SOURCE: Both fridge and freezer are turned up to maximum

Sounds like a failure to defrost.
Look on the freezer rear wall inside the freezer for ice bukdup.
If there is ice the defrost components ,must be replaced.

Probably needs new fan. Most likely broken wire. Others have soldered if break easy to get to.

The fridge compartment not getting any cold air.


Well for whatever reason the fridge compartment is now getting cold air again and its all working fine. Have no idea whats gone on with it but is working again hahaha. The only thing that we did was take the back off the freezer, where it houses the fan motor, the motor wasnt quite straight so I straightened it and now its working. Whether that was the problem to begin with I have no idea.

FRIDGE COMPARTMENT FREEZING


try this,make sure you dont have anything blocking your blower in the freezer.if that is okay if you have seperate controls for the freezer and the fridge,try setting the frige setting lower and the freezer higher,this makes the blower work more in the freezer.hope it helps.

Top half fridge not cold freezer department fine


I had the same problem; the top fridge compartment was warming up to 14C while the freezer compartment was starting to defrost (frozen stuff was starting to become soft. I took the rear wall off the freezer compartment and found it all iced up. I defrosted it with a blower heater then powered it back up. It all worked fine for a month when the same thing happened. I figured that the defrost cycle wasn't working. I located the defrost timer on the rear right-side of the fridge. I rotated it several times and found that the fridge was turning on and off. I rotated it until the fridge turned off. I waited 5 minutes then stuck my head into the freezer compartment and felt the rear wall at the bottom where he drain is; it felt warm so I guessed the defrost heater element was ok. I ordered a defrost timer and installed it. I haven't had a problem since.

REFRIG E402BRE


My fridge (E440T but I believe the E522 is similar) has EXACTLY the same symptoms and the reason was a broken fan wire in the freezer compartment (behind the rear panel). The fridge compartment works by drawing air from the freezer and blowing it into the fridge compartment. If the fan in the freezer doesn't work, then your fridge won't get cold (there is another fan in the fridge compartment so it will stay a little cold but not enough).

If you're game, I created a document for others to follow if interested at http://mail.accentis.com.au/downloads/misc/How%20I%20fixed%20my%20Fisher%20and%20Paykel%20Fridge%20Active%20Smart%20Fridge.pdf
Thanks to all postings on this site - it really helped a lot, had me some fun and saved money!

Fridge not working


I've had this happen to my Kenmore 73503 several times. The 1st time took me a few hours to figure out what the problem was.

Basically the fridge is cooled from the freezer, so when you say your freezer is -2 degrees, it's a big tip off to the problem.

If you look very close in the freezer compartment at the back, you'll notice an opening with a little door at the top of the freezer compartment. This opening extends up the inside of the back of the fridge to the top of the fridge area via a square plastic tube.

Basically what happens in my fridge is the family loads the freezer to high especially at the top/back. This restricts or closes off the opening for the cold air to the fridge portion of the appliance ....resulting in a warm fridge, but cold freezer. Just remove the articles at the back of the freezer to correct problem. (It will take a few hours for the cold air to cool the fridge down)

Note: the temperature control unit in the fridge area controls the little door at the top of the freezer compartment, so if you haven't blocked off the opening, the next place to look would be either at the mechanical parts of the little door or the temperature control unit itself in the fridge
