Question about Maytag Admiral Top-Freezer Refrigerator
I have a whirpool refrigerator with the freezer on top. The freezer is working fine but there's no cold air going down to the refrigerator portion. I've already defrosted and I continue to have the same problem.
This setup uses a fan to push air around to distribute the cold air.
It sounds as if your fan isn't running anymore.
It may not be a lot of fun to access it for replacement or lubrication which might be the problem. This type of fan motor normally uses a phosphor-bronze bearing with graphite embedded and while they shouldn't ever need oil, this type of bearing has tendency to get sticky over time eventually jamming the motor shaft.
Modern motors are 'impedence protected' so they don't 'burn up' anymore but do get hot.
What you might try is to check Sears parts section to see if your model is listed for replacement parts (they sell parts for about every US brand) and they may have an illustration of your fridge that shows you how you can access the fan.
