You may have lost coolant from the system and some coils can look superficially OK but have pinholes that have allowed the refrigerant to escape. There are safeties in cooling systems that monitor the pressures into and out of the compressor and if the pressures are not right (too high or too low) the compressor will not be turned on to prevent damage to it.
The gas is not odorous or visible but the gas is detectable with a special gas detector that is part of any cooling system technician's tool kit.

--frezzer cooling,compressor working fine but ref portion warm -i have kenmore model 7182


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

I have a Hotpoint FF200eg 11.1F, all of a sudden the fridge no longer cools but the light is on. The Frezzer on the other hand works fine.


Hi,
I'm Leo
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

My Kenmore refrigerator is not cooling properly. Freezer portion works fine but not refrigerator. Came on suddenly.


I had the same problem. The frezzer worked but the fridge was not getting cold. What I have learned is that the frezzer make the fridge cold, so if the frezzer is working then something is blocking the cold air to get into the fridge. Most likely ice. The air come in at the bottom of the inside of the fridge next to the frezzer. Pull everything out of the frezzer, then unscrew the plannel that runs along the back and you see if there is ice. If so turn frezzer off and dry out the frezzer. I used hot water.

I want to know about refrigerater but without compressor ,How it run ,Which technology use it


A refrig doesn't cool . It removes heat which is why the coils get hot . With the condensor mounted on the back of the fridge , air curculation dissipates the heat from the coils . Remember , this heat , is the heat being removed from the inside , by the refrigerant being pumped by the compressor . Some fridges , have a condensor fan to remove the heat from the bottom coils , and to keep the compressor cool . The thermostat , tells the compressor to cut off , when so much heat is removed from inside the ref . The property of refrigerants , is to attract heat , and since aluminum is a good conductor , the evaporator coils inside the freezer are made of aluminum . As the coils get colder , the fan inside the freezer , blows into the refrigerator , and returns to the freezer in a circular motion , thereby cooling the refrigerator . During defrost , wheather it be adaptive or mechanical , is to melt the frost accumulated on the aluminum freezer coils . If too much frost accumulation , the frost will act as an insulation , like the insulation on wire , then the ref. will not get cold .

Defrost heater not turninh on


That model has what is called a adaptive defrost on it this fails very often it is located inside the ref under the control panel, The only other possible cause would be a defrost thermostat, this is located near the heater.

Fridge wasn't cooling but freezer was working, now both aren't


Hi,Your husband did good job, after cleaning and vacuuming, did freezer (bottom) have excessive ice?, if there's excessive ice in bottom, after cleaning, you have a defrost problem, but if there're no ice in freezer after cleaning, you got freon (gas leak) , there's a condensate loop, that passes through ref. body, from compressor that naturally develop, freon leak after few years, by rusting, normally it can be by- pass. vacuum and refill with freon, if there's no freezing, but compressor running, you'll need a mechanic, you got a freon leak. good luck.

Freezer works fine,refrierator not cold.


Check to see if the fan is running in the frezzer side. This is called the evaperator fan and it blows the cold air from your evaperator to the ref side to cool it. If this is not running then your ref will not be cooling at all.
