Maytag MFC2061HES Not cooling Either Fridge or Freezer

I have checked both doors to make sure they were sealing they are,  It makes a sound ever 1-2 mins like its trying to start up and it just kinda buzzes then the buzzing stops with a click.  Is it doomed?

My food in the fridge section is freezing in my Frigidaire fqe6307sae. How do I know if it is the thermostat and how do I adjust the temperature on the display?

I could check the freezer for ice build up. clean the door seals and make sure the freezer isn't overloaded. Too much food or improper sealing of the doors will make the compressor work harder in cooling down the freezer which in turn freezes the fridge part.

good luck

freezers need good door seals to work. The fact that the freezer is keeping things cool indicate that it is working but the cold air is getting out ,probably at the bottom of the door
one method of checking door seals is to inspect for cracks,hardness
use a piece of tissue paper and place under seal at door opening and try to pull the paper out. if it comes easily then the seal needs replacing

Freezer working fine the fridge is not

The motor running constantly means the fridge is not sealed properly so that it is losing cold to outside. Check if the door of the fridge seals properly.

Stop cooling every 5 days I defrost manual GSS201ETCBB

Does the freezer / fridge door close good? Check the hinges. Also check the seal and the amount of food stuff you may have close to the door. If you have an ice maker make sure you have it secured inside the freezer section.

It sounds like something is keeping the freezer door open or from closing good.

Hi, I have a Maytag (MFD2560HES) fridge. The Freezer is working but the fridge is not cooling. What could be the causes? Alton.

you need to check and make sure the evaporator fan is running in the freezer compartment while the unit is in the cooling mode if it is then check the damper in the top of the fridge and make sure it is opening all the way to allow the cold air in the fridge.if ti does not open it needs to replaced.
If the fan is not running it needs to be replaced also check for excessive ice build up in the freezer compartment that would also block the air flow

I cannot change the temperature on my Maytag MFC2061HES. Whenever I try to change either the refer or freezer temp, it creeps back down to 33 with the freezer going to 6. I cannot turn it off. The...

It sounds like your fridge has problem with the damper stuck open. The damper is in the top-back-center of the fresh food section. I can't tell by the pics I have how to get to it, but looks like it's simple to get to it - just remove the damper cover.
Check the damper for the ice buildup. Clean if needed. Unplug the fridge and check continuity on damper motor. Replace damper if no continuity.
Check the microswitch on the damper assembly. C on switch [where it connects to black wire] should make contact with NC [yellow/red] when button is not pressed, and C with NO [blue/red] should make contact when button is down).
With temp in the fresh food section so low, the damper should be closed, and if it isn't there should be power (110v ac) coming to the motor either continuously until it closes or for a short period of time within a few minutes after you try to set the temperature, can't tell by schematic. Unplug, connect your DMM in "volts ac" parallel to the damper motor (red and green/yellow wires), and plug fridge back in. If it does not show 110v immediately, set the DMM to show the maximum voltage registered, and leave in the fridge for 20-30 minutes, with doors closed. If there was 110v, and the damper is still open - replace damper. Otherwise it's very likely that the control board failed.

Fridge not cooling/frezer overworking

It is constantly running because the thermostat in your refrigerator registers a warm temperature that never reaches target. Your refrigerator's cooling is dependant on your freezer - obviously your evaporator fan is working since your freezer is cooling, however that cool air is, for some reason not reaching your fridge - Make sure the vents are not blocked or plugged with ice - If applicable also check the damper, maybe the flap is not opening at all, letting cool air in.
Also check door seals and make sure te light switches off by pressing the door contact button.

Maytag fridge

Without knowing the type of fridge(side by side, freezer on top etc.) all I can offer is this: Somewhere between the freezer and the fridge there's an opening thermostatically controlled to transfer cold air from freezer to the fridge. Most have a fan to move the air. So either the fan (if so equipped) stopped, and need to replace, or opening is stuck closed, or plugged.
If freezer is working fine, this is the only problem I can think of.
Hope this helps
