Freezer and Refrigirator not cooling

The freezer and refrigirator are not cold.
The refrigirator was unplugged for a week.
After plugging it back in, the temperature inside the freezer and refrigirator remains warm.

Evaporator: room temperature (to the touch)
Evaporator fan: running
Defrost Heater: room temperature (to the touch)
Condenser Fan: running
Cold Controls set to 3 (factory)

Fridge manufactured: 07-2005
What could be the problem? What to check for?

    My Whirlpool side by side refridgerator with the ultra ease filtration system broke down this morning. It was fine yesterday, but I woke up to get a glass of ice water and all of the cubes had melted, with water all over the bottom of the freezer. Both sides are not cooling. We unplugged and let it sit for 5 minutes and replugged it in, but still nothing happened. We checked the back of the fridge and there is no sound from it at all. However, the lights on both sides work, I am confused.

    My mini-fridge just stopped working the other day. I just unplugged it, and the motor is warm, so it has been getting an electric current through it, but it is not cooling at all.

    I have a Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator (model # 106.5706.601). The freezer stop working properly as many of the contents are thawing, however they remain "cool" tempature wise. I opened up the back panel and the fan is still running and there is power to the compressor. I'm not sure the relay is working properly though. Additionally, the water dispenser is working but there is no new ice being made in the automatic dispenser. Can you assist me in troubleshooting?

You didn't say if the compressor is running or not. If it is and all other things you stated are running then it has a sealed system problem. The sealed system comes with a 5 yr warranty in most cases (check owners manual). If the compressor is not running then listen for a click at the compressor. If you hear the click then I would replace the relay on the compressor. If you need further help I will need the complete model # off the sticker inside the fridge section.

Hotpoint refridgeerator side by side fan not working nor does the compressor?


First thing I'd do is defrost it completely, that means turning it off for a few hours with door open & letting the ice melt, you could be getting a buildup of ice in your freezer jamming the fan before the automatic defrost has time to clear it. Also check that the seals are sealing completely, (that can allow frost to form in freezer), if not use a hair dryer to soften them (gently) & mould them back into line.

GE GSS25LGMA refrigirator/freezer refrigirator side is freezing


There is an electrically activated air dampener in the upper left back side of the refrigerator section which most likely has broken (in the open position), allowing cold air from the freezer to continue to enter the fresh foods section. Replace the dampener assembly.

Freezer (top) is cool, but refrigirator at room temperature


Your first step is to make sure the condenser coils and the fan are clean and there is nothing blocking air flow around the outside of the fridge. A good vaccuming and brushing will do it wonders.

If this does not improve the operation. Tell the landlord that it is bad and if it is part of the supplied appliances, he should replace or repair it for you.

If he is not cooporative, do some online searches for methods to convince him to do his job or who to contact to ensure he doesn't cause you harm.

Refrigirator is not cooling. Freezer is cooling


if you have a bottom freezer, you need to defrost the unit the cool air from the freeezer is what cools the top part, but the channels are iced up
unplug the unit and let it thaw out overnight
