Does not cool either side fan runs and compressor
2 possible issues. If compressor running, but not cooling - No freon in the system, or compressor valves are bad, not compressing freon. Ideal would be to check pressures on the system while its running. Could be some kind of restriction. most common problem i would guess low freon level. Here are 2 of my videos i have on my channel. first is leak found at evaporator coils. i used leak dye to find it, second video is replacing compressor, but had compressor completely down. installed 3-n-1 hard start kit, but compressor did not come on, so replaced compressor with filter drier. Hope this will give you an idea what to do next.

The water/ice service panel on the outside of my
The problem with those auto light panel`s is the device (photo-cell) responsible for sensing when to activate the light is common to fail. But before replacing it, follow the direction`s below to secure the ribbon connector to insure it is making a good connection.
Unfortunately the failed component is integrated into the outer trim and which can only be resolved by replacing the outer panel assembly called an ``escutcheon`` part # 61005386 and retail`s for around $120-$150, so I`d shop around.
It is easy to replace if need be, but as you can see not cheap. If you do change it, make sure you shut off the breaker before pulling the escutcheon/front panel off. If you look at the panel from the bottom, you should see a couple of slot`s just large enough to slide a small flat screwdriver behind to allow you to pry it off. From there you can lift it up and off, (careful not to scratch the freezer door) but you`ll need to unplug the ``ribbon connector`` from the panel/escutcheon. Reverse this when installing the new part and you should be fine.
Hope that helps. Good luck and thank`s for visiting fixya.

Mzd2766geb maytag ref freezer door insulation frozen solid with ice
Even if the unit if issue free, this older design is still suseptable to moisture intrusion behind the inner liner. If your ice is below or around where the fointain area is, than you may be leaking water from the fountain behind the outer door shell. Since your outer door and inner liner are no longer avail, the best suggestion is to turn the entire fridge off, and let everything completely dry before re assembly. Once insulation gets imbedded with moisture and freezes, the insulation factor diminishes. Although your outer door insulation should be the newer style semi solid foamed in style, so moisture intrusion will not be any deeper than an inch or so. If the fountain heater has failed around the dispenser, you attract moisture to that area too. Pleazer Appliance...

Install water line
It should be marked. And you should have a water line kit with it.

Slowly stopped cooling
you dont give any detail at all, so my best guess is you have a sealed system leak of refrigerant. This is NOT something you can repair yourself, only an EPA Certified Refrigerator Repair service
can perform these types of repairs. Its possible it might be something else, I am just guessing after all, i would have a qualified refrigerator repair service inspect and diagnose your fridge.
