Seems like you left the door open or you have a bad door seal. If it has a lot of frost against the back wall, you may have a defrost issue.

Is your fan blowing in the freezer? Frost on the back wall of the freezer usually indicates a defrost problem... defrost themostate, heaters, take back panel off and check evap for frost build up and if your fan in working.

SOURCE: freezer no frost

This is probably due to the failure of defrost timer or the heating coil..Try this
1)The defrost timer is sometimes found behind the front grill of the refrigerator. It may also be found behind a cover plate inside the refrigerator or freezer, in the temperature control console, or behind the refrigerator near the compressor.

The timer is usually held in place with one or more screws. Remove the screws and gently pull the timer out far enough to disconnect the wiring connector.

Locate the timer switch and turn it clockwise until you hear it click. One click and the refrigerator shuts off = defrost mode, second click the compressor and fans come back on = run/cooling mode.
2)If this doesnt work then Test the heating element for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading somewhere between zero and infinity. Because of the number of different elements we cannot tell what your reading should be, but we can be certain of what it shouldn't be. If the reading is zero or infinity the heating element is definitely bad and should be replaced. Proper power ( careful!! ) to the heating element ( 110-120 volts AC ) and the defrost heater does not come on = bad defrost heater.

SOURCE: Fridge not getting any air, freezer is working

I have a Kenmore w/ freezer on bottom. The top vent in the fridge is ducted to the freezer and is supposed to blow air. Mine was not.

I removed all the frozen goods and took off the back panel (inside to unit) which had a little ice on it. Underneath the panel was a solid wall of ice......including the motor which is supposed to blow air up to the 'fridge. I'd bet a beer that is your problem as well.

The ice seized motor will not be harmed because it is resistance loaded.

The best part is with a blow dryer and some elbow grease...the fix is free! I hope it helps.

How do you make a freezer frost free?


Frost free means that the evaporator coil will not accumulate a thick layer of frost. It will not prevent frost from accumulating on the walls of the freezer. To slow down the amount of frost build up inside the freezer, do not keep the freezer door open for any longer than necessary. The freezer door seal may be defective. This would allow moisture in that would freeze on the inside walls. A heater with timed intervals to come on is one way for a frost free feature. But this will not work for frost build up on the inside walls of the freezer. It would only melt the frost and then it would refreeze again.

Top freezer works but bottom refrigerator warm


Good Morning friend, thanks for your inquiry!
From the information you have provided the freezer on your Frigidaire refrigerator is working and the bottom portion is not. This sounds like a potential issue with your damper or defrost timer. You should check the damper and that is located on the rear upper wall. If the damper is not working properly it could be due to frost build-up or food blockage. I would recommend checking the freezer to make sure there is no frost build-up or food blocking the damper on the rear wall. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

Refrigerator is only going down to 50.2 degrees and there is frost on back wall of freezer.


the frost on the back wall of the freezer is a usuall indication that there is a problem with the defrost circuit,defrost heater,thermastat, or the defrost timer.you can use a blow dryer and defrost the evaporator coil.remove the rear panel in the freezer to gain access to the evaporator coil.you also need to make sure that the evaprorator fan is functioning properly.

We have Kenmore side-by-side door refigerator, recently we found a problem with freezer, all the items any type of containers are getting iced in the form of a thin layer.even the sheves and most of the...


1)The door gasket on the freezer door helps keep the cold air in and the warm air out. If the gasket is dirty or damaged, it may prevent the door from closing properly, which can lead to frost buildup on your freezer walls. To make sure the door is sealing, slip a dollar bill or a sheet of paper between the gasket and the freezer and then close the door. If the bill or paper pulls free with little or no resistance, the gasket isn't sealing properly. Wipe the gasket with a damp cloth to remove dirt, grease and other residue. If the gasket is damaged, replace it with a new one. Sometimes frost can accumulate on the back panel of your freezer if the door is open too long or too often. When you open the door, you let warm, humid air inside, and this condenses and freezes. Make sure there are no packages preventing the door from fully closing, and limit how often you open the door by removing what you need all at once.
2)Ventilation is important because it ensures your freezer stays cold. If something inside the freezer blocks the internal vents, the freezer may become warm, causing condensation to form on the walls, and eventually leading to frost buildup. When loading your freezer, make sure there are no items resting against the rear wall of the freezer and space the contents out as much as possible to improve ventilation.
3)Side-by-side refrigerators with a built-in ice maker may accumulate frost if the flap on the ice dispenser doesn't close properly. This allows warm air to enter the freezer side, condense and freeze, causing frost buildup over time. Open the freezer door and examine the flap inside the ice chute. It should be flush against the housing. If it is not, empty the ice bin and make sure there is no ice or debris preventing the flap from closing.
4)If your freezer door closes properly and nothing is keeping it open, frost buildup on the back panel may indicate a problem with the freezer's self-defrost system. The self-defrost system turns off the compressor for a short time every six to 12 hours so it can turn on the defrost heater. This melts any frost buildup on the freezer coils, and the water drains to the pan beneath the freezer. If this component fails, frost continues to build. Move the contents to another freezer and turn your freezer off for 24 to 48 hours to manually defrost the interior. If frost builds up again, contact a qualified appliance repair technician to inspect the defrost timer and repair the problem.

KitchenAid Refridgerator won't get cool - freezer works great - Ice maker won't run either. What's up? Also, the model wasn't listed below - it is a KitchenAid with Freezer on top/ fridge below.


when this happens in a side by side, the first thing i look for is frost on the back wall op fht e freezer, if its there, your not geting proper air circulation
unplug the machine for 24 hours this will clear the ice
\check your freezer fan for proper ops, if its working you may need service to determine whats wrong with your defrost

Westinghouse aurora frost free freezer.the freezer fan seems to be running all the time and should the compresor turn off occassionaly what should i be looking for,would it be the thermostat. thanks mark


It could be the thermostat. Before getting into that you should check a few other things. Check and make sure the condenser on the unit is clean and has free air around it. On some models the outer skin of the refrigerator or freezer acts as the surface for transferring the heat from inside to the outside air. These should be kept free of those stick um objects and the top is no storage area. On a frost free unit make sure it is frost free. Check the back wall for frost . If there is frost on the back wall the defrost system is not functioning properly. Check the temperature. Depending on what you are storing determines what temperature is necessary.
