Kelvinator fridge not cooling


Try defrosting the fridge. Check the cold plate at the back of the food compartment once the fridge has been defrosted and turned back on again. The cold plate in the freezer (around the walls) will be cold to touch as will the cold plate at the back of the fridge,

Fridge not getting cold


With a top freezer the cold air comes from the freezer down into the fridge. It uses a fan to blow the air down. It's possible that the fan is burned out. Does the fan come on if you turn the temp. to the fridge to colder? If not, then that may be the problem. The fix is not too easy, but can be done by an experienced do-it-yourselfer.

Came home and all the ice has melted in icemaker and everything defrosted. Some cold air is blowing, but not much. A distinct clicking noise happens every few minutes. No power outage and we tried...


Hi,
There is hope but not a great deal. That clicking sound you hear is the compressor (that part of the refrigerator that creates cold air) trying to start. It may be very hot. The reason usually is that there is dust clogging the coils at the base of the unit that must be cleaned out. There is a fan motor, usually mounted in the back of the fridge in the base next to the compressor. That fan may not be turning. If that is the case, the compressor will shut down to prevent overheating (a good thing).
Here is what you should do.
0 Pull out the fridge taking care not to damage the water line to the ice maker
1 Unplug it to let it cool down completely.
2 Put your salvageable food into camping coolers with bags of ice.
3 Purchase a long skinny refrigerator coil cleaning brush (I've seen these at Walmart)
4. Change into real work clothes. This will be a dirty job.
5 Remove the "grille" on the front of the fridge, at the base. Just pull it straight off.
6 Brush out the dust from the coils from the front bottom.
7 Replace the grill.
(Sorry. Your not done.)
8 When the fridge is out from the wall (you will want to sweep and mop what you see back there)
9 Remove the cardboard cover from the rear. (You will likely need 1/4 inch or 5/16 inch nut driver to remove hex head screws). Observe the cardboard covor as you will need to bend it to remove, after the screws holding it are off. (You may also want to wear gloves keep fiberglass from getting onto your skin.)
If you accidentally tear the cardboard, don't fret as it can usually be fixed with duct tape.
10 Now after all that,(which really doesn't take long). You will be looking at a black metal case with small pipes running out of it. That is the compressor.
You will also be looking at (depending on the design) a condenser fan.
11 If there is a Condenser Fan (usually on side-by-side refrigerators) then finding out if it works or not will be part of the diagnostic steps.
12 Plug in the fridge after it has cooled down completely (several hours) and see if the compressor comes on.
It may come on instantly. If it does check to see if the condenser fan blade is turning.
If it is not turning and the compressor starts to run. shut the Fridge down.
13 Check to see if there is an obstruction to it turning (such as a small toy). If there was an obstruction, plug the fridge back in and see if the fan now turnes. If it does, you have likely repaired the broken component.
14 If the fan blades does not turn, unplug the fridge again and replace the condenser fan motor.
You will need some tools to do this such as a 1/4" socket set, Wiring tools, Wire Stripper, Wire Nuts, Wire Ties. A handy man level of experience is required for replacement of this part.
15 When done replacing it (or removing the obstruction), make sure the back cardboard panel is reinstalled. It is vital to the efficient operation of the fridge.

16 Plug the fridge back in. Give it two hours of running time to see if it will start to cool. Probably will. If not, there could have been a refrigerant leak. If so, only a professional is licensed to do the work. If there is a refrigerant leak, then the repair is likely not recommended.
I hope this helps
Best Regards,
Mark

Samsung SRS583HDP fridge not cooling. Side by side


Most likely the thermostat in the fridge, especially if it read 5 degrees until you reset it. Possibly the compressor in the fridge side as this fridge has twin cooling, or the circulating fan in the back of the fridge is frozen, which is a common problem as well.
Easiest things to try is to see if the fan is frozen and check if the fridge cooling is actually working. Turn off the fridge, remove the shelves, remove the 4 screws that hold in the bottom cover and the 2 screws that hold the water tank in. Cover should then come out a few inches. Reach behind and unplug the 2 plugs and pull out the cover. If the cover doesnt come out easily it may be glued to the back of the fridge by ice. Leave for a couple of hours and gently prize it off. Check for ice around the fan and that the fan spins freely. You could try sitting the cover inside the fridge, plug it in turn it back on for a few minutes (be careful) and then open the door and quickly look / listen to see if the fan is still spinning (it stops when you open the door). Leave the fridge off for a while until the ice disappears off the coils. Turn back on for half an hour. The coils should be icy again. Anything else call Samsung. If the deal in your country is the same as mine the fridge has a 2 year warranty but in the fine print the sealed compressor unit has five years on parts only. You could get the unit replaced for labour costs only. Check your warranty card.

Evaporator Fan Motor noise is excessive for this refrigerator. GE Profile CustomStyle Model PTI22SFMARBS Serial# SF900146V


Despite my urge to vent about GE refrigerators, I'll keep this short.

If you have a constant squealing noise from the evaporator fan in the freezer, there's a good chance the fan just has failing bearings, and replacing the evaporator fan might solve the problem.

But if the noise is intermittent; quiet sometimes but sometimes buzzing loudly, then my bet is there's nothing wrong with your evaporator fan. It's a problem with the design of GE fridges: They don't defrost completely. So ice builds up on the back freezer wall, etc., and on and around the evaporator fan. That's not a problem when the fan is in "low speed mode". But open the door, get the fridge warm, and the fan kicks into "high speed mode". That's when the noise will start, as the fan blades and assembly warps under speed to hit ice and start vibrating.

Acid test is this: While the noise is occurring, turn the fridge temp (not freezer) control up as high as you can without turning off the fridge. That will make the fan shift into low speed. If the noise stops, you got ice on the fan, my friend.

In that case, unplug the fridge, and get a hair dryer and blow warm air into and onto the evaporator fan area. Maybe gently whack the fan area with your hand a bit, to knock the ice off. Once you get all the ice off, turn it back on. If it runs on high, without any noise, the problem is fixed ... until the next set of high humidity days. I plan to post a video about this, once I get it edited to remove the expletives. ;-)

GE will sell you a "moisture kit" for $340, which may fix the problem, but only if your fridge is out of warranty.

If your fridge is still under warranty, GE will tell you there's nothing wrong and that maybe you just need ear plugs.

Beeping constantly in middle of night


My fridge (E440T but I believe the E522B is similar) also had a broken fan wire. I pulled off the panel and re-soldered the wire. I also created a document for others to follow if interested at http://www.accentis.com.au/downloads/misc/How I fixed my Fisher and Paykel Fridge Active Smart Fridge.pdf
Thanks to all postings on this site - it really helped a lot.

Refrigerator problem


3 most common things that cause this are a defrost problem (will notice frost build up on back freezer panel), bad evaporator fan motor (should hear fan running in the freezer), or bad damper (vent to the fridge section). If no frost and fan is running check for air flow out of the vent. It should be at the top of the fridge section.
