Is the freezer cooling, but not the refrigerator?
Or no cooling in either compartment?

I know it's simple but I have to ask -- but is the thermostat turned up? Sometimes someone will turn it down by mistake while pulling something out of the fridge.

What is the Maytag model number of the unit?

    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 temperature control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the
    fridge temperature.

    A lot of times, ice will build up if the freezer is overfilled or the automatic defroster is not working properly in this vent. Check the vent hole that leads from the freezer to the refrigerator to make sure this is not the case.

    If the freezer is cold and the fridge is not, the air is not circulating from the freezer to the fridge compartment as it should.

MAYTAG REFRIDGERATOR NOT COOLING


Check to see if the evaporator fan is blowing. Sometimes removing the back panel to expose the fan and hand turning it can make it come back on. If this doesn't work then the fan is bad. Also make sure that there is good circulation to the fridge side. Food can sometimes block air flow.
