SOURCE: Refrigerator not cooling, only fan is running.

Somewhere air is getting past the door seal. The door may not be closing all the way. Frost cannot accumulate without a source of water. It comes in the air thats getting in past the seal. Check the drawers to be sure they are all the way in. Check anything that may be sticking out that may prevent the door from closing all the way. Check the door seal for damage and replace the seal if any significant damage is found. Good luck

RF267aewp french door refrigerator is acting crazy. Sometimes compressor fan runs, sometimes it doesn't same with freezer fans. Front control panel will not respond so I cannot get into diagno


Had same problem on my fridge a long time ago. Here is what was wrong on mine. Debris had clogged up around the fan blades to the point where the very small motor that runs the fan was not powerful enough to make the fan turn. When this happens the compressor has to work harder and harder until it finally shut down on safety cutout. I had to open the back of the fridge and clean up the fan blades, [ took the opportunity to put a small amount of oil on the fan shaft too, my Norge fridge is now over 50 years old.]

Compressor & fan not running.


Hi and welcome ti FixYa, I am Kelly.
Since you did not include your model number this will be a GENERIC response.

Reasons for the compressor and fan not to run.

1. Defrost control problem. Mechanical defrost timer stuck or failure. On units with Electronic Adaptive Defrost controls; a PCB failure.

2. Defrost thermostat or defrost heating element failure.

3. Fresh Food temp. control failure.

These are the 3 most common failures. The fans should run anytime the units temp control is above the "set temp" and the unit is NOT in the automatic defrosting cycle.

If you provide a model number I can pass on some troubleshooting tips to hopefully help you isolate the failed componenet.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Fridge compartments too warm


There are several possibilities on your model. Compressor start components and Adaptive defrost Control. I would like you to pull away from wall and unplug , rempove the cover over compressor and feel the compressor to tell me if warm, hot or too hot to keep your hand there, Waiting for your response, Sea Breeze

Fan runs, all controls work compressor does not run.


It sounds as if the unit has lost it's refrigerant charge. Take to small appliance repair for confirmation, but it probably leaked out.

Penguin model 610012-001a/c compressor won't start


I would check to make sure that the control is sending the "cool" signal to the control unit. LO on the room temp display usually means that the fan speed is set to low. Is LO and Auto showing on the display at the same time. Try resetting the thermostat first. Hold down the Mode and Zone buttons with the tstat off. While holding them down, turn the tstat back on and hold the buttons down until FF appears on the screen. Release the buttons and try the AC.
If this does not work, on the control board is a freeze control switch plug (blue usually). Try unplugging this unit and insert a small jumper wire. If the Compressor comes on and runs then you have a bad freeze control switch. If not, then you should replace the control board.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

Refigerator not cooling and hot to the touch


It sounds a lot like lost charge caused by a leak in your system. If your unit has been moved or improperly cleaned, some part of the pressurized system may be damaged.
Refrigerant (with very small molecules) may leak off over many years but it shouldn't happen in the single digits.

Freezer cold, fridge warm


The small cooling fan in the freezer compartment that sends chilled air to the food side is defective and needs replacement.  Sometimes that are only frozen stuck.

When you receive advice from this website you have to understand that without the item in front of us, we are only able to provide "a best guess" as to what the problem might be based on you description of the defect.  If you haven't described a clear and precise description of the defect you decrease the chances of an accurate reply.  Thank you.
