It's a Maytag freezer on top, freezer working fine, evaporator fan running as should, no cold air being forced into fresh food. Is there an air baffle, what controls it? Thanks for any help?

Here's the parts diagram for your model:
#11 is the air damper that makes the cold freezer air come into the fresh food section.

Its been discontinued.

Thanks Jake, So it's electrically controlled instead of mechanically like some of the old GE's? I suppose I could take it down and fix it in a set position.

thanks for you input, I worked in appliance repair many years ago. Things have changed a lot since then, electronic touch pads etc. but I still repair my own appliances and occasionally a relative's.
