Sounds like the evaporator is froze up. You may have a defrost problem. First I would check and see if the condensor coils on the bottom, if they are, clean them. I cant look up a wiring diagram without model and serial #'s. Do you know where the defrost timer is? hope this helps.

You will have a blockage in the ferfigeration system. Its not a big deal, a technician needs to regas the fridge. Make sure he installs a new drier before he pumps gas into the fridge. (When the drier is contaminated, it restricts gas flow). This is what you have with your fridge..

Same problem.... almost eight years July 7, 2009


Dirty condenser (the coil under the unit or behind it). Vacuum it out. Could possibly be the thermostat going bad or the compressor. If it has an ice machine, it may be bad. Most fridges run everything through the ice machine.
Try cleaning it inside and out and make sure the inside coil is not frosted over. That could be a symptom of another problem.

Your cooling coils are completely clogged with dust and I'd check your refrigerant level. Clean first then keep an eye on it for two days then if no improvement in lowered temp call in a repairman for a refrigerant top off. $$$$ Expect over $150.00 plus!

Try an air tank with a long blow off tip to clean the dust off the coils. No simple task!

You can have the freon checked or recharged, or you might have to take the motor apart and blow it out with air or pressure wash it. The compressor may be going bad most of the time it's cheaper to replace deep freeze instead.

11 year old amana bottom freezer icemaker drips water when filling tray


Hello dunc444444
Welcome,
You said, Bottom freezer works fine, but upper refrigerator has no cold air

Is your freezer so full that it is packed to the top especially in the rear?
Refrigerators and freezers share the air from the compressor and travel through vents in the rear of the freezer and fridge.
Sometimes it can effect the cooling in the fridge if the freezer articles block the vents!


The water overfilling in the ice maker is an ice maker problem only.
When we install an ice maker there is a short white plastic tube that we push through the rear
hole of the fridge which supply's the water to the maker, the outside water line attaches to this.
That tube we push through the fridge must go in till it stops. And empties in to a little sistran at the rear of the ice maker. Make sure it did not sip out or backwards a little when you may have moved
rolled the fridge out to clean under it!


Also you need periodically to remove the front grill down in front of the fridge and gently run a refrigerator brush under the coils to clean out the dust that may block air flow over the coils.(the coils are metal black tubes that run back and forth along the bottom of your fridge.
The vacuum will not reach in to that tight space. That's why they make a special brush for this chore.
Let me know how you do?

I have a 2 year old SMEG FAB 32 Fridge/Freezer and the freezer section has suddenly lost temperature. Upper fridge section is fine but freezer not. I have emptied, kept door shut, turned dial up but no success.

Any suggestions on what the problem might be?

Wouldn't expect problems on a SMEG just 2 years old.


You could have a bad thermostat or the refrigerator could be low on Freon, make sure you clean off the exposed coils on the back of the fridge and underneath to free it from dust and dirt – use some type of a blower for underneath and the coils you can vacuum off or wipe off the coils, if not call a service tech to have a look @ the refrigerator – it might have a bad compressor
