The compressor is working is a good thing ,you have leaked out some freon and it might be pricey to fix and I don't know with all the capturing of the gas ,recharging, only after they found the leak. Definitely get an estimate before you do anything ,but to answer you question is it worth it ,you'll have to weigh that out ,but a fridge is good for at least 10 to 15 years or longer. If not freon you could also have a thermostat problem which wont be so heavy on the wallet, get a guy out to diagnose it and see where you stand is all you can do.

That is usually caused by the evaporator fan not running. It's located under the fridge accessed from the back behind the cardboard cover. The fan should run when the compressor runs.

Our Amanda refrigerator/freezer has been making noises on and off (buzzing) over the past two months, in particular the bottom freezer. Today everything started to melt and the buzzing is frequent every...


It sounds like your evaporator fan motor, they last about 4-5 years. Try to see if the buzzing noise comes from the motor, usually in the freezer compartment behind a vented cover plate

The freezer is usually cooled by the compressor, the fridge is then cooled by an evaporator fan motor ($30). If this fan seizes or slows down then the fridge warms up (it sometimes starts squealing before this happens). It could be that your drain hose is clogged or frozen. Maybe the temperature adjuster go bumped.

If you think it is the evaporator fan motor:
Check to be sure you can get a replacement fan first, they last about 4 - 5 years. Can get from a parts supplier or electric motor company.
UNPLUG fridge. Located usually in top of freezer behind a vented cover plate. Remove cover, remove screws holding fan in, may have to cut wires. Replace with new motor, make sure the fan pushes air into the freezer area and doesn't spin backward drawing air from the freezer area.

Freezer on bottom cold but frig is warm


Just additional clues..(general). The defrost timers (on non-electronic) usually located at the bottom (underneath), have a tendency to fail. (One of mine is in the center, one was on the left side) There are usually about 5 wires connected to it. If it fails while defrosting.. the fridge will warm quickly and stop cooling, if it fails in cooling mode, you will have the icing up problem. (other) A squealing noise is usually a fan motor. -also- (Freon issues)..as freon is lost from a small leak, first the freezer will actually get colder, but the refrigerator section may be too warm (I know it sound stupid). When enough is lost the compressor will get hot and the fridge will not cool.
