This is caused by a defrost problem, most likely a bad heater($44.66+sh part# 12 under freezer compartment diagram PS2061407 ). If the heater is good ( has continuity) the defrost assy ($66.22+sh part# 13 under controls diagram PS2061226 )will be bad. Go to www.partselect.com and enter your model number. It will bring up diagrams of your unit. This will show you where the parts are located and what they look like. Either one is easy to replace. Once you click on the part you need, it will take you to a sight that gives you the price and also below that it will have where people have changed the part and how to do so. Good luck and have a great day.

Maytag MSD2556AEW; Fridge and freezer not cold


Hi,
Without actually putting gauges on the system to see what is really going on, I would say that your compressor has failed. There is a good chance that it is something inside that has broken. Turning it off and back on will give it another life sometimes but like youexperienced it is usually short lived.
I assume that you have checked that the condenser fan is running underneath the fridge. Also that the condenser coils are not completely plugged with dirt. These things can also make your firdge od wierd things...
This should give you a couple of things to checkout, but I fear that the compressor is bad and you will need to replace it or get a new refrigerator. If you choose to replace the compressor get a full price quote before the work is done, as it may not be worth doing if you have an older refrigerator.

I hope that this helps you to solve your problem.

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Freezer is working good but the frige is 52


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.

The fridge on my fridge freezer has stopped


just about all friges work off the frezer .the evap fan moves the air fromthe frezer to the frig.so you would here fan noise.i dont know your brand but on most frezers if you turn the frezer temp to the highest setting thats acomplished by keeping the air from going to the frige.hence warmer frig temps .also make sure fan on out side back is working and condenser is clean.again turn air damper control from frezer to frige to lowest setting .somthimes this could be in frig section.God bless ,tom

Bottom Freezer working but not side!


Typically the freezer air is circulated into the frige area to provide cooling. If the circ. fan is not working or the air ducts/channels/dampers are blocked with ice, food, etc. then no cool air will get from the freezer to the frige area. Check all the air channels and to see if the dampers are open along with the circulation fan running. The diagrams at the following link should help you see inside better. If your lower circulation fan is running then you likely have an air return/supply channel blocked with ice and will require an old style defrost (unplug unit and leave doors open for 24 hours to melt ice, etc.). If the fan isn't running then that needs to be replaced. Air channels can freeze up if a door is left open slightly overnight or other moisture enters the freezer/frige. http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=ER6AHKXPQ&searchTerm=&RefineSearch=0
