SOURCE: Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works

There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.

SOURCE: ice maker leaking into ice storage tray

disreguard all the other fixyas,first if you still have ice buildup get your hair dryer and heat it up and melt it,then remove the front off the icemaker,you have a cube size dial,turn it down and it will reduce the amount of water that goes into the icemaker,if that does no work go on ebay and pickup a univeral icemaker for around $50,hope this helped you-mike

SOURCE: I have 'Magic Chef' 10.0 cu. ft. Refrigerator.

Hi,
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Why does my refrigerator circulate on bottom but not on top


Is this is a bottom mount fridge? Hey if your fridge is a fairly a new one. Say less than 8 years old and a fancy one then this is how it works.

a) Fan in freezer circulates air. Mainly to the freezer compartment.

b) Then for the fridge compartment there is a Vent door operated by a vent motor.

Either this vent motor not working and opening, or it is frozen or the thermister that controls the temperature on Fridge compartment is not asking for cooling and thus not sending power to the vent motor to open.

Fridge in storage for 4 yrs, now not cooling


Good day,
After that much time, be sure the fan motor in the freezer compartment is running, as well as the fan motor on the back bottom behind the cover by the compressor. Either could well have frozen up after 4 years of storage.
As well a refrigerant leak could have developed because of the time frame. However, if it is less then 5 years old, the sealed system would still be under factory warranty.

I have an admiral refigerator (top freezer) less than 3 years old. The unit sat in a vacant house unplugged for about a year and now will not cool. Any suggestions


Good day,
Check in the freezer compartment to see if you can hear the fan motor running. They will freeze up if left off for extended periods of time.
Another fan motor on the bottom back near the compressor can suffer the same fate.
If both check O.K. Then since it's under 5 years you could have a refrigerant leak or a compressor problem that is under factory warranty.
Call your selling dealer for service.

Look inside the fresh food compartment. Behind the temp. control cover is a defrost timer. Yours may have a small opening that you can put a pencil eraser in and turn clockwise. When you do that the refrigerator should begin cooling again. I will be here to help you get your refrigerator going with diagrams and part numbers, Thanks, Sea Breeze

The lowest setting in the freezer compartment may be set to cold holding back cooling to the refrigerator. Try your settings at mid-point on both refrigerator and freezer settings.
