Question about Hotpoint Refrigerators

1 Answer

My Hotpoint FSFL 1810G fridge compartment has stopped working

I cant feel any air circulating from the vents inside the fridge itself. It's not cool at all. Freezer still works though. THIS IS THE AIR TECH EVOLUTION MODEL SO NO ICE IN THE FREEZER.

It is not going into a defrost cycle and you have ice build up between freezer supply vent it frig side. It could be a defrost timer, defrost termination switch or defrost heater problem.

SOURCE: refrigerator stopped working, freezer works fine

Sounds like the evap fan is not running. The fan takes cold air from the freezer to cool the refer compartment. If the freezer is cold the compressor is running. Generally the freezer will stay cold since the cooling coils are there but it must have the fan working to get the air up to the refer area. Pull everything out the freezer and take the back panel off to view the coils and fan, etc. It's a simple easy job to change the fan. If you find the coils are a total block of ice then it's another problem... the defrost cycle isn't working. Sooo... see if the fan is running in the freezer compartment first. See http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/AA43-57.gif for fan location, item 18 is the fan motor. Let us know what you find out.

SOURCE: Freezer works; fridge side doesn't

First thing to check is look and see if there is  thick frost build up on the back lower panel inside the freezer?  If not there must be a problem in the damper (vent).  Let me know what you find so I can help.

If you are sure the fan in the freezer is running and you don't feel any air flow out of the top middle vent inside the fridge section, then the damper motor must be bad. The damper motor is behind that vent cover inside the fridge section.

Check the damper in the top back of the fresh food section. make sure that it is open and air is coming through it.

SOURCE: Westinghouse fridge: no cool air circulating inside

Art, I need to get a little more information from you. Does the condenser fan under the refrigerator seem to work and blowing warm air from below and or behind the refrigerator? The motor feeling warm is OK. Only when too hot to touch on top. Needs to cycle also. When you opened the freezer did you hear the fan blowing? Thanks, JT

When fridge freezer working is not gating cool


Your solution may be as simple as unloading excess items from the fresh food side and/or the freezer side. Cool air for the fresh food side gets cooled in the freezer side and gets circulated with a little fan. Find your vents in both the freezer and fresh food side and make sure these are not covered. I do not know how many service calls I have been on and just had to unload the excess items, particularly plastic bags which can easily be pulled over by air flow and cover the vents. After finding the vents, you should feel the air flow coming out of the supply vents, if not the fan is not operating and probably needs replaced. The fan has a cover in the freezer section and is behind panels. Normally there is some release catches that have to be released to remove these covers. sometimes there are screws that need to be removed also. As always a good refrigeration tech should be able to diagnose the problem in a few minutes and recommend and solution. If your refrigerator is under warranty, call the toll free number that is on your warranty paperwork and for a nominal service charge you can get a factory trained tech to fix your problem.
Hope this helps.

My ctf1826ar freezer works great but the fridge is not cooling. Nothing is frozen or blocked. When the freezer door is open there is cool air that comes our of the vents in the fridge but when it is...


the frig part not cooling though the freezer works is usually caused by bad air flow due to restriction somewhere. check ur vent settings and make sure not defective, the door rubber insulation may also be defective and not sealing properly after closing? and thus cool air escapes? but if ur feeling noticing air flow from the freezer but not in the fridge, the flow is obstructed, if the flow is off and on, do u notice the sound of the fan always running or does it go off and then on, it may be defective, the only time fan should go off is when in defrost mode?

My Maytag MFF2558VEM Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator doesn't keep cool


What you should be looking for is a blocked air flow. The fan in the freezer will push air up to the fridge and cool it off. Look for a dead fan motor in the freezer or a blocked air vent Good luck

Freezer is ok, but fridge is not cold enough


5 reasons for fridge and/or freezer getting warm: 1- the evaporator coils are icing up and won?t let air circulate. 2- the evaporator fan is not working to circulate air. 3- there is no refrigerant in the system. 4- no power to fridge or compressor. 5- the condenser coils have no air circulation check under the fridge behind the vent. if it is too dusty or the fan isn?t working, it is not getting enough airflow to cool down. replace fan and/or vacuum out the dust. if there is no power to the fridge, the light will be off. if the compressor is not running, there is a defrost timer that cuts the power temporarily to the compressor to melt ice on the coils. it?s located under the fridge behind the bottom vent. If the timer is off and the compressor is not going, the compressor or the main board is bad and needs replacing. there is also a temperature sensor on the evaporator coils that tells the defrost coil to turn on and when to turn off. if the defrost timer is on but the coil is not heating up, replace the sensor. if it still won?t heat up, it?s the timer or the coil. the easiest way to tell if there is no refrigerant- the freezer wall is warm and the compressor is loud. if there is no refrigerant, it may be more cost effective to replace the fridge. if you feel no air coming from the freezer vent, the fan needs replacing. If you feel air moving in the freezer but not the fridge, the channel from freezer to fridge is blocked.

I have a rm2611 refrigerator which has lights, no fan


There's a capacitor by or on the compressor that probalbly needs replacing. This is the cheapest route .

Refrigerator not cold/Freezer cold.


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent 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 .

.
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

MY FREEZER IS GETTING TOO COLD AND THE FRIDGE IS NOT GETTING COLD AT ALL


In most refrigerator freezers, the refrigerator gets its cold from the freezer. The evaporator fan circulates air over the coils in the freezer and cold air circulates into the refrigerator through vents. If the vents are blocked or closed, then the fridge will not get cold enough but the freezer will. If neither is cold enough, then the number of possibilities increases.
Lowering the freezer temperature will increase the cooling cycle activity. Setting the refrigerator temperature may have little affect on the cooling cycles because it simply changes the vent opening size. Decreasing the fridge temperature opens the vents more and increases air circulation from the freezer.
The temperature can be adjusted using the controls found inside the refrigerator or freezer. The ideal freezer temperature is about 0 to 5 degrees (F) and about 38 degrees (F) for the fridge.
Measure the temperature by placing a cup of water with a cooking thermometer into the refrigerator for about 2 hours or more. To test the freezer, substitute alcohol or cooking oil.
