    I have the same problem with the elevator shelf and almost all of the shelves on the Maytag Plus. Right now everything is out of the frig, except for the bottom drawers. The cold control section freezes food even when it is turned down.

Let me just say, your post helped me, because I realized that I was not going crazy.  But, I was able to find the manual on this frigerator, which was key.  There was one phrase in the manual that gave me help - "when the glass shelf is pushed to the rear, it will align the rear latches.
Manual from whirlpool website: http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/MSB2154ARA.pdf

So, the rear latches must be installed in such a way that the sliding glass shelf not only touches them, but pushes them into the correct position.
This fact helped me to try different positions, each time testing to see if the glass shelf would do anything.  Finally, I realized that there is a triangular shaped part of the rear latch.  The hypotenuse of the triangle is what comes into contact with the little nub on the underside of the glass shelf.  The nub on the glass shelf pushes the rear latch along the hypotenuse of the right triangle, and into the correct position.
Here is a picture of it installed in my frigerator,which I am sure will tell it better than any words:

    So where do the little blue clips go?

    I would like to add only one thing: when you're replacing the shelf, any shelves above it must be removed because the elevator shelf needs to be threaded onto the metal tracks on the back wall inside the refrigerator. And the way to do that is at the top of the tracks, where they stop before reaching the top of the interior cabinet.

How do I change Bang & Olufsen Beosound 2000 door belt?


I just did that ; took an 031 oring or was it an 032; and you have to pull the whole drive mech out; it is tricky and if your not small mech inclined don\'t do it; There is a few gears and they work in tandem so when you put it back together it has to be just right; if you take it out take pictures of it as you take it apart because you will never remember how it goes back together; easy to get out; a pain to put back together. And it will all come apart just to put that oring in.

I am getting an E3 Error message on my temp


Do this...

The e3/e4 problem is the "connectors" for the fans to the middle separator shelf are put in the pathway of condensation. This causes them to get wet and rust. PLEASE NOTE: If you decide to attempt this fix, you take full responsibility for your fridge and the outcome. If you don’t think you can do this…DON’T! Call a licensed electrician. Here is how I resolved my e3 issue: 1) Unplug the fridge
2) Remove all wine and the metal shelves
3) Remove the 2 screws from the middle separator shelf, one on each side on top
4) Remove the 4 screws from the backboard, one in each corner
5) Slide out the middle shelf slowly, on the right hand side towards the front of the shelf there will be 4 connectors you must disconnect before removing the shelf (they are tucked into the shelf). With one hand on the backboard and one on the shelf, slowly take them out together
6) Once you have the backboard and shelf out, you'll see there is a black and white connector, each having a red and black wire on each side
7) These are the fan connectors that are causing the issue. Mine were brown/green and damp (not good for electricity)
8) Using wire cutters, cut as close as possible to the "black" connector on each side to remove it. You will have 4 wires left, 2 from the backboard and two from the shelf (both having a red and black)
9) Take some of the sheath (cover) off of each wire
10) Take the red wire from the backboard and the red wire from the shelf and twist the metal portion together
11) Cover w/ electrical tape!!! Or you will have the same e3/e4 issue
12) Repeat step 10 and 11 for the black wires
13) Move onto the "white" connector and repeat steps 8 - 12
14) Put the backboard and shelf back in the fridge. Be careful not to pull the backboard and shelf apart or your connection may come apart
15) As you slide the shelf in, make sure the wires you disconnected in step 5 are in the "channel" on the side of the shelf or the shelf won't slide properly.
16) Reattached the 4 connectors and then re-attach the backboard and the shelf with the screws
17) Plug the fridge back in
18) Put the metal shelves and wine back in

Taken from another poster at Home Depot reviews and similiar to what others have found...

" Sucks that a $0.10 piece of heatshrink on the connectors could avoid this...? Bad Design.

Top shelf not getting clean


It sounds like the hose at the rear of the top shelf has come unconnected. Pull the top shelf out when the washer is empty and take a look. If the hose has come apart you should be able to push it back together. Good luck with it.
