Hi,
Most often when you have this condition with a frost free fridge, you have one of two problems.
It could be a defrost problem. Look in back of the freezer. Is there a layer of frost against the back wall? If yes, you are Iced up. That would be either a defrost timer, heater, or termination thermostat.
The other thing it could be is the evaporater fan motor. Do you hear it running? It could be that the sound you heard was the fan blade hitting something. It may be jammed or the motor burned out.
Your fridge needs the air moved by this fan to make it cold. Thats why when you have ice blocking the coil, it makes your fridge warm.


Good luck

Frig not working freezer is great


If your fridge is old you maybe have a leak, crack, blockage in the fridge part...or at first step check your temp controls ...should be knobs in freezer as well as in bottom of fridge...sounds simple but overlooked at times. If fridge is a n older model especially if its located in a hot room it takes alot of freon and at times they are not equipped to get cold in extreme hot storage temps.

I moved my freezer to the shed 6 months ago as soon as the cold weather hits the freezer has stopped working. The light is on inside and out, defrost timer is working. I?m thinking thermostat or compressor


Freezers & Fridges were not designed to operate in extreme cold conditions. They are designed to operate at room temp. It could be sending an inaccurate temp signal to the thermostat due to extreme low temp outside.

Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Only the freezer is getting cold


This would indicate that the unit is short of refrigerant.

Freezer works great, as it should, but fridge is only keeping items room temp. I have the setting at the coldest setting: #7. What is wrong?


Here's what I did, I defrosted! I found out that the fridge temp is monitored and maintained by the freezer. Because we had a power outage one night, my freezer thawed while we all slept and then when power came back on, freezer re-froze but this cause an ice build up on the vent on the back wall of the freezer. Well, ice must have been in one (or more) vents, causing blocked air flow in my top half of the refrigerator. I turned the dial in the freezer to "off" which also shuts down power to the fridge half. I then unplugged the refrigerator, hauled all my food items into coolers, opened the freezer door and refrigerator doors and left them open for a little over six hours. I took advantage of this empty fridge and freezer and wiped everything down. After this time frame passed, I plugged the fridge back in, turned the freezer dial to my preferred freezer temp, and wah-lah! Within two hours I had a cold fridge and solid ice cubes in the freezer. I then put all my food items back into their appropriate compartments, and went to work. Bear in mind, a total 24-hour period is needed for the fridge to re-set itself, but still, after two hours the fridge was noticeably cold. Who knew, besides our parents' generation: DEFROST!
