Freezer cold/Not Cold in Frig KITCHENAID Model KBLC36MHS01
KITCHENAID Model KBLC36MHS01 Hi, I pulled the damper in tyhe Frig as it is not getting cold. It is in the open position. Checked Evap fan in freezer, it is not working. No sign of significant ice buildup. Ordered new evap fan and installed. Let run four hours after plugging in. Not working. Unplugged, turned off remote on/off switch, plugged in and turned on remote start switch. Still did not come on. Also held door button down when freezer door was open. Still did not come on. Any idea what to do next? I need this thing up asap as our home is being sold. Thanks so much for assistance.

Freezer supplies cold air for the fridge section.. Check fridge gasket for tight seal, operating freezer fan along with proper operation of damper mechanism which directs flow of cold air into the refrigerator.
Sounds like might be the Temperature Control Thermostat or some sensor in the circuitry telling the compressor and cooling parts to keep running because it thinks it isn't cold enough. There is probably a circulation fan to blow the cold air through the damper and it may not shut off either, conveying too much cold thermal conduction through ducting and all frig parts, regardless of damper being closed or open. With the temperature set on low, do the compressor and fans ever shut off once cold temperatures are attained? Freezer should be 0 or lower, frig 35-40. check this video at RepairClinic.comhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5vA8Ksv5kVY&feature=player_embedded
all it does is blow cold air from the freezer into the fridge section,open the freezer door,you should hear the fan blowing,no fan fridge will be warm bad evap fan motor,also send the brand name and model number,some machines have dampers in them if the damper is bad it blocks the cold air from entering the fridge section,send model number and brand name,
That can be the result of a couple things. Check to see if you hear the fan running in the freezer side? If not, since cold air falls, the cold air could be migrating from the freezer into the frig bottom section through the air duct hole in the back of the frig behind the crisper drawers. If the fan is running the check the air damper in the top left of the frig section. If the frig side is cold enough you should not feel air blowing through. Air flow is only very slight. You will have to remove some plastic cover or duct piece to see if it is closing. If the air damper seems to be working properly, you may have a refrigeration problem indicated by frost build up on the lower part of the freezer back wall. You may want to call in a pro at that point. Hope this helps point you in the right direction.
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
open the frig door put youer hand over the vent comeing into the frig there should be cold air blowing with freezer door shut if not then opent the freezer door if you get cold air out of the vent now you have a defrost problem if you still have no cold air the damper door on that vent is not opening it will need to be replaced
first check your damper door from the freezer to the refrigerator compartment make sure its in the proper position. Then turn off the refrigerator for a few hours until the heavy frost melts away. turn on the refrigerator check the refrigeration cycle, is it working properly, is it going into defrost are the defrost heaters working.
If you open the fresh food side (not the freezer), and look to the upper left side you will see a plastic shroud or cover. Behind that cover is a printed circuit board (p.c. board) and a damper motor. That motor brings cold air from the freezer to the fresh food side. The whole damper assembly may need to be replaced. That also includes the cold controls for both sides of the "fridge".
