There is a fan in the back of the freezer(my was made in Korea) that blows air up to the fridge. I had a service tech replace mine but I would do it myself if it happened again. Its not hard to get to and is easy to replace.

My refrigerator won't cool (freezer still working)

The temp sensor is the most likely cause of this problem. However, you have other possible options that you can test and check:

likely the problem with your fridge is a bad dumper control. This is a part which operates with the air flow from the freezer into the fresh food compartment.
The dumper control is located in the in the upper left corner in the fresh food compartment.

Refrigerator is not working, freezer is working

Sir, To solve this problem, you must open the compressor area at the back bottom of the refrigerator and chek the temperature of the pressure line. If the temperature is between 55celcius to 60 than its ok. Or else you need to change the refrigerant. I suggest you to contact the service authority.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

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 ..
Your damper and controls are on this diagram.

Maytag French Door MFD2561HEB water dispenser not working

We had the same issues with the water freezing and called a technician out. He added some extra insulation installed around the water lines inside the refrigerator and we also keep our frig at 40 degrees Fahrenheit, slightly above the manufacturers default setting. Hope this helps.
