Does not cool

It is a Haier dorm size refrigerator. It has power, the motor is hot a while after plugging it in. Sounds like it's running properly, but it won't cool, even if the temperature knob is changed.

Inside refrigerator strip between the freezer and refrigerator

The condenser fan motor at the back near the compressor is either dirty or not running at proper speeds. Clean the coils for air flow over compressor and if the fan is not running replace the fan.

Refrig. not cooling, but freezer working fine

Is there ice frosted on the back wall? If so you have a defrost problem and you need to replace the thermostat, Defrost timer and heater. This ensures the problem is totally fixed. if you can nail down exactly which of these parts is the problem then just replace the problem.

I was given a small fridge. It was built by GE and is not but a few years old! It will turn on but will not cool! Please give me some troubleshooting tips to try to fix this thing!

Most of the dorm sized refrigerators is see that run but dont cool have a sealed system problem which is either a leak or compressor problem. Look in the small freezer section. many times, people are too impatiant to defrost them properly and use a tool to chip the ice away and inadvertantly puncture a hole in the tubing causing a leak. Seen that happen quite a few times.

I have a mini fridge at school, a small Haier. My fridge is getting power and the motor gets very hot but the fridge is not cooling, not even a little... any ideas???

Hi ejb9,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You have a mini fridge at school, a small Haier. Your fridge is getting power and the motor gets very hot but the fridge is not cooling, not even a little... any ideas???

May be low on freon or cloged expantion valve. You're going to need a certified tech to check and repair. Maybe it's time to look at the cost of repair verses replacement.

Feel free contact me again!

I have a Haier HVFM20ABB that won't cool anymore and the motor is getting very hot. Any ideas?

If the motor still runs its a gas problem.
You need to get a re gas done on your fridge...

Haier model hslorwnawn refrigerator/freezer neither one gets cold or freezes.

Could be a compressor or refrigerant charge problem. Check to see if the compressor is hot. If so is it running. If not and it is hot the compressor is the problem. If the compressor is cold it is in the power supply to the compressor. That would be the thermostat or defrost timer. If the compressor is running and it is not cooling it could be the refrigerant.
