Kelvinator fridge not cooling


Try defrosting the fridge. Check the cold plate at the back of the food compartment once the fridge has been defrosted and turned back on again. The cold plate in the freezer (around the walls) will be cold to touch as will the cold plate at the back of the fridge,

Freezer is working fine. Bottom Control for Crispers working fine. Upper section of fridge not getting cold.


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.

The thermostate switch on and off but the fridge is not cold. The Freezer works 100 percent


You are 60% solved... The thermostat controls the freezer. Cold air from the freezer is blown into the refrigerator to cool it. The fridge dual control electrically controls the freezer, but uses a simple air damper to control the freezer air into the fridge.

Look for:
Stuck damper, stopped air circulation fan, possible ice/frost blockage. The problem is in the airflow path between the freezer and the fridge side.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Princess series model FN66011S The refrigerator does not change temp.it remains warm...freezer does freeze. Is this a fixable problem?


HI!!

The little fan inside the freezer is the one in charge of blowing cold air into the fridge area, the freezer control (thermostat), regulates how cold it should get, and the Refrigerator control regulates how much of this cold air goes to the fridge compartment. It is important to keep the door gasket clean at all times in order to have a good thight seal.

Check:

1.- That the freezer and fridge controls are set correctly, acording to manufacturers specs. (a common problem arises when by accident, the temp. controls are moved out of preset adjusment.

2.- That the fan is working and sounds strong, (If you keep the freezer door open for a couple of minutes, you should hear and see the motor kiking in.)

3.- Find the vent(s) in the fridge compartment and feel if cold air is coming thru when fan is working. If fan is working and blows no air, Take the freezer's back panel off, (4 hexhead screws) just enough to see inside and check if the evaporator (radiator looking component) is covered with ice, blocking the flow of air towards the fridge compartment, if it is, your defrost thermostat and-or timer are defective.

Your temp control for the fridge when you first start it, should be a bit higher than the one for the freezer. (the freezer should be in the low-middle range.) This control is nothing but a actuator for a door that controls the flow of air from the freezer. The bigger the number, the wider the door opens, and the colder the fridge gets.

Once the system is stable, let's say the next day, you can re-adjust your controls, (don't expect an inmediate change right away, change one digit a the time and check again next day) If you set your fridge too high and the freezer too low, the freezer may loose coldness and the problem would invert.

Good Luck!!!

Fridge not working but freezer is ok fridge light works


There is probably an ice build up between the two sides of the appliance. There may also be a problem with the damper unit which controls the cold air coming from the freezer side to the fridge. The fridge is controlled by the freezer. Dependant on appliance. The door opens and closes letting the cold air go into the fridge and when the fridge is cold enough the door will close agin. This is not something that you will see happening it is normally concealed behing a diffuser.

Fridge part not working on Whirlpool Arc 7050 Fridge Freezer


If this is correct:

1. No ice build up on back of freezer wall.
2. Fan in freezer is working.
3. Items in freezer are frozen, ice cream is a good test.

Then:
Why is the cold air in the freezer not getting over to the Ref. side?

1. There is a channel (tunnel) from the freezer to the Ref, side and there is a door which regulates how much cold air from the freezer goes through to the Ref. side.

2. The control panel may have it labeled as "Freezer" setting, from cold to coldest. The coldest setting means the door is almost closed and will keep most of the cold air in the freezer.

3. Since your control panel is not working then this door must be almost closed keeping all or most of the cold air in the freezer.

Any service tech should be able to check the control panel and find the problem.
