When the compressor is running, two fans should be running. One inside the freezer compartment that moves air over the evaporator coils. The other is under/behind the fridge that cools the condenser coils.

If the fan on the condenser coil (the one under/behind the fridge) stops working, the system cannot dissipate the heat from those coils, and thus cannot sufficiently cool the inside of either the freezer nor fresh food compartment.

On mine, when the condenser fan failed, I noticed right away. The front face of the wall separating the compartments became very hot. Extremely hot.

Apparently the refrigeration system is designed so that waste heat keeps condensation from forming where the magnetic gaskets on the door need to seal. When the condenser fan failed, there was too much waste heat (because no heat was being dissipated from the condenser coils by the fan), thus making that gasket-sealing area very hot.

If it is your condenser coil fan, you can relieve the problem temporarily by removing the bottom back panel from the fridge and aiming a box fan (a regular room or window fan) at the condenser coils. This will circulate air over the coils, thus removing heat from the coils.

FRS26R4CB0-Freezer not freezing and Fridge not getting Cool


Hi Candi,

I don't know this model but most friges are the same,
Check on the bottom back, there should be a radiator with a small fan
installed.

If the fan is not working this maybe your problem,
It is not colling the gas.


You also may have a gas leak or the gas compressor is not working
or starting to work because of a faulty capcacitor.

If the fan motor on the outside unit is still coming on and the blower motor on the inside unit is still working properly, and your return air is not restricted (sometimes just a dirty filter), then your problem would be the charge in the unit. If over or under charged, the unit will freeze up, not just outside, but inside too. Have someone charge the unit with refrigerant and you should be okay. If any of the other problems exist, it will have to be looked into more. Hope this points you in the right direction. Good Luck!

Refrigerator not freezing


It appears that your thermostat setting is not correct. Please put it on HI cool and then check if the fridge is working OK . The problem could be due to leakage of gas. Please check this If both these fail then get your fridge checked up by a technician as there could be a internal problem. Most likely it is the above 2 problems.

Have a true ttp67 that freezes when turned on after 2-3 hours instead of cooling!


If it was off over night the fan comes on you should feel air coming from the inside vent the condensor fan may be bad or the blade is loose
If you feel air then it freezes it's a Classic example of low freon gas.

Hi my fridge freezes every thing even at it's


your thermostat is bad, what it does it sense the temperature set buy the control setting, once it goes bad it does not recognize the temperature hot or coold and the unit keep running and freezes everything. thermostat work like the therometer switch, when it reach certain temperature it cut off.

Inside unit freezing


There are varius items that make the unit inside (air handler) freezes up .If the fan motor in the air handler doesn't work it'llice up.If the filter is dirty it'llfreezes up. If the coil in the air handler is dirty it will freezes up.And if the unit is low in refrigerant(freon) it'll ice up.If is low in gas means there's a leak and before recharged it needs to be fixed.

Samsung RB2055Sl Top refrigerator couling coil freezing up every 2 or 3 weeks


The problem is freeze up. Bad door gasket or too much window shopping are the biggest issues. Could be low gas. Either take off the back freezer panel and defrost or unplug for 2 days to defrost fully. Oh, and clean the condenser coil. Then, let's see what the unit does.
