Question about Haier HTE18WAA Top Freezer Refrigerator
My freezer teperature is fine, well below zero as I have the temperature control to maximum, but the fridge temp is at about 55-60 degrees. I started by cleaning the coils, which were filthy, but no difference after a couple of days. The refrigerator seal seems to be in fine shape with no leaks (about 4 years old), and even when taping the door tightly shut overnight there is no difference. The compressor seems to be running continuously.
I am not well-versed in refrigerator operation, but there may be a fan behind the vent holes in the back of the freezer, perhaps designed to flow air into the fridge, that may have quit. I am not positive. Even if that is true, the parts list names two fan motors, and I do not know which is which (the one at the bottom of the fridge next to the compressor is still operating fine.
There are also two holes in the top of the fridge compartment that I assume should have air flowing through them but there is not. Though I can feel some ice inside the holes when checking it out, I would not say they are completely clogged. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Any time the compressor is running the fan in the freezer should be running now you need to empty the freezer do you see a lot of frost on the back wall of the freezer you either have a defrost problem and frost has built up so much its stalling the fan or the fan its self is bad pull the back cover off the freezer wall and tell me what you see please also give me your model number off the serial plate which should be in the fridge section put your freezer stuff in the fridge while we check it out

SOURCE: freezer okay, fridge warm
May need defrosting, so do that, and also unplug the unit for 9 minutes, as this should reset anything that might have affected the problem. Check with Kenmore customer service department on how long the unit takes to get to a set temperature after resetting and consult your manual on your warranty options.

You have already dianosed the problem. Now take that cover off in the freezer and see if you can get that fan to work, it is your problem and you can replace it IF it is bad or lube it's bushings and see if it will work a few more years. (use 3 in 1 oil) Gook luck!
