My refrigerator won't get cold

My refrigerator won't get get cold.it's been doing that on and off at times since we bought it 4months ago.why does it do that?we turn it from colder to off,and back on,turn the crisper from high to low,and back high,and it still doesn't get back cold untiil a few days later.we have to move our food and milk to the freezer which is only as cold as the refrigerator should be.someone has come and looked at it,and say they can't find nothing wrong.he said the problem was that we had some meat in the freezer in a grocery store bag,and the bag was sucking all the air out of the refrigerator,that's why it wouldn't get cold.there haven't been any grocery store bags in there since,so now what's the problem and how can i get my fridge cold and have stay that way all the time? fridge model #FRT18G6JBO

The freezer does not freeze - food (meat) had to be discarded as it was spoiled.

    I'm having the same problem with my fridge; my fridge is a General Electric (purchased in 2003). I notice that the more food I have in the fridge, the colder it gets; however the less food I have in the fridge the warmer it is. This doesn't make any sense to me, but you may want to pay close attention the temperature of the fridge at a time when your fridge is filled with food as well as when it is empty.

Freezer and refrigerator are not very cold


if it is a cheap refrigerator the compressor may not be able to handle keeping both areas cold at the same time... try turning down the fridge temperature to see if the freezer then gets colder.

My GE TFX30PP is constantly running and doesn't turn off. The freezer is very cold but the frig side isn't cold enough. A repair guy put in a new "cold contol" sensor but it didn't help.


This is a very common issue, If the freezer compartment is cold and making ice the
problem is simply airflow from the freezer into the refrigerated section.
Typically when one senses the refrigerator is warm they max out the settings
on both dials the thermostat with its 1-10 settings as well as off for the compressor.
This controls the compressor and temperature.
The additional setting or dial is for colder freezer or refrigerator as well , However
it simply opens or closes a flapper door between the freezer and refrigerator boxes.
When that dial or setting is maxed , it closes and makes the freezer colder, yet leaves the refrigerated section starved for sufficient airflow to maintain a cold box in the refrigerated section.
Just set the dial that does not turn the compressor off to the middle setting.
One can leave the thermostat that does control the compressor in the max setting , just not the colder freezer setting, If you notice colder isnt colder refrigerator, Its actually colder freezer, A common issue found on 25% of all refrigerator calls a simple setting adjustment.
Its easy to think that maxing out the settings makes for a colder refrigerator, it doesnt, it makes a colder freezer and warm rerigeration section.
If a freezer is making ice, theres nothing wrong with the unit other than airflow setting.
I would also clesan the condenser coils off.

Frig too warm, freezer too cold


if there is ice build up you have a defrost problem. either the heater bimetal thermostat timer or evap fan could be bad. you could also have a stopped up drain. if the coils get too much ice build up the air wont beable to travel through them and the bad air flow will cause the fridge to become warmer

Freezer section is cold, but the refrigerator section is not


set to colder refrigerator ... not colder freezer!! the fridge is reliant upon air migrating into the area from freezer side! if you peg both controls to max , you get a warmer refrigerator , but colder freezer, the control that does not operate the compressor is the setting i mean, it usually says .. for coldest and everyone pegs it and its a common cause for a service call and people cant believe it, if you cant tell which is which set both to middle! evfen at warmest setting the freezer should still make ice and thats the test for freezers state1 can it make ice!

The freezer is cold, but has stopped freezing,


This may be as simple as just turning the temperature dial for the freezer to a colder setting. Do that and wait a few hours and your problem may be solved.

Cold water


The law of thermodynamics states that heat travels from a hotter object to a colder object. In a refrigerator the temperature is colder and there for the heat leaves the water and into the colder air surrounding it. However nothing happens in a flash and the movement of the heat from the water takes time. The time is related to the volume being cooled. If to much water is being drawn it will be warmer.
