Remove and test the fan. If it has failed the Compressor may not run.

Rangemaster sxs cream . Why is my fridge and freezer the same temp ???? If anybody could give me an answer or solution.

MOST refrigerators get there cold from the freezer side and circulate it via a fan that's also normally inside the freezer. There are three motors normally in a refrigeration system. The inside Evaporator fan motor that circulates air across the evaporator coil inside the box, the Condenser fan motor near the compressor that cools the freon after compression, and the compressor itself. If you open the doors (and sometimes you may have to hold in the door switches) do you hear a fan running? If not you could have a couple things going on: 1. The fan(s) has failed. 2. The freezer Evap coil may of iced over and the fan too is frozen stopped. 3. Your condensing unit:(compressor, condenser fan, condenser coils) has a problem.
It is important to know if the compressor itself is running. If there is a loose connection to the compressor via the start/over load relay (normally attaches directly onto the compressor), or if the start/over load otself is bad the compressor will not run. Best way to tell is via gauges but I doubt your frig has ports. Check to see if your compressor is really hot. Could be bad start/over load relay or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off even though fan continues to run. The fact your fan is running TYPICALLY means the thermostat is calling for lower temps and the fan/compressor kick in together.

I have a whirpool S/S frig that is not cooling or freezing. Model number ED5GTNXMQ00. the compressor appears to be running, there is no ice buildup behind the freezer panel, fans are running, power is on...

If you are not very familiar with the sound of a running compressor, the condenser fan may fool you into thinking that it is the compressor running. If you know how to troubleshoot, check the status of the compressor. If it is not running, check the starting relay and the capacitor. You may have to replace one or both of them.

Frig won't cool RM2652

You'll need to get in touch with the store you bought it from but Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

My Kenmore refrigerator model # 253.7419240p the freezer works perfect but the fridge part is very warm i had milk in it over night and it spoiled... what can i do to fix this i can not go without a fridge...

the fact that the freezer is still cold is a good thing as that means the compressor is still running, and probably at least the condensor fan also that is beneath the frig/freezer near the compressor.
check that the fan in the rear of the freezer is running when the compressor is on, if so then your issue may be a pluged or blocked air passageway that interconnects the freezer compartment with the frig to cool it. this will need to be chased down and located to remedy
if the fan is not running you will need to find out if there is power to the fan, if so the fan is shot and can be replaced, if not then we need to find out why. broken wire between the defrost timer is a possibility, even a bad connection through a moly plug could cause it.
hope this helps,
best of luck,

Fan underneath frig is running but no cold air is coming into the frig or freezer

The fan that is under the frig is the condensor fan(the fan the cools the condenser coils and the compressor. It does not have a direct effect on the chilled air circulation inside of the frig. The evaporator fan is the unit that circulates the chilled air thru your freezer and frig. I am not sure what make model unit you have, but I have found that this fan motor is 90% of the circulation problems i have seen.

Refrigerator Compressor does not start

Is your freezer below your frig, like a drawer. If so does it still freeze the food. if this fact is true, then listen with the freezer drawer open to hear if the freezer fan is running. If it is running and your freezer is working then it could possibly be that fan that is the problem. This fan circulates the chilled air from the evaporator coil thru the freezer and the refrigerator. This problem is very hard to diagnose as the fan still spins but not fast enough to circulate the chilled air thru the freezer and frig. The minimum cost is around $300.00 if a service company does it. But if you can do it then you can possibly get the fan motor for around $80.00. This repair is very labor intensive as the access to the electrical connection is at the extreme rear of the freezer compartment.

Fan running,both cold settings at 4 , freezer 14 degrees C

you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.

Help frig not cooling model # FRT21LR7A


You have to replace the electrical components on the side of the compressor. The heat from the fan not running by the compressor more than likely has damaged them. These are a safety feature to save the compressor from damage when it overheats.

You can find the factory repair manual here. This will have all the part numbers and what you need to replace to take care of your refrigerator. The Top Freezer Refrigerator one will be about your machine. It covers all the FRT Models.
