Question about Maytag MTB2156GES Top Freezer Refrigerator

7 year old MTB2156GEQ Tob Mount Maytag Refridge

I am extremely disappointed in this Maytag Refridgerator and now have don't know what to do. For the past six months many of the items in the refridgerator part were freezing. They were mostly the items on the top shelve. So we moved them away from the fan, thinking it was a circulation problem. Then we started hearing noise. The ice maker stopped working and the freezer wasn't getting cold enough. I don't know what to do, because I have always believed in Maytag products. Although I realize they are not made my Maytag anymore, I expected more than 7 years out of it! I don't know if it's worth paying a repair person to take a look, and possibly replace a part $100,$200., or more. Or just cutting my losses and research and purchase a new one.

You're right about Maytag, it ain't what it use to be. I always check Consumer Reports

Need more information
Does the refridgerator have plumbing for water/ ice? Is the water connected? Check that fittings are tight and not leaking.

How old is your machine? Older refridgerator have a drip pan in order to be frost free. Drip pan could be not in correctly or the hose from compressor is not flowing to drip pan.

Is the refridge level?

is there air coming out of the freezer vent inside the freezer? If not, then there is ice built up on the fan. Let me know if there is air blowing in the freezer or not.
