How do I fix a refrigerator that won't cool?


if you are sure the evap fans are running (the ones inside) then only 2 things left.... 1- there is ice build up around the evaporators blocking air flow..... 2- the unit is out of freon.... I really suspect that there is ice around evap, samsung's are not known for having freon leaks.....I would unplug unit for 24-48 hours, then remove ff shelving, then take 2 screws out,(located on the bottom left and right of the evap cover and the one that is behind a plastic plug located in the center about 2/3 of the way to the top of the cover....once you remove the screws, grasp the cover on the bottom right corner and gently pull out to remove cover, being careful not to break the foam that channels air..... once removed check to see where the ice is left.... usually in the top right corner, if so replace the sensor located there...

Water building up in bottom of fridge


more than likely you have a clogged drain. This occurs when the machine goes into defrost and the melted ice somehow is prevented from draining and therefor refreezing and blocking the drain for the next defrost cycle. Over time it gradually builds and starts voer a larger area. Being you have a top mount refrigerator(freezer on top) there are air ways that connect the freezer to the fridege, which is how its cooled. The best way to resolve this is to unplug the machine for atleast 24-48 hours to let all ice melt
If thats not an option that you want to use the actual repair method would be to 1) unplug the machine 2) empty everything out of the freezer so you'll have room to work 3) take all the shelving and baskets out 4) locate the screws on the rear wall inside the freezer and remove them 5) take the back panel off exposing the evaporator coils ( the aluminum ) 6) directly below the coils is a trough of sorts and the drain is usually in the middle and runs out the bottom, remove the ice by carefully chipping it out or by using a hair dryer or hot water. 7) once all the ice is gone, the drain is visible and water can flow smnoothly down the drain dry the area and reassemble.

Water leaks under viking professional and there is about a 1/4 inch build up of ice on floor of freezer(which is on the bottom) on the floor of the pull ot freezer


Your drain is plugged. Basically the freezer goes into defrost and melts frost off the condenser coils. A big piece most likely fell off and freezer came out of defrost before it coulld melt and drain out completely. To fix you have 2 options. Have towels
#1- move contents of fridge and freezer to a backup fridge. Leave unpluged with doors slightly opened for 24 to 48 hrs. Use towels to cleanup any water. Plug back in wait 2 hrs to make sure temp gets back down before putting contents back in fridge.
#2- Remove contents from fridge and put in ice chest. Have towels ready. Remove ice maker ( if there is one) usually two screws on top hard to see and one on bottom. Disconnect the quick connect for the ice maker. Remove screw on back wall. Be careful when removing air vent on back wall. Its plastic and can break. Remove back panel. Look on the silver plate under coils and you will see ice and where the drain is. Remove ice than pour hot hot water down drain until it flows freely into drain pan under fridge by compressor. It may look like there is not ice make sure othyerwise you will be doing this all over again in a few days. Once water flows freely put everything back together wait about 2 hrs for freezer temp to get cold enough and than you can put contents back in freezer. If you have any question or need help please feel free to comment me back.

Vent flows cold air through frezer to right side when door open, but no flow when freezer door is closed. Temp drop in fridge side. Vent is cleared of ice build up.


Good day,
There are 2 vents. The one on the top to allow air from the freezer into the fridge. There is a second one, a return on the bottom left that allows the air to return to the freezer.
The return vent is the one that is blocked. (iced up).
On your model, it is very difficult to melt the ice out especially using heat due to all the plastic and foam.
Although ugly, it is best to unplug the machine, and leaving both doors open fo 24 hours.

Stopped cooling in bottom but freezer still works


make sure there isn't something blocking the air flow from freezer into refrigerator. If possible, unplug for a little while and see if water leaks out from back wall where evaporator is. It may be frozen up, blocking the fan from pushing air through. Listen closly to back wall to hear if fan is operating, it might be hitting ice build up. If fan is not running at all, that;s your problem.

Refigerator is cooling in the lower area and not in the top, the freezer is coolinf fine


MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE DIALS ON THE CORRECT SETTING. IF SO, TAKE A LOOK UP TOP AND PUSH AND HOLD THE DOOR CLOSE BUTTON, WITH DOOR OPEN UNTIL YOU HEAR THE FAN COME ON. IF THE FAN DOES'NT COME ON WITHIN 5 TO 10 MINUTES, THEN YOUR FAN IS NOT BLOWING THE AIR DOWN. TAKE APART THE INSIDE OF THE TOP BY REMOVING BOTTOM AND BACK PANELS AND AIR FLOW DUCT WHICH ALLOWS THE AIR TO FLOW DOWN. SOME MODELS COME WITH ICE MAKERS, REMOVE THIS 1ST. 2ND THE BOTTOM. 3RD THE AIR FLOW DUCT. 4TH THE BACK PANEL. NOW WITH YOUR FINGER, SPIN THE FAN BLADE TO SEE IF IT TURNS FREELY. IF IT DOES, PUSH IN AND HOLD THE DOOR BUTTON IN WITH THE DOOR OPEN UNTIL THE FAN STARTS TO SPIN. NOW AT THE BACK OF THE TOP IS A DRAIN HOLE AND AIR CANALS. MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT FROZEN SHUT WITH ICE. IF THE DRAIN HOLE AND AIR CANALS ARE FROZEN YOU CAN USE HOT WATER TO DISSOLVE THE ICE, BE SURE TO PUT A BUCKET AT THE BACK OF THE LOWER HALF OF THE FRIDGE TO CATCH THE WATER AS IT THAWS. WHEN THE DRAIN HOLE IN THE BACK IS COMPLETELY CLEAR, YOU WILL HEAR A SLURP SOUND. DO NOT POKE OR TRY TO CHIP ANY OF THE ICE LOOSE BECAUSE THIS WILL DAMAGE THE UNIT AND YOU WILL LOSE ALL COOLANT. AFTER YOU HEAR THE SLURP, IT'S CLEAR. MAKE SURE NO ICE IS BETWEEN THE AIR CANALS AND BEGIN TO PUT THE TOP TOGETHER. 1ST HOLD THE DOOR BUTTON UNTIL THE FAN RUNS THEN RELEASE. 2ND MAKE SURE THERE IS NO MORE ICE BLOCKAGE. 3RD PUT ON BACK PANEL MAKING SURE IT DOES NOT TOUCH THE FAN BLADES, AFTER PUTTING ON THE BACK PANEL, SPIN THE FAN BLADES TO MAKE SURE IT SPINS. 4TH PUT ICE MAKER BACK IN IF YOU TOOK ONE OUT AND MAKE SURE YOU CONNECT THE CONNECTORS FOR IT. 5TH INSTALL THE AIR DUCT. 6TH INSTALL BOTTOM PANEL. YOUR DONE. NOW CHECK FAN FOR PROPER OPERATION IN THE MANNER STATED EARLIER, AND IF IT OPERATES WITH NO PROBLEMS THEN YOU HAVE REPAIRED THE PROBLEM. IF THE FAN DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY, THEN REPLACE THE FAN MOTOR. ALSO REMEMBER WHEN YOU RESET YOUR COLD DIALS INSIDE THE FRIDGE, IT TAKES AT LEAST 24 HRS. TO ADJUST ITSELF. THIS TAKES APPROXIMATELY 45 TO 1&1/2 HRS.

Westinghouse silhouette frost free 522 fridge is not cooling properly top and bottom.freezer fan is still working,and the motor at the bottom in the back of fridge stay's constantly running and has done...


The heating element, located behind the back plate of the freezer, is probably not working. A failed heating element leads to a build up of ice around the evaporator coils in the rear of the freezer. If the back plate of the freezer is removed (ONLY DO THIS WITH THE APPLIANCE UNPLUGGED FROM THE POWER SUPPLY) and there is a large build up of ice around the evaporator coils then it's a fairly good indication that the heating element is not working. The heating element comes on periodically to defrost/de-ice the evaporator coils. Heating element is often activated by a small timer switch which turns the heater on for a set time every 24 hrs or so. Heating element may be open circuit or timer switch may not be operating. Most likely to be open circuit heating element.

Kitchenaid Side by side refrigerator section is not cooling the freezer is over cooling


SINCE THE FRESH FOOD SECTION GETS ITS COOLING BY AIR CIRCULATION FROM THE FREEZER, THERE MUST BE A RESTRICTION IN AIR FLOW SOMEWHERE. CHECK THE FREEZER EVAPORATOR AND FAN TO BE SURE THAT THE FAN IS RUNNING, AND THE EVAPORATOR IS NOT RESTRICTED WITH FROST. CHECK THE DAMPER OPENINGS FROM THE FREEZER SIDE TO BE SURE THEY AREN'T ICED OVER. IF IT IS AN ELECTRONIC CONTROL, CHECK THE THERMISTOR CIRCUIT FOR PROPER RESISTANCE. TECH SHEET INSTALLED BEHIND THE TOE PLATE SHOULD GIVE THAT INFORMATION.
