Question about Maytag 22.1 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator w / Factory Installed Ice Maker
24 hours ago the fridge stopped cooling. We cranked it up to the highest setting (gradually increased during the day), but nothing. Freezer is fine.
Put into service in 2003.
Any clue? Should I try to repair, or just bite the bullet and repair. No past problems.
Try to verify the freezer selector, maybe it malfunctioning, else maybe it need a general cleaning on its parts. For most accurate troubleshooting you may call on the nearest repairman.

Oncce the fridge was shut off and left for a while the cooling had come back . If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
If after about 6 hours you observe cooling it is possible that the defrost timer is faulty.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if Ice forms then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
replace the defrost timer, heater or thermostat one you have confirmed to eliminate one by one.
