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...

My freezer frosted over everything because the door was not shut tight and now it will not clear.


take out all the food out of the freezer,unplug the fridge and get a hair dryer and start melting out all the ice in the freezer,then blow the hot air into the vent holes on the back wall until you don't see any more water dripping down through the slots in the back wall.turn the machine back on,open the fridge door after around 5 or 10 minutes and if you feel cold air blowing into the fridge you fixed the problem,if you don't feel cold air keep hitting the inside back wall with the hair dryer and keep blowing the hot air into the holes in the back wall.all that it does is the freezer gets cold and there's a fan behind the back wall in the freezer,the fan blows the cold air into the fridge side,if the air ducts are frozen the air can't circulate into the fridge section so you have to melt the ice out so the cold air can blow from the freezer to the fridge.good luck,if you have another fridge remove the food and unplug it and leave the doors open for a day and it will melt out.good luck

Fridge Not Working


Your problem could be one of the following:

* compressor
* attachments to compressor (e.g.: relay, capacitor (if applicable) or overload protector)
* refrigerant (e.g.: restriction or leak)
* temperature control assembly

Contact an appliance service company.

Refrige and freezer do not get cold. Freezer is all iced up.


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

My bottom refrigerator is not cold. The freezer is okay.


Check to make sure the fan in the freezer compartment is working and not blocked. This delivers the cold air to the refrigerator. The fan should run every time the freezer calls for cold.

Refridgerator and freezer no longer cold!


Try disconnecting the fridge for a few minutes and then listen for the compressor to come on not just the fans.

Fridge and freezer not getting cold



  • You have 2 fans Make sure your top fan is working ,its located inside the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked.With out a fan you have no circulation .Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.

Fridge/ Freezer not cold


My fridge started making a weird noise not too long ago. Now the fridge isn't cold and everything in the freezer is melting. The read out still says that everything is the right temp, but the melted ice tells me otherwise. Recently my daughter found out how to operate the buttons and has been pushing them a lot, but we change them quickly.

I would have the refrigerator / freezer checked out by a serv tech mainly because if it is a compressor, this would not be something that can be done by as customer, but it could be something internal like a fan or a fan motor that blows the cold air or a bad thermostat or sending unit – the weird noise is something internal that really should be check out by a serv tech before you lose everything as far as food, etc. – the refrigerator is a sealed unit and is hard for a customer to service unless they have serviced the unit before.
