Freezer too cold--refrigerator too warm


If the cold control is not adjusting the temp when you move it, that can be part of the problem.

Freezer way too cold, refrigerator side too warm on side by side.


This can be caused by lots of faults first inspect the evaporator in the back of the freezer for ice build up if this is the case the defrost system has a fault, if not the unit that opens between the wall of the freezer and the fridge may be faulty check for the grills opening and closing

Refrigerator will not maintain proper temperature


Check in the back of the fridge section; there is normally a control that is provided for 'balancing' the cold air between the two sections. That coolled air is distributed by a concealed fan that may not be running; you should be able to ear or feel the air movement when the unit is in a cooling cycle.

Refrigerator does not get as cold as I would like


First check the condensor fan and condensor for dust and make sure they are clean. If these areas are not clear the system will not operate correctly. You should be able to place your hand down low on the front of the frig and feel warm air coming out of the grate there. The presence of a flow of air meens that the condensor fan is working. Depending on how forceful the air flow is, would depend on how much dirt and dust the condensor has collected. The temp controls should be set to midway first. There is a dilicate balance for these settings. Over adjusting can cause problems. Then after several hours check the frig. If not cold enough. Adjust only the fresh food adjustment colder a little bit at a time. Repeating this untill your fresh food side is cold enough. If you over adjust the fresh food side too much then food in the fresh food side will begian to freez. If you set the freezer side too high you may be causing too much frost build up on the evaporator and lowering the air flow to the fresh food side and causing it to be warmer than it should be. This would be a check to see if you can balance the frig temp. If you can`t get it to balance and there are no restriction of air flow in either the evaporator or condensor, then we may have to look farther into problems with the compressor. You may need to check for some ice buildup around the air inlet in the fresh food side from the freezer side. Try this and let me know how it is.

Appliance: Frigidaire 3.1 Cu. Ft. Compact Refrigerator Problem: How do I adjust freezer temp in my mini-fridge with top frost free freezer, has turn dial for refrigerator but no turn dial for freezer and...


The turn dial that controls your fridge temp also controls the freezer temp. The freezer air is directly forced into the freezer compartment and then sent to the reigerator. Adjust the dial for the fridge not to be so cold and it will adjust the feezer also. Allow about 24 hours for any noticeable change.

The refrigerators accumulate ice


the fridge distrubutes cold by air movement. A overstuffed fridge can have trouble. There is a fan that blows a controlled amount of freezer air over to the food side, altho when this goes you usually have frozen freezer and food too warm. Make sure the air is allowed to move.
