Frig hot but freezer still freezes but fan won't turn on


Answers :

The fan in the freezer definitely needs to run. It's behind the rear cover inside the freezer. Take the cover off and make sure it's not blocked by ice and that the coils are not iced up blocking air flow. Check evaporator fan here.

My GE Profile side by side is not cooling or freezing (refrigerator and freezer). I took the back lower cover off and cleaned, etc. The fan still runs, the compresser (metal thing next to fan) is not hot. I'm guessing the compresser isn't working but would like to save a service call if there's a way to know for sure. The temperature has now gone all the way to the highest and turned off on both sides. When I turn on to cool you hear a slight change in sound but then nothing.

Wont keep anything cold obviously, fan is still running fine. Any help would be great. thanks

I have an Amana side by side frig and the freezer is not keeping ice cream cold. The refrigerator side seems fine. The freezer side is set to 7 but it no longer clicks like it used to when you turn the dial to lower numbers. It was working fine and the freezer kept things very cold and then all of a sudden things started to melt. However, some things in the freezer still freeze, while other things like ice cream do not. Any possible solutions? The frig is about 8-9 years old. Thanks, Davi

I have a Kenmore Frig Model 596.50392000 / MFG No P50392000WO / SN 0006287370 The Frig will run for 2 days and work fine. Then it will start to warm up (Frig and Freezer), and everything starts to melt, will get all the way to 70 degres in the frig - while you can hear it still running. Turn it off for a day or so, turn it back on - and you can repeat the cycle. I did previously pull it out clean it all, fan and coils the best I could with no difference.

My refrigerator is running but the fresh food part doesn't get cold. The freezer still freezes. I did turn it off and let the frost melt, but the evaporator fan doesn't turn on. I think I narrowed it down to the evaporator fan or the sensor that trigger the fan. Not sure. I don't know how to tell what the problem is for sure. Please help. Thanks.

Maytag rsw24a I have replaced the thermostat, heating element, and timer. It was working great, but then after two weeks we noticed that the center line between the fridge and freezer on the side by side was burning hot, but the refrigerator and freezer still seem to be working. I pulled it out and the condenser fan blade was not turning. I spun it with my finger and it is now turning. After about an hour of it running, the center console is now only very warm, not burning. It was working prior


Sounds like your humidity switch is "on", which is what warms the center post. Turn it off and see if the heat problem goes away, and if you get a buildup of moisture on the center post. If so, turn it back on. ... Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System

On our Kenmore Coldspot Model 71182100, water is leaking from freezer compartment into the refrigerator compartment and it turns to ice on the top shelf. If you put anything close to the back vent of the frig it will freeze up. I also notice ice crystals on all the food in the freezer compartment. The fan turns on more than usual and it makes a strange whining noise when running.

I have a Kenmore side by side refrigerator Model C646-85588. The freezer is cold but the fridge is warm. Found that the air was not blowing sufficiently into the frig section even when the damper was fully open.Checked the evap coil and it was fully defrosted. So I changed the evap fan and still the same thing. I noticed this morning that the fan speed varied and turned faster and could feel some air blowing in the frig section but after some time the speed lowered. What could be the cause?

I have hss25gfp side by side the freezer stopped freezing and it very hot on the middle divider. I took off the bottom on the back and it was caked with a bunch of lint. I cleaned it off. But noticed the fan, I guess on the coils isn't turning on. Not sure if that takes time to turn on. But could it be that fan is no longer working?


If the compressor is running the condenser fan should be too. If the fan does not run the compressor will overheat and stop. If you cool the underside with a small box fan and the chill returns to the box, replace the condenser fan. ... Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator

Have a GE Profile PFS22MIBBB. Just replaced condenser fan motor, and main board. The control board now is working, but the fan still has not turned on after 2 hours. Is this normal, or is there something else. Condenser and coils seem pretty hot. Original problem was fridge and freezer not cooling. Placing a desk fan behind unit aimed at coils did trick, but I need my fan back.


You will need to unplug the fan and test the voltage coming from the board. You should have 12 to 13 volts DC. Unless you place a fan on condenser that blows air to keep it cool until we locate the problem the compressor can be damaged from over heat ...

We have a Kenmore freezer on bottom/fridge on top model. Came home yesterday to find the freezer items thawed. The fridge was cool but not cold. We jacked up both dials, and while some sort of fan is running and blowing out air in the freezer, the air doesn't feel very cold. The compressor on the back (if we are looking at the right thing) feels hot. For a while, I was having issues with food freezing in the back of the fridge, but I turned it down a notch, and that seemed to solve that problem.
