    The average fridge now only lasts around 6-8 yrs if you're lucky, more than likely its out of refrigerant, and wasting electricity. replace it if possible.

The overload/relay is probably burnt out . This is the piece which plugs onto the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires going to it . It is easily replaceable , and not near as expensive as a new refrig .

Fridge warm and freeze cold


Rachael, I recently had a similar issue. Unfortunately, the problem you describe could be related to several components & sensors that could have failed which cause similar symptoms. There are a few things that you will need to start with in order to best lead you in the best direction for repair. First, ice building up says that there may be a problem with the auto defrost cycle. Usually a sensor that sits on the evaporator in the freezer side. You want to start with actually measuring the temp in the freezer and the fridge. If you can, remove items, turn fridge off & then unplug fridge from outlet. Let sit overnight with doors open. Two goals, here. One, ensuring that any ice that has formed in the air passages has a chance to melt completely. Second, unplugging the fridge helps "reset" the control module. You stated "hearing the motor" working. Do you mean the compressor or the fan in the fridge. IMPORTANT, you need to make sure that when the fridge is "running" that you can feel air blowing in the freezer & fridge section. Do this before turning off & unplugging. Lastly for now, did anything out of the ordinary happen before you noticed improper operation?

Fridge warm, freezer has frost on back panel & is defrosting, fans work, just changed defrost thermostat, no air is moving from freezer side to fridge side, drain pan under fridge is dry


this fan needs to run when the compressor runs,check fan blade for being jammed by ice if you have this much ice on back wall as ice will stall motor,if no fan there will be no cool air to refrige compartment also the defrost drain tray will fill with water then freeze over which in turn floods the freezer floor and refrige compartments cause it cannot drain to the pan in the bottom

Fridge light comes on & sound but not cold


The freezer fan motor may be bad. The main back panel in the freezer can be removed to check it out. Spin the motor wiht your finger to see if it tries to run. If it does then it is shot.

What can I do to solve it?


Hi,

If the system does not get cold at all and you do hear the motor, then you should look for a gas leak. make sure the motor doesn't run for long. It could also be the the motor has sized. This will result in hearing the motor but the unit does not pump any gas.
Call a refrigeration tech and let him have a look. Make sure that the controlling part of the fridge/freezer is also working

Freezer works, fridge doesn't cool


Probably excessive ice in the condensor. Likely defrost thermostat or defrost heater problem.

What happens is excessive ice keeps airflow from the refrigerator part of the unit.

Ice maker stopped working, plus fridge not cold, but freezer o.k.


I would check that fan motor in the freezer section is running. it distributes cold air from freezer into refrig section also if this motor is running the top portion of freezer will not get cold enough to allow ice production. the motor is easy to repl and is mod# specific you should be able to buy one online.

Side by side freezer works fine ice cold.fridge not so good. only at 57 degrees


Listen for the fan motor to run. Open the freezer\ push the door switch with your finger \ listen for the fan that blows the cold air to the fridge. only the freezer side gets cold...fan blows cold to the fridge side. If the defrost timer has broken then ice may be blocking the flow of cold air to the fridge also. Only 2 things to check. Good Luck
