OK, if the fan is not working and you have ice buildup on the coils, you will need to replace the defrost thermostat and the fan.
Here is the thermostat to order.

is it frozen up? do you have any air flow thru the air tunnel from the freeze to the fridge? Check your air flow with the door switch pushed in. also check to see if the damper door opens... 1) if it is iced up you have a defrost problem. most likely a defrost timer. Turn off or unplug untill all the ice has melted off the evaporator back of the freezer..plug back in and it will work fine untill the ice builds up again. if this work you do have a defrost problem.. if not let me know and we can go deeper...

SOURCE: freezer cold, fridge warm

Hi, You have a self defrosting problem.
Remove the rear inside freezer panel and check continuity on the defrost element and bi-metal switch.The bi-metal has to be tested cold. If there is continuity on both parts, you will need to change the defrost timer.
The most common part that goes bad is the element. I hope this helps you. Please leet me know if I can assist you further.

Problem seems to be solved. I unplugged it for a short time and plugged it back in. I'm guessing it needed to be re-set.

SOURCE: GE profile refrigerator line freezes, fan blows but no cold air?

OK, I think I understand. Thing is we need to do a few things to see if your control board is the problem or if the fan or a freon leak is the answer. You need to tell me if this began suddenly or if over a period of time. I have been having trouble lately from Fixya if the customer (YOU) responds to my solutions. Let me know if you want my help and I will see if I get a email letting me know of your response, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Refrigerator and freezer not cool


Try unplugging the fridge for a day or two and then plug it back in and see if it starts working. If the refrigerator has froze inside and the defrost system is not working, letting it thaw out for a day or two may bring it back to life, until it freezes again. The fan inside the fridge must circulate air, it must be working or it will allways freeze up and not cool.
The fan and compressor must also be working underneath the fridge. When working properly, one of the lines from the compressor will feel hot and the other cool off. The radiator coil must not be clogged and air should flow freely thru it with the fan running.

Amana BR22VL refrigerator section stopped cooling.


is there any frost on your food packages or on the ceiling where the light is?if so the door was left open and the air vents are froze up or you have a bad damper or evaporator fan motor,open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing?if so the fan motor is good,check for ice on the ceiling and packages,if that checks good look at the back inside wall of the freezer,if that's covered with like snow or frost you have a defrost problem or also you have a damper in your model,it's closed and won't open to let the cold air in from the freezer.
http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Damper/R0161050/223353
go here,this is the part,all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,the evap fan blows the cold air from the freezer up into the fridge section,in your model the damper door opens to let the cold air in,when it gets cold enough the damper closes and that's it,so if the door wasn't left open and the fan is blowing in the freezer you have a bad damper.

I have a 23' free standimg dispensing side by side ref. my ref is not cooling but the freeze part is working


when you open the freezer door do you hear the fan blowing?all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,the evap fan blows the cold air from the freezer and into the fridge side,there are ducts on the bottom left side where the air return sto the freezer,if that's blocked the fridge will get warm,also if the fan is blowing depending on your model you could have a damper,it's in the fridge section up top where the cold air blows into,all it is is a door that opens and closes to let the air in when the fridge section gets warm and then it closes when it's cold enough,if the damper is bad it won't open and let the air in,sometimes it gets stuck in the open position and things start to freeze in the fridge section.if you can't figure it out send the model number and i can see what model you have,open the fridge door,look up on the right side near the ceiling and you should see a tag with the model number.good luck and have a great weekend.also from the bottom up in the freezer,remove the second bin of food and touch the back inside wall of the freezer,if there's frost or like snow on the back inside wall of the freezer you have a defrost problem,let me know what you find.

Fridge not getting cold...but freezer is working


the fridge gets its cold air from the freezer fan blowing it through small air passages between the freezer and fridge. when you adjust the temperature in the fridge you are increasing/decreasing the amount of air being let into the fridge. Two common problems that could cause the freezer to freeze but not the fridge getting cool is the freezer coil is frooze like a ice cube blocking the air going to the fridge or freezer fan is not working could be bad or froze up due to too much ice. If fan works after manually defrosting problem could be in the auto defrost mechanism. If fan don't work after manual defrost replace fan. Manual defrost by putting a pot of very hot water in freezer with door closed change water foten until defrosted.

Whirlpool freezer won't freeze


you need to send the model number so i can see what fridge you have,is it a side by side freezer on top or bottom.check the back inside wall of the freezer to see if any ice or like snow is on the back inside wall of the freezer,if so you have a defrost problem,if it's a top freezer is there any water leaking into the fridge section,check under the crisper draws,if water is there you could have a blocked drain in the freezer,the water that's from the defrost mode leaks into the air ducts and freezes,or you could have a freon leak in the sealed system,remove the inside back wall of the freezer and check the frost pattern on the evap coil,if there's frost just on the top of the coil and nowhere else on the coil you have a freon leak,one more thing you could have a bad evap fan motor,open the freezer door,you should hear the fan blowing around,open the freezer door and push and hold the door or light switch in for a minute and then let it out,if the fan doesn't run it could be bad.the last thing is the compressor isn't running and you're hearing the condenser fan running and not the compressor,the start device on the compressor could be bad,feel the compressor,is it hot and feel it to make sure it's running.so bad start device,freon leak,defrost problem or bad evap fan motor or condenser motor.if you get back to me and let me know what you find and send the model number i can help you better.

Fridge is warm, was collecting water inside. Freezer is working fine. Increased temp but not responding. It is a bottom freezer model


send the model number off of the fridge,if the freezer is working fine then no air is being blown up to the fridge section,all it does is blow cold air from the freezer to the fridge section so either the door was left open and this is very common with a bottom mount freezer or the evap fan isn't blowing or on some models there's a damper inside the fridge section,the damper door opens and closes to let cold air in,when it reaches temp. the door closes,sometimes the door gets stuck in the closed position or the open position and the fridge freezes or gets warm depending on where the door is.first thing open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing,if not you could have a bad evap. fan motor,next look at the ceiling and on the packages,do you see frozen water droplets,if so the door was left open and the air ducts are froze up from the warm air getting in from the door being open and mixing with the cold air freezes up the air ducts,also stick your hand onto the back inside wall of the freezer,if there's like snow or frost on the inside back wall of the freezer you could have a defrost problem,bad defrost thermostat,heater,timer or board depending on the model or last a bad damper,when you open the fridge door there are air ducts usually up top and in the middle you should feel cold air blowing in,this is your problem the air isn't making it into the fridge section.if the door was left open,unplug the fridge,remove the food from the freezer and with a hair dryer heat up the back inside wall of the freezer and blow the hot air into the air vent holes in the back wall to melt out the air ducts,keep heating it up until you don't see any more water dripping,you can see the water dripping through the vent holes.so let me know what you find,send the model number and we can go from there.look up near the ceiling in the fridge section on the right hand wall and you should see a tag with the model and serial numbers,send the full model number so i can see what you have in your machine.

Freezer not freezing but cools like the refrigerator would. Refrigerator not cooling enough. the cover in the back of the refrigerator was off. I reconnected but the freezer still won't freeze


is the freezer fan running? is there frost on the rear freezer wall if so it would be a defrost issue. if no frost on freezer rear panel it would sound like a bad compressor or sealedsystem leak.
