Refrigerator section stopped cooling, but the freezer section still works.


Hi. There is a valve in the top corner of the frigde that controls the cold Air to flow from the freezer to cool the fridge. This valve called a damper closes when the door is opened. You have to depress the door switch and listen for the fan in the freezer to switch on then feel for cold air to flow into the fridge compartment. The fan could have failed or the damper valve could be stuck closed.

My frige & freezer do not cool,light & freezer fan run,compressor & coil fan do not run,air is blowing out of air vent in freezer,no cooling at all


If the compressor isn't running, the refrigerator or freezer won't cool - period. Hopefully, by now, you've had a repair technician come and troubleshoot the problem.

Can you look to see if the fan below your refrigerator is blowing a strong steady flow of warm air. Sounds like you either have a fan problem or an obstruction blocking air flow to the condenser. This will cause the refrigerator to stop cooling. What is the model number? Thanks Sea Breeze

is there air coming out of the freezer vent inside the freezer? If not, then there is ice built up on the fan. Let me know if there is air blowing in the freezer or not.

Refrigerator portion on top does have cooling but freezer on bottom works fine. I have read that the cooling all happens in the bottom and a fan transfers cool air to the the top.


if the fridge part is cool and freezer is fine what problem are you having?is the fridge not cold enough? a common problem with bottom mount freezers is the freezer door doesn't get closed all the way,warm air enters the freezer mixes with the zero degree air and freezes up the air ducts,when you open the freezer door you should hear the fan blowing,if it is check the ceiling in the freezer to see if ice is on it,check the packages for frozen water droplets and stick your hand in the fridge where the air ducts are to see if you can feel cold air blowing into the fridge,if you can't feel air blowing into the fridge,unplug it,open the freezer door,remove the top basket and remove all the food out of the bottom basket,with a hair dryer blow into the back wall into the vent holes and melt out all the ice in the ducts,you'll see water dripping down through the vent holes,when the water stops dripping plug it back in and see if the fan is blowing the air into the fridge.also you can remove the bottom kickplate and you should see a tech sheet in it,read it and it will tell you how to put the machine into defrost,it will stay in defrost for like 20 minutes,you can do this instead of unplugging it, there's a heater that comes on behind the back panel in the freezer,this can help you melt out the ice but if it seems to hard to do just unplug it.

My amana abd2533dew purchased in 2005 has stopped cooling.Woke up with the freezer blowing warm air,all food thawed. refrigerator temp falling fast.Service can't come for 3 days? I have an extended...


If the freezer compartment is blowing warm air, then you either have a problem with the compressor (or a freon leak) or a problem with the fan located next to the compressor (at the back of the machine).

Attached to the compressor is an overload protector, which is most likely what broke, but if you are covered by a service contract your best bet is to wait it out and let them fix it. One thing that might have caused the overload to break is too much dust on the condenser (the radiator looking thing underneath the machine, accessible from the front).

Refrigerator and freezer are not cool enough. Cleaned coils,has enough space between walls.etc.


Most likely problem is the internal fan. The fan draws air across the cooling coils and blows it into the freezer and refrigerator compartments. If it malfunctions, there's nothing to move the cold air and both sides of the unit get warm.

Refridgerator with bottom freezer. Fridge is not cooling at all, but bottom freezer is just fine. What do I do


With almost all refrigerators, all the cooling takes place in the freezer and a fan then blows some of the cooled air into the refrigerator section to cool it. Look for a non functioning fan in the freezer, frost or ice build up in air ducts leading from freezer into refrig section, and make sure controls are not set to the coldest freezer setting. (that keeps most of the cold air in the freezer)
