Freezer won't freeze. Temp control? Or is it the black thing on the in line for the freezer heat puller/radiator lookin thing? The fridge stays cold fine.


Set the temp control lower and yes, check the coil. Make sure they are free from dust and you have plenty of air flow around the fridge. Also make sure you do not block the air vents inside the freezer.

Kelvinator fridge not cooling


Try defrosting the fridge. Check the cold plate at the back of the food compartment once the fridge has been defrosted and turned back on again. The cold plate in the freezer (around the walls) will be cold to touch as will the cold plate at the back of the fridge,

Hi!!
Make sure the temp. settings for the fridge are set about half way, check that the small fan on freezer is working. The fridge gets cold by the air that the small fan blows thru a duct on the inside back wall of the fridge. If the temp. setting for the fridge is set too low, only a small amount of air goes into the fridge, find the vent(s) and make sure air is circulating. It is not uncommon to accidentally move the temp controls when you clean the unit.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!!

Freezer works, fridge does not. Also the sides of the fridge are really hot but not up the top near freezer section. Fridge has recently been moved. Thanks


Warm sides are usually caused by the condenser fan which is underneath around back not running. If it's not running when the compressor runs it will cause the problem you describe. You will need to remove the cardboard backing on the back of the fridge to access the fan.


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.


When it was moved, was it laid down? If it was it should be stood upright for 24 hours before being plugged back in.

Fridge not cold


you have a fan motor and blade located between the fridge and freezer. What this fan does is regulates the temp of the fridge from the coldness of the freezer. If this fan is out the fridge will be warm. The fan is losacted in the space between the fridge and freezer on the inside near you temp control switch. Look at the top of the fridge on the inside and you will see a set of vents. The fan is located behind these slotted vents. Take care in removing the plastic cover and remove the motor. Take model and serial# to an appliance parts house for proper replacement.

Hope this helped you some

I have a hotpoint model ctx18klatgrwh. Freezer


It most likely means that the air vent from the freezing unit has stuck in the closed position which causes the fridge to not be any where near as cool as it should be and if it is too cold then the vent is stuck in the open position. The vent is controlled by a small sync motor and either the motor has become faulty, the control module is faulty or the vent is iced up, which can be caused by putting too many hot items in the fridge so the steam condenses and freezes the vent in position and then the motor cannot open or close it causing it and / or the control module to become faulty. Other times it is just old age that causes the motor and / or the control module to fail.

In stand alone fridges the answer could be that the cooling panel at the rear is dirty and needs thoroughly dusting / cleaning / unblocking and checking that there is enough space around it to cool properly and that it is not near any heat sources such as an oven, air vent, microwave exhaust, etc.. It could also be caused by a problem that has resulted in a loss of the refrigerant gas and will need regassing by a service engineer. Also check that the thermostat is working correctly, turn it up and the fridge compressor motor should kick in, turn it down and the motor should turn off. Also make sure that the fridge is not iced up, or overloaded, so cool air cannot circulate inside it. Best call a service engineer asap.

Freezer at 10 deg, fridge at 50


haier refrigerators have been known to have the cold control go bad. it only sense's the temp in the fresh food section so that would be why the freezer is still ok. The problem is the control is cutting out to fast and not letting the temp go lower. from what you said i would take that there is good air flow between the freezer and the fresh food compartment. so the only thing it could be is the cold control. I would replace it and you should be all set.
