SOURCE: KENMORE MODEL 596 BOTTOM FREEZER, FRIDGE NOT COOLING

The freezer will stay cold because a small amount of cold air will be forced through the frost but that will not be enough to make it up to the refrigerator portion. You can defrost the unit by removing the metal panel and allowing the frost to melt. Careful use of a hairdryer can speed up this process. This will likely be a temporary fix. The root cause of excessive frost can be caused by a bad door seal or a defective defrost circuit.

First check that the door seal is good by closing the door on a dollar bill at several points around the door, both on the freezer and refidgerator door. If you can pull the bill out with no resistance, the door is not making a good seal. Inspect the seal and make sure there isn't anything stopping the door from closing such as food, or a shelf not pushed in all the way.

If the door seal is good, the defrost system is likely defective. The defrost system has three main parts, the defrost heater, thermostat, and timer. None of these parts are particularly expensive, or difficult to replace you feel comfortable with repairing it yourself. If you can troubleshoot this by manually starting the defrost cycle. Let me know if you would like this procedure.

SOURCE: fridge is warm even when i adjust temp. control.freezer is good.

if your fridge has 2 set of dials one numbers and the other letters than you need to adjust the dial that has letters on it. If the fan in your freezer is not blowing, then it won't force the cold air from the freezer to the fridge. Make sure fan blows then adjust the letter knob.

SOURCE: Electrolux ER 7626 Fridge not cooling

Hello,

On these units there is a defrost heater which comes on after about 12/14 hours running time depending on usage.It would cut in for about 15 mins just to get rid of ice accumulated around the Evaporator.This heater or the timer has failed and ice has got between the duct. supplying cold air to the fridge unit.The best thing to do is to defrost unit for 24 hours and then try it and see if you can feel cold air coming up into the fridge.The repair for this is not that successful and you would be better off defrosting unit like a normal fridge/freezer.

Hope this was a help.

Need to order main control board part for Electrolux fridge but don't have model or serial number on fridge.

Hello Sandra, you usually always can locate the model number on the rear of the fridge, I'm not sure if you have looked their, but I'm sure you did if it's missing the only thing I can suggest I s you take several pictures of the Fridge front rear and inside so who ever is supplying the part can identify the model, I'm not sure if you have removed the main control panel if not then this is certainly the best option and take a picture of it as close as you can, the majority of all circuit boards have a code number to identify them tis would be your very best option, if as you say their is no code or model information on the rear of the fridge. I hope this is of some help to you.

Good luck on getting your part.

Not defrosting

First, locate the defrost timer which may hidden behindcorners of the fridge at the back bottom, in some models located in the ceilingof the fresh food section or behind the cold control cover. Once you locate thedefrost timer, slowly turn the screw in the middle of the defrost timer withstraight screwdriver until the fridge shuts off. Now it's in defrost. If thedefrost heater(s) starts, replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. Ifthe heater(s) does not start, unplug wire cord to check ohm test for continuityof heater. If continuity is there, plug cord wire which gives power 120volts(check specification) to heater. If heater no starts, bypass defrost thermostatby join the 2 wires in the defrost thermostat. If the heater now comes on, replacethe defrost timer and defrost thermostat. If the heater itself is bad, replaceit. Thanks and hope helpful.

I have a whirlpool side by side fridge. This

On some models you have a mother board located on the back outer section of the refrigerator that can be faulty. There is a tech sheet located behind the kick plate or under the front of the ref bottom to refer to. If someone olays with the digital controls you may have to reprogram the mother board, which is explained in the tech sheet.

Fridge and freezer no longer cold

Sounds like a bad compressor relay on the main control board . To verify , pull the refrig out and unplug . Remove the 8X10 small cover , to expose the control board . Look for the blue plug with 3 larger wires going to it and disconnect from the board . Looking at the plug , you will see : wire1 , wire2 , space , wire 3 . Use a jumper from wire1 to wire3 and plug the refrig back in . This will send power directly to the compressor , indicating the board is bad if the compressor starts . If it starts , remove the control board and look on the solder side just opposite the " black boxes " and look for a bulls eye ( pin in the middle where the solder has melted away from it . Resolder this pin . If no bulls eye , replace the main board as the relay is shorted internally . If replaceing the board , your model NUMBER is important to get the correct board . Only 2 boards but model number necessary .

Electrolux ERL6296XK1 Fridge Freezer has flashing error code E F Cannot reset the error so not sure if fridge / freezer are actually working. It did have a problem with the ice maker over filling before...

Had the same problem with an ew26ss65g50. unplug the machine and let it defrost. then plug back in after an hour or so. problem is the evaporator fan gets iced up from water spilling in/on it and air does not circulate. makes a horrible grinding noise before it shuts down. anyway, my icemaker is off right now and that solved the shutdown problem. working on repairing it.

EF error code on frigidaire refrigerator, help!!!

My Frigidaire also got the dreaded E-F error code and stopped cooling. Technician over the phone told me to unplug it for 5 minutes and then plug it back in to see if the control board would reset itself. Did that with no luck. Unplugged the refrigerator last night while I tranferred my food to a spare fridge in the garage. Plugged the fridge back in this morning (9hrs later) and it works fine with no error codes. It looks like the control board has reset itself but how long it takes...I dont know. 10.. maybe 15 minutes? Well more than 5 at least. Guy over the phone told me that you can buy DRY ICE at a local grocery store and put it some in your freezer and a little bit in the frigdge to keep the food cold for a day. I had a spare fridge but I thought that was a good tip for anyone that needs to buy time for a tech to come repair the fridge. I had just bought $300 in groceries the night before so that tip would have come in handy if I did not have the spare fridge. I have no idea what the EF error was for but it's been 5 hours since I plugged my fridge back in and it's running fine so I'll cross my fingers. Got around to cleaning the fridge and plugging in a surge protector too. Hope this post helps someone out there.
