    refrigerator side not cooling...odor in refrigerator

  • izoc Oct 17, 2008

    I have the same problem; temp in fridge side is 60, freezer is fine, no visible ice buildup on walls. Replaced something a year ago that had ice built up all over, something with the defrost in the freezer side. The fan is running. Is there a damper that prevents the cold from going into the refridgerator side? Could it possibly be the temp. set knob at top?

Fridge warm, freezer cold. repair guy said its fine if milk is not spoiling. but set at 6 coldest temp is around 40


Can you feel air movement from the freezer to the refrigerator side through the cooling tubes when the evaporator fan is operating?

If not you might have some ice build up in the cooling tube that is not allowing the refregerator to get cold enough. Try a hair dryer to clean it.

There are a lot of possibilitys. You'll have to use the process of elimination.

But it could be the thermostat (make sure your setting is midway) The milk spoiling indicates it is too warm so bacteria is breeding

Get a refrigerator / freezer stand alone thermostat (about $5) That will give you accurate readings. The fridge shoud be between 35 and 40 F and the freezer 0 plus or minus 3 when set correctly

It could be your condensor fan is clogged or just that your coils need cleaning (underneath or behind) Use a vacuum with the brush end or chisel point. Dust can cut you efficiency by 20 or 30% by itself.

Assuming this is frost free model the defrost timer may be acting up in the freezer.

Forgive me for not knowing where the coils are and if it is frost free but I can't find a manual for this particular model. However the principles apply in any case.

Freezer not freezing and refrigerator not cold


The most common problem is the condenser under the refrigerator is clogged with lint. Pull the unit away from the wall for clearance,tip it rearward, and have someone use a vaccum on the dust. Unplug the unit while working on it and remove what can slide around be careful not to damage the works underneath, as dirt is the whole problem.................. Get it clean as you can and reset to factory settings and leave it alone for 24 hours.

The FACT THAT IT IS STILL FREEZING MEANS THE WORKS ARE OK.!
If it still doesn't work correctly, you need freon added by aservice man, but I think cleaning is all you will need.
