Go inside the freezer side an see if you have ice on the back wall panel,(((inside of the frezeer side)))
if you do then you have a ice blockage on the coil that prevents the air from traveling tru it an cooling ur fridge side
that is the problem, now..... lets see why that is happening...!


empty the freezer side, remove the screws careful,

find the defrost timer,normally on the refrigerator side , there is a little hole by the control panel,you will see a small hole about the size of a pen find a small screw driver and , stick a small screw driver in the hole an turn it i think is counter clockwise till it stops at the line mark you will hear a click if you miss it do it again wait like 10 mins an see if the ice melts on the coil.
if the ice starts to melt, you have a ((bad an stuck defrost timer)),

if it doesn't melt then you have a problem with the heater an therminator aronund the coil.... you have to do a volt test the components.
NOTE if you have to replace the advance timer is easy, but when you do it , turn the timer to something like the 11 o clock mark, right before the line, that would allow the machine to go into defrost cycle right after you put it back together, and melt the ice, since model are different, u want to be safe anyway, let it cycle that will clear any ice on the coil an should work ok after that!.. the big mistake some ppl do is to let ir run while they go to the part store, they come back an install the timer, but by the time they are done, they have more ice on the coil plus the ice that builts from the cycles that they have more ice than what the cycle can clear an then they have othr problems like water dripping inside the pan an eventually more ice up coil!!

post some feed back thanks

My freezer is freezing but frig isn't cooling


Usually when this happens it is because of a problem with the fan that moves cold air from the freezer section of your unit to the refrigerator section. Either the fan has gone bad or the unit has frosted up to the point of stopping the fan. Try defrosting (unplugging) the unit over night and then check it to see if the fan runs. If not then replace the fan. If it runs and then stops after awhile like days or even a few weeks, then you may need a defrost timer.
I hope that this helps you to solve your problem.


Thanks for using Fixya!!

REFRIG WILL NOT GET ANYTHING COLD


make sure there is no frost buildup behinde the freezer back panal and the ducts to the frig are clear. Leaving the door open will make a lot of frost and diminish the cooling capacity.

Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works


There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.
