The condenser coils could be plugged with dust and lint. The coils need to be able to get rid of the heat for the unit to cool properly .
uplug unit remove lower fiberboard cover and clean coils carefully.reassemble and see if that does it . Check fan if there is one for proper operation. Hope this helps

SOURCE: I get excess frost on

Hello Monkeyhouse,
I live in a monkey house of my own with two little girls climbing on everything. If your house is like mine the main reason for frost build up is warm moist air entering the freezer. My children love to open the door all the time so I get some frost from that. If you are really getting alot then you may have a crack in your seal around the door. or the door is not sealing completely. To solve the problem you can adjust the door or you can replace the seal. Replacing the seal is really harder than most people would care to tackle. But if you discover a bad spot on the seal this is the best way to replace it. First would be to buy you a seal and start it soaking in hot hot water. This will loosen the rigidity of the seal and help with seating. Once the seal is soft begin removing the old seal. You can do this byraising the inside of the seal and loosening the screws. Do not remove the screws completely just loosen enough to remove and replace a small section at a time. work the new seal around and once you feel it is perfectly centered on all sides tighted the screws. If you still have waves or the door is not sealing you may need to reheat the seal with a hair dryer. Use caution not to burn the seal or overheat the seal.. Over heating will cause it to shrink and it will never work. Good luck to you and please let me know it this helped.

SOURCE: IFrost Free Sharp Refridgerator & Freezer-Fridge not keeping cold

You have a defrost problem. You need either the defrost timer, defrost heater, or the defrost bi-metal. If you have a meter you can ohm out the heater and the bi-metal ( as lonh a s the bi -metal is frozen as it opens when it gets warm to cut out the defrost heater) if you have an ohm reading on either one of the two the replace the defrost timer, if you don't then replace the part that has no ohm reading.

SOURCE: freezer is cold but refridgerator is warm. older

Your defrost circuit is probably broken.

Are you getting lots of frost on the bottom of your freezer?

Is there any airflow in the top portion of the fridge? You can test this by blowing a little cigarette smoke into the refrig section to watch the air pattern.

If you have excessive frosting above and no air may be time for either a new heating element or a defrost controller board.

Some older units allow you to just turn on the defrost circuit and see if the heating element has gone bad. You may want to buy the controller first if it fails the forced power on test. Then, if that doesnt do can buy and replace the heating element.

Good luck and be careful.

Firdge turns on but never gets cold. Runs constantly. Refridgerant maybe?

Is the condenser fan turning? Is the evaporater fan turning? Check the evaporater at the freezer compartment it should have fine frost all the way if no frost or partly frosted may be low on freon.Be sure there is no air leaks around door or something. Hope this helps.

Bought a brand new LG bottom freezer fridge a couple of months ago. I like the refridgerator part to be cold, so we keep the fridge temp on 6 (1-7 are temp choices. 7 being the coldest). We had the freezer...

If designed as most combination units, one of the two controls influences the temperature directly, the other only determines how much of the generated cold air is allowed to enter the other compartment. The typical arrangement is that setting the freezer temperature determines how often often the compressor runs; the other diverts a portion of the cold air into the refrigerator side.
Using the common thermometer for cold temperatures (~$5 US), adjust the freezer temperature for 0 to -5 degrees F (the often recommended temp.), then the other control for the desired refrigerator temperature, suggested as 35-45 F. This is the most common practice.
If you cannot balance them the way you want, reverse the procedure, setting for refrigerator temp., then freezer.

Refridgerator temperature

I think it may be a defrost system problem. If you have frost on the back wall the problem is related to the defrost timer or defrost heaters or thermostat.

Also check the condenser for dust. If plugged with dust the system can not get rid of the heat. If dust is present clean it out completely.
Remove the toe plate under the refrigerator door to check the condenser.

Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refridgerator

I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........

In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.

Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.

Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)

Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.

Freezer works fine refridgerator does not

problem may be that the return vent from freezer to fridge is blocked with ice. best solution is to switch off for 24 hours with doors open. 2 hours may not be long enough to clear this blockage
