My magic chef rb193p fridge wont stop running. I replaced the fan motor 4 months ago. The top of the fridge compartment is freezing. Is the defrost timer bad?


I had the same problem. When the evaporator heater stops working, frost will build up until there is no air flow to the refrigerator. This will cause the refrigerator to keep running. Remove everything from the freezer and remove the pan at the bottom and see if there is a frost buildup. .... Bruce

My fridge wont get cool


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

Freezer works fridge doesn't both worked yesterday today fridge wont


Hi, Check and see if the condenser fan motor down by the compressor is running. Sometimes when they get moved, something will get into the blade and stop fan.
That will overheat the compressor and cause it to shut off on safety. If that fan is running, check the fan inside freezer and look to see if frost is building up on inside rear freezer wall.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

You most likely have a problem in the freezing/cooling circuit. Check your condenser, evaporator fans to see if they are running okay. Most likely it may be the condenser fan.

My amana fridge wont stop running after l turned it off to clean it


Laura,

You didn't say exactly what the fellow did. The thermostat (cold control??) should deal with both the freezer and refrigerator. Usually, the freezer is regulated and the fridge goes along for the ride. You can usually adjust the vents to make that work out. Your friend may not have properly installed the control or it could be defective. Does the control turn the unit off? If not, the problem is definitely there. I'd have the control checked or replaced again before going on to anything else. I doubt you did anything to hurt the unit by not unplugging it.

You didn't say if the unit is frosting up. 30 year old units can be low on gas. Unfortunately, the type of gas they used back then is only available from a licensed tech.
