SOURCE: Fridge is not cool. Freezer has soft ice buildup inside

Losen up the 2 screwws on the back inside of freezer.
push the back slash up and pull down on the top of the plastic fan cover, thats the secret getting the fan cover off its a snap on. Don't break it. but once the cover is off you can see your frozen ice hole under the condenser I used a hair dryer (not recomended near water)and it got the ice melted. worked great.
No more bad milk,,Saved big bucks with alittle good advice, thanks

SOURCE: Freezer does not freeze fast enough, icecream gets soft

Faulty Cold control (Temperature Control)
The cold control is a temperature actuated switch and should open when the set temperature has been achieved. If the control does not open and turn the compressor off, it will continue to run and all items in the fresh food section will begin to freeze.

If the control is not closing, the compressor and all fans will cease to operate. Check the control for continuity.

This is usually not a do it your selfer.

SOURCE: Freezer does not freeze fast enough, icecream gets

Setting the control to 9 may make the freezer ice up too much to work right. You can start with a manual defrost. That takes a long time, because the ice is below the freezer liner, stuck in the coils. You'll have to move your food elsewhere, like a cooler. I always take the freezer apart to get at the coils, use a hair dryer to melt the ice. Then you can check the defrost coil, it's like a toaster element. After all that, check the defrost timer too. It's usually down by the compressor area, about the size of a cell phone. It has a small dial on it that only turns one way. Mark it when the fridge is on with whiteout to see if it moves. It moves real slowly, so you will have to wait a half hour or so.
One way to speed up a defrost is to turn the dial on the defrost timer until it clicks. Then the compressor will turn off and the defrost coil will turn on. The freezer fan should be spinning. Feel the output from the freezer fan- anything? If no flow, you're iced up. Keep checking for flow, eventually it should get cold. When you get good airflow, and maybe it's not so cold anymore, you might be defrosted without having to take the whole thing apart. You may have to turn the dial more than once, if the compressor comes back on before you're defrosted. You can help the defrost with your hair dryer thru the vents in the front of the freezer, but not too hot, you don't want to melt any plastic.

I will need the model number as shown in photo below where the locations are most likely to be. While I am waiting I am going to go over some models like yours to see what may possibly be wrong.

Generally the fans use line voltage, but if you have a controller board and are getting 12 Volts this would be the correct voltage. The problem is the fans. You will need to replace these fans and defrost the freezer and fridge. When the evaporator coils have frozen overdue to insufficent air flow then no fan will be able to cool the fridge. So make sure that once you replace these fans you get a good defrost for at least 8 hours. Unless you use a hair dryer or heat gun to speed up the process. You will find that these fans are about $52.00 each and trying to repair or fix one will only result in a second repair.

Freezer is cold but not keeping icecream frozen.


If, the fresh food section is 34- 38 degrees, then the freezer should be cold enough to keep ice cream solid. All of the cooling capability comes from the freezer section. I, personally, would not waste time or money on a ten year old box. Ten years ago it cost $1000, so, the outlay is $100 per year. Dump the old refrigerator and get a new one.
