Sounds like you have a problem with the defrost timer. usually they are at the back on the bottom of the fridge and have a little nob that is supposed to turn as a clock.

mark it and come back later to see if the timer moves, if not then there is your problem

The refrigerator side of my Maytag, model MZD2766GE, is warm. The freezer is working fine. I feel cold air coming out by the crispers at the bottom but no cold air coming out at the top. HELP...Single...

If sounds like the top cold air tube is frosted up. If you remove the rear shield over the evaporator coil you will see the tube opening. If you use a hair dryer (not of the hottest setting) and blow hot air down the tube you should be able to clear it.

Hello, Problem with Maytag plus Side by Side refrigerator model MZD2766GE.The Freezer part is working fine but the fridge part is not cold at all even after I adjusted the temperature to number 8. I do not...

You most likely have a defrost heater and/or defrost term switch. (switch is built into heater on your fridge).that needs replaced causing your coil to completely freeze up and blocking cool air flow to fridge side. Here is the part you need to order.

Water filter inside fresh food compartment keeps freezing up? Frigidaire brand 3-4 years old. Thanks, Steve.

hello,
Most times this is a bad cold control, but there are other things to check for. Make sure the condenser fan is working and the coils are not covered with dust. A separated heat exchanger ( small capillary tubing soldered to the large suction line ) can separate from one another and make the fridge run too long. - tape tubing back together. A poor working evaporator fan motor could also make the fridge run too long and freeze - replace the fan motor. An inefficient compressor or refrigeration system could make the fridge run too long and freeze - have a service tech check this out. A misaligned control settings, make sure the air damper and cold control have not been bumped and are out of normal settings. Stuck open air diffusers or air dampers are becoming more and more common for allowing too much air to be blown into the fresh food section and freezing things. On all frost free fridge's the freezer temp air is blown into the fresh food section, if you have "easy" to freeze items ( eggs, veggies in water, etc ) in front of or under where the freezer temp air comes out, they could freeze
Check the cold control, and also the air deflector. As you know, the deflector directs the freezer air toward the front of the frig and the rear of the cold control.

Hope this helpout....

Refrigerator side doesn't feel cool but the freezer side is cold for a Maytag refrigerator model # MZD2766GE

Is there ice build-up in the back of the freezer? If so take the panel off the back of the freezer section inside the freezer and replace the heating element.

Maytag freezer don't freeze food or make ice

There could be several things causing the frig to be cold but not cold enough. First check thermostat control and air control. Both should be set in the middle setting for normal operation.Next check to see if evaporater fan is running in freezer. It should be running whenever compressor runs and circulates cold air inside frig as well as freezer. Next check if condensor fan motor is running. It blows air over condensor coils to remove heat. Last ,check condensor itself for dirty coils. If they are matted up with hair dust,etc. it will cause poor cooling. you can give thorough cleaning with vacuum cleaner. Hope this helps

Freezer is in garage and has worked up until now. Still runs, makes a humming sound and is cold but not freezing. Food is thawing.

jeskjw

If it is below freezing in your garage the freezer will not work.
No freezer except one Frigidaire freezer will work in the extreme cold.
This one has a button to switch it to a refrigerator in the winter and a freezer in the summer.

Maytag MZD2766GE side by side, fridge not getting cold.

Your timer for the automatic defrost is defective. Replace it. If you thawed out the back of the freezer, this could be good for 3-7 days and it will freeze up again. I had the same trouble.

Maytag MZD2766GES side-by-side Refrigerator warm

is it frozen up? do you have any air flow thru the air tunnel from the freeze to the fridge? Check your air flow with the door switch pushed in. also check to see if the damper door opens... 1) if it is iced up you have a defrost problem. most likely a defrost timer. Turn off or unplug untill all the ice has melted off the evaporator back of the freezer..plug back in and it will work fine untill the ice builds up again. if this work you do have a defrost problem.. if not let me know and we can go deeper...
