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.

Inside strip of fridge is very hot. cleaned out behind fridge and the coils, etc. fan is barely moving/not moving. any suggestions???


Replace the fan. The strip has a freon line running behind it, and when it is hot, this tells us that you have a dirty condensor, bad condensor fan motor, bad evaporator fan motor, defrost problem, or a freon system problem. When you say your fan is barely moving, I am assuming this is your condensor fan motor, which sucks air through the hot freon lines in the condensor coils, and cools the freon off. If it is barely moving, it can't cool the freon. In some brands a slow moving condensor fan can be caused by a bad main control board. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Freezer not freezing, and the panel between the fridge and the freezer gets very hot


The condensor fan motor is probably not running. The condensor fan keeps the compresor cooled, if the compresor gets to hot, it shuts down until it cools off and tuns back on, but will not keep temp. Heat exchange lines go in the panel between the doors to serve as a heater so the doors dont freeze shut, but when the compresor overheats, so do those lines. That would be why that panel gets so hot. Both problems will be resolved with a new condensor fan motor ( located by the compresor).

Hot center strip


when the center mullion is hot then it means your units condensor fan motor is out. the fan is located by the compressor. this fan keeps the condensor coils cooled off. if the fan is not running then the unit vents through the cabinet.

The center of the fridge between the freezer and fridge is so hot you cant touch it whats wrong should I call a repair person ? thank you for any help


HI, this is a sign the fridge isn't cooling proper. Check and see if there is frost building up on the rear panel of the freezer. Check and see if the evaporator or the condensor fan motors are running. Check and see if the compressor is running.
Pleasae let me know if I can assist you fyrther.

Door inner edges Hot (center)


This area is called the mullion and should be a little warm so it doesn't sweat. If it is too hot then two things could be the problem. 1. The condensor is plugged (dirty) and needs to be swept out. 2. The condensor fan motor is not working. This cools the condensor coils and is mounted in the back of the fridge behind the bottom panel.

Koolatron Mini Fridge Overheating


Check the condensor fan behind the fridge which is designed to cool the compressor/gas line by blowing air over the condensor. When this fan motor seizes or stops running, the gas gets very hot and because it is skin cooled too, the outside of the fridge also gets very hot. You can overcome the problem temporarily by putting a standing fan behind the fridge, blowing onto the compressor and under the fridge untill you can have the problem rectified.

Trio: humming and temp in freezer rising


It sounds like the condensor fan motor is seizing up. This is the fan that cools the compressor down. Does the outside of the fridge feel excessively hot to touch? Can you feel air being circulated under the fridge or behind the fridge? It could also be a faulty defrost timer. Try to identify where the buzzing is coming from and if it is the condensor fan you can put a normal standing fan behind the fridge, blowing onto the compressor untill the repairman can get to you.
