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?

I have a GE side by side ref. model # GSS22JFMC WW that is not cooling. A few months ago I replaced the defrosting element. It is not freezing up but for some reason it sometimes stops cooling. I can turn...

First this refrigerator has very low consumer rating. They are plagued with problems with very poor company backing. But without be able to diagnosis the problem in person I would say it's the mother board. And you may find that GE has a new updated board for your appliance. I would go to and search for your motherboard for your refrigerator and read the reviews. Some people leave some great idea. Plus it you bought this refrigerator brand new you can fight with GE to send you a new board.

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.
