    relay was the problem, replaced and unit is working fine. figured it out for myself - thanks anyway...btw, unplugging the unit will not protect you from a charged capacitor!!!

    Fridge is beeping intermittently even after hours of no beeping, and is not creating ice. which of the 3 backbuttons to control temp do i press. 
    how do i   stop the beeping and gain ice control again?

    Thanks for the great info. I found this too late but I'm nort sure I could have replaced myself anyway. The Maytag Performa Top Bottom fridge we have is only 6 years old and yesterday, the freezer items had frost all over them. And the fridge temp went up to around 50 degrees but the fans were running though. We heard a clicking sound on the bottom rear of the fridge but 10 seconds later, we heard the click again and that was it.

    A guy came today and diagnosed it as the compressor starting unit after about 5 minutes. Then charged us 175 bucks, took about 8 minuted to fix the unit and went on his way.

If compressor is hot that means comp- is trying to start but the relay /overload is bad allow comp to cool down unplug from wall and replace with exact type 1/2hp 1/4hp 1/3hp etc make sure all wireing is correct and unplug before starting that model may or may not have a run or start capacitor replace it also..

Kenmore side-by-side freezer is fine but fridge is not


Yes, Airflow is what cools the frig. Check for frost buildup on the coils indicating a problem in the defrost components r a fan not running fast enough. Eric

Only the freezer side is working


I don't think the darkness is related to the fridge not being cool. The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp
OR
..
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Freezer to cold refrigerator not cold enough


sounds like your defrost timer is not working properly . Most fridge/freezers the fridge gets cooled from the cool air from the freezer . But when the defrost timer is not working properly the section between the fridge and freezer freezes up and hence doesnt allow the flow of cool air into the fridge. The defrost timer can be easily replaced.
