    I found nothing blocking the vents up top but when I removed the drawers down below I found a rectangular vent with a plastic flapper over it. When I removed the flapper i could see lots of ice build up.

Need to see if the damper is open inside the fridge.  This the vent in to top left hand corner.  If it is not open then the damper needs to be replaced.  If it is open then one of the return vents (lower part of fridge) is blocked/plugged.  Let me know what you find.

    The only thing that can cause those vents to ice up is warm air getting in the fridge.  Check the door gaskets for any gaps or tears where warm air could get in.  In some cases it's possible a door was left cracked open for too long.  You can try to defrost the vent with a hair dryer.  This is what is causing your problem.  The cold air cannot circulate with that vent blocked.  If you can't get it all you may need to unplug the fridge until it is totally defrosted.

Maytag plus refrigerater not cold enough

If the freezer is cold and the refrigerator is warm, the unit is probably not going into defrost. Remove the back inside of the freezer and see if all frosted up. If so thaw with a hair dryer and replace the adaptive defrost assembly located inside the back of the refrigerator section. Up on the ceiling of the ref where you adjust the temp. remove thc cover by putting your fingers in the back holes and pull forward. Make sure the ref is unplugged. Remove two 1/4" head screws in the front and two phillip head screws by the lights. One 1/4" head screw straight in the back. The defrost timer is located in the far right corner. A small board 2 to 3" square. It will unplug and is probably screwed in.

Freezer not freezing

Check the back wall of the freezer section for signs of frost build-up. If the freezer coil is frozen from a fault in the defrost system your refrigerator will be the first to show signs of not cooling.
