SOURCE: Fridge wasn't cooling but freezer was working, now both aren't

Hi,Your husband did good job, after cleaning and vacuuming, did freezer (bottom) have excessive ice?, if there's excessive ice in bottom, after cleaning, you have a defrost problem, but if there're no ice in freezer after cleaning, you got freon (gas leak) , there's a condensate loop, that passes through ref. body, from compressor that naturally develop, freon leak after few years, by rusting, normally it can be by- pass. vacuum and refill with freon, if there's no freezing, but compressor running, you'll need a mechanic, you got a freon leak. good luck.

Modle # TSF-495D will not defrost


If there is no cooling at all on the fridge section but the freezer works then it is confirmed that the compressor and gas pressure is OK. Now shut off the fridge and leave it powered off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if ice forms in the freezer then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked. Frost formation without defrosting could block the air flow and so shut the air passage to the fridge. Also the blower fan must work and if this is not working then the fan can be faulty. Also a fault on the control unit is a suspect to non functioning of any one of these components.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test using a multi-meter on the defrost timer and the thermostat and make your observations so that we come to the solution.

My refrigerator doesn't cool


Hello,
The answer to these questions lies in the way the freezer/fridge combo works. The freezer is where the cooling coils are located. Then air is moved over the coils and circulated through the fridge side by a small blower or fan. The problem arises when the air is not circulated for some reason.

The reasons the air is not moving is usually two reasons
The fan or blower has failed.
The coil is covered over with ice and blocks the air flow.

The first reason is pretty simple to fix, you simply replace the air circulator and things are good again.
The second reason can be more difficult.
1. The timing device that runs the defrost cycle of the refrigerator is defective.
2. The heater coil that melts the water is shorted or not working

Usually the first thing to check is the heater coil. If there is resistance through the coil then most likely it is still good.
The timing device can be an advanced defrost control board or a mechanical timing device.
If the heater coil checks out to be good then the problem should be the timer.

For most situations, unplugging the refrigerator and allowing it to defrost on it's own will get you going temporarily, till parts can be shipped to you. That will melt the ice and give you a few days or a couple of weeks till it ices up to the point where it will not work again.

So you can see here, the problem can usually be traced to one of three things.
The fan or blower
The timer device
The electric heater coil
By methodically checking these parts you can isolate your problem and fix it.


Hoping that this will solve the problem of the refrigerator....

Frig stopped working but freezer is good? Help... I am handy.


When the freezer section gets cold and reaches its required cooling temperature, after that the frost on freezer section starts defrosting and the cooling fan in the freezer section blows this cool air from freezer to fridge. But if the defrost cycle does not start then over ice will get collected on freezer ventilations and that will block the air passing section from freezer to fridge, so the freezer gets cool but fridge section does not cool.

Its defrost problem. Try manual defrost by unplugging the refrigerator from main power outlet for 24 hours then reconnect it and check, if the same problem is noticed again,. If yes then its defrost board problem. The defrost board located in the back of fridge section. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com or from online sears part site. ------------- Thank you.

My frost free fridge freezer has stopped working(beko) the fan inside the freezer is consyantly on the food in the freezer has defrosted and the element at the back is usually hot and now its cold


Please checck to see if your thermostat lines are in order or if some of the connecting wires are damaged bby frost. First of all switch off the fridge and allow all frost to clear. then check for the fan circuit, the auto defrost timer circuit. Now after few hours switch on the fridge. Check to see if the compressor is running the back side is getting warm and the freezer is cooling. If not check if the compressor is pumping well or being short of gas-- get help -. If not the timer could be the culprit as after the cooling takes place the fridge does not defrost. Check this out and the fault is confirmed if your fridge works fine now. Hope you try. Good day

Icing up, not defrosting corretly in freezer. Frig not staying cold enough.


Your refrigerator problem is directly related to your icing up - excess frost / icing up, defrosting problems causes cooling problems.
To rule out other problems shut down your unit and MANUALLy defrost it using a blowdryer, get all that ice buildup melted as well as the evap coils in your freezer - once it is fully defrosted put back the panel and turn on - give it a couple of hours to cool - if it cools properly, it is a defrost problem. Hopefully too, this resets your controlboard.

If problem returns eventually, you have a defrost timer problem and will need to get it checked - it can be any of the defrost components, controlboard, defrost thermostat, etc.

The freezer is not cold enough - ice-cream is soggy! despite putting it on coldest; and the red warning light is permanently on. And I can't find the booklet. Help!


If the coils are frozen up already,putting the setting to coldest is the worst thing to do.Even though inconvenient,try unplugging for substantial amount of time (3 or 4 hours) to allow the coils to defrost.Be prepared for water leakage during this time.If this seems to work , chances are the defrost timer or defrost heating element are bad and the problem will recur after a week or two.
