We found a service note on the web that showed us how to run self-test. It seems the evaporator fan is not coming on, so we'll have that replaced.

FRT125GW warm fridge problem


Hello jumptrout51 - Generally speaking, if the compressor is on then the freezer fan should be on as well. Note that it does not indicate a failed fan motor. The fan motor receives power from the temperature thermostat. Therefore, at this point, I would personally recommend connecting with an experienced technician to determine the underlying cause.

Tip

Replacing your evaporator fan.


Have you noticed that when you open the freezer door that you hear a fan running? That's the evaporator fan. When that fan motor goes bad, you'll notice that "the freezer works mostly OK, but the refrigerator/beer section is warm".

Now, this tip is listed for a top freezer but the technique is basically the same for a side by side or even bottom freezer models. Matter of fact, this tip is for all domestic makes and models EXCEPT for Amana (when an Amana evap fan fails, it's generally NOT the failure of the fan motor... 98% of the time the problem is the defrost limiter).

Before you replace the motor, you'll obviously need a new one. Look inside the refrigerator compartment for a "data sticker". Copy the model number off of that (Kenmore's will be all digits and look something like this ***.1234567. Where "*" is a series of 3 digits. Follow this link to see what I mean) and then go online to the Sears parts website (it doesn't matter if you bought your fridge from Sears or not... this is a PARTS lookup only) and enter the model number. Then you can "filter" your search simply by typing "evaporator" (no quotes) into the filter box. Then you have the part number, cool Huh? Armed with this, you can call a local appliance parts retailer OR plug that part number into any search engine and go price shopping!

UNPLUG YOUR FRIDGE BEFORE PERFORMING REPAIRS!!!

Ok.. Just a bit of info for you if you have to sometime in the future do a parts search. This unit is the same as the Hotpoint HSS25GFTWW

Now for the icemaker problem.

When ice makers start making less ice it is usually a sign of some other problem.
1. Ice build up on the evaporator coils in the back of the freezer.
2. A slow or not functioning evaporator fan.
3. Dirty condensor coils in the back or the unit
4. A condensor fan that is running slow or not turning.
5. An automatic defrosting problem (most common problem)

If you have ice cream you probably notice that it is softer than usual. Or things in the freezer just are not as stiff as they usually are. When you notice this the freezer is warming up but the fresh food compartment is fine.

1st.. check to make sure the control panel settings are set to "0" for the freezer and "37" for the fresh food compartment.

2nd.. look for any obvious signs of ling build up in the bottom and back of the unit.

3rd .. Listen to the evaporator fan in the freezer compartment.
a. must be running full speed
b. should not sound like it is striking anything

4th.. Is the chassis near the doors hot to the touch? (should be warm not hot)
a. if hot to the touch the condensor is not getting rid of the heat due to lint build up, or slow / stuck / failed condensor fan.

5th.. there is always the very rare chance that there is an actual problem in the ice maker. (thermostat)

Freezer working but refrigerator is not cooling


if freezer is close to zero, top to bottom, and fridge is warm(ing), then you likely have a defrost problem, you will notice an abundance of snow/frost on back wall of freezer. it could either be your heater, thermistor, defrost safety thermostat, or your defrost control/main cpu, depending on model. if either or both sides are warm at the top, and cold at bottom, then your freezer fan is out. again depending on your model, it may just be the fan, or a combination fan/main cpu board hope this helps

The freezer side does not freeze on the top shelf. The refrigerator freezes everything in the bottom but reads 47 degrees and doesn't cool the top shelves. The fan under the fridge runs fine.


Behind the back wall of the freezer about halfway down, probably behind the light bulb (if there is one there) there is a fan. My guess is that the fan isn't working, or is slow. To test, open the freezer door, then hold the door switch closed and listen for the fan.

This fan should be blowing air up the back of the freezer, and send some of the cold air through a vent at the top of the freezer into the fridge. The air then descends through the fridge and reenters the freezer through a vent at the bottom. If the fan is broken, or if the upper vent is somehow blocked or broken, the cold air will enter (rather than exit) the fridge side at the bottom vent. Because cold air tends to descend and warm air rises, the cold air will freeze the stuff at the bottom of the fridge, and the thermostat (at the top of the fridge) will say it is warm.

Fridge section runs warm. Freezer ok it seems.


Sounds like the inside fan is getting worn out. Should vary in speed. Try replacing the fan and see if that fixes it. I'd bet it will. ken

Freezer freezes, fridge below will not cool


if your freezer is still freezing fine, except for perhaps a slight softening of ice cream. this is a good sign. the second fan you are looking for is located behind the back wall of the freezer, emptying the freezer will gain you access to the screws to remove he panel. you should be able to hear the fan blowing when the freezer door is opened.if indeed the fan is blowing you may have frost building up on the rear panel, this would indicate a defrost problem( unit not self defrosting) and so much frost has built up that the air flow has been restricted to the refrig compartment

Frigidaire refrigerator is warm on top of frig and freezer but fine on the bottom of both.


i suspect the fan is not working. take the back panel off inside the freezer and check that the fan is free to rotate, check for continuity thro the fan motor and check you have power to the fan
