Emerson compact fridge with freezer compartment freezer is very cold fridge nothing just warm is there any fan to blow air>> thanks


Your freezer fan unit may be frozen behind the inside wall and therefore not circulating the cold air down.
Se if you can remove the screws and back wall to check the fan unit.
Not all modeles can be repaired this way

Bosch kann58a50gb/o8 fridge not cooling freezer seems ok


See or hear if the fan inside is working. Im not conversant with your model. Some units have 2 fans , 1 in the freezer and 1 in the fridge. Some only have1 , which will be in the freezer only. If the fan fails, the fridge cannot blow cold air into the food compartment. Generally, when an evaporator fan fails, the fridge doesn't get cold and the freezer overfreezes causing an excess ice buildup in the freezer.

Why is the fridge and freezer not cold enough


If the fan isn't running neither section will be cold enough. There may be something jammed against the fan blade or the motor could be defective.

Fridge Freezer not cold


Is there a fan inside the freezer compartment to direct cold air to the fridge? Check it's working. If not fanned, check rear wall of fridge. If not cold, unit may be short of gas.

Princess series model FN66011S The refrigerator does not change temp.it remains warm...freezer does freeze. Is this a fixable problem?


HI!!

The little fan inside the freezer is the one in charge of blowing cold air into the fridge area, the freezer control (thermostat), regulates how cold it should get, and the Refrigerator control regulates how much of this cold air goes to the fridge compartment. It is important to keep the door gasket clean at all times in order to have a good thight seal.

Check:

1.- That the freezer and fridge controls are set correctly, acording to manufacturers specs. (a common problem arises when by accident, the temp. controls are moved out of preset adjusment.

2.- That the fan is working and sounds strong, (If you keep the freezer door open for a couple of minutes, you should hear and see the motor kiking in.)

3.- Find the vent(s) in the fridge compartment and feel if cold air is coming thru when fan is working. If fan is working and blows no air, Take the freezer's back panel off, (4 hexhead screws) just enough to see inside and check if the evaporator (radiator looking component) is covered with ice, blocking the flow of air towards the fridge compartment, if it is, your defrost thermostat and-or timer are defective.

Your temp control for the fridge when you first start it, should be a bit higher than the one for the freezer. (the freezer should be in the low-middle range.) This control is nothing but a actuator for a door that controls the flow of air from the freezer. The bigger the number, the wider the door opens, and the colder the fridge gets.

Once the system is stable, let's say the next day, you can re-adjust your controls, (don't expect an inmediate change right away, change one digit a the time and check again next day) If you set your fridge too high and the freezer too low, the freezer may loose coldness and the problem would invert.

Good Luck!!!

Simpson fridge stopped working. The freezer still goes but not the fridge part. At the time the power fuse box overloaded (around the same time as the fridge died). Not sure if that was connected but power...


Hi,

If this is a standard upright fridge (freezer at top), then the usual principle applies: cold air drops.

A small fan (situated between freezer & fridge) should be functioning, which forces cold air from the freezer, down into the refridgerator.

I would recommend you first determine if this small fan is operating (this is the noise you would normally hear, when you open the freezer door) and if not, then replace the fan.

If fan is working, then I would suspect a faulty thermister which would require a technician.

With repairs of older devices, it's always best to obtain quotes first, as often the cost of repair could well amount to up to 40% of the price of a new one.

Good luck...
