first off the freezer is cold but not cold enough?if the freezer isn't working right then the fridge is gonna be warm too,all it does is get cold in the freezer and the evap fan blows cold air into the fridge,that's it.i need you to do a few checks for me,open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing around,if not you could have a bad evap fan motor,next from the bottom up remove the second bin from the bottom and touch the back wall,do you feel any ice or snow on the back wall.if so you have a defrost problem,possible computer board,defrost thermostat or heater.let me know what you find.one more thing did this happen after you cleaned it or did you clean it to try to see if it would help?
There can be many reasons why your
refrigerator is freezing your food. To see what could be happening
and to figure out how to possibly fix your problem. Take a look at
this tip which contains many of the causes and solutions to fix the
the temp should be around 35-40 in the fresh side and below freezing in the freezer. If the probe is positioned wrong then it may not shut off. Does the probe need to be in the freezer compartment?If the freon level is wrong then the freezer may not get cold enough to shut down the control tstat. The low side pressure should be around 5 PSI.
Inside the fresh food compartment on top left there is something called an air baffle. It runs between the freezer and fresh food compartment and its purpose is to electrically control the amount of cold air coming from the freezer. Sometimes they freeze open and will not close. So you may need to turn off the refrigerator during the time you examine it. Look for ice blocking the movement of the baffle damper. Sometimes just one time clearing the problem is all you need to fix it. Let me know what you find and if you are able to get it going again, Thanks, Sea Breeze
The problem is a defrost problem. The freezer coil has frost on it and thus restricts the cold air from flowing. This affects the refrigerator as it gets its cold air from the freezer. The ice will not make if the temperature is above 12*F and this also is why ice cream is like mush.
Sometimes the smell comes from something in the freezer or even the refrigeratior and makes the ice taste funny. My suggestion is to clean out the freezer compartment of anything frozen that has been there a while and may have freezer burn. That may be the funny smell you are experiencing.
Hope this will help you.
You said, You noticed there was condensation in my fridge and a strange smell
coming from it, also my freezer was cold but didn't seem to be cold
enough, I have a digital display and it was still showing -22 for
freezer and 3 for fridge. I turned the power off on the wall and when i
turned it back on which was straight away it shown -3 for freezer and
16 for fridge... I then noticed the ice cream in freezer very watery,
however ice in freezer still frozen? i pressed the quick freeze button
which eventually the temperature came back up but i keep getting the
exact same problem... Can you help. thank you. Samsung side by side refrigerator SR-S2025CVW
How old is the fridge?
You did all the right things!!
But this sounds like a bad thermostat. or a bad control switch.
Unfortunately it sounds like you may need service to do an hands on diagnoses and replacement of one of these parts I listed here! Let me know how you do! Or if you need something else. We do have very good sponsors here on this site that do repair work, should you take this course!
Just had mine with the same problem fixed today,it was the main board on the rear of the fridge,common problem with these models told by the tech.
I believe you can get a free board fom ge but you pay labour
