Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

Tip

How to receive the best refrigerator repair help on FixYa


There are a couple of things that you should include in your refrigerator repair question when you ask it on FixYa.com

1. Model Number

The model number can be located on the model/serial number tag that is located on the refrigerator.

Make sure you get the full model number from this tag and not the model number from the owners manual.

The model number from the owners manual only includes the first few digits of the full model number because they include that owners manual with many similar models of refrigerators.

With the full model number I'm able to look up factory service manuals, tech sheets, wiring diagrams, factory service pointers and so much more.


2. Detailed description of the problem

At the very least give a brief description of the problem you are having with your refrigerator.

Descriptions like 'My refrigerator don't work' is not very helpful.

Describe what is not working. For example is the refrigerator not cooling or making a noise? Maybe the freezer section seems to cool ok, but the refrigerator section is not cold enough.

The more details you can give the better. Instead of simply saying 'My refrigerator does not cool' you could go into more detail and say something like...

"I notice my refrigerator making a noise. The noise seems to be coming from the freezer section of the refrigerator. The freezer items are frozen yet, but I notice the milk in the refrigerator is getting warm."

Following these couple tips can help you get a faster and more accurate reply to your refrigerator repair question.

Refrigerator not cooling. doesn't seem like fan is blowing. freezer still working


all that happens is the cold air from the freezer gets blown into the fridge section by the evap fan motor brhind the inside back wall of the freezer so if you open the freezer door and don't hear the fan blowing i would say that yes you do have a bad evap fan motor and that's why the fridge section is warm.next time send the brand name and model number so i can help you better

Freezer works great but the refrigerator doesn't seem to cool real well.


Hello,

Please as long as the ref. is running, it should freeze very well. if this is not happening check the following.
1, The setting on the thermostat.
2, Check if you have enough gas in your system.
3. Check if your system is not leaking.
4. Check if your door seals are ok.

Freezer not cooling enough


Jimmy,
Check the condenser coil and clean it if it is dirty. It is located under the machine behind the grill in the front, or in the back of the machine near the compressor depending on the make and model. Also make sure that the condenser cooling fan near the compressor is working. If the refrigerant is not cooled properly in the condenser the system will run hot and not cool properly inside the freezer.
If this does not help your problem, you will probably need a refrigerant technician to check the system. A rule of thumb for refrigerator repair, Freezer working but Fridge warm = airflow blocked inside the unit somewhere, Fridge cooling but Freezer too warm = refrigerant problem. This is usually a major problem that will cost too much to repair than is cost effective . Check your owners manual for warranty information. Look for coverage for the "sealed system". This is usually 5 yrs but can go much longer depending on make and model.
Let me know what you find out. Please post the model and serial numbers if you have any more questions and I will try to help.
Thanks, Mike
