Low on freon/refrigerant maybe.

SOURCE: Freezer and Fridge side not cooling

Sounds like your Defrost heater is burned up. It is located in the back of the freezer compartment behind the lower cover. Look at the base of the condensor. Two screws hold the heater and two wire connectors. The heater is in a glass tube. Measure continuity from one end to the other, you should see a few ohms. if it is open, your heater is definitely burned. I got a good deal on a replacement heater on Ebay. I think it was $17 including shipping. The heater being bad will cause major frost buildup in the back of the freezer and stop the Ice maker from working and damage food. Be sure to thorougly dry the freezer compartment prior to putting it back in operation. If too much moisture is present, the new heater will evaporate the moisture into the Ice dispensoer motor and solenoid that swtiches from crushed to solid ice. Hope this helps. it has nothing to do with your problem, but please Check out my website www.playstationclinic.com

SOURCE: whirlpool side by side refrigerator not cooling

Hello danielscynt,
Welcome to Fixya,

You said, freezer is fine the refrigerator is 50-65 does not get colder than 50.the evaporator fan is working but it seems to be blowing very little air
Have a 1998 Hotpoint Model # CTX16CAZDRAD Serial # ZS738209. The refrigerator is not cooling. Temp is at 66 degrees with setting at 5. The Freezer is working, but it seems to be running all the time. Please help!

There are a few things that come to mind!

The Freezer is working, but it seems to be running all the time, you said!.
This could be a bad thermostat!

But lets try some simple maintenance first!
Is your freezer packed too the hilt with packages???????
Where the articles cover the air vents in the freezer?

The freezer and the fridge share the cold air and the passages must not be blocking the cold air from moving out of the freezer!.Search your freezer !

Also your fridge is 10 years old!
Did you ever remove the plastic grille at the bottom of the fridge along the front, and GENTLY run a refrigerator brush along the black metal tubes running back and forth under the fridge?
( You can buy this brush at any hardware store $10.)
They must not be covered in ten years of lint and dust. These narrow tubes carry the freon and run in this parallel fashion back and forth, so they are cooled by the air being **** through them.
if not and they overheat your fridge will get warm.

If the tubes are found to be covered or submerged in dust sometimes I have found them one to two inches thick in dust, and sometimes they are even not visible until you clean the dust out.
Then it will take 10 to 24 hours for the system to get back to full working temperature again. As long as the heat did not cause permanent damage!

if these are not the answer, then you may need a hands on diagnoses!
BUT, most of the time these two things are what I find!

Let me know how it goes!!!!!!!!

Thank You for asking my advice!

SOURCE: not cooling

Sometimes when the evaporator fan goes out, it takes part of the motherboard also. (part number WR55X10552, which also subs into a WR55X10656) If this is the case, I would not expect the refrig to be running either. (If your compressor still runs, check door switch.)

The cooling fan comes on five minutes after starting


Unless you have the A/C on, that may be normal. The cooling fans only run once the coolant temperature exceeds about 215 degrees. It runs until the temp is down to about 200 degrees. The fans will cycle on and off as necessary to keep the coolant within that range. When the car is in motion, the airflow thru the radiator is normally sufficient to keep the coolant stable and the fans do not run. Only if you turn on the A/C will the fans runs constantly, since the A/C system needs constant airflow thru the evaporator.

Cooling fan is not coming on. no temp light though


Is the engine even overheating? Suzuki V-Twins are notorious for running cool. If the fan motor is working (test by sending power through the leads) then test across the temperature sending switch with an ohmmeter. First measure the resistance cold. Then run the engine until it's completely warmed up and measure again. IT should read a different resistance, +/- 300 ohms. If there's no difference the best way to verify after that would be to set up a rig to hold the switch in a pot of boiling water; it should definitely read a difference at 212 degrees. Of course, with any 18 year old mechanical device your mileage will vary.

Weatherkink model 13AJA42A01 3 YEARS OLD. UNIT WILL NOT COOL LIKE IT DID. UTILITY BILL HIGHER. ADDED FREON DIDNT HELP. LOW SIDE 72PSIG . HIGH SIDE 300 PSIG. AMBIENT TEMP. 92 DEGREES. THERMOSTAT SETTIN


Check-1)Airflow be sure inside and outside coils are clean. Plus filter. 2)Leaks in duct return and supply 3)Temp difference across cooling coil. (Evaporator)should be around 18degree diffrence between air going in and air going out. 4)See that nothing is making heat run at same time. Like a stuck sequencer or short in control wires.

Whirlpool Model # ETClCHMXK009... Freezer is freezing but refrigerator is not cooling well...


Hi

If refrigerator is not cooling properly it can be due to a defrost timer, which is causing the fridge to go into defrost cycle. Usually it takes 45-60 minutes for refrigerator to come out of defrost cycle. If the timer is bad then it will not come out of defrost cycle and can result in this kind of issues. It can also occur due to defrost thermostat, it allows current to pass through it at temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit and prevents current from passing through it at 40 to 60 degrees. This is difficult to test, though, because it takes a prolonged, very-cold temperature to turn it on. The defrost thermostat is snapped onto the top portion of the evaporator. The thermostat sends temperature information to the processor. The defrost heater must be replaced when replacing the thermostat.
1. Remove the lower fan duct work from the evaporator cover.
2. Remove the 1/4-in. evaporator cover screws and remove the evaporator cover.
3. Disconnect the defrost thermostat wiring connector.
4. Remove the defrost thermostat from the evaporator.

Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

We do not run our a/c unit during the day so in the evening I turn it on and it seems like it takes forever for the inside of the house to cool down. This is an older model carrier and was in the home when...


Take a look at the condensor outside. With the unit running even on a cool day, the condensor fan (outside) should be blowing hot air. The air temp coming out of the register should be 20 degrees cooler yhan the coils in the house.. This is a reverse way to chk the evaporator temp for proper cooling. Now, the wire could be a problem if it is coming from the thermostat. Take notice of the outside unit is being controlled by the thermostat by having someone go from off to cool on the T-stst. If everything is working but the discharge air is warm your unit may need a charge. If I haven't confused both of us, I'll watch for you reply -Ned

The frost on the pipe indicates you have a dirty filter, dirty evaporator coil, Blower not running at the proper speed (to slow) or you are low on refrigerant.

How do you know if your engine is overheating? the coolant says 210 degrees wut do i do


When your engine is operating normally, the temp on the gauge should be between 190 and 225. The thermostat is set to open at 190 and this controls minimum engine temp. If you sit in traffic the temp will climb to 225 and then the cooling fan will begin to operate to make sure that you don't overheat.You know that water boils at 212 but you have to add 10 degrees for every pound of pressure the rad cap is set to. Also your coolant has antifreeze in it which raises the boiling point even more. A normal overheat condition of your engine would be 300 or more. Does this help?
