Question about Maytag Admiral Top-Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Freezer portion doesn't freeze.

I have an Admiral Refrigreator/Freezer (top) model HMG 19145. The refrigerator works fine, however, the freezer has quit (doesn't freeze food). I assume that if the frig still works, it must be related to the freezer componet (temp selector ?) Is it fixable or will it be less expenseivve to replace the appliance?

My Admiral freezer is cold but not freezing. The fridge seems fine but food in the freezer is thawing.

See if the coil is clean, if not, vacuum and brush the coil clean.
That should make diagnosis much easier.
