Re: freezer not working, air is blowing into the freezer
As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

The port in the back of the freezer is frozen shut. You will need to unplug the refrigerator, empty the freezer, and remove the back panel to expose the coil. You may also want to remove the tray in the freezer floor. Melt all of the ice with a hair dryer so air can be blown into the refrigerator again.
While melting the ice, check that the water is draining through the port under the coils. If not, this port needs to be thawed as well, otherwise the ice will block the ports again.
When everything is dry and the water drains again, reassemble the freezer panels. Plug in the refrigerator and make sure the freezer fan runs. You should be able to feel air blowing into the refrigerator compartment if you hold your hand in front of the port. If the fan does not blow, you will need to troubleshoot and possibly replace it.
Check the fan in the refrigerator section, see if it's blowing air.
Next is the thermostat which you've probably already tried changing. Either one of these could have ice buildup making them not work correctly, so take everything out of the unit and use a house fan blowing into the refrigerator section to melt things out for a couple days. A hair dryer used on the areas will speed things up, but there's a risk of shock. Also the fan or thermostat may need to be replaced. (put your food items in another freezer/refrigerator as they will thaw and warm up within the time it will take for you to try to melt the ice out.)
The fact that the freezer is still working means that your compressor is working and the system isn't out of Freon.
fan is not blowing cold air.... open freezer section and hold in buttons that tell it door is closed and see if you hear a fan running, if you do maybe duct to freezer is froze uo with ice...thaw it out and recheck or replace fan
The refrigerator half of a refrigerator/freezer does not produce any cold! The refrigerator is cooled by transferring air from the freezer to the fridge. The fridge temperature setting controls a flapper between the freezer and the fridge. There should be a fan which blows air from the freezer into the fridge (through the damper).
If the ice forming in the freezer is concealing the cooling coil and air can not move through the coils, then the overall result will be a warm freezer (even though there may be ice in one location) and a warmer yet fridge. This can be tested by unplugging the fridge and allowing a complete thaw. If the ice is the cause of the problem, then it should work for a short while until it freezes up improperly again
the defrost heater or thermostat circuitry is bad,you need to test both components,also the defrost timer control if the other parts test o.k..,the defrost tstat has to be below 32 degrees or it will test bad/open,when the evaporator coil gets iced up you cannot blow cold air through a solid block of ice,(NO air flow)means no cold air throughout the unit even with the evaporator fan running
Theory of operation: Cold air is produced in the freezer section and is then circulated via a fan located in the freezer section. It sounds like you may have either an air leak from faulty door seals, ice dispenser door flap stuck in the open position, or the light staying on the door is closed.
A faulty compressor fan may also cause symptoms like that but you should hear the thermal cut out clicking off and on due overheating of the compressor.
Why not do a quick thaw and move the frozen goods over to the firdge for a few minutes and grab a blow dryer. This should give a temporary fix until you can pin point the problem. Be kind to me please with a Thumbs up. I am a long ways away and can only help a little. Raz
the fan in the freezer is not working to blow the cold air in the freezer you need a new fan you need a repair man it will cost you $300 good luck i have the same problem don't buy samsung they are useless that why home depot don't sale samsung
You can use a hairdryer on the frozen parts.
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper)
between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through
it.There is a flap you adjust with the
fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the
fridge temp ..
have oiyu ried to thaw it out then plus it back in? also is there anything that could be blocking the air at all? The easiest way to thaw a freezer is to take a shop vac and turn the air around and blow it on the coils to thaw out the ice. go ahead and make sure t=hat its cpompletely thawed out them turn back on and check the air flow afrom the fan after its ran a little bit. Don't rae until your problem has been resolved then rate the best solutions please. Thanks for using FixYa.
