SOURCE: Kitchenaid Side by side refrigerator/freezer

when is the last time you cleaned the condenser coils the areas you describe are supposed to be hot there is a loop there to keep the door gaskets dry but should not be too hot pull the fridge out check to see if the fan is running on the compressor then unplug the unit and clean the coils the only other thin that will make it super hot if there is a leak in the low side of the system and has drawn air in see if cleaning the coils fixes it first and we will go from there

SOURCE: refrigerator not cooling.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, your described problem could be either:

  • evaporator fan/blower is faulty; or
  • air passgaeway blocked or vent is blocked or closed.
The refrigerator section gets its cold air from the freezer. If the freezer is working then the frozen air would have to be drawn to the refrigerator side by the fan. If the fan is not working or the air passage way is blocked, then no frozen air would be moving towards the refrigerator side. result would be as you described.

In some instances, it could be the thermostat of the refrigerator but this would be least likely.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: my freezers works but my refrigerator

make sure all your fans are turning. maybe try to remove the knobs and see if you can turn them without the knobs, possibly they could be stripped.

SOURCE: The refrigerator portion has quit cooling.

I have the same problem and have found that if you take the panel off inside the refrigerator and with a blow dryer defrost it. It should work for a few weeks. I have been doing this once a month since March and I hope to found out how to fix it also.

SOURCE: Freezer is cooling but the refrigerator is not cold

This setup uses a fan to push air around to distribute the cold air. It sounds as if your fan isn't running anymore.
It may not be a lot of fun to access it for replacement or lubrication which might be the problem. This type of fan motor normally uses a phosphor-bronze bearing with graphite embedded and while they shouldn't ever need oil, this type of bearing has tendency to get sticky over time eventually jamming the motor shaft.
Modern motors are 'impedence protected' so they don't 'burn up' anymore but do get hot.
What you might try is to check Sears parts section to see if your model is listed for replacement parts (they sell parts for about every US brand) and they may have an illustration of your fridge that shows you how you can access the fan.

ED2khaxvq01 not cooling ref and freezer


Sir, To solve this problem, you must open the compressor area at the back bottom of the refrigerator and chek the temperature of the pressure line. If the temperature is between 55celcius to 60 than its ok. Or else you need to change the refrigerant. I suggest you to contact the service authority.

SAMSUNG REFRIGAERATOR NOT COOLING


Not cooling? check for the light and the thermostat is that being set properly? See the compressor if its making a humming sound or making a noise the ref is not cooling properly. There a lot of possible problem better call a technician.

Left door open on Sub zero model 650


It went into self protection mode. Just leave it closed and when the compressor cools down enough, it will start. Once the ref starts to cool, the lights and such will come back on.

All of this assumes that no failure was caused by the long run times when the door was open

GE side by side refrigerator. Fridge side not cooling - help!


Hi, they have changed lots of parts, were they defected, did they tested parts for faults or they just change parts, because it's available, there's always a reason why a certain part, go bad. so far you change most of parts in ref. check refrigerant (gas, freon) pressure, check compressor, for faulty suction and high side valve, it's possible your compressor loosing efficiency. or say if compressor normally pump 50 psi. now it's pumping 40 psi. is the refrigeration cycle balance ? is there restriction in your ref. system? is compressor running long enough? plug on ref. let it run for 1hr, listen to compressor for any clicking sound, fans and everything else could be working, be compressor not, compressor could be short cycling (not working long enough) also check voltage in receptacle(outlet) with digital multi-tester, get accurate voltage reading, let me know, could also be a faulty circuit breaker in house (building) not your ref. let me know, system could have very slow refrigerant leak, you could have a very small (slow) gas leak, that's why your refrigerator get hot first, then your freezer, there's a condensate line (loop) that passes through, ref body, close to doors to prevent door gasket from freezing, after few years sometimes develope leaks, cause by rusting. it's very possible there could be small leak in your system. let me know what happened.good luck.

Freezer compartment of refrigerator not freezing


First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.
So, how can the Ref side be cold and the freezer side not freezing?

1. Coolant leak. There is enough coolant to keep the Ref side cool but not enough to freeze on the freezer side.

2. Defrost system failure. The coils on the freezer side are clogged with ice and it's just a matter of time when the Ref side won't cool either. The back wall in the freezer will be covered with ice/frost
