    be carefull. if the defrost timer stuck, it may do so again so you may find ice build up on the evaporator

My may tag fridge GS2126PADB seems to run fine but the freezer is not blowing cold air and fridge & freezer are warm.


There are more than reason: first check the fan in the upper part of the freezer (you have to unscrew 3 bolts of the cover),second check the freezer door sealing,third is to check that the cooling tubes inside the freezer are cold enough without heavy snow (you have to unscrew about 6 bolts of the cover),Heavy snow reduces cooling and it means that the timer is not working or the heater is not working.I hope to help you in reform

Two year old Fridge with bottom freezer and french door upper. Cold freezer and a warm fridge how can we correct this?


First thing to check would be the fan in the freezer compartment, it circulates the cold air up to the refrigerator compartment

Our Top Freezer Refrigerator, Amana, doesn't seem to be cooling sufficiently. Particularly the freezer. It's about 10 years old. I've vacuumed the condenser and grille at the back.


Hi,

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.


If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...

Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

FRIGIDAIRE REFRIGERATOR PROBLEMS


Freezer stayed cold but upper compartment wouldn't. Freeze started having problems with staying cold. I just paid $377 to get the two year old evaporate fan replaced. It is located inside the frig behind the panel in the freezer compartment. It took about 15 minutes. Seems this part is part of the evaporator system but not covered by anything other than the first one year warranty. Problem solved but what a ripoff from Kitchenaid.

Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works


There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.
