The light should go off when you close the door. The fanmotor does not operate if the door is open. If it is a frost free unit, it is possible that your defrost system is not working and therefore building up ice in the freezer section and preventing the circulation of cold air to the fridge part.

I have a side by side double door fridge. My freezer is cold and working fine but my fridge side is not getting cold.


check yor damper door, it's the little door at the top and or bottom of the fridge insid near the top and or at the bottom behind the crisper drawer when working right they open to let cold air in from the freezer and warm air out. top one cold in, bottom one warm air out.they work on a sensor/relay when the freezer fan goes on they open when cold air is needed.

I own a KIC Fridge the problem is that the door does not closes the rubber does not grip tightly when closing. I have to sometimes lean on the fridge for 5-10 seconds for it to close and it sometimes does...


Hi did anyone get back to you on this? I have a KIC Fridge and it does the same... take out the top door shelf/rack but then you MUST unscrew the light (cause otherwise your light never goes off and your food doesn't stay cold) cause the top shelf/rack in the door switches off the light... anyway... once the top shelf is out, the door will close better.... not sure how else to fix it though...

Bottom wont stay cold top frezer it work bottom ref. wont saty cold and the light work and the fan blowing so im looking for why it wont stay cold at the bottom reg.


make sure you don't have the air flow passages in the back of the freezer blocked with food items or frost. if you have alot of food or items in the freezer and its packed tight it won't let the cold air circulate into the bottom unit

Wont get cold


check to see if there is excessive frost build up inside of the freezer on the back panel. If so you may have a defrost problem or your fan motor in the freezer may be bad. Open the drawer to the freezer and see if the fan comes on when you push the light switch. What brand is this unit?

Fridge wont stay cold in the bottom.


Your frost free is not defrosting properly. There should be no ice buildup in the freezer section. Frost in the freezer section stops air circulation to the refrigerator section.

Sounds like the damper isn't opening. Put you hand on the Left wall of the fridge side, at the top. If you feel No Air. Then there is your issue. Bad Damper Motor. Also check the back wall of the freezer, there sould be No Frost. If there is then you have a defrost issue. Not a damper problem. One more thing. Make sure when you shut the fridge door, the light goes out. About a half inch or so before the door is completly shut, the light will go out, if not then thats your issue. Let me know how you make out.

Refrigerator not cooling properly


You may have a low freon condition in the fridge section. Look to see if you have an ice block building up on the rear wall towards the lower left side. If so, you are low on freon and the ost likely culprit is a leaking evaporater. The best way to tell if you are low on freon for sure is to take out all the shelves, remove the light cover, then the 2 screws holding the fan cover, and then remove the back wall. You wont be able to pull it all the way out cause the cold control is attached to it for the freezer and fridge so be careful. Turn the fridge control all the way up to 10 and wait till the compressor is running. you can tell if the compressor is running by pushing in the little switch on the top of the door frame and seeing if the fan runs(one switch is for lights, the other for fan) if it runs the compressor is on. anyway watch the coils and see if they develop frost all the way from top to bottom. If they dont you are low on freon and are ooking at about a $600 repair. if it does frost all the way you may have a bad cold control or a stalling fan motor up by the condensor on top. The best way to tell this is the next time the fridge feels warm, sheck the frame around the door seal and see if it is hot to the touch. If it is you almost surley have a bad condensor fan motor. Hope you can wade through all tis to find the answers. Good Luck!
