An hour aint enough. Turn off fridge, use blow drier, thers a huge ice cube behind that sheetmetal wall back of freezer inside wall, it takes 48 hours at 75 degrees to let it do itself. Listen for inside motor, its obvious. If so, you hve a defrost problem.

Why is my refrigerator temperature dropping and freezing food, but freezer temp holds.


Hello Michael, I appreciate your inquiry!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire refrigerator is dropping the temperature within the fresh food side. The damper is located within the back of the fresh food side and this part will open and close so that the cold air from the freezer will come into the fresh food side. It is possible that this damper can be stuck open or staying open for too long. Do you notice any frost developing within the freezer? If so, please perform a manual defrost on the refrigerator and you can do that by disconnecting power from it for at least one hour. If there is no frost within the freezer then check to make sure no packages are holding the damper open. You may need to replace the damper or the damper motor and I would recommend having a professional technician out to perform proper replacement repairs. Best of luck! -Matt

The Refrigerator's Freezer is not working but the fridge is, what is wrong?


You probably have one compressor that cools the freezer section and the refrigerator section. Usually the freezer gets cooled directly with the cooling coils. A fan blows cool air to the refrigerator section. The air flow to the refrigerator may be modulated with some time of "air door". What you have written says to me, is that the fans and air doors are working but there is enough cold for the refrigerator but not enough for the freezer.

Here is what I would do:
  1. Put a thermometer in the refrigerator and in the freezer.
  2. Be sure the coils underneath or behind the refrigerator are clean. If they are very dirty, clean them.
  3. Keep the doors shut for at least 12 hours and then read the thermometers and write down the temperatures.
  4. Freezer temperature
    1. If the freezer has started freezing again, you fixed it by cleaning the coils
    2. .If the freezer temperature is between 0 deg F and 32 deg F, consider putting the food in a cooler and packing in some dry ice to try and save it.
    3. If the freezer is warmer than 32 deg f, throw away the food.
    4. Doctors and hospitals are pretty expensive. I would throw away the food no matter what the thermometer read.
  5. Look inside the freezer at the cooling coils. See if they are ice coated or not.
    1. If the freezer is above 0 deg F, and the coils are ice covered, the defrost control is not working. Unplug the refrigerator for 12 hours and let the ice melt. (Keep the doors shut.) Then, plug in the refrigerator for 12 hours and check the temperature like in step 3.
    2. If the freezer is above 0 deg F, and the coils are NOT ice covered, the compressor is not working.
  6. Call the service technician. When she comes out show her the temperatures and tell her what you found out about the ice on the coils.
Good luck

Hey Rkraft,

i may have answered that question in the comment ya posted on the other Monogram

But now as i think about it how is the frost pattern on it is part of the evap coil covered in ICE (not frost) that could be a sign of a sealed system problem but only if part of the evap coil is iced up and the tube i spoke about on in that other comment isnt frozen

Freezer temp is set to 5 and fresh food temp is blinking 4, watering running from fresh food side. Fresh food side is not working. What is the problem


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

Hello what temp should i have my fridge/freezer at the freezer unit is working but the top is warm, thanks, Sheryl


Sheryl -

Most manufacturer's suggest 0 deg F for the freezer, and 34 deg F for fresh food compartment. You determine the fresh food temperature by filling a 6 to 8 oz glass with cold water and placing a thermometer (capable of reading 32 deg F) in the water. Place the glass & thermometer on a shelf in the fridge. Allow it to assume the temperature on the fridge and hour or so. The glass of water is to minimize rapid increase in temperatures seen when the door opens.

Make your adjustments from there. Allow temperatures to stabilize for up to 24 hours if the fridge is full, much less if empty before making additional changes.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Left not transfering cold enough air to right side. doesn't get colder than 50 degrees, why?


Remove back panel of freezer (where you see the frost) and melt the frost with a hair blower. The frost blocked evaporator coils are not allowing air to pass over the cold coils, so no cold air is able to get to the fresh foods section. You will most likely need to replace the defrost heater at the bottom of the evap coils to prevent this from reoccurring in two weeks time.
