Check the backside if it's hot or warm.it's ok.if not, the tubes are clog.you will need a ref tech for that.
try this to make sure.defrost first, then turn it on.if the fan works ,then the fan is frozen or stuck up.if not then it's time to look for a ref tech.

I have a stainless steel top freezer ice make. the freezer seems t somewhat works but my refrigerator stopped getting cold. what should i do?


Check the fan in the refrigerator section, see if it's blowing air.
Next is the thermostat which you've probably already tried changing. Either one of these could have ice buildup making them not work correctly, so take everything out of the unit and use a house fan blowing into the refrigerator section to melt things out for a couple days. A hair dryer used on the areas will speed things up, but there's a risk of shock. Also the fan or thermostat may need to be replaced. (put your food items in another freezer/refrigerator as they will thaw and warm up within the time it will take for you to try to melt the ice out.)
The fact that the freezer is still working means that your compressor is working and the system isn't out of Freon.

The freezer is cold but why is the refrigerator warm?


Likely, either your circulation fan has stopped working due to icing, or you have ice buildup in the cold air duct between the freezer and refrigerator. Try unplugging your refrigerator overnight with the doors open, mop up any melt water with towels, then plug the refrigerator back in next day. Listen for the circulation fan in the freezer and, if it is not working or not moving air, replace the circulation fan.

Freezer side not cold enough, similar temperature as Refrigerator side


It could be many things. My first guess would be the defrost. The coil that gets cold in your freezer builds ice on it and the only way to get the ice off is to run a heater near the coil long enough for the ice to melt. All freezers have something built in to defrost and domestic are typically just an electric heater on a timer. When your freezer stops working again, you may want to pull open the panel of your freezer and see if your coil (a heat exchanger that probably looks a lot like your car radiator) is covered in ice. If it is, it could be the timer or the actual heater that is bad.

Evap fan stops running/low cooling, Unplug Frig Evap fan runs


Is there anything obstructing the fan area, ice build up ? It is normal for your freezer to get warm if evap fan is not working, it is essential for it to work :) A defrost cycle should kick on a timer or as needed (adaptive) and there should not be excessive frost buildup that it blocks your evap fan. I would have suggested you unplug your refrigerator for about 10 minutes and see if that resets your control board - if not, then you will need service - either replacing motor assembly or a faulty control board.

My bottom refrigerator is not cold. The freezer is okay.


Check to make sure the fan in the freezer compartment is working and not blocked. This delivers the cold air to the refrigerator. The fan should run every time the freezer calls for cold.

Plz help refrigerator not working properly after transporting it


time to get a new defrost timer or heater element the ice is causing most of the issues. if the freezer is staying cold then there is a fan that blows the cold air into the fridge side that could be out.

Fridge and freezer not getting cold



  • You have 2 fans Make sure your top fan is working ,its located inside the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked.With out a fan you have no circulation .Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.

Freezer cold but not fridge


too much ice bulid up will stop enough cold air being blown into the fridge.Try turning it off letting all ice melt then turn it back on again and set thermostat at a lower temp.There may be ice you can't see.
