Samurai Repair Man.

I have one problem. The door on the right (fridge) hits the center partition a bit when I close the door. I checked the door when I open and close. It actually moves a bit up and down as intended. It behaves almost like my freezer door. First I thought some small bottles sticking out ot the shelves are causing this. What I noticed is that the mid section (door liner) hits the middle partition wall of the refrigerator. Can this be fixed? Is so what parts do I need?

Is it one of these ?

http://www.repairclinic.com/0081.asp?RccPartID=781123

http://www.repairclinic.com/0081.asp?RccPartID=1035



Thanks.

p.s. I have to order 1025988 over the phone, since they show nothing in their online inventory. They did say they have it when I called them. But once my refrigerator is fixed, you beer money is on the way Samurai Man.

But they already told you it's in in stock, even though the website hasn't been updated to reflect this:

I just was on phone with Repair clinic and they have this part :

http://www.repairclinic.com/referral.asp?R=154&N=1025988

for $38.98. And this looks 100% identical to what I have on my compressor. I will order online, once I get confirmation from Samurai man.


Not sure about the hinges, but this is a visual. Usually, too, you can adjust them without having to actually replace them.

The relays fixed my compressor problem just fine. The part numbers are different because the casing which houses the 2 seperate relays has it's own part number. The new relays will not fit back into the casing because one of them has been superceded by a new relay which has different sized terminals, so you won't be reusing the white housing. The 2 relays will now sit exposed on the compressor itself. Be sure to reference my previous post about the new relay having a different sized connector...just take your time and make the right connections, and you'll be fine.

My problem with the temp. was as i stated, that somewhere along the line, the slider control did not mesh correctly with the gear to adjust the temp. Once I aligned it correctly, it worked fine. It just happened to be coincidently right after I replaced the relays.

Thanks everyone from USA to Afghanistan. This site ROCKS! :cool:

Finally I got my parts using expedited shipping. I installed it yesterday. The sound of the compressor running was music to my ears.  This has been the most easiest of the repairs I have done in my life. (Iwill be nearing 40 yrs). Given the fact I know nothing about refrigerator system.

Samurai repair man, not only have I ordered from this website link, I have also send you beer money.

There is just one word of caution for everyone. When you remove any part, whether it be mechanical or electrical, please not down the layout (wiring if any), so that you can put it back, when the replacement part arrives. For me, I got whirlpool relay and overload for my Maytag refreigrator. The wire colors and connection were different than what were mentioned in the instruction sheet and my notes. Knowing nothing about wiring for the relay, I just went with my basic instinct and connected the wire to the terminals I had made note of.

And to think that I was about to dump this refrigerator!!  Man, did I save money here or what.;)

Going forward, I have promised myself to give a try repairing any appliance (mine), I can get help from this site, before giving up on it.

My Maytag MSD2758GEW will not defrost. Ice is forming in the freezer and will block cold air flow to the refrigerator. What can be the problem? What can I replace to fix this? Thanks in advance for your help

This has happened to me so often that I can tell you exactly what it is on my unit (which will probably be the same fix for yours).

The Adaptive Defrost Control Board has been replaced on my unit 3 times because of this happening. The first time was when the unit was about a year old, and the latest about a year ago. My brother has the same unit, and has had his replaced 6 times already. Each time they replace it, they tell him how often they fail....

What you need to do is empty out the freezer, take the back panels off, and thaw out the ice (I used a heat gun on very low heat (a hairdryer will also work). Make sure you put a pan on the bottom to catch all the water.

The part is readily available, and it is located in the fridge portion, top back right hand corner (you'll have to drop the control mechanisms, etc.) to get to the control board. 


Here is the link to the Adaptive Defrost Control Board:
