Hi,

You need to replace the start device on the compressor, if you click on the link below it will take you to a service site that has the parts in stock for delivery, This goes inside the plastic box on the compressor. It is a 15 minute repair and will get you going.

You could get it ( Starting Device Kit ) from :-

Note - If the Compressor would be at Fault, then you do have 5 Years Warranty ( Most of the Brands )

Refer :-

Freezer is cold, but cold air is not circulating in refrigerator


Check freezer fan is working.If ice formed over freezer fan by working. It's a common problem due to irregular defrosting. Keep freezer setting temp at 5 degree. And check defrost timer, thermostat,heater are working properly.
Turn timer with small tip screw driver to shut off fridge. If not shut off, replace timer. Turn counter clockwise defrost thermostat. If fridge not shuts off replace defrost thermostat.Check heater by join the 2 wires in the defrost thermostat. And after 1 minute, unplug power and keep your arm on heater. If it's warm heater is o.k. Otherwise, replace heater.
Once heater starts work at regular interval controlled by thermostat and timer, defrost will be good and effective cooling will also be in fridge compartment.

Fridge is warm with no cold air.


Unless there are 2 thermostats, one for freezer and one for refrig, it's not the thermostat if the freezer is ok. Sounds like the small fan that blows the cold air from freezer into refrig is not operating.

Princess series model FN66011S The refrigerator does not change temp.it remains warm...freezer does freeze. Is this a fixable problem?


HI!!

The little fan inside the freezer is the one in charge of blowing cold air into the fridge area, the freezer control (thermostat), regulates how cold it should get, and the Refrigerator control regulates how much of this cold air goes to the fridge compartment. It is important to keep the door gasket clean at all times in order to have a good thight seal.

Check:

1.- That the freezer and fridge controls are set correctly, acording to manufacturers specs. (a common problem arises when by accident, the temp. controls are moved out of preset adjusment.

2.- That the fan is working and sounds strong, (If you keep the freezer door open for a couple of minutes, you should hear and see the motor kiking in.)

3.- Find the vent(s) in the fridge compartment and feel if cold air is coming thru when fan is working. If fan is working and blows no air, Take the freezer's back panel off, (4 hexhead screws) just enough to see inside and check if the evaporator (radiator looking component) is covered with ice, blocking the flow of air towards the fridge compartment, if it is, your defrost thermostat and-or timer are defective.

Your temp control for the fridge when you first start it, should be a bit higher than the one for the freezer. (the freezer should be in the low-middle range.) This control is nothing but a actuator for a door that controls the flow of air from the freezer. The bigger the number, the wider the door opens, and the colder the fridge gets.

Once the system is stable, let's say the next day, you can re-adjust your controls, (don't expect an inmediate change right away, change one digit a the time and check again next day) If you set your fridge too high and the freezer too low, the freezer may loose coldness and the problem would invert.

Good Luck!!!

Kenmore refridge/freezer just stops working. I


. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.
Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Clicking sound and warm temps


Sounds like the compressor is frozen and won;t turn. a slight chance that it starter relay is bad, you will need to get a repairman to check it out.

Fridgidare, freezer cold fridge warm


sounds like you may have gotten a refridgerant leak causing a low charge condition. some refridgerators have a evaporator fan if this quit working it will cause it to freeze up .thus the freezer does not use a fan and it will still get cold

My freezer works perfect but everything in the refrigerator doesn't get cold enough. My milk sours. My fridge is an inglis and supposedly brand new


Warm fridge cold freezer problem fixed
In the freezer section there was a one screw removable panel which housed a four bladed rotary fan. One blade had broken off adn was jamming the fan from rotating. Once the broken part was removed the fan was free to rotate, but out of balance, but it did get the fridge going again. It took about one minute to replace the fan once a spare was aquired. Now I understand how it works, if one side of your fridge freezer is not working it can only be the air movement or lack of it Robert

Fridge and freezer not cold


It happenedn to my performa fridge just yesterday. It was bought in 2005. Now there is humming and clicking sound from the lower back side once in a while and the fridge is not cold. the compressor is hot/warm and it seems to be where the noise is coming from.
