Sounds like it is frosted up behind the rear panel . Is either the heater , thermostat or adaptive defrost control.If you unplug it for a day with the doors open it will work for a week or two this time of year.

RV donitc RM2601 frezer works but frig does not. Frezer has frost on the upper panel. The frig has accessive water in the plastic drip reservoir.

First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Check cold control (thats where you turn it colder)

Frezer temp @ -5 ,referagerator @ 47 degrees. how can I get it colder /

determine if freezer fan is running. If not thats the problem.
Remove the back panel in freezer to access the fan.
Check for frost buildup on back bottom of freezer panel
Sometimes this is a auto defrost problem or ice buildup on
freezer coils.
If ice on the freezer coils is restricting air to the ref.
To confirm ice you will need to turn off ref. for 24 hrs and let the ice melt OR remove back panel in the freezer and visually look for ice in the evaporator coils. if it works fine when you turn it on take your mod number to a local Appliance parts store and they will sell and instruct how to fix the Defrost system

Frezer keeps frezzing

If the freezer is icing up your defrost timer or the heating element may be bad. If the fridge doesnt go into defrost mode you will get frost on the back of th freezer and ice will freeze up on the coils eventually it will not cool the fridge side very well at all. If there is an ice block let me know also is the fan in the freezer running?

Fridg is not cooling.frezer working real good.

Open the freezer compartment and listen for the fan motor if you don't hear it but you can hear the compressor running. youll need to first make sure that the door switch is working( If the lights go off when you press the button it should be okay). You'll need to remove the back panel and inspect the coils if frosted over evenly and the fan still is not working give the fan a little push. if it will not go, you need to see if it has voltage if so, replace the fan. If no check the defrost terminator which only on amanas will keep the fan off. In this case replace the defrost terminator(it look about like 5 quarters, with 2 wires clipped through the evaprator coils in back of freezer.

My freezer works fine but fridge does not! Any solutions?

ok check the back wall of the freezer for frost,
while your looking hold the door switch closed
do you hear the fan,
if there is frost your coil is clogged and the fan cant pull air through it
you can clean this up by turning it off for 12 hrs
but it is only a temp
if the fan is not running thats your problem
if there is no frost and the fan is working
close the freezer, open the refer upper left hand coner do you feel air.....
but if this is a maytag,you will need a
defrost circuit board

Side by side, freezer is cold, fridge is warm, freezer is iced-up

Hi: Your defrost heater ot timer is out. Hence the frost. That also clogs the airways to the fresh food compartment. If you are handy, unload the fridge (you will need a cooler or have a bbq for everybody,) I can't give you the specifics but you will need to remove the panel where the frost is, first let the frost melt off. at the bottom of the coils will be a heater tube. Usually glass with a metal coil in it. See if there is a break in the coil. If so replace it. If that is ok it is your timer. Most likely electronic and expensive. This can be anywhere. Look at a diagram of the fridge to see. Sears parts is a good site for it. Hope I helped, Jeff

The fridge on my fridge freezer has stopped

just about all friges work off the frezer .the evap fan moves the air fromthe frezer to the you would here fan noise.i dont know your brand but on most frezers if you turn the frezer temp to the highest setting thats acomplished by keeping the air from going to the frige.hence warmer frig temps .also make sure fan on out side back is working and condenser is clean.again turn air damper control from frezer to frige to lowest setting .somthimes this could be in frig section.God bless ,tom

Frost in Freeze

Hi Frezer Frost.
It sounds like your defrost circuit in the refrigerator has gone south. This melts the ice off of the cooling coil in the freezer section every 8 - 10 hours of run time.
If you are old enough to remember the manual defrost refrigerators, that is why you had to defrost them occasionally. The ice layer on the coil acts as an insulator, preventing the coil from working properly.

Frezer doesn't work

We have a different model, but had the same problem. The evaporator fan motor has most likely gone out. If the air doesn't move over the coils they start to get frost on them and it causes the water reservoir to freeze as well. It's located on the inside back wall of the freezer, behind the panel.
