If the motor you speak of is the compressor, the condenser coils next to it should be warm and the condenser fan next to that should be running. Compressor may be bad.

Upright whirlpool freezer is not freezing. fan motor comes on, light comes on but is not getting cold. how can I trouble shoot the problem?


Could be the cold control thermostat that is the problem. You didn't provide your model number so couldn't get specific here. I did find another forum thread that might give you more clues: http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/threads/36458-Whirlpool-freezer-cold-but-not-freezing

My Fridgemaster MC50160 Freestanding Fridge Freezer is defrosting, any suggestions?


Check for proper operation of the compressor motor which powers the cooling cycle. Make sure that the thermostat is sending electricity to the motor when called for and that the condenser fan is also operating. If motor is cold to the touch it has not been running - check the start capacitor if it has one and/or the start winding of motor.

The freezer is not getting cold. Recently, I replaced the fan motor and it is running and blowing good. I turned the temperature alarm setting to the off position because it will sound due to the warm...


I would replace the defrost termination thermostat. They were a frequent failure item on
Frigidaire units I service, causing this condition. Around 8 to 20 dollars depending on
vendor. Also check the defrost timer as I have found at least one that was stuck due to
mis assembly. (the replacements are from a different vendor). Hope this helps.

Frosting up badly despite having just been defrosted


Hello,

Most times this is a bad cold control, but there are other things to check for. Make sure the condenser fan is working and the coils are not covered with dust. A separated heat exchanger ( small capillary tubing soldered to the large suction line ) can separate from one another and make the fridge run too long. - tape tubing back together. A poor working evaporator fan motor could also make the fridge run too long and freeze - replace the fan motor. An inefficient compressor or refrigeration system could make the fridge run too long and freeze - have a service tech check this out. A misaligned control settings, make sure the air damper and cold control have not been bumped and are out of normal settings. Stuck open air diffusers or air dampers are becoming more and more common for allowing too much air to be blown into the fresh food section and freezing things. On all frost free fridge's the freezer temp air is blown into the fresh food section, if you have "easy" to freeze items ( eggs, veggies in water, etc ) in front of or under where the freezer temp air comes out, they could freeze - store them in a different spot. Doors not closing properly making the fridge run too long is something else to check for cold control and air deflector As you know, the deflector directs the freezer air toward the front of the frig and the rear of the cold control.
Hope this helpout.....

The freezer motor is not running. the ice in the freezer is melted


If you are referring to the evaporator fan motor located inside the freezer, if it is not running, then your symptoms would be cold food at the bottom of both sections, assuming its a side by side, and warm food at the top, both sides, also the icemaker wont make ice, and water likely wont come out the door. Depending on your brand, it could be the motor itself has burnt out, or possibly a bimetal thermostat, a cal rod heater, or an electronic control board.

My amana upright gets cool but not cold enough to freeze probably not even as cold as a fidge. the problem started when we moved and stored it out in a shop that was partially heated. since then we have...


Good day,
Somewhat handicapped not knowing if it's a conventional freezer or frost free.
1. If it's frost free check to see if the fan motor is running in the freezer compartment.
2. As well if it has a fan motor in the compressor compartment, see if it is running as well.

3. If it is a conventional model, make sure it is turned on and make sure it is running. If running, then it has lost it's refrigerant charge or the compressor has lost it's pumping capacity.

4. If it is item 3, then unless it's less then 5 years old, the sealed
system/compressor problem is so pricey that it's not a practical repair. If under 5 years Amana will pay for these repairs, whether it's conventional or frost free.
