The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at [email protected]
check the damper door vent located between the refrige and freezer for being iced up and stuck shut,if cold air from freezer can't get past thid door the refrige will warm up,if this isnt the problem,adjust the refrige temp control and watch and see if this makes this door open and close as you adjust the temp of the refrige compartment
if just the refrige isnt cold,check the damper door located between the freezer and refrige compartments and see if its open to let in cold air from freezer,if not sometimes they freeze shut and cant operate with temperature setting changes/if nothings cold,then replace the ptc overload relay located on the compressor body,it just unplugs off the compressor
Your refrigerator has an Adaptive Deforst Control located in the control panel inside the fresh food section part number 61005988 is is the most likely reason for your trouble. Picture #13 below.
Thanks, Sea Breeze
unplug the machine and let it completely defrost with the doors open overnight. then try it. if it still does not get cold then you know it is a more serious problem, like a compressor $300+
if it works for a couple days then freezes up again then you know it is a defrost problem, less serious problem <$100
