SOURCE: fan runs freezer and fridge don't cool

Please check the model number again, I can't locate that number. The number should be like for example 194.258978 Look at following areas for the model number

  • Beneath Or Inside Food Compartment On Cabinet Frame
  • On Plate Lower Front Or Rear Of Cabinet
  • Beside Compressor Door On Right End
  • Near Rear Of Cabinet
  • Inside Liner At Top
  • I think your refrigerator has a defrost timer and this may be the problem, Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: ge freezer works fine but the fridge wont

How to check everything

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

SOURCE: I have Beko frige freezer,

Hey Guys, I have a Maytag Bottom Freezer / Refrigerator Model #MBB2256GEQ Serial #10155937AL That runs constantly I cleaned the coils then I turned the defrost timer clockwise until the refrigerator and freezer shut down, it was supposed to go into defrost mode I'm not sure if that happened after approximately 20 min, the refrigerator started up again however it does not keep things cold and is not keeping the food in the freezer frozen it's keeping it semi-frozen. I am not sure if it's the thermostat or the defrost timer. I believe I found where the thermostat is but if anyone can tell me where the thermostat is located on this unit. I would greatly appreciate it and if they can tell me where the defrost timer is located I would greatly appreciate that too and how I can change that out I would greatly appreciate that or whatever suggestions they may have that would solve the problem thank you

SOURCE: Model ZHSC02PP-- Mini fridge no longer cooling (18-24 months old)

not much to do, if you've turned it up and it don't help out any, check it on the evap core (big tank in back hole) if any lines are frozen, its low in freon, if not and its not even getting above room temperature then it could either be the switch relay or could be completely out of freon and its not worth fixing, cost more than getting a new one. I found a GE at big lots for under 100 and it has a seperate freezer from the fridge (like a full size shrunk) that works nicely and i've had it for quite some time. Around 3 years i guess.

My beverage cooler MCBC58DST wont stay cool after it reaches target temp.

Throw it out and get another model from another company. Their units are junk!
They last a year, at best. Them and Magic Chef are one and the you may have to bite the bullet and get a real unit.

Good luck. I speak from experience...I've had four now. Complete junk!!

Beverage air won't keep cooling

Hi David, sorry about that, I just found your model number. I want to help you but I need a few things first. First when is is plugged in and on can you tell me if the compressor is running? You can find it near the coils in the back, you can touch it and it wont shock you but it could be very hot so be careful. If it is running can you see if the fan in the back beside it is running?

Can i freeze food in a matsui mini fridge freezer with ice compartment?

You can do so but the freezing temperature may not be as good on a standard fridge specially for frozen foods as the mini is mainly meant for emergency foods and beverages.

Hi Myke365,
In all cases the refrigerator never just needs a charge. If you freon has leaked out then you have a leak and would have to repair the leek and then refill the freon. Since this is very rarley the case lets look for something else. Your fridge should have a thermostat that tells the compressor when to run and when to stop. If you set the temp control to a lower setting and it still does not get cold enough you may have one of the following 3 things.
1. You condenser fan motor has stopped running. This is the fan that would pull air across the compressor and coils near the compressor.
2. Your coils were dirty,
3. and most likely since you say the others were fine. Your temperature control thermostat is bad. Most new beverage dispencers have a control board with a temperature sensor that plugs into it. Send me your model number and I will look and see which one yours takes. You may just need the sensor, or you may need the control board also.
One more thing, the tech should have given you an explanation of the problem. Or he should have not charged you anything. If you still have the problem call the tech back out. If he is not able to do the job find a professional who will be able to solve your problem. It is sometimes a good idea to call the manufacturer and ask them who is the best in your area to complete the repairs correctly. If you just want to buy the sensor and/or the control please let me know and I will be happy to give you prices and availability. I do have almost every part known to mankind in stock and ready to ship if needed.
I hope this will FixYa.

Fan in cooling compartment

The fan inside the unit should run all the time, this insures a more constant temp throughout the compartment by keeping the air moving.
