My frige & freezer do not cool at all,lights & freezer fan work,compressor & coil fan do not


Hello Friend, this is Z. Thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Based on the symptoms you are describing, it sounds like your refrigerator could have floating restriction in the line or something more complicated like an issue with the sealed system that only a professional can repair. This can include the compressor not working, the evaporator fan not turning, or even coolant in the lines at incorrect levels to properly cool. It is typically normal to hear the compressor running, humming, or even to be a little warm. However, if you do not hear the compressor at all, I suggest cleaning your refrigerator out including the coils you can reach (typically located in the bottom behind the toe grille) and make sure no food items are blocking any vents in your appliance. Also try checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and the door. Now close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing. If any of these suggestions prove to be ineffective, connect with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues. Best! - Chris

GE Artica PSS25NGMD Side by Side stopped cooling


Unplug the unit and pull the relay off the compressor and shake it to see if it rattles. If it does, the relay is bad and will need to be replaced. Here is that part to order.
Here is the overload relay that should be replaced also.
Is you pull the relay and it does not rattle, post back the results to me.
Here is a video to help you out.

Top freezer working fine refrigerator part not cooling we've cleaned the coils


Did you check for an ice build up behind the rear panel in your freezer? It sounds like your defrost system is not working and allowing ice and frost build up that is blocking the cooling tubes to the refrigerator.

But also make sure that the evaporator fan in functional so that it forces the cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator through the cooling tubes.

You have a refrigerant leak. Your coil in the freezer should be frosted. You're looking at 600 dollars minumum for repair.

My freezer is working but fridge has stopped any ideas in what could be wrong. The coils where dirty I have cleaned them..


Does this unit just have one thermostat? is this a frost free unit? does the cooling for the fridge come from the freezer side compartment via internal fans, if so are they working?

well done on cleaning the coils by the way, did you notice the fans down there running and latent heat being dispersed? (FROM COIL)

Can't find refrigerator coils/ cooling issues


There're two coils ,the condenser coil wich you already clean (also make sure the condensing fan motor works properly and the fan blades are also clean).The other is the evaporator coil wich is located inside the freezer behind the back wall cover.

Generally speaking if the refrigerator does not cool and you have frost on the back wall of the freezer it suggests a defrost problem.
However since the refrigerator started working by itself it would point to an air circulation problem from the fan in the freezer compartment failing to operate. The frost on the back wall without the fan operating would cause frost buildup because the heat is still trying to get to the coil through the back wall. If your refrigerator freezer has a door fan light switch something holding the door partly open would cause the fan not to operate. Look for a button or toggle and manually push it in. You should hear the fan turn on and the light will go off.

Refrigerator stopped working, freezer works fine


Sounds like the evap fan is not running. The fan takes cold air from the freezer to cool the refer compartment. If the freezer is cold the compressor is running. Generally the freezer will stay cold since the cooling coils are there but it must have the fan working to get the air up to the refer area. Pull everything out the freezer and take the back panel off to view the coils and fan, etc. It's a simple easy job to change the fan. If you find the coils are a total block of ice then it's another problem... the defrost cycle isn't working. Sooo... see if the fan is running in the freezer compartment first. See http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/AA43-57.gif for fan location, item 18 is the fan motor. Let us know what you find out.
