Check for frost on the back wall of the freezer section. If there is frost there your problem is defrost related to a timer or defrost heaters. I say this because you indicated it still makes ice cubes which indicates it is still working to some degree. Check the condenser for cleanliness and clean if necessary. Under the refrigerator front behind toe plate and /or in back behind removable panel.

What would cause the airflow to stop to fridge when freezer door is closed? (kenmore model 106)


Ice in the path of air flow to fridge. The freezer also kkeps the fridge cold via a fan that blows the cold air from feezer to fridge.

My maytag fridgerator has suddenly stopped getting cold. My freezer is fine and stays cold. Troubleshooting it did not work. Please help.


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

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 and eventually affect the freezer too.

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 In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.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.

Could be that you have a bad freezer (defrost) thermostat and it is not "shutting off" after a defrost. Do you feel heat (DON'T touch the panel) near the bottom rear panel inside the freezer? Also, could be a Adaptive Defrost control problem.

Well first of all solution # 1 pertains to household refridgerators..RV models have no fan inside maybe outside,But I would find out if it gets cold/freezes with 120 volt and or LP(propane) and look trrough the internet and download your model service manual.

GE profile refrigerator line freezes, fan blows but no cold air?


OK, I think I understand. Thing is we need to do a few things to see if your control board is the problem or if the fan or a freon leak is the answer. You need to tell me if this began suddenly or if over a period of time. I have been having trouble lately from Fixya if the customer (YOU) responds to my solutions. Let me know if you want my help and I will see if I get a email letting me know of your response, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Camper fridge dont cool


I also had the same Model Make. I removed my fridge and placed it upside down, occasionally shaking fridge within a 24 hr period. This seemed to re-mix the ammonia solution and the fridge is working.
This may work for you but look for yellow stains if you see any your fridge is leaking and would require repair.

All of a sudden stopped getting cold in the fridge portion, freezer is fine


If you completely defrost the freezer and restart the unit and it doesn't get cold in the refrig portion it could be the internal fan that moves cold air from the freezer to the frig area if it does get cold after an hour or so then it is probably the defrost coil needs replacing. I am not familar with your exact model but this senario applies to many different units.
