Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

Do you have a full model number so I can better assist you? It should be located on a sticker near the ceiling of the refrigerator section and seen if you just open the refrigerator door.

Why do you think it's turned off? Does it have a display? What does the display say?

Maytag
Model Number: MFW2055YEM02
Issue: The outside LED shows cooling off

Awesome. One moment.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

There are 6 buttons below the display. Press and hold the 3rd and 4th buttons together for 5 seconds to turn the cooling back on (the 2 middle buttons).

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today and reply back here letting me know with a rating of 1-5 stars (5 being the best). If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.

It’s still showing cooling off

Press and hold SPEED COOL and MOISTURE CONTROL buttons for 5 seconds together. That's the only way to remove cooling off. If it doesn't remove, unplug the refrigerator for 5 minutes and try again. If it still won't remove, you need a new front control panel which is about $250. There are no other options.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

Hmm, thank you that does help because the service manual is wrong. Press and hold the FREEZER TEMP and FRIDGE TEMP buttons together (the 2 outside buttons) for 5 seconds and that should turn the cooling back on.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

That's just a reminder to replace the filter, no big deal. Press and hold the water filter button for 5 seconds to reset the timer.

Thanks, ***** ***** too. So, how long will it take to cool?

12 hours or so before the refrigerator is down to temperature. The freezer will take 3-4 hours.
