Inspect first the condenser at the rear or at the bottom back of the freezer. see if it is full of dirt and trash.
if it is, clean it and it could just be the problem.

if not, then observe the unit further, adjust the thermostat first to the coolest setting just to eliminate the problem with the thermostat.

keep me posted.

Model mtb1950gr. Freezer stopped working. Fan is blowing cool air up there, but everything is completely thawed. Refridgerator part below it seems to be working fine. Vaccumed back.No change.


Your defrost may be stuck on. Cool air is not the same as freezing air. Frost free freezers use less than freezing air passed over and through the food to warm any ice crystals and move the moisture out of the freezere.

Our Kenmore is a side by side with ice maker. It's about 6 years old. The ice maker quit making ice about a year ago. We didn't get it fixed. Now our refridgerator section won't cool. The freezer works...


Find the vent in the refrig that gets the air blown in from the freezer. When the unit is running you should feel air coming out of it. If not then you have a problem with the damper door. you can manually open the damper door but you might have to adjust it so it does'nt send in too much freezer air and freeze stuff.

Whirlpool Model # GB2SHTXTS00 refrigerator not cooling. it has bottom freezer...coils in the freezer are icing up... I checked the heater, and stat ohmed ok.i ran the service test everything appeared...


Sounds like the defrost timer is not tracking the time properly. The unit needs to defrost once every 6-8 hrs. in order to work. Make sure the inside (evaporator) fan is running ok. If it rund for a few days and then warms up in the refrigerator section (coil iced), then the defrost timer is the culprit.

ICE MAKER FREEEZES


my suggestion is unplug frige. for a couple of days! yes you will have to vacate everything. let all ice melt.. have mops and buckets ready for a poss. flood due to so much ice buildup. see if you can disconnect any hoses after thaw and blow in them. make sure fridge is disconnected!. look for any cracked plastic since these can become brittle in time and use 100 percent silicone to seal.
hope for the best!

Freezer is only cool, everything melting


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

New Frigidaire side by side running constantly and still warm


If the frost build up is on the back panel of the freezer then it has a defrost problem which causes a no cool situation. Let me know more about this frost buildup and what you have done.
