Neither refrigerator or freeer is very cold despite moving controls to coldest setting. Notice some frosting on inside of freeer on back part way down.

The defrost system has failed. Most likely a bad heater and thermostat behind the freezer wall panel.
Both controls should be set to the mid-range.
If the heater and thermostat are good then the main control board is bad.

Fridge is not cooling. lights are working. freeer is working

Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

The automatic defrost cycle is not working in freezer. Can this just be low on freon and making it freeze up? I can defrost and refrigerator will work fine till it freezes up again.

Most times on your model it is the ADC or adaptive defrost control. Part number 13 in photo here=> MSD2756GEW Maytag Refrigerator Control Panel This is behind your controls inside your fresh food compartment.
61005988 Adaptive Defrost Assembly
When the fresh food compartment begins to get too cold is usually when the part #8 in that photo goes bad and that is called the auto air damper
61005971 Damper Control Assembly
More on that part next time. I believe you will be fine once the ADC is changed, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Refrigerator leaking water from freezer compartment, freezing along walls of freezer, but running water out under door

Sounds like the defrost water drain is plugged up. It could be a piece of food wrapper fell into it, or something. What make and model is it? Top freezer? Side by Side?

My Maytag Plus refrigerator was stored for 3 years in a climate controlled storage. I moved it a couple of weeks ago and ran it for a week or so without hooking up the water line, and it was working great....

If that is the model number above your post let me know or if different. Most times the dual water control valve sticks or or may need to replace. Place water in the trays and if it freezes cycles and dumps the ice maker is OK but the ice maker during is last few seconds of cycle tells the valve to open. Try that first and I will find you a service manual and part numbers. Sea Breeze

Maytag side by side Model MSD2756GEW Freezer OK, Food sect hot

First you need to see if the venting from fzr to refrig is blocked......then check to see if there's frost on back wall of fzr. Frost would mean defrost heater is not working. *** It helps a lot also to know which model & serial you have. Those numbers can be found inside the refrigerator section on the side wall or ceiling on a tag.
