Does it work o/k on 120v? If it does then you may only need to have the burner serviced which entails pulling the burner and jet apart and giving it a good clean out. If the fridge heats up on 120v but does not cool, then you have a major problem with the cooling system and can be expensive to repair

My freezer is freezing like it should. The fridge however is warm. What would be the problem?


Be sure there's no excessive frost on it cause it may weaken cold air flow around.
Also do not load your fridge with too many unnecessary food stuff.
Arrange food stuff in order and do not block those air vent flowing that will hindrance flow.
Check if the fan is running smoothly.
Thanks, it's a pleasure to help you.

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.

The freezer side does not freeze on the top shelf. The refrigerator freezes everything in the bottom but reads 47 degrees and doesn't cool the top shelves. The fan under the fridge runs fine.


Behind the back wall of the freezer about halfway down, probably behind the light bulb (if there is one there) there is a fan. My guess is that the fan isn't working, or is slow. To test, open the freezer door, then hold the door switch closed and listen for the fan.

This fan should be blowing air up the back of the freezer, and send some of the cold air through a vent at the top of the freezer into the fridge. The air then descends through the fridge and reenters the freezer through a vent at the bottom. If the fan is broken, or if the upper vent is somehow blocked or broken, the cold air will enter (rather than exit) the fridge side at the bottom vent. Because cold air tends to descend and warm air rises, the cold air will freeze the stuff at the bottom of the fridge, and the thermostat (at the top of the fridge) will say it is warm.

Refrigerator not cold/Freezer cold.


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp .

.
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

It sounds like the fan in your freezer is not working so it can't get the cold air to the frig or your coils are not defrosting and it is stopped u and cant blow air into te frig, One way to check if you hear the fan and know that it is working open the frig and put your hand up near the vent to see if you can fill cold air if you can't now open the freezer door if you can feel the cold air or more air r coils then you could before then your coils are stoped up the unit is not defrosting.

Freezer is working fine but the fridge has stoped workin the model number is enb5289x


I was unable to locate your specific model number but the following rules apply. The usual cause of this is a blockage in the air flow from the freezer to the fridge side.

1. Possible stick baffle valve. This a the vent that allows air to enter at the top of the fridge from the freezer. Check it for obstruction. Alternately if the return vent is blocked the same problem will occur.

2. a defrost problem will cause the air circulation to stop. This can usually be seen by a large amount of frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. This will require a more thorough diagnosis as the circuit contains several parts which could fail.

3. Bad circulation fan. This will not force the air to circulate causing a warm fridge and a cold freezer.

Cold freezer/warm refrigerator


Same problem with Frigidaire Gallery model#GLRT182SAW5 (dated 2002 on back of case)

Vents were blocked with ice. Vents (from top compartment to lower) located behind light. You can check by poking a chopstick up the (2) holes; be careful not to hit fan blades.

Solution:

- took freezer coil cover off in back; checked that defrost heater element was working (marked and rotated the timer in the hole next to light); checked that fan working. Found ice in the vents and defrost drip area. Got it out with hair dryer.

- cleaned compressor coils in back (check fan is rotating; also tweaked some of the compressor tubing bends to make them more smooth - read somewhere about a manufacturing defect ...); blew out drip tube from defroster while down there.

- Set the freezer control to WARM and the refrig control to COLD (THIS SHOULD IMPROVE AIR FLOW FROM TOP TO BOTTOM).

- Put thermometers in top and bottom. Checked that refrigerator cycles (not running continuously). Checked that cold air is coming down from (2) vents behind light.

OK: so far, so good. Lower compartment is 40 or under. Top is under 18.

CONCLUSION: Suspect marginal design. Had problems with another similar model where defroster ice doesn't drain correctly, pools and refreezes. Leading to blocked vents as well as blocked defroster drain and similar problem including dripping water from top to bottom and warm bottom.

MAYBE KEEPING THE FREEZER CONTROL AT WARM GETS AROUND THE PROBLEM?? ANYWAY, ITS WORKING FOR ME FOR NOW !!

Freezer working fine, but Refrigerator no longer cooling


Sounds like there's an airflow problem to the top section. Things that cause no cold air to the top fridge section are... frozen up coils completely blocking most of air flow (defrost cycle not working), evap fan not working to blow air up to fridge, air control dampers in fridge closed or not working properly, or frozen air ducts supply/return. Pull the whole drawer out the bottom and take the rear inside back off to expose the coils. If they are frozen solid the defrost t-stat or defrost timer could be bad (heat element not usually bad). If there is a nice white frost all over evenly then that's OK. Check that the fan is running when the compressor is running to blow the air up and that there are no blocked air ducts, etc. If all that is good, check if you can feel good air flow from the upper vents with the lower door closed (that shows there is no blockage and the fan is running).
