Hi

Check the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost. Check the freezer or evaporator fan to see if it is running. Check the condenser coils under the unit for blockage from dust. Check the condenser fan to see if it is running.
If you have frost in the freezer there is a problem with the defrost system and the freezer will start to warm eventually as well as the fresh food section. If that is the problem you can check the defrost terminator, defrost heater/s, and the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control If used on your unit or the main control board if so equipped. These things usually require dismantling the freezer and other areas of the refrigerator to be checked.
You could defrost the freezer by disconnecting the power to the refrigerator and letting it sit for at least 24 hours with the doors open to allow the frost to melt completely but it will build up again in 1-2 weeks and start the warming up again.


Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Thank you for contacting fixya.com

Refrigerator is not cooling


Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

Refrigertor not cooling but freezer working


your temp control fan has probibly gone out. The way you find out is to find the fan which should be located near the temp control switch behind a plastic vent. If this fan is out there will be cooling in the freezer but not in the fridge. Also, if you open that area and find a large chunk of ice you defroster rod has gone out. Would recommedn replacing both at that time. Get model and serial number of unit and take to an appliance parts house they can assist you in the right part and any type of installation problems. Good Luck

Check freezer... for Frost build up and if Fan is blowing, Check condenser... To make sure clean, and the fan is blowing by compressor, Check Recirclating Vents in refrigerator... to make sure theres no blockage, CONTROLS ...should be in the middle setting, YOU CAN TRY turning FREEZER CONTROL To A WARMER FREEZER SETTING Allowing.. MORE AIR.. to refrigertor side.
