Unusual, usually the other way arround, check the fan if there is one inside, could be an air circulation problem.

Freezer only gets down to around 18 degrees but fridge is fine. No frost on the freezer evaporator fan is running


Modern consumer refrigerators only have coils in the freezer. In the lower back of the freezer there is a small fan and possible a damper (flap that opens/closes) to push cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator. Given that the freezer is 18 deg, it's probably cold enough to keep the fridge area at typically 34 deg.
So the cooling system (compressor, coils, thermostat) are not working properly to keep the freezer at, typically 0 deg. Possible causes: partial loss of refrigerant gas, icing around evaporator coils (in freezer), compressor failing, dust clogging condenser coils (under fridge), condenser fan clogged or broken (under fridge), thermostat failure.
I'd start with condenser. Remove the slotted trim at the bottom front and look in with a flashlight. Are the coils clean? Pull out the fridge and remove the lower back cover (usually cardboard). You can now see the coils and fan. Clean and blow them out.
If it's icing, it probably means freezer door not closing tight. If auto-defrost not working properly it would probably get worse over the period of a few days so not likely.

Kelvinator fridge not cooling


Try defrosting the fridge. Check the cold plate at the back of the food compartment once the fridge has been defrosted and turned back on again. The cold plate in the freezer (around the walls) will be cold to touch as will the cold plate at the back of the fridge,

Fridge not getting cold


With a top freezer the cold air comes from the freezer down into the fridge. It uses a fan to blow the air down. It's possible that the fan is burned out. Does the fan come on if you turn the temp. to the fridge to colder? If not, then that may be the problem. The fix is not too easy, but can be done by an experienced do-it-yourselfer.

Freezer not freezing.just put new thermastat in it


fridges and freezers work on the following principal: the freezer area is cooled and the cold air is circulated and shared with the fridge area.
So the keys to a good working unit are first to set the freezer so that it is at the desired temperature, then adjust the fridge control to get the desired fridge temperature
air flow is the only thing that the fridge thermostat controls, so keep the clutter in the fridge to a minimum
also dirt and hair dust etc build up on most appliances that have a fan so clean the areas around the back and bottom of the unit
remember any time you work on an electrical appliance unplug it first
lastly fridges with frost free designs need to have a clear drain from under the freezer all the way down to the bottom where the compressor motor is make sure this is also kept clean
if this fails to solve your problem then likely there is a leak in the system or compressor problem, but if this is the case your freezer will not work correctly either
remember the only cooling is done at the freezer znd cold air is sent through the fridge
lastly obviously the fridge and freezer are highly insulated and sealed and these are both important

We have a freezer bottom fridge- the freezer is working but the fridge stopped working. We tried cleaning the vents and unplugging and re-plugging. It sounds like it's on but there's no cold air on the...


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it.Make sure the fan is running. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

Refrigerator not cool, freezer ok


Either the freezer continues to freeze up (most likely due to low refrigerant, due to a leak), or there is an obstruction between the freezer and the refrigerator (refrigerators get their cooling from the freezer).

Given that it works after you defrost it, I'm going with low gas. Call a professional to see if the leak can be fixed. If the unit is more than 10 years old, just get a new one.

Fridge & freezer not cold enough


EASY FIX. TAKE ALL FOOD OUT OF FRIDGE AND FREEZER AND STORE IT.

THEN UNPLUG YOUR FRIDGE FOR 24HOURS WITH DOORS OPEN.

YOU WILL HAVE TO CLEAN UP ALOT OF WATER. THEN CLEAN THE FRIGE.

WHEN YOU PLUG IT BACK IN IT WILL WORK.

BUT THIS IS JUST A TEMP FIX. IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN IN ABOUT A YEAR OR TWO.

TO GIVE U A MORE PERMANENT FIX WILL TAKE SOME TIME. TRY THIS FIRST.

Hello sewing6
Welcome,


You said,

Try turning the fridge and the freezer off at the controls.
Then turning off the breaker for the fridge for 5 minutes .
then turn the breaker back on and restart the fridge and freezer!
This should reset the system and solve your problem.
let me know how it goes.

Thank You,
Huuum
Please remember to leave a rating! Hopefully a "solved "one.

Freezer cold but not fridge


too much ice bulid up will stop enough cold air being blown into the fridge.Try turning it off letting all ice melt then turn it back on again and set thermostat at a lower temp.There may be ice you can't see.

Hello

Well the sheet of ice was caused by the thermostat failing and causing the fridge to continously run therefore causing the over freezing..

Like a car engine if you leave it running for weeks on end without stopping it probably will burn out...

Or like a horse is you have it working day in day out with out rest it will die..

you compressor on your fridge is no more... it ran and ran and now its all worn out .....

The clicking noise at the back of the fridge is the compressor trying to swtich on but it can't

only a professional can legally change over the compressor
as it is a techincal process recharging the fridge with gas


if you need any other help let us know...

you need a new fridge by the way
