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.

It seems like our refrigerator is not cooling well. The lower part of the refrigerator is a little cooler, but the top shelf area is not. We bought this about 4 years ago- new.

We bought our frig exactly 6 years ago (to the date!) and suddenly the frig part is cool, but not cold, while the freezer section stay cold and ice is frozen.


Check your freezer section ! Is the coil frozen over ? If so it may have a burnt out defrost element or a bad defrost timer. When the freezer coil freezes over cold air is restricted to the refrigerator section.

Refrigerator and freezer barely get cold.


Sounds like the condenser fan may not be running. It is located under the rear of the unit. The coils may be covered with dirt too. Either will cause the problem. If you cannot find the problem you should call a servce tech to look at it.
