Hi! We have a maytay fridge (sorry I don't know the model, but it's pretty basic with the freezer
on top, probably 5-6 years old) that has a couple of strange problems:
1. A couple of times per week the motor shuts off and the fridge/freezer are no longer cool/cold. We simply rotate the temprature dial to 1 (warmest), and then back to 5 (coldest) and the motor kicks back on and everything is fine...until it stops again a day or so later.
*note: two or three times, we've used the trick above and the motor hasn't turned back on, or it turns on for 1-10 seconds and stops again. When this happens, if we come back an hour or so later, the trick works.
2. The ice machine fails to work except for three times, unexpectedly, in the past 6 months. We haven't touched anything on it; we haven't been able to get it to work, and then three times we went to the freezer and found piles of ice.
Any ideas what could be causing these issues?
Thanks in advance!
