Fridge part working freezer not


The fridge is just the end of the freezer evaporator. If the freezer isn't cold inside, check the rear panel. It is probably frozen solid with no air getting through. Switch off, leave doors open for 24 hours and be prepared for lots of water to come out. Clean the condenser and make sure the fan inside is ok. Reset the thermostat to middle of the range and be sure to come back to tell us how you get on.

I have the refrig where the freezer is on the bottom, the bottom is working fine but the top is not getting cool.


a common problem with bottom mount freezers is the door gets left open,open the freezer door and look at the ceiling,is there ice on it and is there also frozen water droplets on the packages,if so the door was left open,you can shut the fridge down or unplug it,remove the food from the freezer,get a hair dryer and blow the hot air onto the back inside wall of the freezer mostly blow it into the open slots in the back wall,it will melt the ice that's in the air ducts,you'll see water dripping down,when it stops you can start the fridge and stick your hand in the top middle of the fridge section to feel if cold air is blowing in,all that it does is there's a fan in the freezer,all it does is blow the cold air from the freezer into the fridge section,if the door was open the warm air gets in and mixes with the cold air and it freezes up the air ducts and blocking them.if this isn't the problem open the freezer door,you should hear the fan blowing,if not you could have a bad fan motor,also put your hand on the back inside wall of the freezer,if there's like frost or snow on the back wall you have a defrost problem,a bad defrost heater,defrost thermostat or timer or board depending what the model is,but most of the time the problem is behind the freezer inside wall,or depending on your model there could be a damper in the fridge section,if it's stuck closed then the cold air won't blow into the fridge section.so first open the freezer door,listen for the fan,if it's blowing,check for frozen water droplets and ice up on the ceiling near the light and on the food packages,if you see this the door was left open,if the fan isn't blowing most likely it could be bad,then check the back inside wall for frost or snow on it,if there's frost on the back wall you have a defrost problem,most likely it will be a bad defrost thermostat or heater,you'll need to check them with a maeter,hope this helps,next time send the model number so i can look up your machine.

Fridge is warm, was collecting water inside. Freezer is working fine. Increased temp but not responding. It is a bottom freezer model


send the model number off of the fridge,if the freezer is working fine then no air is being blown up to the fridge section,all it does is blow cold air from the freezer to the fridge section so either the door was left open and this is very common with a bottom mount freezer or the evap fan isn't blowing or on some models there's a damper inside the fridge section,the damper door opens and closes to let cold air in,when it reaches temp. the door closes,sometimes the door gets stuck in the closed position or the open position and the fridge freezes or gets warm depending on where the door is.first thing open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing,if not you could have a bad evap. fan motor,next look at the ceiling and on the packages,do you see frozen water droplets,if so the door was left open and the air ducts are froze up from the warm air getting in from the door being open and mixing with the cold air freezes up the air ducts,also stick your hand onto the back inside wall of the freezer,if there's like snow or frost on the inside back wall of the freezer you could have a defrost problem,bad defrost thermostat,heater,timer or board depending on the model or last a bad damper,when you open the fridge door there are air ducts usually up top and in the middle you should feel cold air blowing in,this is your problem the air isn't making it into the fridge section.if the door was left open,unplug the fridge,remove the food from the freezer and with a hair dryer heat up the back inside wall of the freezer and blow the hot air into the air vent holes in the back wall to melt out the air ducts,keep heating it up until you don't see any more water dripping,you can see the water dripping through the vent holes.so let me know what you find,send the model number and we can go from there.look up near the ceiling in the fridge section on the right hand wall and you should see a tag with the model and serial numbers,send the full model number so i can see what you have in your machine.

The freezer works well but the fridgedoes not get cold enough


all the fridge does is blow cold air from the freezer down into the fridge section so if the freezer is working then either the evap fan isn't working or the air ducts are frozen up.first thing open the freezer door,you should hear the fan blowing,if not the fan motor could be bad,if it is blowing,touch the back inside wall of the freezer,is there any ice or like snow on it,if so you have a defrost problem,one more thing to check,open the fridge door,look under the bottom draws,is there any water there? or any water dripping into the fridge section from the freezer,if so you have a blocked drain and the air ducts are frozen.let me know what you find,send the model number off of the fridge,open the fridge door and look on the left side up near the ceiling,you should see a tag with the model and serial numbers just send the model
