This will be your defrost thermostat, or your defrost heater. The defrost thermostat is a little snap on device attached to your evaporator line in your freezer which works in sequence with your defrost heater. You will need to use a heat gun or blow dryer to defrost your evaporator lines, then I would suggest replacing both parts just to be sure. Make sure your refrigerator is set on the factory settings when you are complete. Problem solved. Make sure your evaporator fan is on in the freezer before you put it all back together. Rate me if I am correct!

Freezer stays cool but bottom stays warm.


I agree with your analysis, and recommend that you replace that fan between the two sections.

Not cooling properly


Hello,

First thing- set the controls at the mid range of their settings. Next, check the coils under the fridge to see if they are clogged with dust, etc. Next, using a couple stem thermometers, determine the temps in the freezer and fresh food sections. In the fresh food section, place a tall glass of water on a shelf in the middle, put the thermometer in and let it set for awhile in the fridge. Inside the fresh food section, look for the damper opening at the top of the wall in between the two sections. Wet the back of your fingers- can you feel air blowing through the damper opening? Inside the freezer section, look at the back wall- any frost buildup there.

Hope this help.....

Older (20 to 25 years old) non-frost free Whirlpool refrigerator is not cooling below 60 degrees. I defrosted it and left it off with doors open in garage for 10 hours. Turned the cooler knob to 4...


Good day,
If it is a conventional refrigerator, there should be a cooling plate on the top back of the wall in the food section.
Assuming the door fits and closes properly, and the light goes out when the door closes, the plate described above should have a frost pattern on it. That is what cools the bottom fresh food section.
If left on for plus 12 hours normal cooling should exist.
If the plate is not frosted, and the machine runs constantly, you have a freon leak with no real practical repair possible.
You could recharge it, but it would be pricey, and just repeat the problem shortly.

Refrigerator stopped cooling


the problem is in your freezer !
open the back wall of your freezer and check if the fan working then if you see a big build up of ice. then its your heater unit or your heater thermostat. to check that it is the problem unplug the unit defrost the freezer coil with hair drier gently and when it done plug it again and see if your fridg get cool (1h or 2) then you know its the heater unit or the thermostat :(

This is one time you might need gas. Your freezer needs to be 20 degrees or less for the ice maker to work.

Freezer stuck on -20 degrees


well it depends on how long the door was open for during the cleaning, your evap coil was unable to cool the unit due to the warm air coming in, that will cause the evap coil to over frez . un-plugging the unit may work but the best thing to do is force it into a defrost you can do that by pressing and holding the ice key on the key pad for 10 sec or till you hear the freezer shut down this will thaw the ice on the coil and the unit with come back on within 20 to 30 Min's

Kenmore fridge and freezer not cooling


Check to see if there is any ice built up on the back wall of the freezer. If so thaw the ice and take the back wall out of the freezer. next check to see if the fan is running in the freezer (evaporator fan) This fan is what circulates the air from the freezer to the fridge. If it does run then you have a defrost problem (if ice is on the coils and back wall). Then replace defrost timer, heater, and thermostat.
