    I have the same problem with my GSS25SGMDBS. I have replaced the freezer fan and mother board. How can I test the freezer fan motor? What voltages and where do they come from ? Wire colors ? What else could it be?

My frige & freezer do not cool,light & freezer fan run,compressor & coil fan do not run,air is blowing out of air vent in freezer,no cooling at all


If the compressor isn't running, the refrigerator or freezer won't cool - period. Hopefully, by now, you've had a repair technician come and troubleshoot the problem.

My Maytag MFF2558VEM Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator doesn't keep cool


What you should be looking for is a blocked air flow. The fan in the freezer will push air up to the fridge and cool it off. Look for a dead fan motor in the freezer or a blocked air vent Good luck

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.

I have a small Roper Top Freezer refrigerator. Twice the freezer coils iced up and I had to defrost them. Each time the freezer came back to a low temp (in the teens to zero) but the refrigerator will not...


Hello James; It sounds like you have a couple of problems. One with the defrost circuit which is made up of the defrost heater, defrost thermostat and the defrost timer. Since it is a Roper it could be any of these items. You can check the heater and thermostat with a multimeter and if you have no resistance on on the heater it is good, the thermostat will have a very low resistance (28 ohms is normal), and it both are good then it is the timer. Now for the main problem, since you say the fan is operational and the cooling tubes are open then I would suggest you run a wire (14 gauge or guitar string) down the drain on the refrigerator side and clear the blockage. I know this doesn't make much sense, but although the fan is pushing air out of the freezer into the refrigerator section (at least somewhat) it has to have air ciculation so either your drain is blocked or the lower cooling tube is blocked preventing a complete circulation path. BTW if you have had cooling tube blockages in the past you can use a strand of wire (14 gauge) hooked over the defrost heater and down the top cooling tube to keep frost from building up.

Our 3 year old Kenmore refrigerator is not cooling. What could be the problem? (The freezer is working.)


check the fan that runs from the freezer to the fridge that it is running and not blocked or stuck if needed service the fan or replace if not repairable---if fan good than check fan duct that damper is operating properly the fridge uses the air from the freezer to cool it down

Refrigerator compartment cools correctly for a few days then no longer receives cold air from freezer. The freezer continues to operate and gets much colder than it should.


does your fan blow? freezers have a fan that pushes cold air to the fridge side if fan is bad freezer will run extremely cold and fridge won't cool down and since frige won't cool down thermostat in fridge doesn't tell compressor to stop

Not cooling after smoke damage


Assuming that the motor is running, my best guess would be that the condenser (a large grid of thin piping) was covered in soot, and should be THOUROUGHLY cleaned, preferably with compressed air.... The condenser will either be underneath the unit, behind a small panel in the front bottom of the unit, or at the back behind a cover at the bottom of the fridge which runs the whoile width. Make sure the fan at the back near the compressor is also running....if the condenser fan is not running when the compressor is running, it won't cool. If the condenser is excessively dirty, it won't cool!
