if you go here you can see the damper,fan assy. that's in the top of your machine in the fresh food side http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Damper/WR49X10091/1055112 this is a damper with another fan in it,when the t-stat calls for cold air the damper door opens to let the cold air in from the freezer and the fan in it blows the cold air around inside the fridge,if the freezer is fine and the fridge side is warm most likely this is your problem,part number WR49X10091 and it's around 130 dollars.unplug the machine,remove the light cover on the ceiling,remove the 1/4 inch screws and drop the light assy.remove thhe filter cover on the right side so you can remove the damper assy.pop off the cover on the piece that runs up the back center,remove the screws to the damper,read the instructions and put it back together again.should take you around 45 to 60 minutes.hope this helps and good luck.
all that happens is the cold air from the freezer gets blown into the fridge section by the evap fan motor brhind the inside back wall of the freezer so if you open the freezer door and don't hear the fan blowing i would say that yes you do have a bad evap fan motor and that's why the fridge section is warm.next time send the brand name and model number so i can help you better
When the freezer section gets cold and reaches
its required cooling temperature, after that the frost on freezer section
starts defrosting and the cooling fan in the freezer section blows this cool
air from freezer to fridge. But if the defrost cycle does not start then over
ice will get collected on freezer ventilations and that will block the
air passing section from freezer to fridge, so the freezer gets cool but fridge
section does not cool.Its defrost problem. Try
manual defrost by unplugging the refrigerator from main power outlet
for 24 hours then reconnect it and check, if the same problem is noticed again,.
If yes then its defrost board problem. The defrost board located in the back of
fridge section. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com or from
online sears part site. ------------- Thank you.
all the machine does is blow cold air from the freezer to the fridge side with a fan and then the air returns through air ducts,first off open the freezer door,you should hear the fan blowing,if not you could have a bad evap fan motor,next from the bottom up in the freezer,remove the second up from the bottom shelf or bin and put your hand on the back wall,is there like snow or ice on the wall?if so you have a defrost problem.let me know what you find and i can help you better
I owned my own appliance repair shop from 79 to 90. Haven't done it since. However, I will attempt to help you with this.
Makes cold but not freezing, freezer fan is running. The items that will give this issue are multiple. 1. Low refrigerant ---- not likely 2. Weak compressor --- more probable but not likely 3. faulty compressor overload protector --- more probable but not likely 3. dirty condenser or bad condenser fan motor. These cause high head pressure and mess up the cooling cycle. The compressor may be going off on a temp protector or it could be running constant. You will need to remove the back panel to see these items. If it is a dirty condenser that is causing this it will be REALLY dirty. You will know. If it is the condenser fan it can be blocked by something, normally a dead mouse, or something that was dropped in front of the refrigerator and carried by the air flow of the fan. Not so likely. Don't rule this out if you don't see it in the fan as sometimes things shift when you move the appliance. It doesn't take much to stop these motors as they are very low wattage.
Is there anything obstructing the fan area, ice build up ? It is normal for your freezer to get warm if evap fan is not working, it is essential for it to work :) A defrost cycle should kick on a timer or as needed (adaptive) and there should not be excessive frost buildup that it blocks your evap fan. I would have suggested you unplug your refrigerator for about 10 minutes and see if that resets your control board - if not, then you will need service - either replacing motor assembly or a faulty control board.
3 things to check. If you didn't adjust the damer from the freezer to the refrigerator, like closed it off. Is the freezer fan running? The fan blows air from the freezer to the refrigerator section. Some fans shut off when the door is open so you may have to push in the door switch to check this out. Look for ice on the back wall, of the freezer section, If present then the defrost cycle is not working. The evap. coil is icing up and there is no air blowing into the refrigerator. Set the thermostat back to the normal setting it just causes a longer run time on the freezer section.
