only works intermittently, lately hardly at all.
I have a Maytag m1txemmww00 that for a while only works intermittently, lately hardly at all. Does not work as is won't freezer freeze and refrigerator cool. The bottom fan is working as normal, and I removed the back panel in the freezer and that fan is spinning just fine. The coils are defrosted and warm to the touch. In the recent past I could get the fridge to function by turning it off and back on, but that does not seem to work any longer.
Could low freon be the problem? The small roundish coolant container found in most modern fridges, as I understand it, has an a copper input and output. One is hot to the touch, the other cold. Both of my copper tubes just feel warm to the touch, not hot or cold, just room temp. Could Freon, lack of or low, be the problem?
Any suggestions on what my next check-step before I spend a fortune on a repairman that may or may not repair the problem. Or should I just buy a second hand for $150 on Craigs List. Many Thanks!
