Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

I just tried to run a self diagnostic test on my Samsung refrigerator by holding the Power Cool and Power Freeze buttons down for several seconds.

I have a 3 year old Amana refrigerator Model ABD2533DE bottom freezer refrigerator. The freezer section is freezing & the refrigerator section is not cool there is also ice building up back panel (freezer section). As per the troubleshooting guide, I programmed it to a "forced defrost cycle". This did in fact fix the problem but only for about 2 weeks. We are now back to the same problem. Do I still need to check the defrost thermostat for continuity or is the electronic control board bad.

I have a GE Model PSC23MG Refrigerator. The freezer section does not get cold enough. Starting several months ago the refrigerator was noiser than normal. I appeared that the noise was coming from the evaporator fan in the freezer section. The excessive noise stopped a month or so ago but it sounds like the evoporator fan is still running. The temperature in the freezer is barely cold enough to freeze items in the freezer. This also has caused problems with the ice maker because the ice pa

I want to know if you can de-ice the freezer without turning the refrigerator section off. There's ice buildup in the freezer, obstructing the door. I want to de-ice it but don't want to turn off the fridge section and ruin the refrigerated food. I've turned the freezer to it's weakest freeze setting & opened the door wide. But the freeze element is keeping it too cold for the ice to melt. There's only one power chord for both sides of the fridge.

Our refrigerator is not cooling at all. The freezer is working fine, but no cool air is getting to the refrigerator section. A couple of weeks ago, this problem happened after the freezer had started icing up.

Now the refrigerator is back up to room temperature, even though the freezer is operating normally. Any ideas about what needs to be

Neither the refrigerator nor freezer cooled at the temp I selected, but the refrigerator is stuck at 53 degrees.

Cold air is not circulating to the fridge section in my side-side ARS9167AW amana. Also lower freezer section is very cold.

I am almost certain its the same exact problem and I need to replace this fan again. Can someone tell me where this fan is located (that pushes air to the fridge from the freezer)and what type of fan it is and/or the part number. Thanks, --E

Hi, I have a Kenmore top freezer refrigerator model number 363.79567990. The freezer stopped working and I found out that I had to press the "Reset" button on the outlet while it was unplugged for the outlet to properly reset and work. However, once the fridge was plugged in, the power "surged" I guess and the outlet had to be reset again. Tried other outlets, same problem. I was able to get the fridge to power on, but NOT cool in either fridge or freezer, by setting the "Power Miser" to OFF. If
