Customer Question

Maytag refrigerator JFC2089HEP not working (fridge and freezer). We unplugged it for 36 hours but when we plugged it back in still no cold air being generated although motor in back is running. Anything else we can check easily before calling a technician out?

Unfortunately if the compressor is running but not cooling, you either have no refrigerant left in the system due to a leak, or a major restriction in the lines somewhere. This type of work has to be done by someone who has a refrigerant recovery license. So unfortunately it does look like its time to call a technician.
