    My Roper RT14 does the same thing. The freezer is very cold, the refrigerator is barely cold (with the thermostat at max) and water drips into the frig from above. In my case the freezer door was open for a couple of days which may have started the problem. I removed the frost and the freezer now closes properly. Any ideas how to resolve the frig temp problem?

It could be the defrost thermostat located on the condenser coil on the left side of the fan in the freezer compartment... or else it could be the defrost timer located in the refrigerator behind the dome cover... defrost the freezer and make sure the drain tube is not blocked nor the air passage which blow cold air from freezer to refrigerator compartment below. Water should drip from freezer down hole into tube to an evaporator pan on the top of the compressor near the floor in the back. Make sure the tube is free flowing by pouring some hot water down it before restarting refrigerator. Rarely the defrost heating element shorts, but a simple continuity test will determine if that is o.k. Make sure the refrigerator is uplugged before checking any of these areas... there's 120 volts all about and with water and ice it can cause quite a jolt!

My Whirlpool refridgerater on the bottm has stop getting cold, but the freezer on the top is still working perfectly. Could the amount of food in my freezer effect the temperatue of my refridgerater?


highly unlikely u usually have a duct that goes thru from the freezer to the refrigerator make sure this channel is open and not blocked or u have a fan in the refrigerator one of the 2 if u have a fan it will be behind a panel in the back of the refrigerator if u have a fan it may not be running if its not running check voltage and make sure u r getting power to the fan if so then spin the blade and make sure it spins freely if it does then u have a bad motor replace it its very simple and cheap hope this helps

Ice maker is not working anymore. Water doesn't fill the tub. Water dispenser out of the door is still working


I need you to double check the model number. Maytag has a service library at this link. http://www.servicematters.com/maytag_library/html/index.html
By placing the first 3 letters in the search feature it will take you to models like yours. Chose the correct model that you have and enter the number in the search. I believe that the water control valve on back of your refrigerator is the problem. Maytag is very good about helping their customers. Let me know if you have problems gettting the information you need, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Frost Free, freezer ok but fridge warm


If all else fails I would completely defrosted the unit.If there is any blockage this will open up all the tubes.Unplug it open the doors put pans of hot water in the freezer to speed up the process.
Make sure your fan is still working ,its located behind the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refridgerater may be blocked.With out a fan you have no circulation but your freezer may look likes its working,it may last 3 days.Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.
