SOURCE: warm fridge cold freezer

Hi, With the information you supplied i'm going to assume there is an ice build up at the rear of the freezer. Your problem is going to be with your defrost system. I will also assume you have the ability to repair this yourself. This is going to be one of three problems with your refridgerator, 1st thing to do is remove shelfs and panel in the back of the freezer...you should see ice build up on the evaporator...don't worry get a hair dryer and melt the ice. Next locate the wires for the heater...using a multi meter test the heater for condinuity...if the heater is bad replace it, If the heater is good replace the defrost thermostat..the stat normally is a barrel looking part clipped onto the evaporator pipe. The last possible problem could be the evaporator fan, have you heard the fan running in the past few hours?..if you are not sure pull the panel out to where you can see fan and watch it over an hour to see if it turns. I have included links with pictures of what the parts you need to check are: http://romulusappliance.com/manufacturers/maytag/refrigerators/575432.JPG defrost stat http://www.hotekalliance.com/UploadFiles/2008627111553382.jpg heaters http://www.applianceblog.com/archives/EvapMotor1018185.jpg evap fan. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. If you decide to get a repair guy in should not cost you any more then $120 - $200 depending on make/model/problem Good luck & thanks for using fixya!

Chef Base is cool but not cold enough and way to adjust this..


  • Check the thermostat control. Even if you've not touched it, something may have knocked it and adjusted the setting. The thermostat may also need to be adjusted depending on the temperature of its surroundings and the coldness of the weather.
  • Make sure any food stored in the fridge or freezer is not blocking any air vents. This can stop air circulating properly.
  • If the fridge is too close to the wall, the condenser coils will not function properly.
  • Defrost the fridge and freezer thoroughly and clean the inside surfaces with warm water. Check any air vents to ensure they are not blocked.
  • Clean the condenser coils at the back of the fridge using a vacuum cleaner, making sure all dust and any dirt are removed. Clean any stubborn dirt away with warm soapy water, being careful not to scrape the coils. Turn your fridge off and unplug it before doing this.
  • Make sure the fridge's fans are not clogged and are able to function properly. Again, you need to turn your fridge off and uplug it before attempting this.
  • Check the door is closing properly. Make sure nothing is obstructing it or pushing it slightly open. Ensure the seals around the edge are working well.

American fridge/freezer - fridge stopped cooling, freezer side ok


Have you pulled out the refrigerator and cleaned or used a vacum cleaner to get out the dirt and dust off the back of the coils, or if the coils are underneath, you need to get an inexpensive appliance brush for fridge, and clean the coils under the fridge, pull off the panel on the front bottom of the fridge, get a flash light and look to see if the coils are covered in dust....may just need to vacum and use appliance brush underneath...this should be done at least one a year, you will notice your fridge running much better and cooling back to normal.......hope this helps......

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.

Whirlpool side by side - refrigerator not staying cold


How old is it? have you ever cleaned the coils under neath where the dust gathers?
I've seen people that never cleaned the coils underneath and behind the plastic grill at the bottom front of the fridge that had a warm fridge and the after they used a refrigerator brush down below were okay the next day!They had 2 inches of solid dust under there blocking the air that is supposed to be passing over the coils to cool the system!! Get out the book and read the directions how to do this procedure that I'm telling you about first before you call service! If it's not caked with dust and obscuring
the site of the coils, then you need service instead!
Bless You
