Hello Earnedit03,

I understand that you are having a problem with you refrigerator not cooling at all. However, all of the mechanics are working properly. This issue will be a freon leak, this is not a DIY project as you must recover any freon (refrigerant), pull the unit down, find the leak and patch, and recharge the unit.

Is the unit worth repairing? You should call around and see what the cost of repair wil cost in your area. If the cost is above half the cost of a new unit, you are better off replacing than repairing.

Ultimately the choice is your as to what to do at this point.

Thank you for choosing FIxYa.com

Side by side, refrigerator works, but freezer does not The freezer just started thawing everything. We can still hear something running in the refrigerator.


This is unusual. The more common set of circumstances is that the freezer works but the refrigerator doesn't. The cold air in a side-by-side is produced on the freezer side and is than transferred throughout the freezer and to the refrigerator by a fan in the freezer.

You say you hear something running in the refrigerator. This could be the freezer fan. It is located behind an access panel in the freezer. This fan should run.

You should also hear the compressor (underneath the refrigerator) running. If this doesn't run, you will not get cooling. Also, there should be a compressor fan (underneath the refrigerator close to the compressor) running. This fan removes heat from the refrigerant coils and transfers the heat to the outside. If this fan doesn't run, proper cooling cannot be obtained.

Check these things out.

Not sure of the model or make, but the freezer and refridgerator work and then dont work, i can freeze water but a day or two later it's thawed?


First, make sure the refrigerant coils underneath the unit are not dirty. If so, clean them off.

Second, make sure the compressor (underneath the refrigerator) is running.

Third, make sure the compressor fan (underneath the refrigerator close to the compressor) is turning. This fan should always be turning when the compressor is running. It removes heat from the refrigerant coils and transfers it to the outside.

Fourth, make certain the evaporator fan (in the freezer, likely behind an access panel) is turning.

All of these conditions must be present for proper cooling.

Our fridge and freezer are not cooling, and the fan is not running. I cleaned underneath, and even used compressed air. It came on for a day, but has stopped again. It is an Inglis

Refridgerator top freezer exterior wall hot


Hi.........
Folow these steps. It's worth a try.
1.Pull the fridge out from the wall and unplug it.
2. Clean the dust and lint off the compresser and everything else.
3. Also clean under the fridge.
4. The frame around the freezer door should cool down.

If the cooling fan was stuck , that may also be a cause for your refrigerator wall becoming hot.Check that too.
Hope My info is useful....Bye

Not cooling after smoke damage


Assuming that the motor is running, my best guess would be that the condenser (a large grid of thin piping) was covered in soot, and should be THOUROUGHLY cleaned, preferably with compressed air.... The condenser will either be underneath the unit, behind a small panel in the front bottom of the unit, or at the back behind a cover at the bottom of the fridge which runs the whoile width. Make sure the fan at the back near the compressor is also running....if the condenser fan is not running when the compressor is running, it won't cool. If the condenser is excessively dirty, it won't cool!
