1. do you have frost on your back panel in the freezer?
2, is the fan running inside the freezer?
3. if yes to number one you have a defrost problem we have to look into, either defrost timer or board, termination switch or defrost element.
if no to number one and yes to number 2 take the back panel off and see where the frost stops on the coil. you can tell.. if so you just better throw the machine away its either A. does not have freon or B the compressor is getting weak.

Fridge warm, freezer has frost on back panel & is defrosting, fans work, just changed defrost thermostat, no air is moving from freezer side to fridge side, drain pan under fridge is dry


this fan needs to run when the compressor runs,check fan blade for being jammed by ice if you have this much ice on back wall as ice will stall motor,if no fan there will be no cool air to refrige compartment also the defrost drain tray will fill with water then freeze over which in turn floods the freezer floor and refrige compartments cause it cannot drain to the pan in the bottom

Fridge is out of gas in fridge compartment. Freezer compartment is in order


if the freezer is operating ok,then the refrige side isnt out of gas,its the damper vent door between the freezer and refrige thats not opening to let cold air into fridge from freezer,sometimes they stick shut due to ice from condensation on this door,remove grille cover on damper door and check this,if iced up defrost it with a hair dryer,then change temp selector and make sure door then moves with temp change

Freezer cold fridge warm


sounds like the evaporator in the freezer section is iced up and you need to see if the defrost section is working correctly,then as for the warm refrige side,it sound as if the vent damper door is frozen shut or the cold control in the refrige isn't opening it to let cold air into the refrige from the freezer,if its frozen take a hand held hair dryer and remove the vent grille over it and defrost it and then check to make sure the control opens and closes it as you adjust its control in the refrige

Hopoint fridge freezer model ff78p - fridge is not cooling


check the damper door vent between the freezer/refrigerator compartments and make sure this door is opening and closing as you adjust the cold control in the refrige section,it may have a diverter cover on it but you should feel cold air flow in this area even if its only open part way,then remove this cover and check that its not iced up if so use a hair dryer carefully and deice it,then try the control and see if it opens and closes as you adjust the cold control in the refrige

Older model fridge freezes on the refrig. side


check the damper door and see if its iced up this is between the refrige and freezer compartments and lets cold into refrige from freezer,if it ices up in the open condition the refrige control cant change the temp,defrost the door and then see if the control moves the door,if so also check the door seals to make sure they are sealing good so as not to let warm air in that can condense and freeze things like the damper door

My GE Adora side by side refrig. has stopped making ice and I am having a hard time regulating the settings on it. The freezer is too cold and the refrig. section isn't cold enough. I also have noticed...


Defroster circuit/timer has failed.

The water line to the icemaker has probably frozen,so no ice. The cooling coils are in the freezer, and the cold air moves to the fridge via vents and circulation fan.

When it all ices up, no air gets to fridge, fridge gets warm.

Many models have a mechanical defroster timer located under the lower front kick panel. Manually rotate the timer until you hear the compressor stop.

Defroster heater then should come on and you hear scorch/hiss/gurgle of defrost sounds. If the timer is working, the fridge should come back on after about a half hour or so.

Sometimes timer fails, sometimes heater element fails. There is also a defrost thermostat that's part of the heater assembly.

New whirlpool refrig. freezer ok at 0 but refrig


The freezer get the first crack at cooling and combination units have a fan and adjustable vents to steal some of the cooling capacity for the refrigerator. The vent are normally located in the back of the refrigerator compartment and with these, you can balance the cooling capacity between freezer and fridge. I recommend you swap your thermometer back and forth until you get the balance you want; typically the freezer should be at 5 degrees F or below and the fridge at 35-40 degrees F. Adjusting the control for temperature and having the vents set to supply the cold air you want in each compartment should give you the range you want in each.

Ice maker stopped working, plus fridge not cold, but freezer o.k.


I would check that fan motor in the freezer section is running. it distributes cold air from freezer into refrig section also if this motor is running the top portion of freezer will not get cold enough to allow ice production. the motor is easy to repl and is mod# specific you should be able to buy one online.

Kenmore refrig not making ice and top shelf area in refrig not cold


if you are having tempurature issues make sure the fan in the freezer is operating. it should be on when the compresor is running. this may explain both warm fridge and no ice.
