Fridge is not getting cold even though the thermostat is at 5

I have a TKR601/3 which has suddenly become not very cold inside. The motor is running (I can hear it) and everything else seems ok. I have put the thermostat up to 5 but it is still not cold in there.

Most friges take cool air from the freezer with a fan to cool the rest of the unit. I am not familar with your model but there should be a fan somewere in the back of your freezer. Also make sure you have space in back and to the sides of the fridge for air flow.

Rangemaster sxs cream . Why is my fridge and freezer the same temp ???? If anybody could give me an answer or solution.


Jason,
MOST refrigerators get there cold from the freezer side and circulate it via a fan that's also normally inside the freezer. There are three motors normally in a refrigeration system. The inside Evaporator fan motor that circulates air across the evaporator coil inside the box, the Condenser fan motor near the compressor that cools the freon after compression, and the compressor itself. If you open the doors (and sometimes you may have to hold in the door switches) do you hear a fan running? If not you could have a couple things going on: 1. The fan(s) has failed. 2. The freezer Evap coil may of iced over and the fan too is frozen stopped. 3. Your condensing unit:(compressor, condenser fan, condenser coils) has a problem.
It is important to know if the compressor itself is running. If there is a loose connection to the compressor via the start/over load relay (normally attaches directly onto the compressor), or if the start/over load otself is bad the compressor will not run. Best way to tell is via gauges but I doubt your frig has ports. Check to see if your compressor is really hot. Could be bad start/over load relay or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off even though fan continues to run. The fact your fan is running TYPICALLY means the thermostat is calling for lower temps and the fan/compressor kick in together.

GE TBX23 will not get cold. It has not been run in a year. Any ideas?


the obvious things to check is the temp gauge inside the fridge. is it turned up far enough? if so, then the gas inside the fridge is no longer useable. meaning you cant use the fridge anymore and a replacement is required.
even though the fridge has not been used in over a year, the gas inside acts just like battery does, if a battery does not get used for so long, the power still runs out and eventually the battery looses its charge, the gas in a firdge acts the very same way

Hello, our fridge has stopped working, the fan and motor are still running but the unit wont get cold anymore.I think it might be a freon problem but I cant be sure. The motor and fan are running constant


Your right! A freon leakage system problem cause no cold anymore.
But a temp control must be check.
A defective temp control will also cause no cold of the freezer.
The same also if compressor motor is defective even though it is running.
Call a service technician to verify the trouble of your fridge.
I hope I give you idea regarding your fridge problem.

The symptoms are consistent with a bad thermostat. Start with being sure fans Inside and at the Compressor are running and if so replace the thermostat, if the unit still malfunctions, you'd need a refrigeration tech.

it is possible that your fridge has developed a snag in its cooling system. what could be done from your end will be to first of all switch off the fridge for at least 8 hours. allow it to totally defrost. then switch on to see if the cooling returns. if so reduce the thermostat to 7 degrees and check. if the cooling returns then you will need to check for frosting inside due to failure of the thermostat or the auto defroster. if there is still no cooling then your gas has leaked, failureof the compressor, failue of the valves in the compressor could be suspected. Probe with these inputs. Good day

Freezer keeps frosting up and fridge doesn't get cold enough


Your defrost system isn't working. Check your defrost heater, defrost thermostat. http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php If they are OK the problem is the electronic control. Part 32 on this diagram. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/sect/i/2/w/i2wajbeu9f.gif

Water dispenser not working & fridge and freezer not getting cold


okay, most likely, your problem is your fan motor, its making your evaporator becoming a block of ice freezing your water lines but its not circulating the cold air through your refrigerator. remove the panel from inside the freezer and see if it has become a big white block of ice and the fan motor is turning. some fan motors will not work with the door open so you must manually press the light switch and see if the fan is blowing air.
if fan blades are not turning, replace the fan motor. but if it is blowing air and there's a big block of ice, unplug your fridge and let it thaw out. if after melting your fridge is running again, there's something wrong with your defrost system. that means check and replace your defrost heating element, defrost thermostat and or defrost timer.
i hope that helps with your problem. good luck!

There is a fan motor that blows the cold from the freezer to the refrigerator side. Listen for the inside fan when the compressor is running, and look to see if an adjustable air passage has become shut.
