A refrigerator temperature problem like yours is likely due to one of the following issues. Open the freezer door and listen for the freezer fan, you might have to close the door/light switch to activate the fan. There is a vent at the top of the back wall of freezer, as well as a vent at the top back wall of the fresh food section. Wet your finger and place it in front of either vent and feel for cold air flow. If you dont feel any air flow in the fridge and the freezer fan is running, you will likely have a defrost problem, either the heater, the bi metal t stat, or the defrost control have failed. Any of these will result in frost on freezer back wall. YOu may also have a problem with the damper door in the fridge, again, top back wall, not opening, or on the rare occasion I have seen a slice of wrapped cheese on the floor behind the fresh food crispers covering the warm air return vent to the fridge.

Freezer works, fridge side not cool


OK if the fan was replaced and the vents are open there has to be a restriction of air flow over evaporator coil causing the lack of air flow. On some models like yours there is something called an auto damper between the freezer and fresh food compartment and the damper is operated like a thermostat bulb on it's own solo. The best way to test them is to remove and place the thermostat bulb or tube coil into cold or hot water. I will gather more information for you as we go along here. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Check the circulation fan in the freezer compartment that circulates the cold to the fresh food compartment. If its not running, and no ice is on it to bind uo the blades, replace the motor.

Westinghouse fridge: no cool air circulating inside


Art, I need to get a little more information from you. Does the condenser fan under the refrigerator seem to work and blowing warm air from below and or behind the refrigerator? The motor feeling warm is OK. Only when too hot to touch on top. Needs to cycle also. When you opened the freezer did you hear the fan blowing? Thanks, JT

Frost Free, freezer ok but fridge warm


If all else fails I would completely defrosted the unit.If there is any blockage this will open up all the tubes.Unplug it open the doors put pans of hot water in the freezer to speed up the process.
Make sure your fan is still working ,its located behind the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refridgerater may be blocked.With out a fan you have no circulation but your freezer may look likes its working,it may last 3 days.Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.

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)
