Question about Maytag 25.6 cu. ft. Wide-By-Side Refrigerator with PuriClean II Ice and Water
This past Thanksgiving, we noticed that the fridge was not cooling properly. We took eveything out of the the freezer side and took off the panel which covers the evaporator coil. It was frozen over with ice. We defrosted it with a hair dryer and replaced the panel, and the fridge started dropping degrees immediately. Now, of course, just in time for Christmas, we began having the same problem again. Just an hour ago, we went through the same process again, but this time it looks like the degrees in the fridge aren't dropping below 55. Wondering if we should call a repair person.
We had this same problem. Called a repairman. There was a plug to the motor that was not shielded by the manufacturer. Ice built up and pushed the plug out. The repairman melted the ice and plugged it back in. He also shielded the plug to keep it from happening again. The plug was in a position that you couldn't get it unless you knew what you were doing. The whole repair cost $78.00 including the $54.00 for the service call.

You probably have a defective adaptive defrost timer causing ice to block air flow . It might still be frozen between the freezer and fridge.
