Usually when this happens it is because of a problem with the fan that moves cold air from the freezer section of your unit to the refrigerator section. Either the fan has gone bad or the unit has frosted up to the point of stopping the fan. Try defrosting (unplugging) the unit over night and then check it to see if the fan runs. If not then replace the fan. If it runs and then stopss after awhile like days or even a few weeks, then you may need a defrost timer.

No temp lights on fridge or frezer panel.light on in frezer not in fridge


Try cycling the power. Switch of the fridge at its isolator (or wall socket), leave for 1 minute and switch on again.

Consult your owner manual for guidance.

If still under warranty, contact your dealer.

Water dripping in fridge from below frezer


There is a drain tube that runs from the freezer/ evaporator compartment that allows ice melt water to drain from the defrosting cycle. Often times that drain hole will become clogged with food debris, glass from a broken heating element, paint chips from scaling and mildew, etc. When that drain hole gets clogged the water has no place to go except down into the fresh food compartment. Unplug the ref and remove the food and ice maker and racks. Remove the freezer back panel and look for a drain hole and clean it out. I use a wet/ dry vacuum at first and if the clog is deeper I will use compressed air to blow the line clear. You can also use a water hose with water pressure. Best done outside of the house.

The fridge is not working.the freezer is working.in the freezer the cold air is not coming in the fridge.


fridge basics

the fridge and freezer are seperate compartments they dont share air there is a chemical filled filiment on your fridge u can see it at the back looks like a big grill that chemical is pumped around both fridge and frezer that chemical carrys heat energy it removes the heat from the fridge and frezer to the radiator at the back this radiator gets verry hot whyle your fridge / frezer becomes cold it shuld be 1 compleate system with better fluid flow in the frezer to make it cool faster

ok so the frezer is working but fridge is not it could be a few things 1 fluid not geting round the fridge lack of fluid or 2 a blockage

im no expert but knowing the basic science of fridges is a help i hope this has helped but like i say im not farmiliar with any fridge and models deviate but the science stays the same hopefully this steers u in the right direction

Fridg is not cooling.frezer working real good.


Open the freezer compartment and listen for the fan motor if you don't hear it but you can hear the compressor running. youll need to first make sure that the door switch is working( If the lights go off when you press the button it should be okay). You'll need to remove the back panel and inspect the coils if frosted over evenly and the fan still is not working give the fan a little push. if it will not go, you need to see if it has voltage if so, replace the fan. If no check the defrost terminator which only on amanas will keep the fan off. In this case replace the defrost terminator(it look about like 5 quarters, with 2 wires clipped through the evaprator coils in back of freezer.

Frezer defroster runs to long


Good day,
If the machine has a mechanical timer, it is in the fresh food compartment behind the top front panel.
Normal defrost cycle is approx. 21 minutes.
If it has an adaptive(solid state) timer it is located in the same area, and on most models can be replaced with the mechanical model.

We need to check the defrost time inside the fresh food compartment. When you locate the timer you need to slowly turn clockwise until refrigerator goes into defrost. Leave it there for about 20 minutes. 1 minute after you turn timer open freezer door if the defrost is working now you will hear a crackling sound or slight glow caused by manual defrost. Do these things and the let me know. Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze seabreezehvac@yahoo.com

I have a Kenmore side by side fridge


check the freezer compartment at the back wall. see if there is frost build up at the back.
sounds like a fosted evaporator to me.

check also the evaporator fan in the freezer section if it is running.

if not, then there is your problem.
