Fridge not cold but freezer working great

I have a Haier Model HTQ18JABWW-02 the freezer is working great but the fridge is not cold. Temp is running around 50 degrees. I found that there was ice keeping the cold air from getting to the fridge. I turned off the fridge and let it melt and it was working for about 2 weeks. Now it is doing the same thing. What do I do??

I had the same problem, and it turned out to be a cooked fan motor.
I couldn't find a reasonable (less than $150) replacement motor from Haier places, but I just took the motor out and took it to an appliance repair center (in North Denver)
They said it was a standard part, charged me around $22 for a new one and I was all set.

For my replacement motor, it was a reversible design, and was initially set to go the wrong way, so I had to reverse it.

I have a haier model # htq18jabww-01 and the freezer seems to b working fine but the fridge does not seem to be cold at all...any soultions??


The "Cold-to-Coldest" adjuster in the freezer steals chilled air from the refrigerator to add more to the freezer. It's a mechanical damper. Set it fully CCW to cold (warmest position). I also put duck tape over half the chilled air outlets in the freezer to increase the chilled air pressure feeding the refrigerator section. Set the thermostat in the refrigerator to 8 or 9 and the freezer works fine and everything in the refrigerator is 38F.

Freezer works great, but fridg. will not get below 50


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.

Freezer is cold cold....fridge is at approx 50 degrees


Hello lmk400,
Welcome to fixya,


Haier HRF10 Top Freezer Refrigerator
You siad, your freezer is cold cold....fridge is at approx 50 degrees What could it be ????????

1. The first thing it could be is that you have a freezer that is packet to the ceiling.
And so full that it's articles are covering the air vents found in the rear of the freezer.
They are need to be clear for the cold air to circulate form and to the fridge compartment.
Yes that is correct!
The freezer and the fridge both share the same air and to restrict the air causes the other
to get warm.
And will eventually burn out your fan motor or possibly your compressor!

OR

2. Your fan motor is already burned out.
Try checking this and clearing the vents.
It will take some hours to get cold and all night to reach peak temperature, if this is your reason!
If not you should then try turning off the fridge AND, then unplugging it for five minutes.
This should reset the system if there is an electronic glitch!

If all this fails you may be low on freon and need service to add some.

If the fridge was left open a crack all night or all day by accident it will cause this!
or if you go shopping and while unloading or loading the fridge with the door wide open running back and forth to the kitchen table for some extended time to!
Gather all the cold stuff near the fridge and put them in quickly!

I gave you a lot to work with and I hope the first two suggestions are the fix and solve your problem.
Let me know!!!!

Whirlpool side by side refrigerator not cooling


Hello danielscynt,
Welcome to Fixya,

You said, freezer is fine the refrigerator is 50-65 does not get colder than 50.the evaporator fan is working but it seems to be blowing very little air
Have a 1998 Hotpoint Model # CTX16CAZDRAD Serial # ZS738209. The refrigerator is not cooling. Temp is at 66 degrees with setting at 5. The Freezer is working, but it seems to be running all the time. Please help!

There are a few things that come to mind!

The Freezer is working, but it seems to be running all the time, you said!.
This could be a bad thermostat!

But lets try some simple maintenance first!
Is your freezer packed too the hilt with packages???????
Where the articles cover the air vents in the freezer?

The freezer and the fridge share the cold air and the passages must not be blocking the cold air from moving out of the freezer!.Search your freezer !

Also your fridge is 10 years old!
Did you ever remove the plastic grille at the bottom of the fridge along the front, and GENTLY run a refrigerator brush along the black metal tubes running back and forth under the fridge?
( You can buy this brush at any hardware store $10.)
They must not be covered in ten years of lint and dust. These narrow tubes carry the freon and run in this parallel fashion back and forth, so they are cooled by the air being **** through them.
if not and they overheat your fridge will get warm.

If the tubes are found to be covered or submerged in dust sometimes I have found them one to two inches thick in dust, and sometimes they are even not visible until you clean the dust out.
Then it will take 10 to 24 hours for the system to get back to full working temperature again. As long as the heat did not cause permanent damage!

if these are not the answer, then you may need a hands on diagnoses!
BUT, most of the time these two things are what I find!

Let me know how it goes!!!!!!!!

Thank You for asking my advice!

Fridge doesn't get cold enough


you have either a Defrost heater / a defrost timer/ or a defrost bi-metal that is bad. if you post your model # i can look it up and show you how to set it into defrost to see if the heaters are ok
Since you replaced the timer already that leaves two things you need to check set it into defrost if you know how and remove the panel in the back wall of the freezer you should see the heater(s) are on if not check pwr 120vac at the heaters if 0 volts the bi-metal is bad

Freezer at 10 deg, fridge at 50


haier refrigerators have been known to have the cold control go bad. it only sense's the temp in the fresh food section so that would be why the freezer is still ok. The problem is the control is cutting out to fast and not letting the temp go lower. from what you said i would take that there is good air flow between the freezer and the fresh food compartment. so the only thing it could be is the cold control. I would replace it and you should be all set.
