Please check your airflow around the back of the unit,
these units cannot be built in any way reguardless of the manual saying they can
the need a good inch of air for the compressor to cooldown.

SOURCE: My Avanti wine cooler, model WC3201D, stopped cooling

same problem, can not fix. Had a authorized service tech who said that you can not add freon to this unit, the only option is to plant flowers in it.

Fridge won't cool but freezer working fine


Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

I think that now that the timer has been opened it needs to be replaced. However the timer doesn't generally shut of just the fan, it's designed to stop the compressor from running and turn on the electric defroster.
Most of the time that a freezer gets cold and the fridge doesn't means that you either have a bad cooling fan or a blockage from ice. A complete defrost will ensure it's not a clog.
Even bench testing the fan is not a full proof test. Usually when you test the fan its in room temperature air and most people test the fan laying down.
The fan operate on very small bearings which are very sensitive to temperature, so testing a fan outside the fridge, you would need to test it in a cold environment and move the fan in multiple directions.
I would suggest that you purchase both a new timer and a new fan.
These items can be purchased at your local appliance dealer or online at applianceparts.com.

Thanks for your question.

Hi Rob,

The problem in your case is most probably with the defrost thermostat.

It can be found on the evaporator i.e. freezing coils , it's round disc like with two wires.

If you get this replaced with a new proper working unit ,

Also make sure you replace the defrost timer as well if the problem persists.
Hope this helps ..:)

I have a problem with my refrigerator not cooling consistently. It seems like at least once a day it will start warming up but the compressor doesn't come on. When I turn the temp up control nothing...


I believe this is normal behaviour in all auto defrost (which means virtually all modern) fridges. In fact, this short heating period is usually programmed to happen 2 to 3 times a day. You might rightly ask why the refrigerator compartment needs to undergo "defrost" cycles when the compartment is, if the refrigerator is operating correctly, above freezing? The reason is although the compartment is above freezing, its cooling coils are well below freezing temperature, and it's these coils that need the frequent defrosting, before they build up so much frost on them that they "ice up" and no longer allow the fan blown air that cools the refrigerator compartment to pass through them.

Sounds like you have a defrost problem. The timer could be playing up and taking too long to defrost, which causes the evaporator to ice up, hence no cold air to the fridge and the water line freezes up, hence no water dispensed. When the timer does eventually defrost the fridge then everything returns to normal. This could also be caused by a faulty defrost terminator or bad connection on the defrost element.
