Hello I can help with this problem , You can set it to the factory setting thats normaly in the middle , wait 24 hours for temps to equalize and check temp in freezer with an accurate thermometer it should be -10 to +10 deg. Far. to adjust temp move dial up or down only one digit at a time and wait 24 hours on each adjustment until its at a correct temp.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Hot point Fridge/ freezer

All the cooling is in the freezer and the control in the fridge side only controls a damper to let in cold air as needed. To do what you want you have to replace the thermostat to a lower temp rated unit

SOURCE: The strip between freezer and fridge is very hot

sounds as if you either need to clean the coils under the unit,they are clogged and unable to disapate correct amount of heat, or your fan mounted behind the unit, next tothe compressor has failed..YOUR UNIT IS WORKING EXTRA HARD TO GET RID OF HEAT.check those 2 places

Stumped by Damper Control malfunction symptoms


U seem to have a good handle on things but the flapper door is still not operating properly. Rather than create more agita for yourself, you just might want to consider replacing the assembly if not that expensive. OR experiment with various flapper door openings till you get a more reasonable refrig temp since 25 is too low. Aim for 35 - 38 degrees.

Bottom of ref colder than the top


There is an air duct between the freezer and the refrig which has to be set for what is in the bottom drawer ,either fresh veggies or meat.
check the settings.
is it defrosting as it should?is there snow type frost on the evap cover in the freezer?
if this isn't the problem very limited opening of the refer can cause
the cold freezer temp to migrate to the frig side due to inactivity .
did you actually take temps of both sides around the mid point of both sides to see if they are correct .ref 35-37 freezer 0_+5 at normal settings.
many things can cause this issue.you must eliminate them one by one.

My freezer temp registers 28 - 36, I cleaned out coils, I notice that there is a fan in the back bottom right side, not sure what should make that run. My Ice is slowly melting. I had the freezer setting...


That fan behind the refrig , is the fan that cools the compressor . It should be running any time the compressor runs . If not running , replace it . The center divider between the fridge and freezer ( front strip ) should be getting hot to the touch if the fan is not running .

Fridge freezer over heating and is not cooling fridge section


It is normal for the middle strip to be hot. Did you check the temp setting in the fridge section?
Also - you might check for blockage in the bottom. Excessive dirt/dog hair can block the air flow.
Good luck

Kitchenaid superba refer side by side


its normal for the temperature to stay around 28 degrees farenheight int the bottom drawer. (fresh cut meat keeps better at his temp). you can adj the temp slide near the bottom of the refrig next to the botom drawer to help adj temp. veggies will almost always freeze in the bottom drawer. also adj the temp controls to a little bit warmer to help as well.


Keep in mind the mid point settings on your refrig is just a starting point for you to adj to where it works best for you and your usage..
