Hi, With the information you supplied i'm going to assume there is an ice build up at the rear of the freezer. Your problem is going to be with your defrost system. I will also assume you have the ability to repair this yourself. This is going to be one of three problems with your refridgerator, 1st thing to do is remove shelfs and panel in the back of the freezer...you should see ice build up on the evaporator...don't worry get a hair dryer and melt the ice. Next locate the wires for the heater...using a multi meter test the heater for condinuity...if the heater is bad replace it, If the heater is good replace the defrost thermostat..the stat normally is a barrel looking part clipped onto the evaporator pipe. The last possible problem could be the evaporator fan, have you heard the fan running in the past few hours?..if you are not sure pull the panel out to where you can see fan and watch it over an hour to see if it turns. I have included links with pictures of what the parts you need to check are: http://romulusappliance.com/manufacturers/maytag/refrigerators/575432.JPG defrost stat http://www.hotekalliance.com/UploadFiles/2008627111553382.jpg heaters http://www.applianceblog.com/archives/EvapMotor1018185.jpg evap fan. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. If you decide to get a repair guy in should not cost you any more then $120 - $200 depending on make/model/problem Good luck! P.s Please don't forget to rate my solution Thanks!

Fridges stops working randomly but the freezer works. Then the fridge starts working after a couple of days


When the fridge stops working, can you hear the fan operating inside the unit? It sounds like you have a failing evaporator fan motor. This fan motor circulated cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator.

A COUPLE THINGS U SAY FREEZER IS FINE FRIDGE IS NOT? THE FAN NOISE MAY BE DUE TO ICE BUILD UP DUE TO A DEFECTIVE BAD DEFROST TERMINATOR. WHICH EVENTUALLY WILL BUILD ICE UP IN FREEZER AND FRIDGE? HINDER COLD AIR CIRCULATION. ANOTHER THING TO LOOK AT IS UR FREEZER AND FRIDGE THERMISTORS AND UR COLD CONTROL THERMOSTAT. EVEN UR AIR FLOW DAMPER CONTROL VENT AND KNOB SETTINGS? ARE THEY TO FAR OPEN OR CLOSED? ARE U ABLE TO HEAR THE FAN AND COMPRESSOR RUNNING? ANY CLICKING SOUNDS?

Sorry to hear about your problem. Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice on it. If not. you have other issues
Here is a list of some things that can go wrong.
1. Defective heat coil
2. Defective defrost timer
3. Defective defrost sensor
You should call a service company to resolve your issue.

Loud buzzing noise from inside Jenn Air 2389G fridge


i don't know jennair specifically being from england.
however, there is often a fan inside the back panel and the noise you heard was the fan hitting ice. the reason now not heard and fridge not working may be that the ice has built up so much the fan is jammed
