Why is it that my refrigerator does not get cold and my freezer is not making ice


SOUNDS LIKE YOU EVAPORATOR FAN HAS EITHER SEIZED----REPLACE; OR WAS BANGING ON ICE AND FINALLY STOPPED ---DEFROST

Tip

Simple thing you can do if the ref is not getting cold enough.


1. Defrost the freezer if you see ice on the inside wall.
This is a very common problem. Before you call a technician do this.
Defrost the freezer completely, and when you put the items back, make sure that the vent are not being blocked. The fan needs to circulate the air inside the freezer to keep it from having frost. Ice build up causes circulation problem which causes the ref and even the freezer to not get cold enough. Since the thermostat senses that it is not getting cold enough the refrigerator runs constantly and producing even more frost. Then the owner turns the refrigerator to coldest setting which actually do not help, or maybe make the problem even worse, all the while running up the electric bill as well. So there you go.

Freezer not freezing properly


You have a manual defrost freezer . Ice build up of over 1/2" can act like insulation on wires . If you have no frost build up , and runs constantly , then compressor or refrigerant leak is the problem . Advise to replace freezer . Only 2 parts on manual defrost freezer...compressor and cold control . Compressor will not run if bad cold control . If you have a leak , very expensive to have repaired .

if the freezer is getting cold the problem is due to the cold air from the freezer not getting into the refrigerator. There are several things that can cause this problem. The coils in the freezer icing up and not defrosting properly is one of the things that can cause the refrigerator not to get cold enough. Another problem is the fan that blows the cold air from the freezer compartment into the refrigerator, not working. When the compressor is running open the refrigerator's door and push the switch that makes the light go out. You should hear the fan blowing the cold air from the freezer into the refrigerator, when this switch is pushed in. If the fan is working then you will need to find what is blocking the air flow. Iced up coils are a common problem. The icing problem can be due to a defective defrost timer or something defective in the defrost circuit. Click here for more information. Check for these problems and let me know what you have found.

New Frigidaire side by side running constantly and still warm


If the frost build up is on the back panel of the freezer then it has a defrost problem which causes a no cool situation. Let me know more about this frost buildup and what you have done.
