Is the compressor running?? If its hot but not running , humming and clicking sound you may have just a bad compressor relay. Or a bad compressor.
If your compressor is runing you have lost your freon.Leak or hole in system.

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.

It is still cooling but was making a loud sound unplugged it over night now it seems to be working again, what made sound and will it come back


Good day,
Motors make noise. There are three motors. One behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment.
Another in the back rear of the machine, called a condenser cooling, fan motor, and lastley, the compresssor itself which is locacated in he bottom rear as well.
One reason could be ice building up around the freezer fan motor and hitting the blades of the fan.
If it is a Whirlpool/Kenmore make then that fan motor could be going bad.
But without a make and complete model number that's all the info I can provide.
As well, we'll need to know how long it takes to re-appear, and if it is constant or intermitent noise problem.

  • Beside Compressor Door On Right End
  • Near Rear Of Cabinet

Refrigerator does not cool


If the refrigerator cooling is poor, it may be a problem with the thermostat, the compressor, or the evaporator fan. If ice is accumulating at the back of the fridge, that can also be a reason for poor cooling.

See aso the links below for a more detailed explanation:

It's not cool

Top refrigerator section will not cool


Check the evaporator fan , freezer must have a fan to avoid ice formation, if evaporator does not work, thermic sensor jams up and freezer stop working. The fan is located behind the panel in the freezer.

Check the back of your freezer, If there is frost or ice, then the unit is not defrosting.
This is often caused by problems with evaporator system.
Sometimes you also need to check the defrost timer, located at the top of the FFC on the Top freezer.
Check also the defrost thermostat, which is on the evaporator inside the freezer.
If it isnt defrosting, change both.
