Question about Maytag MTB2156GES Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a model MTB1956GE Maytag Fridge, Frezzer

I have a model MTB1956GE Maytag Fridge, Frezzer compartment works well and keeps everything frozen. Fridge compartment won't get cold enough to keep food. We tried defrosting in case ice was in air duct between freezer and fridge no avail. The fan may not be working to circulate cold air. Not sure how to proceed or if I'm on right track. Please help.

Can you feel air moving or hear the fan running in the freezer section? You said the freezer section is freezing well, but is it freezing really hard?

    I can hear what sounds like a fan running ie noise but I don't feel any air movement inside the freezer. Earlier today before we noticed the problem with the fridge portion the freezer had solid ice and solid ice cream.

    If you can't feel air moving at the back vent in the freezer, you will need to replace the fan motor. Here is a link to the part you need. The part is number 7 on the list. They make 2 different fans for that model so you will need to remove the rear panel in the freezer to see which one you have.

Can you tell me why please?


All the big cooling happens inside freezer compartment. Freezer gives little cool air to fridge compartment. Now when the vent blocks that little cold air cannot go into fridge compartment. Thus your freezer works good but not fridge compartment. Milk goes bad but frozen meet keeps good.....

Vent freeze up either due to defrost problemt, defrost drain line problem, Evaporator fan problem or even can be your damper motor not opening due to unit failure or frozen damper door.

Amana refridgerater freezer will not keep freezer frozen


this might have something to do with the defrost disk located in the frezzer behind the panel, its a small round disk attached to your coils. get a part or model number and look it up. hope this helps.

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Yes sounds like the drain tube frozen or blocked.Remove the back cover in the freezer and the drain hole is in the center bottom is it covered with ice? You can use hot water to thaw it or a hair dryer. Im sure its just frozen and be careful not to poke the aluminum evaporator it sometimes takes a little while to get the drain all clear.You will see and hear it drain when its clear.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

My Kenmore refrigerator is not cooling properly. Freezer portion works fine but not refrigerator. Came on suddenly.


I had the same problem. The frezzer worked but the fridge was not getting cold. What I have learned is that the frezzer make the fridge cold, so if the frezzer is working then something is blocking the cold air to get into the fridge. Most likely ice. The air come in at the bottom of the inside of the fridge next to the frezzer. Pull everything out of the frezzer, then unscrew the plannel that runs along the back and you see if there is ice. If so turn frezzer off and dry out the frezzer. I used hot water.

This is a drawback of most mini-fridges. Start by defrosting everything. Then fill ice cube trays with water and keep lowering the setting until the water freezes. Just go a little lower, no more. Fridge should not freeze food. If the fridge stays closed all the time food will freeze. Also if the freezer element gets ice buildup it must be defrosted. Not automatic like home fridge. Most kids today weren't born when the last fridges that had to be defrosted were in service.

Your defrost system consists of the timer, heater and thermostat. Your problem could be any of these. But because your fan doesn't turn off it is more than likely the timer. https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-number/MTB1956GEW/3048/0166000.html
