Customer Question
My freezer and refrigerator...

My freezer and refrigerator keep resetting to 56 degrees for the frig and 36 for freezer. I reset to 0 - freezer and 36 for frig but the temp goes right back to above settings. What the heck???

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of the fridge? And can you guesstimate how old is it?

Its a Maytag and with the double frig doors and the freezer drawer on the bottom. It's less than 10 years old. Not sure of the model number.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

What work, is there a quick fix???

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

NO, just that all my food is spoiling as I type.

The display will always default back to the actual temperatures so we need to determine why it is not cooling well.

  1. Can you hear a fan running in the freezer section?
  2. Can you see any frost on the back wall inside the freezer?
