This particular Maytag refrigerator model number is MFD2561HES and was made in 2005. Your model number, though, may differ if you have the same type of refrigerator with other options (other model numbers may have options such as a water dispenser, etc.) and you will find that these instructions will apply to the other model numbers. If you get these instructions and then find your refrigerator is nothing like the instructions, let us know so that we may make things right for you.
These instructions will work if your refrigerator is warm but the freezer is still keeping cold. If you are having this condition and when you open the bottom freezer drawer and then hold the button in, as shown in the figure below, then you would normally hear a hum of a fan INSIDE the freezer compartment when you push this button in (note, you may hear a fan from the back of the unit...that is fine, but if you don't hear the hum of a fan within the freezer compartment, then there is a problem).
If you are not hearing the hum/whirl of a fan inside the freezer compartment when you hold in this button, then these instructions are for you! If you hear a fan in the back on the outside of the refrigerator, that is fine...but without a humming sound from within the freezer compartment, then you need this fix (there are two fans on this refrigerator...one that is outside and can be heard easily from the back of the refrigerator, and another inside the refrigerator/freezer section). You might also note frozen condensation on the bottom back panel of your freezer if you remove the bottom drawer and look at the very back bottom.
These instructions are available for $19.99. The cost for this repair by a local appliance repair service would likely be a minimum of $280 dollars...more likely $350 or more. With these instructions and a part for about $35 (and we'll tell you where you can go locally to get the part for same day repairs or order via the internet), you will be back with a cool refrigerator for a total cost of about $50 and the pride of fixing it yourself...saving yourself approximately $300! If you can't fix your refrigerator with these instructions, let us know (you fix it or your money back...guaranteed).
Here are the only tools you will need for this repair:
2. Needle Nose Pliers
3. Socket wrench 1/4"
The only other part you will need is a part that you may get from your local appliance parts store (or order via the internet if you don't have a local appliance parts store). Within the instructions you will be directed how to get this part, either locally or by ordering on the internet. This part should cost about $35.
