SOURCE: Fan not working?

You may have a bad Evaporator Fan Motor. You can check with an ohm meter. Caution: Please read our safety information Before working on your appliance, unplug the appliance to avoid an electrical shock hazard. The evaporator fan is located at the back of the freezer. It will be necessary to remove back inside panel of the freezer. Remove any screws that secure the back panel. Next remove any screws that secure the fan or fan housing so that you can access the fan's wiring. Label the wire placement on the fan before disconnecting the wires. Pull the connector off of the fan's terminal. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be cleaned or replaced. Remove the fan blade from the old motor and place it onto the new fan motor. The Fan blade may slip off the motor shaft. Or the blade may have a spring or "C" clip. Use a slotted screwdriver to pry off the clip Replace the fan onto the mounting bracket and back into the fan housing. Spin the fan to make certain it can turn freely. Replace the rear freezer panel and plug in the appliance.

SOURCE: Frigidaire RL6003B Not Cooling The element

yes, most likely it would be the pump. Have you checked to see if it feels like it is running. What kind of help are you looking for exactly since it seems you have a bit of knowledge on what is wrong.

please let me know, thanks

SOURCE: Radiator electric cooling fan cycles on and off every few seconds

Had the same problem with a Neon same age as yours. Mine started after driving through a large snow storm that packed snow under the hood. Turned out there is a relay or sensor for the fan that had to be replaced. Once this was done the problem was fixed.

SOURCE: my refrigerator is not cooling the freezer is working

please check the rear interior freezer wall to see if there is any ice built up.If yes,that means you have a defrost heater problem.The defrost system consists of 3 components,1)defrost timer,2)the actual heater(which is located right inside the evaporator coil compartment),and 3)a terminating stat(which shuts off the the heater before the heat cycle ends to prevent overheating).There are ways to test this with a volt and amp meter. So,if this is the case,and you need a temporary fix,and I do mean temporary,(3-5 days)you can turn off the fridge for 24 hours and leave just the freezer door open until the ice melts,OR unplug fridge,then remove the interior back panel of the freezer and melt the ice by pouring hot water over the iced up coils(CAUTION:DO NOT POKE IT WITH AN ICE PICK OR ANYTHING,YOU WILL MAKE A HOLE IN THE EVAPORATOR).after ice is melted,reassemble rear panel plug it in,and it will buy you a few days. In a refrigerator, all the cold is produced in the freezer section,then through a small hole in the dividing wall,a small percentage of cool air is blown into the fresh food section.When the coils do not defrost 3-4 times a day like they should,the air cannot pass thru them and no air will be delivered to the fresh food section. Now, if you don't see any traces of ice buildup,you may have the air exchange door in the wrong position.The air door is a little door that determines how much air is passing thru to the fresh food section.Most fridges have the selector with either numbers or letters.Example A-B-C-D-E OR 1-2-3-4-5.Now when this air door selector is in the "1" or "A" position it means the maximum amount of cold air is going to the fresh food section,which in your case,is where you want it to go. Anyway if this is the case with you, after you have made the adjustment,please wait 24 hours to take effect,it's a slow process. I hope these suggestions help you. I know I probably gave more info than you needed to know. Good luck

SOURCE: Frigidaire top-mount refig. freezer won't get cold

check that the evaporator fan motor ,located in freezer is working.it circulates the cold air.also check that the coils behind freezer back panel are not iced up,this would indicate a lack of defroting due to,timer,heating element,or bi-metal.lastly when the refrig is running those coils should get frost over them all,if not you may be low on refigerant

SOURCE: Fridge Not Cold Enough

You could do the simple things like clean the dust and stuff around the compressor condenser. Check the condenser motor. Good air flow improves performance and cost nothing to fix. Of course if you are experiencing a defrost problem the air from below gets choke out with ice buildup around the evaporator area. If you have frost on the backside of the freezer section changes is you have a broken defrost heater.

Frigidaire gallery refrigerator ice maker doesn't turn off...no plastic signal bale arm?


Good day!!!!

When working properly, the thermostat turns the compressor on and off. Once the thermostat turns the compressor on, it will run until the temperature inside the refrigerator is lower than the setting of the thermostat. Make sure that the refrigerator has enough air clearance on all sides. Refrigerators with a condenser coil grid on the back of them need room to radiate the heat away from the coils.
Verify that the door light switch is working properly. Push the switch with your finger to verify the light is turning off. If the light stays on, it will actually warn the interior of the refrigerator. Fix or replace the switch if it is faulty.
Modern refrigerators that have a lot of storage and large freezer compartments run for longer periods of time. They also start and stop very frequently to maintain an even temperature. This is especially true if you have just put a lot of warm food in the refrigerator, or if it is very hot and humid. It can take several hours to get back to the cool temperature you have it set for after putting a large amount of food in it.
If the compressor is not shutting off when the temperature inside the refrigerator is cold enough, you may have a bad thermostat. You may also have the temperature set too high in the refrigerator. Try adjusting the thermostat to a lower temperature. If this turns the compressor off, you had it set too high. With the help of a refrigerator thermometer, you can find a more ideal setting that will keep your food cold, but not so cold that the compressor is always running. If raising the temperature setting doesn't help, it may be a problem with the thermostat and you will need to replace it.
If your thermostat is working properly, there's a chance that you have low levels of refrigerant in the sealed system. If this is where the symptoms lead you, you need to contact a professional appliance repair person. Only an EPA certified technician can legally work on a sealed system. If you attempt to do work on this system, you will void the warranty.
If this is a new refrigerator, it will run for a long time, almost constantly, before it gets cooled enough to stabilize the interior temperature. Allow up to 24 hours for it to stabilize. The refrigerator should be at least one half to two thirds full. This will help to maintain a stable temperature inside the unit. The cold items inside will help to keep an even temperature inside after the door has been opened and closed. Some people prefer to keep a lot of stuff in the refrigerator as ballast, even jugs of water. This helps to maintain temperatures inside so that when the door gets opened and closed often, it doesn't need to run as much to maintain the temperature inside.

I hope this information will be helpful...Thanks for using fixya...

Freezer Freezes Refrigerator Barely gets cold


Hello there:
Here is a few things to check to make sure the referigerator is working properly.
The first thing to check is the overall internal refrigerator temperature (see the Appliance Accessories section for a refrigerator/freezer thermometer). The proper temperature should be between 35 and 42 degrees. Here are some things to try: If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly. If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf. If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, we recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.
If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan. The refrigerator never cycles off The thermostat cycles the refrigerator on and off. The refrigerator normally runs as long as the temperature inside the refrigerator is higher than the set temperature. If the temperature inside the refrigerator is cold enough and the thermostat still does not cycle off, the thermostat may be defective. If so, you need to replace it, because it cannot be repaired. If the thermostat is not defective, you may have a problem with the sealed (refrigerant) system,

If the temps. seem normal, it is probably low on refrigerant. If it is freezing the milk and wilting the salad, then the thermostat has died.

If in the US, you might check with Johnstone Supply to see if they stock the thermostat used in your fridge; they are basically wholesale but have never asked for a business license and their prices range from 20-50% of dealer costs and the thermostats are only made by a few companies, they are not proprietary.

Cooler wont cool below 48 degrees.


Keep a thermometer handy. (adjust temperature control knob accordingly)
Periodically monitor temperatures inside your cooler. (adjust as necessary)
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as possible to avoid temperature fluctuations

The temperature of the refrigerator compartment is
controlled by adjusting/setting the thermostat control
knob, located on the ceiling of the refrigerator
cabinet.
To start the refrigerator, and achieve maximum
cooling quickly;
• Turn the temperature control knob (using a coin
or screwdriver) clockwise to the furthest
(maximum) setting on the darker blue section of
the graduated control dial.
• Allow the refrigerator to run at this setting for 3~4
hours.
• When maximum cooling is achieved, turn back
the temperature control knob setting to the 2:00
o'clock position on the graduated blue control
dial.
• Correct cooling temperature is a key factor to
consider in storing and dispensing draught beer.
• Optimum temperature for serving draught beer is
between 34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC)
• To maintain temperatures ranging between
34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC) We recommend the
thermostat knob be positioned at the "2:00
o'clock" setting on the graduated blue control dial.
• To turn off the refrigerator, (no cooling) rotate the
control knob to the "0" position.
