Fridge not freezing meats


I was writing a big note here before then hit the wrong button, it was just a bunch of jargon anyway. Yes it is the condenser fan motor causing your problems. Doesn't cool the refrigerant properly than nothing works. I would change the fan before it causes any damage to the compressor.

My amerian fridge freeze the fridge is frezzing everything


Hi,

Most times this is a bad cold control, but there are other things to check for. Make sure the condenser fan is working and the coils are not covered with dust. A separated heat exchanger ( small capillary tubing soldered to the large suction line ) can separate from one another and make the fridge run too long. - tape tubing back together. A poor working evaporator fan motor could also make the fridge run too long and freeze - replace the fan motor. An inefficient compressor or refrigeration system could make the fridge run too long and freeze - have a service tech check this out. A misaligned control settings, make sure the air damper and cold control have not been bumped and are out of normal settings. Stuck open air diffusers or air dampers are becoming more and more common for allowing too much air to be blown into the fresh food section and freezing things. On all frost free fridge's the freezer temp air is blown into the fresh food section, if you have "easy" to freeze items ( eggs, veggies in water, etc ) in front of or under where the freezer temp air comes out, they could freeze - store them in a different spot. Doors not closing properly making the fridge run too long is something else to check for.
Good luck in solving the problem as you read the above information to get your fridge freezer back again...

Sub zero 532. freezer works fine --0 degrees. fridge wont get below 50 degrees. cleaned condenser fins- still no decrease in temp


check the fan that runs between the freezer and the fridge --check fan for ice blockage -debris-or damage / clean or clear blockage --if not running test wiring and connections as well as motor /repair or replace //also check fan damper is not frozen or blocked its flap that opens and closes for air to flow //----ur fridge side is cooled from the the freezer side the cold air is blown in from the freezer if fan or damper is not working correctly than fridge is usually warm and freezer is working properly

Freezer cold but other is not


In my somewhat limited experience there is usually a fan that blows cold air from the freezer side to the fridge side. I've had that fan go out before and cause this problem. I want to say that it was only like $20 to buy a new fan and put it in.

But yeah, if I'm not mistaken there isn't actually any cooling done on the fridge part of the refrigerator. It's all done on the freezer part. And then there is some sort of thermostat that controls how much cold air is blown from the freezer to the fridge.

Fridge side wont cool unless the freezer door is open


the little fan motor in the freezer is defective.  It may only be stuck.

Freezer cold but not fridge


too much ice bulid up will stop enough cold air being blown into the fridge.Try turning it off letting all ice melt then turn it back on again and set thermostat at a lower temp.There may be ice you can't see.

Fridge isn't cold


First thing I would check is the evaporator fan in the freezer to make sure its working. About the copper lines, one should be cold to the touch and the other should be hot. if both are cold your compressor may be locked up. Or if its a whirlpool build unit I would also check to make sure the relay on the ompressor is good.Pull it off the compressor and shake it. If you hear like a lot of little pebles shaking in it its bad and need replacement. that was a common problem with some whirlpool units. If that is good remove the back of the freezer and check the evaporator coils to see if there is a frost pattern on it. If not your compressor like I said may be bad or you have a refrigerant leak and there is no more gas in it. Good luck
