Question about Refrigerators

Kitchenaid built-in refrig 15 yrs old cold freezer, warm fridge

Freezer at -8 degrees but refrig section holds at 42to 44 degrees. just had compressor,evaporator and heat exchanger (SEALED SYSTEM)replaced along with pan heater on dec 19,2008. could the thermostat be bad? the damper in the refrig has cold air blowing in from the freezer and does not seem to be stuck. can open fully when control in refrig is put to ''coldest'' . does the thermostat regulate how much cold air gets into the refrig? I made sure that nothing is blocking the damper and the cold air return is not blocked or clogged

It.s the frezer that makes the refer cold.the evap fan in the frezer moves that chilled air to the refer.if that fan is slow or any blockage inthe air ways it slows that process.Also the frezer should be close to 0 degrees if theres a defrost prob that would make fresh food warmer

How does the fridge compartment get cold? Is it a thermostat or condenser problem?


The self defrosting feature of your unit has a failed component. Possible defrost heater, defrost thermostat, or timer. The defrost timer may be part of the main circuit board of the unit.

The freezer compartment is working fine, holding at -18 degrees but the fridge section will not chill and has been holding at about 14-15 degrees for over a week but does not get any cooler than...


It sounds like one or more of your cooling tubes is blocked. Either you have a ice or frost buildup on your freezer side or something else is blocking it.

I would suggest you take a look behind the panel in your freezer and use a hair dryer or heat gun to blow warm air down the cooling tubes.

Freezer cold fridge warm


sounds like the evaporator in the freezer section is iced up and you need to see if the defrost section is working correctly,then as for the warm refrige side,it sound as if the vent damper door is frozen shut or the cold control in the refrige isn't opening it to let cold air into the refrige from the freezer,if its frozen take a hand held hair dryer and remove the vent grille over it and defrost it and then check to make sure the control opens and closes it as you adjust its control in the refrige

KSBP25FJSS01 refrig too warm, freezer working properly but fridge not cooling like it used to. 8 yrs old


Be sure it is not overfilled. There is a circulation fan in the refrigerator compartment that if it is not operating properly or blocked, will cause what you describe.

Good Luck,

ZFSB26DRESS water runs warm and freezer not staying cold.


It sounds like the condenser coils , the coils by the compressor , need cleaned badly . This (and the compressor cooling fan) , can cause the compressor to cut off on overload (due to the heat) , thereby not circulation refrigerant thru out the freezer coils .
The water line goes from inside the freezer door ( cold ) , under the refrig ( warm ) , then to the inside refrig water reservoir ( cold ) . After that , you should get cold water , until the reservoir is drained of cold water .

Kitchen aid top shelf warm


  1. check gasket
  2. check the light switch on top of the refrig. section. If then pushed the switch turns the light off, but the light is still on with the fridge door closed - door needs adjustment.

Freezer cold /refrigator warm . we have a side by side unit a couple of years old the freezer seems to work fine but the refrigator is warm .It don,t seem to make any funny noises and the back is clean


When the compressor is running, if the fan by the compressor and the fan inside the freezer are both running, and there is no frost on the back wall of the freezer (if there was frost would indicate a defrost issue) then check the air dampener. It is located at the very top left back side of the fresh food section. If it is not opening up, no air will flow from the freezer compartment (where all the cooling takes place) into the refrigerator section.

Freezer cold not frozen, fridge cool but not cold enough.


HI, simply replacing the thermostat and air diffuser assembly will fix this cold control issue you are experiencing.
