Question about Kenmore 63074 Top Freezer Refrigerator

Freezer is staying cold (below 0), but Fridge won't cool

Our fridge has stopped working. We have checked the coils to make sure they are clear of dust/debris...fine, we've checked the thermostat -- fine, we have checked the fan -- working appropriatly. What is strange is our freezer is fine...staying at 0 degrees or lower. Our fridge won't cool lower than 61 F...and this is the coolest setting. We suspect the compressor. Any thoughts?

    Freezer is staying pretty cool up top but the ice maker in freezer is not making ice as well below is warm and not getting cool. Hear the compressor running and sounds normal.

GE Profile Refridgerator side warm, freezer ok?


Fridge gets cold air from freezer to cool it. Your freezer is fine but not enough cold air is getting into fridge compartment. U have some dampers or louvers that direct air flow to fridge and if they are not set properly cooling will not be adequate. Check those out.

Freezer works fidge dont


Some fridges only cool the freezer, there is an evaporator fan motor that then blows are from the freezer into the fridge to cool it. You may need to replace the fan. ($30) It usually starts squealing before it goes. The fan is located in the freezer section probably at the top behind a vented cover. Check to make sure it spins very freely in not replace it. It could be your drain is plugged or frozen, pull out the fridge and look at the bottom to see where the hose enters the fridge, pour some hot water down from inside the fridge to see if it is clear if not, clear the hose.

Freezer gets 10 below 0 and fridge is 60 degrees


Check and clean the condensor coils. Make sure the air ducts are free f frost and not blocked by anything. Make sure the light is turning off when the door is closed.

Refrigerator cools, but not cool enough, even with temp adjustment turned to coldest setting. Freezer only gets down to 0. Fridge at 44 degrees


If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..


check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Fridge on Fridge freezer not working


Ok there is a drain pan under the evap. coil under the fan that may be clogged and full of ice there is a 3/4" hole the water drains out of that needs cleared if there is a puddle of ice over it , the ice will also effect the airflow traveling down the duct to the fresh food section of the unit.
If there is no ice puddle at the bottom of the refrigerator then make sure the unit is cooling well by making sure it has been running for 10 min. or so and checking the coil in the freezer , it should have a small layer of frost on it showing its getting cold the whole way through it. Let me know how this works.
