I have a Maytag Side by Side fridge model# MSD2758DR, Sometimes the compressor doesn't turn back on, so items in the freezer and fridge start to thaw and spoil. But, if I knock on the temp control on top of the fridge the compressor will kick back on. Then everything functions normally again. Might last a day or 2 then I'll have to knock the temp control again to get the compressor going. Been doing this for months. Any suggestions?

"Hello Joe. Yes, 2 days will freeze back over and Yes, the air comes from the freezer back into the refrigerator. The defrost issue is the problem with the unit. Hope this helps." - Where does the air come into the fridge? Auto damp hole only? - Can I test (ohm meter) the defrost control board? What else should I test? Thanks!

This is reapeat question but I don't know how to keep a dialog going without starting a whole new question. Sorry for the repetition...Side-by-side with freezer temp ok, fridge around 50. Unit is constantly running. Back wall of freezer had ice build up which I defrosted by unplugging. Technician recharged freon as it was supposedly low ($150) as temps on both side were high and ice maker stopped functioning. Freon recharge initially appeared to be the solution however after a day or so then fridge temps creeped back up to 50. Removed auto damp assembly (AP4070404) as per your recommendation to allow cold air into fridge side plus to test auto damp assy. Haven't tested auto damp assy yet but could my problem be the defrost control unit? I ask because I have seen that being an issue for units with the same symptoms (freezer OK but ice build up, fridge warm). Is the fridge cooled through the auto damper hole from the freezer or are there other ports to allow cold air in from the freezer? Also, how do I open the damper manually? Pull on it? I believe the spring connects the auto damp assy to the door which pulls on it thus allowing cold air to enter the fridge. Will the defrost coils block up in two days and prevent air from circulating into the fridge? Doesn't seem likely...

Yesterday I asked about why my freezer was at the proper temp (o deg) but the fridge was around 45-50. Your response was for me to remove the auto damper assy part# AP4070404 to allow cold air to enter the fridge from the freezer (interim fix) so I could further test the damper assy. I removed the damper assy but couldn't figure out how to allow cold air in. I did feel cold air come in when I opened the freezer side, but when I closed the freezer, the cold air flow stopped. Do you pull on a damper door or does it slide? I'm guessing that this is what the spring is connected to. To further diagnose what the issue with my unit may be, I forgot to comment that initially the freezer had come ice build up on the back wall. That went away when I unplugged the unit overnight. As a result of seeing other questions similiar to the symptoms that my frdge is experiencing, and based on your response/s, it looks like I may have an auto defrost problem and not an auto damper proplem. How does the auto defrost affect the temp on the fridge side? Thanks for your time, you guys are great.

There is a loud buzzing noise coming from this part. Would you suggest replacing the entire assembly or could it be a seperate part that would cause the buzzing noise?
