    Not a problem anymore. It just needed to sit longer unplugged.

Side by side refrigerator model MCD2257HES, has stopped working. The fan isn't running, nothing is cooling. I unplugged overnight, plugged in this morning.


Is the defrost timer out of sync? Usually it defrosts early in the AM. If you unplugged it for a long time you will have to set the time on the defrost timer.

A COUPLE THINGS U SAY FREEZER IS FINE FRIDGE IS NOT? THE FAN NOISE MAY BE DUE TO ICE BUILD UP DUE TO A DEFECTIVE BAD DEFROST TERMINATOR. WHICH EVENTUALLY WILL BUILD ICE UP IN FREEZER AND FRIDGE? HINDER COLD AIR CIRCULATION. ANOTHER THING TO LOOK AT IS UR FREEZER AND FRIDGE THERMISTORS AND UR COLD CONTROL THERMOSTAT. EVEN UR AIR FLOW DAMPER CONTROL VENT AND KNOB SETTINGS? ARE THEY TO FAR OPEN OR CLOSED? ARE U ABLE TO HEAR THE FAN AND COMPRESSOR RUNNING? ANY CLICKING SOUNDS?

That is most likely the problem. It may be due to a failure of the fan itself, the thermostat or damaged wiring in transit.

Once you get the fan operating again, it should cool again.

Used Kenmore freezer won't get cold enough


If it is running but not cooling enough the problem is in the sealed system.

If you started it up just after hauling it home it may have be moved around enough to get oil in the systems smaller tubing causing problems. Unplug the unit for 24 hours and let it sit. Try it again for 24 hours and see if it cools.

If not this means either there is a refrigerant (freon) leak in the system or a restriction causing the refrigerant to not flow properly.

Either one are an expensive repair. and will require a professional to look at.

Fridge not working freezer works what should i do


see if you can hear the evaporator fan running in the freezer. if you can't you will need to replace it as this fan pushes the cold air from the freezer into the fridge to keep it cold.

Fridge or freezer are not cold


I had similar problem: condenser fan was running, but compressor was not. After I unplugged refrigerator for a while and plugged back on, the compressor ran for a few seconds. Compressor testing indicated it was OK, I suspected that it was either overload/relay or run capacitor. My limited testing equipment could not tell me which one was bad. I took out the run capacitor out of system by unplugging the 2 wires and the refrigerator ran fine. After Replacing the run capacitor with a new one bought from partselect.com, it ran fine so far.

Freezer and refrigerator run but is not cold


Remove the back panel at the bottom. The refrigeration system is a sealed system and the smell would not come from it internally. Check and make sure the fan motor is running. If the fan motor (was) shorted out it would account for the reseting of the breaker. After resetting the breaker a number of times would cause the circuit in the fan motor to open allowing the compressor to run. Is the small line coming out of the compressor hot? If so replacing the defective fan motor may correct your problem.
