Hi Kim, Before you check out the link below, Read about your refrigerator not cooling?Is your older or newer model refrigerator plugged in, getting power, the lights are on inside but the fridge will not cool and the freezer won't freeze? If your refrigerator or freezer has suddenly stopped cooling and the freezer won't freeze, we have multiple solutions for you.If you hear a clicking sound coming from the back of your refrigerator/freezer, then the problem is most likely the compressor is overheating or not getting proper power and will not start. The compressor is the component on your refrigerator that allows your refrigerator to cool. If this component is not working properly your refrigerator will stop cooling. Most of the time the compressor is not the component that has failed.

SOURCE: Side by side Sub Zero not cold enough.

How old is "OLDER" ? If there is no frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer you could have one of two problems. On older units the compressor wears out with years of service and no longer pumps efficiently. Or it could possibly be low on refrigerant charge. ether one of these two problems is a sign that is time to update to new unit.

If you have frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer section you then would have a problem in the defrost circuit attributed to the timer, defrost heaters or defrost thermostat.

SOURCE: freezer to cold refrigerator not cold enough

sounds like your defrost timer is not working properly . Most fridge/freezers the fridge gets cooled from the cool air from the freezer . But when the defrost timer is not working properly the section between the fridge and freezer freezes up and hence doesnt allow the flow of cool air into the fridge. The defrost timer can be easily replaced.

SOURCE: INSIDE FREEZER COILS ARE FREEZING UP AND FRIG WONT STAY COLD.

Classic symptoms -

Chances are if they are getting cool, then later not, and there is a large accumulation of frost -

1) the evaporator fan in the freezer is not running
2) Defrost heater has failed
3) Defrost sensor has failed
4) Defrost timer/refrigerator control has failed.

Check for ice build-up on the back wall of the freezer. If there is ice, unplug or turn the unit off for 6-8 hours with the doors open (put any food in a cooler with ice to maintain). Note water may come out of the refrigerator.
Plug the unit back in or turn it back on, close the doors, and check temperature after a couple of hours of operation. If all OK, you will need to have the above tested, or, if you know how to use a multimeter and can read a schematic/wiring diagram, I can instruct you on how to check the above. Please provide specific unit Model number to proceed further.

Your defrost element is probably faulty, this is in the freezer compartment at the back and behind a removeable panel. You should change both the element and the defrost limiting thermodisc at the same time.

SOURCE: Fan running,both cold settings at 4 , freezer 14 degrees C

you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.

Why is freezer/Frig at 51/59 degrees with both fans running?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRT18G6JB6, is not cooling well. I also see that you have checked the gaskets, cleaned the condenser coil, and manually defrosted your refrigerator. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why it is not cooling. Hope this is helpful,

-Best Regards-

Frig & freezer not cooling enough. Ice forming in back of bottom freezer.


You need to have the defrost cycle checked.( heater, limit stat, timer) If the frig can't defrost air can't move across your coils to cool properly. To temporarily get by until you can get a repairman, use a blow dryer to melt the ice build up. Once melted it will work normally for about 2 days till it freezes up again.

Maytag top freezer frig not getting cold enough. evaporator ice free, condencer dust free, all fans running, compressor running, freezer sitting at 15 and frig at 35, on coldest setting


Hi,

I have a few questions for you:
1. What are the settings at currently, Freezer must be set at half way only, fridge at at half or only one higher.
2. In the freezer, do you have a full frost pattern across the entire evaporator?
3. At what temperature is this unit running in? (what part of the country is this unit, a garage unit, basement, kitchen...ect..) This is important as the compressor need to be at about 120 degrees to effective move refrigerant.

Get back to me if you have more questions or answer I can help you with.
Good luck.

Freezer not cold enough


setting the freezer at 7 opens the baffle from the freezer to the fridge to make the fridge colder. It works completely opposite than a person would think. Feel in the back of the fridge with it on this setting. The freezer is dumping all its cold air into the fridge thus equalizing the two parts. if you move the selector to 1, you should feel the air from the freezer cut off in the fresh food compartment. try a setting in the middle and let sit for 24 hours. Hope this helps

High temp


If there was frost on the back wall of the freezer, you have a defrost problem occurring. Either your timer is not telling it to defrost or the defrost thermostat or heater have failed. The immediate (but temporary) solution is to pull everything out of the freezer, remove the screws holding the back wall into place and CAREFULLY use a hair dryer to thaw out all of the frost on the evaporator coils. If you do this and re-assemble it, it should work fine for a week or so at least until you get a repair man to look at it. And of course if you would like more help in trying to repair it yourself, please feel free to ask.

We have a 1999 Whirlpool side by side refrigerator and Freezer. Model number ED25EQXFW02. Last night the Refrigerator and Freezer stopped cooling and freezing. After taking everything out of the freezer,...


Usually when the freezer is still giving cold but the frig is not receiving cold you have an ice build-up on the cold (evaporator) coil that is hidden behind the rear panel of the freezer compartment. If you push on this panel, you usually will hear a cruntch sound (this tells you there is ice/frost on the coil). There are 3 components that affect this problem: defrost timer, defrost stat, defrost heat coil. In other words, something is not working to remove the frost from the coil and it is building-up day after day (takes about 5-7 days to become full (blocked). When this happens, no air can move over the coil to take the cold away and blow it throughout the frig or freezer compartments.
To access the defrost coil or stat, you have to ren move the back panel (in the freezer) and remove all the ice with a hair dryer only or let the door open all day and allow it to melt. DO NOT PUSH OR PRY OR CHOP WITH ANY TOOL OR YOU WILL BE GARRANTEED TO PUNCTURE A HOLE IN THE COIL AND YOU ARE REALLY SCREWED. The time is either: under the front of the whole refrigerator, or in the frig compartment (towards the back or attached to the ceiling of frig compartment). If you have some experience with electrical parts, you can test to see which part is at fault. Good Luck. Macgivor

Refrigerator/Freezer not getting cold


Is the fan on the condenser coils spinning? (back side of unit behind the bottom access panel.)

If it is not, the heat extracted from the fresh food/freezer compartments is not being sufficiently dissipated.

As a short-term fix, you can aim a box fan (a regular ol' room/window fan) at the condenser coils.

Cooling problems


Did you make sure the evaporator fan is working? I would check that and also make sure the evaporator is not all iced up. If it is iced you have a defrost problem and not with the sealed system. so check that out and get back if you can. Thanks
