Bought this new and since new the wall between fridge and freezer stays very hot. Have always had an issue with produce "freezing" in fridge main unit, or produce drawer. never could control. Freezer is the best...stays very cold...but so does fridge LOL! We have adjusted setting.
I am afraid of fire and frustrated with loosing leafy produce way too quickly. Items that may be "cold sensitive" we place on outside wall of unit, instead of next to freezer.
Way too many issues for the price.
The season after we purchased they appeared to disappear from retail...at least in our market. Did Maytag realize there was an issue?

the higher the number on a fridge the warmer it is so setting it to 1 is close to 0C
when working on a fridge or freezer always turn it off at the wall
if the fridge is keep cold but not cold enough set it back to say 3
if the compressor is running and the back fins / wall is hot then the fridge is working
use a piece of paper between the door seal and the fridge edge to ensure that it is sticking to the fridge and sealing off properly
take out all the food out of the freezer,unplug the fridge and get a hair dryer and start melting out all the ice in the freezer,then blow the hot air into the vent holes on the back wall until you don't see any more water dripping down through the slots in the back wall.turn the machine back on,open the fridge door after around 5 or 10 minutes and if you feel cold air blowing into the fridge you fixed the problem,if you don't feel cold air keep hitting the inside back wall with the hair dryer and keep blowing the hot air into the holes in the back wall.all that it does is the freezer gets cold and there's a fan behind the back wall in the freezer,the fan blows the cold air into the fridge side,if the air ducts are frozen the air can't circulate into the fridge section so you have to melt the ice out so the cold air can blow from the freezer to the fridge.good luck,if you have another fridge remove the food and unplug it and leave the doors open for a day and it will melt out.good luck
clean the coils and make sure the fan by the compressor is running fast enough . this will cause the unit to run to hot if dirty and the wall between should be hot it has a hot tube running through it .. but if comp is too hot so is the wall ..mm
You either have obstructed coils (lots o dust) under the fridge or the fan that is supposed to draw air across them has ceased to work. Check the coils and clean as necessary, and check the fan. Maybe you will get lucky and find something caught in it. If the fan is not working, leave the back cover off the fridge and put a small window or box fan back there until you can get the fan replaced. The fan will keep the fridge running for you in the meantime.
chances are the evaporator coils (behind the back freezer wall) are icing up and must be thawed out. this is from too much moisture freezing to the coils (door left open in hot weather, drain plugged, or fridge filled before letting it chill for a day empty and on). take back wall off and use warm water or a hair dryer (only until ice melts- do not overheat metal) to melt the ice. soak up excess water from under fridge, too. also check to see if the fan is working.
Hi......... Folow these steps. It's worth a try. 1.Pull
the fridge out from the wall and unplug it. 2. Clean the dust and lint off
the compresser and everything else. 3. Also clean under the fridge. 4. The
frame around the freezer door should cool down.
If the cooling fan was stuck , that may also be a cause for your refrigerator wall becoming hot.Check that too. Hope My info is useful....Bye
Sounds like the damper isn't opening. Put you hand on the Left wall of the fridge side, at the top. If you feel No Air. Then there is your issue. Bad Damper Motor. Also check the back wall of the freezer, there sould be No Frost. If there is then you have a defrost issue. Not a damper problem. One more thing. Make sure when you shut the fridge door, the light goes out. About a half inch or so before the door is completly shut, the light will go out, if not then thats your issue. Let me know how you make out.
