It sounds like you are definatly having A voltage problem. It also sounds like it affecting the whole house. This could be a transformer issue a power company supply issue or a fuse/breaker issue. I am an electrician and have been for 13 yrs. That being said call a professional. Without being there and seing what your looking at it is nearly impossible to safely walk you through checking your voltage. 120/240 kills more people every year than any other voltage and thats what is in your home. Please trust me if you don't know let it be call a electrician and play it safe I live in pa so I am not trying to get work just want you to be safe.
refrigerators come in three types: with the freezer on the top, with the freezer on the bottom, and with the freezer and refrigerator next to each other, also called a "side-by-side." When Plus refrigerator won't get or stay cold, troubleshoot it at home before calling for service to save time and money. Always use and adjust your refrigerator, according to manufacturer's instructions to prevent voiding your warranty or causing further damage.
Check the air vents on the refrigerator. These are located at the bottom and normally blow out warm air. If the air vents are blocked or clogged with hair and dust, the refrigerator won't run efficiently and cool food properly. Unblock the vents or clean them with a brush or cloth to remove the hair and dust.
Check to make sure the refrigerator and freezer doors are both completely closed. Keep the doors closed for a while. The temperature in the refrigerator can warm up if the door is being opened too frequently. Make sure all the food is placed fully within the refrigerator and all the shelves are pushed all the way back to the back wall to keep them from propping the door partially open.
After all your home troubleshooting efforts have failed, call Maytag or the retailer who sold you the refrigerator for service options. Have your receipt and warranty paperwork handy.

From your description , the main control board shorted . This is the electronic board behind the refrig , behind the small 8 X 10 panel . All individual parts , fans , display board , dispensor board etc , are wired directly to the control board . It is easily replaceable with 6-8 sets of plugins . WR55X10942 is the part number .
