Its the problem of the motor which runs the fan.that motor needs replacement.a very chance it can be possible that the motor is perfect but the wirings from the motor which connects to the fan are faulty and got cut in between.but it can be possible.so first check out the wirings if they r perfect then its faulty fan  motor.get it replaced. thanks.

Top half of upright freezer is warm


Hello Karen;



My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.



The top half of your freezer is warm because your cooling (evaporator) coil is on the bottom.



With your unit there are generally two cooling problems:



1.) Frozen Drain - You freezer will go through a defrost cycle every 8-10 hours. When this occurs, everything shuts down with the exception of your lights. Your defrost heater turns on for about 20-30 minutes, defrost you cooling coil and them turns your unit back on.

Most common, is that you have a frozen drain. If you have a frozen drain, when your unit goes through the defrost cycle, if your drain is plugged then the condensate builds up on your cooling coil and restricts the air flow. Use a hair dryer and melt the ice.



2.) Freezer fan motor is bad - Your freezer fan motor may be bad. This is easily replaced.



Ok, Lets get it done. I have faith in you.

a.) Unplug your unit.

b.) With a screw driver remove the 6 screws holding the bottom cover. You control may be in the way.

c.) I know you can do this. Remove the back cover. Is you cooling coil blocked with Ice? Defrost with a hair dryer. Do not use metal tools, you may damage the cooling coil.



b.) After defrost, Is you cooling fan running. You can do this as well. There are only two contacts to remove and a ground wire. If it is not running purchase a new one.



I have faith in you Karen. Call me and I will walk you through this.

I would replace the defrost termination thermostat. They were a frequent failure item on
Frigidaire units I service, causing this condition. Around 8 to 20 dollars depending on
vendor. Also check the defrost timer as I have found at least one that was stuck due to
mis assembly. (the replacements are from a different vendor). Hope this helps.

Temperature Alarm


Can you look behind the food and shelves at the back wall near the bottom, if there is a frost build up on the back wall we have an issue with the defrost system, this would cause poor air flow and loss of cooling. I do not have your model number but I am assuming since it is a frost free unit it has an internal fan. If so is the fan running inside, can you feel air out the vent in the top? If not your fan motor may have gone out. The next thing to check is feel the side walls of the freezer, they should be warm. If they are not the compressor may not be running. Let me know the results of these questions and we can go from there.

My freezer will freeze for about 2weeks then it starts to get warm when I turn it off for about 6hrs it will refreeze


It sounds to me like the defrost isn't working somewhere.It freezes for 2 weeks until the evaporator coil freezes over and you lose your airflow, hence, your cooling. Then when you shut the unit off for 6 hours it thaws out enough to get you cooling again for 2 weeks.Check your defrost timer and see if it is going into defrost and if your defrost elements are good. Both will be located on top of the unit. Good luck!

Both Lights flashing and fridge not getting cold


I turned the fridge and freezer off using the circular dials, I then turned the unit off at the mains. Left it for a few minutes and then turned the power back on. I then turned the circular dials to "max" and then depressed the super cool and super freeze buttons to turn this facility on. This time they came on normally (not flashing) and no alarm sounded. The fridge and freezer then started to get cold. Once the unit had been running for several hours I then turned the dials to the 3/4 mark and depressed the super cool and super freeze buttons again to turn them off. Over night the fridge and the freezer appear to be working properly so I hope that my problem is solved. Maybe the unit just needed to "settle" before being switched on?

I have a Whirlpool side by side fridge freezer (brand new only 2 days old) the alarm is going off and the two lines side by side on the freezer side are flashing?


The alarm is set off when the freezer is out of the differential range of the setpoint. In other words, the freezer is still too warm. If you press the alarm button, the sound will stop but the light will stay on. If the unit is working correctly and cooling properly, this light should go out once the cabinet temperature gets close to the setpoint temperature. Hope this helps you.

Unit not freezing , evaporator fan wont run


If this is a Bev-Air, don't think the door switch will control the fan. At the evap, there is a temp sensor called a fan delay. When unit goes into defrost mode, this warms up. Some also serve a dual purpose. It will terminate the defrost cycle at a certain temp., say 51 degrees or so, at the evap. Anyway, when unit comes out of defrost, it keeps the fan off so it allows the evap to cool quicker and to prevent circulating warm air. This could be your problem. Not a hard fix but they can be a pain sometimes. Outside chance that the unit is low on refrigerant (freon). This will not let the evap get cold enough to trip the sensor back into position to turn the fan on. Good Luck. Restaurant Parts and More carry alot of Bev-Air stuff. 1-888-814-1110. Ask for Rick
