Feel with your hand for the spot where you feel the cold air entering into the refrigerator compartment.
Look for something near the area that says more/less cold. Sounds like the air flow is stuck open allowing too much air from the freezer compartment entering into the refrigerator compartment. A refrigerator works off the basics of recieving cold air from the freezer compartment.

John Lewis Fridge Freezer - Freezer compartment is working, fridge light works, but the fridge is not working. Please help!


Leaving the freezer door open for extended period of time could have caused the evaporator to freeze up and prevent cold air being driven into refrig compartment. Unplugging it for 24 hours will give it a great chance to unfreeze. You can also check the freezer temps before you do this - bet they are no where close to the ideal of zero degrees since the ice buildup is an insulator and prevents the freezer compartment from going down to the correct temps. And if the freezer is not at least 10 degrees or less your ice maker, if you have one, will not work since it has a thermostat that only cycles the ice maker at 10 degrees or less.

Our Sharp refrigerator model SJ-F60PC. 4 doors, freezer at the bottom and fridge at top. The fridge section is not cold although the freezer section is working fine. Much appreciated if anyone can help!


Your defroster timer switch may be at faught. The defrost timer turns on a heating coil to defrost your frige. This is only a guess since I don't have the year. Do this: feel the walls if they are hard and they have no give to them, then your fridge is frozen up solid and no air can circulate. Unplug you fridge for 24 to 36 hours. Put towels on the floor to catch the water. If the defrost timer is bad it will defrost naturally with room temp. Plug back in after 24 to 36 hrs and see if bottom is now getting cold. If it is the defrost timer, the solution is not cheap. It's up to you to repair or invest in new. Good luck Google burdfrenzy

The freezer temp is fine but the fridg temp is 50 degrees. It will not get colder than that. I have left it off for 24 hours to defrost and turned it back on and this did not solve the problem.


try moving the temp around,then if you tryed that already then defrost your frige turn off completly for one day if that dont fix it check if switch is working,last thing is the change the compressor

I have a fridge-freezer. the fridge is working fine but the freezer isn't very cold, its about the same temp as the fridge. I have changed the temp dial but this makes no difference.


I Have a fridge-freezer, the freezer is now filled with ice/frost on sides and top, as if it were not frost free. I addition, the fridge is not very cold

Samsung side by side srs580dw stops freezing and chilling


Since the temps on the display don't show correctly I'd assume something is wrong with that. If the temps are sending info out that the unit is OK and at proper temp (when it's not) then the compressor won't turn on because it thinks the fridge is cold enough. Soooo... I'd suspect that control board. It's item 48 on this diagram http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/SS10-2.gif
