    Hi,

    As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

    If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

    Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Model # bx2255w Amana Refridgerator bottom freezer works but refridge isn't cooling any more. Is it time to retire our approx 15 year old fridge or is there an easy fix?


If you have high humidity or the door gets opened a lot, the evaporator coil may need a good defrosting. There are defrosting devices in the unit like the timer, heating coils, thermostats that could be bad. There should also be a small fan in the freezer that transfers the air to the refrigerator section. If that's not spinning only the freezer will work.

If you find the fan and it's working you can do a thorough manual defrost by removing the food, unplugging the unit and letting it set for a day with the doors wide open. Have some big towels handy :)

After a day, plug it in and see what it does (don't add food, yet). If it cools down then you will know that the compressor is still good and it's worthwhile to fix.

Easy fixes: Timer and fan.
Moderate fix (cheap part - more labor) - Defrost thermosat
Pain in the **** fix: Defrost heaters.

Kenmore refrigerator with bottom freezer. freezer works,refrig does not. Can you help me find the problem .Also, bar between the upper doors gets real hot.


I had this problem. The Evaporator fan in the freezer was working but no air would be circulated from the freezer into the refridgerator. To test this you open the door of the freezer, and depress the door button(s) of the upper refridgerator doors so that the light extinqueshes in the refridgerator. This will engage the evaporator fan in the freezer. You can check to see if air is venting from the freezer into the refridgerator by feeling the holes at the top most part of the multi-air flow channel in the refridgerator. If air is comming out when the freezer door is open, close the freezer door and feel if air has stopped. If you have kept the upper door buttons pushed in on the refridgerator and now have the freezer door closed, you should still hear the fan running, but may have not air flow with the freezer door closed. The cause of this is the air return channel from the refridgerator to the freezer is either frozen or clogged. My return-air channel was not frozen but clogged by a residue from something that spilled inside of the bottom of the refridgerator. The return-air channel has two vents in the rear-bottom of the refridgerator that exit into the freezer behind the evaporator (cooling coils). You can't see it even if the back interior panel is removed from the freezer compartment.

The bottom line here is that if air is prevented from moving from the refridgerator, back down to the freezer, then your refridgerator will not cool, but your freezer will work just fine. You will not need to replace the fan, unless the fan is not functioning. You may need to check the dampener, to ensure that your multi-air flow channel is open - (allowing air to come into the refridgerator). The multi-air flow channel is easy to remove once all of the shelves are removed from your refridgerator. Only 2 screws holding it in (securing the center rack top and bottom). The top screw is located behind a small plastic cover that can be removed.

That's what worked for me.

No air flow refrigerator not cooling


when you open freezer door do you hear the fan blowing,if not you have a bad evap fan motor,is there frozen droplets on the shelves,if so the door was left open and the air ducts are blocked with ice,you have to melt it out with hair dryer but watch out you can damage the wall parts from overheating,if you have another refridge. i would unplug it and melt it out that way,also next time send model number and i can look up your machine,on some models there is a damper door on the refridgerator side that could be faulty,also take out second from bottom food rack touch back wall.if there is ice or snow on wall you have a defrost problem,if you need more help send model number and let me know what you find
