Temperature Problem - Amana (Maytag) Refrigerator Model AFD2535DES
Serial # 10939246EX. The temperature in the 2 door upper compartment is not holding. I normally set it at 4 (medium temp) but had to turn it up to the coldest - 7. Still not functioning. Having to throw out milk, dairy products, etc. This unit is not 2 years old. The freezer section is working just fine. I called Amana Customer Service and a recorded message came on telling me to call back Mon thru Friday. This is Saturday morning and I have been looking for the service manuals that came with the refrigerator, but still can't locate them. Any suggestions on what I need to do? I think the refrig is still under warranty.

Re: Temperature Problem - Amana (Maytag) Refrigerator...
This comes with a 1 yr warranty from date of purchase. Look and see if there is a thick frost buildup on the back panel in the freezer section. If no frost, shut the freezer door and feel for air flow out of the top middle vent in the fridge section. I would remove that vent cover to make sure the damper is open. If the damper is closed push it open then feel for air flow. If no air flow is detected then the evaporator fan motor is bad which is a very commom problem on this model, in fact the most common problem. If the damper is shut and when you hold it open you do feel air flow then the damper is bad. Let me know what you find.

Check the heater for the refridgerater, if you put the defrost into manual mode (turn the freezer switch to zero several times 2 ) it should go into defrost mode, the heater is located at the bottom of the evaporator (inside the freezer door). If it doesn't go on then the heater or the bimetalic unit are bad.

A fairly common problem! The official instructions are
Before using your dryer, wipe the dryer drum with a damp cloth to
remove dust from storing and shipping.
1. Load clothes loosely into the dryer and close the door. Do not
pack the dryer. Allow space for clothes to tumble freely.
2. Turn the Cycle Control knob to the recommended cycle for the type of load being dried. Use the Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (,) to dry most heavyweight and medium weight loads. See "Drying, Cycle, and Temperature Tips."
3. Select a temperature setting on models with a Temp/Fabric selector. The cycle descriptions include temperature setting suggestions.
4. Push the START button.
Stopping and Restarting
You can stop your dryer any time during a cycle.
To stop your dryer
Open the dryer door or turn the Cycle Control knob to OFE
NOTE: The Cycle Control knob should point to an Off area when
the dryer is not in use.
To restart your dryer
1. Close the door.
2. Select a new cycle and temperature (if desired).
3. Press START
if the door has been opened or used for a number of times ,that variation will be around normal
the system works like this
the fridge cools air from the bottom up as cold air falls to the bottom of the fridge
if the door is not being opened ( over night) the whole compartment becomes to the same temperature as set by the thermostat and that is when the fridge cuts of
Now if the door seals are leaking cold air out at the bottom then the whole compartment will never get to the same temperature ( your variation)
similarly if the door is constantly being opened , the cold air at the top of the compartment replaces the cold air at the bottom that has flowed out onto the floor on opening the door (again your variation)
so you have to possible items to check
1 are the door seals in top condition and 2 is the door being opened too much in short periods of time
Temperatures are preset at the factory at 38 degrees or 3 C in the refrigerator compartment and 0 degrees F or -18 C in the freezer compartment. Here is a link=> MFI2067AES User Manual to the user manual for your model that explains how to set the temperature, I am here should you have questions Thanks Sea Breeze

Hello your fridge should have a TEMP. DIAL located inside one of the doors or at the upper most portion of the fridge. You will need to adjust the dial to a warmer setting. Normally turning it COUNTER CLOCKWISE will increase the temp. You will notice the temp range by looking at the dial as it will be marked accordingly.
You can adjust the bake average temp +/- 35 degrees this is called calibration.
1. Press the BAKE pad (upper or lower
oven) and enter 550° F.
2. Press and hold the BAKE pad (upper or
lower oven) for several seconds until
TEMP ADJ is displayed.
3. Press the AUTO SET pad - each press
changes the temperature by 5° F. The
control will accept changes from -35° to
4. If the oven was previously adjusted, the
change will be displayed. For example,
if the oven temperature was reduced by
15° F, the display will show -15° F.
5. When you have made the adjustment,
press the CANCEL pad and the time of
day will reappear in the display. The
oven will now bake at the adjusted
Do this first and you will be back to normal. If your using a oven temp. checker make sure you let the oven cycle for awhile. Preheat should take about around 10min. Remember 350deg is an average temp.
Have a great day!
Door latch. Open and close the door to make sure the door latch is securely fastened
Hi-Temp Wash, Hi-Temp Rinse, or Sanitize options. Some models have options that may require a water heating delay, such as Hi-Temp Wash, Hi-Temp Rinse, or Sanitize. Additional time may be required to heat the water to the proper temperature. The dishwasher will continue to circulate water during this heating delay but the timer will not advance until the proper temperature is reached
either the evaporator coil behind the freezer compartment wall is iced over and you can';t move cold air over an iced up evaporator coil to cool the refrigerator compartment or the compressor relay/overload is bad
If the number is similar we will have to go with possibilities. Sound like the auto damper has frozen itself shut between the fresh food and freezer compartments. Some are controlled electrically some manually and others are controlled with a thermostat probe. Your thermostat for one side could be defective and not allowing the damper to open. Your refrigerator must have the correct model number to proceed. What I need you to do is look for the vent through the rear of the refrigerator compartment and sometimes leads directly from the same wall as freezer. Many Maytag brands fall under same series and model similarities. The serial number is not as important to the service Tech as the model number. Look around the door frame near floor and kick plate.I can help but I will need the correct model number, Thanks, Sea Breeze
Good day, Yes, they are made. The temperature in the fresh compartment will be no issue, since you have control in that compartment. The engineers designed the balance between the two compartments so the freezer would be normal if the following conditions applied. 1. The room temperature is between 70 and 90 degrees. 2. The machine has normal usage. I.E. 8 to 20 door openings of the fresh food door. The freezer would start getting warmer if the room temperature dropped much below 70 degrees. or.. If the machine had extremely light usage with very few door openings, or a combination of both situations described above.
With dual controls, and both set at normal, the above conditions would occur anyway, except you could over ride the normal settings to compensate.
Many people have this setup, and experience little trouble, but without knowing your life style replacing it would be your choice based on the facts given.
