    bas, you either have a defrost failure or the evap fan in the freezer section is not running. Open the freezer door and see if you can hear the fan running. Then check to see if the back panel in the freezer is full of frost. Start there and post back. Catriver.

My Maytag Refrigerator is not Cooling enough. My Freezer works fine and we have unplugged and let everything defrost and plugged back in but still not working properly. Model # is MFD2561HES


Its possible the evaporator fan is bad. Air is drawn from freezer to cool the refrigerator side and ultimately controlled by the fridge side thermostat. Or... Low freon.

Freezer works, frig doesn't


there is a fan on many newer units that blows cold air from the freezer side to the frig. If that fan is not working, the frig will be cool, but not 34° like you want it.

Freezer works great, but fridg. will not get below 50


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.

Everything in my frig is frozen

There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp .. I don't know what he was doing with the putty unless he was stopping up the vent which won't work because you have to have the air circulation for the fridge section to work. The fridge temp control may be the problem.

GE GSS25LSMFBS IS FINE IN THE FREEZER SIDE BUT FREEZES IN THE REFRIGERATOR SIDE.


Sounds like you need to adjust your airflow into the frig compartment. There are two adjustments for air flow on a side/side one at top next to thermostat and one at bottom next to crisper. If your freezer is working properly like you say then you just simply need to balance the airflow to get the proper temp of just above freezing to 40 degrees

Freezer is freezing but fridge is not cold as it was


Sounds like defrost timer is not putting the refrigerator in defrost every 8 hours. You freezer should be below -5 degrees. Also the condenser beneath the refrigerator possibly needs cleaning. First slowly turn the defrost timer clockwise until freezer goes in defrost. You should hear the sound of crackling noise in freezer after about one minute into defrost. If timer does not come out of defrost or does not turn itself then replace it. Let me know what you find, Thanks Sea Breeze
