A model number would be of assistance in trouble shooting your problem. Check the condenser and make sure it is clean and the fan motor runs when the compressor runs. If the compressor gets overheated it will cycle off on its thermal protector. Allow time for it to cool off before restarting it. You did not give the age of the refrigerator. If it has a lot of years of runtime on it the compressor may be done working.

We have got water coming out at the bottom of the freezer of our fridgidair FRC170FF how do i fix it?


1. Your freezer may be not cold enough so water does not freeze.
2. Your freezer may leak so warm air goes into the freezer and keep the temperature higher than freezing temperature.

Is it normal for warm air to blow out of the fan at the top of a side by side sub zero. Its over 20 years old and we recently had the compressor replaced on the freezer side.


warm air will blow out from the condenser fan which is in the same area as the compressor.
There should be no warm air inside the freezer of fridge.

My heater blowing cool air want blow warm or hot air


check top and bottom hose for heat if the top hose hot and bottom hose cold the thermostats not opening,or you may have a leak from a hose or water pump, maybe only a small leak but that would cause the system to lose pressure and lose heat from your heater at worst the head gasket may have blown

Hello,

Check the hose under your fridge that drains condensation and such into a catch tray. Make sure the hose is draining properly.
Blow air through the tube to make sure it is not clogged. A coat hanger wire can be inserted to break up clogs. An alternative method is to use a bicycle pump to force air through the drain hole to remove any obstruction. Vacuum dust bunnies from under the fridge to allow free flow of the air. Most refrigerators periodically blow warm air across the condensation tray. The warm air dries the condensation in the tray.

Good luck......

The freezer side does not freeze on the top shelf. The refrigerator freezes everything in the bottom but reads 47 degrees and doesn't cool the top shelves. The fan under the fridge runs fine.


Behind the back wall of the freezer about halfway down, probably behind the light bulb (if there is one there) there is a fan. My guess is that the fan isn't working, or is slow. To test, open the freezer door, then hold the door switch closed and listen for the fan.

This fan should be blowing air up the back of the freezer, and send some of the cold air through a vent at the top of the freezer into the fridge. The air then descends through the fridge and reenters the freezer through a vent at the bottom. If the fan is broken, or if the upper vent is somehow blocked or broken, the cold air will enter (rather than exit) the fridge side at the bottom vent. Because cold air tends to descend and warm air rises, the cold air will freeze the stuff at the bottom of the fridge, and the thermostat (at the top of the fridge) will say it is warm.

The dehumidifier is blow cold air


Is it collecting water? The air coming out the back top half should be cool/warm. It will be a little warmer at the bottom near the compressor.

Heater blows cold air from top vents after running for 1.3 hours


Sounds like you may be able to fix it by flushing your antifreeze and back flushing the heater core. Some car owners cheep out and put stop leak into the antifreeze, others dont change there antifreeze at all. Both are mistakes.
