1 Answer

Moved refrig this morning and now it is not cooling... freezer works great

I have a Admiral side by side white refrigerator that's about 9 years old ..I have never had a single problem with it ... I got a new black refrigerator yesterday ( remodeled kitchen ) and gave my mom my old white one... we moved it about 6 hours ago over to my moms house about 1/2 mile away... Freezer is working great... food frozen solid... the refrigerator is only cooled down after 6 hours to 50 degrees.... it was plugged in before we moved it and was cold... any ideas why the freezer would be working great and the refrigerator not seem to be cooling to the degree that it should...

Hih, Check and see if something has stopped the condenser fan motor down by the compressor from turning. Sometimes this happens in a move.
Also make sure the controls didn't get turned to wrong settings. Make sure evaporator fan motor is working in freezer and that there is no frost building up on the rear panel.
Just some ideas to help you.
lease let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Refrigerator does not cool below 50. Freezer side is ok


all cooling comes from thefreezer, lower down air flow to freezer and increase air flow to refrigerator, this should help.

Side by side Admiral freezer freezes but fridge


check the damper vent door between the refrige and freezer and make sure its opening up to let cold air from freezer into the refrige,sometimes they freeze up and cant open and close when called upon to do so,if so deice it with a hair dryer,the side being hot is good telling you the compressor is operating correctly

Cold but not frozen


23 years old ? That thing was costing you more than a new unit would cost for the past 5 years!
Assuming your airflows are good, Its time for a new refrigerator.

Same as 6-9-08 freezer ices up, frig won't cool


Not sure if this will help but I have/had a similar problem with my admiral side by side (approx 12 yrs old not sure of the model #)and I think I fixed it this morning..
At the back of the fridge compartment I removed the cover (covers the light and controls) the Freezer setting just seems to adjust a flap that sends cold air into the fridge.. around the flap was a mass of ice.. what seemed to be happening was as this 'vent' was blocked with ice no cold air entered the fridge and the temp stayed high and hence the stat did not cut out .. compressor running flat out 24/7..... I removed the ice and it now seems to be working better (2-3 hrs will see what its like when I get home from work..!)

Wards/Admiral refrig/freezer


I put the fridge in manual defrost by advancing the timer. The defrost heater worked so the problem was with the timer not advancing to defrost every 6 hours. The plastic gears wear out over time.
