Question about Maytag MZD2766GES Side by Side Refrigerator

Fridge not working, but freezer is

I have a side by side refrigerator. The freezer is working but the refrigerator is not. I have checked the doors and I also checked to make sure nothing is blocking the vents. I also unplugged it and then plugged it in again to see if it needed to be reset. The fridge is 6 years old and we have never had any problems before.

That would be a defrost problem....there are a few things it could be. There is a switch called a terminator switch that sits on the coils that should read closed when below 25 degrees. You can check the the continuity across the heating element that should read closed at all times....the last would be a defrost control board that sits on the refrigerator side very top right side( you need to remove a few screws to drop the top to get to it)that usually is what the problem is

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.

Fridge freezer over heating and is not cooling fridge section


It is normal for the middle strip to be hot. Did you check the temp setting in the fridge section?
Also - you might check for blockage in the bottom. Excessive dirt/dog hair can block the air flow.
Good luck
