Do you hear the fan running in the freezer? Use a small flat blade screwdriver and gently insert in to the freezer center curved grille at either end to release, there is a center tab too at the bottom, you will see the fan blade, if it is not turning, rotate it by hand to see if it spins freely. If the fan blade is spinning very slow or not spinning at all, most likely this is your issue. You can test the white and blue wires at the fan plug for 110 volts AC. If the fan is rotating at much faster speed, check for excess ice/frost on the white freezer cover that the curved grille snaps into. Excess frost/ice could be an indication of a defrost issue caused by more than one failed part. Defrost failures can be caused by a failed defrost thermostat, heating element, or the Jazz control located in the fridge which is the digital display. Pleazer Appliance...

There could be a number of problems, you need to have your refridgerator topped up, or your elliment went, another solution, check to make sure that nothing is blocking the fan in your freezer

Defrost the fridge, take everything out of freezer and turn off for at least a day, check the drain is clear after defrosted and try again, if it happens again you may need a new defrost heater of timer.

Check to see if you have frost on the back panel of your freezer in your fridge. If you do your coil is frozen over and you'll have to defrost your freezer. I just did mine cause mine wasn't cooling properly on my fridge side.

SOURCE: maytag mff2557hew fridge not cooling. Freezer ok.

Sounds like the Freezer Fan is wearing out or is worn out. This fan problem is very hard to detect. The reason is that when the motor is starting to wear out the fan will spin, but at a much lower rpm. This is enough to keep the freezer cold. but will not ciculate enough air thru the freezer and the refrigerator to prevent freezer from and refrigerator from cooler. The cost to repair/replace this fan is a minimum of $300.00

Testimonial: "Your solution was right on the mark! The fan was spinning but not fast enough (according to my repair guy). Thanks again!"

you have a defrost problem, could be bad adaptive defrost board,t-stat heater,when you open freezer door listen for fan if fan is blowing check the t-stat,look at it and see if it has a buldge on it,sometime you can see this and tell it's bad,you'll need a meter to read out the heater and other parts to see whats bad,might be a good idea to call a tech to do this,when you find problem you have to melt everything out again
