This fan problem is very hard to detect. What happens is as the DC motor for the fan wears out the RPM's are effected. Itgives the illusion that it is running fine, but it doen't have enough force to supply air circulation for both the freezer and the refrigerator. The parts cost is about $90.00 if you do the swap out yourself.

My Hotpoint Fridge/Freezer only works with the freezer at the bottom and the fridge is fed from the freezer via ducting to the fridge at the top ---- can anyone tell me why the freezer works perfectly and...


There has to be something restricting the air flow to the fridge. If the fan is running blowing cold air into the freezer, then it should be cooling the fridge too. Empty out the fridge and freezer and use a blow drier to blow hot air into the duct work. There could be an ice blockage not visible in the duct work.

Westinghouse freestyle fridge &freezer work but warm after being turned off fo 90 days


What happens in that 72 hours is the evaporator coil get's so much frost built up on it that the fan in the evap. freezer fan has no where to circulate the cold air (where the cold is produced). Basically you have a restriction between freez/fridg. sections you have defrost problem> It is one of three things d heater,d t stat, or your d timer.I need the model # to tell you what my sugestions would be and where to start.

My refrigerator stopped getting cold, but the freezer side still works


There should be a vent with a fan between the freezer side and the fridge side. Make sure the vent is fully open and fan running ok

My Jenn-air *** has all but quit producing cold although the freezer is still working fine. So is the light on the *** side.......any ideas.....would it be the thermostat? My husband is out of state and I...


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

Whirlpool side by side freezer not working fridge is fine


Pull out the fridge and unplug. Remove the back cover. Clean the condenser coils and fan. If they're difficult to get to, use compressed air to blow out. (you can get a can from walmart). That should fix the problem. If that doesn't work, then write back.

My freezer works perfect but everything in the refrigerator doesn't get cold enough. My milk sours. My fridge is an inglis and supposedly brand new


Warm fridge cold freezer problem fixed
In the freezer section there was a one screw removable panel which housed a four bladed rotary fan. One blade had broken off adn was jamming the fan from rotating. Once the broken part was removed the fan was free to rotate, but out of balance, but it did get the fridge going again. It took about one minute to replace the fan once a spare was aquired. Now I understand how it works, if one side of your fridge freezer is not working it can only be the air movement or lack of it Robert

THE MAIN FRIDGE IS NOT WORKING, THE TEMPERATURE SEEMS TO BE VERY WARM. THE LIGHT INSIDE THE FRIDGE IS WORKING OK AND SO IS THE SOUNDER WHEN THE DOOR IS LEFT OPEN.


Listen for the fan that is in the freezer section. The fridge part relies on the freezer fan to get it's cold air. Only the freezer section gets cold...the fan in the freezer blows cold air through ducting to the fridge to get it cool. Either the fan is bad or the air ducting to the fridge is restricted by ice. If the airway is restricted by ice then your defrost timer is bad. Good luck.

Refrigerator does not work but the freezer works fine!


most fridges are cooled by the freezer. There is usually a fan in the freezer section that blows cold air in the fridge section vial some duct work. I expect that the fan has failed or that the air passage is blocked. look inside the fridge, near the very top on the side next to the freezer. You should see a vent/grill.
