You may have a defective door switch. The switch has a paddle that is depressed when the door is closed to turn the lights off. This switch can easily fail or sometimes, the paddle does not deploy to turn the lights on. This could be due to gunk built up on the paddle. More than likely, the switch has failed.

No light, no cooling in refrigerator, but cold freezer Americana A3316ABSDRWW


This usually means you have ice build up between the two units. Defrost the freezer and if possible let it sit to completely thaw all ice from the channels that allow cold air from the freezer to move to the Refrigerator side. You will also want to check your door seals to make sure you don't have any leaks or a bad seal causing your issue. The issue with the light is most likely a burned Bulb or bad switch. Replace the bulb and see if that resolves the issue. You also need to check and make sure the fans are working properly which move the air from the freezer to the refrigerator side and that all the cooling grill son the unit are clean and not clogged with dust build up.

My kenmore side-by-side refrigerator is less than 4-years old. freezer works but refrigerator stde does not get cold. ice accumulates on lower vent in refrigerator.


all it does is the evap fan blows cold air from the freezer into the fridge section and returns through the bottom air vent,so if there's ice there most likely one of the doors was left open,check the freezer for frozen water droplets on packages or on the walls and shelves of the machine,if you don't see that open the freezer door,if you don't hear the fan blowing you could have a bad evap fan motor.if the fan is blowing in the freezer from the bottom remove the second draw or bin and put your hand on the back inside wall of the freezer,if there's frost or like snow on the back wall you have a defrost problem,bad defrost thermostat,defrost heater,timer or board depending on what model you have,if the fan is blowing and you don't see any problems that i talked about you could have a bad damper,on some machines there's a damper door that opens and closes to let cold air into the fridge section,if it's bad it won't open and no cold air can blow in from the freezer,if you think the door was left open,remove anything that's in the way,in the freezer side and the fridge side,shut the machine down or unplug it and with a hair dryer melt out the ice,don't keep the heat in one place for to long,you can melt the vent if it's plastic or styrofoam,after you think it's melted out start the machine and put your hand up in the left hand corner in the fridge section and see if you can feel any cold air blowing in,there could be ice up there too,next time send the model number so i can look up your model,on a side by side you'll find the tag on the right hand side wall in the fridge up near the ceiling or on the ceiling near the light.hope this helps,if you have another fridge you could move the food and just shut the fridge down with the doors open and let it melt out on it's own overnight.good luck

Freezer side of my RS2534WW Samsung is not working, fridge side is fine, evap coil fan is running,,, what could be wrong , it's only 7 years old


Your indications does not make sense! Your unit has ONE compressor that uses ONE evaporator coil to cool both sides. So if the FREEZER side is not cooling the fridge side should not cool either! Are you sure you don't have the freezer and refrigerator sides reversed?
