Freezer not freezing and fridge not getting cold

How old of a unit do you have? Can you hear anything running like the fan or compresdor?It could be ice build up in the ductwork, It could be low refrigerant pressure, an electric issue, Your unit may have a bad fuse or tripped breaker(if it is an older unit.), the thermostat may be bad. Or ot could be the compressor. Did you check the electrical socket the unit was plugged-into?

Maybe these suggestions will help you.

Problem with 2 Musso Pola Machines

Depending on the ingredients, it could take 40 minutes to make a batch. Make sure you mixture is very cold before it goes into the unit by chilling in the coldest part of the refrigerator until very cold. If anything less than a very cold mixture goes into the unit, the freezing time will be quite long. The outside of the unit will not feel cold, just the inner wall of the bowl. Also, if your recipe includes any alcohol, this will inhibit the freezing process.

Check your outside unit to see if fan is running. If it is running check to see if air is blowing out if not you have a bad capacitor. Some times if a capacitor shorts out the fan will run backwards and the line will get very hot same as if the fan is not running. Russ

Amana side by side not cooling well, will not freeze water.

if you are only seeing frost on the top portion of the evap coil then you then it sounds as if the unit has sealed system problem (low freon or bad compressor). if the unit is less than 5 years old and made prior to nov '06 it should have a sealed system warranty. if the unit is out of warranty you may want to start looking at new refrigs. good luck peyton

Central air unit

Make sure you let the blower run for a while after it freezes to make sure there is no more ice. Then run the unit. Check the refrigerant lines the large copper line that has insulation on it should be cold to the touch. If it runs for 10 minuits and is barely cold or warm you are low on refrigerant. If its starts out nice and clod then check your filter and retun ductwork for blockage you should not have noisy return air vents or that can indicate you have too small a return.

Also are the outdoor unit and indoor coil a match? Same tonage?
Is the furnace big enough to handle the tonage? (fan size)
