To troubleshoot a Jade Maytag refrigerator, identify the specific problem and the symptoms associated with it. Common problems with Jade Maytag Refrigerator include failure to cool, water leakage and failure to defrost. Other problems include a light not working, the ice maker overflowing and it making unusually loud noises.
The refrigerator fails to cool when condenser coils are dirty or when the evaporator fan motor is defective.
Thorough cleaning of the condenser coils and replacing the fan motor help to rectify this problem. A freezing defrost drain may cause water leakage in the refrigerator, and cleaning it with hot water often resolves this problem.
The defrost drain may not work properly when the drain strap is faulty, or when the drain heater is worn out. Replacing the drain strap and drain heater may help to solve this. The light fails to turn on when the light assembly is defective or if the door switch is faulty. Checking the effectiveness of the door switch with an ohm meter, and replacing the light assembly help to resolve this problem.
The ice maker overflows when there is low water pressure in the inlet valve or when the ice maker assembly is defective. Increasing water pressure to the house supply and replacing the ice maker assembly often resolve this problem. If the refrigerator is producing too much noise, the fan blade might be faulty or the condenser fan motor bearings might be worn out. Adjusting the fan blade so that it can turn freely and replacing the condenser fan motor help to eliminate excess noise.
