Re: refrig & freezer is getting warm - compressor is...
I need to know the RATE at which it runs. If this is happening within minutes or less, the problem is the Compressor starting relay. This is inexpensive and the relays are availible locally. Check the wiring diagram for replacement.

this fan needs to run when the compressor runs,check fan blade for being jammed by ice if you have this much ice on back wall as ice will stall motor,if no fan there will be no cool air to refrige compartment also the defrost drain tray will fill with water then freeze over which in turn floods the freezer floor and refrige compartments cause it cannot drain to the pan in the bottom
tempt in freezer is or should be 15 deg or lower to 5deg/ the ref gets its cold from the freezer . so if freezer is failing the soon so will the fresh food side . look for ice (frost build up on the back of freezer . / and if so the cold coil is blocked and there is no air flow through it .. if you find this you have a defrost system failure . ck the heater in freezer and the defrost terminator and the aditive defrost control . these are the things that cause this problem. A D C is most common .. hope this helps mm
May have defrost problem. Do you hear fan running when you open freezer door. If you do look for frost on back wall. If there is frost on back of freezer you have defrost problem. If freezer is just cool and ref. warm the compressor is not running. Overloads on comp. have gonebad in this case. All of these are well worth repairing. Hope this helps.
This sounds like the beginnings of a defrost problem and in this order the parts that cause the problem are first and most likely the defrost control part number 67001036 Then 12049801 defrost heater and last defrost thermostat part number 67003272 To test the defrost thermostat locate it through a small hole in the fresh food compartment control panel and turn clockwise slowly until you hear the compressor stop. Wait about 25 minutes until the timer turns the refrigerator back on. If it does not come back on the again turn the timer slowly clockwise until the compressor and fans restart. During the time the refrigerators is in defrosting open the freezer door and listen for the sounds of sizzling and crackling. This is defrosting taking place and normal. The thing is the defrost timer needs to work properly to cause this to happen. The result of these three things not working causes the evaporator in the rear of the freezer to freeze and block airflow. The fresh food section is noticed to become warm first and as the evaporator continued to collect ice the problem even gets worse.

http://appliancepartsse.blogspot.com Defrost heater 12049801 Defrost control/Timer 67001036 67003272 Defrost thermostat These are the most likely reasons so if something does not work please let me know first before giving me a poor rate, Thanks, Sea Breeze
When the compressor is running, if the fan by the compressor and the fan inside the freezer are both running, and there is no frost on the back wall of the freezer (if there was frost would indicate a defrost issue) then check the air dampener. It is located at the very top left back side of the fresh food section. If it is not opening up, no air will flow from the freezer compartment (where all the cooling takes place) into the refrigerator section.
Your refrigerator may be stuck in defrost cycle. I know it has a defrost timer part number 215846602 Most times they are located inside the fresh food compartment behind the control panel. Sometimes below fridge and behind kick plate. The thermostat could be defective also. You can check that by unplugging the refrigerator remove cover and checking continuity between the two male connections located on the rear side of thermostat control turned as cold as you can turn it. Or you can join the two wires together and plug refrigerator back in to see if compressor comes on. When you find the defrost time turn clockwise slowly until the refrigerator starts. If these don't work let me know and we will do some more test. Sea Breeze
Chances are if they are getting cool but not cold-
1) the evaporator fan in the freezer is not running 2) Defrost heater has failed 3) Defrost sensor has failed 4) Defrost timer/refrigerator control has failed.
Check for ice build-up on the back wall of the freezer. If there is ice, unplug or turn the unit off for 6-8 hours with the doors open (put any food in a cooler with ice to maintain). Note water may come out of the refrigerator. Plug the unit back in or turn it back on, close the doors, and check temperature after a couple of hours of operation. If all OK, you will need to have the above tested, or, if you know how to use a multimeter and can read a schematic/wiring diagram, I can instruct you on how to check the above.
it.s the frezer that makes the refer cold.the evap fan in the frezer moves that chilled air to the refer.if that fan is slow or any blockage inthe air ways it slows that process.Also the frezer should be close to 0 degrees if theres a defrost prob that would make fresh food warmer
