GE bottom freezer stopped cooling


The unit needs two fans running and good airflow, one fan outside cools the condensor coil and the other inside the unit blowing across the evaporator. The compressor must start up. The defrost timer stops everything and switches on a heating element to defrost the evaporator for several minutes. Please verify these conditions.

Stopped cooling and freezing and red blinking lite in the freezer. we have electricity and it sounds as if the motor is running or the fan maybe.


Not sure how old the unit is but you may want to disconnect from power source for 20 or 30 minutes and allow to cool down to run temp.

Remove the bottom panel and look to see if the condenser fan on bottom is turning freely.

If area is full of dust, clean or blow out area

Reconnect power and check for cooling

Neff fridge/freezer has stopped cooling


pull the unit from the wall, remove the bottom back panel , see if the small fan is working ,if the fan is , there's probally alot of dust back there,unplug the fridg. and vacuum the area real good,use a flash light to make sure you get it all, if the fan is not working and the compressor is running the fan is the problem ,the fan keeps the compressor and coils cool so the freon can cool down so the unit works like it should,if the freon is hot ,the air the fridg.will be blowing will be hot. this should fix your problem, and YES its worth fixing.alittle p.m.saves alot of $$$$$$$$$

Freezer not freezing


Hi Kenneth, I am happy to assist you!

If your freezer is not cooling, it could have a floating restriction in the lines or something more complicated like an issue with the sealed system that only a professional can repair. This can include the compressor not working correcting, the evaporator fan not turning, or even coolant in the lines with incorrect levels to properly cool. Do you hear the compressor running? If the compressor is running, humming or even a little warm then that is typically normal. I suggest cleaning the unit out including the coils you can reach (typically located underneath or behind the unit). Also try checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and the door. Now close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bills falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing. If any of these suggestions prove to be ineffective, connect with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues.

Best of luck!

Daewoo FRN-U20IA top of freezer compartment won't freeze


It was the fan at the top of the freezer that had stopped working after 3 years, therefore the freezing air wasn't getting to the top of the freezer. From the inside, unscrew light unit and unclip, pop out two circular discs at top and unscrew one screw. Unscrew 2 more screws and prise the back panel off. (Arrows mark the clips). Pull off fan, take out motor, replace (keeping rubber bits) and push back fan with a bit of nail varnish on spindle. Put everything back together. Turn on, depress door light switch and after 30 seconds fan should rotate. You can buy a fan on eBay or from www.4daewoo.co.uk for about 40 pounds.

Samsung model rs263tdpn fresh food stops cooling.


Air channels freezing? they might be blocked with foreign matter, clean them out. This might also be as simple as turning down the dial for how much you wish to cool the unit. Running it constantly at full blast is not a good idea.

I have a Subzero 501F that stopped freezing. The compressor is running(replaced about 2 years ago.) and all of the fans are working. Any ideas?


Either the unit is low or out of freon or the fan that cools the condenser has stopped working. If you can improvise a fan to blow on the condenser, yould should be able to tell if that is the problem within a few hours. If you can locate the fan and it is not working then you have found the problem.
