Good day,

Have you tried to check on the door switch? it actually controls the lights and the fan motor to the fridge.

Freezer works but refirgerator is not cold


when you open the freezer door do you hear the fan blowing?if not you have a bad evap fan motor,if the fan is blowing put your hand on the back inside wall of the freezer,if you feel like snow on the back inside wall you have a defrost problem and have to find what part is bad with a meter,bad defrost thermostat,heater or board or timer,send model number next time,ice builds up on the coil and air can't blow into fridge from freezer,could have a bad damper,also if the freezer is on top you could have a blocked drain in the freezer,the air vents freeze up and the fan can't blow air from freezer into fridge because the air ducts are frooze up,all it does is the freezer gets cold,the evaporator fan blows cold air from freezer into fridge section,so either the fan motor is bad,the fan blade is damaged or something is blocking the air like a bad damper or air ducts are frozen up,send the model number and let me know what you find,do you hear the fan,any ice on back freezer wall or anything else you see and i'll try to help you out.

Whirpool wgi fridge freezer, fridge not cooling?


Most frideges get all their cooling from the freezer. There will be a fan and duct in the back of the freezer that pushes cold air down into the fridge. If the duct is blocked with ice or the fan motor has quit. Your freezer will work fine but the fridge will barely cool at all. Check that the fan runs when the compressor is running, ( turn both temp knobs to the highest cooling and leave door open until comp. comes on). If the fan runs your duct is plugged. If not you need a new " Freezer Fan Motor". Most are simple to replace and cost around $100.00.

My fridge wont get cool


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

I have a bottom freezer refrigerator and the freezer works but the fridge does not,,condensation forms on bottom of fridge. What is going on?


Check in the inside rear of the refrigerator cabinet for vents.When you hear the compressor running, wet your fingers and hold them in frontof the vent to check for air flow.
If it seems there is none, then the fan that is supposed to distribute the coldair from the freezer is no longer running.


If this is true, go to the Sears parts department and enter makeand model number to see if they have a line drawing illustration of your unit.
This will allow you to see if this fan is accessible enough for youto DIY or if you need a pro.

Fridge and freezer same temp.


First of all, there is only one thing that cools in a fridge and that is the freezer. The fresh food section is cooled by air forced into it from the freezer.
  • You ice maker will not work if the temp inside the freezer is above 5 degrees. It has a thermostat inside it that enables it.
  • The knob that turns the fridge off and on is the thermostat for the freezer.
  • The other knob opens and closes a damper between the freezer and fresh food section.
  • There is a fan that should be running that pulls air from the freezer into the fresh food section.
(The factory does make the discription of the knobs confussing)

Now. turn one of the knobs all the way one way and then the next. If it turns the compressor off, it's the thermostat. If it does not, try the other knob. Once you find the thermostat, set it in the middle of the scale. Now place the other knob the same. Check and see if you can either feel or hear the inside fan running. If so lets go to the back. This is where your compressor is. It is under the fridge and also has a fan that blows on it. You will need to remove the back bottom panel. See if you can tell if the fan is running. Also notice if the fan is blowing into a set if coils. You should also be able to fill the compressor, if it's hot, it's running. If these two are running, and you didn't see a coil at the fan. Take the front kick panel off the fridge and clean the coil that's under the fridge. If it's dirty, give the fridge a couple hours and see if it cools down. If so, this was your problem. If both knobs are set mid scale, both fans are running, the compressor is also running and the coils are clean. You most likely have a bad timer, compressor or thermostat. This is all that's left.

Fridge don't work after defrosting session


It depends on weather or not you damaged it during the defrost. Most fridges' are self defrosting. Look at the coils behind the back cover inside the freezer. They should be covered in a light frost if the compressor is working right. Or Is the fan in the freezer running. It has to blow the cold air around the freezer and to the fridge side. It may cut off when the door is open so hold the door switch in to check. The humming in the freezer could be the fan trying to run but can't because of a defective fan or being blocked by somthing.

Slow compressor fan


You need to remove the fan and test it somewhere different. The compressor is in need of the condenser fan. Everything will overheat without that fan working. You should also test the power at that pin plug. Let me know what you find. Sea Breeze

My fridge freezer made by samsung is on the blink


These fridges have an evaporator fan motor on both sides - the freezer and fridge side. The freezer can maintain it's temperature because that fan is working fine. I had the same problem, and replaced the evaporator fan motor on fridge side, and it solved the problem. Also, if your fan motor is not working well, or stops working, the evaporator is prone to ice build up, and will prevent proper cooling. You may want to open up panel on fridge side and see if that's the case. Taking a blow dryer to the evaporator and surrounding area (while fridge is off), or letting it sit for a few hours might solve the problem. Ultimately though, it appears as if these fan motors are prone to failure, and need to be replaced.
