Sounds like a defrost problem. remove back freezer panel and look for ice on coils which restricts air to the Ref.
Take your mod number to an appliance parts store and they will sell the parts to fix the defrost system. Most all parts are in behind freezer Panel at the coils.

Hi, I have a Zanussi ZBB28440SA integrated fridge freezer, the fridge section is no longer cooling yet the freezer seems fine? Any help would be great!


unsure as to what problem might be , but refrigerators at 16 degrees would be freezing things solid here in the US if you are suggesting the temp is in centigrade them perhaps the damper motor controller has failed on it and you need to seek professional help to replace it

Amana ASD2620HRB Side-by-Side freezer running, but not freezing. What could cause this?


What is running? The important motor is the compressor - the one that works with the refrigerant to supply cooling. If it is not running you can check the start relay/capacitor. If they are good, make sure that electricity is reaching the motor windings. If the thermostat stays open, the compressor will not be activated.
If compressor is running and if there is ice buildup on the evaporator behind the back panel, then the self defrost mechanism is not working - could be you have an open heater coil. If you completely defrost the refrig for a day and then plug back in, if it works fine, then it is definitely ice buildup which serves as an insulator and prevents cold air from reaching the refrigerator portion.

Whirlpool Model # ETClCHMXK009... Freezer is freezing but refrigerator is not cooling well...


Hi

If refrigerator is not cooling properly it can be due to a defrost timer, which is causing the fridge to go into defrost cycle. Usually it takes 45-60 minutes for refrigerator to come out of defrost cycle. If the timer is bad then it will not come out of defrost cycle and can result in this kind of issues. It can also occur due to defrost thermostat, it allows current to pass through it at temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit and prevents current from passing through it at 40 to 60 degrees. This is difficult to test, though, because it takes a prolonged, very-cold temperature to turn it on. The defrost thermostat is snapped onto the top portion of the evaporator. The thermostat sends temperature information to the processor. The defrost heater must be replaced when replacing the thermostat.
1. Remove the lower fan duct work from the evaporator cover.
2. Remove the 1/4-in. evaporator cover screws and remove the evaporator cover.
3. Disconnect the defrost thermostat wiring connector.
4. Remove the defrost thermostat from the evaporator.

Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Refrigerator not cooling properly


evap. coil could possible be frosting up due to a defrost problem, this would keep the evap. fan from blowing air into ref. section. it also could be a bad evap. fan motor or it could be that the ref. inside light bulb could be staying on due to a bad light switch ,you would be surprisedhow much heat a 40 watt bulb produces

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator too cold


On a fridge freezer only the fridge temperature is monitored. In a cold location the fridge might not even need cooling and the freezer would get too warm but the thing won't care.

If the fridge sensor sees it as too warm then it will keep the motor running and the first thing to get really cold is the freezer.

Remember the freezing part is not temperature controlled ion a fridgefreezer.

Frezzer is fine but fridge is warm


See if cold air is coming out of the air diffuser top-back freezer side of fridge. A common problem is a bad air diffuser assembly. Sometimes it may freeze closed and break when it tries to cycle. The freezer usually works fine.
