Possible that the fan has failed, check the voltage on the connecting pin to the fan , if present the fan is faulty, if absent then there is fault in the control board.

SOURCE: Freezer is cold but not keeping icecream frozen.

If, the fresh food section is 34- 38 degrees, then the freezer should be cold enough to keep ice cream solid. All of the cooling capability comes from the freezer section. I, personally, would not waste time or money on a ten year old box. Ten years ago it cost $1000, so, the outlay is $100 per year. Dump the old refrigerator and get a new one.

SOURCE: freezer getting cold but not freezing food

Hi,

..I'm not certain here but there are a couple of things we can look at and diagnose. First, be sure that your doors close tightly. If the gaskets leak, this will allow humidity in...that's where ice comes from. If you 'windowshop', this will also cause icing. Now...let's start with a full defrost. This can take about two days with the unit open and off. Once accomplished, the next thing to do is look at the unit itself. First, underneath, is the condenser coil clean? If not, do that. Now, from the back, remove the felt panel covering the lower portion. The big thing is the compressor. If the unit has been off for more than 20 minutes, clean the big pipe off. Now, start the unit. It should develop frost on the pipe which should either freeze up or dry out after 5 minutes or so. Caution: there is a fan in there! If still frosty, you're low on gas and the unit probably has a small leak. The icemaker can be looked at by removing it. It contains a float. If the float is damaged or jammed, it will not shut off...and will overfill the icemaker. Good luck.

Why top section of my freezer it is not working?


Some time you just need to check - if upper shelf of your freezer LOADED TOO MUCH, if the food packs or any things blocking air flow on very top shelf, so it's simple and first step. Then you need to check a fan switch - it is on door frame, push it - can you hear a fan noise? No? Yes? If no - check switch, if switch is good and evaporator fan powered on - replace that fan! :)) top-section-freezer-not-working-r1jn5krxv4u25asvnln3jun1-5-0.png

Daewoo frs-U2OIC top shelf freezer not freezing


Could be the internal fan at the top of the compartment or its electrical feed is not working. With the door open, hold the light switch in (the fan usually doesn't work when the door is open) and see if it is spinning. If not, it and its connections should be checked

The bottom refrigerator don"t get cold. water was leapin on bottom shelf be fore it stop working. Thank you


Look for frost build up on the back panel in the freezer side. If there is then you'll need a defrost timer or heater. Also check to see if you can hear the fan running in the freezer, if not that's your problem...replace it. All the cold air comes from the freezer it needs the fan to get it to the fresh food side.

REFRIGERATOR NOT COLD


I have experienced this also.

If the drain under the evaporator coils in the freezer freezes up it will cause this. Because the coils ice up. Manual defrosting with hair dryer will get working again, but if drain is stopped up it repeat.
Maybe piece of paper or food in it.

OR the defroster heater element is burnt out. Same results.

Most all top Freezer Models.

Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works


There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.
