Make sure the compressor is running and not just a fan motor.

Unplug the ref for 30 min or so and while you are behind the ref plug it back in, listen for the compressor to start. If you hear a clicking noise and the compressor never starts then replace the relay on the compressor. If the compressor runs and still does not cool then you may have a coolant problem.

Open freezer door, pull food off shelves on lower half of inside freezer and look if you have frost building up on the back wall of freezer. If you do then you have a defrost heater or thermostat possible gone bad.

Advise if you have frost build up and I will advise on how to check it.

Back of freezer has frost and freezer wont cool to proper temp. icemaker etc also not working


Did you leave the freezer door open for a period of time while the refrigerator was running? Unplug and defrost the freezer manually with a hair dryer until all frost is removed inside and in back of the freezer. Reapply power and see if it will then cool/freeze properly. Let me know the results

Why is my haier refridger not getting cold


There are alot of things that can cause no cooling...
a stuck tstat, will cause it to freeze up(electronic control)
a broken defrost timer will cause ice build up from no defrosting
out, or low on freon charge
inefficient compressor
door gaskets leaking
light switch not cutting off the light inside the cooling or freezing compartment
a bad fan motor(door) switch

I dont know how your unit works, but most only have one evaporator in entire unit..and its in the freezer compartment, and the cooling side gets it (coldnest) from the freezer compartment..with a door flap that alows cold air from the freezer to enter the cooler side.
Hope this helps..

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.
