I have a stainless steel top freezer ice make. the freezer seems t somewhat works but my refrigerator stopped getting cold. what should i do?


Check the fan in the refrigerator section, see if it's blowing air.
Next is the thermostat which you've probably already tried changing. Either one of these could have ice buildup making them not work correctly, so take everything out of the unit and use a house fan blowing into the refrigerator section to melt things out for a couple days. A hair dryer used on the areas will speed things up, but there's a risk of shock. Also the fan or thermostat may need to be replaced. (put your food items in another freezer/refrigerator as they will thaw and warm up within the time it will take for you to try to melt the ice out.)
The fact that the freezer is still working means that your compressor is working and the system isn't out of Freon.

Ac freezing


for a homeowner the first thing to check is the filter. also make sure the fan inside is running. once the coil freezes it does make it more difficult to push air so coil must thaw. don't continue to run unit if you see ice, you are only harming the system. if checks are good you likely have refrigerant issues and need a technician

I have a Samsung RF268ABRS Unit all food in bottom freezer thawed. Unit is running and ref is cool. I notice that the fan dosent seem to blow. Closed freezer up and its cold, but no air moving. How do...


I had a similar problem. my samsung freezer would only cool to 20 degrees, which also resulted in the freezer ice maker not functioning. (fridge door ice maker still worked) If you hold the power freeze and power cool buttons down together for 8 seconds it will a diagnostic. found the answers on http://appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?topic=8206.0 , as too what the codes meant. Mine was throwing a freezer fan code error. ordered one online $30 and replaced it. seems to be working. TIP -The fan is located behing the rear panel in the freezer. I had two fans. The regular looking one is the freezer fan, the squirrel cage fan feeds the fridge ice maker. Also the new fan motors don't come with blades, just pull the blades off the old one and put it on the new motor. Don't push it on too far, make sure there is enough clearance so it spins freely.

Freezer doesn't freeze Food is thawing in the freezer


if the compressor and freezer fan are on and not getting cold, check the condenser coils under the fridge. clean them out with a vacuum. if they can't release heat, the freezer won't cool. also check the fan in the back. replace it if it is not running. if the inside coils are frozen up, there is no air flow. defrost them and check the fan. otherwise you have a freon leak.

Freezer not getting cold enough to freeze.


First culprit could be a refrigerant leak and needs to be charged. If the evaporator is frozen solid it won't push enough sub zero air to freeze. Call a trusted ac&or repair man

Freezer is not freezing and refridgerator is not cold enough


have the freon checked for leaks, also check to make sure the compressor is coming on. If it comes on and is warm, boost freon. If the unit is not coming on properly, check the capasitors and compressor

Jenn Air ref/freezer not freezing/cooling


Take the back out of the freezer and check and see if the refrigerator is in defrost while it is cooling if it is replace the timmer, then check and see if the fan on the underside is working if not replace the motor this will cause the problem also.
If all that is ok feel the small line under the refrigerator ( high side) and see if it is hot while it is running if not check the freon in the refrigerator.

the unit is loosing the freon supply to the evaporator.you either have a leakage,a blockage or the compressor is not pumping to full capacity.
