    Is the compressor fan motor running? Is the evaporator fan motor in the freezer running? Is there a ice buildup in the freezer? Is thera clicking sound coming from the compressor?

Fisher and packel active smart is beeping when door is closed and is now defrosting the freezer and freezing foods at back of fridge... How do I fix this?


It is evidently not out of refrigerant then. It will beep at you to advise that it was set to bottle chill and time is up, or that either door was left a bit open.

Also make sure the slot at the upper back of the fridge compartment is not blocked with items. That has to be left clear as it is where the cold air comes out to circulate.

Try turning it off for 30 min and then back on.

If the condition persists you will have to call F&P service. Take note of just when it beeps and the exact number of beeps. They may want to know this.

Hotpoint frost free fridge freezer the fridge not working but freezer is


Hi Reginald

Most refrigerator / freezer units chill the fridge area by venting some fraction of the very cold air from the freezer into the fridge compartment through a channel that has a mechanical air valve in it. In this way, it can control the chilled air flow, and aim for the set temperature, all the way down, in some cases, to freezing, or even colder, on the fridge side.

That vent unit, depending on your model, sill be somewhere in the wall that separates the freezer from the fridge. What can happen is that moisture condenses into the louver that slides to control the airflow, it freezes, and then system is stuck, since it's cold on the freezer side, and this keeps the louver frozen stuck. If that is the case, shutting the unit off for a while may recover function, though getting it to where ice is melting in an interior wall may be more risk of food spoilage than you'd want. Otherwise, use a search engine to look for 'how to test freezer / refrigerator vent in make/model', and you'll likely come across all sorts of youtube and step-by-step tutorials.

Good Luck!

My freezer and fridge are warm even though the power is still coming through why is this? !


Sounds like 1 of 4 possible scenarios depending on the fridge.
  1. evaporator fan out (in freezer section)
  2. bad compressor
  3. bad main board
  4. loss of freon from sealed system.
You should probably call an appliance repair company to diagnose exactly what the problem is.

Recommended temp settings for freezer and fridge


The ideal freezer temperature is 0 to 5 degrees and the fridge section from 36 to 40 degrees. However, you will get more accurate responses if you leave the model number of your exact unit.

I have a hole in the freezer coil due to my stupidity. Can the freezer compartment be replaced and freon put back or is it cheaper to just replace the fridge? Bill


Hi,
Yes, they can be fixed, but it is usually cheaper to just replace the whole unit...and... often after getting them fixed you will still have problems...
So I would just replace the fridge...

Also... FYI... I have seen this many times here...you are not alone... :-)

Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed

The freezer is cold, but the fridge stays around 40 degrees, and the unit keeps running continuously


The evaporator fan motor may be about to seize and is running to slowly to cool the fridge, cost about ($30).

Check to be sure you can get a replacement fan first, they last about 4 - 5 years. Available from a parts supplier or electric motor company.
Unplug fridge. Located usually in top of freezer behind a vented cover plate. Remove cover, remove screws holding fan in, may have to cut wires. Replace with new motor, make sure the fan spins the same direction (CW OR CCW) as your old one, if you don't know which way it should spin then be sure it pushes air into the freezer area and doesn't spin backward drawing air from the freezer area.

Any info on electrolux RA1300 gas fridge. Freezer works well but fridge compartment doesn't chill


If you had an electric fridge the problem is usually the evaporator fan motor ($30).
I suspect that you may have the same problem. Generally, freezers are cooled only, when the fridge needs cooling, the evaporator fan comes on and blows cold air from the freezer to the fridge compartment. The advice below is for an electric fridge but may also work for you, it's worth a try I suppose.

Unplug fridge, or disconnect gas etc. Fan should be located usually in top of freezer behind a vented cover plate. Remove cover, remove screws holding fan in, may have to cut wires. Replace with new motor, make sure the fan spins the same direction (CW OR CCW) as your old one, if you don't know which way it should spin then be sure it pushes air into the freezer area and doesn't spin backward drawing air from the freezer area.
