Hi

The frost on the coils again indicate that there is some issue with the defrost system. As you mentioned that you have changed the Thermostat then the other thing to check for is Adaptive defrost control. This can be checked by opening up the control assembly. Snap out the adaptive defrost to release the clamps located near the assembly. Now, remove out the whole assembly and take out the 4 prong plug from the Adaptive defrost control. You can check out part # (Adaptive defrost Control system, part #13 in diagram)---

If the timer is burnt or the connections are cut then you'll need to replace the timer. However, wheYou can buy the part from this link---

Please post back for any further assistance. If you are satisfied please do accept the solution.

Refridgerator will not cool. Freezer works fine. Noticed a pool of water on floor then started to cool again. after a few days quit cooling.


Check the water drain hole in bottom of unit. If plugged water cannot get to catch and pan and evaporate with the heating element.

Freezer working, but refridgerator is not cold. The fan works.


You most likely have a failure in the defrost circuit. One or more of thee possibilities: Heating element, defrost timer and/or defrost thermostat.

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.

Both the Freezer and the Refridgerator quit working...


Do you have ice build up on the back wall in the freezer? If so you have whats called a defrost problem. (can be timmer, adc, heating element or thermostat)... All cold air in you fridge side come from the freezer, therefore if you have ice build up behind back wall in freezer it is blocking air flow....
