Hello Patrickbono,

I understand that your are having a problem with your fridge it is not getting cold. However, the freezer is cooling just fine this is a common occurrence when the evaporator fan goes out in the unit. Here is a tip you can follow to help you diagnosis the problem

Fridge not getting cold?

I would suggest you call the service tech as the unit is still under warranty and have them to replace the fan and check the rest of the unit.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

Refrigerator is too cold and freezes food.


Good day,
If the machine is under one year old, all working components are under factory warranty. Call for warranty service from selling dealer, or if you moved out of the area, an authorized Whirlpool warranty dealer.

Maytag plus msd2556aew freezer working good but evaperator collecting ice.fan works good ...frige side not getting cold...hear a buzz noise on the frige side near the lights


This is caused by a defrost problem, most likely a bad heater($44.66+sh part# 12 under freezer compartment diagram PS2061407 ). If the heater is good ( has continuity) the defrost assy ($66.22+sh part# 13 under controls diagram PS2061226 )will be bad. Go to www.partselect.com and enter your model number. It will bring up diagrams of your unit. This will show you where the parts are located and what they look like. Either one is easy to replace. Once you click on the part you need, it will take you to a sight that gives you the price and also below that it will have where people have changed the part and how to do so. Good luck and have a great day.

Freezer works fine but frige side not getting cold enough-side by side unit


Check rear wall of freezer to see if you can feel frost about halfway down. If so you likely have a defrost system problem. Three components involved in defrost system, Heater, defrost thermostat and defrost timer or Defrost control (circuit board).

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Model and brand is always helpful when requesting information.

Frige not getting cold on side by side unit but freezer works fine


Check the lever somewhere around the inside top of the refrigerator. This lever slides back and forth to control the temperature in the non-frozen compartment.

video on troubleshooting

if after you try the things on the video you may have to replace the motherboard. you can reset the frige by unplugin the power and pluging it back in. If you decide not to replace the motherboard as the unit will work fine untill you press the dispencer i reccomend unplugging the dispenser unit at the top of the freezer door so the frige will not accidently shut down just unplug the connector leading down the door. your frige will work fine without this connection just no water or ice at the door. If your frige is still under waranty (1year parts& labor) call them up and they will fix it.
The motherboard on this frige seems to be sensitive to surges and the transformer for the ice/water dispensencer goes bad. repacing the motherboard corrects this problem they cost about $75 to $90 on the appliance websites to install the new one it is very easy and you need to unplug your fridge and pull the metal cover off the back of the unit by removing four screws. the cables are all different size and can not be pluged in wrong the replacement board should come with instructions. to remove the board you may need needle nose pliers to push in the tabbs on the white board standoffs it should take about 10-15 minutes

I have solved this problem by replacing the back board if you have any questions I can help out

It's all in the controls. There is a "flapper" or door between the freezer compartment and the fresh food compartment. Other than the fan not operating, there is nothing else that would affect the temperature. The higher you set your freezer, the warmer the fresh food compartment will be. As long as your freezer is working, and you can hear the fan turn on, it's a control issue.
