The refrigerator is not getting cool. The freezer side is working properly.
If youre freezers making ice, and the ice remains dry, there is nothing wrong with the refrigeration cycle or components, the issue is merely insufficient airflow from the freezer into the refrigerators box.
The reefer box is 100% reliant upon the freezer for all of its cooling capacity the reefer section is a byproduct of the freezer, only the freezer has an evaporator coil, there is a small duct between the two sides, the freezer box and reefer box and a movable flapper door/damper that allows or disallows the freezers cold air to migrate into the refrigerators section.
This is a huge and common issue as evidenced by the numerous examples posted here saying, My freezers fine, but reefers warm!!! Impossible actually, unless the damper door that modulates the freezers airflow into the reefers box is closed down, not allowing enough freezer air into the reefers box.
Now when one sets a temp on a reefer the thermostat with the 1=10 and off setting that will cyle the unit off is the 1st place we go, and we raise the setting to cooler temp desired, or max it out most commonly as more is better?? NOT! Sure its fine to peg, max or increase the thermostats setting to the coldest seting, if you want a colder reefer box.
However where the counter intuitive labeling of the remaining dial or setting is where everyone messes up and actually exascerbates the warm reefer box isssue they discovered and attemptef to rectify by peggimg, maxing or at least raising the coldness desired .
The remaining setting has no electrical circuits and cycles no compressor or fan or anything except closing or opening the door that seperates the freezer box and reefers box
If you will notice the writing carefully it says cooler and warmer, or colder warmer etc.
The logical thing to do and waht 99% do when they suspect the reefers warm is raise both, or max both, which males for a colder freezer temp not the reefer! if the dampers ets at max or coldest is shut odff to the reefers box, allowing for a colder freezer as was stsated on the dial only thing is its for the wrong box!! If the freeezers ok and making ice that is dry the setting for airflows off or broken or damper doors stuck obstructed, I cant telll you how many times i billed $85 bucks to set the damper in the middle setting whrre all the dials should be anyways!!!
