Question about Maytag Refrigerators
This problem may occur when the compressor is not working.it maybe also due to when the fluid circulation is improper or it may have some blocks somewhere in it .this may affect the cooling purpose.try to check whether there is any leakage of the gas like material filled in the tubes in the back of the fridge.if the gas circulation is improper refill the gas or the fluid whichever used in the tubes and then switch on it.try to replace the compressor if necessary.thank you

Step: 1) Make sure you didn't knock anything loose while changing the filter.
Step: 2) You most likely have a defrost problem. Check the back wall of the freezer for frost. If there is frost on the back wall that is why the fresh food section is not getting cold. All of the cooling is done behind the back wall of the freezer and the evaporator fan that you hear running must circulate the air throughout the entire refrigerator. If the frost builds up on the evaporator coils there is little or no air flow.
The most likely reason for the frost is the adaptive defrost control not working properly. This is not a simple thing to change and should be left to a pro to handle as things can be damaged in the removal and installation of this control.
Step: 3) Try to defrost your fridge for 36 hours and then restart it. The cause of that noise comes from the blade of evaporator fan motor. Ice form in the fan shroud, maybe the moullion heater is busted or it also happens if you accidentally left the door open for a long time.
The compressor motor runs to keep the collant circulating but it should not be loud and it should not run continuously.
Make sure the door seal is not leaking by having a close look around the door seal for any deformity or any sign of mold growing at one spot. If you find a suspect spot get the door seal replaced as the compressor motor will wear out otherwise.
If the door seals look OK then, if you are able, check or have checked, the thermostat to ensure that the sensor which shuts the motor down when it reaches the desired temperature is working.
A process of elimination really but the motor definitely should not be running all the time.

The ice maker has a problem The ice maker is a separate appliance within the freezer section. Please see the How things Work section of our website to learn about the normal functioning of ice makers. Some common problems with ice makers are:
The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice
The ice maker is producing ice poorly
The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.
The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.
First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.
There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

It would seem that it is most likely that there is ice around the coils behind the panel in the freezer section which is stopping the fan from blowing the air around.

If there is no cooling at all on the fridge section but the freezer works then it is confirmed that the compressor and gas pressure is OK. Now shut off the fridge and leave it powered off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if ice forms in the freezer then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked. Frost formation without defrosting could block the air flow and so shut the air passage to the fridge. Also the blower fan must work and if this is not working then the fan can be faulty. Also a fault on the control unit is a suspect to non functioning of any one of these components.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test using a multi-meter on the defrost timer and the thermostat and make your observations so that we come to the solution.
