YOU CAN MANUALLY DEFROST THIS AND GET IT GOING UNTIL YOU GET IT REPAIRED. UNPLUG REFRIGERATOR AND LEAVE FREEZER DOOR OPEN FOR 12 HOURS OR MORE. OR UNPLUG REFRIGERATOR, TAKE THE LOWER PANEL OFF INSIDE FREEZER AND DEFROST WITH A HAIR DRYER. THIS SHOULD TAKE ABOUT 45 MINUTES. THE MOST COMMON REPAIR IS THE DEFROST THERMOSTAT. YOU PROBABLY HAVE A BAD ADAPTIVE DEFROST BOARD.

You have a defrost system problem. Defrost is controlled by a timer which energizes the heater circuit. The heater circuit has a radiant or cal rod type heater which melts the frost from the coil. When the coil reaches a temperature where all ice would be gone a termination switch opens and shuts of the heater. The timer will continue to run until defrost time expires (18-22 minutes).

If you can locate the timer there is a clutch head screw to advance the timer to the defrost position. Turn the screw clockwise SLOWLY until you hear one audible click. The heaters should come on and defrost take place. If the unit restarts after the 18-22 minute period the timer is good, if it does not restart advance the screw to a second audible click and it will restart.
If you had to turn the timer the to second click to get it started cooling replace the timer.

If the unit restarted after the 18-22 minutes and defrost did not happen your problem is in the heater circuit. This would be an open heater or bad defrost terminator switch. To access the heater and defrost terminator the back panel in the freezer section must be removed. With an Ohm meter you can check the heater to see if it is good.

You need to unplug the unit and check continuity with a meter across the defrost heater/s. If they are open, that's your problem. The defrost termination thermostat HAS to be below 20 degrees (varies model to model) to close. If at room temp it will read open. Doubtful it is your defrost timer.

SOURCE: freezer workss but fridge dont

Check for a frost buildup on the interior back wall of the freezer. If you find this, a problem exists in the defrost circuit (heater, terminator or control).

Also verify that the evaporator (freezer) fan is functioning.

A failed damper control can cause this condition as well.

Proper product temps are 0 to 10 in the freezer and 36 to 42 in the fresh food compartment.

SOURCE: Freezer very cold fridge warm.

the freezer circulates air through the refrigerator by using a fan every 24 hours the defrost timer comes on the compressor goes off and, the machine defrosts if your mullion defrost heaters are getting hot
and, staying hot you have miss-wired your defrost timer

Better solution is to replace the defrost element,defrost timer,or defrost thermostat,one of these are not working and when replaced will fix the problem.

Freezer works fridge doesnt?


most likely defrost problem . most refrigerators getting their cold air from the freezer, so if your frezzer frost up, no air gets to fridge side, u have to remove the frezzer panel and inspect the evaporator coil, if frosty, u have bad defrost system, which part is bad? depends on the brand and model.

Yes, only part that gets could is in the Freezer. If block by ice (usually) this will not allow the cold air to go into the ref., if so, defrost problem. Check amount of ice on coils in back of Freezer. Should only be a thin frosting.

Freezer to cold refrigerator not cold enough


sounds like your defrost timer is not working properly . Most fridge/freezers the fridge gets cooled from the cool air from the freezer . But when the defrost timer is not working properly the section between the fridge and freezer freezes up and hence doesnt allow the flow of cool air into the fridge. The defrost timer can be easily replaced.
