I have a side by side whirlpool fridge and the freezer is fine but the fridge is now freezing everything. It's about 11 years old.


Since you stand to loose all the food I would call a service tech ASAP. But here are the most common reasons for the problem you have.
Cause 1
The Evaporator Coils are Frosted Over The defrost heater assembly turns on a few times throughout the day to melt away any frost that may have accumulated on the evaporator coils. If the defrost heater assembly is defective, frost will continue to accumulate on the evaporator coils, and the coils will become plugged with frost. If the evaporator coils are frosted over, the airflow through the coils will be restricted, causing the refrigerator not to cool. Check the evaporator coils to determine if they are frosted over. If the evaporator coils are frosted over, test each component of the defrost system.
Cause 2
Evaporator Fan Motor The evaporator fan motor draws cold air over the evaporator coils and circulates it throughout the freezer. If the evaporator fan is not working, the freezer or refrigerator will not cool adequately. To determine if the evaporator fan motor is defective, try turning the fan blade by hand. If the fan blade does not turn freely, replace the fan motor. Additionally, if the motor is unusually noisy, replace it. Finally, if the motor does not run at all, use a multimeter to test the motor windings for continuity. If the windings do not have continuity, replace the evaporator fan motor..
Cause 3
Damper Control Assembly The air damper control opens and closes to let the proper amount of cold air into the refrigerator compartment. If the damper does not open properly, it won't let enough cold air into the refrigerator. Check the damper control to determine if it is broken or stuck closed.

FREEZER COOLING OK BUT FRIDGE LOW COOLING


Remember that most all refrigerators only have cooling to the freezer... the refrigerator depends on stealing some of that cold to be cool, so here's my top 3 guesses...
Cause 1 The defrost heater is defective, so frost accumulates on the evaporator coils, and the coils will become plugged with frost causing the airflow through the coils to be restricted, and the refrigerator not to cool. Check the evaporator coils to determine if they are frosted over. If the evaporator coils are frosted over, test each component of the defrost system after clearing any restrictions to the cooling fan and defrosting with a hair dryer.

The evaporator fan motor draws cold air over the evaporator coils and circulates it throughout the freezer. If the evaporator fan is not working, the freezer or refrigerator will not cool adequately. To determine if the evaporator fan motor is defective, try turning the fan blade by hand. If the fan blade does not turn freely, bench test it for function and use a multimeter to test the motor windings for continuity. If the windings do not have continuity, (very odd) replace the evaporator fan motor.

Damper Control Assembly The air damper control opens and closes to let the proper amount of cold air into the refrigerator compartment. If the damper does not open properly, it won't let enough cold air into the refrigerator. Check the damper control to determine if it is broken or stuck closed or that an inadvertent bump has shut it off to the refrigerator compartment

This unit is not cooling, fridge or frezzer.All plugs are working and lights come on.


Compressor or compressor relay switch is bad. Pull the unit out from the wall, and with a multimeter check for voltage at the compressor and the switch which is located on the top of the compressor under the black box.

Just wondering... When you moved it into the new house, did you wait 24 hours before plugging the unit in, or did you plug it in right away?

The most likely cause for it not cooling is the refrigerant has escaped or the compressor has seized. Mechanical things like this need to be run periodically to keep them properly lubricated.

Freezer works fridge doesnt?


most likely defrost problem . most refrigerators getting their cold air from the freezer, so if your frezzer frost up, no air gets to fridge side, u have to remove the frezzer panel and inspect the evaporator coil, if frosty, u have bad defrost system, which part is bad? depends on the brand and model.

I have a side by side refrigerator, the frezzer


Usually caused by one of 2 reasons.
1. The fan motor behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment that drives cold air into the Fresh food side.
2. More commmonly the defrost system fails, causing the evaporator located behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment to frost up to the point it blocks the air from the freezer to reach the freas food side.
The defrost system is made up of 3 components.
A. The defrost control(either a mechanical timer or a solid state module). B. The defrost thermostat commonly called a limiter.
This is a small round disc type thermotat mounted on or near the top of the evaporator(cooling coil) behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment.
C. The defrost heater. A calrod heater similair to the baking element in an electric range located in the same place as the defrost thermostat.
To test these components, you need a working knowledge of electrical, and have access and knowledge how to use a VOM meter.
If not, you can remove the components and take them to an appliance parts house. Most of these stores will be happy to test them for you.
Some do-it-yourselfers will, if in fact the coils in the freezer were frosted badly, will simply buy all 3 parts and replace them.
Note: The main heater rarely fails. Replacing the limiter and defrost control will do the trick in most cases.

Refrigerator warm but freezer is fineChanged the evaporator fan (12013211q)for BR18Ve Amana...Is it possible that the part last only a couple of years...


If your bottom freezer has ice build up, (you will see it frosted up), you do not have proper air flow. Check to see if your defrost elements are working. They are in the freezer compartment. in the evaporator. There is a defrost timer on the bottom of your fridge. You can turn the knob until the refergerator turns off, then listen in the frezzer compartment to se if the elements are working. (You will hear them sizzle)
