You have a leak or the compressor is not starting,you need to pull the frig. out and see if you see any oil on the lines this would mean the freon is leaking out,also put your hand on the comp. and see if you feel it running if not you would need to go to your local appliance part store and get a 3in1 start kit and install it ,it's easy the directions are to the part,hope this helps you-mike

Freezer is working,but fridge is warm. Fan in back of fridge will not shut off.


If your fridge is not designed with an automatic de-icing function, then there may be an ice dam blocking the cold air from moving from the freezer to the fridge. I had a fridge once that would get blocked with ice even if the rest of the freezer was ice-free.

Unplug your unit (often shutting off the breaker is easier than digging behind the fridge for the plug).

Pull everything out of the freezer and put it in a box. Cover the box completely with blankets to insulate it so your food doesn't thaw and spoil. Prop open the freezer door and let any ice accumulation melt.

Once everything has thawed out, wipe up the water and plug the unit back in. You should be able to tell after 10 minutes or so whether the fridge is getting cooler or not.

My Whirlpool Refrigerator/Freezer Model #GR2FHTXVQ00 or GR2FHTXVO00 is not keeping food cold. Food is spoiling. Freezer is cold but Refrigerator is warm.


With signs of freezing up in freezer area that would indicate a problem with the defrost components. The most likely reason would be a defrost control board. 2304093 Defrost Control Board
Here is a link to a parts manual for your model=> GR2FHTXVQ00.pdf(1101.27 KB) Look on page 3 and part location 4 That is the=> 2304093 Defrost Control BoardThe next possible parts are the 2314157 Defrost Heater Assembly found as item location 4 on page 9 of the PDF. It may be a good idea to change the defrost thermostat=> 2321800 Defrost Thermostat found on page 3 with item location 28. If you have questions please let me know, Thanks John TrippAppliance 911

Each side won't get cold. food starts to spoil


How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control

Ice smells and tastes baaaad, water smells and tastes baad!!!! I changed the line and it still stinks...please help...


Check all of this;

  • Remove spoiled food
  • Clean refrigerator interior with a solution of hot water and baking soda
  • Clean the door seals
  • Remove breaker strips and check for wet insulation

To remove the breaker strips it is important to bring them up to room temperature first. If they are too cold they will be brittle and may crack. To warm the strips you can open the freezer and allow it to come up to room temperature (wait 2 to 4 hours) or you can soak a towel in warm water and hold it against the strips to warm them.


Good luck:

Problem with everything freezing inside icebox no matter where the control is set.


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 opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

Freeze does not cool down. Model kscs25fkss02


two things to try. open fridge. at top you will see temp slider for the freezer. adjust towards cold and see if that helps.

or: is ice door on ice/water dispenser closed all the way? this fails to shut all the way, then warm air from the room gets into freezer. If this happens, call the repair guy.

Admiral SAC224 fridge freezer: fridge intermittently freezes up


To Whiteorchid,

Found a fix for my issue ... hopefully it'll help you.
Up at the topleft rearmost corner of the fridge remove panel to reveal spring attached slots where cold is supplied from freezer. The spring attached had came off one end as there isn't a "slot" for the spring to hold in place (design fault?).Reattached the spring and taped on .... and hey presto fridge now working perfectly again. Hope this helps.
