Fridge not cooling

I cleaned out my fridge Thurs night (today is Sat, Oct 13) and now it doesn't seem to be cooling.  I had the door open about an hour.  I didn't hit any switches - just did the cleaning.  The light is on and the freezer seems to be fine. 

What am I missing?

Re: fridge not cooling

It might be that the fan motor somehow got disconnected or worn out, or that the fan itself is stuck.  It’s located in back of the freezer.  Gently unscrew the back and check it out.  You might also have to unscrew the thermostat housing if it is on the top of the fridge part.  If the fan is turning, it’s okay.  If not, turn the thermostat down to its lowest setting and see if it turns on.  If not, unplug it and test it with a continuity tester.  If, there’s no continuity it will need to be replaced.  Good luck.

Freezer working but fridge part not cooling ( Fridgidaire top freezer )

Try turning off the unit from the wall, keep the doors of the fridge and freezer open over night. Make sure you save food as much as possible or it may go bad. Next morning you will see a puddle of water under and around the fridge. Clean that up and connect. It should work. Make sure the settings are ok. Good luck.

Refrigerator starts cooling mainly when I open the door

Put a thermometer in both the freezer and the fridge. Fridge should be around 40F if not a little lower, but should stay above 30F.

Freezer should be just below 30.
