We have a Maytag Gemini electric oven. The upper oven top

We have a Maytag Gemini electric oven. The upper oven top element will come on but the lower element does not, and the oven does not get hot. Any thoughts on what to test or try first?JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: IT is 10 years old. I will have to dig out the manual to see the model; the sticker on the back is totally faded. The upper oven thinks it is working properly--the temperature readout goes up to the set temp--but we don't see the elements glowing and it is definitely NOT up to temp, although it gets warm.JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: My husband will if he can. He is an electrician and does have a volt meter if that would be helpful. But if we have to call someone we willJA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: no

I have a Maytag Refrigerator Model RTD2300.22.6 cubic foot

I have a Maytag Refrigerator Model RTD2300.22.6 cubic foot with freezer on top. Twice in the last week and a half I have noticed that the freezer compartment seems to not be cooling, the ice was melting and some foods were getting soft. It would seem to come back after a day and start working again. The second time this happened I stuck a thermometer in the refrigerator compartment and it would only cool to about 41 degrees, so I emptied everything out of both compartments and let it sit for a day empty. When I checked the refrigerator compartment the next day it registered 32.8 degrees and has kept it there for 48 hours. I was told that it is most likely the compressor is shot and I should just replace the whole refrigerator due to it's age. Is it possible that maybe it isn't the compressor? I hate to just abandon the unit if there is a simple fix to the problem.

When delivered, our new Whirlpool Refrigerator (freezer on

When delivered, our new Whirlpool Refrigerator (freezer on bottom) was set on "4" for the reefer and "4" for the freezer by the delivery people as recommended.The "4" settings proved too warm for both reefer and freezer. After a few weeks of operation and being pretty-well stocked with groceries, it seems the freezer will just go about 2-3 degrees below the recommended 0 degF when set at "7" (the maximum cold setting). And the refrigerator will never go below about 36 degF when set at "7" (again, the lowest temp setting possible). These temps both seem too warm to me for maximum low settings. What do you think? (I am using an alcohol type thermometer)JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: The refrigerator is about 6 weeks old.JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: No. Just want to know if there is a problem with small temp adjustment abilities. Model WRB119WFBW.JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: Just need to know what adjustment parameters this unit should have> For example should the reefer go down to say 33 degF at "7" setting and the freezer go to say 25 degF at "7" setting. Seems like there isn't much difference in temp between "4" and "7" settings.
