    Question [FIXED] Maytag MZD2766 - No Cold At All

    I have the infamous Maytag MZD2766GE Wide by Side. I replaced the adaptive defrost control board about 6 months ago. Today got the call from the wife that the freezer is no longer working and everything has thawed out. I thought it was the adc again. but I removed the back paneling in the freezer, and there was no frozen coils. dammit, that means it is something else.
    what do I need to test, where do I start probing with my meter?

    Hi,

    Is the compressor or fans running at all?

    This thread explains how to check the relay start device:

    Here's the start relay kit for your model you can order:
    Manufacturer part number 12002784 is RepairClinic item number 1194899
    12002784

    It comes with complete installation instructions.

    I have a Maytag MSD2754GRW and bought the replacement 12002784 Overload Relay kit I see where the orange and Blue wires go. Where does the white wire go?

    Hi,

    They make 2 different overload/relay kits for this model, depending on your serial#.

    Please post your serial# to see if thats even the correct kit for your model.

    If your serial# starts with 23 or higher then you need this kit:
    (part # 12002794)
