The refrigerator is warm (55) and the freezer is cold (-5)


Sounds like a defrost heater has gone out. If the frost is in the back of the freezer, it will get worse and worse until it stops cooling. You can either unplug the unit for 12 hours, let all the frost melt and then turn it back on. Or replace the defrost heater.

Refrigerator stopped cooling but the freezer still works fine


you should have sent the model number so i could look up your machine,open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing in the freezer?if not you have a bad evap fan motor,if the fan is good you could have a bad damper located in the fridge section,all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,the evap fan blows the cold air over into the fridge section,it could just go through an air duct or through a damper,if there is a damper most likely this is your problem or check the back inside wall of the freezer and see if there's any frost on it,you could have a defrost problem or the door could have been left open and the air ducts frose up,also if the freezer is on top you could have a blocked drain in the freezer and the air ducts are iced up,look under the crisper draws to see if any water is under them if so the drain is blocked.these are the things to check,if you send the model number and a little more info i can help you out better

Maytag MSD2651HEW refrigerator not cool, freezer works fine. If open both doors, feel cold air blowing in refrigerator side


try keeping the freezer door shut while felling for cold air blowing over to refrigerator side..if so problem lies in the thermostat...its not sensing the correct temp for the fridge side and closing the damper too early...also check to see if there is frost built up on the back wall of the freezer section if thats the case then you are at the begining stages of a defrost issue and soon no cold air will blow over to fridge side..let me know what you find

MSD2454GR Side by Side refrigerator- freezer side fine, refrigerator side will not cool below 50 degrees; lots of condensation


If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat.


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

NO COLD AIR BLOWING TO REFRIGERATOR


The fan in the freezer blows its air through the COILS in the freezer. If the coils are plugged with frost, there will be no breeze coming into the fresh food compartment. One other thing i have seen on Amana and Sears, is that the fan slips on the motor shaft. Make sure the fan blade is tight on the shaft.

The refrigerator is not keeping tempurature. Freezer is working fine


Either the freezer fan has stopped blowing air or the defrost timer has stopped and the airways to the fridge are clogged with ice. Only the freezer gets cold in a refrigerator. The fridge part gets cold by cold air being blown through air passages from the freezer. Good Luck!!

Bottom of freezer/fridge only getting cold.


Thre is a fan inside the freezer which circulates the cold air around both the fridge and the freezer compartments.
You should be able to feel cold air blowing around the inside, particularly at the top of the freezer.
If the defrost thermostat fails open, the internal fan (depending on freezer) will stop and this can be the cause of the freezer being warm at the top and no ice.
You say the bottom of the freezer is blowing cold, but are you sure its blowing, as it can feel like a cold blow. Of course the fan could have failed or may be the defrost heater itself.

Freezer cold/fridge not


take back plate off inside freezer and see if there is ice build up on the pipework. if so, this prevents airflow and the fridge is affected first. melt off ice with a hairdryer and restart.
if fault reoccurs, you have a fault with the defrost system

Fridg not cold


your story is very odd but likely nobody is messing with the door switch hwen you moved , or the wires could have shorted out. normally, the door switch, when you open a door would switch on a cabinet light and turn off the blower. in your case, its the reverse, as you open a door, the blower runs and if you close the door, the blower stops. im not sure if you can figure out which pair is the normally close and which one is the normally open on the door switch in order to swap them or you may rplace the door switch.
