I have a maytag fridge (freezer on bottom) the fridge is not very cold. freezer has started to get ice near the door opening in the last week.

if you see ice near the door the door muat not be closing all the way or the gasket could be ripped,ice will form where warm and cold air are mixing together,did you remove any of the shelves or baskets in the freezer or in the fridge?i've seen people clean out the fridge and the shelves weren't put back in correctly keeping the door open,check that or food packages that might be hitting the door,when the warm air gets in it usually freezes the air ducts,this is why the fridge is warm,all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,the evap fan blows the cold air from the freezer into the fridge section and then it returns through other air ducts so if warm air is getting in it will freeze up the air ducts,you can try shutting down the machine or unplug it,remove the food from the freezer and with a hair dryer hit the back inside wall of the freezer,blow the air up into the vent holes in the back wall,if you see water dripping down through the slots you have ice up in there,keep blowing the hot air up into the holes until you don't see any more water dripping,if you can remove the ice maker and remove the back inside wall of the freezer would be better.first check the freezer back wall to see if there's any frost or like snow on it,if so you could have a defrost problem,bad jazz board,this is the computer board that's behind your digital controls in the fridge section,bad defrost thermostat or heater,also do you mean the floor of the freezer has ice on it,you could have a blocked drain in the freezer.write back with more info and let me know what you find and hopefully i can help you better.

Defrost the unit. The fridge section cannot cool if the freezer is iced over since the fridge gets its cold from the freezer. If you don't have a second fridge use a hair dryer to speed the defrost.

Fridge problem

I don't know about the hot points for sure, but all the maytags (I used to work for maytag) have a damper valve in the air tunnel that feeds cold air to the refrigerator. If the damper went bad, it would block cold air flow into the refrigerator. (assuming this model has a damper)

Maytag side by side freezer works, fridge does not

the heat is from the condensor keeping the door from frezzing shut it is normal but you need to adjust the food compartment contorl it might say for a for a coler frezzor turn up then you do and the food compartment gets warmer all it is is a air baffle to alow more cold air into the food compartment turn the cold control half way its the one that has off on it and then turn the other control to a lower number to make more cold go into the food compartment
