My ctf1826ar freezer works great but the fridge is not cooling. Nothing is frozen or blocked. When the freezer door is open there is cool air that comes our of the vents in the fridge but when it is...

the frig part not cooling though the freezer works is usually caused by bad air flow due to restriction somewhere. check ur vent settings and make sure not defective, the door rubber insulation may also be defective and not sealing properly after closing? and thus cool air escapes? but if ur feeling noticing air flow from the freezer but not in the fridge, the flow is obstructed, if the flow is off and on, do u notice the sound of the fan always running or does it go off and then on, it may be defective, the only time fan should go off is when in defrost mode?

Tthe switch may be broken thus preventing it from changing or the freezer itself has a problem and in this case I suggest you either get a new fridge or get it fixed depending on how bad it is- hope I helped :}

A broken fan blade can cause a noisy motor. or a buildup of ice can cause some noise. If thes aren't the case you will need to have the fan motor replaced.

Where can i find the defrost cycle in my freezer? The coils were frozen up so I have defrost everything with a hair dryer. The fan is working but I want to check the defroster.

This timer is generally located in the under the fridge in the front or back. It's generally looks link a small square box about 3 inches square with a single round slotted dial. When you locate the timer using a flat head screwdriver simply turn the dial until you hear the compressor turn off a click. If the fridge is not running you can open the door long enough to warm it up and get the compressor started then turn the switch to make sure you have the defrost timer in the defrost mode. I would also suggest that you check the fridge hourly and make sure that it has started running again after a few hours. If you have a faulty switch this could keep the fridge from starting again. If the switch is faulty and the fridge fails to start by itself then simply rotate the timer until the fridge starts.
Also if your fridge is opened a lot or you live in a high humidity area this too can cause excesive icing. This link will give you a better understanding of fridge operations.

Display reads er and ff


Thanks for using FixYa. Error ff is freezer fan fault. This usually happens when either the rear board has gone bad or the freezer fan itself is bad and needs to be replaced. To check what is causing the error you can start with checking the fan which is located behind the back wall inside the freezer. Also check the rear board as it might not be putting the fridge into defrost long enough and is causing the ice to build up in the freezer and thus stopping the freezer fan from turning and so causing ff error. Leave the fridge unplugged for 24hrs which will melt all the ice then plug it back if still the issue is not resolved and you hear the fan running then it is the rear board that needs to be replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Freezer works, fridge does not. Also the sides of the fridge are really hot but not up the top near freezer section. Fridge has recently been moved. Thanks

Warm sides are usually caused by the condenser fan which is underneath around back not running. If it's not running when the compressor runs it will cause the problem you describe. You will need to remove the cardboard backing on the back of the fridge to access the fan.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

When it was moved, was it laid down? If it was it should be stood upright for 24 hours before being plugged back in.

Fridge is 12 years old or so and freezer has been icing up. The fridge is now suffering from global warming and is near useless, being the same temp as the outside air (it's summer here in NZ, yipee!). But...

I have a Roper RT21LMXKQ00 Freezer wont freeze

The problem is a defrost problem. The freezer coil has frost on it and thus restricts the cold air from flowing. This affects the refrigerator as it gets its cold air from the freezer. The ice will not make if the temperature is above 12*F and this also is why ice cream is like mush.
