Unplug it for a couple of minutes, Try again. It may have been hit with a surge. IF that is the case, you are looking at main control board and some money. Contact your homeowners insurance if a surge has damaged it.

Most of the time there is a tech sheet attached to the refrigerator for the maytags. It is usually found by removing the kick plate and is usually taped in a plastic bag to protect it from dirt and debris.
I was able to find a wiring diagram for this model but no tech sheet so there may not be one or maybe I just couldn't find it.

Sounds this fridge/freezer has a refrigerant leak. Eventually the freezer will also stop freezing. Need to find and fix leak and refill with refrigerant.

I would lift up the drip tray and clean that out making sure nothing is under it. If it is coming from the dispenser then there is no reason to check under the fridge unless you think something is under there like grapes or berries.

From the drawing on your model, it looks like you may have to take out the top drawer and possibly the case for the drawer. Sometimes it is behind a light shield (usually an opaque piece of plastic) although I do not see one listed for this model. The correct # for the bulb is WPA3073101 which is a 25 watt bulb but I am sure you can find an "or equivalent" that would work just fine. It could be clear or have a blue coating to make the light more natural.

Depending on the age of your unit, having to skin the unit to get the coil out, remove the bad coil, weld the new coil in, pressure check it, pull a vacuum for 4 hours, then charge it could cost upwards of $2500. More depending on the fridge. When your replacing coils, it's time to go buy a new fridge. It's not cost effective and the waranty would only cover the coil
