Before any attempt, make sure the door is sealing all the way. If there's a leak in the seal, things will frost up. You can find a leak by listening carefully for a whistling seal. Also make sure the refrigerator is level. this are the first thing to be chrck.

Take care.

    the probelm the the freezer is working fine, but not the Refrigerator.

    if I open the freezer door, I can feel the cold wind going througn to the Refrigerator, if I close the freezer door, the cold wind stopped going through, feel the cycling system is not working OK.

    Please advise.

    Inspect the gasket for dirt or debris that could prevent
    it from
    sealing. If you find any, remove the large debris, then wash the gasket,
    using a scrub brush and warm, soapy water.

    Check the gasket for
    cracks or tears that can let cold air escape. If
    you find any, replace the gasket. If the gasket appears to be solid, go
    on to step 3.
    Check the seal: Open the door, insert a dollar bill
    partway and shut the
    door on the bill. Try to pull out the bill. You should feel some
    resistance. Repeat the test at several points around each door. If the
    bill slips out easily, replace the gasket.

    If there is any
    circuit breaker, reset it.

    Check for thermostat problems. It
    could be off or won't cool properly
    (too warm,). If it can't be fixed with a simple adjustment,
    call a professional.

    Check for coil problems. The compressor can
    overheat due to dust
    buildup on condenser coils. If so, vacuum the coils.

    The above
    are the likely problem and the solution.

    Take care.

The freezer fan runs continuosly

It may be because there is some air leak into the freezer. Check if it is closed air tight. Also try defrosting the freezer. Check the fan after that. It may stop working continuously.

Regrigerator stopped, now freezer too.

It is due to the defrost timer is not working. Once it is replaced, you should be good for another year. The information is given by the repairman. I have this replaced two days ago. The MayTag part number is: 61005988.

Refrigerator will not get cold, but freezer works

Do you know if the compressor in the back is running? If you can check that out get back to me and we can go from there. Most times if the fan in the freezer is running the defrost timer is ok.
