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! Mike

The fan that blows air down to the fridge might not be working or fan is cover with ice and or the air duct going down that blow air to the fridge is clogged. I can suggest you turn off the unit until the ice melts at the coil. Make sure you have a big cooler to put your things, this might take a lot of time.

Freezer works great lower part is 50 degrees. why?


When that happened to my fridge the evaporator in the rear of the freezer was a solid block of ice and no air was flowing down the vent into the fridge. A part was replaced and the engineer removed all the ice with a heat gun. Has worked fine for the last 4 years.

Frigidaire frs26lh5dso freezer works great, fridge side is warm.


make sure door to refrigerator is all the way up, so when it is closed it turns the cooling part on. I have to check mine all the time and screw it up if it's down, which is quite often. Mine is a side by side and I just make sure it's even with the top of refrigerator and even with the freezer door.

Frigidaire 16.5cu top mount not cooling fridge. freezer is froze


The baffle that opens to allow cooling into the refrigerator may be blocked, broken or mis wired. These units work by just cooling the freezer and then blowing some cold air into the refrigerator whenever the fridge thermostat calls for it. The fridge's thermostat is trying to cool the refrigerator but something is preventing the cool air from getting to the refrigeration part, that's why it's freezing up the freezer

Refrigerator is out but freezer still works


Hello dan_2137
Welcome,

You said, overloaded freezer may have caused fan to go out? Is this possible? Cleaned dust from compressor and shut off to let it cool down but it is still not working

Yes It's possible. If the freezer is so packed full where the packages cover the air vents in the rear of the freezer.
The freezer and the fridge share the cold air and this is the first think we look for if the fridge is warm and the freezer cold, And the fan works nonstop rather than cycling off and on!

What is the model number and year of your fridge!
Waiting your response.
