You will need a multimeter. check continuity thro defrost heater and thermal fuse in series with it. if it is a electro-mechanical timer to control defrost, then this is the most common fault. if controlled electronically and heater and thermal fuse are ok, then points to a module fault.
also if wiring is plug and socket, check these are ok

Whirlpool American fridge freezer FRSB36AF20/2 Triangle Warning light on and freezer not freezing. Fridge ok


Most common these symptoms point to a unit low on freon. The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer. So there is just enough freon for a good fridge temp but not to freeze water in the freezer.
Second would be the coils froze over due to the defrost circuit not working. Also check the conderser fan in the freezer. The cooling fan in the back bottom, if there is one, may have quit also.

Fridge not getting cold...but freezer is working


the fridge gets its cold air from the freezer fan blowing it through small air passages between the freezer and fridge. when you adjust the temperature in the fridge you are increasing/decreasing the amount of air being let into the fridge. Two common problems that could cause the freezer to freeze but not the fridge getting cool is the freezer coil is frooze like a ice cube blocking the air going to the fridge or freezer fan is not working could be bad or froze up due to too much ice. If fan works after manually defrosting problem could be in the auto defrost mechanism. If fan don't work after manual defrost replace fan. Manual defrost by putting a pot of very hot water in freezer with door closed change water foten until defrosted.

What should I check if the refrigerator is not cooling/working, but the freezer works fine?


first off what kind of frige and model number,the freezer feeds the fridge so no cold air is being blown into the fridge section from the freezer,open the freezer door,if you don't hear the fan blowing you could have a bad evap fan motor,put your hand on the back wall of the freezer,if there's ice or like snow on it you have a defrost problem,bad defrost thermostat,heater,timer or board depending on the machine,this is why i need the model number,also on some machines there is a damper that opens and closes to let the cold air into fridge section or the door was left open and the air vents are froze up,most common on bottom mount freezers,look at the freezer ceiling and packages,if you see frozen water droplets on the ceiling or packages it's a sure sign the door was left open.hope this helps.

Admiral side by side refrigerator model GS 22X8D3 FRIDGE SECTION HAS A POOR COOLING PERFORMANCE, WHEREAS THE FREEZER SECTION WORKS FINE. MOTOR DOES NOT CYCLE ALWAYS ON.


Greetings,

in most self defrosting refrigerators..when the fresh food is warm, but freezer is ok...the first thing to look at is...a frosted or froze over evaporator in freezer. this is because, the cold air comes from freezer into ff section. it comes in and drops to floor of ff and is drawn back into freezer thru coil and if its frozen,,,no air can circulate...remove rear freezer panel and look for ice blockage

There are several other things. A fan motor not coming on will do this.. a stuck closed baffle in ff section can keep air out. check it and if froze up..there is a reason, and you need to find out why or it will happen again...check heater, defrost thermostat, check defrost control

make sure the damper vent door located between the freezer and refrige compartments is opening and letting in cold air from the freezer,if they ice up they can stick shut and not allow air flow,this door is behind a plastic grille an a hair dryer works great to defrost them

clean cond coil under back of fridge.

Bosch Fridge Freezer: Fridge Not Cooling


Your refrigerator's cool is provided by your freezer section through a damper - there should not be excessive frost on the cooling coils - the most common problem is a defrost timer - are you absolutely sure the noise you hear is the defrost this is the first thing to check, defrost control and its components, is it properly shutting off or stuck on during operation - the next thing to check is for possible sealed system problems / small leaks, door gasket seals, etc.

The fact that it started to work once you manually defrosted is the key here - an over forsted evap will cause the problems you describe most commonly - so have your defrost system checked completly and properly - that should solve the problem. followed by checking door gaskets, damper and sealed system - if only part of the coils are frosted as opposed to the entire surface, that usually a clue to sealed system leak - yes 10C is quite warm for a refrigerator. It should be between 34F-40F, optimal is 34F. And freezer section no warmer than 10F, optimal at 0F (-18C)

Freezer cold, fridge warm


Hi, You have a self defrosting problem.
Remove the rear inside freezer panel and check continuity on the defrost element and bi-metal switch.The bi-metal has to be tested cold. If there is continuity on both parts, you will need to change the defrost timer.
The most common part that goes bad is the element. I hope this helps you. Please leet me know if I can assist you further.

Frozen vents from freezer to fridge


you most likely have a defrost problem.or a clogged drain.you need to check your defrost heater defrost timer and thermostat.if ice is formed over drain then you can unclog drain with hot water.you will see when it is unclogged,water will run down drain without running over into bottom of freezer.
