Next time send the model number,if the freezer is warm it could be the start device on the compressor,unplug the machine so you don't damage the compressor,take off the back bottom panel,you'll see the compressor,on the side of it you'll see a cover with a metal clip holding it on to the side of compressor,pop it off with a screw driver and pull the start device off,most of the time you can shake the device and you can hear a rattling sound.call your parts store,give them the model number and they'll give you the right part to hopefully take care of your problem as long as the compressor didn't get damaged too.let me know how you make out and good luck,it's an easy fix just t ake your time,read the directions and watch your hands,there's no room to work in there and the compressor might be hot

My beverage air refrigator ri18 compressor turns on sounds like it works but doesnt get cold


1) Check the compressor working or not.. Air cooling type condenser fan may be not working properly.
2) Compressor working but not properly. Last side of condenser (Filter) Light Heat or not.
3) Inside Cooling area do not get cooling. may be gas leakage problem.
4) My opinion check Gas pressure Low and high side.

Hopoint fridge freezer model ff78p - fridge is not cooling


check the damper door vent between the freezer/refrigerator compartments and make sure this door is opening and closing as you adjust the cold control in the refrige section,it may have a diverter cover on it but you should feel cold air flow in this area even if its only open part way,then remove this cover and check that its not iced up if so use a hair dryer carefully and deice it,then try the control and see if it opens and closes as you adjust the cold control in the refrige

The fridge does not seem to be cold.


if just the refrige isnt cold,check the damper door located between the freezer and refrige compartments and see if its open to let in cold air from freezer,if not sometimes they freeze shut and cant operate with temperature setting changes/if nothings cold,then replace the ptc overload relay located on the compressor body,it just unplugs off the compressor

Just had a new compressor installed. My refrigerator side by side is too cold. I have set the control to ''factory set'' but still is too cold. Adjusted to lower setting, still too cold, below 30. What is...


check the freezer compartment temperature.should be around zero.if it is around zero but to cold in the refrig compartment you would be looking for a air flow problem,many refigerators have motorized dampers,they sometimes freeze,or break and allow too much cold air into refrig.if freezer is below zero your looking at a control issue

Whirlpool Model ED5SHAXML12 is freezing food in refrigerator even when dial is at off. Happened from one day to the next.


At the refrig controls , the freezer control , controls how much air goes into the refrigerator section . Open the refrig door , and up at the top left , put your hand over the damper (air vent) . Turn the freezer control from high to low , and feel the difference in the air flow . If you turn your freezer control to a lower setting , less cold air will enter the refrig . Think of it as : the freezer control adjusts the temperature , and the refrig control , tells how long to run the compressor . In actuality , this is how it works . However , with the dial (refrigerator thermostat) in the off position and refrig still running , this indicates a bad thermostat . Pt # 2198202 .

Warm in freezer and refrig


On some Amana refrigs , the defrost thermostat has to close before the fan will come on . The coils will get cold and since the bimetal clips onto the coils , it will get cold as they do . When cold enough , bimetal closes and the fan will come on . Are the coils getting cold ? If so , then the compressor is working . You could also have a bad fan motor instead of bimetal . Recheck to see if you hear the fan in freezer now .

The freezer is really cold....but the fridge isn't blowing any cool air.


there is a vent control, in the Refrig area, that directs air between the refrig and the freezer. Check to make sure its not shut off that will blow all the cold air into the freezer.

Freezer cold /refrigator warm . we have a side by side unit a couple of years old the freezer seems to work fine but the refrigator is warm .It don,t seem to make any funny noises and the back is clean


When the compressor is running, if the fan by the compressor and the fan inside the freezer are both running, and there is no frost on the back wall of the freezer (if there was frost would indicate a defrost issue) then check the air dampener. It is located at the very top left back side of the fresh food section. If it is not opening up, no air will flow from the freezer compartment (where all the cooling takes place) into the refrigerator section.

Refrig and freezer not getting cold


HI, Can you hear the compressor running? Does it click like something is trying to start but can't? It sounds like the compressor is not running. The compressor should have a 5 year warranty. They are having problems with these compressors so, you might want to call Amana and see if it is under warranty. I hope this gives you some help. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
Thanks

Kitchenaid built-in refrig 15 yrs old cold freezer, warm fridge


it.s the frezer that makes the refer cold.the evap fan in the frezer moves that chilled air to the refer.if that fan is slow or any blockage inthe air ways it slows that process.Also the frezer should be close to 0 degrees if theres a defrost prob that would make fresh food warmer
