Can you see the coil in the freezer? It may be located behind a panel accessible from inside the freezer. Even though the air duct is clear if the self defrost is not thawing the coil daily it will turn into a block of ice and stop the air flow from the small fan. The other option would be the small fan motor stopped working. Either way its an easy fix in most cases and parts for either job should be under $50.

I have a 6 yr old Whirlpool side-by-side fridge and we've had the same problem over and over. No one seems to know what is wrong. 1st there would be water just leaking from the back of the freezer and eventually out to the floor. The drain would plug-up with ice. We also have a lot of frost build-up in the middle vent in the refrigerator side. When i open the freezer door i can feel cool air coming in the top vent to the fridge side but when i close it...nothing. it takes me 30 min to an hour to

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

The refrigerator quit getting cold a couple days ago, the cold air quit coming from the freezer side to the refrigerator. Although the freezer is cool, things like the ice cream are thawing. We took the cover off the coils to find that they had a lot of ice build up, we turned the freezer & fridge off for ice to melt. The fridge & freezer worked again for 3 days, last night the fridge quit getting cold again, same thing, we discovered that the coils are iced over, what can be causing this. W

Model 501-65012 Refrigerator section is not cooling but lights and temp.panal are still lit. Freezer section is working. The fan at the back of the fridge is working. A guy came twice to check it out and finally claimed that he couldn't fix the problem. He tried to melt the ice build up between the freezer and the fridge that was blocking the vents. One vent now allows cool air to pass from the freezer to the fridge, but the other remains blocked. The temp. in the fridge is 49 degrees. We tu
Fridge not cooling. Air baffle problem, I previously would open the baffle and then it would cool the fridge. I would have to re-open the baffle every hour. Now, I have the baffle propped open with a chopstick, but no air is coming through, even though the Freezer fan is blowing. Its not an obstruction, just seems like the blowing air isn't strong enough to get through to the fridge.
My LG GR-F218NI comes up with the message Er FF, I gather this means the freezer fan is not working. I can get it going again tempoararily by turning the fridge off and opening the (empty) freezer drawer for a while. The fridge then cools normally for 3-4 hours. The weather is very humid and this suggests to me that the freezer fan is getting iced up.
Does anyone know how to get at the freezer fan to check if it has ice around it or jamming the blades.
Alternatively the freezer fan is just bu

KitchenAid side by side refrigerator, KSSP48QKS, not cooling on the fridge side, is staying @ 58degrees. Of course the over temp alarm is going off every hour. Freezer & ice maker are working fine. There seems to be no air coming through the side top vent from freezer into fridge. I found a tech sheet on the Whirlpool website that says in the trouble shooting area: "Refrigerator compartment too warm".......

I have a smeg cr330 e fridge freezer.
My problem is that the fridge appears to run at 9-10 degrees despite turning the thermostat all the way to the max (5)
At the top in the refigerator there is a thermostat with a long metal wire attached to the back wall. I know that the fridge is cooling because there is always significant ice build up on the back wall. This ice sometimes encases the wire coming from the thermostat. The ice tracks down to the bottom, and even when I defrost it, it event

We have had a repairman come in 2 times now and the problem still seems unresolved. The freezer wan't defrosting so the fridge was not cold enough(mid 50s temperature on a laser thermometer. First visit the connection between the freezer and the fridge was blocked with ice (he claimed we must have left the door open). This last visit the whole back of the freezer was frozen over. This time he replaced the defrost board. The fridge is not cooling down.
Check for frost on the lower back wall of the freezer again. You may have either a defective defrost terminating thermostat (located in freezer at top of evaporator coils behind lower back panel of freezer) this should read closed when testing ...

Mini Danby Fridge Won't cool but compresser is running very HOT!(Model DCR412BLS) the fridge has just recently been moved into a warmer environment without air conditioning. As well, it had accumulated quite a bit of built up ice which has been removed (because i unplugged the fridge to let it drain). I thought that may solve the problem, however now it is getting cold in the freezer compartment without any circulation into the fridge. It hsa been suggested that it is a gas leak. As well, I have

I've had numerous problems with my bosch frost free fridge freezer - the frost free part didnt function properly however bosch have now been out to fix that. I then had them out more recently as there was ice building up at the bottom of the freezer however was told this was just because of a blocked tube at the back. ive noticed now that inside the freezer from the vent bit at the top there is warm air coming from it - whats wrong with it now???!
The freezer has stopped cooling...meaning the fridge has stopped too. The fan continues to run, but blows warm air. Twice before the fan had frozen and stopped blowing the cold up to the fridge...we had that part replace each time. now it seems to be a different problem. Had noticed in the week before failure that the icemaker had started to leak causing a block to form in the ice tray. Any suggestions? It is a french door stainless steel deep fridge purchase from sears about 5 years ago.

LG GR431SCA fridge will not cool properly and top half of freezer and ice maker section will not freeze.
The bottom half of the freezer (below the shelf) freezes well, but above the shelf and the ice cube making section will not freeze food at all. The fridge does not cool properly, it is coolish, but far from normal. I noticed that the vent in the fridge (that leads from the freezer) does not blow out any cold air when I have the fridge door open, yet when I open the freezer door at the same
