Fridges stops working randomly but the freezer works. Then the fridge starts working after a couple of days


When the fridge stops working, can you hear the fan operating inside the unit? It sounds like you have a failing evaporator fan motor. This fan motor circulated cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator.

Freezer working fine, fridge not at all


Brand name and model would help but here is a guess. Most frost free refrigerators have the main cooling unit in the freezer area side. To get the fresh food side cold, there is a small fan in the freezer side that blows cold air to the fresh food side through a duct work or trap door. If that fan stops or fails for and reason, the first place you will notice the temp rise is in the fresh food section. See if you can hear the freezer fan running. You may need to push in the door switch for the freezer light to hear the fan because they sometimes run the fan wiring through the door switch. It may stop when door is opened.

I have a kitchenaid superba ksrs25ilwh side by side fridge. The freezer is working fine but the fridge wont get cold enough even at the lowest temp


check the damper vent door for proper opening and closing as if this door is frozen shut or broken and jammed it cant open to let cold air in from freezer it will be behind a plastic grille between the freezer and fridge compartments and you should hear a fan in there running to move cold air too

Fridge at the top is not working, freeer at the bottom is working perfectly. Our fridge has stopped working, all lights are on inside. We have turned the power off and then back on again. It is only 4...


All cooling takes place in the freezer (bottom, in your case). Freezer air must be circulated into the fresh food compartment to cool it. There is a fan in the freezer called the evaporator fan, which is supposed to do this job.
1. You have a blockage in the return vent to the freezer. Remove item that is on the floor of the fresh food section and find this return vent (hole or passageway) and prove to yourself that it is clear.
2. Freezer fan is not working. You should hear it when opening the freezer door. Some units shut opff when the door is open, so see if pushing the button that turns off the freezer light does that too. If not working find out why. Fan blade stuck on something? Motor seized? Replace failed motor.
3. Defrost system has failed, allowing ice build-up on the evaporator (behind freezer back wall). Test heater, defrost limiting thermostat, and defrost timer circuit. If a circuit board determines defrost cycle timing, replace it if the def. thermostat and heater are good.

My refrigerator side is not cooling well. I see ice behind the fan unit when I take out the veggie drawers at bottom. Also fan on fridge side is making lots of noise. Noise stops when I open the door and...


.When you open the door freezer door will get stopped and so, no sound. It will work only when door is closed. Fan sound comes due to malfunction of defrost. If defrost does in right time it won't happens. Unplug and let fridge get defrost all icing. After 3 to 4 hrs,start run again, and set temp @ 5degree freezer. It will start cooling fridge compartment also. But, this is a temerory solution. To solve permanently, find out why defrost not functioned properly?
Follow this steps.
Check defrost timer working which is back of the refrigerator down corner. By with small tip screw driver in some models located in the ceiling of the fresh foodsection or behind the cold control cover. In the defrost timer,slowly turn the screw like wheel in the middle of the defrost timer withstraight screwdriver until the fridge shuts off. Now it's in defrost. If thedefrost heater(s) starts, replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. Ifthe heater(s) does not start, unplug wire cord to check ohm test for continuityof heater. If continuity is there, plug cord wire which gives power 120volts(check specification) to heater. If heater no starts, bypass defrost thermostatby join the 2 wires in the defrost thermostat. If the heater now comes on,replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. If the heater itself is bad,replace it. Thanks and hope helpful.

Model gss20iepcbb freezer side works fine ...fridge


on most units they have two controls refrigerator control is electric t-stat that runs compressor freezer control think of it as a door colder freezer door is barely open warmer freezer door all the way open all cooling coils are in the freezer and a fan moves the air to refrigerater side possible problem fan not running
door freezer control all the way closed
light switch broken light staying on door gasket not sealing tight find door switch press verify light shuts off and fan starts
look for torn or damaged door gasket can look from outside with light and see if gasket contacts case on all four sides
freezer is cold enough so compressor is ok hopr this helps good luck ron

There is a fan inside the freezer which circulates cold air through the air diffuser and then through the return duct at the bottom of the fridge. This fan may not be working. You should be able to hear it when you open the freezer door. If you cannot hear the fan going with the door open, keep the door open and press the button that switches the internal light off. The fan should run. If no fan running in freezer test for supply to fan. The fan may be faulty or the thermostat which is in line with the fan could be faulty.
