Condensor fan running all day


when you say you removed the cardboard, did you remove the back panel that covers the compressor, fan, and coils from the back? If so that is what is causing it to run too much, this will also effect the cooling.

Hot strip between doors


First , remove the bottom kick plate , and vacuum the coils . They have to be clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . Then pull the refrig out , and remove the lower panel , to expose the compressor and cooling fan . This fan HAS to be working , to cool the compressor AND the coils . If not running ( fan ) , check for an obstruction of paper , insulation , etc , and remove the cause . If not being obstructed , and not running , replace the fan motor . Afterwards , be sure to reinstall the back panel , as this panel , helps pull the airflow across the coils , and compressor . The strip between the doors , has part of the coils behind it , and will get hot , if the coils in front are dirty , or , the fan behind the refrig is not working .

Ice melts, then refreezes. Rubber Is HOT


Pull the refrig out , and remove the back panel . Is the fan that cools the compressor working ? Is the coil roll clean ? If the fan is not working , then the problem is probably the main control board . Behind the 8"X10" panel , above the compressor area . Remove the cover , and look for a burnt resistor , just to be safe . If this fan does not work , then the coils and the refrigerant line running between the doors , will get very hot .

Refrig cooling


Sounds like the evaporator fan is not working. Check to see if you can hear the fan running in the freezer. If not running, try removing the panel in the back of the inside freezer and manually spin the fan blade . This sometimes works.

No air coming into refrig to cool


We pulled the back panel in the freezer and found the coils frozen. We defrosted the coils and the fridge started working. We will be getting a new timer. Thanks

Poorly Cooling Side Bu Side


the coils are actually behind the unit next to the fan assy(sorta a plate rolled over it self opposed to conventional coils on this particular unit).tyr removing hte lower panel in freezer section, check the evaporator.Should be an even frost pattern across hte entire coil, no frost with execption of the top 1 or 2 coils, is an indication of a sealed system issue( covered under 5 yr manufacture warr usually). excessive frost (cpmpartment completly frozen over) is a sign of bad defrost system.perhaps even the fan not circulating the cold air into the refrig compartmant

change the adaptive defrost board located in the upper right corner of refrig under the panel. remove panel by pulling on panel towards you from the finger holes in the rear. remove two 1/4 inch screws and two phillips screws. defrost manually with hair dryer behind panel in freezer.
