Hello,

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.

Freezer works fine on my Maytag side-by-side refrigerator, but refrigerator is not cold enough, there is is ice accumulated inside the vent between the freezer and the frig., specially on humid days.


Defrost your fridge with a blowdryer in the freezer after you remove the freezer back panel. Get the ice out of your exhaust pipe going to fridge. Your evaporator fan should be running, either your defrost heater is bad or your defrost thermostat is bad. I ussually replace both. Good luck rate me if I am correct.

Maytag side by side freezer works, fridge does not


the heat is from the condensor keeping the door from frezzing shut it is normal but you need to adjust the food compartment contorl it might say for a for a coler frezzor turn up then you do and the food compartment gets warmer all it is is a air baffle to alow more cold air into the food compartment turn the cold control half way its the one that has off on it and then turn the other control to a lower number to make more cold go into the food compartment
