On front of refrigerator and near floor remove kick plate and look for a small box with a hole in center. If you find the part I want you to turn the center clockwise slowly until the refrigerator stops or starts. I may be stuck in the defrost position. If it begins to work we need to replace the timer. Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

The fridge is not working.the freezer is the freezer the cold air is not coming in the fridge.

fridge basics

the fridge and freezer are seperate compartments they dont share air there is a chemical filled filiment on your fridge u can see it at the back looks like a big grill that chemical is pumped around both fridge and frezer that chemical carrys heat energy it removes the heat from the fridge and frezer to the radiator at the back this radiator gets verry hot whyle your fridge / frezer becomes cold it shuld be 1 compleate system with better fluid flow in the frezer to make it cool faster

ok so the frezer is working but fridge is not it could be a few things 1 fluid not geting round the fridge lack of fluid or 2 a blockage

im no expert but knowing the basic science of fridges is a help i hope this has helped but like i say im not farmiliar with any fridge and models deviate but the science stays the same hopefully this steers u in the right direction

Yes , should still work as long as you didnt hole the coolant pipes. Use some putty or similar to block the hole.

Icemaker is not making ice

is there water in your icemaker.if so then its up to icemaker to do its part.frezer temps must be near 0 degrees.if no water in icemaker is the line in the back of the frezer frozen [top back where water passes thru frezer wall into frezer section.if its not frozen,am i then getting voltage to the water valve when the ice maker cycles.if not then icemaker is bad.if your ice bucket is on the door[whirlpool,kenmore]there are boards in the frezer section that can fail.i know that dosen't tell you what the problem is .but it does give you somthing to go on with.God bless ,tom
