Can you tell me why please?

All the big cooling happens inside freezer compartment. Freezer gives little cool air to fridge compartment. Now when the vent blocks that little cold air cannot go into fridge compartment. Thus your freezer works good but not fridge compartment. Milk goes bad but frozen meet keeps good.....

Vent freeze up either due to defrost problemt, defrost drain line problem, Evaporator fan problem or even can be your damper motor not opening due to unit failure or frozen damper door.

Refrigerator and freezer not cool

Try unplugging the fridge for a day or two and then plug it back in and see if it starts working. If the refrigerator has froze inside and the defrost system is not working, letting it thaw out for a day or two may bring it back to life, until it freezes again. The fan inside the fridge must circulate air, it must be working or it will allways freeze up and not cool.
The fan and compressor must also be working underneath the fridge. When working properly, one of the lines from the compressor will feel hot and the other cool off. The radiator coil must not be clogged and air should flow freely thru it with the fan running.

Without more details as to how old it is and what kind of condition it is in, I would recommend you have it looked at by a refrigeration professional.

When a fridge is no longer cooling, the main culprits are clogs caused by frozen sections of the air circulation path, refrigerant leaks and faulty compressors. A professional technician can diagnose both. If the compressor is bad, refrigerant is not changing phases (which causes the cooling to occur). If there is a leak, there is not enough refrigerant to compress and the fridge will never cool.

Sometimes the fan is faulty, so the cold air will not circulate into the fridge.

Since your fridge has been sitting, you likely do not have any clogs caused by freezing. If your freezer side works but not the fridge, you either have dual compressors (and the fridge compressor is bad) or you have blockage in the air circulation path. There is also a very slim chance that the light inside your fridge is remaining on and generating heat.

HI, since the unit still has power, this will rule out any capacitor issues and failed evap/condenser assembly as well. The most likely issue here is that the compressor has failed.

There are many components that will cause this failure and, here is a run down.


Starter device component
Compressor relay & overload component
PTC Relay
Compressor tank.

If this fridge is a bit up in its age, i would recommend purchasing a new thermostat and, i would also recommend purchasing a complete compressor replacement kit. this kit has every component and part you will need to restore the cooling abilities of your fridge. it will fix this issue.

The compressor kit will cost $262.00 and the thermostat will cost $55.95.

Please rate and god bless:)
