Can you feel air blowing out of the vents in the freezer comparment.sounds like the evaporator fan is not running. this is common with refrig's that have been stored for a long period of time. the fan motor bearings will seize.the motor is easy to replace your self. remove the screws in the rear panel of freezer compartment you will see the fan at the top of the coils. the fan can be purchased thru sears or any appliane parts distributor. you will need a omplete model number off of the unit it is loated near the ceiling on the right hand wall of the refrig section. good luck peyton

Freezer not working on Kitchenaid KFIS29BBBL00 Refrigerator Freezer


Is the compressor running non-stop - or is it satisfied at 45 degrees? If it has stopped - the thermostat could be junk. If it is running, the refrigerant coils in the freezer may be choked with frost. This means that the defrost circuit has a problem. One or possibly more of the defrost timer, defrost heater or defrost terminator has failed and will need to be replaced.

You can check by removing the food contents and unplugging it and allowing the freezer to defrost for 24 hours with all doors open. The freezer floor may get filled with water - so be prepared or lay several towels inside to absorb it. Plug it back in and set temperature to 34 - 35. If the temperature settles down to the temperature, the defrost is likely the problem.

I have a 1997 kenmore side by side fridge that was given to me . looked real nice but sat for a long time.I have replaced the temp. control,ice maker,water fill valve and all water lines due to freeze...


It is not necessary to cycle each hour if the fridge can retain its temperature. Have a temperature check just before it starts having a cycle and at the end of it.

I have a ebac bd80 and the coils stay frosted ,


Frost means one of two things, low refrigerant or low airflow across the coil. The unit probably has lost it's refrigerant charge ( or some of it's charge) even though it hasn't been used.

Refrigerator/Freezer not getting cold


Is the fan on the condenser coils spinning? (back side of unit behind the bottom access panel.)

If it is not, the heat extracted from the fresh food/freezer compartments is not being sufficiently dissipated.

As a short-term fix, you can aim a box fan (a regular ol' room/window fan) at the condenser coils.

Kenmore upright frost free freezer compressor will not come on...


mlee62599,


You have a freon leak and the coolant leaked out. Perhaps when you mode it down the stairs one of the coils with the freon in it ruptured a tiny hole.

You need an authorized and certified tech for freon.

WHIRLPOOL TOP FREEZER ET1WTKXKQ01. NOT COLD ENOUGH


You need to look inside the freezer at the rear wall cover and see if it is frosted over. If your refrigerator is not defrosting that can cause the refrigerator side and the freezer side also not to cool to the desired temp.

Moved refrigerator. Won't get cold now unless at 9.


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
