Freezer side operates properly: holds temperature, etc. Refrigerator side won't go below 50 degrees F, even when set to coldest setting. Meat storage drawer shows aboout 50. We've emptied refrigerator side, and don't see any blockage. Don't both freezer and refrigerator opeerate on same refrigeration compressor and coolant?

Re: Refrigerator won't cool. Freezer works fine!
Pierce, there was a service bullitin put out on this model. TDR-0010A-B. Had to do with normal freezer, warm fresh food compartment. Maytag issued a kit that included a new thermostat and damper assy. to solve this problem. Bullitin came out in 2002. If you are not having a defrost issue and all fans are running normal, I would call Maytag and inquire about the above posted bullitin, It may be covered. Catriver...post back.
Sometimes there is a lever on the bottom left hand side of the refridgerator side that lets cool air form the freezer in --it may have gotten closed. Check to make sure it is open. Also this happened to us--we emptied fridge-turned it off for 2 days and then it was fine.

My 14 years old GE profile refrigerator keep cooling above 50 degrees and not going down to below 40 degrees. I did clean condenser coil and fans are running fine. I adjusted temperature control to maximum cold .Do you think it my be short of refrigerant?
first try to clean the condenser coil, it is under the bottom of the unit,blow out or vac out the coil. check to see if fan in freezer is running or if there is ice on the evaporator coil inside freezer.
The temp for the fridge is about right and -18 for the freezer is ok so check to see if the water filter is plugged, at 8 degrees Celsius is about 18 degrees fht. Which is freezing so the numbers don't add up. 26 degrees below zero on the freezer side is what you want if it that cold it could have frozen the water line.
Check in the back of the fridge section; there is normally a control that is provided for 'balancing' the cold air between the two sections.
That coolled air is distributed by a concealed fan that may not be running; you should be able to ear or feel the air movement when the unit is in a cooling cycle.
