Sounds like the evap fan is not running. The fan takes cold air from the freezer to cool the refer compartment. If the freezer is cold the compressor is running. Generally the freezer will stay cold since the cooling coils are there but it must have the fan working to get the air up to the refer area. Pull everything out the freezer and take the back panel off to view the coils and fan, etc. It's a simple easy job to change the fan. If you find the coils are a total block of ice then it's another problem... the defrost cycle isn't working. Sooo... see if the fan is running in the freezer compartment first. See http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/AA43-57.gif for fan location, item 18 is the fan motor. Let us know what you find out.

Your door switch is bad. When doors are opened, the fan stops. No cooling. When it closes, fan starts. Bulb is just an indicator of no power to unit...probably burned out contact in switch.

Simple fix! A small puddle of water near the fridge led me (indirectly) to this fix. Our model is a fridge only, no ice or water dispenser and nothing spilled inside. Upon closer inspection I found a narrow tray along the back wall above the crisper drawers with a drain hose leading under the unit. Apparently it's a condensate drain, a plugged one at that! I cleaned it out, yuk, and soon discovered it serves a dual purpose... as a vent to help relieve the pressure from the vacuum created immediately after closing the door. It has renewed our love affair with this fridge. Hoo Hoo!
