You do not hear the fan ? your evaporator fan is not working - shut off everything and remove freezer panel look for any excess ice or frust blocking the fan - if everything is clear try spinning the fan blades with your hands, is there any resistence or it spins freely ? Put back cover and turn it on - if fan fails to spin then you have to get it serviced and change the evap fan motor assembly or check the control board.
your unit won't cool if the fan is not working or working erratically.

If you open the freezer door , and press in the light switch , and not hear the fan motor , then the most common cause , is a bad main control board . Pt # WR55X10656 . This is the control board located on the back of the refrig , behind an 8"X10" panel . There is a resistor that burns on the board , causing the fan to stop . This board , controls every operation of the refrig .

Frezzer is freezing properly but refridgorator is not cooling

I had the same problem a month ago on my Hotpoint side/side. The fan was not operating which allows the blowing of cool air into the fridge portion. Open your freezer and listen for the blower. You may just need to hit it gently to get it going. Also, if your freezer needs to be defrosted that impacts the blowing capability.

I had to call a repair person to replace the board where the fan was located since it went bad. I hope this helps you.

Refrigerator is not cooling on top part of freg side only the bottom part is cool. The frezzer is working fine.

You may have a circulation problem. Check the the vent, if it's a side by side, inside refrigerator, on top towards back and feel for airflow. If there is no airflow from freezer into the refrigerator then you may have a evaporator fan that went bad or else you have a defrost problem - evaporator is clogged with frost which inhibits air flow.

Have a mtf2193arw fan in frezzer is working; refrig is not cooling the fan did fall of the spinner and was put back on; ice maker is slow; back and underneath have been cleaned; maytag top freezer unit

Unless the plastic opening is cracked in cente, try placing some adhesive on opening and slide it back on the evaporator motor shaft. If needed the part number for fan is 63002045

Kenmore 596.72913200 Refrigerator is Warm,and freezer is not freezing

If your evaporator is still frozen over after turning the screw twice you problem is in the heater circuit. Defrost heater could be open or the defrost thermostat.
