Maytag MFD2561HEQ Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - Freezer working, refrigerator not

Hi. My Maytag broke on me after less than 2 years. The freezer (bottom) still works fine, however, the refrigerator does not. No cool air seems to be pumped in. Any advice? Thank you.

Marc of Nc. check to make sure the fan in the freezer is operating when the compressor is on. The only thing the fresh food section gets its cool air from is the freezer. and if the fan is not operating no cold air will get up there. If the fan is running you need to make sure the air duct is not blocked with frost of the evaporator is not iced up. Check that out and get back with me if there still is a problem. Good Luck

My Maytag MFF2558VEM Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator doesn't keep cool


What you should be looking for is a blocked air flow. The fan in the freezer will push air up to the fridge and cool it off. Look for a dead fan motor in the freezer or a blocked air vent Good luck

My Maytag MF12568AES Refrigerator is not cooling. May be I need to reset the computer.


This happens to my Maytag like clockwork every summer. The freezer works fine but the refrigerator stops cooling. The first time this happened, it was the fault of the small plastic DC fan that sends cooling from the freezer compartment to the refrigerator section. A technician replaced the DC plastic with an AC metal fan he guaranteed would last the life of the refrigerator. He blamed govt energy standards as the reason Maytag uses the cheap DC plastic fan in the first place. Problem solved. One year later, same issue with no cooling in the refrigerator, freezer fine. Again today, nearly one year to the day! SOLUTION? Trip the circuit breaker or unplug the refrigerator for a minimum of 5 minutes. A reboot now fixes the problem every time. Who would have thought you'd ever have to REBOOT your refrigerator?

Refrigerator not cooling but freezer is


Something has stopped the cold air being ducted from freezer side to refrigerator side of things. Possibly duct blocked due to ice build up, evaporator not self defrosting etc. Turn unit off for a few days till it melts and then turn back on. If it was because a door has been left slightly open you will be ok. If for any other reason you will want to have it serviced in the next week or so.

Refrigerator is not cold but freezer is still operating.


Couple things, both doing with air flow. If the fan in the lower freezer isn't working there will be no cold air moved into the upper fridge. If the defrost cycle happens to be dead then the coils down there will freeze solid and there can be no air flow over them to cool the upper area. You'll have to pull the lower drawer out and take off the interior rear panel to check these things. Hopefully it's just that the fan motor went out. It's real easy to change. Let me know what you find, if the coil is all iced up solid then there's more things you need to look into.
