There is nothing that work in the fridge it is just a box everything comes from the freezer. Check if the fan is running this is how the fridge gets its cold air. Check your freezer setting in your fridge. make sure it says warmer fridge. it a door that opens and closes.

The bottom freezer has exceesive frost, and is not cold enough. I tried to remove the frost, it will work for about a week afterwords. Help


Really when the fridge frost very excessively there is less cold.
You have to regularly set up defrost setting if your fridge has automatic defrost.
Or your fridge has manual defrost then defrost it twice a week.
To minimize excessive frost, set the temp control setting to just mid- position.
Good luck.

I have a Maytag 3 door ,freezer on the bottom, for the last 3 years every few weeks the fridge looses its coldness and the freezer is ice cold also it it always on temperature 1, so I have to unplug it...


Either, the defrost timmer has had it, or the freezer defrost element has failed, the element is the most common cause of this type of problem. You have ice build-up in the freezer cores because it cant defrost, all frostfree units rely on cold air from the freezer to blow into the fridge, if the freezer cores become blocked, air can not pass to the fridge side. I bet you, if you left the unit off for 2 days to defrost totally,,,,with the doors open...then plugged it back in, it would work like new for 2 weeks.
Timmer or defrost element needs to be replaced...do not fall for the trick that the fridge mech. has to take it away, you tell him that this is the problem and you will save yourself ALOT of cash.

Refrigerator and freezer not getting cold enough


If the problem just gradually started happening, it's possibly the defrost cycle that's not working right. Fridge doesn't defrost, the cooling system ices up, and the cold air can no longer travel through the fridge.

You can tell that's the problem if you fully defrost the fridge (turn it off for a day), then start it up again. If it works OK for a while, then does the same thing after a few weeks that's what it is. Either way, you need a repair person to fix it, or you need to defrost it regularly, but then what do you do with your food while you do that???

Zanussi fridge freezer - fridge not working


The defrost cycle is not happening like it should, that's what causes the block of ice (and poor air flow). If you have all that defrosted look at the defrost bi-metal, it usually is a small round disk with a couple wires coming out of it and it's clipped on the coils. When it's cold enough, it passes electricity to the heat elements, when it gets hot enough it "opens" and kills power to the heat elements. If that is bad (swollen cracked or bloated) and not passing electricity to the elements that's the problem. Another item would be the defrost timer itself, if it doesn't work (no clock motor turning) then it will never go into defrost. And the last and usually least expected failure would be the heat element themselves not working
