Maytag Performa refrigerators are designed to withstand normal everyday use. If problems occur with the refrigerator, troubleshooting steps may allow you to identify the source of the problem. Most basic issues can be resolved without seeking further help.
Check the temperature control if the refrigerator does not seem to be working. Adjust the control to a colder setting if it is on "Off" or "0."
Inspect the door seam if the refrigerator runs too frequently. Make sure nothing is keeping the door from shutting completely, such as a package or container.
Completely cover all foods in the refrigerator to eliminate odor problems. Foods that produce odors should be wrapped or covered. Clean up any spills inside the cabinet.
Open the refrigerator door less frequently to prevent excessive moisture from building up in the crisper drawer.
Adjust freezer control to a colder setting if foods are not freezing properly. Foods with a high sugar content may not freeze completely.
