    Hi, fan motor is running, no frost build up.... Frig on top stopped working after door was ajar but the freezer is ok. We have it unplugged to see if that will help. Any other ideas? Thank you!

Hi, No reset button. Check and make sure the evaporator fan motor inside the freezer is running. While checking that, look and see if there is any frost build up on the rear panelin the freezer. Please let me know if any of these are the case so I can asist you further.
Thanks
Vic

    The vents to the fresh food section might have plugged due to the heat entering for that length of time. Does the compressor run?

Upright freezer door was left ajar. The alarm keeps sounding, can you tell me where the reset button is located.


Hello Deena;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

There is no reset for the alarm. The alarm goes off when you are not maintaining temperature.

During the time the door was ajar, warm air got into the freezer either icing up and locking the cooling fan or forming a block of ice on the cooling coils (Restricting cooling air flow.)

The best thing you can do, unless you want a $300.00 plus service call to defrost everything, is to turn power off to the freezer. Open the freezer door. Have plenty of old towels to soak up the water in the bottom of the freezer as it defrost.

You did not provide a model number which is located on the inside wall of the freezer. Every 8-10 hours your freezer will completely shout down for 20-30 minutes where only the light works and the defrost heater turns on. The ice build up is too much for the defrost heater to handle.

In some freezers the defrost mode is in the control board, in others it is a separate component that you can repeat trip using a flat head screw drive.

Is there a reset button somewhere on my frig? My children left the freezer door open and now my frig isn't working.


Unplug for about 5 minutes and then replug power. This in most case's will reset the motherboards memory. After this possible solution I will not be allowed to send a clickable link to a Service Manual to assist you but I can send you a link to your models exact model providing your model was made for the America's LG, Whirlpool, GE, Etc: and most Refrigerators design's and that you are able to locate you model number.

Freezer only getting 48' and frig side is only at 49 degrees


take the back panel off and see if the fan is running and if not see if it has power to it if it does replace the fan and see if ur problem is solved the coil underneath the fan should not be frozen even if the fan is gone out this could be a sign that the lil black element that runs through the coil is gone out now if all this is good and still same problem ur probably gonna have a freon issue and unless u know how to charge one i advise u call a tech and if its only 6 years old yes it worth trying to fix

Temperature in refrigerator is now at 60 degrees even with the dial at setting of 9 other side freezer is fine


sounds like the defrost system is cutting up, it melts the ice in the freezer compartment to allow cold air from freezer to travel to fresh food side and back again, could be a damper control but very rare event.we use to have to melt ice manually in freezers now we have automatic defrosters do it for us. this is not the easiest repair but the defrost sysem is replacable and not the end of your frig.u can empty frig and turn it off for 24 hrs with doors open and let it defrost naturally,so as to make sure that it is a defrostsystem, after 24 hrs turn back on and see if it works correctly after 6 or 8 hrs, if so definite defrost problem.
