SOURCE: Fridge running but not cooling

Sounds like you're low on gas...assuming that the condenser coils are clean.

SOURCE: panel between fridge and freezer very hot and no sound at all

Dont know about the noise prob. but I can help with the over heating cabinet. Your condensing coil is dirty and needs cleaned. it is located under your refrigerator or behind the back panel. You should use a brush and vac. it out. Air must travel through the tubing freely in order to cool properly. It should be easy to find following the tubes coming out of your compressor.

It won't be the defrost timer, unusual, it will be the defrost element inside the freezer section behind the back panel or a shorted defrost klixon.

SOURCE: westinghouse silhouette frost free 522 fridge is

The heating element, located behind the back plate of the freezer, is probably not working. A failed heating element leads to a build up of ice around the evaporator coils in the rear of the freezer. If the back plate of the freezer is removed (ONLY DO THIS WITH THE APPLIANCE UNPLUGGED FROM THE POWER SUPPLY) and there is a large build up of ice around the evaporator coils then it's a fairly good indication that the heating element is not working. The heating element comes on periodically to defrost/de-ice the evaporator coils. Heating element is often activated by a small timer switch which turns the heater on for a set time every 24 hrs or so. Heating element may be open circuit or timer switch may not be operating. Most likely to be open circuit heating element.

Correct, condenser coils remove heat from the freezer compartment, thusly they will be hot. Sounds like the compressor is failing and that is probably giving off a squealing sound and stops running until it stops. Then your compressor will overheat and stop running until the thermal protector cools down and allows it to run again. Try replacing the compressor cooling fan.

Why are the sides of my upright freezer hot and the compressor very hot


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand the sides of your Frigidaire freezer are hot and the compressor is very hot. I also see that the drain plug was frozen and the coils had lots of frost, which you defrosted and your freezer began running again. It looks like your freezer quit again and started up, leaving everything hot. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose and determine what exactly is causing your appliance to be hot. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

I have a little question about the defrost. Did you see frost build up on the rear panel of the freezer. Is there no hot line coming from com compressor to condenser coil or cold from evaporator? Waiting on your answer, Sea Breeze

My GE side by side refrigerator quit working.


The automatic defrost system is not working. All frost-free machines have a heater in the freezer to melt the frost away on a timed schedule. Every day or two the defrost cycle is initiated by the defrost timer. A heater melts the frost, then the cooling system is turned back on.
