Place a thermometer in your unit and get a good temperature reading for the current temperature. Unplug your unit and take the cover off the thermostat and remove the knob. Take the nut holding the thermostat to the plastic holder off. Thermostats vary but somewhere on the thermostat there will be a small screw or possibly allen socket. I forget which way I turned mine but turn the screw about a half a turn and then close the unit up and check the temperature again (overnight preferably). If it went in the right direction you're in good shape. If not, turn it back the same distance past the first setting and check it again. This resets the operating range of your thermostat.

The freezer is not enough cold, i check the defrost sensor, temperature sensor and its are ok, but the evaporator fan motor is not working... why? i check this fan too and is ok. Now what can i do??


It could be on automatic defrost mode, let it run for a while and see if it gets cold enough, also if you have the freezer to full and stuff near the cooling fan in the freezer, the freezer can not circulate to get cold.

Refrigerator side is not cold enough the Freezer side is fine, is there a fan that blowes the air from freezer into refrigerator and where is it located


Not necessarily. There may be 2 compressors on the back of the unit, one for each side. If no,t the fan will blow cold air from the freezer's evaporator into the fridge side and will be between the two.

Top of freezer is fine but the bottom isn't as


Sounds like your evaporator fan is not doing its job. The purpose of this fan is to move cold air from the evaporator coil (behind the lining of the unit) to the rest of the freezer and to the refrigerator.

The fan should be behind an access plate at the top of the freezer compartment. If it is running, you should be able to hear it. If you don't hear it, open the access plate and look at it. If the fan is not turning, you will need to replace the fan motor.

Refrigerator wont stay cold.Freezer works fine,no frost buildup


i replace the evaporator fan, this fan problem is hard to diagnose because the fan will spin but not fast enough to circulate the chilled air thru the freezer and the refrigerator. The minimum cost to repair/replace is around $300.00

Kemore brand - freezer works fine, refrigerator not cold,


The fresh food side is cooled by the freezer side through a duct between the two. It will have a small door that opens or closes depending on how cool you want the fresh food side. The door opens more as you adjust the temp for the fresh food side colder. If the duct is blocked in any way, then it would be like setting the temp setting for the fresh food side warmer and warmer. The freezer would be cold and the fresh food side would be warm. Set the temp to midway. Check for any obstructions to this duct. The evaporator fan is what moves the air to the fresh food side.. If the evaporator fan is not working, this could vary well is the problem. You may have to check the evaporator coil to see if it is frosted up enough to restrict air flow over the evaporator and to the fresh food side. If this helps you find your problem, please rate me. If there is anything else I can help you with, please ask. I am here to help you.

Fridge doesn't get cold enough


 If the evaporator fan is not running. The fan itself could be faulty or the door operated light/fan switch could be faulty.

If the evaporator fan is running. The fridge is not defrosting and ice has built up on the evaporator and the air is not circulating properly into the fridge compartment. The fan circulates cold air into the fridge and back through the fridge control which is normally just an adjustable flap which allows more or less cold into the fridge depending on the setting. If the fridge is not defrosting, the defrost timer could be faulty or heater element could be blown.

Cooling problems


Did you make sure the evaporator fan is working? I would check that and also make sure the evaporator is not all iced up. If it is iced you have a defrost problem and not with the sealed system. so check that out and get back if you can. Thanks
