Hi there,

Even if evaporator coil works fine , the defrost system can still be faulty. Ensure that the evaporator fan is starting, or you may have a faulty defrost thermostat or a faulty evaporator fan motor.
If the problem is not the defrost system, then check fridge thermostat.
Also the condenser coil at the back of the fridge must be checked, dust accumulating on condenser coils, and poor air ventilation can reduce cooling.
If the problem is none of the above, then there may be a problem with the refrigerant level or the compressor.
You can find out if the problem is the defrost system by tripping the circuit breaker, and leaving the unit with no power for one day, so to defrost it completely.
If the defrost system is faulty, then the fridge will be cooling regularly at start, and you will get the problem back after few days.

Regards.

Got a hotpoint ffa97, freezer was still cold and no alarm had gone off to say that that there had been a power cut yet the fridge temp had risen enough to curdle milk??\r\ntemp gauge was still showing...


Milk can sometimes curdle in a working fridge. But it does sound like your defrost system may be malfunctioning. Can you empty your freezer and inspect the defrost system behind the air circulator fan?

I know that defrost elements sometimes go bad and the controllers can pop too. You should check your operators manual and see how to put the fridge into manual defrost. *(it usually involves turning the fridge light on and off by hand. See if the freezer drains during manual defrost. If you have lots of food that dries out in a frost free unit the moisture contains a lot of contaminants that can plug the defrost drain. Which leads to a blocked air passage between the freezer and fridge sides.

You might want to get a small backup fridge for a while to run this down.
Or just use up the food in your fridge before running the tests.

Good luck and be careful.

Fridge not cooling! But the Fan and light is working! HELP!!


Sounds like you have caused a leak in the sealed system and the coolant is no longer inside it. You will need a professional to fix this.

Fridge wont get cold and freezer gets cold then gets warm


Sounds like to me you have a defrost issue. If your fridge is only 2 months old don't sweat it and call out a Whirlpool warrenty certified tech. to fix the problem. And sorry to say age does not matter with fridges any more. The good ole days of fridges lasting 20 years is over now it's 12 years if your lucky.

Fridge temp high


freon and a compressor is about as easy as it gets....Loss of freon will cause erratic cooling...also if you can feel it touch the compressor after it shuts off if if feels like its really hot ....bad compressor that kicks an internal breaker....bad news then time for new one also only a airconditioner man can put freon in no 12 . but freon will stay for 50 to 80 years for i tested some old fridges and still cool fine.
