Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, a couple of possibilities you may want to check, consider, try:

  • evaporator fan - purpose is to draw cold air from the freezer and blow it to the refrigerator section. This is actually what cools the fridge side. A test is to open the door, press and hold on the door switch, light should go out, fan should come on after a minute or so. If not, possibly a defective fan (most likely) or faulty controller (least likely);
  • thermostat - this is both a sensor and a switch. It sets the coldness level of the fridge area. Once it senses that the fridge temperature is relatively high, then it triggers the controller to engage the compressor and kick in the evaporator fan. A continuity where its resistance would change depending on the ambient temperature;
  • controller board (a possibility) - as the name implies, it controls the functions of most (if not all) of the active components of the refrigerator/freezer. It receives input from the different sensors and reacts accordingly by switching other components on/off.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: freezer cold, not fridge

8 to 10 hours depending on how much warm items you placed inside to cool down. Make sure your fresh food section settings are set for medium. I'm not sure from what country you are from but a standard setting for both freezer and refrigerator should be set both mid way. For example (not that you need help here) 1 being the warm being the warmest and 10 being the coldest. Now some companies go like 1 being the coldest and 10 being the warmest. But 5 should be set up for first time start ups no matter where you are from. Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: warm fridge cold freezer

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's open.
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.
check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat

If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the timer.

Emerson compact fridge with freezer compartment freezer is very cold fridge nothing just warm is there any fan to blow air>> thanks


Your freezer fan unit may be frozen behind the inside wall and therefore not circulating the cold air down.
Se if you can remove the screws and back wall to check the fan unit.
Not all modeles can be repaired this way

Westinghouse freestyle fridge &freezer work but warm after being turned off fo 90 days


What happens in that 72 hours is the evaporator coil get's so much frost built up on it that the fan in the evap. freezer fan has no where to circulate the cold air (where the cold is produced). Basically you have a restriction between freez/fridg. sections you have defrost problem> It is one of three things d heater,d t stat, or your d timer.I need the model # to tell you what my sugestions would be and where to start.

I would guess you have just caused a build up of ice to block the air way, which normally takes cold air into the fridge. manually defrost (unplug and wait until the ice goes away) then restart and it should be fine

Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control.

The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

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.

Fridgidare, freezer cold fridge warm


sounds like you may have gotten a refridgerant leak causing a low charge condition. some refridgerators have a evaporator fan if this quit working it will cause it to freeze up .thus the freezer does not use a fan and it will still get cold
