Could be a bunch of things but here are a few that I can think of, best thing in this case is to have a a appliance tech come out and physcially look at it:

Sounds like the compressor may need more freon in it, that could be low or completely out and if it is, that would cause the freezer and the fridge to run hot.

Could also be a leak in the line and that would cause the freon to run out. Meaning that either the line would need to be repaired or replaced and then the compressor being charged with freon.

Worst case scenario compressor is bad and needs to be replaced.

keep in mind parts go bad for many reasons so also keep in mind its not anything that you did, anything electronic can go at anytime for any reason.

First, call your fridge vendor for service.
*** the following is for information only. ***
* You need a full defrosting as there is ice in your cooling coils.
* Move food items to another refrigerator.
* Do a complete DEFROST of the box. (unplug it.) Expect it to take 4 or more hours. You must wait till all water stops dripping out of the fridge. Keep checking the lower defrost drip tray at bottom of fridge. Dump out water from tray as needed. DO NOT you a hair drier or any other heat source! The heat will warp the plastic. Use a small fan to gently blow into the freezer section.
* DO NOT use an ice pick or sharp object to remove ice! Just let everything melt. (The problem of ice is inside the coils)
* Plug in Fridge but don't put any food in. Set dial temperature to the Mid range setting. Set to freezer venting to normal. Set the refrigerator to mid range. Let it cool down to 0 - 10 degrees and start making ice (in ice maker) If it does not cool down to at least 10 degrees F then call for service. Suspect bad thermostat, Blocked condenser coils, Bad pump, etc. Qualified service tech required to repair.
* Cooling okay? Reload food but don't stuff it in. Leave space between the walls to allow cold air to flow around foods. It will take a day or so to cool down food properly. Note: I may take longer if this fridge is near a heat source like a Hot water heater, Oven, Range, Steam radiator, etc.
* If your still icing up in 2-3 weeks. Then check if the coils are icing up. Defrost is not working. This needs to be checked by a tech. Have him perform annual maintenance.
* Check door seals. Kids leaving the door open? High humidity? * Note how everyone uses the fridge; are they putting hot food in it? Open hot steaming food adds heat and humidity to fridge. Hot food with thaw out other frozen food and build up frost.
* Final, Have a Tech check your fridge. Have them perform maintenance and replace worn items as needed.

Fridge temperature too hot won't go down with temperature controls


This looks like there is a problem with thermstat in the fridge. We had a fridge that would not cool and we found it to be the thermastat problem. You have to replace the thermstat on the fridge. Not 100% sure but a high possibility.

Your fan has stopped working. You need to either replace it or see if your defrost timer is working.

My 2 month old Amana Refridgerator with Freezer on


If your sure about spoiled food. Spoiled lemons are one of the worst, and the machine has not been abused, it's a problem of the selling dealer. Fan motors have been known to create an odor when their windings start to burn. Plastic items that become detached from the interior cabinet and wind up laying on the defrost heater which gets very hot during defrost is another, however, I would demand a service call (free) since everything on it is under warranty. Make sure it's creating the odor when the tech shows up.

Both Fridge and Freezer quit working properly at the same time.


I will need the model number as shown in photo below where the locations are most likely to be. While I am waiting I am going to go over some models like yours to see what may possibly be wrong.

Maytag Fridge (Model # MZD2766GEW) not cooling


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.

Fridge - with freezer on top


Check the bottom refrigerator door gasket for any possible spilled food or drink that may have leaked onto it. Clean this area with warm soapy water. It may solve your problem. Also check under the drawers and make sure there is nothing there. If there is a drain under the drawers clean it and put some hot water with bleach into it to flush it out.
