    Our problem is very similar - the temperature on both the fridge and the freezer is very eratic but the fridge is the main problem because the temperature is currently running at 21 degrees and doesn't seem to be going down. We have taken off the back panel from the freezer section to remove the built up ice, but this still hasn't worked. We don't know what else to do and we would welcome any advice otherwise we will have to consider buying a new one which is not an option at the moment with Christmas around the corner.

I had a similar problem with a top freezer and it was discovered that the fan had actually slipped down on motor shaft and was stuck against the freezer wall. Check to see if there is enough clearance for the fan to actually spin.

We have an Amana bottom load freezer with fridge on top; the freezer maintains its temperature but the fridge does not. What might the problem be?

Start by checking the circulation fan located in the back of the freezer. You may also want to check to see if the vents in the freezer are clear of debris and ice build up. If the fan is not running, remove the fan motor and test it by applying power directly. If the motor runs with power applied directly then you may need a thermostat.

Fan not running in freezer

Good Morning Friend,

I understand the fan is not running in the freezer portion of your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRT21P5A. I see that the freezer is getting cold but the fan does not circulate the cold air. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Turn the power back on and listen for the fan to circulate the air. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully.

-Best Regards-

Upper part of freezer not freezing

  • When the top half of a freezer is not working properly it is a sign that the air circulation within the freezer is not functioning. In other words, the freezer refrigerant is still working properly, but the cold air it produces isn't going anywhere: Instead, it is sinking to the bottom of the freezer (heat rises) where it does an excellent job of keeping that half of the freezer cold while missing the top section entirely.

  • The air circulation problem is usually caused by a fan issue. Find where your fan connects to the refrigerant system and pumps the air out into the freezer. If the fan blades are stuck or frozen, you may be able to loosen them or replace the fan. If the fan works mechanically but does not turn on the problem lies with the motor instead. In this case, you can replace the motor or call a professional it may also be fan or evaporator

Fan underneath frig is running but no cold air is coming into the frig or freezer

The fan that is under the frig is the condensor fan(the fan the cools the condenser coils and the compressor. It does not have a direct effect on the chilled air circulation inside of the frig. The evaporator fan is the unit that circulates the chilled air thru your freezer and frig. I am not sure what make model unit you have, but I have found that this fan motor is 90% of the circulation problems i have seen.

My Jenn Air bottom freezer refrigerator is too warm in the fresh food (upper) compartment. This just occurred today. The freezer works fine. Any ideas?

sounds like the FF(Freezer Fan) is starting to wear out. This fan problem is very hard to diagnose because the fan will still spin but not fast enough to circulate chilled air thru the freezer as well as the refrigerator.
