Make sure the refrigerator is leaning back a little. Adjust the front legs a little higher. Then just the weight of the doors will cause them to close after the air is perged. there is a magnet in the gasket. This should cause the gasket to grab the door.

Refrigerator section stopped cooling, but the freezer section still works.


Hi. There is a valve in the top corner of the frigde that controls the cold Air to flow from the freezer to cool the fridge. This valve called a damper closes when the door is opened. You have to depress the door switch and listen for the fan in the freezer to switch on then feel for cold air to flow into the fridge compartment. The fan could have failed or the damper valve could be stuck closed.

I'm getting frost and ice build up on the bottom and back of the fridge compartment on my LG French door fridge.


To me This is on all Makes and models build up of frost means warmer humid air is entering into colder air this will cause a frost build up from entrance of warm air coming in so your looking at your air flow in all compartments of your ref,freezer so on.
blocked air will give false readings to sensors when compartment is asking for lower temp colder temp will be noticed.
bad or obstructed door seals door not closing properly
Follow your frost line it will point the way.

My ctf1826ar freezer works great but the fridge is not cooling. Nothing is frozen or blocked. When the freezer door is open there is cool air that comes our of the vents in the fridge but when it is...


the frig part not cooling though the freezer works is usually caused by bad air flow due to restriction somewhere. check ur vent settings and make sure not defective, the door rubber insulation may also be defective and not sealing properly after closing? and thus cool air escapes? but if ur feeling noticing air flow from the freezer but not in the fridge, the flow is obstructed, if the flow is off and on, do u notice the sound of the fan always running or does it go off and then on, it may be defective, the only time fan should go off is when in defrost mode?

Drain clogged on MCBR415S


Unless that fridge has an automatic defrosting cycle, NO water should be collecting at the drain area under normal circumstances. The only time that drain is needed is during defrosting (manual or auto).
Does the unit ever turn the cool cycle off or is the fridge always running (does the fridge ever stop humming)? If the fridge is always running, ice will build up in the fridge and it is either because the thermostat is broken or the door is not sealing properly allowing the cold air to escape. This can be due to something inside the fridge is preventing the door from closing properly, the door itself being not properly aligned with the fridge compartment, a broken door seal or a bend door or a bend fridge frame.
Ice can build up fast when a fridge is installed in an area with high humidity (like in Florida) and the door is opened frequently (like every 5 minutes to get a beer out, like during a house party).
If the fridge door seems to seal properly and the fridge seems to keep things cool, it might be enough to defrost the fridge to get it back in proper operating condition.
When loading the fridge, allow enough space between items, to permit the air to circulate.
Good luck :)

Fridge problem- How to check everything http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php
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. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp .
OR
.
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.

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.


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.


Door problem-The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

THE FREEZER IS WORKING BUT NO COLD AIR IE GOING INTO THE REG. The fan on the back of the unit is working. It has been in the garage so it is not froze up. Any ideas. It is a Kenmore Elite Trio


The problem is that the damper isn't working properly. It is supposed to open and close to send cold air from the freezer to the fridge. Open the door to the fridge, and look for the vent, close the door switch, and see if you can feel cold air coming out of the vent.

Either the motor that controls the damper is broken (most common) or the control board that sends power to the door to open and close as necessary is not sending power.

Fridge not cold


I think that I have a solution. Refridgerator side not cooling.
I read in the blogs that holding down the top two bottons(power cool & fridge) at the same time resets the refridgerator control panel.

I may have caused the problem by leaving the door open. If my above solution does not work, then I will defrost the frefrigerator just in case the coils are froze up. It works with my air conditioner.

Doors not sucking closed


This is not a fault but it is a design problem that cannot be resolved, the problem occurs because between the fridge and the freezer there is an air duct to allow the freezer air to be blown into the fridge however when you close the fridge door this forces the air back into the fridge, the result is that it is forced into the air duct and pressurises the freezer or visa versa and pops the door open to allow the compressed air to escape. soory no cure to this one.
