The fridge turns on (power) light is on the compresor is on but the fan on the freezer is not powering on. i cleaned the fridge and may have got water on some of the parts i took the back panel off in the freezer when i cleaned it and the section that has the light and seting switch in the refrigirating area. i left it off for a week to dry off. when i turned it back on it would not cool at all. can you tell me why its not cooling the fridge or freezer at all ?
Try pressing light blub switch whist doors are open as fan will only start when doorsclosed. If compreesor is running but not chilling it is either the compreesor has gone and wont be pumping or it has lost its refigerant. Hope this helps
I hope someone reads this: My Frigidaire upright (FFU17), 3-years-old, stopped freezing. Light on, compressor running but no fan. Took everything out and spun the defrost timer a few times; still didn't work. Couldn't find a reset button. With no time to get it fixed before everything defrosted, I was ready to replace it immediately. Then I thought of one last trick; I gave it a severe beating with the palm of my hand -- the fan started. Thank you, Jesus.

If both of your fans and the compressor is not running you are having one of two problems.
1st and most usual problem is faulty defrost timer. To check this you must find where your defrost timer is located (usually this is mounted in the fridge section on the celing near the thermostat) Take a flat head screwdriver and turn the timer untill the fridge comes on. If you turn it and it clicks and the fridge comes on you should replace the defrost timer.
2nd you may have a faulty thermostat. To check this you need to locate the thermostat in your fridge (this is the one that supplies power to all the components) find where the two wires connect in to it. Disconnect power and disconnect thoes two wire. With a ohm meter or a multi meter your need to read continuity across the two spades on the thermostat at the same time turn the knob on the thermostat untill you hear an audiable beep from the meter or you read resistance across the two spades.
From what you have stated above I believe your problem is going to be a faulty defrost timer.
its the compresor packed up,,,if this compresor is not pumping freezer gas around the pipe work the freezer wont work sorry but a new compresor is not a cheep thing to have fitted as it will need a re-gas as well
That noise is typical when the compresor is trying to start but it doesn't , it could be the condensing fan motor that doesn't work and the compresor goes off on overload ; a common problem with this compresors is the relay (mounted at the side of the compresor behind a black plastic cover) goes bad , this you can replace is about $20 , and if still the compresor won't start you will need to put another one and this is an expensive job.
If the compresor is trying to start and it won't you 'll heard a click and the compresor will be very hot ,that means that the relay is bad or the compresor is stuck or burned and needs to be replaced, but first before replacing the compresor try with the relay (no more than $20).But if the lights and fan inside the fridge work and the compresor won't start and is not hot ,the problem is in the cold con trol (you can put a jumper wire between the two wires to the cold control and if the compresor starts thats your problem) after all this if still the compresor won't start could be that the timer is stock in the defrost position.
If the compresor is very hot and won't start,the clicking you heard is the overload at the compresor that goes on & off beacause the relay ,that makes the compresor start is bad or the compresor is bad ,if you know how check the compresors coil if not try replacing the relay with a same replacement(no more than $20 or $30) if still won't start the compresor needs to be replaced.
servis frostfree fridge freezer not working after 2weeks holiday returned it had completely defrosted fridge & freezer power supply still connected. warning light on. done all the trouble shooting in the srvice manual still want go cold or freeze. light on in the fridge, no water in the rear tray & cleaned the overflow pipe??. Model No M0330-ALU 5yrs old. think it has 2 seperate thermostats, surely they wont both have gone at the same time???????
If the refrigerator cooling is poor, it may be a problem with the thermostat, the compressor, or the evaporator fan. If ice is accumulating at the back of the fridge, that can also be a reason for poor cooling.
See aso the links below for a more detailed explanation:
Check freezer... for Frost build up and if Fan is blowing,
Check condenser... To make sure clean, and the fan is blowing (by compressor),
Check recirclating Vents in refrigerator... to make sure theres no blockage,
CONTROLS ...should be in the middle setting,
YOU CAN TRY turning FREEZER CONTROL
To A WARMER FREEZER SETTING Allowing.. MORE AIR.. to refrigertor side
