Question about Refrigerators

Fridge stopped working

SOunded like the fan has being having problems for a good 6 months - horrible sound now and again but nudge the fridge and it stopped.
Today fridge stopped wroking and temp flashes at 4 degrees.

You mention removing a back plate (obviously with the power disconnected) - is this inside the fridge itself? (Sorry to sound dim) - is the fan easily visible? Should I be able to simply buy a replacement or do I need to "GALMI" - Get A Little Man In?

Don't know your make or model so this is general. also bear in mind i am in UK not US so may not be familiar with your appliance
back plate i refer to is inside freezer and is usually held in with a few screws or plastic clips. it is normally easily removable. you will then see evaporator pipework and fan.
there are many arrangements but the usual is a single fan at the top. this fan is used to drive cold air round the freezer with some of the cold air going to the fridge.
the usual problems are.
fan jammed by ice build up - this can be preceeded by a noisy fan when the blades are hitting ice
excessive ice build up on the evaporator pipework which causes poor airflow and hence temps rise. a temporary cure is to melt the ice off with a hairdryer

take backplate off and let me know what you find

Four year old amana side by side has stopped cooling. Sounds like compressors is not kicking on. what's wrong?


Unplug it for 30 minutes to an hour and it should start up again. Problem is your compressor is no good. Get ready for a new fridge in 3-6 months.

Warm refrigerator/freezer


very good chance it is the same problem or possibly a leak of refrigerant due to joint failing where compressor is joined to pipework
