Frig stopped cooling. Light works, freezer works, can hear freezer fan. Doesnt seem like air flow is getting to fresh food area. Freezer back wall has thin line of frost on it. Model tbx18ja. I want to...


Easiest way is to push against the vertical portion of the ice tray holder until it slides
off the buttons which are inserted into the top of the freezer compartment.

These models sometimes had issues with defrost timers (which I just replaced one today) and Defrost termination thermostats (which is clipped on to a tube behind freezer panel).
Make sure the freezer coils are not frozen up solid, if so use a hair dryer to defrost them
and make sure the vent is not iced over.
Model and serial are in the lower compartment on the left wall. In case you need to go to
the appliance parts store.
Hope this helps.

Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.

Refrigerator section does not cool; freezer works fine


Check the settings first. They should be set to the factory settings in most cases. Otherwise check the back of your freezer to see if it is icing up, you may need to remove the back panel to see the ice. If this is the case the ice may be preventing the fan to circulate the cold air into the freezer and you will need a new defrost timer. However if there is no ice and the fan never kicks on you may need a new fan motor.

Freezer always about same temp as the upper refrig section


Check those coils underneith. They are making the machine work harder IF they are dirty. They may be full of lint and cobwebs. All that needs to be removed.

Amana BX22A2W - freezer works, fridge not cooling


Same problem here with an Amana refrigerator with the freezer on the bottom. I removed the back panels and vacuumed dust and cat hair out. The back panel in the freezer was frosted over with ice on the bottom. I removed the shelves and food and used a hairdryer to loosen the panel. The ice maker made it harder to remove the plastic panel so I pulled it back and saw the cooling fins frozen solid. I used the hairdryer to melt the ice and a shop vacuum to collect the water. It works like new again.

Refridgerator freezer GE


Frost is due to outside air leaking into unit. Check on back wall to see if hole for ice maker fill tube is still plugged. If not and you have no ice maker cover hole with tape. Also look for water or ice build up in bottom of freezer or ref. sections. May have a plugged drain. Let me know what you find.
