    your very welcome, if this should happen again you might want to call a service tech to install a "return air duct heater" this will stop the duct from freezing

the notorious Adaptive defrost did it again (lol) verify the condition of the heater putting a voltmeter on the "beeping" feature if it beeps its good.

SOURCE: MAGIC CHEF CTF1920ARA - Freezer works, Refrig. portion does not.

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

SOURCE: Freezer not freezing, frig not cooling

I had a problem with a side by side fridge once, not getting cold on either side.

Turned out to be the compressor....so, that might be your problem too.

There is also a possibility that it could be the thermostat, most parts can be ordered on line, and delivered right to your door. Sometimes a repair guy will come to your house and install, it saves you money, because some of the parts have about a 300 percent markup when brought to your home from a repair shop.

Good luck!!

SOURCE: line and air flow box between freezer and frig

If the fan is running in the freezer compartment, temperatiure is normal, and no frost is building up on the back panel in the freezer panel, then there is a good chance the return air shutes in the fresh food compartment are blocked with ice. The return ducting is just as important as the the supply shute which you melted out. Difficult if not impossible to see.
My recomendation is to empty, unplug and air dry the whole machine preferably with a fan blowing air into the fresh food compartment.
Haste makes waste with this machine. Using heat can cause the plastic shutes to melt and distort.
Should be defrosted in this manner for 24 hours.
Restart and give the machine 24 hours to recover. Common problem with Whirlpool products.
P.S. Check to see if lights go out when closing fridge door. In fact this should be your first step. Jack

Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.


If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…


Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

My refrigerator stopped cooling and my freezer stopped freezing but the freezer is still cooling


Same thing with our GE Eterna Series - off and on for the last two weeks. Took back panel off, looked around, vacuumed dust build up off of the fan blades, etc.; everything worked fine for five good days. Then frig went out stopped cooling. Off and on for the last week. Unplugging it works for a day then back to not freezing and or colling.

If the freezer is staying cold it sounds like a defrost system problem. A bad timer, heater or thermostat can cause frost to build up on the coils and block air flow to the refrig side. Check out ACMEHowTo.com for troubleshooting the defroster problem.
There is a small duct between the freezer and refrigerator side if this is blocked the frig side won't cool.

I have a Domestic 2804 frig in my RV, The freezer works great but the frig part will not cool at all, can you help


All cooling takes place in the freezer. The refrig/fresh food side is a parasite, depending on cold air circulation from the freezer side. The fan in the freezer provides that circulation, and usually the freezer control setting determines how much air is moved into the refrig side.
If the fan is up to speed and the both controls are set in a middle position, the refrig side should be fine. if the problem continues, replace evaporator fan motor or clear the blockage preventing circulation (usually frost build-up from a defective defrost system part or blocked defrost drain).
