Maytag refrigerator mff2557heb warm freezer & fridge

Happy Friday! It started with the ice maker quitting. I cleaned the coils (I have learned to do this every couple of months.) A couple days later ice was built up on back of freezer wall. We thawed it (not fully as I later found out) then next day it was not freezing and the fridge was warm.. We took freezer back wall off and thoroughly thawed it, then we checked the thermostat. We checked in another freezer and it was working. We put it all back together and hoped for the best. Next day was the worst. Had to give away most of our food. We checked the relay switch and capacitor with multimeter and they tested good. We checked the compressor and all 3 tested good. We decided it had to be the control board. I put it in about 30 hours ago and fridge has dropped from 80 to 66F and freezer down to 59. I am at a loss. There are no noises, Any suggestions? Thank you, Vickie

OUR MAYTAG REFRIGERATOR MODEL MFF2557HEB MAKES A CRACKING NOISE

Not sure this is your answer.. but we had a similar issue... it turned out to be the built in Ice maker... even though it was not hooked up it was running... and with no water it would pop and strain.. (like a small motor running).. we were able to stop it by making sure that the Ice Maker was shut off.. it took weeks to figure out.

Not sure its the same issue.. but maybe.
