This answer was rated:

purchased a haier refrigerator in may 2009.
refrigerator portion just stopped cooling. freezer still working.
cannot believ its breaking down after less than 2 years.
i read onlline other people have many issues with the company.
only thing still under warranty is the compressor.
1). could it possible be the compressor with the freezer still working?
2). is this brand of refrigerator worth trying to fix with a call to a technician or should I dump it?
3). is this a common problem with the brand that I could try to purchase a part myself and fix?

Randy 43 :

hi ,if the compressor was faulty the freezer wouldnt be cold,i think you are most likely looking at a faulty feezer fan,it is the fan that blows the cold air to the fridge compartment, that was a common issue with haier fridges

Customer :
