Freezer works but refgrigerator section keeps barely cold

remove the back plate. check to see if the evaporater coils is completely iced over. If it is then your problem is the defrost system. the solution is either you timer, thermostat or element heater. very cheap to fix. if not, then check your damper. it may be that the mechanisim is not shuting or opening correctly and thus regulating air control to the right side of the refrigerator.

Our maytag refrigerator runs nonstop and doesn't get as cool, even after cleaning coils

Chek the interior lights. Make sure they are turning off. One bulb will cause these symptoms. Is the bondensor coil hot( it's the coil under the unit. If it is, The fridge is working but has a heat source that won't quit or run out.

Sounds like you have a defrost timer issue. It could also be a defective defrost heater, or high temp. limit control. Most likely it is the defrost timer though. Hope this helps

Refrigerator not cooling but freezes

You might try vaccuuming under the frig to clean the coils so it could disapate the heat more. This could cause that sytem. Also if the fan is not working.
