Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

The refrigerator side is cool, but not cold. The freezer side is frozen, but melting. The ice in the ice maker melted, but created one big ice cycle that has not melted. The fan underneath is running, the R134 container is warm/hot. Can anybody help? Thanks, Bob.


Answers :

I just ran into this problem this year. Is it very warm underneath your fridge? If you remove the cover in the back, you may find that you compressor is so hot you can't touch it. You can first try blowing out your cooling fins in the back of your fridge. A fan is connected to it and it should be next to the compressor. For my case that did not work. I then replaced the fan for the cooling fins and now my fridge works fine.

I've got a six year old Kenmore side by side 106.56534400 refrigerator. Everything in the freezer melted. Refrigerator compartment is warm. Freezer fan and condenser fan underneath are both running. Condenser coils are fairly clean, brushed and vacuumed. Turned off refrigerator overnight. Restarted. Cooled and made ice for about 6 hours, before starting to melt and get warm again. Evaporator coils are clear with no ice or frost buildup. What seems to be the problem?

I have a GE side-by-side TFX24JW fridge. The bottom half of both (fridge and freezer) maintain proper temperatures. The top half of both are warmer than the bottom halves, though still cool (ie, the freezer does not freeze but food is still cool, the fridge is cooler than room temp but not cool enough to keep food from spoiling). No ice build-up anywhere, though the fan runs constantly. I've vacuumed underneath the front and in the back (the coils are covered by the back of the fridge but th

Kenmore Coldspot 50269992 Found freezer door ajar 24 hours ago. Ice was melting, food was thawing. Took out contents, cleaned up water. During night could hear a slight click sound periodically. This AM refrigerator side not as cold now, freezer side not evene cold. Used vacuum cleaned coils underneath. Checked backside, visually. I can see a fan (approx 5 inches) is running. I see a canister shape with copper tubing. This is the extent of my knowledge about this appliance. What should I do?


The click sound may be the compressor starter/overload relay trying to start the compressor(canister shape). It the compressor don't run it won't cool any. The starter could be bad and just need replacing. If the relay is burnt, bulging, or rattles w ... Kenmore Refrigerators

Fan oscillation I have a Hotpoint HSM25GFRA SA side-by-side. The recirc fan in the freezer starts to oscilate after it has been running several minutes. Temp in both freezer and fridge seem normal. The unit is about 4 years old. Recently I had to defrost the freezer due to icemaker overflowing and ice building up near the fan. The ice did not stop the fan, but started to "buzz" as the ice contacted the fan blades. I don't remember this oscillation before. Is the fan damaged? Pete


Probably damaged the fan blade. If plastic, it could be missing a blade or maybe cracked. If metal, probably bent. I would ttry to get an eyeball on it while it''s running to see just what's up. Fan motors are usually pretty durable and last quite ... Hotpoint HSM25GFRSA

Model# 596.58642891 freezer side thawed first and now the fridge side is warm. The fan is running constant and adjusting the temp controls has no effect. The doors are sealing and the coils and fan are clean. It's been 4 days and when I removed the back panel the compressor was very warm to the touch. The ice maker works but its not cold enough to make ice and the food in the fridge side has spoiled.


I humbly disagree with Sea Breeze. We know the thermostat (cold control) is working because the fans are running and the compressor is hot to the touch. So we're getting power to the compressor. Now, only TWO things will keep the compressor from firi ... Kenmore Refrigerators

I have a side by side that I puchased just about two years ago. The unit serial # is MT225306. My problem there seems to be a low voltage source to the freezer fan.

If i hit the Ice cube dispensore or anthing on the door the fan quets and will osolate and then with a slight push I can get it going again.

I have a GE Profile, TFX24PR side by side, with ice maker, etc. Several times a day, we notice a ticking sound form the unit, which we thought was something rattling in one of the doors, till we took everything out. This problem comes and goes and is a slow tick. The unit is cooling fine and the fans seem to running fine. But, We don't hear the sound unless a fan is running. The hard part is that it comes and goes but is there everyday, several times a day. Is there a 3'rd fan I don't know about

I have a GE side-by-side with ice and water through the door. The ice bin defrosts from time to time causing the ice to re-freeze in a clump once the temperature gets back to normal in the freezer. I have already had the water inlet, the motherboard, the freezer fan and the solenoid for the ice chute replaced. The problem persists. I can see when it's happening because condensation forms on the underneath side of the ice bin.

We have a Whirlpool Gold side-by-side refrigerator. The freezer must have started defrosting today. Everything inside is soaked, the ice maker quit producing ice and the ice was melting. The blower fan is running continuously but not blowing any cold air. We did have the freezer packed pretty full but not much more than usual. It seems like the refrigerator is now starting to warm up. We have turned off the freezer side to see if it makes any difference. What else should we do?

My Maytag side-by-side refrig is acting weird. The freezer side is freezing alright and the refrig side isn't. Now, I took apart the inside covers on the freezer side and the condenser was all iced up. The fan above it was running fine. I shut everything down to its lowest setting, took a hair dryer and proceeded to rid the condenser of all the ice. I noticed it has what appears to be a heating element under the condenser. I've since returned all setting to their previous setting and I await th

I have an Amana 26 cu.ft. side by side approx. 3 years old. The refridgerator side was warm so I cleaned the coils and it began to cool down. The compressor began to function and I thought all was well. About three weeks later both freezer and refridg became warm. I removed the food in freezer, took panel off and found a block of ice, everything was frozen. The fan was the only thing running. The compressor had not run for days.
