Question about Refrigerators
Trying to troubleshoot the problem. still some air flow coming
through the vents, very light, but not cold at all. what's the
most likely reason? i'm handy enough to be able to change out
parts but need help pinpointing where to start.
other symptoms: a motor kicks on and hums for a few seconds and then turns off.
I had the same problem with my Fridgedare Refrigerator. The compressor would kick on then kick right off. It ended up bein the relay for the compressor. I was lucky, this was the first time I had purchased one of those extended warranty palns so it was covered at no charge.

Over time debris, ice or food particles can get stuck or lodged into the vents. If the vents are blocked cold air is unable to properly flow through the unit. Cleaning the vents will cause the cool air to circulate throughout the unit once more. Check the vent to be sure there is no ice that needs to be melted. Defrosting the unit with a blow dryer for faster results may solve your problem. Another place to check is the refrigerator seals. Seals are what keep the appliances door closed. Cracks in the seal will result in a loss of cool air. This causes the unit to run continuously, which can ultimately lead the complete unit to shut down. It can also be the reason the temperature has increased. It is also a possibility that your refrigerator is not cold because of the evaporator fan. The evaporator is activated by the door switch, which comes on when the door opens. If the switch is not working properly it will not turn on the evaporator fan.
