Sharp SJ-42-WH self-defrosting fridge. Freezer works fine, but fridge doesn't cool down - no airflow to fridge.
1. Damper working perfectly and not jambed in closed position.
2. Fan working perfectly
3. Thermostat in freezer fine
4. Evaporator fine - no ice build up, so auto-defrost seems to be working.

Ice will not dispense (cubed or crushed). This seems to be an intermittent problem but more not than working. Motor does not seem to be jammed or over loaded. I cannot determine the voltage from the electronic buttons to determine if it is the switch or control panel. Can you direct me to find a service manual and schematic for this unit?

I have a model RB17C-3A 16.6 cu. Ft refrigerator, made in 1985. The unit does not shut off, and the freezer gets cold, but the box cools to only about 15 degrees C. I read that the problem might be the thermostat, but I cannot find a way to access the thermostat to check it. The entire interior seems to be encased in molded plastic with no obvious way to dis-assemble. So, my question is, how do I take the plastic casing out so I can observe the control circuitry and evaporator coils?

Hello,rn Hello, I have an Amana BB20VPSE/P1321302W E fridge with the freezer on the bottom. The freezer still works but the fridge is not staying cool. I took off the cover in the freezer and the evaporator fan was not coming on. I replaced it and it still does not come on. Any suggestions on what to check next.

My fridge compressor stopped working. After checking the main control board I found a burnt transformer.I replaced it with a new board. It still did not work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Try to check your compressor resistance using ommeter or connect one test prod to terminal of compressor and one test prod to the body of your ref, if the pointer move or you read resistance it means your compressor burn out need replacement. or try ...

The clicking could be the start relay.If the start relay is bad, the compressor will not start and you will hear a clicking noise in 2-5 minute intervals. The clicking noise is the overload cutting the compressor off when it overheats from t ...

Ice maker cannot eject cubes. I took off the front cover and found several contact points for checking the motor, water valve, thermostat, mold heater. There is also a line voltage and neutral contact. Are these contacts live only during certain parts of the cycle? I suspect the heater isnt working More Ice maker cannot eject cubes.

Morning, I have a RM 2852 Dometic camper refrigerator that suddenly stopped working. We checked fuses, changed the heater but on 12V, plugged in, or LP it will not cool.

I have a Kenmore model# 253.73754300. The problem I'm having is the freezer works but when it goes into the heater/defrost mode, it won't shut off the heater . The freezer compartment will get completely warm nearly hot, defrost everything and then after a while the cooling system will restart to freeze again.

I 4-year old Frigidaire upright freezer. It has always been in the garage and has worked fine. I'm in TN, and it is quite hot, but again, it has worked great for years. But in the last few days--I think--the internal temp will not get below 25. That is based on two new thermometers. I have set it to full cold. Nothing unusual has happened lately, and there were no hot foods added or anything like that. I also see some water puddling on the floor. I cannot find anything pertinent in the o

Hi I am wondering if the PCB is gone as the fan stopped working causing an increase in temperature in the freezer. There was ice on the tubes at the top which I let melt. On running the unit the motor starts after a few mins but the pipes do not get very cold. The fridge seems to be working. I have checked the fan and wiring to the PCB both seem ok. I I have not checked the thermistors but assume they are OK. I don't want to go to the expense of a new board and find there is another problem. Is

I think i have a grounding problem with my Kitchenaid side-by-side fridge. I feel a shock when i touch the freezer door if i'm not wearing any shoes. Also i just checked the back of the unit and i get a shock from touching the back even with shoes on! I've checked the wall receptacle and that's working fine, so it's definitely something in the fridge. Can someone suggest possible causes or where i hould check to find the cause? Thanks, Andre Simons
I would buy a tester and check the wall receptacle to make sure the ground is right, they are like 5 dollars.Then yes you have a loose ground somewhere check the compressor first . ...

We have an older Kelvinator Deluxe refrigerator purchased in 1974. The freezer part works. The bottom barely cools regardless of the temperature setting. It has survived three hurricanes Rita, Gustav, and Ike, and we have no idea where the manual is. Due to sitting 37 days with the power off after Rita, much scrubbing with bleach was required, and we can find no identifying numbers. We had the same problem about 20 years ago, and the thermostat was replaced. This part was difficult to find

I have a GE Profile PSS26MSWASS 26.6 cu. ft. side by side with ice dispenser. The control panel on the front by the ice and water dispenser is out. Could the problem be with a power supply or the control panel? How can I determine what the cause is? The ice maker makes ice, but does not dispense. The water dispenser does not work. The freezer and refrigerator temps are fine, but cannot be adjusted because the control panel is not working.
