Question about Haier Refrigerators

2 Answers

Our Haier HF-100/A fridge is 3 years old since purchase (Co-Op), and appears to have developed a faulty refrigerant circulation circuit. The top two shelves of the compartment are no longer freezing down. Is the fault (blockage?) worth repairing or not, and if so how much?

    Thanks, Johnny,

    We manually defrosted the fridge after finding the problem, but it has persisted even with an empty compartment. Does that suggest anything further?

    I assume that I will have to open up the top of the fridge to get to the control board if necessary to test your solution?

    Look in the freezer section, behind that rear panel for frost build up,
    if you see frost build up, its a defrost issue, like the heater, timer
    , defrost thermostat(bi-metal).

    this will give you more info about cooling issues:

Defrost heater do not defrost creating poor air circulation

for starter call viking with your mod and ser #
there is a hinge recall on fridge door is covered by warranty regardless of age
it can cause the air channel from freezer to fridge to ice over due to too much humidity entering fridge

Frigidaire plht189sska top freezer fridge problem. Freezer is cold, fridge is warm. About a month ago, had the problem of frost build up in freezer, water pooling under veggie bins, warm fridge. ...

If the defrost heating element, defrost timer or evaporater fan weren't working, you'd develop a block of ice on the evaporator. Is the compressor running? If it is, it might have bad valves from the frost buildup scenario. Liquid refrigerant could have gotten to the suction valves. The sealed system should have a five year warranty. Might be time to call a pro

Refrigerator runs too loud and too often

At least make sure the operating hardware and radiator is dust free, and the spacing around any radiator is not heated/has good air circulation.

The freezer is working but the fridge isn't cooling. Numbers in fridge door are: WRN38RWG6 DA68-11043J

Hi sarahcox36,
welcome aboard!

You say: The freezer is working but the fridge isn't cooling.
first think you have to look at is if the freezer is packed full or the frozen food is covering the air vents in the rear of the freezer not allowing the cold air to circulate back to the fridge!
They share the cold air and must have that circulation for the two to work properly.
Please check this.
Under your fridge is the small black tubes that run bck and forth next to each other.
they have the freon running through them that circulates to and from the compressor!
They may be covered with dust from years of not being cleaned! Which will keep the heat in and cause the fridge to stay warm !
I've seen where they were caked with 2-3 inches of dust and not visible! After 12 hours it was better and 24 hours great!
They should be gently cleaned every couple of months with a refrigerator brush that you can buy for 5 dollars at a hardware store .

Let me know that one of these two are the problem and get back to me!

How old is the fridge?.... READ Repair or replace?BELOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

Haier HVT 12ABS fan runs, but fridge does not get cool

Hello warmfridge
happy to assist you,

You said,
We've had this wine fridge for about 3 years now, and all of a sudden it stopped getting cold. We still hear the fan turn on and all appears to be running smoothly but it remains room temperature inside. Does anyone know how to fix this? I have no experience, but would like to try rather than buy a new one. thanks!

1. You may need to add freon.
2. It may have a faulty thermostat.

It seems you need hands on service!
Our site has good companies in the repair directory.

Thank You
