The fridge side is not cooling well. It is cooler than room temp, but not cold. What could cause this problem?


In a side by side, the most likely failure for your type of problem is a failure in the drfrost ciruit (defrost heater, defrost thermostat and defrost timer) that allows an ice build up behind the inner back panel of the freezer. And then you also get an ice build up in the cooling tubes that is susposed to take cold air from the freezer compartment to the refregerator compartment.

The next likely item is the evaporator cooling fan that is located in the freezer compartment. If it is working then there is no cold air transfer. You should be able to feel the air flow in the refrigerator section if it is working.

The cooling normally comes from the freezer side, through cooling tubes. There should be a fan either blowing or sucking the air through these cooling tubes. So the first thing you should do is verify that the evaporator fan is turning and then see if you feel air flow in both compartments. If you have air flow in the freezer but not the refrigerator side, then the cooling tube must be blocked.

Most of the time the blockage is ice or frost, and you will need to open up the inner back panel of the freezer to get to the cooling tube. Look for an opening under the evaporator. Suggest a hair dryer to defrost the tube.

Ref side not getting cold, freezer still cold


Hi, Is the Freezer still cold? If so either the Fan (In back of freezer-Remove rear panel) is not working or the vent between freezer and fridge is close (side panel between freezer and fridge) Check either of those should be able to pick which is not working

Not cooling properly. dismounting the front panel showed formation of ice on ac tubes


ice forming on the evaporator coil (you called it ac tubes) is a common sign of 'low' air flow across the coil.

The evaporator coil will 'ice' if the air flow is restricted.

This usually happens when the filter and or coil becomes dirty.

If the filter is changed often (when dirty) then the chances of the coil becoming dirty are reduced.

In any event - you must have a 'clean' filter and a clean coil.

The filter is usually made to be 'washed out,' and the coil can be cleaned with a wrag - or brush of some sort.

The goal is to make sure the filter and coil are both clean.

Other things can cause a coil to 'ice,' but are less likely.

a) low on refrigerant - not likely because the system is 'sealed' and the chances of losing gas are remote unless it's an older AC and has been 'opened' in the past - which improves the chances of a leak.

b) a problem with the fan motor - i.e. cutting off and then back on - or - not running as fast (both will reduce the air flow) as it should because of internal problems.

c) in a room with a 'low' load - i.e. the outside temp is low and the room is cool - thus causing a low load situation. This too is not likely as most AC's are being run because it's hot in the room.

Bottom line - is I would make sure my filter and evaporator coil are both clean and unrestricted.

good luck!

This could be caused by a low refrigerant charge or dirty filters restricting the airflow. Also it will happen if the indoor fan isn't running.

1.5T Voltas Vetris window AC. Ice formation


I think the more likely problem is that the unit is slightly short of gas\ refrigerant, which is a common cause of icing up evaporator coils and this sound you describe. First check that the air filter is clean. Another cause could be the defrost sensor is faulty, but I would think not. Some ice isn't actually a bad thing, but quite common as long as it doesn't form over too much of the coil, or get too thick.

Refrigerator side stops cooling


Drain stopped up.
Take out the bottom drawer in the freezer, look at the back wall and you should get a partial view of the bottom of the cooling coils. Directly below these coils is the drain area. You may need a light to see the drain hole. If this area is covered with ice then a hair dryer will help clear this so you can see the drain hole.
I have some O2 tubing that I put down the drain to clear any cloggs. Also, I seal the top of the drain hole around the O2 tubing with tape and use the air from my lungs to clear the drain tube. Pour a little water down this drain hole to make sure it’s clear.
