First check the temperature level to see if it is set right ..cause when you shut it down you may also reset the temperature level ...and enter new values..Be sure the temperature is set a few degrees under the 32 F ..cause thats the water freezing point and if for the refrigerator it is ok to have about 35 ...or so ..for the freezer have to be way below for to be able to the 32 it is just the water freezing point and the water is in both liquid and ice form in that temp it will have to be under to freeze for good..
If all those ar eset ,,and it is plugged and seams to work but no cooling is present..than it is a issue of freon liquid ..needed in the installation ...probably a leak or something ..this can be done easy by a repair shop in professional conditions..

    if ti is a clasic refrigerator will be somewhere inside below the freezer..a round clock wise button that allow you to change it .See where the min and max are and if it has indicators ..put it somewhere in the middle ..usually there are guidance or temperatures written there ..
    If it is a digital one ..than you will have to set them from the main menu ..temperature ..

Have extra older Frig in th garage Mod 596.72232200

Sounds like a intermittent problem with the defrost timer. Sometimes they get stuck. Check continuity of the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. If both are good then replace the defrost timer, that should solve the problem.

Compressor is hot and I hear clicking in back every couple of minutes. I understand that this indicates that the compressor is in a locked up / no start condition. the overload cools enough to reset and...

Could be bad start/over load relay, or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 to 40 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off even though fan continues to run. When the start/over load relay fails, it can apply power to both the compressors start coil AND it's run coil at the same time for to long and it very quickly causes and over load situation. I bet your "Starting Components" (start/over load relay) are bad. Any decent appliance parts store will have what you need. Just take in the make, model, and serial number of tour frig.

Every Couple of Days water leaks out from under the freezer. I bought it from Home Depot about 2 months ago. What do I do now?

every 8 hours of cooling ( compressor run time ) which may be every cople of days the frig has a auto defrost . your unit may use a a d control so it may do it an any time it decides to defrost . when defrosting the water goes through a drain and under the frig to a holding pan . if pan is cracked or if drain hose is not in the pan it would leak .. it should be under warranty so i would call maytag and im shure they will correct the problem .. mope this helps mm ..majic **** ...

Frig side is not cooling.

Check if there is frost on the back wall of the freezer, if so it is not defrosting. Many GE fridges need a new defrost heater every couple of years. If it's not defrosting, you can get by for a while by unplugging the fridge and leaving the freezer door open for 24 hrs, then plugging back in.
