Refrigerator and Freezer not getting cold?

My maytag side by side refrig model MSD2655HES will not stay cold anymore in either the freezer or refrig section. I have given it a few days and kept turning up the cold level on both and still nothing is happening. The manual says something about a fuse box? Can't locate this and don't know what that is. Do you know of anything that might be wrong with it?

    Well, I don't know what the compressor is or where it is located. Can you help me locate it? I hear a humming noise coming from my refrigerator and air is blowing. There is no frost buildup on the back wall of my freezer but there is frost buildup at the bottom of the freezer. I am also not sure what or where the condenser is?

    Is the compressor running, is there frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer? Is the condenser where the heat is moved to the air in back of the unit clean?

The compressor is located in back of the refrigerator behind a removable panel at the bottom. But you indicated frost buildup in the freezer near or at the bottom which tells me your compressor does operate. Frost indicates a problem in the defrost system. This type of problem can be caused by a bad defrost heater, defrost thermostat, or defrost timing device. Call an appliance repair for service.

Unplug the machine and let it completely defrost with the doors open overnight. then try it. if it still does not get cold then you know it is a more serious problem, like a compressor $300+
if it works for a couple days then freezes up again then you know it is a defrost problem, less serious problem <$100

The freezer is freezing but the refrigerator is not getting cold why?


check the damper door vent located between the refrige and freezer for being iced up and stuck shut,if cold air from freezer can't get past thid door the refrige will warm up,if this isnt the problem,adjust the refrige temp control and watch and see if this makes this door open and close as you adjust the temp of the refrige compartment

The fridge does not seem to be cold.


if just the refrige isnt cold,check the damper door located between the freezer and refrige compartments and see if its open to let in cold air from freezer,if not sometimes they freeze shut and cant operate with temperature setting changes/if nothings cold,then replace the ptc overload relay located on the compressor body,it just unplugs off the compressor
