My Maytag Frig (Model# PTB1953GRW) keeps shutting down. The light still is on when I open the doors I know it is getting power. When I tap the control panel the motor starts running, but when it reaches the set temp, it shuts off & does not restart until I tap the control panel again. When I opened up the panel & wiggled the connection on the left side temp control assembly, the motor went on & off. Can this part have a short in it that would cause this problem?
ANSWER Hello Pat. Based on the information you provided, the temp control 61005790 is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
