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.

Kenmore frig does not turn off


How are the door seals doing? How clean is the under side of the fridge (the coils and the ability for air to flow). How clean is the back side of the fridge (the coils and the ability for air to flow). How clean is the metal jacket in general?
If you drag the fridge outside to hose it down, let it rest for an hour or two before plugging it back in.

Freezer is working OK (ice cream soft), refrigerator is not working...milk spoiled etc. What to do? Possible self-fixes?


Check under the fridge to assure the coils are clean, if not vacuum and clean with a brush accordingly. While you're down there, make sure the condenser fan motor is turning. Check inside the freezer compartment to make sure the evaperator fan is running.

GE TFX26KRDA WW 2001 side by side refrig/freezer w warm fridge


Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.

Kenmore Coldspot side by side fridge/freezer no longer cold.


The black thing is the compressor. It should run warm but not hot. This usually indicates it's time to clean the condenser coils under the refrigerator. Try using a long soft brush and your vacuum cleaner.

Fridge too cold


First, clean it the unit out and fully defrost.  Clean the condenser coils.  Don't pack in so much food, don't open the door too frequently.  Never block any air channels. Never leave uncapped liquids in the fridge or freezer.  Set the fridge at about 40 degrees...use an outdoor thermometer.  Freezer at about 0-5F.
