Cold air being heavier than warmer air will settle to the lower levels. Check for fan motor operation inside the freezer section. If the fan is not operating you meed service. Also check for frost on the back wall of the freezer section. If the fan motor does not circulate the air frost will form on the back wall, also if the defrost system is not functioning.

What causes the coils behind the panel in the freezer to freeze up and stop the freezer fan? top half of freezer defrosts, lower half stays cold.Fridge is side by side and freezer fan keeps turning of


When the evaporator fan motor stops running the top half of the back wall of the freezer will frost over and the the only reason the lower portion stays cool is because cold air falls. More than likely you have a a dc motor fan and its bad, but be wary with ge, the main control board could also go bad causing the fan not to run.

Freezer not freezing ice cream and milk


Icecream is a tough call. Some brands have to many artaficial ingredients and that doesnt get solid. What temps are you getting in the freezer? Is everything else frozen solid?

Fridgidare/Electrolux top freezer not freezing fan stays on.


Look for ice buildup on the back wall of the freezer.
If ice is there you have a defrost parts issue.
If not, check the compressor to make sure it is running.
