Check and lobe the fans! The evaporation coil fan could be stuck, worn out or blocked. That fan is the cold air circulator and if it doesn't work, nothing will get cold! Also check the condenser fan usually located next to the compressor to blow room temp air across the condensing coil and across the defrost drain water pan. It's the hardest working fan and really takes the worst beating with dust, pet hair and heat.

Hi,

Insufficient cooling is a fridge repair job that you can do without the help of a professional. Often the fridge has a frost-free failure, or the compressor is faulty but there are many other reasons for a fridge not cooling properly.
Step 1 – Find the Problem

Your first job is to locate the source of the problem. Consider each of the following:

* Gaskets - Make sure the gaskets/seals are not torn and are sealing properly.
* Evaporator fan – Make sure it is working. If it is now working you may have a problem with the fan motor. Check for power to the motor and also examine the fan switches around the door (not all fridges have these switches).
* Air damper – Sometimes the air damper will not open up to allow the cold air from the freezer part to blow into the fridge section.
* Condenser coils – Check to see that the condenser coils don’t have a dust build-up and that the condenser motor is working.
* Compressor – Make sure your compressor is working with on and off clicking noises.

Step 2 – Frost-Free Failure

This is the most common cooling problem in fridges. Expose the evaporator coils by accessing the panel in the freezer section. The coils in the freezer section can sometimes get clogged up with frost. This can stop the evaporator fan motor from blowing cold air around, or cause the fan to hit it and stop, or become noisy. The defrost timer can be a bit tricky to find but it is usually located behind the back bottom corners of the fridge, although they can sometimes be found in the ceiling of the fresh food section, or behind the cold control cover.
Step 3 – Find the Timer

When you find the timer, turn the wheel-like screw slowly with a screwdriver until the fridge shuts off. The refrigerator is now defrosting. If you find that the fridge starts now, you will need to replace the defrost thermostat and the defrost timer.
Step 4 – Volt Test

If the heaters do not come on, use a volt meter to ohm test the defrost heater or volt test for 120 volts to the heater. You can bypass the defrost thermostat if you haven’t got power to the defrost heater to check if the defrost heater will come on. To bypass the thermostat, join the two wires together. Replace the defrost thermostat and the defrost timer if the heater comes on now.

If there is a ticking or squealing noise in the defrost timer, or it seems hot to touch, replace it.

Many fridges have and inline fuse on both sides of the defrost heater. You will need to replace the whole heater if one of those fuses blows. Check these fuses with a volt meter if the defrost heater doesn’t work.

A quick check if you have a cooling problem is to inspect the evaporator coils. If there is a build up of white snow on the coils, this indicates a frost free problem; if there is balled ice on part of the coils with the rest bare, this indicates a system problem, like a problem with the pumping compressor.

Good luck......

The lights are on in the refrigerator and freezer, but neither unit is cold. The thermometer on the refrigerator registers 55 degrees. Why is it not cooling??


First, make sure the compressor is running. It is underneath the refrigerator body. If the compressor is running, and you still don't have cold air, check the compressor fan. This should be close to the compressor. This fan draws air across the coils and removes heat from them. The compressor and fan must both be operating properly to get cold air.

Compressor works, interior fan? seems to blow a little fan by compressor does not blow, freezer will not frreze fridge area cool not cold


The refrigerator will not operate properly if the compressor fan does not turn. This fan is what removes the heat from the refrigerant by pulling room air across the coils.

You will need to replace the fan motor. These are readily available at the numerous internet sites that sell appliance parts. It will likely be around $100.00. These are usually held in place with some kind of bracket and will have electrical connections. It likely will be an easy repair if access is easy.

GE Refrigerator external fan - air flow?


This really depends on the manufacturer and their preference on design. First, the fins at the compressor are part of the condensing coil. Most all makers have air pulled into the condenser coil and blown across the compressor. You should be moving room temerature air across the condenser and the air from that is usually then moved across the compressor.

Hope this helps clear it up .

Clean the coils.

If you have then there is a small fan that blows air across these coils, it is on when your freezer turns on. This would allow you to see if fan works. (usually when the fan fails you loose your freezer, bad repair people won't tell you to check fan)

Seals are a big issue. A good test put dollar bill into the door and try to pull out with door closed. It should be hard to remove. Seals are cheaper than new frig. A small air leak will lower cooling
