Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Sub zero 211 rfd refrigrertor/freezer (on bottom) does not get cold enough to freeze bottom unless you turn the thermostat to a colder setting. Then the refrigerator (top) starts freezing contents as well. Is the bottom freezer fan supposed to run when the top fan is running (it is not running)? If so, I think the freezer motor may not be turning on. Are there any other fixes besides replacing the freezer motor ?

The freezer is very cold, but cant get the fridge part to get cold. I THINK the seal is the problem. Could

The freezer and refrigerator sides not cooling correctly. Both maintain some cooling at the bottom, but warm at the top, 50+ degrees. Refrigerator side at bottom is actually below freezing; freezer is not. Fan motor sounds as if it is running, but have not heard the compressor cycle on and off for some time, and when it does it goes off very quickly.

I have a Frigidaire Model FRS26ZNH Side by Side. Refrigerator side not cooling (no air flow from top). Freezer side fine, however back panel and coils are freezing up. If I turn off the freezer side and remove back panel and use a fan to thaw out the coils in back of freezer, unit will run fine for a few days until it freezes up again. Fan motor was running constant, however when I went to unfreeze the coils again today, the fan motor was not running at all. Any suggestions!!

I have a model ARB2257CSR Amana frige (freezer on bottom) and the freezer is not working I think. there is a sound that comes on and off like the motor maybe is trying to come on... the sound comes from the bottom of the frige in the back where the fan is . The fan is on and cold air is blowing into the frige. my bread and bananas are not frozen anymore but my meat is. so I'm afraid its gone.

I have the Sub Zero 550 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator. Just recently, the Freezer section started getting warmer and the ice maker stopped working...all at roughly the same time.
