Question about Refrigerators
The freezer is working properly.However, the refrigerator is not cooling, even though the setting is at the coolest.
Pierce, there was a service bullitin put out on this model. TDR-0010A-B. Had to do with normal freezer, warm fresh food compartment. Maytag issued a kit that included a new thermostat and damper assy. to solve this problem. Bullitin came out in 2002. If you are not having a defrost issue and all fans are running normal, I would call Maytag and inquire about the above posted bullitin, It may be covered. Catriver...post back.

Depends a bit on whether the compressor really is running, or if it's just humming because it's got power on the run coil, but not on the start coil.
Have a careful listen to the compressor. If it's making the trilling or gurgling sounds that go with a working compressor, then your problem is probably one of lost gas. Fixing this is not a do-it-yourself job.
If the compressor sounds like it's stalled, the problem may lie with the starter. Replacements are usually cheap enough for it to be worth fitting a new one just to see if it works.

The lowest setting in the freezer compartment may be set to cold holding back cooling to the refrigerator. Try your settings at mid-point on both refrigerator and freezer settings.

I don't have a solution, but I have the same problem. Or rather I did until today when the freezer started defrosting itself too.
It sounds very similar to the RS21 problem that is on the watchdog website, but as my fridge/freezer is 8 years old I don't think they are going to give two hoots about repairing it foc.
