I come home the other night and everything in the freezer was thawed and in the fridge it was warm. I unplugged the fridge and used a different plug, to no avail. When i unplugged it something did turn off, sounds like the fan. But other then that it is not working?? What do i do?? The manual has no questions/solutions for this. Can someone help me??
Is it a side by side?
Pull the fridge out.. remove the cardboard bottom cover and inspect the fan next to the compressor to ensure that it is working. Sometimes it can be blocked by the false bottom of the fridge which is made of cardboard and tends to buckle in the heat.
If the fan is not working and there are no obstructions, you will need to replace it or have a tech check it for power.
Check your plug behind the fridge with a light if you don't have Multi-meter.
Checking the back fan will take you just a few minutes and can save you a lot of grief.

The refrigerator half of a refrigerator/freezer does not produce any cold! The refrigerator is cooled by transferring air from the freezer to the fridge. The fridge temperature setting controls a flapper between the freezer and the fridge. There should be a fan which blows air from the freezer into the fridge (through the damper).
If the ice forming in the freezer is concealing the cooling coil and air can not move through the coils, then the overall result will be a warm freezer (even though there may be ice in one location) and a warmer yet fridge. This can be tested by unplugging the fridge and allowing a complete thaw. If the ice is the cause of the problem, then it should work for a short while until it freezes up improperly again
You have to completly thaw out the the freezer and dry off all moisture with paper towels then turn back on be sure to wipe the rubber seals down so no moisture is pulled out of the air between the seals of the door and cabnet.
Had the same problem. Chances are that the water has frozen in the supply tube, not allowing water into the maker. you will need to unplug and thaw out your fridge entirely to thaw it out. I used a hair dryer pointed at the filler tube to defrost it.
hi thanks for the question the freezer is more than likely frosted up now with the door left open the drain hose from freezer is clogged shut down let thaw remove panel at the back of fridge allow 24 hrs to thaw clean out the drain tube re level the fridge so that if the door is left open the door will close by its self raise the front legs to achieve this thanks the appliance doc
find another place for all of your food because you may need to call a service company.
stuck in defrost (if nothing is running)
bad compressor (if fans are still running)
freon problem if everything is still running
You have a failed component or components in your automatic defrost system. This is why you have excessive frost inside the freezer along the back wall. The timer could be stuck in run mode. The defrost thermostat (bi-metal) could be defective or the defrost heater could be open or shorted.
