The freezer works fine but the refrigerator will not get cold.


On most new refrigerators there is damper that opens and allows the cold air from the freezer to circulate through the fresh food side.
I have seen this same problem caused by over stuffing either the freezer side and or the fresh foods side. On the sides of the fresh foods section there are normally vents which allow cold air from the freezer side to flow. If these are covered up, the air cannot circulate and without air circulation, the temp rise.

Both freezer side and fresh food side work because air is allowed to circulate around your product. I saw a refrigerator that the bottom half was 70 degrees and top half 38 degrees. The shelf about halfway down was completely blocking airflow. Threw out a bunch of boldly items and bags, rearranged items so air could flow and unit started working properly again.

If the damper is not opening, I have seen them freeze shut. It may have to be thawed.

There is also on some models a recirculation fan that gets turned on to circulate cold air from freezer. If this fan burns out or is blocked, it may need to be replaced.

You can go to searspartsdirect.com with your make and model number and get a complete drawing and parts breakdown for most refrigerators. And more important, you can buy them and have the part typically in two days at your door.
Hope this help!

My drip pan under the frig over flows with water then on to my floor. both fans work. Air flow from freezer to frig and back seams good. Tube going to drip pan is clean. Seals looks good and clean. MOD...


I had a similar problem with my Whirlpool model 6ED25DQFW side by side refrigerator/freezer with ice maker/water dispenser. Water was slowly pooling under the refrigerator under the freezer section. The defrost drain pipe was not blocked, the condenser fan was running, the drip pan was not leaking.
The source of the leak was found to be the icemaker solenoid block plastic body which had a pinhole leak.
To fix requires either plastic welding, or replacement of the solenoid block plastic body.
To access the solenoid block firstly requires removal of the cardboard cover, located at the lower rear of the refrigerator.

Freezer working, but fridge is not. when you turn it off then back on its kicking on but fridge is not getting cold.


Hi,

Check the air return on the bottom left wall of the refrigerator side. Check for cold air flow at the top of the refrigerator when the compressor is running. If you feel no air flow, open the freezer door and see if you detect significantly more air flow after opening the freezer door. This could indicate a return air flow restriction and make sure that there no blocking of air vent at the top of refrigerator section that supplies the cold air from the freezer.Check the door seal gasket on the refrigerator for leaks.

If there is still same problem then you need to replace evaporator fan.

Hope this helps.

FREEZER FREEZERS BUT THE REFIGERATOR WONT GET COLD


Hi,

Check the air return on the bottom left wall of the refrigerator side. Check for cold air flow at the top of the refrigerator when the compressor is running. If you feel no air flow, open the freezer door and see if you detect significantly more air flow after opening the freezer door. This could indicate a return air flow restriction and make sure that there no blocking of air vent at the top of refrigerator section that supplies the cold air from the freezer.Check the door seal gasket on the refrigerator for leaks.
If the vents and air flow paths in the refrigerator are proper, then check the back wall of the freezer for excessive frost. A defrost system problem could be preventing the refrigerator from cooling properly. If you do see excessive frost on the evaporator in the freezer, you may be able to restore proper cooling in the refrigerator by storing your food in an ice chest and then shutting off the refrigerator/freezer and letting the unit completely defrost for about 24 hours. Leave the doors open for air circulation. After the frost on the evaporator has defrosted, plug the unit back in and see if the refrigerator and freezer will cool properly.
If there is still same problem then you need to replace evaporator fan.

Hope this helps.

My refrigerator is not working, but my freezer is


Usually there is a air flow problem from it not defrosting(all the evaporator coils are frosted up with moisture preventing air flow-defrost problem ) or the fan motor is not turning in the back of the freezer section above the evaporator....
All of the cooling in the top or refrigerator section is done by air flow circulating across the coils in the freezer to get temps down to 38 degrees or so. You have to listen for the fan running in the freezer section, feel for air at the top back of the refrigerator(the damper control) Sometimes a bi-metal thermostat in the defrost circuit is also used in series with the evaporator fan motor, if it is open the fan will not run........(this I have seen) Also check the vents for the return air to the freezer(behind the crispers are not covered accidentally) Hope this helps........

Whirlpool Model ED5SHAXML12 is freezing food in refrigerator even when dial is at off. Happened from one day to the next.


At the refrig controls , the freezer control , controls how much air goes into the refrigerator section . Open the refrig door , and up at the top left , put your hand over the damper (air vent) . Turn the freezer control from high to low , and feel the difference in the air flow . If you turn your freezer control to a lower setting , less cold air will enter the refrig . Think of it as : the freezer control adjusts the temperature , and the refrig control , tells how long to run the compressor . In actuality , this is how it works . However , with the dial (refrigerator thermostat) in the off position and refrig still running , this indicates a bad thermostat . Pt # 2198202 .

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.

your  problem on this is the main control in the compressor compartment. unplug your refrig then remove this control unplug all connectors and reconnect. this will probably get you working temporarily In almost every case I've seen we ended up replacing the control board. thx peyton

Ice build up in back section of a Whirlpool no frost top freezer refrigerator 66"hx30"wx27"d


your sure the defrost cycle works? sounds to me its not. you need to remove the freezer back and check the defrost components. or put it in the defrost cycle and see if it is working. to get that much frost as you describe the dor would have to be left open. also check all door seals. let me know what you find and we can go from there
