Ffbm 920w won't cool


It appears that your auto defrosting system (if you have one) is not working. So your evaporator coil is frozen up - all that ice serves as an insulator and not enough cold air is getting down into frig section. Until you replace either the freezer defrost element or the defrost timer all you need to do is unplug for a few hours till it fully defrosts then plug back in - will work fine for a few days at normal internal temps till the ice builds up again.

If your timer and defrost element are both working properly, THEN, you might want to check if you have enough refrigerant in the system - you may have a leak.

Only top section of chest freezer is freezing


Hi
Normally what causes the refrigerator/lower chest not to be cold enough is that the fan that pulls the air from the freezer is not working.
Check to make sure it is working, if not then you will have to replace it.
If it is working then check you defrost timer, it could be faulty.
I will include these two websites for parts.

Wont turn off


This mentions ref/freezers but goes for both side by sides and just freezers alone:
This can be a tricky problem. There are three things that I can think of that can cause this. First is the defrost timer. To determine if this is the case look in the freezer at the freezer back wall. Is it cover completly with snow like ice? If so the timer is not letting the machine go into defrost. Also you should notice the fresh food part of the machine start to rise in temperature. The next thing is the machines cold control thermostat is faulty and even though the machine maybe cold enough the thermostat can't tell so it never kills power to the compressor. The last is that your machine is low on freon, so the freezer temperature never really gets low enough. Signs of this are decrease in ice maker production, ice cream softer than normal, or put a thermometer in t he freezer. The temperature should be around 0 degrees F and no more that 5 degrees F

We have a Amana BR18 Easy Reach bottom freezer. The fridge is turned up all the way, barely keeping food cold. The freezer is not freezing anything (ice, etc.). The freezer is still blowing cool air, but...


Low refrigerant assuming the compressor is always running and not being shut down by the thermostat.

You can hook up an ammeter to the unit to see if the current consumption is below spec, another sign of low gas situation since the motor is not working as hard as under normal conditions.

The freezer compartment of my daewoo FRN-U20DA is not cold enough and the ice is melting. The fan does not come on and there is no fault indicated on the display panel.


when the fan is not working. you cannot expect an ice cause the fan is to drive the cold to become an ice and to maintain the coldness.

Used Kenmore freezer won't get cold enough


If it is running but not cooling enough the problem is in the sealed system.

If you started it up just after hauling it home it may have be moved around enough to get oil in the systems smaller tubing causing problems. Unplug the unit for 24 hours and let it sit. Try it again for 24 hours and see if it cools.

If not this means either there is a refrigerant (freon) leak in the system or a restriction causing the refrigerant to not flow properly.

Either one are an expensive repair. and will require a professional to look at.

Fridge not working but freezer is ok fridge light works


There is probably an ice build up between the two sides of the appliance. There may also be a problem with the damper unit which controls the cold air coming from the freezer side to the fridge. The fridge is controlled by the freezer. Dependant on appliance. The door opens and closes letting the cold air go into the fridge and when the fridge is cold enough the door will close agin. This is not something that you will see happening it is normally concealed behing a diffuser.

My fridge freezer is running non stop


It is probably because it's not getting cold enough to cut off. If you slowly turn the thermostat to warmer it should cut off when it gets to that temp.If it doesn't cut off then it is a thermostat problem. When you have heavy ice buildup on the evaporator coils inside the freezer behind the back panel that will hamper the cooling. This is caused by a defrost system failure.

Freezer is not cold enough.


Turning it to the right will make it colder. It will only regulate the temp. by few degrees, so if your thinking there will be a big change there won't be.
