Be very careful, when the ice maker malfunctions, many things can be the culprit. The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at email@example.com

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

SOURCE: our freezer keeps freezing up
Yes , it seems that the thermostat is not working, please check the lines from the thermostat to the control board as frost in due course can effect the connections.
Also make sure that the Auto defrost section is also working with the timer working to defrost in set time- check the heaters and timer.

first thing to check would be to see if the unit is not going into the defrost cycle if you remove the rear panel on the inside of the freezer and check to see if you have an ice build up around the condensor area. while you also have this panel removed you can also check to assure that the fan located in this same area is working properly. Here is also a link on why this happens click here http://www.applianceoutletservice.com/appliance-care-tips/refrigerator-tips/refrigerator-defrost-system-information.htm if you do have ice build up you should take a hair dryer to defrost the ice that is built up around the condensor. Also if you do have this ice build up in order to find out which piece is causing your defrost malfunction you can performin with a multimeter continuity tests on the defrost thermostat and the defrost heater as well here is also a video on how to test the defrost timer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPpLl2d0094 basicly if you pull off that rear panel and the fan is not working you would just replace the fan . Remove the rear panel first and message me back if you have an ice build up and we can solve your refrigerators warming up situation also if you have any further questions message me back with these as well note some models do not have a defrost timer instead they have a pcb board in which it controls the defrost system differently then the timer if you have the pcb instead of the timer and you feel that it is not either the thermostat or the heater message me back this information as well 87% of the time that this happens it is due to the defrost thermostat they are a very cheaply made piece and do short quite easily. Also please remember when our chat has FULLY CONCLUDED to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future Thanks for using Fixya

Hello erintu81 - SY CF typically indicates that the refrigerator has detected a communication failure after power up. The wiring between the main control board and user interface board will need to be accurately diagnosis. Depending on the results either or will need replacing. At this point, I strongly recommend connecting a professional to move forward accurately and to properly assist with the repair(s).
