Sounds like your condenser has failed. It may be cheaper to buy a new fridge than to replace that part. Wait for a sale. If you get a new one, make sure you periodically clean underneath of the unit to keep the coils on the new condenser clean. Use a bottle brush and a vacuum to do the job. It's easier than you think. Good luck!

GE( 2-door) ref portion door left open the whole night,it's not working now except the freezer. Tried unplugging it for 24 hrs, but still not working.


the air ducts could still have ice in them,remove the bottom kick panel,you should find a tech sheet either on the kick panel or taped in the cabinet area down there and it will tell you how to manually put your fridge into defrost, you don't want to work on it while it's running or you'll make it worse,you'll know it's in defrost when the compressor shuts down and the fan in the freezer stops blowing if you can't find it shut down the fridge or unplug it again,remove the food from the freezer,if you're handy remove the back inside wall of the freezer and with a hair dryer melt out any ice up in the vents and blow the air from the hair dryer up above the fan motor and in the corners, ,you'll see water dripping where the ice is,heat it up until no more water drips down,hit one side for a few minutes and then the other side for like 5 minutes at a time so you don't damage anything from heating it up to much,or if you have another fridge leave it unplugged for a couple of days.if you can't remove the wall blow the air into the air slots in the back wall panel,in the right and left side corners and then in the middle,have a light or flash light,you should be able to see water dripping down,keep blowing the air in until no more water is dripping,might take you like 30 to 45 minutes to do this,then turn it back on and see if you can feel cold air blowing into the fridge section,if not shut it down and heat it up again,if you see water dripping there's still ice in there,all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,the evap fan blows the cold air up nto the fridge section and the air returns to the freezer through the air ducts,when the door was open warm and cold air meet and forms ice in the air ducts,if the fan is working and depending on your model and next time you write send the model number you could have a damper it could of got damaged but it sounds like all you have is frozen air ducts

Why has my fridge stopped working but my freezer still works its Hotpoint mistral plus


Possible that there is block on the air passage from the freezer fan which can be due to frost or failure of the fan.You need to check if there is free flow from the fan, also the setting of the fridge temperature.

Refrigerator is not cold (50);freezer is working; vents not blocked. What can I do? Fan is working, & compressor does kick on.


Nine out of ten times it turns out to be a defrost issue. What most people dont understand is the refrigerator gets its cool air from the freezer. If the evaporator coil in the freezer becomes a block of ice then the airflow from freezer to fridge section is blocked. The block of ice along with already frozen foods in the freezer compartment help to keep those foods frozen. Therefore you assume the freezer section is fine. However, the lack of cool airflow to the fridge side quickly turns that 38 degree air into 50 degree air. You could try unplugging the fridge and leaving doors open for 24 hours, this will thatw the evap coil. Plug it back in after the 24 hours, and within 12-24 hrs everything should be cool. If the fridge continutes to cool for about 3-6 days and then fails again, you certainly have a defrost problem. This is long winded, but hope it helps

FRIDGE/FREEZER ON THE BLITZ?


Try removing everything out of your fridge, switch it off and open all doors for 12 hrs. Then close doors and switch it on for another 24 hrs before putting in you stuff. most likely the evaporator is iced up, you need to defrost if fully.

Freezer not blowing air - bad smell in fridge


Your automatic defroster coil is open and needs to be replaced along with the fan in the freezer that blows the cold air around and also blows air into refrigerator.

Bad smell down below is food rotting in that section because it is not cold enough.

Fridge and freezer not getting cold



  • You have 2 fans Make sure your top fan is working ,its located inside the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked.With out a fan you have no circulation .Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.

Frost Free, freezer ok but fridge warm


If all else fails I would completely defrosted the unit.If there is any blockage this will open up all the tubes.Unplug it open the doors put pans of hot water in the freezer to speed up the process.
Make sure your fan is still working ,its located behind the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refridgerater may be blocked.With out a fan you have no circulation but your freezer may look likes its working,it may last 3 days.Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.

Fridg not cold


your story is very odd but likely nobody is messing with the door switch hwen you moved , or the wires could have shorted out. normally, the door switch, when you open a door would switch on a cabinet light and turn off the blower. in your case, its the reverse, as you open a door, the blower runs and if you close the door, the blower stops. im not sure if you can figure out which pair is the normally close and which one is the normally open on the door switch in order to swap them or you may rplace the door switch.

Fridge too cold


There is a damper motor that is behind the vent where you feel the cold air coming out in the fridge section.  That damper should open and close after making temp. adjustments.  See if you can look in the vent and see if it is wide open.  Set your freezer on the coldest setting and check this vent again an hour or so later.  If it is still wide open then that damper motor is bad.  Let me know if you find something different or have any questions.
