You will need to check the fan motor inside the freezer section, remover the cover located in the back of the freezer section, if the fan is not turning you will have to replace this fan motor, this allows the air to circulate and cools the refrigerator.

    I will need to research, however I have replaced the motors in the past and that would correct the problem. Is the freezer section cool, and is any parts freezing. There may be a heating element inside the freezer also, a long tube glass with spiral wire this could be bad and need replacing.

Car over heats fans dont come on

Check fuse for cooling fan, check temperature sensor functioning for cooling fan, check relay for the fan (if you have one), check cooling fan motor circuit with resistance check (should read low Ohms, less than 2 Ohms beacause the fan is a powerful motor with 10-20 Amps).
If everything is measured O.K. you should check the wiring. Disconnect the connector at the cooling fan motor, connect a test light to the harness from the car (not to the motor side) and run the engine. Watch the temperature gauge and before you the boiling (overheating) the bulb should lit up. If not you should go back with this test step by step to the relay. The relay can be tested if you can find a same one on your relay board and swap temporary (e.g. swap the AC clutch relay with the cooling fan relay)

1994 dodge dakota has had cooling system backflushed, and it takes a good while for heat. I have noticed the cooling fan starts running quickly after truck has been turned on. Even in cold weather...

I am not a fan of back flushing as it tends to put muck in places that are normally free to flow. The system is designed to flow in one direction so if you need a radiator clean out replace the radiator as only the flowing cores will clean .The blocked cores will still be blocked. Run fault codes and look for cooling fan sensor problems . Check that the thermostat is not blocked from gunk as the engine may be heating water -turning on the fans --but the water is not circulating

Have a 2003 SE Dodge Caravan. Today in the afternoon when I was coming back from grocery store I noticed a red light on the upper right hand of my dashborad. it appears with a symbol for high temperature....

You are overheating. Check antifreeze level and Relays for the cooling fan. Also the temperature sensor which activates the relays could be bad.

My 2001 Volks Jetta started to overheat up to 260 degrees. What are the causes for this?

the advice I will give you is to leave the car completely cool down and then open the filling tank and get a smell. If it smell like burnt gasket or rubber means that you have overheated engine ,or if it smell fuel then you have to remove the cylinder head for further repairs,like renew gasket or renew cylinder head if is cracked. If it doesn't smell anything then you are lucky and you have to renew the thermostat and the coolant. There is a possibility also the water pump not to rotate the coolant and that will be noticed when the thermostat opens and on reving up the water will not move in the tank. Also the radiator possibly is semi blogged. Check it when hot and engine off by touching on the radiator vents surface all over the radiator,and if the temperature is not same all over then the radiator has to be removed and send for cleaning.

Air won't cool when the car is stopped on a 2004 chevy cavalier. car temp is normal

make sure electric coolant fan is running.if not check or replace fan relay.the coolant fan has to be running to cool down refrigerant in refrigerant in condensor is cooled back down to high pressure liquid so it can go to evaporator.see ifcoolant fan not working.the AC is not going to cool.when you driving the condensor is cooling down from moving air when car is going.when you come to a stop.cooling fan suppose to be on so condensor gased can be cooled down.

Cooling Fan, Cooling Sytem, AC; all connected?

Yes, your cooling fans need to run to cool the engine and to run the A/C. Those 2 fans are beeing used to cool of the engine and the A/C condensor at the same time. The fans actually slow down and speed up depending on how hot the car is running and on A/C beeing turned on and so on. If your fans are not rinnung, check the fuses and fusable links. They are marked on the cover of the fuse box. It sais "cooling fans" chek that. That's inside the car. Under the hood there is abother fuse box with fusable links. Check those also. There is a relay too, but check the fuses first. The relays are pretty booletproof. Do a quick check. Turn the A/C on and see if the fans are running. Let me know what you find.
