Fridge is not running at all

Lights are on both top and bottom, but the fridge it's just not running! Why is that? Is there a switch somewhere?

If you dont here the fan there is two answers. Either your temp switch or the cheap frigidaire compressor that is in your wonderful fridge is dead. No offence but it is true frigidaire is bottom end for compressors and I hope I am wrong and they put a whirlpool or ge in there and a temp switch is at fault.

Issue with Kenmore Refrigerator/Freezer


ok,1st check on fridge side toward upper back of the top and feel for air coming thru, and there is another one down possibly behind crisper .I had this same deal. Had to do total defrost,, put food in cooler,, theres two blower fans in these types of fridges,,one in the bottom back,, and one in the back of the frezzer,, I used an old hair dryer and let it blow warm to top interior of frezzer,, careful not to let any cords hang/drop in any water!!,ok once done dry out as much water as possible, turn fridge on set both controls to 4,when fridge kicks on do the feel test,, you may need to close the frezzer door, air should be felt near top inside of fridge,if so than shut fridge side and feel inside frezzer near bottom and air should be felt,, side-by-side need to circulate air from frezzer to fridge, then back to frezzer

Tip

Lights on one side fridge not cooling.


mine fridge Viking VCBB363L Bottom Freezer Refrigerator.
Took a cell phone camera in video mode and put it in the fridge to see if the light was going out when the door was closed.
Turns out. it wasn't.
This causes the lghts on the left to go out. However, the light on the right stays on and warms up the fridge.
Solution.
Top section air grill. 5 1/4 hex screws.. remove the grill you'll notice door's light switch on right side. a steel spring attached to the switch. When fridge's hinge arm closes the arm pushes on this guy and pushing in the switch button and shuts off the lights.
you can move this with your finger.
In my case switch has a little purple button.
take two pair of 3 in needle nose pliers and CAREFULLY hold center of spring and bend the end nearest you to the left.
You don't have to go crazy Just a bit.
then get you camera ready and check out your work.
Results after you've succeded, replace your parts, and notice after 10 minutes the lights all come on, the alrms stop and the fridge cools normally.
and you saved 200.00

How to take doors off Bosch Exxcel KGH39A07GB


I've just had to do this - a real pain, and you would think that Bosch would include it in the instructions or somewhere on their website!

You have to put the fridge/freezer on its back (putting a cushion or something like that at the top to make sure the back doesn't get damanged). Starting at the bottom, unscrew the three bolts holding the bottom door in place, then the middle hinge between the fridge and freezer, and then the screws at the top holding the fridge door in place. Then reverse everything round (you may have to make holes where there are dimples on the top of the freezer door/bottom of the fridge door). Good luck!

My fridge keeps filling up with water, I pulled the bottom of the fridge out and vacumed, the tray underneath is dry and I guess the fridge isn't draining properly. How do I fix this?


Yes you are correct it is not drainind properly.
Remove the back panel in your freezer and at the bottom of the evaporator coil you will see a hole about ½” in diameter this is the drain tube. You might need to use some warm water to melt the ice and then run a wire being very careful not to puncture the hose and run it down the tube to free up the drain. This tube travel down to the bottom of your refrigerator to a pan sometimes located on top of the compressor or somewhere else down there. It collects the water there to evaporate. You can enter your model # at www.appliancehelponline.com for a diagram or illustration of your refrigerator. Not all models are available.

American fridge/freezer - fridge stopped cooling, freezer side ok


Have you pulled out the refrigerator and cleaned or used a vacum cleaner to get out the dirt and dust off the back of the coils, or if the coils are underneath, you need to get an inexpensive appliance brush for fridge, and clean the coils under the fridge, pull off the panel on the front bottom of the fridge, get a flash light and look to see if the coils are covered in dust....may just need to vacum and use appliance brush underneath...this should be done at least one a year, you will notice your fridge running much better and cooling back to normal.......hope this helps......

The freezer side does not freeze on the top shelf. The refrigerator freezes everything in the bottom but reads 47 degrees and doesn't cool the top shelves. The fan under the fridge runs fine.


Behind the back wall of the freezer about halfway down, probably behind the light bulb (if there is one there) there is a fan. My guess is that the fan isn't working, or is slow. To test, open the freezer door, then hold the door switch closed and listen for the fan.

This fan should be blowing air up the back of the freezer, and send some of the cold air through a vent at the top of the freezer into the fridge. The air then descends through the fridge and reenters the freezer through a vent at the bottom. If the fan is broken, or if the upper vent is somehow blocked or broken, the cold air will enter (rather than exit) the fridge side at the bottom vent. Because cold air tends to descend and warm air rises, the cold air will freeze the stuff at the bottom of the fridge, and the thermostat (at the top of the fridge) will say it is warm.

Hotpoint FFA71 fridge and freezer suddenly stopped working


Sounds as though the compressor has stopped working. It feeds both compartments with control from a printed circuit above the top door.Where all your red lights are ablaze! (This can be replaced by removing the 2 screws and "clicking" out the small panel) Check that the compressor is running at the bottom rear of the fridge/freezer before anything else.
