The most likely cause of this is the starter or what is called the overload/relay on the compressor. this is the piece that sets on the compressor and has the wires going to it. There may be some sort of a hold on clip. Remove it and the componet pulls off. Mahe a diagram of what you are doing so you remember how it goes back on. ALSO- unplug the unit before you touch it!

Frigidaire fridge and freezer will only blow slightly warm air. Have both turned as cold as they will go. Not making any noise. Tried unplugging for a while but nothing changed. Any help would be...


Did this happen all of a sudden? or did the fridge slowly get warmer and then stop working after a week or more? i'm suspecting a comp issue, or a leak atm. leak if it slowly stopped, and comp start device most likely if it was all of a sudden. the tstat is working because the fan is on.

My maytag fridgerator has suddenly stopped getting cold. My freezer is fine and stays cold. Troubleshooting it did not work. Please help.


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it'll be the control.

All of a sudden stopped getting cold in the fridge portion, freezer is fine


If you completely defrost the freezer and restart the unit and it doesn't get cold in the refrig portion it could be the internal fan that moves cold air from the freezer to the frig area if it does get cold after an hour or so then it is probably the defrost coil needs replacing. I am not familar with your exact model but this senario applies to many different units.

Ice maker stopped working, plus fridge not cold, but freezer o.k.


I would check that fan motor in the freezer section is running. it distributes cold air from freezer into refrig section also if this motor is running the top portion of freezer will not get cold enough to allow ice production. the motor is easy to repl and is mod# specific you should be able to buy one online.

The refrigerator is not keeping tempurature. Freezer is working fine


Either the freezer fan has stopped blowing air or the defrost timer has stopped and the airways to the fridge are clogged with ice. Only the freezer gets cold in a refrigerator. The fridge part gets cold by cold air being blown through air passages from the freezer. Good Luck!!
