\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012The inside of the freezer
\015\012\015\012Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer, as follows:
- If the freezer is on top, the fan is on the back wall, near the top or bottom, in the center of the freezer.
- If the freezer is on the bottom, the fan is on the back wall, near the top of the freezer.
- If the freezer is on the left, the fan is on the back wall, halfway up or near the top.
Over time, the fan may become noisy--usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.
To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause. You can't lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it.
\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012The outside back of the refrigerator
\015\012\015\012There are three components on the outside back of the refrigerator that may become noisy: the compressor, the condenser fan motor (if self-defrosting), or the defrost timer (if self-defrosting).
- The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. You can see it on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. It is usually black and has black or copper-colored tubes and various colored wires attached to it. If the compressor is the device making noise, there is probably no repair that will reduce the noise. You will have to replace it--which can be quite costly.
- If the condenser fan is making noise, there may be a build-up of lint or other debris on the fan blade. The fan is located near the back of the machine, sometimes behind a thin panel. To clean it, first unplug the refrigerator, remove the thin panel, and use a soft bristle brush to clean it. If there is no lint build-up or debris on the blade, you will have to replace the motor.
- The defrost timer is often located at the bottom of the refrigerator, near the front and behind the kick plate. Occasionally the electric motor inside the timer may become noisy. The timer must be replaced to solve this problem.
\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012The bottom of the refrigerator
\015\012\015\012Noises detected at the bottom of the refrigerator almost always originate from the back of the refrigerator. However, sometimes the drain pan under the refrigerator will rattle. You may need to tape the pan in place to stop a rattle. Also see the “Outside back of the refrigerator.”

Amana bb20v1ps Compressor and both fans are running on my bottom freezer amana. Fridge is warm, and air flow is weak from the damper. When I open the freezer door air flow increases in the refrigerator. I already opened up the back of the freezer, and removed two large blocks of ice on either side of the evaporator coil do you think I have a bad damper

My LG LFX23961st bottom freezer refrigerator is not cooling properly. The freezer is working but there is not air flow into the refrigerator. Air will only flow into the the top when the bottom freezer drawer is open. I have tested this by holding the door switch plungers in while a french door is open. Air will not flow into to the top until I pull the freezer drawer out, and it does so whether the freezer drawer switch is depressed or not. It is as if the freezer drawer seal is causing a v

Greetings, actually my model # is GD5SHAXNS00 Problem is: A spring fell out of the ice dispenser flap area, and of course the flap which is normally spring loaded no longer is. And now the cold air is getting out, or the warm air is getting in, causing ice build up on the inside,and ice cubes to freeze together. The spring appears to be fine, looks like it should ride with a pin through it horizontally to keep the flap closed when ice is not flowing. No pin, nor any signs of one. Looks like

Amana SCD22JL Replacing the Defrost Thermostat fixed the fan problem. However I am getting very little air flow into the refrigerator side.
The Defrost is working, the evaporator fan is running, the evaporator coils are not iced up, and the damper that controls the air flow on the refrigerator side is fully open.
It sounds as though you have a refigeration problem if there is no cold on the coil, however you hav sad that you have changed the sensor which would bring in the fan when cold enough. As far as airflow I have been doing this a while on American cabi ...

I CLEANED THE INSIDE OF MY REFRIGERATOR TODAY AND NOW IT WONT COOL. THE FREEZER WORKS FINE. I HAD IT OPEN QUITE SOME TIME. THERE IS AIR FLOW INSIDE THE FREEZER BUT NONE IN THE REFRIGERATOR . DID IT FREEZE BLOCKING THE AIR FLOW?
Did you leave the freezer running while you cleaned the fridge? Warm air from the outside latches onto the cold frosty areas and has stopped the fan or auger. Suggest you switch off unit and defrost completely. Then retry. ...

Fridge is on top and freezer is on bottom. Fridge is not cooling and freezer is not froze up and the fan is working. The air vents are not plugged and the air is not being returner to the lower cabin. When the freezer door is open just a bit the air blows out the inside back of the fridge. But when you close the freezer the air flow stops. So the damper has been checked and I can't seem to find the problem. And again there is no ice bilt up in any area as I have had to take the inide back panel

My GE refrigerator side by side model #GSS25JFPDWW is freezing the items in the fresh food section. The repairman said that there is a flap behind the damper cover that is not working and that I needed to order a new flap. The flap adjusts the air that is flowing from the freezer to the fridge. I looked on line but do not see a flap as a part -only the damper cover. What part should I buy to repair the fridge?

3 year old VUAR141 cools but only gets down to 16C at coldest setting(spec is 4 to 14 C)Compressor and cooling fan only run for approx 3 minutes then shut off for 20 minutes or more before restarting. Evaporator plate is below 0 C when compressor is running. Good air flow over condenser. Seems like thermostat is out of range. Is it most likely to be: Potentiometer, Thermister, or control box? Does control box limit compressor run time, if so what is limit run time?
Those symptoms you describe indicate a compressor that is "short cycling", if it is indeed starting and running for those 3 minutes. Is the evaporator cold for those three minutes as well? Many times people think its running, then shutting off, when ...

Whenever fridge door is shut hard/ quickly it causes the freezer door to pop open a little...and meltdown the frozen stuff. The fridge door has dropped a bit but I don't think that is it.

My refrigarator is not getting cold on the fresh food side. The freezer works fine so the compressor is good. Is there a fan for the FF side and if so where is it? There is a trap door at the top which is open. It seems there shoulod be a fan on the FF side to either blow cold air or create a suction to draw the cold air from the freezer side. I changed the thermostat but that didn't fix it. Can you help please? Thanks, Mike
