Check the back wall of the freezer section for signs of frost build-up. If the freezer coil is frozen from a fault in the defrost system your refrigerator will be the first to show signs of not cooling.

Hotpoint frost free fridge freezer the fridge not working but freezer is


Hi Reginald

Most refrigerator / freezer units chill the fridge area by venting some fraction of the very cold air from the freezer into the fridge compartment through a channel that has a mechanical air valve in it. In this way, it can control the chilled air flow, and aim for the set temperature, all the way down, in some cases, to freezing, or even colder, on the fridge side.

That vent unit, depending on your model, sill be somewhere in the wall that separates the freezer from the fridge. What can happen is that moisture condenses into the louver that slides to control the airflow, it freezes, and then system is stuck, since it's cold on the freezer side, and this keeps the louver frozen stuck. If that is the case, shutting the unit off for a while may recover function, though getting it to where ice is melting in an interior wall may be more risk of food spoilage than you'd want. Otherwise, use a search engine to look for 'how to test freezer / refrigerator vent in make/model', and you'll likely come across all sorts of youtube and step-by-step tutorials.

Good Luck!

My Maytag Plus refrigerator does not work, lack of frost, cold. The freezer side is working fine.


Need to see if the damper is open inside the fridge.  This the vent in to top left hand corner.  If it is not open then the damper needs to be replaced.  If it is open then one of the return vents (lower part of fridge) is blocked/plugged.  Let me know what you find.

Fridge works fine freezer doesnt freeze


Have it serviced/checked.

There is only one cooling unit in the refrigerator. It is rejecting enough heat to keep the fridge cool but not enough to keep the freezer cold.

The fridge does not seem to be cold.


if just the refrige isnt cold,check the damper door located between the freezer and refrige compartments and see if its open to let in cold air from freezer,if not sometimes they freeze shut and cant operate with temperature setting changes/if nothings cold,then replace the ptc overload relay located on the compressor body,it just unplugs off the compressor

Maytag plus MSD2756GEQ ice maker not working


I had similar problem in that the fan in the freezer that blows freezing air into freezer and over to fridge was not working. Fridge was running warm (over 40 deg and freezer up near 20) Service call around $160 with new fan.

No air flow at all means Fan is not working. Also check damper between freezer and fridge.
