1. is the freezer cold? yes. checkto see if freezer fan is operating. open fridge and listen for a fan. if freezer is not cold listen for the compressor to see if it runs. located behind fridge on bottom left. If compressor clicks replace switch on compressor. If compressor doesnt run then the problem is in your defrost circuit.

Could be due to ice build up jamming the fan. take back panel off and check for ice. if ice present the defrost system has failed. also on some models, the fan stops when door is opened. check door switch is operating

Danby fridge old model - freeze working but fridge section does not

Yes it has a fan you should here it and feel it. It sounds like your defrost coil may have gone out. Take the back pannel of the freezer off and see if it is clogged with frost.

Hi my fridge freezer isn't cooling or freezing it seems like its trying to go on but then stops again

Hi Gerardine.
The evaporator fan motor circulates the cold air from the coils thru the compartment. If there is only one evaporator it is in the freezer side. If the fan is not working, no cold air will get to the refrigerator compartment. The freezer may still get cold.
or go to this link and have a read up.

RF265AARSXAC The freezer is not freezing.

looks as evaporator fan is working. have you ever clean condensor under the fridge. possibility it is pluged with dust and not allowing compressor to cool down.
Also check the fan at the back of the fridge beside the compressor. see if it is working

Samsung rs2630sh not cooling or freezing

If it has fan to deliver cold air, and it is not working, cold air is stuck on the begining. So your fan could be dead. And I suppose, that compressor is running all the time. Even compressor could stert freezing if fan does not deliver cold air in fridge. The other option is, that there is not enough gas in the compressor. In this case compressor vould not be freezing, but line, going out of compressor has to be hot, if it is not, there is no gas.

I Have a Haier Refrigerator, not sure if it is this model it looks the same but is stainless steel. Recently the fridge has stopped cooling. Have had it for a few years and has of late it slowly began to...

It sounds as if the fan has ceased working. If it is freezing the bottom, then the refrigerant has not escaped. If it was the compressor, the motor would have become louder and begun to rattle. If you can turn it off for a day, then turn it back on. If the fan motor starts to work, it may just have been frozen up, replace your seals . If the fan motor does not start then well it will not. Try replacing the fan motor.

Top box stopped cooling after about 6-8 mos,my friend lives way out in the boonies and has asked me to look at it,trying to get ideas on what to look for when I get there.Does the pc board control the fan...

I have had a problem with this. the fan freezes up and stops sending cold air to the fridge. I was able to use a screwdriver and hair dryer to break up the ice, but it will keep on freezing up until the initial problem is fixed. (that's what I'm looking for now...)

Hotpoint RFA52 fridge freezer

if you cant hear the motor/compressor running when energised then its likely to be a thermostat fault... but on energising the system if you hear a buzz then a click then its more seriously the main motor... turn off at mains for 5 mins then turn on... this should tell you either way

Not cooling

Cooling fan, behind internal plasic panel is frozen up, happens with me regularly, self defrost function not working properly, i'm just fixing mine as I write. I have found that bottom drain hole was all full of ice also. Have cleared with anti-freeze/hot water till runs through. Take out all shelves, remove back panel, there are screws behind chrome bezel and also inde-odoriser recesses (those two square plastic covers). Unscrew plastic water chiller, be careful not to damage pipes. Remove the back platic moulding, unclipping wire connectors and cooling fan is fastened to back, it will be frozen up with ice! I use hair dryer/ de-icer to thaw, dry off as much as possible. Beware, moulding is mainly polystyrene, i.e fragile. I suspect that I keep getting problems because I didn't clear out the bottom drain hole, so it did not defrost. Tell tale sign is noisy fan (hitting ice) which eventually freezes up and stops blowing cold air which causes fridge to stop cooling, compressor still works though!

If yes, a defrost parts problem.
Check the freezer fan. Is it running?
If no, replace the freezer fan.
Check the condenser fan at the compressor. Is it running?
If no, is compressor hot?
If compressor is hot replace condenser fan motor.

RS21 DCNS FRIDGE COOLING FAULT

There is a fan behind the plastic. This distributes the cold air throughout the fridge. What happens is this fan stops turning due to freezing up. A temp solution is to unplug the samsung for 6-12 hours to allow the ice to melt from around the fan. This is a known design fault. It is easy to dismantle the plastic cover and defrost the frozen fan with a hair dryer, this way the fridge will only be off for about an hour
