My Daewoo refrigirator's freezer is cooling but not the lower com

I purchased a used Daewoo refrigirator's couple of days back. The seller showed me it that it is working fine when I went to see it but when I went to take the delivery he had switched it off. I brought it home left it unplugged for 1-2 days. When I switched it On it started to cool but the cooling was not that much. In next 1-2 days I observed that the freezer is cooling but not the lower compartment. If I switch it off for 8-10 hours it starts to cool (not very cool though) but after a day or two the lower compartment becomes hot again. The freezer also is not that cold to completely freeze meat and other stuff. Please help

Sounds like you need to replace the ptc overload on the compressor as this component supplies start and run power to the compressor and its getting weak and short cycling the compressor,they just unplug and plug into the side of the compressor and when you remove it shake it by hand and if you hear it rattle thats a good sign its bad

I have ice buildup in the lower right hand side of the freezer in the back behind the baskets


Haier are a bad brand, the unit has cooling fin frost up and will not allow air to pass through the cooling plates, defrost the unit for 2 days with door open and restart, if all good after that, keep doing it, if not, its lost gas and needs the bin. Quality items deliver lengthy trouble free operation, sorry but I put Haier in the Daewoo class, Kelvinator or Westinghouse next time, its worth that little extra. Regards Russ

I AM USING A DAEWOO REFRIGERATOR. THE UPPER CHAMBER OR THE FREEZER IS VERY COLD BUT THE LOWER CHAMBER IS NOT COOLING . WHY IS THAT SO?


Hello Nickel129,

I understand that you are having a problem with the refrigerator. The freezer is cooling just fine however, the fridge is not cooling enough or at all.

1. Check to see if you here the fan in the back of your freezer compartment turning.
a. if you do not here the fan then you need to replace it.
1. Unplug unit (fridge)
2. Remove the screws holding the bottom (if any) and the back cover.
3. Locate the fan and remove the wires
4. unbolt the fan and remove the fan blade (some new motors do not come with the blade)
5. Purchase a new motor at a local hardware/appliance store
2. If the motor is running you need to check the air tunnels (pasages in the frezzer)
a. Remove the covers in the freezer as above. There will be one, two or three holes that go thru the bottom and into the fridge. If these holes are full of ice defrost (w/water, hair dryer, etc.) so that air can pass thru the holes.

The above should help you to fix your refrigerator.

The freezer maintains the temperature, but the refrigirator shows 47 degrees irrespective of the setting.

Refrigirator is not cooling. Freezer is cooling


if you have a bottom freezer, you need to defrost the unit the cool air from the freeezer is what cools the top part, but the channels are iced up
unplug the unit and let it thaw out overnight

Freezer and Refrigirator not cooling


You didn't say if the compressor is running or not. If it is and all other things you stated are running then it has a sealed system problem. The sealed system comes with a 5 yr warranty in most cases (check owners manual). If the compressor is not running then listen for a click at the compressor. If you hear the click then I would replace the relay on the compressor. If you need further help I will need the complete model # off the sticker inside the fridge section.
