Subzero 550 freezer making loud noise if top wire shelf closed


When you shut your top wire shelf you do a few things. First of all you activate your fan. Your fan sits in back of a large evaporator coil which is prone to defrost issues. I would imagine your fan is hitting ice due to a defrost issue. You may want to check your defrost system out. Ie your defrost timer.
or alternatively your fan could be getting old and needs replacing, it could just be making noise.

Whirlpool refrig center section hot


Heat between the doors is normal, It can be a bit concerning but don't worry about it.
The fans do wear out on fridges and can be replaced if the noise bothers you. As long as the fan is still turning it won't affect the operation.

Kenmore 18tfa top freezer refrig model # 72852101 freezer works, no cool air going into the refrig part. Ice machine works fine too. fan is on.


Possible fan not blowing the air into the fresh food compartment or your freezer could be frosted up. Need more input.

Refrig compartment does not cool on my new Kemore Frig.


Check and make sure the fan in the freezer is running. if not possible bad fan. If fan is running, check to see if you have any ice built up on back freezer wall. Normally frost type ice. If so, you may possibly have a bad defrost bi-metal mounted in the freezer section. Next could be a defrost timer control. Model number usally will help more in getting it right.

Noises in freezer area of refrigerator


Some refrigerators have a small plastic fan under the bottom shelf of the freezer that circulates air. It's not too unusual for a heavily loaded shelf to rub the fan blades making the noise you describe. If you empty the freezer, you'll fin a few screws holding the bottom shelf in. remove the shelf and inspect the fan and surrounding parts for signs of rubbing. Also tug on the fan blade lightly to see if it is still attached to the motor's shaft securely. New fan blades can be purchased at a good appliance repair shop. Good Luck

Kenmore top freezer fridge does not cool but freezer works


Turned refrigerator off for 8 hours, let the frost melt and the fan in the freezer worked again. The compressor now only has a soft clunk when it goes off.

Kenmore refrig not making ice and top shelf area in refrig not cold


if you are having tempurature issues make sure the fan in the freezer is operating. it should be on when the compresor is running. this may explain both warm fridge and no ice.

Kenmore top freezer unit-refrig not cooling past 50degrees


check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing, check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting, you can try turning that to Warmer freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.
