Question about Kenmore 64823 Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Fan not working?

The freezer works fine - makes ice, etc. The fridge remains cool, but is not cold. Milk has already gone bad (it's been about 2 days). The temperature controls are set properly. However, the fan in the freezer compartment is not moving. What's the problem? How do I fix this (without having to call in a repair person)?

    Also wanted to add that we've ensured that the airflow between the freezer and fridge was not iced up.

    I have replaced the defective fan motor and it worked correctly however the freg still is not cooling correctly. Does it matter which way the fan motor power is connected? How do I check to see if the air ducts from the freezer to the freg are clear?

You may have a bad Evaporator Fan Motor. You can check with an ohm meter. Caution: Please read our safety information Before working on your appliance, unplug the appliance to avoid an electrical shock hazard. The evaporator fan is located at the back of the freezer. It will be necessary to remove back inside panel of the freezer. Remove any screws that secure the back panel. Next remove any screws that secure the fan or fan housing so that you can access the fan's wiring. Label the wire placement on the fan before disconnecting the wires. Pull the connector off of the fan's terminal. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be cleaned or replaced. Remove the fan blade from the old motor and place it onto the new fan motor. The Fan blade may slip off the motor shaft. Or the blade may have a spring or "C" clip. Use a slotted screwdriver to pry off the clip Replace the fan onto the mounting bracket and back into the fan housing. Spin the fan to make certain it can turn freely. Replace the rear freezer panel and plug in the appliance.

Hi Gary,

If your evaporator is not completely frosting over (top to bottom) this normally means the unit doesn't have a proper charge or the compressor can't pump all the freon as it needs to. I would check the charge, this should read "0", if less not enough, if higher than the compressor is failing. I hope this helps.

Freezer works, fridge doesn't cool


Probably excessive ice in the condensor. Likely defrost thermostat or defrost heater problem.

What happens is excessive ice keeps airflow from the refrigerator part of the unit.

Top Freezer works fine but there is no ice building up in freezer the bottom fridge not cooling properlyThings are not as cold as they should be


Remove the back panel from the freezer to verify no ice behind the freezer panel. Look inside the air vent on the freezer panel for ice buildup. Make sure the freezer control is set to minimum not coldest freezer.. Make sure the freezer fan motor is working.

Refrigerator will not get cold, but freezer works


Make sure your fan is working ,its located behind the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked (usually with ice).With out a fan you have no circulation but your freezer may look likes its working,it may last 3 days.Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open untill all traces of ice are gone this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.

GE TFX 22CR Freezer works but not Refrigerator.


If the evaporator fan isn`t working, the frig will not circulate the cold air needed from the freezer to the fresh food compartment. You will need to remove the panel and check for ice around the fan. Make sure it can turn free. If it isn`t blocked and you can turn it freely and there is voltage going to it, the fan motor has gone bad and needs to be replaced if there.

Maytag MSD2651HES fridge not cooling freezer works find


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.
