Under the front kick plat on the bottom there is a device called a defrost timer.. these go out quite a bit.. also the coil cooling fan could have gone out which is allowing the conpressor to overheat and making the compressor shut down and not allowing it to cycle enough to keep it getting cold... check these things out..

We have a model MBF1956KEB the freezer works but not the fridge


sounds like you have a bad damper,if you go here and look at part number 13 you can see it
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/MAYTAG-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-MBF1956KEB/3048/0161000/M0607105/00010?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=
it's broke in the closed position so no cold air can get blown over from the freezer and into the fridge section,open the freezer door and make sure you hear the fan blowing,also check around the freezer door and ceiling of the freezer and make sure there isn't any ice,common problem with bottom mount freezers is the door can get left open,warm air gets sucked into the freezer and ice forms in the air ducts,if all looks good i would say you have a bad damper,one more thing,remove the bottom kick panel there should be a tech sheet either folded up in the panel or taped on the cabinet wall down there,it will tell you how to do a diagnostics check to check all the parts like the damper,this way you know what part is bad.hope this helps you out and good luck.

The ice trap door won't stop cycling open and closed and the control panel on the door is blinking all of the lights


Called maytag with model and serial number. This is a very common problem. They sent a new mother board free of charge within a couple of days. You will have to go to the back of the fridge to swap mother boards. It was pretty simple if you have a little patience. Maytag wanted to charge $200 for the service call but it took my husband about twenty minutes. Then you will need to reprogram with the code inside of the door. I was told that this happens alot if there is a power surge, so I now have the fridge on a surge protector. Haven't had a problem since. Hope this helps.

Maytag fridge which freezes food in fridge compartment


How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Whirlpool gold fridge model GD5SHAXNSOO


Have you got a screw loose. One which holds the door light switch. is it the switch which buzzes?. I had a fridge which didn't get cold. When I scrapped it I found that the retaining ring for the switch was not tight enough and r4ealised that the light had been on when the door was closed.

5 year old Maytag Wide by Side Refrigerator side not cooling


Same issue with my 6 yr old Maytag side-by-side model #MSD2756GEW. Turned out it was caused by a faulty circuit board. This circuit board is located in the upper right fridge section. Apparently these boards are sensitive to power surges (which we have here in central Texas from time to time.) When the circuit board is fried, it makes a noise like a fan blade malfunctioning and it stops the auto defrost feature in the freezer from working. So the freezer ices up at the back, and the ice prevents the cold air from reaching the fridge section.

Our circuit board (which we thought was a fan) made ominous noises for a few months. (The noise would last only a minute or so and stop shortly after we opened a door). Eventually we noticed that the fridge wasn't as cold and the freezer had snow in it. Finally the board stopped making noise and about a week or so afterward we noticed that the milk had spoiled and the fridge wasn't very cold. The food in the freezer side pretty solidly frozen, thankfully.

In addition to replacing the circuit board, the fridge had to be de-iced or it would not work properly. I put it all frozen into a large camping cooler where it stayed for several hours. I opened the freezer doors and put table fan and pointed a hobby light which gets quite hot, at the back of the freezer. Within 3 hours, the ice had melted significantly so I could see through the grate at the back of the freezer. This really great technician named Tracy, made a special trip to the parts store to get the circuit board and came back within a couple hours, bringing with him a steamer. He removed the back panel inside the freezer section (the coils are behind there) and used the steamer to melt the rest of the ice before he left.

Tracey, who works for a local appliance repair company, told me that about 4 years ago, Maytag started making their fridges with built-in surge protection, so the circuit boards apparently don't get fried on the newer models as they do on my 6 yr old model. He recommended that we put plug the fridge into a heavy-duty surge protector - which we are definitely going to do.

Kenmore bottom freezer refrigerator


This sounds like the Maytag bottom mount that has a High Voltage Control Board problem. Does this have the freezer/fridge temp. display/controls on the left hand fridge door? Whats the model number and on the manufacture tag does it something on it like Code:0304 maybe? Let me know I may have an answer I do work on these for a living.

Maytag fridge


Without knowing the type of fridge(side by side, freezer on top etc.) all I can offer is this: Somewhere between the freezer and the fridge there's an opening thermostatically controlled to transfer cold air from freezer to the fridge. Most have a fan to move the air. So either the fan (if so equipped) stopped, and need to replace, or opening is stuck closed, or plugged.
If freezer is working fine, this is the only problem I can think of.
Hope this helps
