SOURCE: freezer is not getting cool

The first thing you need to do is take out the bottom drawer in the freezer and look into the slots in the back panel. Make sure that you can see silver coils, and not a bunch of frost. If there is, then you need a new defrost timer, defrost heater, or defrost terminator.

If this checks out ok, make sure that the coils underneath are clean and the fan is also turning (underneath the unit).
If all looks ok then make sure the fan in the freezer is running. (You may have to push the door switch if yours has one.) If the freezer fan isn’t blowing however, the freezer will be warm at the top and cool at the bottom, and you fresh food compartment will be warm.

Another thing to make sure is that the light it turning off when the door is closed. Again you would have to push on the door switch. I was amazed to learn when I first started this line of work, that even a little light bulb can make enough heat to cause a problem.
Let me know if everything looks ok and I will go over some other things, as the list of things that can go wrong with a refrigerator is fairly long.

SOURCE: The frezer not cool enoug

you may not have enough air circulation at the rear of the machine when you moved it. if the machine can not loose heat through the radiator at the back it looses its cooling capacity. move it back to where it was?

SOURCE: My refrigerator is cool but cool enough and so is

Your refrigerator's defrost heater is not working. The frig's cooling coils are frozen up because the defrost switching unit needs replacing. It is a cheep fix. Call a refrigerator repairman and have it replaced. Max cost is around $ 100.00 mike
to prove this turn off refrigerator a couple of hours with the doors open and you will notice water appear on your floor as unit defrosts and it is more water than your defrost pan can hold. As it overfills it will spill over onto your floor. If you turn it back on it will work properly for about two weeks and it will start the problem again. mike

Ac not blowing cool air. How many fan are there in the engine department? how does the fan system work to cool the condenser?

The fans are inportant but the regular raditior fan will do it and the road speed of the car will blow enough air though the codenser to make it cool if it's going to. Does the compressor turn on? if it does do the lines hooked to it get hot?( the small one) and the big one get cold? The condenser should get hot, Hot enough to burn you and the freon level may be wrong and or the compressor isn't pumping. ( brocken inside)

Side by side doesn't cool down enough. Freezer

If the back panel on the inside of the freezer section is all snowed up looking you have a defrost problem, if the fan in the back of the freezer is not running, you may have a bad fan motor or a bad defrost terminator, hold freezer door switch closed with your hand and listen for fan.

If the fan by the compressor stopped on the outside of unit or the condensor coils are badly in need of cleaning it also will not cool properly.

Lastly, a leak or bad compressor may be the cause.(unit usually runs without shutting off, hope this helps

My fridge IS NOT getting cold enough. Temp control is maXxed. The freezer seems cold enough and making ice cubes. this is a GE fridge model #TBF16DRB

Try cleaning the coils beneath the refrigerator. Its possible that they are covered with dust and blocking a fresh flow of cool air to help cool the refrigerator inside. Just a little cleaning there will make a big difference. Check your door seals also a small opening will let the cool out and the hot in. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Intertherm not cooling correctly

Sound like air flow problem to me, the inside and the outside. check the inside filter to see if it's clean and clean the outside condenser coils by washing it.
