The thermostat cycles the freezer on and off. The cooling system runs as long as the temperature inside the freezer is higher than the set temperature. If the temperature inside the freezer is cold enough, but the thermostat doesn't cycle off, the thermostat may be defective. If so, you need to replace it.

Unpluging n keeping ur refrigerator off for least 24 hours n defrosting it is a best thing to do in such cases.try doing that ,if u hve already tried out doing it n still if it doesnot help.do not try to open it manually if u dont hve any experience as it can lead to further problems.its better to call a technician n the servicing is more than enough to resolve this problem.thanks rate this solution as fixya if it helps u anyway.thanks feel free for further assistance.

Freezer stays cold. Why is fridge part warm?


if freezer gets iced up the fan designed to pass cold air from the freezer to the fridge stops working. The freezer is meant to go into a defrost mode when its trtansducer senses too much ice. If the transducer goes fault the ice builds up. Some fridges use a timer to work this out so it could be a timer fault. Talk to a service man about how much ice the freezer should have for them to sucessfully diagnose the fault. Too much ice may prevent the service man from working out if temperature sensor is working and no ice can prevent him from testing sensor. To get rid of ice you have to trun off the power to the fridge and let it melt.
BEWARE remove food to another freezer and fridge to prevent food going off or getting food poisioning

Fridge part now working


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

What your describing is a result of either an automatic defrosting problem or an Air Damper problem.

Here is what you can do to determine if it is a defrost issue or an Air Damper issue.

1. Unplug the unit
2. Empty the freezer section ONLY contents
3. Place a fan blowing into the freezer section for a little over 2 hours. NOTE: This will make a water mess so be prepared.
4. After the manual defrosting session with the fan re-load the freezer contents and plug the unit back in.
5. Check food section temps in about 4 hours.
NORMAL temps you have an automatic defrost problem
WARM temps you have an Air Damper Problem.

Either of the above will require further troubleshooting or service. At least you will know where to start or... what to tell a service person.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Refrigerator compartment is warm around 20 centigrade and have foul smell. Freezer is OK.


Hi!!

Have you checked the temp. controls? Sometimes they get moved by accident.

The next thing to inspect is the freezer fan motor. This motor is the one that blows cold air from the evap. in the freezer to the fridge compartment.

If both things are OK, have the fridge serviced asap.

Good Luck!!

And you are posting because,.......????? You are looking for a second opinion? Don't like the repair estimate?
1. Your freezer is not working great. If it is frosting up, frozen packages will soon beging to soften also.
2. All of the cooling takes place in the freezer compartment. A fan blows air over the coils in the freezer, and directs some of it into the fresh foods side to cool it. When the coils become blocked with frost, the air can no longer flow into the fresh foods compartment. Result is warming of FF area. You may also see freezing in the bottom FF bin, water dispenser not working, FRZ section warm, etc.
3. Manually defrosting the coils will temporarilly solve your problem, but it will reappear in a few days to a week or so. (depending on door openings, ambient temp, etc)
4. The motherboard controls the defrost interval and (although not the most common) certainly can be a cause of defrost failure. If a qualified servicer diagnosed it as such, it most likely is just that.

Refrigerator is not working, freezer is working


Sir, To solve this problem, you must open the compressor area at the back bottom of the refrigerator and chek the temperature of the pressure line. If the temperature is between 55celcius to 60 than its ok. Or else you need to change the refrigerant. I suggest you to contact the service authority.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Fridge is warm, Freezer working ok


I had the same problem , you have to clean your freezer compartment out completely and take the covers off the inside back of the freezer being carefull not to break any wires, then defrost the cooling module by hand hot water towels messy job.
Make sure the cooling sensor is attached in the right spot and hasn't fallen down, it has a plastic holder it clicks into.
once clean and defrosted put back together and it will be fine...
Try not to put any frozen chip bags or peas etc right at the back of the freezer this causes the cooling system to freeze up.
How the system works it blows cold air from the freezer compartment down to the fridge to cool it and when the system freezes up no cold air to fridge ,hense the problem you are having...
If you are not confident in doing the job you can call a fisher and Paykel tech and they will charge you $150 to do the job.

Fridge side not cooling, Freezer side is....


(After trying FixYa and paying for the premium service -- during which error codes were not even discussed) I called a service tech. Turns out it was the fan above the fridge side (which explains why the freezer was still working fine) that was "humming" but not always spinning. A quck swap of the fan and we were back in business.

FYI -- The SubZero tech said it was very uncommon for the fans to go bad.
