Re: Troubleshoot fridge repair

Your description is a little hard to understand, but sounds like an evaporator fan is not working. Its the one inside the freezer half. Its not visible, but there are vents that air can be felt by if its working. Or remove the panel covering it to see.

FRS26R4CB0-Freezer not freezing and Fridge not getting Cool

Hi Candi,

I don't know this model but most friges are the same,
Check on the bottom back, there should be a radiator with a small fan

If the fan is not working this maybe your problem,
It is not colling the gas.

You also may have a gas leak or the gas compressor is not working
or starting to work because of a faulty capcacitor.

Samsung fridge freezer

there is a shaft from freezer to fridge that the cold air travels. make sure that is unblocked. also make sure the fan is working. then see if the freezer coils are iced up (this restricts air flow). if they are, unplug it, empty the fridge and freezer, defrost the coils, dry it out, plug it in and turn it on (not high). once it reaches the temp and the compressor stops, fill the fridge again.

Candy CPCA250 GB Freezer feezing but fridge not cold

Hello jonnyclewlow

You said, you recently had a problem with my Candy fridge freezer (it defrosted overnight and wasnt cooling at all) and a repair shop diagnosed a thermostat problem. I have replaced the thermostat, Now the freezer freezes without any problems but the fridge does not go cold at all.
Also the compressor is running constantly

This is my first thought

Fresh Food temperature is
too warm. Freezer
temperature is satisfactory.

1. Fresh Food control is set too
2. Set fresh food control to a colder setting. Allow 24
hours for temperature to stabilize.

3.Then see if you do not have your freezer articles packed full up to the top, or covering the cold air vents usually found in the rear of the freezer compartment.

The fridge and the freezer share the cold air so the air must not be restricted from travel form the freezer to the fridge and back!
This would also cause the compressor to run none stop trying to cool the fridge!
So check your air vents in the freezer.
I'll bet you did not know they were there !
Most of us never notice!
Hope this works for you.
Please let me know that one of these solutions worked for you!
or if you have any questions.
Thank You, huuum

Kenmore fidge not getting cold

transporting fridge items on the side mixes up the oil and the gas together, inside the compressor bottle at the back, this should never be mixed, when you move fridge appliances you should always stand appliance where it is going to be for 24 hours before switching back on to allow the gas and oil to settle and separate back apart again. many engineers may tell you this does not matter and you can lay items down etc, this is absolute bull and must not be done as for allowing it to stand 24 hours, the opinion is mixed, but common sense tell you, if you move something, let it settle afterwards, and the longer you give it to do so the better OBVIOUSLY sorry there is no diy repair
