There is no sensor like you stated. Actually, when you keep open the fridge door, the cooling all will go out and hence thermostat sensor would not cut off, as required temp not reached inside the fridge.
So, the compressor would have run for long time without cut off. Due to this the overload protector trips the compressor. Remove power for 4 to 6 hrs. And then restart the fridge. But make sure you close the fridge door. Thanks.

Frigidaire refrigerator beeps every 20 seconds or so. three beeps.


try opening the door.leave it open.unplug the fridge for at least 5 minutes, no less,with the door still open.after that,plug it back in.wait for it to beep.then close the door.
this would reset the door alarm,which beepes when the door isn't properly closed.
also you should wait 24 hours between changing the temperature or it can mess up your fridge.!

The fan stops when i open the fridge and it beeps about 10 times


The beeping is caused to notify you that temperatures are rising the=> 2304099 Defrost Control Board

is possibly defective. Sometimes examining both sides of the defrost board will reveal burn marks or signs of heat damage but not always. Look inside the freezer to see if frost is building on the rear wall of the freezer. Here is a link to a photo of a freezer wall showing frost buildup HERE Here is a link to a parts manual T1FHTXMQ00 Parts Manual User Manual HERE
Other parts that may cause the refrigerator to warm are the=>

Maytag MFI2568AES refrigerator was left open a couple hours, now it's not cooling at all.


Unfortunately, this model has had quite a few problems, because it is such a complicated refrigerator. Many times a shorted component that is connected to the Iceland main control board will affect completely unrelated items making it easy to chase your tail for hours. I would suspect the freezer thermostor - only because we have had to replace it many times in the past.
Suggest you go to the www.searspartsdirect.com and copy the electrical diagram and then verify electrical reading on the main PCB, to try to isolate the problem.

When a refrigerator door is left open the freezer will continue to run to keep it cold and since it can't cool an open area it will freeze up on the inside, to resolve this you will need to unplug the fridge and open the freezer door and allow the freezer to thaw completely, once it is thawed you can plug it back in and everything should go back to normal after a 24 hour period

Refrigerator stopped working, freezer works fine


I turned off the refrigerator and left the freezer door open so the coils and the vents could thaw out. The cold air was not getting to the refrigerator section because of ice blocking the vents.
