Question about Maytag Refrigerators
I cleaned the coils and checked the condenser fan is running. The air coming into the fridge was cold, just not much volume, I popped the vent cover off at the upper center of fridge and I could hear the evaporator fan running. Checked the back wall of the freezer, there was frost on the horizontal openings. I melted that with a hair dryer, although there was probably more I couldn't see without disassembly, the fridge did start cooling and is still cold now some 20 hours later. What is likely to be a permanent fix for this? The damper in the fridge is working properly, I can see it with that cover off.
Check that the return air duct near the bottom of the fridge is not blocked. The air may be going into the fridge but cant get out. It has to complete a cycle where it gets drawn back into the freezer to get cold and then gets blown back into the food compartment. The baffle controls how much or how little cold air goes in. You may have to take the rear panel off the inside of the freezer, there may an ice buildup in there.

sounds like the evaporator fan in the freezer is not moving the air. also there is an air damper door at the top center of the fridge that controls air flow from the freezer to the fridge. check those two components and you will find your problem.

CHECK TO SEE IF THE EVAPORATOR FAN MOTOR IS RUNNING, ITS IN THE BACK OF THE FREEZER SIDE, MOTOR MAY BE BAD OR SOMETHING COULD BE BLOCKING IT...

very easy the fan cover snaps into place and make sure you get the new motor that is metal not the plastic one they are the problem

if your fridge has 2 set of dials one numbers and the other letters than you need to adjust the dial that has letters on it. If the fan in your freezer is not blowing, then it won't force the cold air from the freezer to the fridge. Make sure fan blows then adjust the letter knob.
