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...

I have a stainless steel top freezer ice make. the freezer seems t somewhat works but my refrigerator stopped getting cold. what should i do?


Check the fan in the refrigerator section, see if it's blowing air.
Next is the thermostat which you've probably already tried changing. Either one of these could have ice buildup making them not work correctly, so take everything out of the unit and use a house fan blowing into the refrigerator section to melt things out for a couple days. A hair dryer used on the areas will speed things up, but there's a risk of shock. Also the fan or thermostat may need to be replaced. (put your food items in another freezer/refrigerator as they will thaw and warm up within the time it will take for you to try to melt the ice out.)
The fact that the freezer is still working means that your compressor is working and the system isn't out of Freon.

Why are frozen bread items and small cups of ice cream thawing in freezer and not other things?


Ice cream requires a min. temp of 28 deg. you're most likely at about 30 or 31.

  1. make sure your air flow vents are free of ice in the freezer.
  2. turn up your temp control
  3. pull out fridge and clean and vac the rear coils and the motor area. make sure to clean the fan blades
this should do it mike

Does it make sense that a frigidaire plhs67egsb3 refrigerator freezer could stop working simply from overloading? The compressor is running, the condenser coil was clean but the evaporator coil was frozen...


the defrost heater or thermostat circuitry is bad,you need to test both components,also the defrost timer control if the other parts test o.k..,the defrost tstat has to be below 32 degrees or it will test bad/open,when the evaporator coil gets iced up you cannot blow cold air through a solid block of ice,(NO air flow)means no cold air throughout the unit even with the evaporator fan running

I have a 19-year-old Kenmore top freezer refrigerator (model #1069610513). The freezer seems fine, but the fridge is warm. It was fine last night but when I opened it this morning the milk felt like room...


You might be developing an ice dam in the bottom tray of thr freezer that is obstucting the flow of cold air to the refigerater part of the unit. remove frozen items so you can see the bottom tray and see if you notice an exccesive amount of frosting on said floor tray, if so you are probably experiancing a defrosting problem.Check to see if you can feel cold air coming in from the top back section of the refrigerator. There is a fan that blows across the coils in the freezer section under the floor tray, if you cant feel the air either your fan has quit or you are froze shut.You can try a temp fix by removing food items to a cooler with ice or another unit and unplugging this one and letting it thaw out, be sure and put down a towl or two on the floor the tawing ice will go to the evaporater tray underneath and overflow once its thawed plug it back in and let it cool down. Check again to see if you can feel air in the frig. if you cant your fan has quit, you need to seek local appliance tech help they should be able to get you going for a fairly inexpencive amount.

have oiyu ried to thaw it out then plus it back in? also is there anything that could be blocking the air at all? The easiest way to thaw a freezer is to take a shop vac and turn the air around and blow it on the coils to thaw out the ice. go ahead and make sure t=hat its cpompletely thawed out them turn back on and check the air flow afrom the fan after its ran a little bit. Don't rae until your problem has been resolved then rate the best solutions please. Thanks for using FixYa.
