1Plugged coils (lint and dirt) cutting off air flow will cause the problem you describe; Also
2 Fan that will not run underneath the box
3 Defective compressor
4 Compressor starting components, are the 1st items that come to mind with a description like yours.

But first check your controls inside and make sure they are set to mid range.
2 types of controls in refrigerators 1 for on off and 1 for air flow. If this control you mentioned has "off" on it this is the thermostat. Look for the other one and set it to mid range

If this has helped you please rate me as high as you can and thank you for using fixya..

My GE Refrigerator doesn't work properly.


The two main causes for your problem is the control set wrong and the second one isthe defrost element has burned out... Sometime the defrost clock will go out as well.... always try to set your controls to midrange and if the bottom of the freezer compartment is cold and frosty but the refrigerator is cold ... Remove all the food and store in a backup refrigerator you can rent from an appliance rental center... Unplug your refrigerator and let it defrost for 48 hours.... In the mean time open up the doors and clean it from top to bottom. place a fresh opened box of arm and hammer baking soda in the frige side and one in the freezer side. Plug back in after completely deftosted and place a small plastic cup half filled with water on each shelf of the freezer. Close the doors and wait 8 hours... Open the freezer and check the plastic cups.... if they are all frozen great..now wait for 3 days do the test again if the bottom cup is frozen and the top shelf is not ... its time for a new defrost element or a defrost timer.

The bottom part of the refrigerator is not cooling, freezer is ok


Are you sure about the model number being MTF2153GES? Usally when the fresh food section warms up it is an indication that there is a problem with the defrost system. If your model number is correct MTF2153GES then the refrigerator has a defrost timer behind the controls inside the fresh food section. I need to see if the defrost timer is stuck and causing the refrigerator to miss defrost. The defrost timer is=> 68233-3 Defrost Timer Let me know about the model number so I can continue to help solve this problem. . I am here should you need me, Thanks John Tripp Appliance 911

Refrigerator is to warm,freezer to cold model is ed5ghexnloosso649995


In most cases something has blocked the vent from the freezer. Sometimes you catch this at a point that the freezer seems too cold but just what may be happening is the ADC control has failed causing the evaporator to freeze over with frost blocking air flow to the fresh food section. The ADC is Adaptive Defrost Control and can be forund here=> ED5GHEXNL00 Fresh Food Section Controls in that photo location 6 is the ADC or defrost control board=> W10353224 Defrost Control Board If you disconnect refrigerator from power source and lower control panel you can look this board over on both sides. Sometimes you will see burn marks or signs of heat damage, not always.

Second most Likely is the defrost heater behind the rear wall of your freezer=> ED5GHEXNL00 Unit Parts and in that photo part location 33 is the=> 2188175 Defrost Heater Assembly

sea_breeze_244.jpg
Ways to test this heater are on same page. Then we always need to consider the defrost thermostat found here=> ED5GHEXNL00 Air Flow Parts item 6 in that photo. At -5 to +5 degrees the contacts inside should be closed and once the freezer goes into defrost the defrost thermostat opens its contacts at 50 degrees to prevent extended defrost. Part Number=> 2321799 Look inside rear of the freezer and if a layer of frost is building on rear wall then you most likely have a defrost problem causing the freezer to be colder. If fan in freezer is working properly then you should have a steady stream of cold air flowing to the fresh food compartment. Let me know just what you find so I may assist you in the repair, Thanks, Sea Breeze

WHY DO I HAVE TO DEFROST MY SELFDEFROST REFRIGERATOR EVERY 30DAYS? AND MY FOOD ON THE BOTTOM WILL NOT STAY COLD UNTILL I DEFROST THE TOP.


hi my name is Sean, this more than likely has a bad defrost timer, and/or defrost thermostat. Timer is located in the control panel in the refrigerator, the thermostat is located in the evaporator compartment in the freezer, Let me know if you need more assistance.

Thanks

My sub zero refridgerator (freezer on bottom fridge on top) is cold on the bottom of fridge and warm on the top of the fridge. Any idea what is causing this. Items are also damp in fridge. We just vacumed...


the evaporator coil inside the freezer compartment is iced over and can't transfer cold air in thes condition,remove panel inside freezer on back side of freezer compartment and thaw it out with a hair dryer,then check the defrost heating element for continuity,if its open replace it,if its good, ,check the defrost control that powers the defrost heater

Uncertain as to whether this is a "freezer at top or bottom" model? Make certain that temperature control settings are approximately at the one-half way for both the freezer and fresh food compartments. If freezer at bottom, you may have a defrost component issue (defrost thermostat or heater). If so, contact an appliance service company.

Freezer works but refridgerator does not . light works and coil fan woks


Since you did not mention the manufacturer breand, or if it is a top freezer/ bottom food section, or if it's a sxs- I can only give you some general diagnosis:

Top freezer model and sxs
1. Are your controls in the proper setting?
1. Check to see if there is any "snow formation" on the evaporator cover. If yes, then you most likely have a defrost issue

2. Is defrost drain clogged ( top freezer model). If defrost drain is clogged then water can "spew" over into air diffuser and cause an airflow issue

3. Make surer you are getting air flow into the food section i.e. the fan in the freezer blows the freezer air into the food section. You might havve an air difuuser that is not opening

REFRIGERATOR BOTTOM IS NOT COLD.


OK that number is good, Frigidaire model GLRT13TEB3 Sometimes the freezer section appears to be cold enough but you may need to check it if we don't find the problem soon. If your freezer is not defrosting properly it will restrict air flow to the fresh food section and that make us think that's the only problem. Your refrigerator has a defrost timer located inside the fresh food section behind the thermostat control cover. Unplug the refrigerator and open back of the freezer compartment to expose the evaporator coil. If covered with ice or frost this will be considered to be something wrong with defrost circuit. First we check timer, then element and then the defrost thermistat. Let me know what you find after you expose the evaoprator. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Kenmore elite 596 73503201 no cooling in top compartment


if the freezer is getting cold the problem is due to the cold air from the freezer not getting into the refrigerator. There are several things that can cause this problem. The coils in the freezer icing up and not defrosting properly is one of the things that can cause the refrigerator not to get cold enough. Another problem is the fan that blows the cold air from the freezer compartment into the refrigerator, not working. When the compressor is running open the refrigerator's door and push the switch that makes the light go out. You should hear the fan blowing the cold air from the freezer into the refrigerator, when this switch is pushed in. If the fan is working then you will need to find what is blocking the air flow. Iced up coils are a common problem. The icing problem can be due to a defective defrost timer or something defective in the defrost circuit. Click here for more information. Check for these problems and let me know what you have found.
