Re: Fridge working fine, But freezer will not go below -8...

It does sound like you have a low refrigerant gas problem - only way to be sure is get a service guy to check. If you notice particularly cold parts on the wall of the fridge or freezer, rather than the more even cooling that would be normal, then this is almost certainly the problem, and should be easily enough fixed by a qualified technician. The other possibilities are: The thermostat in the freezer could be faulty -hard to test without the right gear, but just check that the temperature adjustment knob for the freezer if it has a rotary one hasn't slipped on its shaft - this would give you a different temperature than the setting you have set. Check the freezer door seal/hinge and make sure it is sealing properly all around especially at the bottom - only a small gap can make a big difference Check the back of the unit is getting enough ventilation - it should get fairly hot normally but if the ventilation is restricted then the heat has nowhere to go and the freezer wont cool completely - if there is a lot of dust on the back then give it a gentle brush - the pipes are quite fragile so be gentle. If you havent defrosted the unit for a while, try that - leave it open and off at least overnight until there is no difference between the temperature inside and outside - sometimes small amounts of moisture in the refrigerant gas can freeze into crystals and block or partially block the gas system, once they defrost they should be dealt with further round the system by the filter/drier and hopefully will no longer be a problem Hope this helps :)

Sub zero 532. freezer works fine --0 degrees. fridge wont get below 50 degrees. cleaned condenser fins- still no decrease in temp

check the fan that runs between the freezer and the fridge --check fan for ice blockage -debris-or damage / clean or clear blockage --if not running test wiring and connections as well as motor /repair or replace //also check fan damper is not frozen or blocked its flap that opens and closes for air to flow //----ur fridge side is cooled from the the freezer side the cold air is blown in from the freezer if fan or damper is not working correctly than fridge is usually warm and freezer is working properly

Fridge running at higher than 4 degrees.

I have the same problem with my F&P fridge/freezer although I'm not sure how old it is because I bought it from my landlord when he moved out. I call the repairman who said turn it off and defrost the freezer. I turned it off last night, defrosted the freezer as there was some ice build up internally at the rear and turned it on again. It went fine, I set it at the coldest (gauge on colder) setting and this morning it was quite cold. Today I get home from work and it's hardly cold, no condensation on the lemonade or beer bottles! Will be interested to hear others thoughts before I call the repair man again. thanks, Jenny

Whirlpool 6 sense model WSC5513- A+ X side by side, without ice or water dispenser. Refrigerator part not cooling properly. Temperature setting is -18 degrees Celsius for the freezer and 2 degrees...

The temp for the fridge is about right and -18 for the freezer is ok so check to see if the water filter is plugged, at 8 degrees Celsius is about 18 degrees fht. Which is freezing so the numbers don't add up. 26 degrees below zero on the freezer side is what you want if it that cold it could have frozen the water line.

Burnt smell inside freezer.

Generally speaking it is the refrigerator control that controls the compressor operation. Refrigerator is cooled by air from the freezer. When the refrigerator gets down to its designed temperature it shuts off the compressor. The freezer control determines how much air is allowed to flow into the refrigerator section and there-by controls the freezer temperature.

Hot Point Side by Side. Freezer works, Fridge not cool enough

check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing, check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting, you can try turning that to Warmer Freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.
