The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.

SOURCE: Refrigerator won't cool. Freezer works fine!

Pierce, there was a service bullitin put out on this model. TDR-0010A-B. Had to do with normal freezer, warm fresh food compartment. Maytag issued a kit that included a new thermostat and damper assy. to solve this problem. Bullitin came out in 2002. If you are not having a defrost issue and all fans are running normal, I would call Maytag and inquire about the above posted bullitin, It may be covered. Catriver...post back.

SOURCE: warm fridge

Can you check to see if dust has accumulated under the refrigerator and the fan under the refrigerator is blowing warm air?
If the fan is blowing correctly and you find dust blocking the condenser area beneath the fridge try to blow it out or vacuum it away from the fins or metal grid. Just a small amount of dust there or a leaking door gasket will make it hard for the refrigerator to cool properly. Also check that nothing has blocked the entrance or the exit of the condenser warm air area. Hope I have helped you today, Thanks Sea Breeze

SOURCE: fridge does not get cold

I had the same problem. The problem was my freezer was not defrosting itself and for a while i opened up the back and manually defrosted the freezer with a hair dryer (to make it defrost faster) and lots of towels (to soak up all the water). I replaced the defrost heater in the freezer and no more problem. Go to searspartsdirect.com and put in your model # then look for the part. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: fridge is warm even when i adjust temp. control.freezer is good.

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.

My freezer works fine, but fridge doesn't cool down below 55 degrees. Could it be the adjustment dial in the fridge.(i have cleaned the dust and dirt out of the back/bottom.

It sounds like the circulating fan is wearing out. The fan circulates air thru the freezer as well as the refrigerator. When it starts to wear out the force is reduce to a point that the freezer will get cold but the refrigerator will not get cool.The minimum cost of the assemble is around $300.00

MSD2454GR Side by Side refrigerator- freezer side fine, refrigerator side will not cool below 50 degrees; lots of condensation

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat.
