    Maytag MTB2156GES Top freezer doesnt work, but the fan inside the freezer does. This happened on christmas eve and have kept the fridge on all the time, hoping that whatever went wrong might just fix itself. Have called for service and they're closed for the holidays. I took everything out of the freezer, cleaned it dry and hoping for the best.

is there air coming out of the freezer vent inside the freezer? If not, then there is ice built up on the fan. Let me know if there is air blowing in the freezer or not.

Refridgerator will not cool. Freezer works fine. Noticed a pool of water on floor then started to cool again. after a few days quit cooling.

Check the water drain hole in bottom of unit. If plugged water cannot get to catch and pan and evaporate with the heating element.

Water accumulated under crisoer drawers and leaking onto floor.

That water is coming from your freezer during the defrost cycle. Normally there is a drain in your freezer that goes to a cup in your refrigerator and through the back of your refrigerator through a drain tube which extends down to a drip pan. If this tube gets plugged up, water will overflow in the cup and leak at the back wall of your refrigerator and through the holes that lead to the crisper's floor area. If you can remove the cup and using a wire dislodge anything blocking the drain, clean the cup of any debris and check your freezer drain for any obstruction causing water backing up and leaking !
