    THE BUTTONS YOU PRESS TO DISPENSE THE ICE HAD BEEN BEEPING FOR AGES BUT NOW HAS STOPPED.THE FAN AT THE BASE OF THE BACK OF FRIDGE IS BLOWING.THE BOTTOM SHELVES OF THE FREEZER WILL FREEZE THE TOP SHELVES WILL ONLY MAKE ITEMS COLD AND THE FRIDGE PART IS NOT COLD AT ALL.IT SEEMS THAT THE COLDNESS IS NOT BEING DISTRIBUTED AROUND THE FRIDGE...DOES THAT MAKE SENSE??

The unit is not defrosting because it needs one of three parts that make the evaporator defrost every about 8 to 10 hours depending on the refrigerator, 1. defrost thermostat which snaps on the evaporator coil behind the rear panel in the freezer, 2. defrost heater which is also behind the rear panel in the freezer, the heater melts the frost on evaporator, 3. defrost timer or defrost control which is either on the back of the fridge behind a small panel that must be removed to access to the control or it's in the fresh food section.

I have a 23' free standimg dispensing side by side ref. my ref is not cooling but the freeze part is working


when you open the freezer door do you hear the fan blowing?all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,the evap fan blows the cold air from the freezer and into the fridge side,there are ducts on the bottom left side where the air return sto the freezer,if that's blocked the fridge will get warm,also if the fan is blowing depending on your model you could have a damper,it's in the fridge section up top where the cold air blows into,all it is is a door that opens and closes to let the air in when the fridge section gets warm and then it closes when it's cold enough,if the damper is bad it won't open and let the air in,sometimes it gets stuck in the open position and things start to freeze in the fridge section.if you can't figure it out send the model number and i can see what model you have,open the fridge door,look up on the right side near the ceiling and you should see a tag with the model number.good luck and have a great weekend.also from the bottom up in the freezer,remove the second bin of food and touch the back inside wall of the freezer,if there's frost or like snow on the back inside wall of the freezer you have a defrost problem,let me know what you find.

The freezer works well but the fridgedoes not get cold enough


all the fridge does is blow cold air from the freezer down into the fridge section so if the freezer is working then either the evap fan isn't working or the air ducts are frozen up.first thing open the freezer door,you should hear the fan blowing,if not the fan motor could be bad,if it is blowing,touch the back inside wall of the freezer,is there any ice or like snow on it,if so you have a defrost problem,one more thing to check,open the fridge door,look under the bottom draws,is there any water there? or any water dripping into the fridge section from the freezer,if so you have a blocked drain and the air ducts are frozen.let me know what you find,send the model number off of the fridge,open the fridge door and look on the left side up near the ceiling,you should see a tag with the model and serial numbers just send the model

I have a magic chef refrigerator that is not cooling. The freezer is working but nothing is staying cold in the frig. Could this be the thermostat?? Don't want to replace frig for a number of reasons. ...


next time send the model number,where is the freezer is it on top or bottom or side by side,anyway all the fridge does is get cold in the freezer and the evaporator fan blows cold air from the freezer into the fridge section and then it returns to the freezer just goes around until it gets cold enough and then the t-stat tells it to shut down so if the freezer is cold you either have a bad fan motor,open the freezer you should hear the fan blowng around in there if not the evap fan motor is bad,also touch the back inside wall of the freezer if there's any frost or ice on the back inside wall you have a defrost problem,bad timer or board,bad defrost thermostat or a bad defrost heater,the ice doesn't melt off of evap coil because one of the parts have failed,the air ducts get blocked with ice and the cold air can't blow into the fridge section,or if you see ice on the ceiling,side and back walls the door was left open and the air ducts blocked with ice,or one more thing if the freezer is on top and you have water dripping into the fridge section the drain in the freezer is blocked and the defrost water can't go down the drain hose,the water is freezing the air ducts up,the drain has to be cleared and all the ice has to be melted out,and yes there is one more thing it could be, some fridges have a damper in them,all it is is a door that opens and closes to let the cold air from the freezer blow into the fridge section so this is why you have to send the model number.but your problem is the cold air in the freezer isn't getting blown into the fridge section because the fan isn't working or the air ducts are blocked with ice.

Freezer is cold but not keeping icecream frozen.


If, the fresh food section is 34- 38 degrees, then the freezer should be cold enough to keep ice cream solid. All of the cooling capability comes from the freezer section. I, personally, would not waste time or money on a ten year old box. Ten years ago it cost $1000, so, the outlay is $100 per year. Dump the old refrigerator and get a new one.

Admiral side by side


All the cold air from your freezer gets pushed into the fridge with a fan in your freezer section. So your problem is from the fact that this cold air isn't get to your fridge.
- the door that allows this cold air into the fridge, normally in the top left corner of the fridge, is stuck shut and needs replacement.
-the freezer isn't defrosting and restricting the air flow
-the temp controller for the fridge is damaged and thinks that the fridge is cold enough.
