Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

My fridge and freezer stopped working today, I turned both to coldest setting freezer is working now but fridge is not. What could the problem be?


Answers :

Greetings,
\012 usually, this means a defrost problem or maybe an evaporator fan not turning. The first thing I would do. Is check to see if the freezer fan is running. if not, the defrost thermostat is most likely defective...(amana seem to all have this problem) the next thing is the freezer coil..The coil may be frosted over to much and air can't circulate thru it..if so, again with this the fan may not be running and the defrost thermostat needs replacing......if fan is running and coil is frosted over...you need to advance this into a defrost and depending on the year...It may have either a manual timer you can advance or an electrical defrost board.....let me know if you need more help, Bruce Denton

The fridge alarm will not stop. The fridge compartment is not cold and the freezer is just freezing. Since the problem started, have the fridge turned off for 3 days. Defrosted the freezer, turned it back on and was working fine for 2 days. The alarm is now going off again. What type of major problem could be causing this? Is it time for a new fridge?

My 5 year old GE GSH22JSRSS Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator recently stopped cooling. I noticed a build up of frost on the freezer, so unplugged the fridge and let the ice melt away.

Samsung RL33SB problem! fridge compartment doesnt cool down. The freezer is cool and acts like normal, but the fridge is warm. I opened the lid in the freezer, and could see that the fan is working properly, and the "flap" in the channel to the left of the fan turns freely when i put the power on. This flap turns a few times before it stops in open position. Why is the fridge not cold?

Stopped cooling, freezer was at 25. Removed all contents and moved to neighbors. Ciculation fan could be heard. Do not know if compressor was working. Then the fridge began cooling again and got to -2. Refilled freezer. Pulled fridge out, took off bottom panel and vacuumed out everything I could reach. Reloaded freezer and it remained at 0 for four days then stopped cooling again. Have called for service, but won't be available for 3 days. Anything I can do in the meantime.
