The problem could be caused from the main board not sending a signal to the damper, the damper could be stuck or broke or the thermistor may have failed.

Another possibility is if the return air is restricted. If this happens, the air flow will be very slow. A good way to determine if this is the problem is to feel the air flow coming out of the air diffuser and while checking it, open the freezer door or drawer. If the air flow increases with the freezer section open, the return air is restricted. If the air flow remains the same, the problem will be one of the above mentioned possibilities.

The Refrigerator's Freezer is not working but the fridge is, what is wrong?


You probably have one compressor that cools the freezer section and the refrigerator section. Usually the freezer gets cooled directly with the cooling coils. A fan blows cool air to the refrigerator section. The air flow to the refrigerator may be modulated with some time of "air door". What you have written says to me, is that the fans and air doors are working but there is enough cold for the refrigerator but not enough for the freezer.

Here is what I would do:
  1. Put a thermometer in the refrigerator and in the freezer.
  2. Be sure the coils underneath or behind the refrigerator are clean. If they are very dirty, clean them.
  3. Keep the doors shut for at least 12 hours and then read the thermometers and write down the temperatures.
  4. Freezer temperature
    1. If the freezer has started freezing again, you fixed it by cleaning the coils
    2. .If the freezer temperature is between 0 deg F and 32 deg F, consider putting the food in a cooler and packing in some dry ice to try and save it.
    3. If the freezer is warmer than 32 deg f, throw away the food.
    4. Doctors and hospitals are pretty expensive. I would throw away the food no matter what the thermometer read.
  5. Look inside the freezer at the cooling coils. See if they are ice coated or not.
    1. If the freezer is above 0 deg F, and the coils are ice covered, the defrost control is not working. Unplug the refrigerator for 12 hours and let the ice melt. (Keep the doors shut.) Then, plug in the refrigerator for 12 hours and check the temperature like in step 3.
    2. If the freezer is above 0 deg F, and the coils are NOT ice covered, the compressor is not working.
  6. Call the service technician. When she comes out show her the temperatures and tell her what you found out about the ice on the coils.
Good luck

Door was left opened for sometime and freezing is not good now, what I should do


If the only fault was the door left open, switch off and defrost completely for 24 hours. Clean condensor coil. Restart and run for 12 hours before checking.

Refrigerator not cooling and freezer has ice on back wall. This is a Kenmore Freezer top unit. The model number is 363.9735728. Condenser coils underneath and in back were covered with dust 1/4 inch of...


Unplug the box and let the freezer completely defrost (4 hours or so with the freezer door open - put towels at the bottom to collect condensate). If this is the problem, the freezer will work great for a day or two after defrosting, then get progressively warmer.

If, after you restart, the freezer freezes up again, it's probably a failed defrost timer. The defrost timer shuts the box down ever 12 -24 hours, turns on a heater coil to defrost the freezer coil, then restarts the compressor.

After the ice forms, the freezer can only reach 32 degrees. It should be at about Zero degrees when it's working right.

It's POSSIBLE that the problem is the defrost heater, but a defective defrost timer is far more likely.

Freezer works great, but refrigeration section stopped working


Check the door seals on fridge and freezer to make sure there are NO leaks.
Try manually adjusting air flap that controls air from freezer to fridge, the flap may be frozen or the actuator that controls the flap may be faulty.

Freezer works frige dont unplug for an hour then it works .


I would suggest check the coils to make sure they are clean . Also check the fan which cools the compressor to make sure it is working . When you unplug , it gives the compressor time to cool down a bit , but after it restarts , it will get hot again and stop cooling .

SIDE BY SIDE NOT COOLING


Can you get the exact model number for me? Do you know if the freezer is defrosting every 8 hours? If not sure, unplug the refrigerator and remove the panel in back of freezer. With panel removed do you see a block of ice or clean evaporator coils? Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Amana bottom freezer refrig runs at maximum coolness


Thanks for your inquiry. I think I may have fixed it. I unpluged it and took everything out of the refrigerator and freezer, cleaned it thoroughly inside and out and unscrewed the back wall inside the freezer. There was a huge ice buildup on the coils so I let it sit for 12 hours like a defrost. I turned it back on and it seems to be working fine. It is not running constantly and is maintaining about 5 degrees below. If this doesn't stay working, I guess I have to call a repairman.

REF AND FREEZER STOP COOLING


We had a repairman come out, said it was the compressor, bad news...$650 if he repaired...good news...compressor under manufacturer's warranty for five years so you may want to call Maytag. It will be less expensive if the part is covered and you only have to pay for labor. Hope this helps. Bought our fridge 12/2004 so it was covered.
