Sounds like a defrost problem or dirty coils under the machine. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/control board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

Freezer working, but refridgerator is not cold. The fan works.


You most likely have a failure in the defrost circuit. One or more of thee possibilities: Heating element, defrost timer and/or defrost thermostat.

Refridgerator not cold but freezer working fine


okay this is what you check for, is your freezer back panel covered with ice, if it is then take the panel off and check your heaters for continuity and look at your bimetal thermastat.
another checking point is do you hear the fan running, if not then you need to replace evaporator fan.

My MayTag refrigerator don't work, but it is on Maximum. The freezer works, and everything works, also the little fan in the freezer,it also works. I need any assitance for problem.


Check all coils for dirt and hair build up.
They can be cleaned with a soft brush and a vacuum.
Some are on the back of the fridge and some are on the bottom. Without proper air flow the heat cannot disapate very well. Check the vent holes inside the refridgerator side to see if something is in the way.
The freezer sends the cold air to the refridgerator through these vent holes.

Was it the damper control you replaced and it's still not adjusting the vent(damper)? And is the cold air from the freezer being blown through the vent by the fan in the freezer.
The circuit board mainly controls the defrost timing and the fans. I don't know that it would solve your problem.

Top refridgerator does not get cold but the bottom freezer works fine


Most of these have a fan that blows the cold air for the freezer into the refrigiator section. If the fan quits running you will experience your problem.

Warm fridge, cold freezer...


Listen for a fan running when you open the freezer door. May have to hold the light switch closed for it to come on. If you don't hear it then the fan is most likely bad. The evavorator fan motor is the most common repair on the trio's
