I have the same problem and I am able to resolve it by defrosting the element which is behind the inside rear panel of the freezer. I use a hair dryer to melt the ice build up. It happbed a couple of times so I know that there is a cause for this which may be the defrost heater but I am not sure how to confirm this. Let me know if you have any ideas.

Hi, With the information you supplied i'm going to assume there is an ice build up at the rear of the freezer. Your problem is going to be with your defrost system. I will also assume you have the ability to repair this yourself. This is going to be one of three problems with your refridgerator, 1st thing to do is remove shelfs and panel in the back of the freezer...you should see ice build up on the evaporator...don't worry get a hair dryer and melt the ice. Next locate the wires for the heater...using a multi meter test the heater for condinuity...if the heater is bad replace it, If the heater is good replace the defrost thermostat..the stat normally is a barrel looking part clipped onto the evaporator pipe. The last possible problem could be the evaporator fan, have you heard the fan running in the past few hours?..if you are not sure pull the panel out to where you can see fan and watch it over an hour to see if it turns. I have included links with pictures of what the parts you need to check are: http://romulusappliance.com/manufacturers/maytag/refrigerators/575432.JPG defrost stat http://www.hotekalliance.com/UploadFiles/2008627111553382.jpg heaters http://www.applianceblog.com/archives/EvapMotor1018185.jpg evap fan. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. If you decide to get a repair guy in should not cost you any more then $120 - $200 depending on make/model/problem Good luck!

There are 3 things to look for on the TFH22PRSAAA refrigerator when this happens. First we need to have a look inside the rear of the freezer and see is there is frost build up on the rear back panel that covers the evaporator. If yes you the next thing to do is look inside the fresh food compartment for the defrost timer located behind the control panel as shown in the photo below. I want you to turn the defrost timer clockwise until the compressor motor and fans stop. The refrigerator should be in the defrost mode now. Open the freezer door and listen for crackling and sizzling cause by the defrost heater being on. If there is no sounds or changes the you need to let me know. The timer should turn the refrigerator back on after 25 minutes. If not simply turn the timer again slowly clockwise until the compressor restarts. If you need to do this you will need to replace the defrost timer because the timer is no longer running as a timer and has become defective. I am going to stop here because I don't want you to think this is too hard to do It's easy to do these test and I will be here to assist you. Let me know when you are ready or if you fell you have it under control please rate my solution when were finished the repair, Thanks, Sea Breeze

The wheels located in the back of the unit cannot be adjusted and the front ones can be accessed under the doors by pulling off the grill assembly. Use the screw going thru the cabinet on each side to adjust the front two wheels. Hope this helps.
