My freezer seems to be working, but my fridge is warm. I don't feel any cold air coming in from the freezer/upper duct. I've actually removed the upper damper and checked the return for blockages. The compressor runs and the fan in the freezer is running.
I opened the back panel of the freezer, and the level of frost seems normal and it seems to be going thru a normal defrost cycle.
Could it be a problem with the temperature control? What does this part actually control?
FYI, twice in the past six months the freezer has defrosted to the point where I had water pooling on the floor and things melting, but this isn't happening anymore. The first time cleaning out underneath (compressor area) with a vacuum seemed to fix and the second time it started working again after I bumped it against a wall. Guess I'm the Fonz.
Thanks is advance for any help,
ANSWER Hi Mike. Is the freezer back wall full of frost? This will cause a no cool. At least you verified a couple of issues. If there is frost on the back wall - then you have a defrost issue. The defrost thermostat is part # WR50X122. The defrost heater is part # WR51X10029. The defrost timer is part # WR9X489. Thank you.
