Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

My freezer is working, but my refrigerator is not...I just replaced the gasket on the refrigerator...what should I check? Is it possible that the faulty gasket caused some icing of the air flow system from the freezer..and if so...how can I fix it?


Answers :

Sorry to hear about your problem. Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice on it. If not. you have other issues
Here is a list of some things that can go wrong.
1. Defective heat coil
2. Defective defrost timer
3. Defective defrost sensor
You should call a service company to resolve your issue.

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. Any Thoughts?


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 ... Amana 22.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with FrontFill Ice and Water

My whirlpool ed27dqx refridgerator quit making ice immediately after I had my reverse osmosis drinking water system upgraded. I replaced the ice maker unit and the dual water valve. I have always had water at the drinking water at the front of fridge, but no water flows into the ice tray. Did I get a bad valve, is there air in the line, do I have an electrical problem, or what? Do both solenoids on the valve have the same voltage so I can switch power between solenoids?


The pressure from a reverse osmosis system is not sufficient to operate the ice maker water valve. A water valve requires a minimum of 20 pounds of pressure without a refrigerator water filter, and 35 pounds of pounds of pressure with a refrigerator ... Refrigerators

I've just replaced the water filter and the flow rate on the water dispenser is as slow as it was before. I ran the dispenser to remove the air from the system so I know that is not the problem. The flow is also affecting the ice maker. The cubes are small and/or hollow. How do I improve my water flow?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Most water flow problems that are common to both the ice maker and water dispenser are either a supply volume or filter problem. Since you already have replaced the filter that points ... Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator

I have a Kenmore side by side refrigerator model 10652582201 seven years old. The bottom part of the freezer is working properly but there's no ice on the top part and no cold air in the refrigerator side. I guess it's a problem in the air flow system because I can't hear the usual fan sound. Please give me some guidance to find the part to replace. I'm in Brazil and there's no Kenmore service here.

Ice maker quit after my husband over filled the top shelf and blocked the air flow for the freezer. The freezer started to defrost itself and water was on the floor in front of the freezer. He unblocked the top shelf and the freezer works ok, but no water seems to be emptying into the ice maker now. Is there a fix for this without calling in a repair man?


Yes, If you will try a couple things. Fill ice maker with water and let freeze. Tell me if it will drop the ice when frozen, Let me know that and your model number. I am doing this to decide which one is the problem. The ice maker or the water contro ... Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System

I have a Jenn Air JSD2789DES Refrigerator. It is about a 2000 model. The center mullion/bar is very hot. I checked the fan that cools the coils and blows air across the compressor and it works fine. I vacuumed everyting although it didn;t look bad. The compressor is also really hot. The fins that cool the freezer inside the unit are not iced up. The defrost heating element was replaced several years ago. Any suggestions on what could be causing this excessive heat or how to fix it?

Jenn Air side-by-side refrig-freezer. When the water is hooked up it leaks substantially from the Ice Maker. I'm attempting to remove the module (from which the water flows) and it's unclear just how to detach the module. What is the best approach to fixing this unit?


Make sure the fill cup does not have any ice in it. The little cup that the tube fills when it calls for water. Besides that I would recommend changing the icemaker module on the front of the icemaker. It is held on with 3 screws. ... Refrigerators

Have a KitchenAid Superba side by side with ice maker. (Don't know year or model number, came with the house we bought two years ago.) We took off the back panel to vaccuum coils and wipe out drip pan (there was a terrible smell). Smell is all gone, but now entire unit will not cool. Everything seems to be running: fan blowing (room temp air). What might we have done in cleaning to cause this? And what can we do to fix it? Thank you.

The center area of my Kenmore 59282990 is very hot. The ice maker is working fine. I unplugged the unit for 3 minutes and plugged it back in and the unit cooled off in the middle then about 20 minutes later it was very hot again. I could feel some heat coming out of the bottom rear of the unit but the air pressure wasn't very strong. Otherwise, the unit works fine. I'm concerned about this getting so hot that it could cause a fire. Is this something I can fix? Thanks.
