    the freezer ices up so much and then blocks the air flow to the refrigerator and the fridge side stops working. A tech came and defrosted the freezer, and said it would probably do the trick, but with in days we were back to a freezer frozen and a fridge barely working. In the solution section some one said it is a switch in the back of the freezer. What is this switch called and exactly were is it?

Fridge warm, freezer has frost on back panel & is defrosting, fans work, just changed defrost thermostat, no air is moving from freezer side to fridge side, drain pan under fridge is dry


this fan needs to run when the compressor runs,check fan blade for being jammed by ice if you have this much ice on back wall as ice will stall motor,if no fan there will be no cool air to refrige compartment also the defrost drain tray will fill with water then freeze over which in turn floods the freezer floor and refrige compartments cause it cannot drain to the pan in the bottom

Freezer working but no cold air to refrig.


check the damper vent door located behind a plastic cover between the freezer and refrige compartments,also make sure the evaporator fan is operating to blow cold air through this door,if the door isnt open,then either its frozen shut due to moisture or the motor that controls it is bad

Fridge is out of gas in fridge compartment. Freezer compartment is in order


if the freezer is operating ok,then the refrige side isnt out of gas,its the damper vent door between the freezer and refrige thats not opening to let cold air into fridge from freezer,sometimes they stick shut due to ice from condensation on this door,remove grille cover on damper door and check this,if iced up defrost it with a hair dryer,then change temp selector and make sure door then moves with temp change

Older model fridge freezes on the refrig. side


check the damper door and see if its iced up this is between the refrige and freezer compartments and lets cold into refrige from freezer,if it ices up in the open condition the refrige control cant change the temp,defrost the door and then see if the control moves the door,if so also check the door seals to make sure they are sealing good so as not to let warm air in that can condense and freeze things like the damper door

If the freezer is staying cold it sounds like a defrost system problem. A bad timer, heater or thermostat can cause frost to build up on the coils and block air flow to the refrig side. Check out ACMEHowTo.com for troubleshooting the defroster problem.
There is a small duct between the freezer and refrigerator side if this is blocked the frig side won't cool.

Check the circulation fan in the freezer compartment that circulates the cold to the fresh food compartment. If its not running, and no ice is on it to bind uo the blades, replace the motor.

Jenn Air JCD2389 fridge not cold on fridge side


You have plugged the defrost drain line.This is where the water goes to in the bottom of your freezer when it goes through the defrost (removal of ice from the freezer coil) cycle. It sounds like that hole is plugged and now the water/ice has now frozen in the vent that lets air circulate down into your refrigerator compartment. What I usually do in this case is to unplug the refrigerator, empty out the freezer compartment. Usually I also end up either pulling off the back panel or the bottom panel (in the freezer compartment) Looking for that defrost drain hole and thawing it out with a heat gun (be careful of melting plastic) or actually I use a hair dryer. I can sometimes do this also by pouring small amounts of HOT tap water onto it and then sopping/absorbing it away with a sponge or dishcloth. I repeat this until I get the water to go down the drain tube.

Try it and let me know!

The refrigerator/freezer isn't cold anymore. The light is one. The icemaker is still running, but no ice. The refrig. side started to go first, then the freezer side about 5 days later. Now it just blows...


Remove back wall cover from freezer compartment. Should have a nice even frost pattern. If large amount off ice buildup is on evaporater than air can not flow through entire unit correctly. This means that unit is not defrosting properly. Check continuity on defrost heater, if good replace defrost thermostat, located as a clipped on device at top of evaporater.

change the adaptive defrost board located in the upper right corner of refrig under the panel. remove panel by pulling on panel towards you from the finger holes in the rear. remove two 1/4 inch screws and two phillips screws. defrost manually with hair dryer behind panel in freezer.
