Is it a dual compressor system? Is there a separate thermostat / controller for the freezer?

SOURCE: Zanussi fridge freezer - fridge not working

The defrost cycle is not happening like it should, that's what causes the block of ice (and poor air flow). If you have all that defrosted look at the defrost bi-metal, it usually is a small round disk with a couple wires coming out of it and it's clipped on the coils. When it's cold enough, it passes electricity to the heat elements, when it gets hot enough it "opens" and kills power to the heat elements. If that is bad (swollen cracked or bloated) and not passing electricity to the elements that's the problem. Another item would be the defrost timer itself, if it doesn't work (no clock motor turning) then it will never go into defrost. And the last and usually least expected failure would be the heat element themselves not working

SOURCE: my amana bottom freezer won't cool both the fridge and freezer are warm

Ice build-up inside refrigerator and cycling switch not functioning. Requires technician to take apart inside of refrigerator, clear ice and replace switch. Took my repair man about half hour to fix.

SOURCE: kenmore model 596.72253201. Bottom freezer works, fridge does not

The most likely reason is part number 12566102 Adaptive Defrost control board. The next likely are the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat,Sea Breeze I will send you photos. below

SOURCE: kenmore fridge. freezer top works, but bottom doesn't.

Either your fan has stopped working, or it is not defrosting. Take the back panel of the freezer off and see if the evaporator coil is iced over, if it is replace the deforst heater, and the deforst thermostat. If the compressor is running the fan if the freezer should be running. Also make sure both your fridge and freezer controls are centered. Putting the freezer on the coldest setting acutally shuts off airflow to the fridge.

We have a model MBF1956KEB the freezer works but not the fridge


sounds like you have a bad damper,if you go here and look at part number 13 you can see it

it's broke in the closed position so no cold air can get blown over from the freezer and into the fridge section,open the freezer door and make sure you hear the fan blowing,also check around the freezer door and ceiling of the freezer and make sure there isn't any ice,common problem with bottom mount freezers is the door can get left open,warm air gets sucked into the freezer and ice forms in the air ducts,if all looks good i would say you have a bad damper,one more thing,remove the bottom kick panel there should be a tech sheet either folded up in the panel or taped on the cabinet wall down there,it will tell you how to do a diagnostics check to check all the parts like the damper,this way you know what part is bad.hope this helps you out and good luck.

No light in refer but works in freezer


Check the door switch to see if is working and try another light bulb or try the light bulb somewhere else to see if the light bulb is good. Check to if vent holes coming from the feezer are blocked by something in the fridge. This will make it feel like your fridge is not working.

My fridge in my fridge freezer keeps freezing everything in it.


If the fridge side is frozen you have a door seal issue.
If the freezer side is frozen you have a defrost component issue.
Your post was not clear as to which side is frozen.

Touch Temp Controls


If the touch control doesn't respond then it's most likely bad. They don't normally act up, they either work or they don't.
