We have the same fridge, yesterday our electricity felt out several times. After soms hours I noticed a temperaturedrop in the freezer so I guess this one gave up.
I did the check mentioned above. There are 2 compressors. If you look straight at the back of the fridge the left one seems to be cold, the right one is slightly hot so I presume this is the one from the fridge?
If so it seems we have a modulefault. Does anyone know how to fix it and how much it would cost?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Remove back panel of freezer. check if there is excessive ice build-up preventing air flow. if there is, then defrost carefully with a hairdryer (with appliance switched off) if no ice or frosting on pipework, check if compressor is running. if it is or hot to the touch or clicking, then you have a compressor fault and replacement is not diy. if compressor not running, then probably module fault

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.

Is the freezer compressor running? The sub zero's have dual compressors, maybe one failed. How about the condensor coil, is it clean?
