Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


we have a haier hrf14 and our freezer was working but the fridge wasn't so inside the freezer we took the back off to check the coils the fan inside the freezer had got condensaton on it and rusted up a little bit, we broke it loose and put wd40 on it and needless to say they are both working great now. Just thought that we would share that with you because we have children and a limited income and couldn't afford to get a new one or but new parts,.

Default Refrigerator runs a lot but doesn't cool enough.

Hello,
I have a side by side Fridgidare FRS24WRC. I had a problem a few months ago where the fridge didn't cool at all but the freezer seemed to work. I checked the condenser coils in the freezer and performed a manual defrost. and it seemed to work fine de icing the coils. The refrigerator side seems to cool just enough to keep food but the condenser seems to run all the time.
There is verry little cool air coming from the diffuser and the fan on the freezer side seems to be working fine.

any Ideas why the box continues to run. It shuts off every two minutes then starts again for approximately 10 min.

Default Ge Tbx 2i

I have a GE TBX 2I and the freezer is ice cold, however the fridge is super warm (65-70.) I am concerned because I don't have any ice anywhere, however there is condensation that is building up. I pulled off the panel in the freezer, no ice. No ice on coils, no ice in vents, no ice on fans....

What am I to do?

Mike

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 open.

Check your model number. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/im...refer_side.gif

I have a Maytag MSD2456GEQ side-by-side. I have been having the same problem, freezer working but refrigerator not working. There was no air coming into refrigerator section. Everytime I would defrost the freezer, the refrigerator side would work for a few days, then the air would stop flowing through again. This time I opened up the back panel of the freezer and found the coils were frosted up. From this thread it looks like most likely it is the defrost system. Is this something I can fix on my own? What parts will I specifically need? and where in the appliance are these parts located?

Please help!!!

Default Sears Kenmore Model #970-418529

Hello all.

I am encountering the same issue. Refrigerator is cool but not cold and the freezer is just fine. This is a Kenmore Model Freezer on top, fridge on bottom.
Currently I can feel some cold air coming through the vent in the fridge part, but the strength of the air flow isn't that strong. Is that normal? I can't find any manuals or parts break down based on my model info from the metal plate on the inside of the fridge.

I have already cleaned off the condenser line along with the fan at the bottom of the fridge. Another thing I have already read off this post and tried is removed the back cover inside the freezer and lubricated the fan with spray. The fan seems to be running fine now, previously I noticed that it wasn't running at all until I knocked on the plastic cover.

Please HELP!

Kenmore (made for Sears)
Model Number: 970-418529
Serial Number: BA60632450
About 6 years old approx.

Thanks in advance.

Jason
