Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

SOURCE: Heater blows cold air from top vents after running for 1.3 hours

Sounds like you may be able to fix it by flushing your antifreeze and back flushing the heater core. Some car owners cheep out and put stop leak into the antifreeze, others dont change there antifreeze at all. Both are mistakes.

SOURCE: Freezer works, frig does not. Also ice build up in freezer coil

I just worked on a FF801W which is supposed to be very similar. The defrost heater in mine was of the glass tube type and located under the evaporator. There was a bimetal thermostat clipped to the top of the evaporator and a thermal fuse (sealed in a clear plastic tube) nearby. The connections were behind a little plastic cover (2 screws) in the back wall just above the evaporator.

Mine was iced up like yours and I had to defrost it with a hair dryer. All the defrosting parts in the freezer compartment turned out to work so I now suspect the defrost timer (down by the compressor). I've marked it and I'm waiting to see if it's turning.

Refrigerator freezes


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.

Frig too warm on top, too cold on bottom


inside the fridge section you have a fan damper assy.if you go here you can see it
http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Damper/WR49X10091/1055112
part number WR49X10091,the cold air comes through the damper and the fan in it blows the cold around into the fridge section,warm air rises so this is why it's warm on top and colder on the bottom.i just installed this part for a customer,unplug the machine or shut it down,remove the 4 screws that hold the top light assy. on drop it down,unplug the wire harness,pop off the cover to the water filter,remove the top two shelves then pop off the middle cover on the back wall,this allows you to remove the two screws that are behind it,remove all screws and remove the damper fan assy.look at the instructions,the one i worked on i had to remove the gasket that's on the freezer wall side and replace it with the fat gasket in the box and then put it back together again,it took me around 35 minutes to do the job.hope this helps you out

Vegetable bin keep freezing food. Model # ED2CHOXKQ05


Hello,
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. Good Luck

Amana refrigerator not cold


The fan that should circulate air between the two compartments has failed. These usually have 'sleeve' bearings which can become sticky and fail to start up without help. Go to the Sears/parts website and enter your Amana model number; if you are lucky, they will have a line drawing of your model which can aid in finding how to access the fan:
Sears Parts Dept.
They have info for thousands of non-Sears items and most can be ordered via that website as well.

My fridge freezer comprises of the top one being the fridge and bottom is the freezer. its Zanussi by Electrolux . problem is the fridge is not functioning and its warm (its not cold at all) but freezer is...


It sounds like the fan in your freezer is not working so it can't get the cold air to the frig or your coils are not defrosting and it is stopped u and cant blow air into te frig, One way to check if you hear the fan and know that it is working open the frig and put your hand up near the vent to see if you can fill cold air if you can't now open the freezer door if you can feel the cold air or more air r coils then you could before then your coils are stoped up the unit is not defrosting.

Frig just not Cold


Check to see if air is blowing into refrigerator compartment.If no air is blowing.It may be that the settings on your dials are not right.If they are and air is not blowing,your evaporator fan is not working,or may be obstructed.

LG icebeam door cooling


Normally the fans get turned off when you open the door so it does not blow all the cold air out. The fans should only run when the doors are closed. Push in the door switch and see if the fan works then (of course it has to be in the middle of a cooling cycle or the fans still won't run).

Frig not cold but freezer is ice maker not making much ice either


Is your fan blowing in the freezer? Frost on the back wall of the freezer usually indicates a defrost problem... defrost themostate, heaters, take back panel off and check evap for frost build up and if your fan in working.
