Take the cover off the control box and see if there is a thermostat with a capillary tube attached. If the tube is leaking or crushed, it wont work right.

Your fridge is working against outside air tempurature and any solar heating effect. To maximise the operation of your fridge allways try to park the unit so the fridge side will be in the shade. Do you have a fan to create the air circulation in the back of the fridge? There are kits available for this. I use a recovered converter fan and have it set up in the bottom of the fridge cavity below the coils and blowing straight up. This helps a lot. The kits normally come with a 80 degree F temp switch, I have a leftover toggel from some where for mine. I don't think your fridge is the problem. I don't think a new one will fix it. Your best bet is to do the kind of thing I have above and it should work better. Hopefully good enough. Good Luck

Where is the reset button on my electrolux fridge?


Good Afternoon Friend, thank you for your post! I see the temperature in your Electrolux refrigerator is too warm and would like to know how to reset it. May I please have your model number? The serial tag, which lists your model number, is typically located inside the cabinet, on the right side wall. With this information I can better address the issue at hand. In the meantime, please double check the temperature control. If the temperature is set too warm, set control to a colder setting and allow 24 hours for temperature to stabilize. Thank you - Z.

My fridge part of fridge/freezer doesn't work


Post the model number of the refrigerator. Defrost freezer behind where the cold air circulates with a hair drier. (unplug power first!) Most times when a refrigerator side stops cooling it is because the freezer evaporator behind the panel in the back of freezer (most times) has become blocked by frost=> SEE PHOTO Most times the panel before you see the frosted covering the evaporator will begin to show a layer of frost building=> SEE PHOTO (Click each photo to enlarge.) Sometimes the fresh food section of the refrigerator side will warm because ice or frost will block the damper from moving that regulates temperatures in the fresh food section. Sometimes the damper is defective and sometimes the sensor that controls the damper movement is defective. For these reasons it is important that you provide your model numbers so someone knows just what type refrigerator you have to cover all of the possibilities of what may be wrong causing the warming of the fresh food section and soon the freezer section will also begin to warm. The most likely cause are the defrost control, ADC Adaptive Defrost Control, defrost heater, defrost thermostat, air damper and air damper sensors in that order. Let me know what you have and I will try to identify just what may be happening, Thanks Sea Breeze

GE side by side. Top shelf in fridge warm. bottom drawers frozen. Freezer working fine. Seems to be blowing a lot of cold air out the vents by the floor. Top shelf in fridge is 55 degrees. Diffuser...


Hi, I'm Mark.
Check the position of the two controls at the top of the unit inside the fresh food compartment. SET BOTH controls to the 12 o'clock position. Wait about a hour, then check temperatures. Then wait another hour and check temperatures again. Record the values on a piece of paper. When you do check fridge temperatures, do so quickly as the compartments become warm just a few seconds after the doors are opened. Please let me know what happens to the fresh food readings.
Thanks, Best Regards,
Mark

Our fridge keeps creeping up to 10 degrees Centigrade despite defrosting every week. It must need some fan to keep the air cool and circulating from the freezer which works well?


If your freezer side is capable of making ice, and that ice is dry and remains so,

the only issue you have is insufficient airflow to the reefer box section from the freezer.

The refrigerator section is 100% reliant upon the frezers side for all of its cold air.

The refer box has no evaportator of its own, There are 2 settings or dials.



One is the temperature thermostat, it actually controls the compresssor motors cycling,

thus the desired ice box temperature as well, it often says 1-10 and off as well, the reamaining setting, the one that cannot turn the compressor motor either off nor on is a damper door controller, that modulates the freezers airflow into the reefers box!This is where the problems occur, when one notices the reefers box is warm, they max both settings,which seems logical , and is for the thermostat dials setting.Where the major counter intuitive reality exists is the flapper dooors setting will say Colder and Warmer!!Colder of course!! right?? No, it actually means and usually does say, Colder Freezer!!not Colder Reefer! so you MAX or RAISE the thermostat, thats ok to do.But maxing or raising the other setting is just starving the reefer box section from sufficient cold air flow to maintain adequate temps.I have gone to hundreds of identical calls, Freezers ok, but Reefers warm! If the freezers making ice and the ice is dry, there is no problem with the refrigeration system, its airflow.when defrost timers or heaters fail the symptoms may be as yours, however the freezer will slowly warm in another day or so. But if the freezers making ice for days and never getting wet theres an airflow issue period, you may need to remove the back wall panel in the freeezer to see the coils condition , is it iced up or blocking airflow with icing/ is the ducting open between the freezer and reefer boxes?setting both dials to the midway setting should work fine. the condenser coils may be dirty/dusty too, is the cardboard backing still in place on back? it needs to be there intact.

is there product inside the reefer box? if not add 3 gallons of water.

My 9 yr old Kenmore Elite fridge is warming up!! The freezer is fine!!!! Model 3 106*74902401 Seriel # ES423704 Manufacture date is 10/2005, I purchased it in Dec of '05 and it's been WONDERFUL!!


This problem sounds like a damper control broken or frozen.
Lowering the freezer temperature may help to fix the problem as the damper sometimes freezes and not able to open to cool down the fridge side.

If lowering the freezer temperature doesn't help, you may need to call for a technician to fix or replace the damper control.

Also, be sure the door closes properly and no air comes in or out from the fridge.

Kitchen Aid Fridge KSRF25FRBL00 - Hot Panel between doors


This strip is warmed to prevent condensation forming here during humid weather. Some models use a refrigerant pass of the compressor to warm this strip other use a heater that can be controlled by a 2 position switch in the refrigerator control panel that reads something like "Turn this on if moisture appears on cabinet exterior". If you have no such switch you should be aware that the strip is ALWAYS warm but barely noticeable until you develop a problem in the cooling system.

Check temperatures in the freezer (Zero Degrees approx.) and refrigerator (Approx. 30). If these are normal don't worry about the heat from that strip. If you find a temperature not normal you have the beginning of a cooling problem unrelated to that strip.
