Question about Maytag Sovereign 60CZ Side by Side Refrigerator
The vegetable CZT drawer has stopped working and the control panel for the drawer is not lit. I cannot see how to deatach the unit to check all the electrics etc.
I had the same problem. Apparently the problem is the main control board. According to the technician that came out to fix mine there is a design flaw and these boards are very sensitive and can blow a circuit or malfunction from the slightest power surge. What happens then is that the control board doesn't "tell" the fan to turn on and off at the right time so the fridge and freezer warm up too much before the fan kicks in and then it cools everything down but since the fan isn't running at the correct intervals and circulating the air all of the cold air settles to the bottom which causes the produce in the drawers to freeze while the top shelves get warmer. I had done a fair bit of research before calling GE and came to the conclusion that this was a common problem. So I pressed them and was able to get the fee for the part waived (before I made the service call appointment) which was around $150. The part now has a 5 year waranty which I find funny, because I'm not sure why it wouldn't have that upfront as my refridgerator is only 2 years old. Whatever!! Unfortunately, unless you have indepth knowledge of refridgerator repair there is no way around the service call and labor. Anyone buying a new model of refridgerator (any company) should consider an extended waranty. The service tech also told me that all refridgerators made after 2001 are required, by law, to have an electronic mother board which in all likelyhood will fail at somepoint prior to when you are ready to buy a new fridge!

Make sure that you realise that 1 degree is colder than 2 degrees and therefore a setting of 3 - 5 degrees might solve your problem

Have you put a good thermometer in the refrigerator, let it sit there for an hour or so without opening the door and then checked the temperature? If you're near 32 degrees, you've found the problem. Temperature uniformity is usually a problem in refrigerators...thus the fans, but ideally the temp should be in the mid 30's (34-38 degrees) rather than low 30's or you'll be freezing someplace
