AT TIMES The fan usually stops working due to ice obstruction when the defrost terminator has gone out and u get ice build up? u can check the terminator with a multi meter for continuity but do not check at room temperature. stick the terminator in cup of ice water for 20 minutes then check it for continuity, should be closed when cold and open at room temperature.
May also need to check the defrost timer, The defrost timer is usually found behind the front grill "toe kick" of the refrigerator. Or in the fridge compartment near middle top section.
u can get by and test manually by placing a small screw driver into the tiny slot or hole underneath the timer and turn slowly clockwise till u hear 1 click. this will engage ur defrost cycle in about 15 minutes u should be able to come back and feel the heat in freezer as it melts the ice providing ur terminator is not bad?
Another way to test it is with a multi meter. Remove timer it from fridge and you will see 4 prongs numbered 2,1,4,3 in that order. Place ur meter prong on prong 1 & 3 (if your fridge has a capacitor wired in series with the windings, then u check for micro fares rather than OHMS) If u cannot confirm this test, still try the next.
Take ur meter prong and connect to prong 1 & 4, it should read resistance or ohms ( closed) now remove prongs and place on prong 1 & 2, this should now read infinity or open (no ohms) now take a small screwdriver place it in the tiny hole or slot under the timer. Turn it clockwise slowly till u hear 1 click. Now ur 1& 2 should read closed ( showing ohms or resistance) now place meter prongs on 1 & 4 and you it should now show open ( or no resistance - no ohms) this is how u know ur timer is good, Remember when testing for ohms ADJUST meter to use a high ohms rating in the thousands as the resistance is very high in OHMS. And adjusting to low ohms rating may give a false reading or not show the proper resistance..

Another item to check with a meter is the heating element itself. Located under the evaporator coils. It should show continuity or resistance OHMS WHEN TESTED AT BOTH ENDS OF THE PRONGS .

Lastly check the cold control thermostat with a meter for both OHMS and volts ( VOLTS is a live test with fridge plugged in so be careful) It must show 110 volts. An open or thermostat that reads infinity will not allow the proper cooling and defrosting cycles to operate and may in fact stop anything from happening as if there is no power to the unit?

ALSO CHECK THE AIR FLOW VENT SYSTEM and THERMISTORS At times it can get stuck to far closed or open. Some units feature a digital electric adjusting vent system while others are manually set. Check for any ice build up or other obstruction in the vent damper, see if u can manually open or close it. Some times when u have the settings set to the highest it closes off one area while allowing to much cold air flow to the other area!
THERMISTORS in the freezer and fridge section for continuity OHMS and for amount of OHMS current being put out. In most models around 1300 ( give or take 150 ohms) ohms is required


God is so good: so this is why I give free advice so please thank him not me.

Reset the alarm light on a hoover nextra frost free


na

you need to full defrost it doors open for a few days

this melts the ice monster behind the freezer compartment
you can access it from inside the compartment from a few screew

whats happened is the drain holes to the evaporator are blocked
so it will never go frost free
because the blast chiller section
where the fan is at the back on the freezer compartment isnt running and its drain hole is also blocked
you can use a pipe cleaner brush or something
and dress it will salt
youll find a tube goes from inside the chiller to the same evaporator tray usualy set above the compressor as its source of heat

so once you clear the tubes check the fan
clear the ice monster
check for any rubbish down the back of the unit
and clear it away
also the unit should be atleast 4" from the wall and with good ventilation

now fully clean turn it on close the door
wait twenty mins
open the freezer you should get rolling vapors from it
and you should also hear the fan running quietly

give this a try....

Display panel on fridge door display flashing from 4 to 7 and beeps 5 times.


the blast chiller fan has prob failed
also check the thermal fuse on the heating elements that are around the chiller elements {used to defrost the chiller section}
and if there is also one on the fan check it
the beeping is prob an error code
you can consult the manual or phone the makers support number
to get more info on the exact error detected
usually there is some reset error like hold in the button etc and power on then let it go
more any more appliances have this
and if you dont know to reset
even if the error is cleared the unit will remain in this error mode
till reset again check the manual

Tru mug chiller won't get cold


Is the compressor running? Is the condenser clean and the fan running? Is the fan inside running? Is there ice on the coil? Those are the first things I would check after I check to see that the plug has power and the temperature control is turned on.

Kitchen selectives rechargeable wine chiller bc-10r 8 minute chill


For the KITCHEN SELECTIVES WINE CHILLER...A box on ebay says: Put bottle inside, add ice to neck of bottle, add water, plug in and set timer for 10-20 minutes. It chills from 77* to 55*or 33* (can't read numbers clearly) in 10 minutes. Can also be used on other drinks and canned drinks. Can be used as an ice bucket as well to keep the opened bottle chilled.
I just bought one at Goodwill for $4 today and was looking for the instructions as well. Hope this helps! 8d55b92a-9870-497d-a9c6-7cda8d40c58a.jpg 11a83201-002b-4f0c-b811-810f4cf0046e.jpg

Fridge is making Ice and will dispense Ice. Fridge will not dispense water at the door.


. Check your water filter first . On some models , only the drinking water is filtered . I don't know which model you have therefore you'll have to check and see if your ice maker water supply is filtered or not . If it is not , that is probably a bad water filter you have . However , if it is , I would check the supply line from the chiller located in the refrigerator compartment usually on the lower right hand side at the back of the compartment . The problem could be a plugged supply line from the chiller to the water valve on the door .

No air flow in fridge compartment,rfeezer working but not as well as normal


you may have ice build up at the freezer section. kindly look at the back side of the freezer if you have ice build up.

if you do then you have problem with defrosting.

Ice maker does not stop working and overfills, then ice dispenser does not work and pushes door open.


Continuous ice production, too much ice in the bucket, ice cubes overflowing the bucket, ice cubes falling behind the bucket or ice lifting the chiller shelf can now be resolved by installing a redesigned feeler arm. The new arm is designed with a slight curve to cycle the icemaker “OFF“ before the cubes overflow the ice bucket. Order part number WR49X10103.
