"motor is running" ?

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

Unplug the ref for 30 min or so then while your behind the ref plug it back in. Listen for the compressor to start running, if you hear a clicking noise and the compressor never starts running then the relay needs to be replaced. If the compressor is in fact running and it will not cool then you may be low on coolant.

Check to see if the fan motor in the freezer, if working ok, check for frost on the back wall of the freezer -probably a problem in the defrost cycle - defrost timer, heater, thermostat

Refrig is not cooling. freezer cold but not freezing. Already cleaned condensor


several potential problems
1) evap fan motor isnt running to circulate air into fresh food side

2) it isnt defrosting (do ya see what looks like snow on back of freezer)

3)depending on brand or model their is a damper which isnt opening to allow air flow into fresh food section

those are 3 possibilities all of which involve the air flow into the freshfood side to be blocked off

Freezer is all deforsted. Fridge is 5 years old. We smelled a burning smell 2 nights ago and now everything is defrosted. We couldnt tell where the smell was coming from in our house. Motor is running....


If the evaporator (freezer) fan and the condensor (bottom rear) fan are both running but you have no cooling at all, the odor you smelled was probably the compressor start relay/overload device. It would be in your best interest to have a professional service technician look at it. Proper repair could mean the difference between a $60 part, or a $300 compressor. Prices are for the part only.
