Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

My 2005 FRIGIDAIRE PLHS69EESS2 side by side will not freeze. The fridge is fine. The freezer is staying at 30 degrees. The ice maker has not made ice in a few weeks. The freezer began loosing its cool about 3 days ago. The fan next to the coils on the back side is not turning and the condenser seems overly warm. I have cleaned the underside and am not sure what else I should do. Any advise would be helpfull.

Hello,

Check the thermostat for temperature setting. Make sure your freezer is \015\012not too stuffed and that there is enough space for air flow. Check for \015\012the restriction of air flow in the vents. Clean the coils of the \015\012condenser if found clogged. Also look out for clogged drain tube and if \015\012there is a leakage of the refrigerant. Test various components such as \015\012temperature control knob, evaporator fan, defrost timer and the door \015\012switch.

One of the most common freezer problems is the malfunction of the \015\012condenser coil. This generally arises when the coil is excessively \015\012dirty. It makes the freezer cool improperly. Cleaning the condenser coil\015\012 with a brush or cloth can be an effective solution to this problem. \015\012Make sure to unplug the freezer before you start any cleaning.
\015\012
Also, make sure that the evaporator coil and fan are working properly. Check \015\012for any damage or blocking to the blades o the fan or the coil. To check\015\012 if the connectors are damaged, carefully remove all the screws of the \015\012evaporator fan and with a needle nose pliers, remove the wires from the \015\012connectors. See if the connectors are corroded or damaged and get them \015\012replaced if needed. Connect the wires and the blades of the fan back \015\012using the freezer manual.

Take care.

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?

My frigidaire side by side started making noises a couple days ago. Sound coming from ice maker location (maybe behind it?). It stopped making ice too. The next day lots of ice was made and then the noise went away but both the freezer and fridge started warming up and the ice was melting. By the next morning, both sides were working again and the noise was back. Ice maker filled with ice and kept making ice so I turned it off. Now both sides are warming yet again, ice melting and sound is gone

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?

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

I have a Whirlpool GD5SHAXLQ02 side by side refrigerator which is 7 1/2 years old. I replaced a kitchen faucet and in doing so, needed to shut off the water supply to the refrigerator.

I had a problem getting the ice bin back into my 1990 model side-by-side Sears/Whirlpool refrigerator. Several hours later I notice that everything was getting warm and the ice was defrosting. The compressor and fan came on when I turned the freeze control knob to the coldest position. 1 hour later the freezer was 10 degrees. I then turned the control knob to almost "A". Several hours later the temperature was back up to sixty in the freezer.
