SOURCE: Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refridgerator

I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........

In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.

Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.

Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)

Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.

SOURCE: Icemaker not working, freezer not getting cold enough....

Try using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.

Hi, yes, your thermostat could be faulty, yes there should vent( damper), check controls on freezer side, controls amount of cold air going to ref. side, yes could be stuck by ice, yes both adjustment are necessary, check manual, some thermostat are very sensitive, you should adjust gradually, wait for about 40 minutes, before adjusting again. yes there's vent flap (damper) yes that could be your problem, normally they get stuck with ice, remove covers to locate it., you 're smart, you will see, damper, good luck.

SOURCE: Refrigerator section does not cool. Light or LED

these refrigerators are notorious for a bad main/mother-board being bad,especially if recently you had light bulbs have burned out in the refrigerator compartment as this creates a surge on this board and burn the printed circuit trace on the board,it is located in the lower rear of the unit and is housed in a plastic case and if you open the case and look at the board and case there will be a burn spot on the plastic case also

Testimonial: "One of the two light bulbs is burned out. The burned out bulb is on the same side as the refrigerator control. I will look at he board. Thanks!"

Why is my freezer working but not my frig in frigidaire upright with seperate doors


Check the rear is clean and clear. The condenser should be warm, not hot. If it cools down towards the end of the rungs and the last bit is cold. suspect short of gas.
Further check any fans etc and remove any excess ice, and make sure the door seals ok.

Makes ice but is very slow to dispense and makes a load bumping noise


Turn off the water to the icemaker. Locate the plug from the icemaker to the freezer & disconnect it. There is usually 2 screws under the icemaker that mounts it to the freezer, remove them. Some may have a screw or 2 in the top also. these are only short sheetmetal screws. You should then be able to extract the icemaker, a short hose attatched to the icemaker will come out of the back of the freezer. When complete the freezer/frig will work fine. Thaw out the icemaker, drain the water out, inspect the rotating finger grate area for any objects. Shaking it upside down may help. Reinstall & test, if it doesn't work it is bad. You can take it to an appliance repair store to replace.
