SOURCE: Maytag MTB2156GEW Freezer works but refrigerator (lower part) not

Is the freezer fan working ? Is there frost on the rear wall , inside the freezer section ? If frost , in the middle of the control panel , you will see a hole slightly larger (1/2 " ) . Insert a screwdriver slightly into this hole and turn slowly until you hear a click slightly louder than the rest . Once you hear this click , stop . The freezer fan should be off ( you set it into the defrost cycle ) . Close the fridge door . Using a short extension cord with all 3 wires split (without bare wire showing) check the amps . 2 to 5 amps is good , this would indicate the heater and bimetal are good , also , indicates that the timer is probably bad . If you get no reading on the amp meter , then either the bimetal or heater is bad . Remove the inside rear freezer panel . Trace the heater wires (1 on each side) and disconnect . Useing an ohm meter , or beep meter (tells continuity) , test the 2 heater wires for continuiny . No continuity , replace the heater
pt # 61002046 . If continuity thru heater , then bimetal is bad (small disk clipped onto the coils , with 2 wires attached . Pt # 61005254 .

Most likely one of two conditions are the root of the problem. Either the fan in the freezer is stalled or the defrost system has failed. The fan in the freezer should run any time the comressor is running; if it's not, there's your problem. If you can hear the fan, check for frost or snow developing across the back panel in the freezer. Local repair service could probably supply replacement parts quickly for defrost failures (most likely a bad terminator if defrost system isn't working).
