Freezer not cold enough

setting the freezer at 7 opens the baffle from the freezer to the fridge to make the fridge colder. It works completely opposite than a person would think. Feel in the back of the fridge with it on this setting. The freezer is dumping all its cold air into the fridge thus equalizing the two parts. if you move the selector to 1, you should feel the air from the freezer cut off in the fresh food compartment. try a setting in the middle and let sit for 24 hours. Hope this helps

Temperatures not staying cold, then getting too cold. First everything in freezer thawed out. Then, fridge wasn't cold enough. We moved everything to freezer just to keep colder (not to freeze). Then, days...

assuming fan now working. clean out vents/ drain holes (make sure no ice in bottom of freezer or in fridge unit)i.e. a total defrost.then check door seals all okay(no air leaks) if unit was trying to defrost itself and you reset to colder it will need to reset itself.....

Icing up, not defrosting corretly in freezer. Frig not staying cold enough.

Your refrigerator problem is directly related to your icing up - excess frost / icing up, defrosting problems causes cooling problems.
To rule out other problems shut down your unit and MANUALLy defrost it using a blowdryer, get all that ice buildup melted as well as the evap coils in your freezer - once it is fully defrosted put back the panel and turn on - give it a couple of hours to cool - if it cools properly, it is a defrost problem. Hopefully too, this resets your controlboard.

If problem returns eventually, you have a defrost timer problem and will need to get it checked - it can be any of the defrost components, controlboard, defrost thermostat, etc.

GE TFX26KRDA WW 2001 side by side refrig/freezer w warm fridge

Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.

Freezer cold not frozen, fridge cool but not cold enough.

HI, simply replacing the thermostat and air diffuser assembly will fix this cold control issue you are experiencing.

Freezer cold but not fridge

too much ice bulid up will stop enough cold air being blown into the fridge.Try turning it off letting all ice melt then turn it back on again and set thermostat at a lower temp.There may be ice you can't see.
