Refrigerator side not cooling, but feezer is still freezing


DEFROST HEATERS IN THE FREEZER. IF THERE IS FROST ON THE BACK WALL INSIDE THE LOWER AREA OF THE FREEZER SECTION. YOU THEN HAVE A DEFROST PROBLEM. THE HEATER IS THE MOST COMMON. REMOVE THAT PANEL AND DEFROST WITH HAIR DRYER. THIS FROST IS BLOCKING THE AIR FLOW TO THE REF. SIDE. AFTER THIS IT WILL WORK FOR 10-21 DAYS WITH OUT REPLACING THE DEFROST HEATER. 95 PERCENT CHANCE. JUST REPLACE THE HEATER SOON AFTER DEFROSTING SO YOU DONOT HAVE TO DO IT AGAIN.

Check rear wall of freezer by feel for frost. Heavy, even frost indicates likely problem in the defrost system. Unplug unit. Defrost heater (in freezer behind rear wall panel), defrost thermostat (same area-must be checked at freezer temperature) or Defrost timer-located lower back outside of unit. Near compressor. Do continuity test on heater and defrost thermostat and if they show continuity (good), replace defrost timer. If not, replace the one that tests bad.

Defrost coils fully. Reassemble.

Please let me know if I have helped with comments and rating.

Refrigerator will work about 7-10 days after being defrosted until thick frost builds up again cutting off air flow to both compartments

Fridge not staying cool, freezer still freezing


The defrost thermostat on the defrost heater is probably bad, it's a good place too start.

The fridge part of my fridge freezer appears to have stopped working


Look to the freezer for your problem. Frost free refrigerators are cooled by air from the freezer compartment. If the freezer cooling coil freezes up air flow to the refrigerator is lost. Look for signs of frost on back wall of the freezer section.

Located the defrost timer, turn the clutch head screw clockwise SLOWLY until you hear one audible click. The system will then be in the defrost mode. During the 18-22 minutes of the defrost cycle heaters are energized and defrost should take place. If defrost happens and the timer does not restart into the cooling mode, rotate the screw one more time SLOWLY to the second click and the system will restart in the cooling mode. Replace the timer in this case.

If the timer restarts the cooling after the defrost period and defrost does not happen your problem is in the defrost heaters or defrost thermostat. They are located inside the back wall of the freezer on the cooling coil.

REFEGERATOR NOT GETTING COLD


Sounds like a defrost problem or dirty coils under the machine. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/control board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
