Sounds like the evap fan is not running. The fan takes cold air from the freezer to cool the refer compartment. If the freezer is cold the compressor is running. Generally the freezer will stay cold since the cooling coils are there but it must have the fan working to get the air up to the refer area. Pull everything out the freezer and take the back panel off to view the coils and fan, etc. It's a simple easy job to change the fan. If you find the coils are a total block of ice then it's another problem... the defrost cycle isn't working. Sooo... see if the fan is running in the freezer compartment first. See http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/AA43-57.gif for fan location, item 18 is the fan motor. Let us know what you find out.

The fuse holder may be loose.
With the microwave unplugged, if you can easily turn the fuse with your thumb & forefinger while it's in the holder, it has overheated and fatigued and should be replaced.
Simply squeezing its terminals together with pliers is not really a good solution.
When a connection is loose, heat results, which eventually melts the fuse internally.
This is usually evidenced by a very tiny ball of solder at the point where the end cap meets the body of the fuse.
You can use a generic holder - it's a lot cheaper than ordering one. The connectors should be 1/4" tabs and it should be rated at 20 amps or better.
You should be able to get one from a home center or local appliance parts store.
If it's not loose, then it may be a failing magnetron or high voltage transformer pulling too much current.
We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Check to see if there is frost on the rear wall o f the freezer wall. If so, the units cooling coils (behind the frost) may be covered with ice. Defrosting is necessary. The refrigerator may not be defrosting at regular intervals a required. Standing open for a couple of days should defrost it but it will still be necessary to find out why it frosted over. There is a defrost control that automatically melts ice from the cooling coils on a regular basis. Maybe this control is not functioning.

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.

disassemble front door to get to the latch. Check if the latch is properly in place, sometimes the metal cylinder that hold it in place, slips out of position.

Tips for a great answer:

the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost. Check the freezer (
evaporator) fan to see if it is running. Check the condenser coils under the
unit for blockage from dust. Check the condenser fan (under the unit) to see if
it is running.
If you have frost in the freezer there is a problem with the defrost system and the freezer will start to warm eventually as well as the fresh food section. If that is the problem you can check the defrost terminator, defrost heater/s, and the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control If used on your unit or the main control board if so equipped. These things usually require dismantling the freezer and other areas of the refrigerator to be checked.
can be many factors for the no cooling factor: the condenser coils could be
blocked with dust, the condenser fan could be bad or stuck, the freezer fan
could be stuck or bed, the freezer coils could be blocked with frost because
the self-defrost system is not working or the compressor is not running because
of a bad relay etc.
