Hi Missy Blues,

Your Fridge is in major need of defrosting. This will require you to clear the goods out of your Freezer temporarily. I believe you have a Problem with a component is the Auto defrost Circuit. First of all we need to get the frost out. Once you have the Freezer cleared, Turn the freezer off. Place a Hair dryer in the door of the freezer with its nozzle pointing at the back of the freezer compartment. Run the Hairdryer for a couple of hours blowing into the freezer with the freezer door crak open slightly. This should melt all the frist in your freezer. You will probably need some towels to help soak up water. Once the Freezer is defrosted. Remove the panel inside back of the freezer. The section under the icemaker. You will see a radiator coil. Disconnect power to the fridge. At the bottom of this Radiator coil you will see a device bolted to the bottom of the coil with wires going to both ends. This is your Defrost Heater. REmove it. It is a glass tube with a spring looking heater inside. If the spring parts is burned apart, the heater is bad, and that is your problem. Put all the goods back in your freezer, and turn it on. Go to Sears Parts store and get another defrost heater. You will need the model number of your Fridge. Good Luck

How to turn off cooling off light off. My child was leaning against the fridge for a while when stood up straight I saw the cooling off light was on.


Check your user manual, but for my whirlpool it says: If the buttons are inside the fridge, push the FAST COOL and MOISTURE CONTROL buttons at the same time for 3 seconds. Once cooling comes back on, your previous settings will reappear on the display. If the buttons are on the outside of the fridge (as mine are), push the FREEZER TEMP and FRIDGE TEMP buttons at the same time for 3 seconds. Same result as above. Hope that helps.

MAYTAG SIDE BY SIDE MSD2356AE. FREEZER NORMAL TEMP. FRIG. 60 DEGREES.


make sure that there is nothing blocking the flow of air coming in. the fridge is cooled by the air in the freezer. also you might think about replacing the relay on the compressor. it may be going out.

Kenmore 795 freezer on top. Freezer working, temp lights on in fridge, but fridge not cooling and lamp out as well.


If the freezer is located above the fridge, the air from the freezer drops into the fridge to create the cooling in the fridge. So what I would look for is a blocked vent from the freezer to the fridge, which is usually located on the top and or back of the fridge inside of cores. You can get a frost or ice build up in there and block the air flow to the fridge, that is usuall the problem. I would also heck the dial for temp control in the fridge, I know my kids have changed it before on me.

Freezer working but Fridge not cooling... Tried adjusting temp to max cool and nothing. Unblocked vents, still nothing... Pulled off back panel cover to vacuum and brush... still nothing... help??? In case...


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

Amana bz22rw fridge temp fluctuates & is a little warm - freezer is ok should i replace the fridge temp control or the damper


Temp control = controls run time of the compressor and temp of freezer.
damper and cold control = control how cool the fridge is...
also check you fan speed and air flow to the fridge.

Refrigerator Compartment not cooling properly: freezer compartment working properly


Check the freezer section for frost build up, there is probably a problem with the defrost cycle. 1 of 3 things defrost bi metal would be the likely problem.The back panel in the freezer should be removed to see if there is too much frost.

Fridge freezer not cooling from new - buttons not working


Sounds like an air flow problem from the freezer section to the refer section. Check that nothing is blocking the air vents, and that the dampers are operating properly (they control the flow of air). Of course if it's under warranty... call the service techs out.
