Your defrost timer is most likely failed. It is in THAW mode continuously - if the compressor never kicks in. Look to getting it replaced.... without a model number - this is as much help as I can provide. Please accept this answer to remove it from the work queue, and re-post with a model number for more precise repair information. Thanks for using FixYa!!

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

My GE side by side fridge model GSH22JFTA BB stopped making ice a few months ago. Water is fine. Haven't had a chance to get it fixed, but now both freezer and fridge side do not get cold even on highest setting. This started about a week ago. Doesn't seem like the fan is blowing any air around either. There is some frost on the back of the freezer wall, but it is not cold enough to freeze any food. Bottom drawer of fridge is the only really cold area. It's only 2 years old - is this an ex

I have a 22 yr old top freezer fridge. I took it to my cabin last year when I bought a new one for the house. However, it does not work-get cold at all. We don't leave the electricity on when we are not at the cabin. Could this be the problem? When we get to the cabin we plug it in. But the 2 days we are in the cabin it will not get cold. Is it worth fixing it, or it too old. We do have another older fridge that the moment we turn the electricity in the cabin we turn the fridge on, it takes abou

My samsung rs2630sh fridge is iceing up, and not getting cold. I replaced the circut card a few months ago for the same problem, which worked, and the problem is back. It is my understanding that the defrost clock is on that board. I manually defrosted the fridge, heard ice falling off the coils, and the fridge is getting cold again.Reminds me of the old fridges back in the 50s and 60s.Any advise will be appreciated.J.M

Hello Expert, I have this close to 20 year old Frigidaire Fridge/Freezer with the freezer department on top and fridge on the bottom. The problem is that the fridge department is not getting cooled down even if I turn the fridge's thermostat full to 'cold'. However the fan is working fine as I shut the door, but no air to the fridge. If i disconnect the fridge for about 1 hour, and reconnect to power there is cold air to the fridge, but soon will begin to not blow cold air into the fridge depar

Maytag Admiral Top-Freezer Refrigerator
The fridge in my Miele KFN8662SD fridge/freezer is not getting cold.
The temperature display is working. If I press the "boost" button the fridge gets cold and continues to be cold for the ~2 hours the "boost" lasts. The Freezer is working OK. My diagnosis is that the cooling system is working and its a problem with the controls. The temperature probe is working because the temp dislay is correct ( Unless there is a separate sensor for the temp display). Therefore there must be a problem with t

I installed a new seal on my Magic Chef refridgerator. I soaked it in warm water, and hit the creases in it with a heat gun on the low setting. It still has gaps, and is not completely sealing. The motor on the fridge has been running nonstop for days now, and I am worried the motor will give out. Any suggs? This is a CTB1502ARW model-standard fridge on bottom, freezer on top. The freezer is very cold, but cant get the fridge part to get cold. I THINK the seal is the problem. Could

My landlord just gave me this fridge and it appears that one thermostate controls freezer and fridge. I am not sure what temperature to set it at as the freezer is getting cold but the fridge is not real cold. Also, it states you should defrost it every 6 months but I don't know how you could do this without the fridge staying cold. Can someone please help me.

It no longer gets cold inside...however, the back of the fridge does get cold - the tank (that I assume holds the Freon) is still cold to the touch.
