Try putting it into defrost. If an older model that uses a electro-mechanical timer it can be located in the control panel or behind kickplate. Use a flat blade screwdriver.

Fridgerator not cold and freezer not freezing


You will need to clean the condensor coil. It is usually under the refrigerator on newer models and in the rear on older models. All you need to do is use a vacuum to clean it. Also try to leave some room behind the refrigerator, do not keep it too close to the wall. It needs to circulate the warm air it extracts.

My maytag fridgerator has suddenly stopped getting cold. My freezer is fine and stays cold. Troubleshooting it did not work. Please help.


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.

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. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it'll be the control.

The temperature of the fridge has risen to 11/12 degrees & wont come down? Freezer works fine! Any answers please


Don't know the make and model of your fridge, but most fridges have only one evap coil located in the freezer. The fridgerator compartment is cooled by a fan to blow air from the coil back into the fridgerator section. Check that the fan is working and the vents in the fridgerator are not blocked. Often the problem might be that the defrost circuit is not functioning causing ice to build up on the evap coil thus block the air flow to the fridge. If you seen any ice build up in freezer or refrigerator that could be the problem. If that is the case, then you need to have the defrost circuit troubleshot, typical failures are the heater itself or the defrost timer if you have an older model. Hope this helps you.

Fridgerator part is not cooling anymore


You may need a recharge. check the condenser to see if its cold to the touch. if the condenser has pressure and is kinda cold, the charges is fine but, if its warm, you should recharge the unit.

Freezer is fine. Fridgerator portion does not cool .


The most likely cause is a bad evaperator fan motor. It is mounted in the freezer section. It blows the air up to the ref section. Open the freezer door and listen to see if you hear any fan noise.
