Warm fridge cold freezer

This usually happens when your Defrost (heater) is not working, Firstly Get your Defrost Timer Checked. If that is the problem then the timer is much easier to be replaced. Depending on the models the Timer prices differ from $10 to $115.
If this is not the issue then Inside the freezer is the Defrost Heater Placed, and you will figure out that this unit is having the problem due to which the channels to pass the Cool air into the Fridge is blocked and not keeping it cool. You will have to check if this Heater can be fixed or replaced. *Again this cost will Differ based on the models*

Freezer is working but main fridge is not getting cold

I want you to look into the back of the freezer and see if you notice ice beginning to stick to the metal panel that has the evaporator fan behind it. Let me know because this is usually the first sign the defrost timer or defrost element and defrost thermostat are not working properly. Sea Breeze

Maytag refrig freezer not working

The defrost coil may be bad. It's real tough to get at, you have to remove the cover over the freezer coils. First make sure it's not just the defrost timer. Check for parts and help.

Try turning the defrost timer clockwise until you hear it click. If defrost element and defrost thermostat are working properly, the refrigerator should begin to defrost. The timer is located inside the fresh food compartment behind plastic controls cover and also near the thermistat control.beb686d.jpg .I will be around if you need, just let me know,Sea Breeze
