Question about Frigidaire FRT18B4A Top Freezer Refrigerator

Open Question

I have a FRT18B4AW8. The freezer works fine but i think the fan motor is dead as the fridge does not get cold. I took the back panel off and watched the fan for a while it is not working. I also noticed some greenish corrosion on the contacts.I tried cleaning the contacts but it still doesnt work. Do I just need to replace the motor or wiring and all?

SOURCE: Burnt smell inside freezer.

Generally speaking it is the refrigerator control that controls the compressor operation. Refrigerator is cooled by air from the freezer. When the refrigerator gets down to its designed temperature it shuts off the compressor. The freezer control determines how much air is allowed to flow into the refrigerator section and there-by controls the freezer temperature.

Ge Gsh25jsxnss side x side fridge is not getting cold, took plate off & damper works fine, I don't see ne kind of fan, it goes straight 2 the freezer near the ice maker. freezer is cold & working fine


Evaporator fan motor has probably failed. p/n WR60X10185

It is located in the freezer section, behind the back panels inside, and under the icemaker. Remove the screws on the bottom panel in the freezer, remove the ice maker, auger motor, and panel. is is about center of the freezer.

I do not believe the problem is the fan. sounds like the frig. is low on Freon this is what will cause the ice build up. you need to find the leak, you can do this by spraying soapy water on coil tubes & watch for bubbles. repair leak & recharge.

Top Freezer works fine but there is no ice building up in freezer the bottom fridge not cooling properlyThings are not as cold as they should be


Remove the back panel from the freezer to verify no ice behind the freezer panel. Look inside the air vent on the freezer panel for ice buildup. Make sure the freezer control is set to minimum not coldest freezer.. Make sure the freezer fan motor is working.

Refrigerator does not work but the freezer works fine!


most fridges are cooled by the freezer. There is usually a fan in the freezer section that blows cold air in the fridge section vial some duct work. I expect that the fan has failed or that the air passage is blocked. look inside the fridge, near the very top on the side next to the freezer. You should see a vent/grill.

Freezer fine /After power went out twice fridge not cold enough


In back of the refrigerator is a removable panel behind which is the compressor. Listen for a hum and a click. If you hear those sounds the compressor may have failed. Behind that same panel is a condenser where heat is removed from the refrigerating system. Make sure it is clean and check that the fan operates when the compressor runs.

Refrigerator stopped working, freezer works fine


Sounds like the evap fan is not running. The fan takes cold air from the freezer to cool the refer compartment. If the freezer is cold the compressor is running. Generally the freezer will stay cold since the cooling coils are there but it must have the fan working to get the air up to the refer area. Pull everything out the freezer and take the back panel off to view the coils and fan, etc. It's a simple easy job to change the fan. If you find the coils are a total block of ice then it's another problem... the defrost cycle isn't working. Sooo... see if the fan is running in the freezer compartment first. See http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/AA43-57.gif for fan location, item 18 is the fan motor. Let us know what you find out.
