Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

I have an integrated APM 6815 fridge/freezer bought from MFI about 10 years ago. The fridge is no longer cold and the freezer has stopped freezing, but the freezer is acting like a fridge. Can anyone suggest the cause of the problem?

SOURCE: zanussi fridge freezer frostfree ZX 57/3 W not working

It sounds like you have a plugged 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 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.

Hope this helps,
Sai.

SOURCE: FREEZER IS COLD BUT NOT FREEZING WELL,FRIDGE IS NOT AS COLD AS IT SHOULD BE

Your freezer fan has stopped working or jammed. It's also possible that your defrost timer has stopped working and that the airways in the freezer are clogged with ice and the air can't circulate to the fridge. One of the two. Good Luck!!

SOURCE: freezer not freezing food and fridge not staying cold enough

Check the compressor with a volt meter, if the compressor is getting proper voltage then check the relay. But this sounds like a problem with the compressor

FRS26R4CB0-Freezer not freezing and Fridge not getting Cool


Hi Candi,

I don't know this model but most friges are the same,
Check on the bottom back, there should be a radiator with a small fan
installed.

If the fan is not working this maybe your problem,
It is not colling the gas.


You also may have a gas leak or the gas compressor is not working
or starting to work because of a faulty capcacitor.

Samsung rs2630sh not cooling or freezing


If it has fan to deliver cold air, and it is not working, cold air is stuck on the begining. So your fan could be dead. And I suppose, that compressor is running all the time. Even compressor could stert freezing if fan does not deliver cold air in fridge. The other option is, that there is not enough gas in the compressor. In this case compressor vould not be freezing, but line, going out of compressor has to be hot, if it is not, there is no gas.

Probably be cheaper to get new one, it has probably had the compressor fail or a leak in the cooling system.

Amana AFD2535DEW freezer/refrigerator with intermittent tempurature swings


I had the same issue. It was the relay overload which essentially provides the extra boost to get the compressor going. The switch tries for about 10 seconds before giving up and then retries 3 - 4 minutes later. In the early stages of failure, eventually it will work and the compressor will kick on. But eventually the switch will fail and will just cycle through the 10 second attempt every 3 to 4 minutes. The part is about $35 - part number 67005560.

Freezer/Refrigerator tempurature swinging wildly


The compressor is overheating and not starting. Could be just the start relay. If this happens again try unplugging it for about an hour then it should work for a while. Heat between doors is normal this is an electric heater designed to keep the doors from sweating. You just noticed it because the refrigerator wasn't cold.

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator too cold


On a fridge freezer only the fridge temperature is monitored. In a cold location the fridge might not even need cooling and the freezer would get too warm but the thing won't care.

If the fridge sensor sees it as too warm then it will keep the motor running and the first thing to get really cold is the freezer.

Remember the freezing part is not temperature controlled ion a fridgefreezer.
