Fridge started running warm. Turned almost all the way cold and its running about 41 degrees. Freezer is fine


The most common thing is the condensor coils in the freezer get ice on them and the defrost cycle does nto take place to clear the ice. The defrost timer might be bad.

On my GE GTH21SCXSS, top freezer bottom refer, the freezer and refrigerator settings are on the coldest settings and the freezer won't go below 15 degrees and the refer won't go below 43 degre


Do you see any ice buildup on the back panel of the freezer? You may need to remove the back panel to see if the coils are iced over. Post back your results.

Hi!!

You may have the temp. set TOO HIGH for the freezer, set it in #2, leave the fridge setting in the mid range for now. Check after 24hrs. and adjust as necessary.

Good Luck!!

Freezer side cold fresh side not GE GSH22KGMD


Find the return air It can't come in if it can't get out. also if you were checking it with the freezer door open you will not feel the air. Just in case i have done that myself. if all air ducts are open and it's getting o I should be 20 in fresh food with the control on 9.

Maytag MSD2456GEB fridge section warm


Please remember I am attempting to diagnose your appliance without being there and with very little information.
Sorry but if your freezer is 10 degrees, it is running warm. Freezer is designed to run between -10 and 0 degrees. Reset controls, place them in the middle of the scales. The controls can be confusing. The control that turns the unit on and off is your freezer thermostat and the other is the damper that controls the air flow from the freezer into the fresh food section. What I would think is wrong with your unit is one of two things.
  1. You have a defrost problem.
  2. Your inside fan is not running.
1. Look at the inside back panel of your freezer. If you have ice or frost built up on the panel, you most likely have a bad defrost heater.
2. Check to be sure you have air flow inside your fresh food section coming from your freezer. If not and your control is setting around mid-ways, you have a bad fan or your defrost heater is bad and ice is blocking the air flow.

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.

Fridge and freezer warm at top, colder but not normal on lower shelves


How old is this frig? If it is older that 12-15 years, get a new one. Make sure there is not blockage to keep the air from circulating properly. The vent from the freezer to the cooler should also be free from blockage as well.

GE model TFX22R ice maker problem


First clean out the condensor coils. If you have pets it should be done at least 3 times a year. The other possible problem is if the gasket in either the fridge or freezer is worn out or has a gap it will not cool properly. Check that the fan underneath the unit by the condensor coils is running when the compressor is . Some smaller refrigerators have only condensor coils on the back and no fan. These units should have room for air flow on top and sides not built in flush with cabinets. Buy a thermometer for both the fridge and freezer compartments. You run the risk of food poisoning if the fridge temp can not be kept below 40 degrees. Freezer temp should be able to keep at least 0 - 5 degrees. (Ice cream is a very good indication of proper temp. It is the first thing that melts. Ice maker is a close 2nd.)

If these things don't work call for repair. Don't risk losing all your food!

Warm Fridge Section


sounds like the evaporator fan in the freezer is not moving the air. also there is an air damper door at the top center of the fridge that controls air flow from the freezer to the fridge. check those two components and you will find your problem.
