You're probably right. Or the fan motor has failed. Could also be a defrost problem. Check to see if there is frost build up on the evaporator cover.

Freezer working fine but fridge not gettind cold.


The first thing you need to check is whether the fan is operating, moving the cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator. If it is operating, you should be able to feel air flow in the refrigerator when the fan is operating. If you don't but the fan is operating then the cooling tubs are probably clogged with ice or frost.

Sub zero 532 fridge is not cooling porperly but freezer is fine


Top of Form

If there is no cooling at all on the fridge section but the freezer works then it is confirmed that the compressor and gas pressure is OK. Now shut off the fridge and leave it powered off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if ice forms in the freezer then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked. Frost formation without defrosting could block the air flow and so shut the air passage to the fridge. Also the blower fan must work and if this is not working then the fan can be faulty. Also a fault on the control unit is a suspect to non functioning of any one of these components.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test using a multi-meter on the defrost timer and the thermostat and make your observations so that we come to the solution.

Hi, if the fan, evaporator fan is not running, it has failed on you. If you are up to doing this kind of work, you can replace it your self. It is a 120 volt evaporator fan motor, and if you can get it out, take it with you along with the name of the unit, model & serial # to an appliance parts house to get one. If they don't have the exact one, they have universal ones that will fit. This will solve your problem.

I have a 2 year old LEC T2856w fridge freezer and the fridge keeps freezing everything, it seems to be warmer at the top and makes a wall of ice on the back


That sounds like an a refrigeration engineer is required as if the gas pressure has dropped, it will no longer cool properly.

Refigarator and freezer no longer cold enough. freezer is not freezing and refigarator is not cold enough, food is going bad. Unit is not yet 5 years old.


pull out the plug for the fridge and let it stand for 7 days then plug in after seven days.the problem is that the fan that circulates the air is cloged up with ice so you have to give time for the ice to melt off.

Here we go, I have a GE side by side about 6 years old... Started with the icemaker not dispensing ice consistently... then the ice stopped all together (even though the bin was full and not froze solid)....


The clicking you are hearing is the relay unit. Now it is for sure that the compressor is not working as the relay keep s tripping off.
So first of all to clear this doubt, let us checck the relay unit which is clicking. remove and check. most of the time the relays need to be replaced as a poor contact will not deliver good voltage to the compressor and it will shut off. So check this out.
One the compressor works and you notice there is cooling the sytem seems ok except that you must check if the thermostat, the auto defrost cut off timer works.
If after the compressor works the cooling is not good then you can decide on a replacement than to spend for expensive repairs

We have a Hotpoint refrigerator/frezzer. It intermittently makes fan noises and stops making ice. Where do we find someone who can service the unit?


I hope your microwave doesn't make ice !!!
Are you in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area). If not I can tell you what is happening.
All fridges have a timer so that the freezer goes thru a defrosting mode for about 3hrs
In that 3hrs there are hearter in the walls of the freezer to melt the ice.
As the ice melts , there is a drain from the back of your freezer down to the bottom of the fridge is a vaporator tray. The hose could be blocked and the water can't drain and after the defrost mode all that water changes to ice and it stops the fan
Take the time to make sure that hose is fre from abstruction

Inside the freezer, at the back is another fan that circulates cold air from the freeze through out the fridge. Make sure it's running. Sometimes the blade will slip on the shaft and get jammed, or the motor could be defective.
