Question about Maytag Refrigerators
SOURCE: Fridge not keeping cold
check the controls and make sure they are set properly, so that you are getting air into the ref. also a common thing is that the evap fan motor could be bad and not blowing air into the ref area. it could also be the start of a defrost problem

You have plugged the defrost drain line.This is where the water goes to
in the bottom of your freezer when it goes through the defrost (removal
of ice from the freezer coil) cycle. It sounds like that hole is
plugged and now the water/ice has now frozen in the vent that lets air
circulate down into your refrigerator compartment. What I usually do in
this case is to unplug the refrigerator, empty out the freezer
compartment. Usually I also end up either pulling off the back panel or
the bottom panel (in the freezer compartment) Looking for that defrost
drain hole and thawing it out with a heat gun (be careful of melting
plastic) or actually I use a hair dryer. I can sometimes do this also
by pouring small amounts of HOT tap water onto it and then
sopping/absorbing it away with a sponge or dishcloth. I repeat this
until I get the water to go down the drain tube.
Try it and let me know!

The Chefmate 1.7 fridge uses a thermalelectric device (TED) to provide cold air. There are no moving parts there. The problem is usually in the power supply. That is the PCB on the left side behind the back cover. If the fans are running then your thermostat is bad or the TED is cracked. You can buy these ebay or other places on line. To change one you must carefully remove the large heat sink. The TED itself is only about two inches square. If you decide to replace this unit be sure to get a supply of heat sink glue. Otherwise you will end up with a hot (or cold) spot on the TED possitly causing another crack.
