    No, I have not ruled out a bad thermostat. What are the chances of two unrelated parts failing at the same time. I told my wife it has to be the thermostat but did not test for it. Hopfully that is the solution,

    One failure would have caused the other. If it's a bad thermostat making the pump run non-stop, that could cause things to break. That said, unless your refrigerated compartment is always freezing things, you may be low on coolant. You could also have a bad compressor.

    You may want to call the maytag man to get your unit serviced. If it's older, it may be most cost-effective in the long run to just replace the unit.

    Have you verified that the external radiator is clean? Does it have enough "breathing room"?

Samsung rs2630Ww. internal refrig fan blower not working and water dispenser not working.

This problem could be caused by the motherboard having defective relays, bad fan motor=> DA31-00103A Fan Motor Sounds like someone will need to examine the fan motor and test the voltage to the fans inside and outside the refrigerator. You will need to have this done to eliminate what the cause is. Both condensor and evaporator fan motors are the same part=> DA31-00103A Fan Motor Let me know and I will explain how to remove, test or replace the freezer/evaporator fan motor, wiring or motherboart. Thanks Sea Breeze

Hi we have a GBS22HCPABB fridge and the motor runs, frezzer works but fridge will not get cold just stopped

you have a few possibilities 1. a defrost problem restricting air flow from freezer to ref. 2. a bad freezer fan motor 3. a damper issue not opening to allow air to flow from freezer to frig. most all refrigerators generate the cooling from the freezer to the frig via the freezer fan motor

Fan underneath frig is running but no cold air is coming into the frig or freezer

The fan that is under the frig is the condensor fan(the fan the cools the condenser coils and the compressor. It does not have a direct effect on the chilled air circulation inside of the frig. The evaporator fan is the unit that circulates the chilled air thru your freezer and frig. I am not sure what make model unit you have, but I have found that this fan motor is 90% of the circulation problems i have seen.

Fridge is warm

Hi!!! you have 2 problems that are causing your frig not to cool.First one is a seal seal problem,make sure that the compressor is running and the inside fan motor and the condensor fan motor locaated behind the frig..if the are then you have a seal system problem ,most likely a freon like or restriction..Second you could have a defrost problem open the freezer door and look bank on the wall of the evaporator if you see frost or ice then you have a defrost problem..Just replace the defrost timer and you should be fine..remember to defrost frig when installing defrost timer.Good luck.

you might have a few problems,, make sure to check the condensor is clean, also make sure the condensor fan motor is going... you might have a bad Condensor fan motor, and Ref Control or a Freon Leak @ the Evaporator... I would call a tech to check it out...
