Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Refrigerator has uneven temperature from top to bottom

Compressor seems fine, freezer seems fine but a bit frosty, refrigerator is colder at the bottom than at the top. I can only assume the fan has packed in but can't access it. The back of the unit is completely sealed so I went in through the interior. I got the plate loose with the vent holes in it, but it appears to have a wire connected to what looks like it might be a thermostat, taped to the rear. Any suggestions?

My maytag bottom freezer works but the fridge is not cooling all of a sudden. Just had the compressor replaced


possible causes: bad door seals or condensate drain plugged causing evaporator coils (in freezer) to ice up, condenser or evaporator fans not on, condenser coils dirty, compressor not working, or a freon leak. if the back wall of your freezer is frosty or super cold, the coils are iced up. remove the back wall and defrost it with a hair dryer. if the water doesn't drain, unclog the drain tube. check the door seals for gaps. replace if necessary. check the fan in the freezer and the fan in the back. both should come on when the compressor is on. if not, check the fuses on the main board. replace if needed. if all that is fine, and there is no frost, you have a slow leak or a bad compressor. call in a pro or get a new fridge.

HOT POINT NOT COOLING WELL


if the condenser fan ( the one near the compressor) is not running and the compressor is running, then that's not good. try to lubricate the bushings of the fan and see if it would run. feel the blade if it turns smoothly. if it's sticcky, then there is your problem.

it should be running the same time as the compressor. if the compressor stops, the fan should stop too.

Bottom of freezer/fridge only getting cold.


Thre is a fan inside the freezer which circulates the cold air around both the fridge and the freezer compartments.
You should be able to feel cold air blowing around the inside, particularly at the top of the freezer.
If the defrost thermostat fails open, the internal fan (depending on freezer) will stop and this can be the cause of the freezer being warm at the top and no ice.
You say the bottom of the freezer is blowing cold, but are you sure its blowing, as it can feel like a cold blow. Of course the fan could have failed or may be the defrost heater itself.

This fan will be running anytime the compressor is running. If it isn't then it has failed and will need to be replaced.

Refrigerator not cooling at all but compressor is running


They'd at least be cool to the touch regardless i think. This seems dead, I had one that would clink alot. Try unplugging it, moving it away from the walla a bit and plugging it in with the freezer all the way to a 0 setting then work it up to full slowly hope this helps!
