Question about Haier HTE18WAA Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

The outside metal around the freezer area is very warm.

The outside area around the freezer is very warm. The motor of the fridge has not turned on for zeveral days. The fan in the freezer is running. We unplugged the refrigerator for about 10 minutes. The outside of the frame cooled down. But after running for a while, the outside metal of the frame around the freezer turned quite warm again, and the motor of the refrigerator does not seem to turn on at all.

We were informed that because of a lot of power outages and surges that the freezer was in constant defrost mode. Since the freezer had been in constant defrost for at least 5 days, we were told that the condenser would probably short out. Even though the fridge was 7 years new. We decided it would be cheaper in the long run to get a newer more energy efficient one, because we didn't know what other damage had been done and if fixing everything would just be too expensive and it could quit before everything was fixed.

HOT SPOT IN FRONT DIVIDER BETWEEN FRIDGE AND FREEZER


Greg,
That is usually a heating element that is used to prevent condensation from developing in that area. It should cycle on and off and be slightly warm, but not get real hot. Check around your controls and see if there is a switch for something like Energy control or something like that, the exact term is escaping my memory, and you might be able to turn it off. Hope this helps!

Fridge not cold enough, freezer is. How to get the fridge colder?


If there is still ice in the freezer it will need to be completely defrosted for air to circulate through the coils. Make sure the fan is turning in the right direction. a generic fan motor may not be turning in the right direction and will need to be reversed by turning the armature around if this is possible with the replacement motor most universal motors are reversable and should show you how in the directions.

Frig won't cool RM2652


You'll need to get in touch with the store you bought it from but Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm




Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

Refrigerator area is not maintaining cold, freezer seems fine


The freezer is usually cooled by the compressor, the fridge is then cooled by an evaporator fan motor ($30). If this fan seizes or slows down then the fridge warms up (it sometimes starts squealing before this happens). It could be that your drain hose is clogged or frozen. Maybe the temperature adjuster go bumped.

If you think it is the evaporator fan motor:
Check to be sure you can get a replacement fan first, they last about 4 - 5 years. Can get from a parts supplier or electric motor company.
UNPLUG fridge. Located usually in top of freezer behind a vented cover plate. Remove cover, remove screws holding fan in, may have to cut wires. Replace with new motor, make sure the fan pushes air into the freezer area and doesn't spin backward drawing air from the freezer area.
