Refrig was clicking on and off now nothing not cooling
Now the freezer is working and the refrig is not, the damper in the refrig is open and air is blowing in the freezer but not the refrig. Is there another damper in the freezer, could this be a problem with the adaptive defrost module. Im totally confused now. With the freezer working it would seem the compressor is working, the clicking on and off has stopped but so has the refrig but not the freezer

check the damper vent door between the two compartments to make sure its open to let the cold air in from the freezer then make sure the evaporator fan is operating to help push air thru this door,sometimes these doors freeze shut or if its a motor driven vent door the motor could be bad too
Check that the damper vent that sends cold air from the freezer into the fresh food side is not blocked by contents. Check that the damper is opening to allow cool air to transfer. Put the fridge into diagnostic mode to check the thermistors.
You have your own answer there - You have overfrosting and icing up behind the freezer, this will affect proper cooling - also if you have seperate freezer and refrigerator controls, it's possible the damper is not opening properly to let the cool air in. But in your case it sounds like a defrost problem. You will need to have a service person inspect your control board and defrost timer components - sometimes it's as simple as a board replacement due to a burnt resistor these things are the most common causes.
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 .
There is a damper door that opens and closes when you move the thermostat. I would bet the door is functioning incorrectly. All the cooling of a refrig comes from the freezer and gets blown into the refrigerator compartment. If that damper door is open too far it will have constant freezer air blowing in....and if it's not open enough obviously the refrig will not get cool. Look at the upper left corner of your refrigerator, the center rear wall of the refrig or just feel around for a vent will cool air blowing out of it......Then take it apart and see if anything is broken.
If it has a damper at the top left wall , the damper is bad or the refrig control (possibly circuit board) is bad .The damper closes to reduce the air flow to the refrig yet the freezer section can still get colder if needed . The refrig control or circuit board for the fridge control , works the damper . If you feel air coming thru the damper , it is not closing , causing your food to freeze .
First Check the back wall of the freezer to see if you see frost building up or try to see if you can fill air going into the ref with the freezer door closed if not try opening the door if you fill it now then you have a defrost problem. IF you do not fill air either way it is either the damper door is not opening or the fan is not running
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
sounds like you have a defrosting iss\ue here, ther is aduct on the left sideof refig wall perhaps 3/4 the way down usually behind one of the crispers its frozen over with ice not allpwing fresh food air to properly circulate, l;ook to the bottom of your freezer on the back wall is there ice on the panel?? if so your not deforsting properly there satech sheet underthe kickplate showing basic wiring and trouble shoooting guide as well
Hi. As long as the evaporator motor is working its one of the two as you mentioned. If the compressor and evaporator fan is running and the refrigerator door has been open, with the freezer door closed, reach into the back left top where the diffuser is located and put your hand in front of it and see if any air is coming out. You should feel a moderate breeze. If not, open the freezer door with your hand in front of the diffuser and if the air comes out good now, the return air is blocked (normally ice build up). If no air is felt, the damper is most likely bad. Use a mirror and see if the damper is closed or frosted up. This can happen from the refrigerator or freezer door being left open for some time.If you have a mechanical damper, make sure it is set in the middle. You want more air to the refrigerator section.
