My refrigerator is not cooling at the top on both sides both sides on the bottom is cold. its not blowing cool air from the freezer to the fridge and everything on the top is defrosted and has got to room...


Sounds like you have a frost blocked evaporator. That the term for a refrigerator which is not automatically defrosting. Unload the freezer, remove the shelves and the back wall out of the freezer, melt the frost with a hair dryer, replace the defrost heater at the bottom of the cooling coils and replace the white 1.5 inch long sensor at the top of the cooling coils.

Defrosting Tips for Your Fridge & Freezer

That way, you can use the fridge to keep foodstuffs frozen while you deal with the freezer.
Are you thinking of defrosting method for your freezer or fridge? Then check this out.
Always switch off and unplug the freezer before cleaning or defrosting.
Load the contents of your freezer into large dustbin bags and cover the bags with a duvet or blanket. The food should stay frozen for several hours. But use a cool box for ice cream or soup which melts quickly.
After defrosting, wash fridges and freezers with a solution of two teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda to 1 liter (2 pints) of warm water-it removes lingering smells.
Rub the inside of your freezer with glycerine, available from chemists, after it has defrosted. When you next have to defrost it, the ice will come away from the sides more easily.
Use a wet/dry vacuum cleaner to **** up any water left on the floor.
If you do not like defrosting, you can always pay more for a frost-free freezer which never needs it. www.victorwod1234.blogspot.com

After defrosting the freezer it will not cool


Don't panic about the hot sides of the freezer. It is quite common on all the freezer (make/model).

After defrosting, your removing the full temerature out of the system. It will take atleast 30 ~ 60 mins to come back to set temperature. This again depends on the load inside.

Icing up, not defrosting corretly in freezer. Frig not staying cold enough.


Your refrigerator problem is directly related to your icing up - excess frost / icing up, defrosting problems causes cooling problems.
To rule out other problems shut down your unit and MANUALLy defrost it using a blowdryer, get all that ice buildup melted as well as the evap coils in your freezer - once it is fully defrosted put back the panel and turn on - give it a couple of hours to cool - if it cools properly, it is a defrost problem. Hopefully too, this resets your controlboard.

If problem returns eventually, you have a defrost timer problem and will need to get it checked - it can be any of the defrost components, controlboard, defrost thermostat, etc.

Fridge does not get cold


I had the same problem. The problem was my freezer was not defrosting itself and for a while i opened up the back and manually defrosted the freezer with a hair dryer (to make it defrost faster) and lots of towels (to soak up all the water). I replaced the defrost heater in the freezer and no more problem. Go to searspartsdirect.com and put in your model # then look for the part. Hope this helps.

Defrost Problem


the first thing to check is the defrost heating element, then the defrost limit switch, if good, then its probably the main circuit board.

Refrigerator is not cooling, but freezer is working properly


Usually it's because it's not defrosting. If there is frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer, it's a defrost issue. Most of the time these fridge have a defrost issue, it's because the defrost heater is bad. If this is the case you can get by for a while by manually defrosting the fridge. Take everything out, turn it off, leave the freezer door open and let it sit for 24-36 hours.

FREEZER WORKING - FRIDGE NOT WORKING


Ok, got it sussed! [well here's what I did anyway]...

Quite simply, I turned off the fridge-freezer at the mains overnight and in the morning, broke and chucked out the ice chunks that had lined up in the bottom of the freezer section and then turned it back on. I returned that night to see that it was working fine again! Hallelujah, I got my fridge back!!

So it seems that all it needed was a good long defrost, so far so good! I hope this solves your problem.
