You will need to begin by unplugging and removal of the rear panel in back of thr freezer. Defrost with a hair dryer until coils are clear and examine the defrost heater part number WR51X10055 below the evaporator coils. If burned out it will be easy to see because the heater has a glass tube covering ther heating element inside. If you need to change the defrost heater I recommend that you also replace the defrost thermostat part number WR50X10054. Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Refrigerator Not Making Ice, Frost in Freezer and Refrigerator Not Cold

It has a defrost problem.  Most likely cause would be the defrost thermostat which clips onto the evaporator behind the back panel in the freezer.  Next most common would be the defrost timer.  Third would be the defrost heater.  Let me know if you want to try to test these parts.  If so I will need the entire model # from the sticker in the fridge or on older models on a plate at the bottom front below the door.

SOURCE: Water collecting in refrigerator and ice collecting in freezer

sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you access to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somewhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wire around the heater( black heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now every time the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

SOURCE: Side by side Sub Zero not cold enough.

How old is "OLDER" ? If there is no frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer you could have one of two problems. On older units the compressor wears out with years of service and no longer pumps efficiently. Or it could possibly be low on refrigerant charge. ether one of these two problems is a sign that is time to update to new unit.

If you have frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer section you then would have a problem in the defrost circuit attributed to the timer, defrost heaters or defrost thermostat.

The codensor fan is not running. I have the same problem. I had the fan replaced a year ago for the same problem, so I can't tbelieve it's the fan. I am guessing something on the circuit board is not letting the fan kick on. I don't have a definite answer yet, but the fan not running is the main issue you are having.

Why is refrigerator not cooling but freezer works


The freezer shares the cold with the refrigerator .When the coils get iced or the fan does not work, no cold air gets to the refrigerator. Check the fan and see if you can hear it and if not replace it. Check for ice on the coils and if there is ice, replace the defrost timer.

Amana SCD25tw side by side. Ice cream very soft, freezer blows semi cold air NOT ice cold. refigerator side seemes ok. I checked coil and it is NOT icy.


If the coil is not iced up then it is not a defrost problem but rather if the coils are not completely cold all over then the compressor is failing or the refrigerant has leaked out.

My bottom refrigerator is not cold. The freezer is okay.


Check to make sure the fan in the freezer compartment is working and not blocked. This delivers the cold air to the refrigerator. The fan should run every time the freezer calls for cold.

Ice build up on coil inside freezer


it can be two things the refrgerator probably has a small refrigerant leak therefore it ices up, or the defrosting heater on the begining of the coil is faulty.
