You probably need a recharge or the thermostat is not working properly.

SOURCE: Frig will not cool

I had a similar problem. One thing that I need to know is is it cooling at all? If everything is operating, but no cooling occurs, you may have a bad board. This controls all of the components. Getting it replaced could be pretty pricey. Good luck, and please rate.

Freezer will not freeze ice cream and is not cold enough, fans are running,frig seems cool enough


Make sure that the evaporator is not covered with ice or the back of the freezer compartment is not a sheet of ice. If so, there is an issue with the self defrosting components of unit. Self defrost timer, defrost heating element, defrost thermostat.

Ice serves as an insulator and will prevent the freezer from going down to where it is supposed to be. And if you have an ice maker it will not function unless temps are below 10 degrees.

If the defrost mechanism is fine and you have no ice back there then it is possible that you are low on refrigerant.

My ge GSS22WGMCBB is not getting cold eonough - frig reads 60 degrees, freezer reads 38 degrees. What can be wrong? It's 10 years old...should I get it fixed or replace it?


either the compressor isn't running due to a faulty PTC overload relay on the compressor body or a bad compressor itself,you can test the compressor with an ohmmeter between the 3 terminals on the side of the compressor PTC is mounted,if its ok then it can be a defrost problem where its not melting the evaporator ice and blocking the cold air flow remove the inner rear wall of the freezer and test the defrost heater located below the evaporator coil as G.E. defrost heaters are notorious for failing,if its ok,then the defrost terminator on top of this coil can be bad(open)to test this component it needs to be below 15 degrees temperature to show good(closed) if ok then the mainboard located in the rear back of the unit can be defective because it controls all the units functions

HI PAUL.FREEZER NOT COOLING could be for many reasons.go through the basics first .1-check if your freezer is iced up 2 if yes defrost it all completely first .then turn on 3-if ok then your problem could be 4-defrost timer 5-defrost heater 6-t/stat.if not iced up then check /clean thoroughly the condenser unit 7-check con/fan 8-check condenser should be warm/hot.if cold and motor hot then it could be lack of refrigerant (internal leak?) hope this helps.ALI

Kenmore Refrig Model # 75922400 top Freezer. Freezer is freezing really good but frig is around 46 - 48 degrees at coldest setting. We discovered ice on vents in freezer and thawed them out with hair...


Sounds like a defrost failure.
Look on the back wall of the freezer from the inside.
If it is covered in ice your defrost system has failed.
Also check the fan motor in the freezer.
If it is not running it must be replaced.

Our Amana frig temperature is approximately 60 degrees with the lower freezer under 32 degrees. The unit is running constant. Any repair solutions would be appreciated.


Check and see if the fan is running in the freezer. If not may be bad or frozen. If is running check and see if there is any frost in the freezer if the fan is in the back then check the back wall of the freezer. If yes the it is not defrosting . Thaw it out for 24 hours and it will work for a week or so but it will need either a defrost timer, heater or thermostat.

This is one time you might need gas. Your freezer needs to be 20 degrees or less for the ice maker to work.

Kenmore refrigerator 5260 not cold


  • the defrost timer on your machine is actually integrated within a control board/air diffuser. hopefully that is not the problem (expensive).
  • i would start by testing the heater and bimetal thermostat in the freezer. (note: the bimetal thermostat will only have continuity when below 40 degrees.)
  • the heat you feel between the doors is normal (if it is not too hot). 
  • some of the heat that is released by the machine is intentionally released between the doors to prevent condensation.
  •  if it seems warmer than usual then you might need to clean the coils under the machine and make sure the airflow under the machine is not obstructed at all. 
  • if the coils are dirty then they will not be able to release the heat properly and the heat will be released in other areas like between the doors.
