I have a Frigidaire Gallery refrigerator. The freezer is not cooling enough to keep frozen. It is blowing cold air and the refrigerator part seems to be working.


If your freezer is cold then you may have a defrost cycle issue. There are typically three components for the defrost cycle. Heater bar, thermostat and timer. If the defrost system fails ice starts to build up in the back of the freezer until it prevents cold air from getting into the fridge. When I took off the back panel inside my freezer it was a block of ice. You can melt the ice with a hair dryer and order new parts.

FRIDGE TO WARM MODEL ED22DWXTNOO


It's a circulation problem so either the fan in the back of the freezer(circulates freezer and blows cold into fridge) or the defrost element. If the element is faulty the rear ices up and air won't flow. If fan is faulty it's not blowing the cold air. Remove rear panel if no ice it's the fan if its full of ice it needs the defrost element(usually get termination sensor also depending on type) If you open the freezer door and hold in the doorswitch you should hear the fan running if its working.

My ps 123sc is not cooling properly. it seems to be blowing some cool air but not enough to keep the freezer stuff frozen


Hello Drhoffs,

I understand that you are having a problem with you GE Refrigerator. The unit is blowing some cold air but not cold enough to keep items in the Freezer frozen. There are a few possible problems that can cause this situation:
1. Condensation coils are dirty
2. Fan not working (unplug unit)
3. Freezer coils are ice up (unplug unit)
4. Low on Freon (requires a service Tech and can be expensive)

Lets take this one step at a time thru the possible causes of the issue:

1. Condensations coils are dirty: You will need a vacuum with a crevice tool or air compressor or a long handle skinny brush>
a. Remove the kick plate on the bottom of the fridge
b. Use the above mentioned tools to remove all debris from underneath the fridge in the coils this can be accomplished from the front and back of the fridge
c. Once done reinstall the front kick plate
2. The Fan (if you can not hear the fan then follow these steps)
a. Remove all items from the Freezer
b. Remove the rear panel inside of the Freezer compartment
c. Locate the fan notice if the is turning if not remove and got to local hardware store and purchase a new one
d. Reinstall everything in reverse
3. Freezer coils
a. Remove all items from the Freezer
b. Remove the rear panel located in the back of the Freezer
c. Use a fan or heat source to speed the defrosting of the unit (it is also a good idea to put a cloth or something in the bottom of the Freezer to collect the water so that the Freezer pan does not over flow.)
d. Reinstall all items in reverse
4. Freon Level: This requires a licensed service technician and can be costly, weight the cost of the service call and repair to the cost of a new unit. If the cost to repair is more than half the price of a new unit purchase a new unit.

I have a GE GTS 221C fridge/freezer. The fridge is working fine. All of a sudden, the freezer is not freezing. Just cold, but not enough to keep food frozen. The fan on the freezer is working.


remove the rear cover inside the freezer if it has a lot of frost on it,then the evaporator coil is frozen up and you cant blow cold air over or thru a solid block of ice,defrost it,then check the defrost heating element,defrost thermostat and timer or defrost circuitry for no power or defective components,you can use a hand held hair dryer to defrost it quicker

Freezer gets ice on back wall but wont freeze , fridge either


Hi Brian,

I recommend that you set the freezer to a WARMER setting to avoid getting ice on the back of the freezer. The ice is preventing good air flow over the cooling plate and therefore is not keeping the items in your freezer cold enough. You will need to remove the ice - which can be a daunting task. If you are able to store all your frozen items somewhere else for a while, it would be best to let the whole thing thaw out. I can't find any specs on that fridge, but i would guess that it does not have an automatic defrost, which is, in part, what is causing your problem.

If you are in a humid climate this will happen more frequently - especially if you have the unit outdoors or in an unairconditioned area.

Freezer not getting cold enough to freeze.


First culprit could be a refrigerant leak and needs to be charged. If the evaporator is frozen solid it won't push enough sub zero air to freeze. Call a trusted ac&or repair man

Fridge part not working on Whirlpool Arc 7050 Fridge Freezer


If this is correct:

1. No ice build up on back of freezer wall.
2. Fan in freezer is working.
3. Items in freezer are frozen, ice cream is a good test.

Then:
Why is the cold air in the freezer not getting over to the Ref. side?

1. There is a channel (tunnel) from the freezer to the Ref, side and there is a door which regulates how much cold air from the freezer goes through to the Ref. side.

2. The control panel may have it labeled as "Freezer" setting, from cold to coldest. The coldest setting means the door is almost closed and will keep most of the cold air in the freezer.

3. Since your control panel is not working then this door must be almost closed keeping all or most of the cold air in the freezer.

Any service tech should be able to check the control panel and find the problem.
