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.

The temp char recorder is not working
There are a few companys that make temp chart recorders that are battery controled and you could get one of these and just put it inside the refrigerator, problem solved. Check at United Refrigeration, and Johnstone Supply they both have manufacturers that will allow you to keep charts. The 2 things to keep in mind 1 How often are you going to change charts, 2 what temperature range are you looking for.
Oh yes and Im sure there is a company that makes a remote sensed temp recorder that can tie into a computer and print out charts as needed. This is a little more specialized but I know the technology is asvailable. Probably Johnson or Penn Controls would know about this.
If this helps you in any way please rate me as high as you can. If you need to contact me and I can do the searching for you post back.

Freezer turns of in cold weather
Many residential refrigerator / freezers are designed to work at temperature considerably above above freezing. Most modern refrigerator / freezer have a single electric thermostat - located in the fresh food compartment. This lone thermostat will control the compressor to keep the fridge (fresh food) section at the desired temperature (usually between 34 - 38 degrees F). The freezer will get colder regardless of how cold it is already whenever the fridge thermostat turns the compressor on.
Now that you see how the thermostat works, let's look at what happens when the fridge is placed in an unheated space - like a garage. In winter time, the temperature can drop considerably below 38 degrees. If the outdoor temperature remains cold enough, for long enough - it will affect the thermostat in the fridge. The temperature inside the fridge could drop below 38 degrees, preventing the thermostat from telling the compressor to turn on. Meanwhile, the temperature in the freezer compartment slowly rises from the normal -10 to 0 F degrees. It will continue to rise until it is the same temperature as the fresh food compartment or until the thermostat in the fresh food compartment tells the compressor to turn on again. This means the freezer contents will thaw.
If the temperature in the garage is even in the 40 to 50 degree range, the loss of cold in the fridge may not happen often enough to keep the compressor coming on often enough to keep some freezer items frozen solid - such as ice cream. Remember, water freezes at 32 degrees F, other products may require lower temperatures to remain frozen, and could thaw at 28 or other temperature.

Fridge temperature tow low. Can't find info on how to replace or by-pass thermostat
Model: Inglis ILT86501
I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I'd be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.
