Is there any way you can find me that model number. I need to know that to be able to pull your model up and advise you if it has Adaptive Defrost, Defrost Timer Or a control Board. Thanks, Sea Breeze

This is known as the CZT or Climate Zone Technology fan and if you direct wire it and it does not run, replace.
This is the cold zone fan which supplies cold air to the meat and crisper drawers.

Fridge compartment is not cold enough


inside the back of your freezer there are two holes that lead to your refrige there is also a fan with a small motor attached is the fan blowing the air fromthe freezer into the refridge section also are the two holes plugged up with ice these are some of the first things that you should be checking turning that switch basicly jut opens the damper door that goes fromthe freezer to the fridge so in allactuality if the door is pluged with ice or the air isnt being pushed through those holes your refridge wont get that cold also another thing to check would be the operation of that small damper door if you do have a fan runnning and do not have ice but if the door is always closed this could also cause this problem hope this helps

Refrigerator side doesn't keep things cold, just cool, despite having it on the coldest setting and the cold vent open between the freezer. The freezer is working fine.


Look on the back wall of the freezer for a ice buildup. If there is ice you have a defrost problem. The defrost timer is in the fresh food section inside the control panel.The defrost heater and defrost thermostat are behind the freezer back panel inside the freezer.
Also check the freezer fan. If there is no ice buildup in the freezer the freezer fan motor could be bad.

Food is freezing on left side of refrig and not so cold on right


Check the back wall of the freezer section for any ice buildup. This would be from a failure to defrost and requires parts.
Check the freezer side for the evaporator fan motor. Is the fan motor running?
If not a fan motor is needed.
If there is ice on the back wall of the freezer you can activate the defrost control by turning the cold control thermostat OFF then back ON "3" times.
Once you activate the control listen closely in the freezer side for a sizzling sound. This would indicate the defrost thermostat and defrost heater are good and the defrost timer needs replacing. If there is no sizzling sound after 20 minutes,the defrost thermostat and possibly the defrost heater need replacing.

2 year old side by side refrigerator & freeze stopped working. Neither side will cool. Model # 106.55122700 manufactored 6/2007. No pool of water, etc.


Is the machine turned on and can you hear it running??

If nothing is running then it could be a defective cold control (thermostat) or the machine went into a defrost mode and failed there. If it is running then.....

Open the freezer door and you should hear a fan motor running.
If not the fan motor is defective and needs replaced.

Look to see if there is frost building up on the back panel in the freezer section. If you see a buildup, then the defrost system needs repaired.

There is another fan motor located in the machine section behind the cover on the back rear of the fridge. It must be running as well.

If none of these items check bad, then you could well have a failed sealed system, including the compressor.
The sealed system carries a 5 year warrant. Call your selling dealer for service.

Side by side refridge was dirty and I cleaned


I would pull the refrig out , and remove the back panel , covering the compressor and fan motor . Check to see if the fan is working . Fan not working , causes the divider panel , to get very hot . Also , fan not working , causes the compressor to over heat and cut off on the overload .

Freezer is not staying cold. The freezer is on but its not staying cold enough to keep the food frozen. The Ice maker switch is turned on but ice is still melting. Turned the control to coldest but still...


Sounds like the evap. fan motor is not turning. What is the freezer temp. have you measured it ? What about the fresh food section, (fridge compartment).

Anyway, try this. Hold the door switch in the closed position with the freezer door ajar and see/listen for the fan coming on. If you can't be sure, the best way to do this is to first turn the thermostat all the way to the "off" postion, and with the freezer door ajar and holding the door sw. closed (pushed in). turn the thermostat back on. (you may need to turn off then back on first if your arms aren't long enough) You should hear the fan motor start.

NOTE; you may hear the compressor overload "click" off if trying to start it right after shutting down, this is normal (under short cycles or manual restarts). You may also hear the condensor fan motor run (under the fridge by compressor) this too is normal. try to indentify the freezer fan (evaporater fan motor) running or not.

good luck.

Right side of refrigerator not cooling; frezzer working great


The coil is the thermostat that controls the damper which allows more or less cold air into the fridge compartment and should be put back as you found it. Very important. The problem is that the freezer is not defrosting, hence the ice build-up on the back wall. Either the defrost timer is faulty or the defrost heater is blown. There are two thermostats behind the freezer panel, one in line with the fan and one in line with the heater and they will be clamped to the pipework. Both these thermostats should be closed when iced up. If the fan is not running, that could be faulty too or its thermostat.

Listen for a fan running when you open the freezer door. May have to hold the light switch closed for it to come on. If you don't hear it then the fan is most likely bad. The evavorator fan motor is the most common repair on the trio's
