Could be that the defrost system is not working, or that the evap. fan is not running. Call a technician to look at it.

How to lower freezer temperature


Not sure what you mean by the freezer too cold? The freezer section should be at or below 0 degrees C or 32 degree F. if its working properly. If the FF section is too warm and your temp control door or vent is at max cold either the vent is not moving (stuck in the closed position) or the fan in the freezer is not working.

The freezer is cold but the lower section is warm.


If your freezer section has a knob that says "Colder" then set it to the left instead of
to "Colder"
Many people mistake this for a cold control but it only closes off airflow to
the lower compartment from the freezer section.
The freezer supplies cold air to the lower compartment. You may also want to see if the vent to the lower compartment is
blocked with ice. (The vent duct is the plastic duct in the freezer compartment).
hope this helps.

Fridge section of fridge freezer not cold despite turning thermostat to max. Freezer section appears to be working fine.


Make sure that if it has a "colder" knob in the freezer section that it is not set all the
way over to coldest. This blocks all cold air entering the lower compartment when
set this way. It actually has been eliminated on some models.

Also you may have ice buildup in the stack assembly that feeds
the lower compartment or even a frozen upper compartment behind the back
panel of the freezer limiting air flow to the lower compartment. Make sure to unplug unit if service is necessary in these areas. I hope this is helpful.

Refrigerator less than two months old. Freezer side fine refrigerator side stopped working altogether. All food ruined. Who should I contact. purchased from Home Depot.


This is a very common issue, If the freezer compartment is cold and making ice the
problem is simply airflow from the freezer into the refrigerated section.
Typically when one senses the refrigerator is warm they max out the settings
on both dials the thermostat with its 1-10 settings as well as off for the compressor.
This controls the compressor and temperature.
The additional setting or dial is for colder freezer or refrigerator as well , However
it simply opens or closes a flapper door between the freezer and refrigerator boxes.
When that dial or setting is maxed , it closes and makes the freezer colder, yet leaves the refrigerated section starved for sufficient airflow to maintain a cold box in the refrigerated section.
Just set the dial that does not turn the compressor off to the middle setting.
One can leave the thermostat that does control the compressor in the max setting , just not the colder freezer setting, If you notice colder isnt colder refrigerator, Its actually colder freezer, A common issue found on 25% of all refrigerator calls a simple setting adjustment.
Its easy to think that maxing out the settings makes for a colder refrigerator, it doesnt, it makes a colder freezer and warm rerigeration section.
If a freezer is making ice, theres nothing wrong with the unit other than airflow setting.

Freezer cold fridge warm


sounds like the evaporator in the freezer section is iced up and you need to see if the defrost section is working correctly,then as for the warm refrige side,it sound as if the vent damper door is frozen shut or the cold control in the refrige isn't opening it to let cold air into the refrige from the freezer,if its frozen take a hand held hair dryer and remove the vent grille over it and defrost it and then check to make sure the control opens and closes it as you adjust its control in the refrige

Freezer does not get as cold as the setting made but refrigerator


If the unit is working correctly, it could be that you are trying to adjust the freezer with the wrong knob. The fresh food section is cooled by forced air from the freezer and can get about as cold as the freezer if not adjusted correctly. The thermostat its self controls only the temp in the freezer. Some times telling which is which is confusing. Here is the best way to tell the difference.
The knob that will turn the unit off is the thermostat. The other one controls how much air can be forced into the fresh food section. The thermostat should be adjusted to where the freezer stays around -10 degrees. The other knob should be set so the the fresh food section stays between 35 and 38 degrees. If this does not help or if you find that there is indeed a problem with you unit, please get back with me and I'll be glade to walk you through diagnosing the problem.
Please post a rating if solution is helpful. Thanks

Refridgerator side not cold freezer side fine


Difficult to properly diagnois with such a brief description, but try the following as a good first step at correcting the problem. Reset the freezer and fridge thermostat settings at the factory default. Also, check the freezer section to make sure nothing is blocking the cold air supply vent into the fridge, do the same on the fridge side too.

Normally is the freezer is working fine, and the fridge is warm, it can be due to either a blockage of the cold air cross vent by items in either the freezer, fridge, or both, preventing proper cold air flow from the freezer into the fridge. Also, check to see if the cold air vent is not frozen or obstructed, with a fashlight (you;ll need to remove stuff from fridge and freezer to make this possible to check.

If the vent is not obstructed and you can clearly feel cold air passing from the freezer into the fridge, it is possible that the cold air vent control has ceased operating properly and needs to be replaced. Usually though this type of problem is caused by people over stuffing things into the freezer section and blocking the cold air cross over vent. Hope this helps.

Refrigerator does not get cold


In your freezer section, there should be a "control" for the freezer temp. I say "control" because the knob is attached to a flap that only controls airflow the the lower section. If the knob is turned to coldest it will block almost all of the air from getting into your fresh food section.
