There is another fan under the refrgerator usually near the compressor. if this fan is not running then your freezer will not freeze. If this fan doesnt work your fan or your defrost timer is bad. please rate me

Freezer side not cold enough, similar temperature as Refrigerator side


It could be many things. My first guess would be the defrost. The coil that gets cold in your freezer builds ice on it and the only way to get the ice off is to run a heater near the coil long enough for the ice to melt. All freezers have something built in to defrost and domestic are typically just an electric heater on a timer. When your freezer stops working again, you may want to pull open the panel of your freezer and see if your coil (a heat exchanger that probably looks a lot like your car radiator) is covered in ice. If it is, it could be the timer or the actual heater that is bad.

Freezer not cooling


there is an external fan near the compressor usually at the bottom of the unit on the back side and if this fan does not run the freezer will not freeze. u can also look for a defrost timer located near the bottom of the refrigerator with the door open or just under the freezer in the refrigerator compartment. It will look like a plastic screw that can be turned only one way with a flathead screwdriver because of its design. Some times these timers just get stuck and will work again if u rotate it with a screwdriver one revolution or two. Allow an hour to see if freezer works after tuning. Please rate me
